book contains M/M romance**
All of his life, Spencer Hightower dreamed of playing baseball in the Major Leagues. He survived growing up gay in rural Alabama due to his impressive skill on the baseball diamond. Now living in Rhode Island and playing for the AAA Pawtucket Red Sox, he’s only a few steps away from his goal.
Brock Kinkaid, CPA, faced each day with a smile that hid his deepest desire. He wanted to be a father. Unfortunately, the gay men he knew were not into the daddy scene. Resigned to being childless, he lavished his attention on his niece and nephew. When Corey won tickets to see the local baseball team in action, they suckered him into taking them despite the fact he loathed the game. Who would have guessed one homerun ball would change everything?
When the chance to read this book came up, trust me I took it. Although I am not a sports fan, I do know
that there are some teams that are so anti-gay that if they even hint at a player being gay they won’t let them play the games. So a book that is about an openly gay baseball player hoping to hit it big? Oh yeah I was there!!
While starting this book, I had an automatic soft spot for Brock. He seemed like the typical all American boy,
who wanted a family and someone to come home to each night. The fact that he was gay didn’t even cause him to think he can’t have his dreams. His family was completely fine with his preference, yet he also didn’t advertise it.
Spencer almost had the cocky boy attitude at first. Although he was playing in the minor leagues, he had the dream of hitting it big in the major leagues. Being an amazing baseball player seemed to go to his head that all he
needed was just the occasional fling. After meeting Brock though, that all changed.
My one big issue with this book was that Brock had a horrible experience with his ex, but besides it being in flashbacks in his head, he never mentioned it to Spencer. They didn’t talk about his fears, or what he had been through. This factor is what brought my rating of this book down.
I think this book had enough of the important factors for a great read; the romance, the drama, the suspense, and the comedy.
I would recommend this book to my friends who read this type of story.
This book is currently $3.99 US Dollars.

A little tease from the story!!!
Anna Kate stood beside them an arm wrapped around each leg. She beamed up at them.
“When you gets married, can I be the flower girl? I want a really pretty dress that goes all the way to the floor and has lots of ruffles. It don’t has to be pink, ‘cause I know boys don’t like pink.” Her head swiveled back and forth. “Can I, please?”
Brock crouched beside the girl and Spencer mimicked his pose.
“Anna, baby. Spencer is my boyfriend, that doesn’t mean we’re getting married. We have to get to know each other a little better.”
“But, I wants him to be my Unca Spencer. I like him and he makes you smile when he kisses you. He doesn’t make you upset like that bad Nolan did.” Small hands cupped her uncle’s cheeks. “I really, really want that dress, Unca Brock, and Mommy will have to buy it if you gets married.” Her voice lowered to a whisper. “You know, I can’t wait for her to gets married because hell is made of fire and she said it would be frozen before she gots married again.”
The burst of laughter exploded before Spencer thought to stop it. Brock’s lips twitched as he struggled to maintain a straight face. “Well then, sweetheart, if I get married, I promise you’ll get to pick the dress you want.”
Happy, the youngster patted her uncle’s cheek.
Blond curls swiveled and a flushed cherub cheek pressed against Spencer’s cheek. “Will you buy me a candy bar?”
Both men stood, took a hand and joined the line. Fifteen dollars later, they stepped away from the counter.
“Thanks Unca Spencer. Don’t tell mommy you boughts it. She said it would ruin my dinner.” With a giggle, she darted off behind the bleachers to play, chocolate firmly in hand. Stunned, Spencer stared after her.
“Did I just get played by a four-year-old?”
Brock laughed and moved in the direction of the bleachers. “Yeah, you did.”
After a lifetime of reading and at the suggestion of friends, J.T. finally put fingers to keys and started writing her own stories. It’s been a wildly amazing ride full of tears, exhilaration and plain old hard work. Thankfully, her three beautiful children support her craziness and encourage her to continue something she loves. While they both have solo work, J.T. also writes with V.L. Moon and she thrives on the work they do together. What a small world it is indeed Mr. Disney when a small town girl from Alabama can find and write with a big city girl from England. What a ride it has been and continues to be!
