Ethan Davenport is already Boston’s most eligible bachelor, in his second season with the Boston Renegades and has eyes for the girl behind the visitors’ dugout who has been staring at him for a year.
That girl is Daisy Robinson, a journalism student at the University of Boston, a die-hard Renegades fan and determined to give Ethan a run for his money. He knows in order to have a chance with her, he needs to change his ways but he may just need her to wait until the off-season.
But with new found love comes challenges and Ethan and Daisy have to deal with his crazy schedule, school finals and his presence on her campus for some much needed media training. For Ethan nothing can come between him and Daisy, until a secret that she’s been keeping threatens to destroy them both.

My Review
The best thing about Third Base for me is that while I was reading these words I felt as if I was in the stadium; I felt the excitement, I could smell the hotdogs, I could feel the anticipation of waiting for the bat to smack that ball! The care and thought that Heidi has put into the setting of every scene was impressive to say the least. Even for me, that girl that is more football than baseball, the time I spent in this book made me miss the diamond.

Ethan Davenport. The most sought after athlete on the Boston Renegades has his life in the palm of his hands doing what every newer athlete does, having fun, flubbing on his social media skills and loving the attention. Well not always loving. But sure as the grounds will be cut, Ethan is most himself when at bat. Even though there is that one girl who is ever present in the stands, he hasn’t quite found the courage he usually has at bat to find out her name for some time. But when he does what he thinks about this elusive fan is more than he bargained for. Ethan Davenport had my head spinning back and forth, one minute he seems to be the cocky ball player, but then behind closed doors, he’s a gentleman with a strong romantic side that will never think twice on helping the ones he holds close to his heart and the way he wants to hold Daisy, that critically inspiring fan, will sure make every reader stand up cheering for his homerun.
Like I said in the beginning, I was quite impressed with this baseball romance. The writing that is exclusive to Heidi will always ensure that you will have a good if not great time reading.  I was curious how I was going to be taken through the relationship between Ethan and Daisy. I often wondered what was going to happen to the secondary characters when I was left hanging with their stories while also feeling quite happy that indeed we will have more coming to us about the Boston Renegades. So if you are that reader who just happens to be a lover of the diamond, this will be the perfect book to read! And if you happen to not be a baseball fan but appreciates a good sports romance, go ahead grab this base hit to be ready for what’s coming next.

~*~Trudy Stiles Epic Sins Release Blitz~*~

Title: Epic Sins
Series: Epic Fail #1 
Author: Trudy Stiles
Genre: New Adult Romance
 Release Date: November 4, 2015

Garrett Armstrong, the lead guitarist of Epic Fail, womanizer and not-so-nice guy, leaves a trail of women in his wake. A recent one-night stand wreaks havoc and turns his present completely upside down. He’s faced with a reality that he never expected. Never wanted.

Samantha Weston can’t escape the black cloud that follows her. She suffered an unspeakable loss as a teenager and has been climbing uphill ever since. As soon as her life starts to become manageable, she’s slammed with another tragic event, forcing her to abandon the only thing in life that she cherishes.

A heartbreaking situation throws this unlikely pair together. They’re forced to face things that seem impossible. Can Sam get past the demons that haunt her? Can Garrett accept a fate he swore to avoid at all costs?

Can they conquer the sins that are poised to destroy them, or will they become an Epic Fail?

Epic Sins is the first book of the Epic Fail series, a spinoff of The Forever Family series.

Reading The Forever Family series is not required as these are all spin-off/standalone novels, but it may enhance your experience.


This book…. oh my goodness!
I have read every book Trudy Stiles has written since Dear Emily and the other books in the Forever Family series, actually that’s where we first meet Garrett. I was so happy when I found out that he was getting his own book, never mind that it is the start of a whole new series!! I needed to know more about this illusive guitarist and trust me when I say I definitely got what I wanted, and  I honestly think this is my favorite book of Trudy’s to date.
The beginning of Epic Sins can be a little confusing as it has a lot of bouncing between present day and the past but it is in these flashbacks that you learn what has led up to the point in life that the characters are at.  There were times I wanted to reach through my Kindle and smack Garrett early on in the book, he was so irritating LOL. I loved Samantha right off the bat, she is sweet and caring but has had a difficult go of things in her own right. I will tell you right now that this book will make you melt and at times break your heart. I enjoyed the way Sam and Garrett were written, they are complex and the layers that are peeled away the further you go in the book will have you laughing at times and others teary eyed. I love the way Trudy writes her stories, they suck you in and make you feel every emotion that the characters feel, the beautiful way she makes them so real through their heartbreaking moments.
I’m giving Epic Sins 4.5 stars and  highly recommend you grabbing a copy of this wonderful book!!

Title: Beautiful Rugged
Author: Sara V. Zook
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release: November 29, 2015
 Sometimes us silly girls fantasize about things that never come to be. I had expectations after college—expectations to run off with Jake Larson and start our life together in a little Pennsylvania farm town. I had my happiness mapped out inside my head. I didn’t expect to run into a strange, alluring man with a beard and dark hair stacked up on top of his head. I didn’t expect to be attracted to someone so—different. He was everything I didn’t know existed. He could make me feel things I’d never felt before. It didn’t seem possible that we could be together. We both had obligations. The world told us no, but we couldn’t stay away from one another, couldn’t deny that we were drawn together. He was so beautiful—so beautiful rugged. I was going to make him mine.
