5/5 Stars- Contemporary Romance Reviews

"I highly recommend A LEAGUE OF HER OWN for all fans of that very magical, super romantic, rivals turn lovers reads. It was perfect in each and every single way, sexy, sensual and packed with one heck of a curve-ball emotional punch! " - Deserè Steenberg, Reviewer

Fresh Fiction Review  

"Karen Rock has an enviable talent for creating very real characters with flaws and issues and insecurities just like the best of us. There's no doubt that in short order A LEAGUE OF HER OWN will rein you in and keep you turning pages. Rock... makes sure you are fully invested in this story about people who just want to find a safe place for their heart." - Sandra Wurman, Reviewer

A LEAGUE OF HER OWN Excerpt:

Garrett's grumbling teammates filed out of the pre-game meeting, followed by the coaches and Heather's father. Garrett, however, remained in his seat, watching the lithe young woman as she stood by the door.

At last she turned to him.

"We meet again. Garrett, right?"

He stood and strode to the door. When he stopped, her eyes widened, caution swimming in their depths.

"You mentioned having individual meetings," he said, keeping his voice even, hiding the irritation shimmering through him. "I thought we'd have ours now."

She blinked up at him, and her lips moved. Though he strained to hear, he couldn't make out what she'd said.

"I'm sorry, I didn't catch that."

A bright pink suffused her cheeks, and he forced himself not to notice how pretty the color made her.

"I said that I haven't finished my notes for you yet. I'll watch you pitch tomorrow. We'll meet after that."

He had to give it to her. Soft-spoken or not, she had a direct way about her. He didn't doubt that she could lead...just not professional baseball players. "That's what I wanted to talk to you about. I'm requesting to be released from my contract. This isn't the right place for me to advance in my career."

Her mobile face stilled. "And why would that be?"

"Look, I'll be blunt." He tapped his fingers on the sides of his legs. "This team isn't hustling, and it'll be a long time before they come around to supporting you. Things will get worse instead of better. I have a limited window of opportunity to advance. Given these factors, my bottom-line pitching won't look good with a losing team behind me. I'd like to help you, but selfishly, this is my last shot."

A speculative gleam entered her eyes. "So you're asking to be released because you think I can't help you reach your goals."

A long breath rushed out of him. She was going to be reasonable. "That'd be great. Thank you."

She arched an eyebrow. "You're wrong, and I'll be as frank with you as you were with me."

His relief turned to irritation. So she wasn't going to make this easy. He held his tongue and waited to hear her out.

"I think you're overvaluing yourself." She nodded when his mouth dropped open.

Guys talked this way to each other. Not women...especially not pretty women...to him.

"Your control isn't where it should be, and if that's not addressed, you'll also be another reason why this team isn't doing well. But you have potential, and I can help you."

"Right," he scoffed. What could a softball pitcher do for him? "No offense, but I need someone with more experience."

She tapped her chin and angled her head, her eyes flashing up at him. "If I can change your mind about that, will you drop your request and give me your support and a hundred percent effort?"

He held in a laugh. Was she for real? There wasn't a chance she could change his decision. "What do you have in mind?"

She stepped closer, and her subtle citrus scent curled beneath his nose.

"A contest. If I get more strikes out of twenty pitches than you do, you stay. If you have more, then I'll release you."

He stared at her. Processing. She couldn't be serious. Sure, he had control issues, but he was still better than a college-level player. She was making this easy. But if she was foolish enough to offer him this out, he'd take it.

They eyed each other for a long, tense moment before he jerked his chin at her.

"You're on."

This is my 3rd Karen Rock book and it has definitely secured her a place on the short list of authors I can’t wait to read. I will definitely bump her upcoming books to the top of my to read list.

As is the case with most romances this had a fairly predictable plot line. Thankfully woven into that predictability was a unique story-line and great characters.

Heather is very strong female lead who happens to be an awesome pitcher. It takes a while but eventually she shows the all male members of the baseball team she has something of value to contribute to the team despite the fact that she is a female.

A sweet romance develops between Heather and Garrett and I appreciate the fact that this book remains clean while portraying an obvious attraction between the characters.

If you enjoy sweet clean romance check out this line of books especially those written by Karen Rock.

(4.5 stars) I love sports so I jumped at the chance to read a romance novel centered around baseball. Heather and Garrett come from two different worlds and each of them originally assume things about the other that they are surprised to learn later aren't true. Heather appears to be rich and privileged and to have led a stress-free life, but her family has secrets that have led her not to trust people. Garrett was raised in foster care so isn't familiar with family life and things he's done in his past make it hard for Heather to completely trust him.

Heather has moved away from home and comes back to town when her father has a heart attack. She convinces her father to give her a chance to manage his minor league baseball team. She works hard to gain the respect of the team members. She and Garrett feel a physical attraction towards each other and Garrett is interested in getting to know her better but Heather holds him at arm's distance since she's his boss. Something tragic happens and someone comes back into Heather's life that reminds her why a relationship with Garrett would be a bad idea.

I loved Heather and Garrett and wanted them to find a way to make their relationship work. Their situation felt realistic to me as they each had flaws and they were working to become better individuals. They had some great scenes together. I especially enjoyed their bet but their kissing scenes were great, too! I enjoyed this book from beginning to end.

I've read a few of these Harlequin Heartwarming books and have enjoyed them all! This is the second book I've read by Karen Rock and I look forward to reading many more of hers in the future!

I received a copy of this book to review. My opinion is 100% my own.

I’ve come to known what to expect from Karen’s books and I really keep enjoying them so much because whatever she writes you can tell she puts her heart into it, and you can’t help but feel for her characters and hope that despite whatever struggles they find they can overcome them in the end.

Despite the achievements she has gained, once Heather has to return to her hometown and help her dad with his minor league baseball team, it seems that for him she still just a little girl; she’s always wanted to get her dad’s approval but no matter what she does is never enough for him, but she’s determined to make him proud of her. But having a woman managing their team isn’t taken very good by the players, what could she possibly know of baseball and being in charge of a team? so, they don’t feel very motivated to improve their game.

And then there’s Garrett. He was an alcoholic but has been sober for years now and focused on not letting alcohol destroy his life and his dreams again, make it to the major leagues and he’s not sure Heather is going to help him succeed. Heather on her part, is worried about having a former alcoholic in her team, due to something that happened in her past dealing with people with an addiction, she knows she can never fully trust them and that pretty much just a matter of time before Garrett also slips.

But despite their issues, they find that they have a lot in common too, and in each other they find someone they can talk to and who understands them and then it’ll be up to them to decide if they’re willing to take a risk and go for more.

Like I said at the beginning it’s easy to care for Karen’s characters.

A League of Her Own

A League of Her Own
By Karen Rock
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Age category: Adult
Release Date: December 1, 2014

Book Blurb:

He was attractive, talented … and way off-limits.

Heather Gadway may have been a world-class college pitcher and a top university coach, but she’s a rank amateur when it comes to managing the Falcons, her father’s struggling minor-league team. And when it comes to managing her aggravating attraction, Garrett Wolf, their talented new pitcher. It’s going to be difficult enough to make it as the first female manager in the league and prove to her overly critical father she’s worthy. No distractions. No missteps. And certainly no romances with players. Everything stands between them–including their troubled pasts–even as Heather’s world falls apart and Garrett’s the one who’s there to catch her…

My review:

I’ve really enjoyed reading the Heartwarming line because the romance plays center stage, yet it’s tender and allows the complex themes of the story to carry the tension.
