Review: HardBall by C.D. Reiss

*****4.5 Stars*****
You get the script? Hot, proffessional sports guy, seems to have it all, meets girl who thinks she's far to plain-jane to ever attract the attention of said Sports Star. Now whilst this book does follow this pattern, don't be mistaken for thinking it's like so many others.
This was my first book by this author and it certainly won't be my last. The book had a totally unique feel to it and was written in both Vivian's and Dash's point of view. Admittedly it took some getting used to the authors writing style, but quite quickly I became completely engrossed in the book, especially Dash's parts. Being inside his head was something else. I really really loved his filthy mouth, but what I absolutely loved about him was the side only Vivian got to see.
Vivian's character was instantly likeable and while she had a vulnerability about her, she also had a strength about her. Quite simply, I loved her personality. She had the right balance of femininity and tom-boyish behaviour.
If I had one criticism and the one thing keeping me from awarding the full 5 stars, it would be that I personally felt a certain thing, pertaining to Dash was not quite resolved and assuming this book is a complete stand alone, I would have loved to have more of an insight into that, but really it is a minor issue. The ending was perfect and I know without a shadow of a doubt, I will be remembering this book for quite some time.

Perfect ass.

Perfect arms.

Perfect swagger.

They call Dash Wallace the Diamond King.

He’s the hottest commodity in baseball and in the bedroom.

When he runs the bases, every woman’s eyes are glued to his stunning body and a smile that puts the night lights to shame.

I’m no queen. I’m a regular girl with a regular job. I just watch him on TV and from the bleachers, season after season.

Girls like me grab a guy like that one in a million times.

My number just came up, and he is as spectacular in bed as he is on the field.

But there’s not a woman in the world who can distract Dash Wallace from the game. Not for a moment. Not even me.

Until the night I do. And everything changes.
