Celebrate baseball and romance with these 5 must-read books #baseballromance #romance #bookish



Opening Day for Major League Baseball was yesterday and I'm all excited for the baseball season. I love baseball and have been an avid fan since I was a little girl. As I got older, I naturally gravitated to baseball romances. Now, they're must-reads, especially in the spring and summer months. I was scanning through trying to find some new ones to try on Amazon and here are the ones I'm going to read this weekend:


Stealing Home: A Second Chance Baseball Romance (Dallas Longhorns Book 1) by Tara Wyatt


Maggie Jennings didn’t think she’d ever see Dylan McCormick again. When she was eighteen, he took everything she had to give—her heart, her love, and her virginity—and then broke her heart when he left for college. But now he’s back in her life, playing for the Dallas Longhorns, where Maggie works as the team’s media director. Watching him on the field is the most exquisite torture—he’s a muscled, talented athlete who looks amazing in a pair of baseball pants. Seeing him again makes her want all kinds of things she shouldn’t.


Dylan McCormick has it all. A pro baseball career, millions of dollars, and a life most only dream of. But everyone has regrets, including Dylan—and his is Maggie. One look at her, and he knows that he’ll do anything to get her back. He wants her. He needs her. He’s determined to atone for the past while showing her the man he’s become because he knows there’s no one else for him. But the past has a way of refusing to stay buried, and when secrets surface, their sizzling chemistry may not be enough to keep them together…


The Perfect Steal: A Rosemont High Baseball Romance by Britney M. Mills


He’s got charm for miles. She’s got him in the rearview mirror.

At Rosemont High, Nate Everton is the top of the food chain when it comes to girls. At least he thought so until a school assignment pairs him with Brynn Miller—the one girl who seems immune to his charisma.

Brynn Miller is determined to ditch her small town and her parent’s drama. All she needs is good grades, a diploma, and a basketball scholarship to fulfill her dream of life anywhere but there. But that roadmap to success hits a bumpy stretch when she’s stuck with Rosemont’s resident hotty, Nate Everton.

Will they keep their focus on their separate ways, or will they realize working together gets them everything they want—including love?

Grab this fun love story and see how Jake, Penny, Ben, Serena, Dax, and Kate help them fall in love!


The Ninth Inning: A New Adult Sports Romance (The Boys of Baseball Book 1) by J. Sterling


New York Times Bestselling Author, J. Sterling is back with a fresh new baseball romance series you won't want to miss! No one writes baseball like Sterling!


"This is sports romance at its best! I was hooked from the first page! Cole & Christina's romance is my new favorite." - Claire Contreras, NYT Bestselling Author


Cole Anders is in his last season at Fullton State. If he doesn't get drafted this year, he'll be forced to hang up his cleats for good. It's not something he's ready to do.


To prove he's serious about his final season, he's given up girls. No more casual hookups, dates or one-night stands. But there's one girl who has always refused to give up on him. One girl who has been there since the start of Freshman year. One girl he stupidly assumed would always be waiting for him when he got off the field, no matter how long it took.


Christina Traver's has had enough of Cole pushing her aside for baseball. She's grown tired of waiting for him to see what she's known since they were freshmen... that they belong together. She's finally moved on.


Cole has other ideas, but she refuses to cave. It's not her problem if he wants her now. Too little too late.


There comes a point in your life when you have to stop the incessant merry-go-round and just get off the ride, right? Try telling that to Cole.


Pitch Please (There's No Crying in Baseball Book 1) by Lani Lynn Vale


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?


Wrong.


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.


Rocking Player: Single Mom Second Chance Romance (Steel Series Book 1) by Victoria Pinder


Baseball games are supposed to be fun, right? I got tickets to bring my son.


Popcorn, soda and an easy day in the sun, but then I saw him.


But Surprise! There’s Michael. His last name is Irons. He plays major leagues and he’s the father of my son.


Every instinct told me to take our boy and run. I hadn’t known his name or how to get in touch with him the past six years.


Now not only does he see me in the stand, it takes him a glance at my boy and he knows the truth.


It was like fate brought us to this point, but he climbed into the fan benches to talk and flirt.


I told myself it was just about our son, but alone, our conversations are getting heated.


I didn’t expect our magical memory would be burned in his brain.


Or he’d want me again.


All I wanted was a quiet life to raise my son.


Ball players are dangerous. But what happens when the season ends? Let me tell you the truth… I never expected what actually happened.


Do you like baseball romances?
