Review - Hardball by CD Reiss

Title: Hardball
Author: CD Reiss
Genre: Contemporary/Sports Romance
 Release Date: March 29, 2016


Perfect ass.
Perfect arms.
Perfect swagger.

They call Dash Wallace the Diamond King.
He’s the hottest commodity in baseball and in the bedroom.
When he runs the bases, every woman’s eyes are glued to his stunning body and a smile that puts the night lights to shame.
I’m no queen. I’m a regular girl with a regular job. I just watch him on TV and from the bleachers, season after season.

Girls like me grab a guy like that one in a million times.
My number just came up, and he is as spectacular in bed as he is on the field.
But there’s not a woman in the world who can distract Dash Wallace from the game. Not for a moment. Not even me.
Until the night I do. And everything changes.

Hardball is a SMOKING HOT, SEXY romance with a touch of angst and a ton of heart from CD Reiss. It's a fun, witty, full-length standalone meant for the over-eighteen crowd.

Author Bio

CD Reiss is a USA Today bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn't pick up she's at the well hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master's degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.

She's frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn't ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.

My 5 Star Review

Vivian is just a regular girl, she works as a librarian at an elementary school. She is actually working when she meets Dash Wallace, the famous short stop player. Vivian and her father are huge baseball fans, so she is very excited to meet the team as part of a field trip. 

Dash lives his life following these small superstitious. Every decision he makes follows a strict routine, he is terrified of upsetting the balance in his life. When circumstances bring Dash and Vivian back together he finds it hard to just let her go, but he can’t really offer her more or it would throw off his carefully balanced routine. 

Vivian and Dash are such a great couple because they both grow with each other and I love that in stories. Naturally this book is plenty hot and sexy like all of Reiss’s books. I literally enjoyed every word and moment between Dash and Vivian. Their connection was fun, sexy and addictive.

What truly blew my mind and really just amazed me was how well Dash was written. Dash suffers from ADHD and I swear reading his parts I could really see and feel this, I could imagine his struggles and really empathize with him. To me Reiss just took writing the male POV to the next level. 

We all know Reiss can deliver sexy, suspenseful and beautifully written stories, but I just love it when she writes these fun sexy reads. Hardballis definitely one of my favorite sports romance books.
