I almost had a heatstroke but at least it was a good game

 

 

Update to our sidebar conversation under Tannat's book update yesterday: I don't know what this translates to in Celsius, but no matter what your relative comfort level with temperatures, it was freakin hot last night and I thought I was going to die. I must have sucked down a gallon of ice tea and it's not even July yet. Notice in the pic (taken before first pitch, tbf) that nobody is stupid enough to be sitting in the sun. But we won the game, so it was worth it!

 

NOTE: game photo stolen from the Max Faulkner, who is an amazing photographer, because I have no idea how to embed something from Twitter in a BL blog post.

“Nerd alert!” I tease, pointing a finger at myself, “I just bought a new book, and I’ve been waiting for it to release for nine months – nine! That’s a damn eternity in romance novel years. You’re lucky I dragged myself off the couch.”

Bravo
Jock Row - Sara Ney

Sterling AKA "Rowdy" is the captain of his school's baseball team.  When they need him, he is right there to take care of things.  The current need?  Getting rid of this adorable cock blocker.  

 

Scarlett has only tried to help her friends.  How is it her fault that the guys are terrible conversationalists?  The sexy hunk of a man who kicks her out makes up for it, though.  Now if she could just convince him to let her back in the house....

 

Such an amazingly great book.  This series is very sexy and fun.  I loved the banter element most of all.  I could picture it like it was happening right in front of me!  I could not put this book down and eagerly devoured each and every page.  What lucky readers we are.  I cannot wait to read the next installment.  I give this story a 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

good book and characters
Catching Luke (The Outlaws of Baseball B... Catching Luke (The Outlaws of Baseball Book 2) - Debra Elise

Luke had been a major league baseball pitcher but an injury had interrupted his career  but he wasn’t taking it easy  with his wild ways on his motorcycle and being a player. He now owned a bar but had a very good person managing his bar. Lara knew to stay away from guys like Luke. Lara is a physical therapist and doesn’t go out with her clients. Lara knows Luke is hot and has a deep attraction to him. Luke wants Lara but he can’t get Lara to do as he wants  her to like he seems to be able to do with other women. Lara gives into sexual relationship with Luke but she knows it's not forever or serious. Besides Lara is still hurting some from her previous relationship. I really enjoyed this book. Sometimes I chuckled while reading this and sometimes I choked,up. I loved the description of Idaho. This is an easy to read very pleasurable read. This has a good plot and fast pace. There is a lot of action. I love the interaction between Lara and Luke. I love the characters and the ins and outs of this book and I recommend.

Canadian classic storybook with lovely art
Baseball Bats for Christmas - Michael Kusugak

Disclaimer: review based off of NetGalley proof

 

I have a feeling I must have read this as a kid; seems to be a rerelease of a book from the '90s. Definitely has that nostalgic feel either way. There's a strong storytelling tone to it, and it's more storybook length than picture book. I'd recommend for early readers, elementary schoolers, or as a read-aloud to toddlers. Lovely, painterly art supports the story of a remote Canadian-Inuit community sometime last century. Fits in with other historical fiction efforts that convey a sense of a simpler time, making your own fun, community and family. The snowy landscape and Christmas references could make it a good holiday gift for children, and I could see it being a teaching tool as well for discussions of Canada's past, the experience of remote communities and First Nations.
