#Review #GiveAway ~ GRAND SLAM By Heidi McLaughlin @HeidiJoVT

Series: The Boys of Summer, #3
By Heidi McLaughlin

Grand Slam is the first chance I have had to read any of Heidi McLaughlin's work. It will not be the last. Wow this lady can tell a story! This book was so awesome that it was impossible to set it down.

Saylor Blackwell is great at her publicity job, she knows how to handle the talent and the press. She's also a great mom to her adorable daughter Lucy.

Travis Kidd leads the playboy life style that a lot of people expect from the handsome sports guys. However Travis has found a lady that he wants to spend more time with. The problem is the lady isn't allowed to be involved with a client. Saylor and Travis have an incredible attraction to each other though. 

There is some major drama with Travis that causes him and Saylor to spend more time together. The more time they spend together the harder it is for them not to fall for each other.  The attraction they feel is  ready to explode at any moment. When they finally give in it's oh so hot and steamy.

Lucy plays a huge part in the story line. I loved this little girl. She is adorable, smart, and isn't afraid to say what she thinks or feels. I admired Travis' interaction with Lucy. This guy may be a big strong baseball player but under all that he's just a cuddly teddy bear when it comes to Lucy. 

I so enjoyed watching not only Travis and Saylor get to know each other but also Lucy. They have problems that they are going to have work hard and dig for the truth to get through. There is a lot of drama, secrets that need outed, strong friendships, along with a fabulous romance story. I highly recommend this book if you enjoy a spots romance or even if you don't. I think even those of us that know not much about baseball will enjoy it, I know I certainly did.

I can't wait to see what Heidi McLaughlin in store for us lucky readers next. I know I will be anxiously awaiting her next release. 

I was given the opportunity to read this fabulous story and it has been my great pleasure to share my thoughts with you.

Win the game. Lose your heart.

Everyone knows who I am and that I could have any female fan I want. That's supposed to be the "perk" of playing left field for the Boston Renegades. But I don't want just any woman; I want her.

She should be just another face in the crowd, but I can't stop thinking about the one night we spent together-and her look of regret the morning after.

Because Saylor Blackwell is the kind of woman who haunts a man. Smart, sexy as hell, and one of the best managers in the business. She's every ballplayer's dream woman. And I'd do anything to make things right with her.

I'm done sitting on the bench when it comes to Saylor Blackwell. Time to swing for the fences.

Whenever I wake up with a hangover, I often ask myself why I drank so much and promise that I’ll never do it again. That promise is something I’ve been breaking for the past few days, and up until now, I didn’t care.
I had hoped the booze would muddy my memory of last night, but it hasn’t. Every word she said, every expression she had, every punch to my chest to get me out of her apartment is crystal clear. I fucked up, and I don’t even know how. All I know is that the sobs I heard on the other side of Saylor’s door last night were enough to sober my stupid ass up.
For hours, I sat against her door, until a resident suggested I leave or they were going to call the police. If I hadn’t been arrested ear- lier, I probably would have encouraged them to dial Boston’s Finest. Another man might understand my plight. The woman that I want to be with kicked me out of her house, and while I probably deserved it, I didn’t want to leave until she stopped crying. I didn’t want to be the one to walk away in her time of need.
But as egos go—and believe me, mine is huge—I couldn’t let it get in the way any longer, so I walked my drunk ass back home with my tail between my legs, only to stay up all night while the booze wore off, knowing that I had to live with whatever I’d done to Saylor.
She’s the last person in the world who I want to hurt, and she’s the one person who can save me. Not only from a life behind bars, but from myself. When I’m with her, I’m a different person. The cocky son of a bitch whom everyone is used to doesn’t exist when she’s near me, and frankly, that is the man I like, or at least I used to. It’s easier being a fucking douche. It’s second nature to me and comes with the territory of being named one of the citys most eligible bachelors.
Except when I’m with Saylor, I can be the man who hides in the shadow of that Travis Kidd. I can be the kind of man who doesn’t have to have a one-liner available or wink in order to get a phone number. When I’m with her, life outside of baseball starts to have a meaning, a fucking purpose.
