REVIEW - Hard to Catch (The Beast of Baseball #3) by Alice Ward

The Book
Release Date: 9 February 2017
Goodreads Link

This is the third sexy STANDALONE novel in Bestselling Author Alice Ward's brand new sports romance series, The Beasts of Baseball.

Todd Morris
I couldn’t imagine anything worse than being traded from the Mets — until the day I’m traded to the Beasts. Now I’m catching for Calvin Malone, their star pitcher. Star pretty boy. Star pain in my ass. The tension between us is thick. All over a girl. Whitney. The woman I deserve. Not him.

If that’s not bad enough, I learn that my reputation as an adrenaline junkie, a daredevil, a risk taker has landed me a babysitter during spring training. I have to admit... Katrina Delaney is hot. Not only is she damn fine to look at, she’s the daughter of a baseball legend. And mysterious. She’s hiding something beneath that social media perfection. But what? I want to find out.

Katrina Delaney
Good ole’ dad, Bobby "Spaceman" Delaney. He did it this time. Our family fortune is being sold to the highest bidder while I try to figure out how to survive on my own. Sure, I’m twenty-three, old enough to handle my own life. But I’ve never had to. Daddy has always handled everything — until now.

Thank God for Rhett Hamilton, my savior. An amazing job opportunity as the social media manager for the Beasts is my new lease on life, my beginning, my chance to prove I can do it on my own. I’ve spent my entire life around baseball players, so it’s a perfect fit. The only thing that’s changed is how I look at these men. As a girl, I’d neglected to appreciate their rugged good looks, hard bodies, and wickedly sexy demeanor. As a woman, I’m appreciating plenty, especially the new catcher Todd Morris. But his deep blue eyes seem to see right through me. To the real me. To my secrets.

NOTE: The Beasts of Baseball series follows the sexy exploits of the players on the baseball team The Beasts, and the women they love. Each book can be read as a standalone and features a heart twisting HEA with No Cliffhanger.

My Opinion  4 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

This is the first book that i have read by this author and can definitely be read as a stand alone book.

It took me a few chapters to get into the authors style of writing, but after that i was absorbed into the story and really enjoyed it.

Both characters seemed well rounded and i felt their emotions, and you never felt like Katrina looked down on being suddenly in a poor situation.

Both characters had a maturity to them, although at times they did at foolishly, but both restored their character with how they overcame their obstacles and when Todd fought for what he wanted.

This book also made me want to read the first two books in this series.
