Rockin Reviews Grand Slam JT Cheyanne SPOLIER ALERT!
Yeah like Baseball. I’m a BIG fan, and unfortunately my team, the Chicago White Sox suck ass but I would be an even bigger fan if they had a player like Spencer Hightower. Wow, what a hunk…
Ahem, back to the book. The great thing about Spencer other than his sexy smile, his smoldering looks, and his high batting average is he’s openly gay. He’s comfortable with it doesn’t hide it even in the tense world of major league baseball. Now as we know, there hasn’t been a player to come out while playing as of yet but I see that day coming just like when NBA player Jason Collins came out a couple of months ago.
Then there’s the other man in the story, Brock Kincade. He’s a CPA, wanting a relationship and eventually kids. When the two of them meet, sparks fly and neither man can keep their eyes off one another. He’s also open but apprehensive about getting into a relationship with Spencer because of his own insecurities and Spencer’s career. And with good reason since the man is highly touted in baseball, with scouts attending the triple A Paw Sox games all the time to catch his act.
Let me say I LOVED This book. Everything about it. The style of writing, the characters who had valid concerns about jumping into a relationship, the way the author portrayed Brock as someone who actually hated baseball and Spencer who loved it but obviously fell in love with Brock, changing his priorities. It’s realistic, it’s not too fluffy and the sex scenes though kind of quick were very sensual. JT’s descriptions of the characters made me wanna date em. Hell, are they interested in menages? *laughs* From the book I can tell they are not.
Then there are the supporting characters, especially Brock’s niece. Wow, almost made me want to have one of my very own. Well, almost. *grins* She was adorable and I really enjoyed how they wove these delightful children into the story.
Although the book was almost 170 pages, I wanted more about Spencer and Brock just to see him in the big leagues. How he handles all the attention while playing on the big club. The questions, ESPN, etc. Something tells me that won’t happen. Nevertheless, I really enjoyed this book and looking forward to reading more from this author.
I give it 5 horns! \m/ \m/ \m/ \m/ \m/
All of his life, Spencer Hightower dreamed of playing baseball in the Major Leagues. He survived growing up gay in rural Alabama due to his impressive skill on the baseball diamond. Now living in Rhode Island and playing for the AAA Pawtucket Red Sox, he’s only a few steps away from his goal.
Brock Kinkaid, CPA, faced each day with a smile that hid his deepest desire. He wanted to be a father. Unfortunately, the gay men he knew were not into the daddy scene. Resigned to being childless, he lavished his attention on his niece and nephew. When Corey won tickets to see the local baseball team in action, they suckered him into taking them despite the fact he loathed the game. Who would have guessed one homerun ball would change everything?
