Review: Hardball by V.K Sykes

After years of hard work and keeping her nose firmly to the grindstone, Dr. Holly Bell has finally achieved her dream: a position as a pediatric surgeon at a prestigious teaching hospital. Children’s lives rest in her skilled hands. That means total dedication to her work and her patients without letting anything or anyone get in the way. And a hot affair with a superstar athlete is most definitely getting in Holly’s way.

Nate Carter, star pitcher for the Philadelphia Patriots, has the world in the palm of his baseball glove. He’s at the height of his game, a west coast team is about to lure him with even greater riches, and the most gorgeous women in town are in full pursuit. Nate has everything he wants, or at least he thinks he does, until he meets the beautiful and brainy Dr. Holly Bell. He’s totally up for a hot affair, and Holly turns out to be the hottest.

But will Holly be willing to play his game? When the lovely doctor starts changing the rules, Nate realizes he just might be playing for keeps

Did you see the cover? Yeah It's hot! This was one of those books that I didn't know what I thought about it until it was done. It was OK, I didn't feel a connection to the characters like I was hoping to. The story was decent, you got the shy, insecure Doctor, Holly Bell who by chance meets a popular baseball player Nate Carter and that sets off a whirlwind romance. They have hot sexual chemistry they can't deny but he isn't ready to settle down and after almost a month of dating Holly wants him to agree to not bang other women while with her. While they figuring out what to do about their relationship Holly experiences some dramatic bullshit with the parent of one of her patients that causes her some stress. Throughout the story she is trying to save a little boy's life but meets Resistance with the kids' father. The guy is unstable and you find out just how Koo-Koo this bitch is. The characters were pretty cool, Holly got on my nerves when she freaks out about Nate not porking other chicks when she banged him on their first date! I mean Hello? Ladies if you bang a guy on your first date and then cry about why he left you...the answer is in the question! 

(Disclaimer: If this offends you in any way the my work here is done!)

YES. I. DID. I totally went there! There are two supporting characters in this book that make into the next book titled FASTBALL that I actually want to read next because these characters captured my attention in this book. Hardball had everything a story needs: Drama, Suspense, Romance and of course SEX! Even though I didn't connect with the characters the book was pretty good. This book is FREE so give it a read and tell me what you think. Alright I gotta go pluck my chin hairs so you mofo's have a great day!

About The Authors:

V.K. Sykes is really two people - Vanessa Kelly and Randy Sykes, a husband and wife team who write sexy contemporary romance. Randy excels at plot and characterization, but tends to fall down on the job when it comes to that pesky old thing called emotion. That's where Vanessa steps in. She usually writes the sex scenes, too, since Randy is a bit uncomfortable when it comes to that sort of stuff. Vanessa also writes Regency-set historical romance for Kensington Zebra under her own name.
