I liked the plot, and thought it was nicely written. The fact that the characters took longer than a few days to "fall in love" was refreshing. Even though the book spanned 5 months, the author was able to convey the passage of time without giving us boring daily run downs.
The only issue that I had with the story was that Jackie really was an unpleasant person. I wouldn't want to spend any time with her at all, least of all volunteering to work for her. I would write a check for the nonprofit and move on. So, I found it hard to understand why Alex was so willing to put himself out there for her. I think Jackie's general character could have been written to be likable, but relationship challenged and that would have provided enough conflict between the two leads.
I would read another book from the author.
The hero is a pro baseball player and heir to a California vineyard. He is a really good guy. He too had his heart broken by a woman he thought he loved and she loved his money and fame. So, he usually just enjoys women without getting serious, until he meets the lady doctor.
I learned a lot about baseball through Alex's eyes and thoughts. I had no idea. It was a really good part of the story and not a lecture on the rules of baseball. I had no idea jobs like hers existed either. So, besides reading a good story, I learned some things. I really enjoyed this story and I definitely recommend it. Great hero, smart heroine and HEA. Who could ask for more? Good read
I was not paid for this review. I am not an author nor do I know one. I am not kin to this author. I am a reader and this is my opinion, nothing more, nothing less.
Dr. Jackie Brandon meets Alex and from the first meeting they are drawn to each other. Alex volunteers at the Marine Mammal Center but with the demands of baseball and his need to concentrate on his goal of the Triple Crown it doesn't work out. Jackie continues her investigation of the sample from dead animals, water and soil samples to solve the mystery why all the animals in the north part of San Francisco Bay are dying. Jackie and Alex are an unlikely pair that eventually get together. Love Bats Last offers romance, environmental issues, sports and a mystery for a out of the park home run of a story.
I liked the characters and their interactions. The dialogue was smooth and the description to detail was good. This is a multi pov book (the best kind in my opinion. All in all this was a good read and I have bought and ready to read number 2.
There were no "heart twinge" moments for me but the story was believable and not rushed. The characters took their time leading up to their romance which was a nice change. If you want hot, raunchy sex, you won't find it here...but if you want a sweet romance with a little mystery, suspense, and a hunky hero...this book is for you. (and the sex isn't bad either)
Would I recommend this book? Yes
Would I read more from this author? Yes - already have book 2 waiting in the wings.
