Review

"The dynamic between Noah and Teddy was perfect, and the refreshingly mutual respect between the pair made 'Payoff Pitch' a pleasure to read, as well as making it a stand out novel in the romance genre." ~Words Are Life
"The husband and wife who are V.K. Sykes certainly know how to make their romances with a sports theme come across as completely realistic since specifics are very precise. PAYOFF PITCH delights with likable characters and loads of realism." ~4 stars, Single Title Reviews

Review for Ramblings From This Chick. ramblingsfromthischick.blogspot.com

Payoff Pitch is the fifth book in the Philadelphia Patriots series written by the husband and wife writing duo going by the name V.K. Sykes (Vanessa Kelly and Randy Sykes). This book immediately drew me in because I am a huge sports romance fan, and I also was really intrigued by the idea of a husband and wife writing together. While I did like Noah and Teddy and I liked several portions of this story, I did have a few issues overall though. The first half of this book was promising and I was really enjoying the way things were going, but then it started to go downhill for me and I found myself wanting to skip ahead or skim large portions of this book.

Noah Cade is a pitcher for the Philadelphia Patriots and is still recovering from a career threatening injury. After having surgery, he has been working to get back in the game. When his aunt's health condition gets worse, he finds himself not only balancing his career but also two standard poodles that she has entrusted him to take care of. When Noah sees the pretty dog walker from the next door neighbors chasing their dog, he immediately seeks her out to help her and also get her professional services for the dogs. Teddy agrees to come and work for him and also live with him and the dogs to ease their transition while he is away so much. The attraction between Noah and Teddy is strong, but they agree to put their feelings aside in order to maintain their professional relationship. Soon things being to escalate though, and both find the chemistry to be inevitable and give in to their feelings. With the uncertainty of Noah's career, and his family pushing for him to take a place in their company things soon get complicated.

Whether PAYOFF PITCH is the latest book in the Philadelphia Patriots series you have read or the fifth, there is much to enjoy while never feeling lost because of in-depth details. An individual connected to a professional baseball team finds himself facing numerous changes that could drastically alter his life from the dream he has long held. When he becomes involved with a woman whose beliefs are much different from his own, the turmoil he is going through multiplies. The husband and wife who are V.K. Sykes certainly know how to make their romances with a sports theme come across as completely realistic since specifics are very precise. PAYOFF PITCH delights with likable characters and loads of realism.

The baseball season is just about to start for the Philadelphia Patriots, and Noah Cade is eager to see how well he can pitch after suffering an injury. Proving he is still a capable player has motivated him for months, as he does not want to give up his beloved career. When he receives a call from his aunt requesting him to come visit, Noah knows there is just enough time to travel to Texas before the first game. After hearing she wants him to take in her two poodles since she can no longer care for the lively pair, he agrees because there is nothing he would not do for his cherished relative.

A chance meeting between Noah and Teddy Quinn back in Philadelphia has him making her an offer that will be hard to refuse. She is from a nearby farming community but needed money for further schooling, so she and a friend walk dogs plus give special attention to the pets if needed. Noah wants her to take care of his newly acquired dogs on a daily basis, and she agrees since the contract would definitely help to fund her college studies.

This book was long and boring! I read until about 60% before I started skipping ahead. I just wanted to find out if the 2 main characters got together or not; by the end I just didn't care anymore! I was so sick of Teddy and her antifracking SMH!!! Save your money people...

I just loved this book. Teddy and Noah are really HOT together. They both have issues. She doesn't know his father is CEO of Baron Oil and when she finds out, she can't believe it. Up where she grew up there is drilling and fracking going on. It's ruining wells and though the people did sign the leases, they are now really sorry. Teddy's father is holding out but his son would like to have the drilling on the land. He likes the money he is making because of the trucks and all the rigs that need tires. But Teddy is torn. Noah meanwhile is having troubles of his own. He's trying to come back from Tommy John surgery and he doesn't feel as if he's good enough. His velocity is in the toilet and his payoff pitch won't pay off. But in the end they do finally get together and are compromising on the stuff that could have torn them apart. V.K. Sykes does it again. LOVED IT.

I am a fan of this well written and obviously well researched series. V.K. Sykes has given readers a lovely realistic world to visit again and again. Payoff Pitch is number 5 in the series, but could stand alone. I strongly recommend that you invest your time in the entire series. You will find yourself reading about the kind of people you would like in your own life. The characters are engaging and definitely interesting. I found it easy to become emotionally involved in the outcome of the story, and I look forward to more.
