Curveball is about finding love and acceptance for who you are in spite of the curveballs life throws you.
I truly connected with this book and had a hard time putting it down. I highly recommend it!
Curveball by Mariah Dietz drew me in immediately, and I read it in one sitting. I simply couldn’t put it down. Dietz’s writing is hypnotic and her characters are full of emotion. The complicated relationships of the characters made Curveball an engrossing story. I instantly adored Ella because she’s a single mom who loves those around her with all of her heart. Coen stole my heart quickly because he’s a genuine and caring guy who saves people’s lives for a living. The situation that Ella finds herself in when her son is born requires a strength born of a deep love for her son in order to survive, and Ella’s emotional strength held me spellbound until the end. The romance is tender with just enough heat to make this a sizzling read. Curveball by Mariah Dietz is a captivating love story that I highly recommend reading.
I received an advanced reader copy and voluntarily chose to review....then had to buy it!
With her small town treating her like a piece of gum stuck at the bottom of their shoe, it's a wonder that she is such a great single mother to her son Hayden and such a kick arse employee at her marketing firm. Ella exhibits such strength in the face of the pure hatred towards her, only wanting to be back so her son could know his father. The man who seduced a young Ella and promised her the world only to be the two-timing married firefighter that the whole world adored. I wanted to give her a high-five throughout this book in addition to many hugs as I watched her get berated and for the most part ignored by the world around her. Yet she has such grace and the uncanny ability to put everyone and everything above her own needs.
Thank goodness Coen came into her life. The man with plenty of his own secrets, I loved how he took his time getting to know Ella. Getting to know and love her son Hayden. Pushing Ella to stand up for herself and shielding her from the town that only wanted her gone. Both ignoring their own 'dating rules' to give the other a chance. Their path to happiness is filled with potholes. Filled with self-doubt. Filled with denial. But there is that unmistakable heat that passes between them that can't and won't be put aside. The author brings just the right amount of passion, mildly alluding to sexual trysts and that was ok. I didn't need it being so entrenched in the emotional aspect of their romance. There are more than enough gut-wrenching scenes that practically broke my heart with Ella and Coen having their burgeoning love get tested time and again. But it is the love that finds it's way through, as delicate as it is glorious and I found myself hoping it could be enough.
I was completely satisfied by this book and loved that it wasn't the usual. It has a whole lot of heart and a very surprising twist I did not see coming. The secondary characters, whether I liked them or not, were the perfect compliment and didn't take away from the main story at hand. Hayden is a joyful little boy and his severe peanut allergy was a very real and important part of this book. A very relevant affliction that affects so many these days and was handled respectfully.
Coen is as swoonworthy as they come and his love for Ella is simply divine. Theirs was not an easy love but definitely one very worthwhile. I'm glad I took the chance.
A solid 5 stars!
