I respect the H, Hancock, tremendously. He's funny, he's confident without being too cocky, and he's very loyal. Hancock is loyal to his team, family, country and his woman. The h, Sway, is similarly lovable and admirable. This is a well matched couple, a grand slam, home run, sexy double header; their story reads well and I anticipate rereading this one, or even getting the audio version.
Some of the side plots may have muddled some aspects of the story. For example, there was something of a 7th inning stretch that involved a clandestine military mission. Didn't fit with the baseball theme, but did fit in with the author and her fan bases love of military men and is a theme that plays a large role in her other series. There is an underlying mystery involving the theft of team items, this was, for me, resolved a little abruptly without enlightening the reader to the true motivation and did not provide full closure to this little mystery. We learn who did it, but not why- we must draw our own conclusions(i'm whining pitifully about my unresolved mystery aren't i? There is no crying in baseball, I better stop.)
The side plots I most enjoyed were Sway's struggles in a male dominated profession and how she and the H and his team mates dealt with the issue. The players superstitions were humorously and thoughtfully explored, much to my enjoyment. Another great layer to this story is that Sway's brother plays for a rival team and we get to experience this baseball and sibling rivalry on the field and off.
Overall, one of my favorite new books from this author and likely the start of a great new series. I would like to revisit a few of these characters, such as, Furious George, to name just one. I'm typically not a fan of second chance love stories, however I genuinely feel that George and his ex-wife deserve one, the author convinced me with the poignancy in their
hospital scene. Yes she did.
I almost forgot to mention this book is very sexy, with lots of Texas Heat!
I loved Parts and Sway! Grumpy and gruff professional baseball catcher Hancock “Parts” Peters is known as a bit of a hothead, but he actually turned out to be one of the swooniest heroes Vale has ever written. Shy but sweet athletic trainer Sway Coffman was funny and curvy and caught his eye from the moment he laid them on her. Right from the start, this story drew me in and held all of my attention—I positively devoured it and didn’t want to put it down. Vale’s sense of humor is always present in all of her novels, and it was front and center in Pitch Please. The back-and-forth banter between Parts and Sway was on point and, along with the combustible chemistry between them, made this a story I could not read fast enough.
I fell in love with these characters, and Vale has concocted yet another fictional world—with a host of interesting side characters whose stories I am dying to for—that I cannot wait to visit again. Vale has penned romcom magic in her first go at a sports romance, and she’s definitely started something special in the There’s No Crying in Baseball series. Pitch Please by Lani Lynn Vale gets five smooches from me!

Minor editing issues
I have never read a book by this author before but I am a huge baseball fan so I always love when baseball and romance are combined. Based on the cover alone I bought this book with the hopes it would live up to my expectations. While I enjoyed the book it certainly wasn't my favorite. At times it seemed a bit all over the place and as a larger woman I got tired of Hancock constantly stating that he loved how big she was. "I love every pound, every stretch mark, every dimple..." If my husband said that to me I might lose my mind.
Hancock is this hardened baseball player who can't be bossed around. He doesn't pull punches and what you see is what you get.
Sway is an athletic trainer who just recently started working for Hancock's team. Having been a huge fan of his her entire life she is a bit starstruck.
Sparks fly when they meet and the book is filled with super hot intimate scenes but the rest of the book was a bit underwhelming. There seemed to be plot lines that didn't make much sense to me. I am guessing they were to introduce other characters for future books.
This just likely isn't an author I will read more books from.
