Release Blitz & Review: Pitch Please by Lani Lynn Vale

Title: Pitch Please
Series: There’s No Crying in Baseball
Author: Lani Lynn Vale
Genre: Sports Romance
Release Date: September 8, 2017
Baseball is life, the rest is just details.

Everyone who’s played the game has heard those words a time or two. But Hancock has heard them his entire life from his parents. His family has lived and breathed baseball even before he started little league.

Hancock “Parts” Peters has a name that inspires grins across many faces, but the moment those faces get their first look at him, those grins slide away.

Hancock is gruff, filterless, and doesn’t give a crap who he offends. He is the only man in baseball who doesn’t care if he gets an endorsement or not. He’s there to play the game. He’s there to win. He’s there because baseball is his life.

People think he’s a jerk.

And maybe he is. But if that’s how he has to come off to get people to leave him the hell alone so he can play in peace, so be it. The less people he has to worry about offending, the better.


Don’t let the fear of striking out hold you back. 

Sway Coffman didn’t mean to rock the boat. She was just there to do her job.

Sure, she was a woman in a man’s world. Yes, she beat out several of those men to get the job as head athletic trainer for the professional baseball team, The Texas Lumberjacks. And yeah, she now got hate mail from those men.

But she’s good at her job, and she earned the position.

What she is not good at, however, is talking to men.

Men seem to see her curvy hips, large breasts and thick thighs and automatically think she is incompetent. Because surely a fat girl couldn’t get the job treating some of the most fit and athletic men in the world, right?


This fat girl got the job, and she is proud of it.

What else did she get?

The attention of the sexiest bearded man she’d ever had the pleasure of laying eyes on.

It was enough to bring to her down to her knees…in front of that man, the hot and grumpy baseball player, Hancock Peters.

Oh how i’ve missed Lani’s books! Full of witty banter, awesome characters and sexy time. Pitch please  had everything i loved in a good book, its been one of the very few books recently that has been able to grab my attention and hold it. Sway & Hancock had some amazing chemistry between them, their relationship progressed at a rate i felt comfortable with, they really slipped into their roles well and i LOVED the fact there was no angst at all. Hancock was def a character you could easily fall in love with, grumpy, hot and has a beard???? need i say more, the fact he was into Sway despite her thinking she was on the larger side and how he embraced her curves had me swooning hard!!!!he is the kind of guy we could all be lucky enough to fall in love with, i loved Sway she was strong but soft at the same time, her personality was again one you could fall in love with, sometimes i find that i struggle to connect with the female characters in books but when it came to Sway i had no issues with her, she was caring, funny and a perfect match for the “grumpy” Hancock! I absolutely loved this book, the first installment in Lani Lynn Vales There’s No Crying in Baseball was a hit. 

I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 5, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.
