More Than A Game #4
Kristina Mathews
Releasing on January 19, 2016.
Lyrical Shine

For Rachel Parker, covering the San Francisco Goliaths is the perfect opportunity to launch her career as a serious reporter. But she didn’t bargain on Bryce Baxter, the team’s star shortstop, tempting her more non-professional aspirations. After tearing up the base paths with him, she finds herself with a little problem, and Bryce might be the only man who can save the game.

Bryce Baxter should be living the dream. His team just won the World Series and he just signed the multi-year contract of his career. But his field of dreams has been overtaken by a fiery redheaded reporter, who’s bearing a news flash that will change both of their lives forever…

This series has been a hit or miss with me but I really did enjoy reading about Rachel and Bryce. 

Rachel is a reporter while Bryce is a baseball player. They have hooked up in the past but it's never been anything serious. But now Rachel is pregnant and Bryce is going to do everything in his power to make this work. 

I liked how these two started out as just hooking up and it gradually starts to turn into something serious. Although with Bryce trying to do the right thing I think his untimely proposal wasn't necessary but it helped make him see that Rachel is the only woman he wants. 

Because the time frame between reading the books I had a hard time remembering the previous characters and how they ended up with there HEAs. 

In most sports books some authors skip over the field time but I thought Mathews did an excellent job in making the players real. I liked how Rachel was a reporter and how she had the charm to talk to the players about each and every game. 

I am looking forward to reading more of this series and meeting more of the players on the team.

Kristina Mathews doesn't remember a time when she didn't have a book in her hand. Or in her head. But it wasn't until she turned forty that she confessed the reason the laundry never made it out of the dryer was because she was busy writing.

While she resigned from teaching with the arrival of her second son, she's remained an educator in some form. As a volunteer, parent club member or para educator, she finds the most satisfaction working with emergent and developing readers, helping foster confidence and a lifelong love of books.

Kristina lives in Northern California with her husband of more than twenty years, two sons and a black lab. A veteran road tripper, amateur renovator and sports fanatic. She hopes to one day travel all 3,073 miles of Highway 50 from Sacramento, CA to Ocean City, MD, replace her carpet with hardwood floors and serve as a “Ball Dudette” for the San Francisco Giants.
