Strike Blog Tour Banner

Synopsis

Strike is the second book in the Completion Series. There is no connection to Play (book I) except the sports theme. Strike is a standalone HEA novel.


Nineteen-year-old Jaycee Shumway breaks into professional baseball player, Reed Tyler’s home, to steal the second most valuable set of balls he owns. Neither of them expect their striking attraction or battle of wills to lead them to a homerun.


Jaycee has more than herself to worry about. When Reed discovers she has a younger brother and sister, he’s quickly caught up in their world of need and heartbreak.


Baseball season begins and the separation puts Reed and Jaycee’s game on hold. With bases loaded and hearts on the line, will Reed convince Jaycee that she needs him to win or will Jaycee strike out and walk off the field forever?


This New Adult book is intended for mature audiences.

Review


Reading by the Book ARC Review

I have so much to say but will sum this book up like this.....

I didn't kniw whether to laugh or cry but I do know I was deeply touched. This book is a Lifetime Movie with a HEA... Yes Reed was rich and a baseball star but he had his demons. Longing for what he never had and finding someone who risked everything to provide for what he desired. #Family.... I really do not feel if you do not value yours and make them that priority, this book is not for you.

I LOVE Holly for the strong storyline and the momenys of real life events and insecurities. It was also a plus that the hero was "real" and had a heart waiting to share with someone who would appreciate it.

This is definitely a 5♡ book and re-read worthy.
Excerpt


His husky laughter rang out, drowning me in the sexy sound. Why couldn’t he snort like a pig or something just as ridiculous when he laughed?


“You’re very concerned about my balls,” he said when his laughter died away.


My smartass mouth took front and center. “If you remember… I’ve seen your balls and it would be unsporting of me not to be concerned.”


Oh, God, his eyes sparkled and I would do anything to take back my words and the thoughts they conjured.


Reed wouldn’t let it pass. “I’ve seen a fair amount of you and that also causes me concern. So much concern that I didn’t sleep well last night.”


Mortification anyone?


“A gentleman wouldn’t bring that up.”


This time, his laugh was plain evil. “A gentleman wouldn’t have cut away your shirt and bra. A gentleman wouldn’t have admired your tits. A gentleman wouldn’t do this…”


I had no time to prepare for what happened next. His warm lips took mine at the same time his hands closed around my upper arms, trapping me. My entire body reacted to the kiss. I grew light-headed, my breasts ached, and my heart almost exploded out of my chest. But it was the taste of his mouth that had me squeezing my thighs together. I never knew anyone could taste this good. There was no description on earth that did it justice. I wanted to eat him whole.
