nice romance with a likeable twist

was kinda hoping we'd hear alternate thoughts from Brady and Riley as when part 2 came and it was all Riley I was left wondering Brady's thought pattern and what changed his mind...,a mind that we heard the 1st half of the book so determined not to go where he fell Into in the 2nd half. but love hearing all my fav characters surrounding this story....good writing great narrator's....as usual....and nice HEA

10 STARS!!!

I LOVE this series!!! Man did Brady’s story break my freaking heart!! But it also put it back together! I loved Brady and Rylee’s story so much! I really love how this series not only gives you layers of characters and their stories but also teaches the game!! A lot of sports romances are not really about the game itself and this series gives us a lot of everything and its awesome. I love Samantha Christy’s writing style and this one was just as epic as every other story she writes. And to top it off she always picks THE BEST narrators in the industry and I love her for that! they did an amazing job!

Great story except

I didn't like splitting up the narration into part 1 and part 2. It didn't allow us to hear about Brady's healing from his own perspective, only through the eyes of Riley.

Perfect EVERTHING! Loved the story & Erin Mallon and Zach Webber narrate! *drool*

I loved this audiobook! The romance was was beautiful and the chemistry was sizzling. The storyline of love and loss was squeezed my heart and never let it go. Riley was everything I wanted in a heroine: Strong, smart, sassy, and could go toe-to-toe with Brady. And what can I say about Brady? I loved him! He broke my heart at times, but put it back together and always kept me wanting more. The chemistry and passion between he and Riley was unreal and had me turning up my AC in late November! Their banter had me thoroughly entertained and a constant smile on my face. I even found myself tearing up a little at the end. Now that I look back I can’t believe this audiobook is nine hours long! It flew by and I still wanted more! I’m an official Samantha Christy fan and I’m running to listen to the other books in this series right away. Narration was done by the audio-rockstars Erin Mallon and Zachary Webber so it was basically perfection. These two are automatic one-click narrators for me. If they narrate it, I’m buying it. Their narration here is absolutely effortless and you can’t help but get lost in the story and emotions. 5+ Stars.

Swoon worthy second chance romance

Don't you know, Rylee - You're everything to me. My Holy Grail. My jackpot. My perfect game. Samantha Christy always deliver. Erin Mallon and Zachary Webber really bring Brady and Rylee's story to life. Brady started as a wounded and bitter man who have never faced the losses of his past when he met Rylee who was the team PT tasked to helped with his recovery. Rylee is strong and has secrets of her own to bear. They started out as friends and as the relationship developed and secrets are slowly reveal, you can feel the breakup and the possible heartache is hidden. You will ache for them and love every minute of it. Can't wait for Sawyer's story to complete the trilogy.

A Perfect Audiobook

I can't say enough about this book. The last few chapters had me on the edge of my seat in tears! Can I just say how much I love Erin and her female & Male voices?

All the feels

Ohhh I knew Brady's story would be sweet and a little sad. His back story will pull all your heartstrings and make you really want to give him a hug. After injuring his elbow in a game, Brady meets Riley, the girl he didn't know he was looking for. She doesn't know she needs him in her life either. They begin a casual relationship with a rule to not reveal any intimate details about each other. This of course doesn't work in the long run and thus begins the twists and turns of the storyline as they make their way to each other. Brady would be an easy character to not like on the surface, but you realize quickly that he is deep down a sweetheart with so much in his past stacked against him. This story will leave you with all the feels and a smile on your face with the sweet ending. I listened to this title and Zach Webber and Erin Mallon give another amazing performance in this series. There is more emotion to this one than Catching Caden and both performers delivered this story with passion and draw the listener into what the characters are feeling.

Love Zachary Webber, still not a fan of Erin Mallon

I don’t usually write reviews but here it goes. I am an absolute fan of Zachary Webber, I throughly enjoyed the story BUT....Erin Mallon’s narration makes me cringe! I’ve stayed away from books she has narrated because it’s like nails on a chalkboard for me. With this audible I decided to try it and give her another chance since it’s been awhile....nope. I really would like to hear the rest of the series but I can’t because she’s narrating. It’s infuriating.

So Good!!!

This is so much more than just a sports romance. I was not expecting the emotional roller coaster that the story and the characters took me on. That being said I absolutely loved it and had tears in my eyes when we got to the epilogue.

love the storyline, the end of the book was unexpected, but I love that the author went there. Give me Zachary Webber's voice any day. He is one of my favourite narrators.

A great audiobook with fantastic narration! I loved the first book and loved this one as well! Sports romance is one of my favorites! This one has all the feels and emotion and the narrators bring it out in their performance as always. They are top notch and if you haven’t heard them you are missing out. Great audiobook!

Wow

Love love love this book- I laughed, cried, cried ... cried more, swooned - great story, relatable characters - another amazing read from this author. Brady’s past, wow, sooo sad, Rylee, could she be the one to change the play boy of baseball - I’m trying to hard not to give spoilers here, but this is such an amazing book, clearly well researched by the author, I felt all Brady’s emotions after his injury, emotions dealing with his past and facing his future, stunning book
