Review ~ Pitch Perfect by Sierra Dean


She’d be the perfect catch if he could take his eye off the ball.

Emmy Kasper knows exactly how lucky she is. In a sport with few opportunities for women at the pro level, she’s just landed her dream job as head athletic trainer for the San Francisco Felons baseball team. Screwing up is not an option.

She’s lost in thought as she pedals to the spring training facility, her mind abuzz with excitement as she rounds a corner—and plows head-on into two runners. The end of her career dances before her eyes when she realizes she’s almost run over the star pitcher.

As Tucker Lloyd watches the flustered Emmy escape with his bandana tied around her skinned knee, the view is a pleasant change from worrying about his flagging fastball. At thirty-six, the tail end of his career is glimmering on the horizon. If he can’t pull something extraordinary out of his ball cap, the new crop of rookies could make this season his last.

The last thing either of them needs is a distraction.

The last thing either of them expects is love.

Warning: Contains a down-on-his-luck pitcher, a good-girl athletic therapist, chemistry that’s out of the park and sexy times that’ll make them round all the bases.

About the author:

Sierra Dean is a reformed historian. She was born and raised in the Canadian prairies and is allowed annual exit visas in order to continue her quest of steadily conquering the world one city at a time. Making the best of the cold Canadian winters, Sierra indulges in her less global interests: drinking too much tea and writing urban fantasy.

Ever since she was a young girl she has loved the idea of the supernatural coexisting with the mundane. As an adult, however, the idea evolved from the notion of fairies in flower beds, to imagining that the rugged-looking guy at the garage might secretly be a werewolf. She has used her overactive imagination to create her own version of the world, where vampire, werewolves, fairies, gods and monsters all walk among us, and she’ll continue to travel as much as possible until she finds it for real.

She’s also a book lover (of course!), obsessive collector of OPI nailpolish and the owner of way too many pairs of shoes.

Do you like baseball?

My Thoughts:

I like the cover. I like the book. I don't like baseball. I used to but as with many of the other hobbies that I got away from, I don't watch it any more. Now it puts me to sleep for some reason. lol!

This is a sports romance and it was pretty good. The only complaint that I have was that it was very, very immersed in the sport of baseball. If you don't like baseball, you will probably find yourself distracted or disinterested at times.
Sierra Dean created characters that were very likable and easy to cheer on. :-) Even if the baseball lingo turns you off a little,  the characters make it worth reading it.

If you like baseball or sports romance, than you need to put this book on your TBR list. 

I thought it was pretty good. I'd have liked it more if there hadn't been so much baseball in the! I received an ecopy of this book from the author in exchange for my honest opinion.

  1. I do love discovery sport romance but i admit i love when the author manage to make the sport in question understandable... i mean for some less known sports if you go in too many details the readers is lost, if the charachter is evolving in a sport yes you should show it but the balance is important...

    i don't know if i love baseball to answer your questions^^ it's not popular in my country, i'm not sure i understand all teh specificity but i did read sport romance with that sport and i appreciate them so i could give this a try especially since i still have some title to add to my list for the challenge i've entered

    thank you a lot for sharing

    1. I enjoy that to when they can explain it. I never was really into hockey and I read a book with it and now I understand it better.

  2. Like you I used to watch it. As I've gotten older I dont enjoy sports as much. I watch it occasionally with my dad or brothers. There really into it. But I may have to give this one a try. And it does have a great cover.

    1. i love the cover too, and since i couldn't do a lot of sports because of my health i never was really attracted to watch it except for example the olympic... i could be curious to watch baseball after having read a lot of books with characters playing it but it's never on TV ( though now there are more rugby than before.... euh in case yu didn't now rugby is your " football", i think there is oen diffeerence in rules but that teh same, football for me is oen sport really important in my country ( but for you it would be soccer i think)
      ^^ see even while reading sport romance i need to be careful to be sure what sport it is^^

    2. LOL Ive done that with football or what would be soccer here and football elsewhere.

    3. ^^ quite disturbing isn't it?

    4. yes. Why couldnt they name them the same stuff! LOL

    5. i always wondered that for example rugby is called in french "football americain" so american football... i always found that strange but at least i understanded the difference ( one played with feet this one with hands) now that i'm reading this term never appears and i' need to be careful^^ but what its strange is that in pasnih, dutch, itilian even chineese football is football ( so soccer gfor you) ^^ you are the one having changing the name so i guess you are the one who can make research to find why^^ if you are tempted

    6. haha im not THAT curious! LOL Why do we Americans have to make things difficult! LOL I always thought that "soccer" should be football. Its played with the feet. I dont get why they would switch it up. I'm sure it was a guy that did it! :)

    7. certainly ^^ ( and sure you love to make things complicated with a different measure systeme, a different measure for weather, driving on the left etc etc^^ but it does make you special complicated yes but special)

    8. LOL well I know Im special! ;) LOL But I agree. I don't get why everything is different.

    9. you could win this one here:

    10. i saw it^^ sadly it's only kindle or nook version

    11. don't be ^^ it's not your fault, by the way you wouldn't want to join a sport romance challenge? ( you just have to read 6 books min before end of teh year and as long as one character is an athlete or something that counts)( short review are sufficient and they can be posted on good reads) you could win book(s))

    12. I could do that. :) I have enough of them.

    13. ^^ you have info on my blog or i can send them by email^^ it would be fun to see which one we have in common or to discover those we don't^^

    14. whichever you like. I'll look around later. I have all this catching up to do since we had no internet. :(
