ARC Review: LISTEN, PITCH by Lani Lynn Vale

October 16, 2018

Rhys Rivera is the star short-stop for the Longview Lumberjacks. Many know him, even more love him. He has a pretty face, a quick smile, and an air of danger about him that everyone seems to adore.

He’s not known as the bad boy of baseball for nothing.

It all started with his father, who decided to be a criminal mob boss, then die.

Fortunately for his uncle, Rhys wants absolutely nothing to do with the family business and runs before anyone can figure out which way is up.

By the time his uncle, the successor to his father’s criminal empire, thinks to look for him, Rhys has made too big of a name for himself to be taken out quietly, and he wants to keep it that way.

Fast forward eight years, and Rhys is living life one breath at a time, just waiting for the other shoe to drop. That shoe coming in the form of a nosy neighbor who has no idea just how hot she is in her mail carrier uniform.

Her sweet little body and positive outlook on life make him want to laugh at how naïve she is when it comes to the way of the world.

The harder he tries to stay away, the weaker he seems to get, until one day he decides to put his morals on hold long enough to satisfy his cravings.

One time is all he needs—or so he tells himself.

But then two pink lines change everything, and suddenly, he doesn’t have just himself to worry about anymore.

Best book of the series... hands down!!

Rhys is the star short-stop for the Longview Lumberjacks, a really great guy, and... he happens to be heir-apparent to a criminal kingdom. He's got an inheritance he doesn't want and can't spend his money fast enough... giving it away to charity. Who wouldn't love this guy?

Hensley is an absolute sweetheart. She's a mail carrier, a fantastic sister, and she devotes most of her time volunteering at the hospital, cuddling babies and sitting beside coma patients. An accident with her speech translator has put her hot new neighbor in her sights and she's always eager for a glimpse. But when their worlds finally collide, nothing could have prepared her everything that Rhys had to give.

"What if I was born for you and you were put onto this earth especially for me?"

I thought that Listen, Pitch was a story about baseball. I couldn't be more wrong. It's about life and its frailties, about family, about overcoming all odds, and most definitely about love.
