ARC Review: QUIT YOUR PITCHIN' by Lani Lynn Vale

July 08, 2018

What’s wrong with my butt?

She means those words to be directed toward the woman beside her, not him. But he can’t stop himself from answering. Not when her ass is the most magnificent thing he’s seen in his life.

Apparently, answering her with ‘not a damn thing’ wasn’t what she was expecting.

She likely wasn’t expecting the baseball she took to the face at his next at bat, either.

All it takes is one ill-fated foul ball, and George Hoffman, Lumberjacks center fielder, falls head over heels in love with Wrigley Field—and yes, that is her real name.

From that point forward, George and Wrigley fall into a fast whirlwind love that ends with them eloping to Vegas. And he has his potty mouth, titty bar owning, pain in the ass grandmother to thank for it.

Not that he’s complaining or anything.

Who wouldn’t want to be married to a woman that made his heart race like he was in the final game of the World Series?

The only problem is trying to convince her of that.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

George is a famous baseball player, a red-headed gorgeous mountain of a man. The tabloids love him, the fans love him, and pretty soon Wrigley is in love with him. A trip to Vegas, a lot of drinking, George’s sneaky, outspoken grandmother, and a whole lot of love have these two getting married Vegas-style. And everything’s fantastic. Wrigley gets pregnant, they welcome their beautiful baby into their lives, and all too soon, their lives are shot to hell. Family loyalty and a refusal to make things better have these two on the outs and divorced.

I’m no expert on all things LLV, but this was the most angst-ridden story of hers I’ve read yet! Here were two people who were very much in love and happily married, yet they got divorced due to unforeseen circumstances, stubbornness, and an unwillingness to admit wrongs. My heart broke for both characters because they were not only suffering needlessly, but they were still so in love despite their separation. They made so many mistakes in their quest to make things work, making each other hurt in the process. It didn’t help that the media was so involved in their lives, making their efforts that much harder, sometimes sending their progress out the window. But I loved that they didn’t give up. I loved that even though they weren’t together, they still had each other’s backs and were still very much involved in each other’s lives.

George and Wrigley were real and raw and broken and silly and over-the-top and hard NOT to fall in love with. This story was drama-filled and full of heart. With its amazing cast of supporting characters, I can’t wait to discover what’s next for this series.
