Pitch Please ~ Lani Lynn Vale Release Blitz

Title: Pitch Please
Series: There's No Crying in Baseball Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: Sports Romance
Release Date: September 8, 2017
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.

I'll just start out this review by saying HOME RUN!!! 
Sway Coffman is a woman who sees herself as less than perfect, holding a job in what is usually a mans world of baseball as head athletic trainer of a MLB team where egos and attitudes fight for top billing.

Hancock “Parts” Peters is the sexy, consumed by superstitions, current superstar of MLB who also happens to think his teams new athletic trainer is the hottest woman he's ever seen.

Sway has considered herself Parts biggest fan since he first entered his baseball career and now that she has the opportunity to get her hands all over him... in a strictly professional manner of course!... she's beyond feeling like she just hit a grand slam! But like life, and the general rule of romance books, there has to be that person(s) who wants to rain on the game.....

Okay, I'll be honest for a minute. After reading so many of Lani's books that involved the Kilgore FD, SWAT, and MC's, I was wondering if starting a whole new line of characters would work for me. But let me just say she executed it perfectly. This book was funny. It had drama, but not over the top or cheezy. The chemistry between the two was great. And the other characters we met in between the pages were really likable also. I'm really anticipating her next release of this series!!! I give it 5 stars.

I was giving this book as an ARC for an honest review.
