Baseball is life, the rest is just details.
Everyone who’s played the game has heard those words a time or two. But Hancock has heard them his entire life from his parents. His family has lived and breathed baseball even before he started little league.
Hancock “Parts” Peters has a name that inspires grins across many faces, but the moment those faces get their first look at him, those grins slide away.
Hancock is gruff, filterless, and doesn’t give a crap who he offends. He is the only man in baseball who doesn’t care if he gets an endorsement or not. He’s there to play the game. He’s there to win. He’s there because baseball is his life.
People think he’s a jerk.
And maybe he is. But if that’s how he has to come off to get people to leave him the hell alone so he can play in peace, so be it. The less people he has to worry about offending, the better.
Don’t let the fear of striking out hold you back.
Sway Coffman didn’t mean to rock the boat. She was just there to do her job.
Sure, she was a woman in a man’s world. Yes, she beat out several of those men to get the job as head athletic trainer for the professional baseball team, The Texas Lumberjacks. And yeah, she now got hate mail from those men.
But she’s good at her job, and she earned the position.
What she is not good at, however, is talking to men.
Men seem to see her curvy hips, large breasts and thick thighs and automatically think she is incompetent. Because surely a fat girl couldn’t get the job treating some of the most fit and athletic men in the world, right?
This fat girl got the job, and she is proud of it.
What else did she get?
The attention of the sexiest bearded man she’d ever had the pleasure of laying eyes on.
It was enough to bring to her down to her knees…in front of that man, the hot and grumpy baseball player, Hancock Peters.
Pitch Please gives me life!!! Baseball, steamy angst, hot chemistry, drama … it’s all here. Lani gives us something different here and it makes me so happy!
I grew up watching and playing baseball and Pitch Perfect brought me right back to my teen years. Back into the locker room, back onto the field and right back into my heart. Hancock “Parts” Peters is the one to follow. The one who is at the top of his game, albeit a very superstitious game; although I can relate. And who better to put up with his crazy ways, than the sexy, smoldering Sway Coffman, the newly appointed Athletic Trainer.
Hancock made sure to give Sway a hard time from the jump and within time, she could give it right back to him. When feelings start forming, tragedy strikes and what a way to form an even stronger bond. Hancock and Sway made my heart pump for sure. The chemistry that they share is undeniable.
Pitch Please is without a doubt, a top 2017 read. I can’t wait for Book Two!
Just when I thought MC books were life, holy hell did I get a curve ball. Pitch Please was AMAZING! Lani totally blows me away EVERY damn time I pick up her books.
Sway is the head athletic trainer for the Texas Lumberjacks. She worked her tail off to get that position and someone isn’t happy. That doesn’t intimidate her though, what does is the sexy beast of the team.
Hancock is a ruthless beast on the Texas Lumberjacks. Well, that’s what everyone thinks anyways. He comes off as a jerk and has an unfiltered mouth but the Hancock we get to see is kind of sweet. From the second Sway sits in his seat in the dugout and his rudeness makes her nervous, he’s hooked.
What I loved the most about this book was the Sway and Hancock. My goodness these two are my favorite couples ever. The way these two meshed was marvelous. I loved the banter and whatever Hancock threw at Sway, she gave right back. Lani sure has outdone herself with this story. I say it every time but I swear her books keep getting better and better each time! I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us next!!
