Publisher's Summary

She can’t let him score...

Call it superstition, but when a guy bats as hot as Brooks Elliott, you don’t mess with what’s working. And what’s working is him keeping his pants zipped and doing all of his scoring on the field.

So when I hear he’s planning to ditch his V-card now that he’s been traded to baseball’s lovable losers - a.k.a. my home team and my reason for living every March through October - I do what any rational, dedicated, obsessed fan would do.

I make a plan to stop him.

But the thing about stopping him is that it requires spending time with him.

Lots. And lots. And lots of time.

And the more time I spend with him, the more I like him. Not as the guy who’s going to help save my favorite team and finally bring home a championship ring, but as the guy who’s helping me in my quest to bring back the team’s old mascot. Who also loves making pancake and bacon sandwiches. And who would do almost anything for his love of the game.

But after all this time of jock blocking him…do I even have a chance?

And if I do, are we both destined to a life of celibacy in the name of winning?

Jock Blocked is a home run of a feel-good romantic comedy featuring the world’s most superstitious sports fan, baseball’s oldest virgin hero, a rogue meatball, an adorable puppy with a cussing problem, and the best lovable losers. It stands alone and comes with a happily ever after more satisfying than a game-winning grand slam.

I found this book a little hard to follow; it was a bit all over the shop, making it hard to keep up. The narrators where amazing!

One of my ALL TIME FAVE Pippa Grant books!!

I cannot rave enough about Pippa Grant's books - they are the right mix of outright hilarity with some really heartfelt, character driven plots. And Jock Blocked is a perfect example of this!! Mackenzie and Brooks have a very mixed beginning but when you have a Fireballs Baseball Team obsessed fan do everything in her power to get her team's new recruit to stay a virgin so he can continue hitting the ball... well you are guaranteed lots of laughs, lots of love and lots of fun!! Add in the excellent supporting cast (Pippa does secondary characters so well!!) and a mascot voting contest ... and well this is one book I won't be forgetting anytime soon!!

As for the audio - Jacob Morgan & Andi Arndt were absolutely perfect for Brooks and Mackenzie and they were the cherry on top of an ice cream sundae of pure goodness!!

Yes this was fun !

Ok loved this book ! How do you break a curse?? Is there such a thing as meaning to superstitions? Well this fun fast paced story will try answer your questions . Brooks the sweet Ave hot baseball player is still a virgin ( why you ask well read or listen to the book lol ) Mackenzie is the teams biggest fan ! She was him to stay a virgin . Why ( see above reason ) add a puppy that likes to swear ( so funny ) and a couple of cross dressing dads and a group of friends and you have a great book

Fantastic narrators but very silly story.

This was too silly to enjoy. A fan girl tries to save the virginity of an adult male professional athlete all in the name of having a winning baseball team. The narrators were fantastic! However, this is not worth a credit.

I thought the story was a bit silly! I think they took superstitions way too far. As usual, Andy Arndt and Jacob Morgan were great.

Meh

Not often I read a book and can’t wait to finish it just so I can be done and never look at it again. This was unfortunately one of those books. The dialogue between the characters was all over the place at times and several times I wasn’t sure I understood what was actually happening. Maybe if I was a baseball fanatic it would have read better for me but sadly, that’s not the case. Love the narrators though!!

10 + STARS

What a laugh a minute with this book. I highly recommend this book and all of the other fabulous books by the incredibly talented PIPPA GRANT. Brooks and Mackinsey are puurrffect together and Cocca Puffs the puppy is simply a star in training. So if laughter and baseball are your thing, then just buy this book.

I snort laughed. I almost peed my pants. Read it!

“Okay, your next story has to have drag queens, an echidna, a virgin baseball player whose game depends on not popping his cherry, a dog with a collar that spews curses when the dog barks, and a crazy superstitious fan who steals a giant meatball. Got it? Go!”
This is how I imagine Pippa Grant’s stories get their hilarious story lines. I snort laughed all the way through this book. Another great story!

This one is freaking awesome! I laughed so many times listening to this book. Andi and Jacob are my two favorite narrators. They made this one come to life. I kept having to rewind a lot of the funny parts because I wanted to keep laughing.

Brilliantly read

I laughed so much. I know nothing about baseball but that was ok, I only needed to know it was a sport thing.

I cried during an epilogue though and had to stop listening while I resorted to housework to help me recover.

I love Pippa Grant!

Mackenzie is just learning how to talk to baseball players, she is hilarious, superstitious and determined. Brooks has a big secret that a lot of people seem to know, he just doesn’t know how anyone found out. I love the characters, the story and the Narration is awesome. I recommend anything by Pippa Grant. 🎧Audiobook Obsession

The weird and wonderful love match

I listened to this story straight through because I couldn't stop laughing at the ridiculous situations that Mackenzie and Brooke got themselves into. Just loved too how a lot of characters from previous books in the series are intertwined in these stories which makes you feel like you're part of the family. The excellent narration brought the characters to life and I highly recommend this audiobook.

Grinning ear to ear

I love that there were no alpha males anywhere, I loved that there where quirky heroines who weren't total air heads or idiots.
I loved Mackenzie and Brooks and especially Jacob Morgan's Cocoapuff :D
A total, sweet, funny feel-good romance.

Traditions, Curses and New Beginnings

Title: Jock Blocked
Author: Pippa Grant
Format: Audio
Narrators: Andi Arndt, Jacob Morgan
Genre: Romantic Comedy, Sports (Baseball), (Male) Virgin
Standalone: Yes
Part of a Series: Book 1 of the Copper Valley Fireballs
POV: Mackenzie and Brooks
Steam Level: Slow burn to toasty
5/5

I've been on a Pippa Grant audio binge - partially in preparation for Pippa Grant's newest release but also because Pippa Grant's writing is amazing. Andi Arndt and Jacob Morgan are a winning combination for these two characters. And while I didn't laugh nearly as hard as I did reading Jock Blocked I still laughed a lot during the audio version. I love Mackenzie and her dads and I love Brooks family some of whom I've met before in a previous series and some I hope to see more of in the future. I love the world that Pippa Grant has created and all the quirky characters within.

I received this audiobook for free from the author. This is my honest and voluntary review.

The "talking" puppy...there are no words

I read the ebook a while ago and I loved the ebook. This author is one of my favorites for some fun laugh-till-my-tummy hurts kind of fun and this book was no different. This book has it all- the laughs, the heart, the LOVE. And quite possibly, the cutest puppy with the best talking collar this side of the Atlantic. (And to listen to this brought to life by Andi Arndt and Jacob Morgan?) Perfection.

In this book, Mackenzie, the most superstitious super fan of the Cooper Valley Fireballs tries to stop Brooks Elliot from getting intimate because apparently, it's that specific stat of his that makes him a baseball legend. When he's traded to the Fireballs, she needs him to win so he can't be allowed to score off the field. But by blocking his off-the-field scoring, she realizes that she may want him as more than just a baseball star.

These two- a perfect mix of weird but lovable. I laughed so hard at some of their antics. Their awkwardness knows no bounds but each time, even as I cringed a little, my heart burst in adoration because I loved them so much. And then, throw in the family (these characters had ties to families from some of Pippa Grant's other books) and some welcome visits from our favorite hockey team (I may have fangirled through the book) and this one is definitely one of my favorites, if not THE favorite book I've ever read from Pippa Grant. And that's the ebook. Now, throw in Jacob Morgan (swoon) and Andi Arndt, who always has such versatile performances and this rom-com was elevated through the audiobook. Loved it!!
