“Delightful, sexy, emotional, exciting, exhilarating. I loved every single second of it! A sports romance with a DASH of kink….it doesn’t get any better than that!”

“Unexpectedly emotional, beautifully written, and decadently naughty, CD Reiss once again owned me heart and soul. Hardball was an enthralling romance from start to finish!! And I never wanted it to end.”

Dashiell Wallace, Dash Wallace, Dash… Dash Wallace was ultra swoon worthy. So much so, his name just rolls off the tongue. And according to Vivian, there is another something I’d like to have rolling around on my tongue. (Uh-oh, did I say that out loud?)
Gah! This book was such a feel good story. Filled with a sweet, SUPER sexy man that oozed testosterone and dominance and a sweet, strong and kindhearted woman. Vivian was a librarian, but Dash brought out the wanton woman in her. He made her feel alive and I was so fricking jelly. Oh and I’ve never been a sports fan, especially a baseball fan…but CD Reiss did an A-MAZING job bringing that sport to life and actually having me interested. She made it look sound like fun!!
So not only was I falling in love with a HOT and SEXY baseball player, feeling jealousy for a fictional heroine that got to touch and love on said baseball player, but I was actually starting to become a fan of the sport. That is a MAJOR accomplishment.
But within these pages, it’s not just about baseball. For me, it was about – no matter how sexy and strong the guy is, he can be so much more vulnerable and insecure as anyone. Dash was sexy and hot but deep down, he could be just as insecure as Vivian…but strong little Viv, she put that weight on her little shoulders and carried him. I was truly in awe of her strength. She held strong to her goals, her career and her beliefs. No matter how much she felt for Dash, she didn’t let that waver or deter her.
This was such an amazing book with great characters and their humor and passion just dripped from the pages.
They call Dash Wallace the Diamond King.
He’s the hottest commodity in baseball and in the bedroom.
When he runs the bases, every woman’s eyes are glued to his stunning body and a smile that puts the night lights to shame.
I’m no queen. I’m a regular girl with a regular job. I just watch him on TV and from the bleachers, season after season.
Girls like me grab a guy like that one in a million times.
My number just came up, and he is as spectacular in bed as he is on the field.
But there’s not a woman in the world who can distract Dash Wallace from the game. Not for a moment. Not even me.
Until the night I do. And everything changes.
Hardball is a SMOKING HOT, SEXY romance with a touch of angst and a ton of heart from CD Reiss. It’s a fun, witty, full-length standalone meant for the over-eighteen crowd.
