Cait’s ARC Review of “Heartbreak Hitter” by Kimberly Readnour

By: Cait Marie

Second shots and fake dates, what can go wrong?

I screwed up.

Considering the team is laden with controversy, adding to the rumor mill wasn’t my intention, especially since this is my second shot at the majors.

As the Boston Bears’ first basemen, my job consists of more than winning games. I’m tasked with winning over the scorned fans.

I thought my batting average would speak for itself.

I was wrong.

When my off-the-field actions collide with my on-the-field goals, I have no choice but to devise the persona of being a committed man.

The task is impossible until I meet my neighbor, Hailey LaCroix. Goal-driven and refined, she’s the perfect woman to help pull off this ruse.

I need a fake relationship. She needs an exclusive interview.

The very ones I refuse to do.

I didn’t earn the Heartbreak Hitter title by being a saint. There are reasons I keep my past a secret and stay single.

But there’s more to Hailey LaCroix than her good looks and smoking hot curves. She’s pure and real. She makes me believe I have more to offer than swinging a bat.

And the longer we stay together, the more I want to confess all of my secrets.

The very ones that will destroy me.

Heartbreak Hitter features Rick Bosley from the Cessna U Wildcat series and Hailey LaCroix from Park Avenue Player.


*I received a free advanced copy of this book for my honest opinion.

When I tell you I couldn’t put this book down… I mean I literally stayed up until 5 am reading it, and the only reason I stopped before finishing it that night was because my eyes were burning too bad to see.

I’m a sucker for baseball romance, and Readnour never fails to draw me in. Heartbreak Hitter has everything: cocky baseball player, fake dating, sassy leading lady. Did I mention they’re neighbors?

Both have troubled pasts, and it turns out they have a lot more in common than they expect. This naturally leads to a great deal of bonding and opening up. That’s one of my favorite parts of this book. Yes, there was chemistry and heat, but it was more than that. They genuinely became friends who supported each other.

There’s also a bit of mystery to this particular story, which I really enjoyed. I’m not a mystery reader, but this kept me wanting to know more, needing to figure a couple things out, such as who broke into Hailey’s apartment that led to her meeting Rick.

I truly loved this book, and as always, I can’t wait for more from Readnour!
