Over the Fence

Over the Fence is a collection of Lyssa Layne’s baseball romances including The Right Pitch, Fear of Striking Out, Another at Bat, and a BONUS STORY, A Diamond is Forever.

The Right Pitch
Colie Adger is trying to make it in the big leagues as an athletic trainer. Working in a man’s world isn’t easy. Colie must figure out how to make the best decisions for all the men in her life—both on and off the field. As good as she is at making decisions for others, can Colie figure out her own heart and hit a homerun off the right pitch?

Fear of Striking Out
Shortstop Tate James is less than excited about his trade to the trendy City of Angels. That is until he crosses paths with beautiful Mia Tomko. She lets him know that not all L.A. women are just after fame and fortune. When someone from both of their pasts arrives, will it tear them apart or make them closer?

Another at Bat
Pitcher Jace Richards had it all. Fame, status, money, and the perfect girl but it wasn’t enough. Laurel Darbis is the mom to ten-year-old Grey who is about to start baseball. All of the parents are thrilled when the new coach arrives, everyone except Laurel.

A Diamond is Forever
Pitcher Benny Martinez and his longtime girlfriend Isabel Soltero are afraid that history will repeat itself. With Benny on the road, Isabel is doing her best to be both the mother and the father to their teenage son. Throughout Benny’s travels, he watches his fellow ball players, Grant Adamson, Tate James, and Jace Richards interact with their family and he soon realizes what he’s missing. It’s time Benny makes a decision which comes first—his family or his career?

Goodreads

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

Ok so I begged for this book after falling in love with Mia’s brother, his best friend and the woman they both end up loving!!!

Mia and Tate are side characters, so I KNEW a little bit of their history from that but actually seeing them fall in love was awesome.

Mia is attracted to the hottie on the field, but she is a bit skittish after her ex-husband left her with a few scars from his abuse.  But Mia isn’t the only one dealing with past issues scars.   It was a great read seeing the two try to figure everything out to not let their past win to ruin their future happiness.

If you love Lyssa like I do, then you will be claiming and licking Asher like I have…well actually I think I claim and lick all of her characters. #GreedyReader

Lyssa Layne is first, and foremost, the proud momma to her precious daughter, AR. In addition to working full-time and being a mommy to AR, she is also an avid St. Louis Cardinals fan, a runner, blogger, and an infertility survivor.

#REVIEW – Coach Long by K Webster

Coach Everett Long has a chip on his shoulder.
Working every day with the man who stole his
fiancée leaves him pissed and on edge.
His temper is volatile and his attitude sucks.

River Banks is a funky-styled runner
with a bizarre past.
Starting over at a new school was supposed to
be easy…but she should have known better.
She likes to antagonize and tends to go after
what she’s not supposed to have.

When the arrogant bully meets the strong-willed
brat, it sparks an illicit attraction.
Together, they heat up the track with
longing and desire.
Everything about their chemistry is wrong.
So why does it feel so right?

She’s a hurdle in his way and, dear God does
he want to jump her.
Will she be worth the risk or
will he fall flat on his face?

Twinsie Jo’s Review

Well this was a delicious little treat. I had found this new release on my newsfeed and was intrigued. I love little taboo stories and this one was perfect. This story is part of K’s taboo series but can be read as a standalone. It was my first book by her and I didn’t feel lost at all but I’ll definitely be going back and reading more of her books.

So we meet River and Coach. And wow do the sparks fly instantly. River is filled with fire and sass and keeps Coach on his toes the whole book. They’re back and forth banter is funny and hot. So so hot.

Coach had his heart ripped out by his ex so he’s now dark and brooding and yummy. River is everything that he needs.

The only thing I would have loved to have seen was Coach punch out River’s father. Lol!

This story is short, hot and filled with all the sexy little kink I enjoy in my stories. It’s insta-love so if you’re looking for a filler between books or something to read while curling up with a glass of wine, this book is perfect.
