Review

"This introduction to Mindy Klasky's Diamond Brides series is a heartfelt, conflict-ridden story as irresistible as its characters. It's also a whole lot of sexy, savvy fun...  Super-strong conflict, a naughty, tongue-in-cheek tone and the occasional sweet surprise all put Perfect Pitch firmly in the you gotta read this category. Klasky's writing is top-notch, her pacing swift and sure." - USAToday

Samantha is a pageant queen who wants to make a difference in the lives of children, by bringing music to their schools. A public relationship is frowned upon, and if she doesn't live up to certain expectations, she could lose her crown and the means to make her dream a reality. Sparks FLY when she meets D.J., a pitcher for a major league ball club. His relationship with his father and his expectations for his son add layers of complexity and angst and affect his relationship with Sam. Their attraction is immediate and their phone calls during D.J.'s road trip allow their relationship to grow in a unique way.

This is a wonderful read by a very talented author. Mindy mixes emotions and descriptions and creates a wonderful world for the reader. I'm looking forward to the next book in this series!

I have read most of Mindy Klasky's books. This is by far my favorite.

Samantha, a minor beauty queen, receives a number of texts in the middle of the night. Pitcher DJ Thomas has slammed her title. To make amends, there is a forced meeting complete with roses and a public apology. When the two meet, sparks fly and they become enamored of each other. There is even a young son who likes the music that Samantha offers in his school. Samantha's obligations prohibit her from having a relationship, but the two find a way.

I liked the conflict in the story and the sex was actually sexy and interesting rather than perfunctory. The story was fun and a quick read. Be prepared to stay up to finish it!

While well written (no typos or grammar issues), but I didn't get drawn into these characters and I really like stories within the sports subgenre.

This is a relatively short story (read in one setting in just a couple of hours), I felt that some aspects needed better closure (the relationship with his father, as one example).

There's an HEA, but you never get to read "I love you" between the characters. They never say it to each other, even though the author has made it clear they're in love. A letdown.

This short romance quickly draws you into the world of Samantha Winger - from her undesired first encounter with baseball pitcher D.J. Thomas all the way through the complicated, intense and sexy adventure that ensues. Vividly written, romantic and erotic, this is the perfect read to shake off the winter blues and embrace the passion of spring. Highly recommended!

A special thank to the author, for sharing her story for free, and for creating an interesting premise. Personally, the conflict didn't sustain my interest, but I'm sure other readers would enjoy the story.

*Spoilers Alert*

Samantha is a military brat who'd been shuffled from one place to another due to her father's career. The only thing constant in her life had been her love for music. Now as the Summer Queen, she has the chance to bring music into children's life with her charity. When a pitcher insults her on national television, she has no one to turn to because all of her friends had deserted her. I had hoped that she'd gain new friends along the story, but it didn't happen. I also wondered about the absence of her family--while her parents were mentioned, they didn't appear even after their daughter's name was splashed and shredded in the media. And how in the first place had she gotten into the pageant circuit when most of the time she seemed so unhappy about it?

DJ is a baseball pitcher spurred to succeed by an abusive father. As the sad case with abusive children mostly is, he reflects the abuse on his own son. True, the abuse is not physical, as he mostly crushes the child's dreams of learning music, but it's an abuse nonetheless. This point wasn't made clear in the story, and I believe it deserved to be called by its name. When Samantha tries to defend DJ's son's wish to study music, they run into an argument. But, she meekly draws back and time after time when he insults her, she takes him back. That could have turned into another abusive relationship if it wasn't for a teammate who gave DJ a halfhearted advice at the end of the story. And I am left wondering, what kind of army brat would be so meek?

I like 'em spicy, but I also like 'em when they're sweet and well written and the spice is light, but well done.

This is a good short romance. Klasky's a good writer and a good storyteller. She even has me caring about baseball in this one. (I know, right?) But I relate to athletes and she nails the athlete's concerns.

Mindy Klasky has done it again – but this time she’s put her literary skills to the task of a baseball romance that begins with a home run. The plot pits love against some socially constructed organizational rules. The entities take turn at bat and the story heads into the final inning with the rules heavy on the scoreboard. I won’t tell you if love or rules win – you have to read it for yourself. But, I will tell you that I can’t wait for the remaining books in this series to arrive on my Kindle!

Get into your comfy clothes, poor a glass of wine, grab your favorite blanket and curl up with Perfect Pitch. I guarantee you won’t regret it!
