Fastball by A.M. Hargrove and Terri E. Laine
Release Date: September 22, 2016 Cover Design: Michele Catalano Creative Photography: Sara Eirew
USA TODAY BESTSELLING authors, Terri E. Laine and A.M. Hargrove bring a new full-length standalone, Contemporary Romance novel.
Our relationship starts off like a bad joke.
A gorgeous guy walks into a bar and says to me, “Do you want to F#ck?” and damn if I don’t say yes.
And that should have been it—the punch line.
We never should’ve seen each other again.
Only we do.
Turns out sex on a stick, Ryder Wilde, is more than an orgasm-giver. He’s a player. Not just any either. A Major League Baseball pitcher. And damn, I want to be his catcher.
Except he doesn’t want to play any games or follow my rules:
No falling in love.
Because he’s used to winning … and wants to claim me as his prize.
His mission is to own me, body and soul, no matter how much I push him away.
Powerless to stop him, I can only hope my heart isn’t another casualty of his fastball.

4.5 "FAST BALL" STARS!!!
"We had sex. It was good. I'm not interested in more. Isn't that guy's wet dream to fuck and not worry about commitment?
Hot.Damn.This.Book!!! It is actually my first read of this collaboration and reading a line from the blurb, "A gorgeous guy walks into a bar and says to me, “Do you want to F#ck?” and damn if I don’t say yes." ...I caved in and I couldn't let it pass. My interest was piqued and I know right there and then, FAST BALL...COUNT ME IN!!!
A.M Hargrove and Terri E. Laine's next installment is Gina and Ryder's story. I might not have read the first installment but I feel like I know them all. That's just to say that I felt a connection not just with the leads but with the previous character's as well. I enjoyed every moment I have with the book. Once I started reading, I was hooked because I just love how it was written. The story telling is vivid and the tone just gave a heightened emotion and leave more substance to my reading experience.
The journey I have with Gina and Ryder is one of the best ride I have. I admit at times I really wanted to smack some sense to this woman as much as I love her character. The push and pull she had with Ryder is annoying but once you get to know the real story you will really understand why she felt that way. But man I love her guts and her dirty and filthy ways. I love that she knows what she wants and she owned it in her own ways. I love her dirty mouth and I love her really that way.
"You don't want nice. You want hard, fast, and meaningless. And I'm going to give it to you. ~Gina
See, and she loved it dirty. Goodbye vanilla!!! ;) And to tell you she's just as much as filthy as Ryder.
"From the glorious tumbled of locks, to her breasts that fit my mouth to perfection, down to the curves that make my mouth water, I'm reduced to a single mass of need I haven't felt since...Well, I've never felt before. ~Ryder
Ryder.. Oh man... he's a living wet dream!!! I love his character portrayal just as much as I love Gina's. He's filthy and dirty but oh boy he's sweet and swoony too. More than his playboy ways and Gina's fear of commitment, these two together is just as explosive as an earth shattering, toe curling and mind numbing orgasm!!!
I truly enjoyed reading the book. It is scorching and panty melting with just first few pages so just think how it will be for the next chapters??? It is mouth watering sexy and dirty and is just my cup of tea. It is written well and pacing is slightly not consistent for several pages but is just negligible because of the content. It is a quick fast read but full of emotions. Indeed an excellent work of a collaboration.
A must read!

One day, on her way home from work as a sales manager, USA Today bestselling author, A. M. Hargrove, realized her life was on fast forward and if she didn't do something soon, it would be too late to write that work of fiction she had been dreaming of her whole life. So she made a quick decision to quit her job and reinvented herself as a Naughty and Nice Romance Author.
She fancies herself all of the following: Reader, Writer, Dark Chocolate Lover, Ice Cream Worshipper, Coffee Drinker (swears that coffee, chocolate, and ice cream should be added as part of the USDA food groups), Lover of Grey Goose (and an extra dirty martini), #WalterThePuppy Lover, and if you’re ever around her for more than five minutes, you’ll find out she’s a non-stop talker.

Terri E. Laine, USA Today bestselling author, left a lucrative career as a CPA to pursue her love for writing. Outside of her roles as a wife and mother of three, she’s always been a dreamer and as such became an avid reader at a young age.
In her early years, she and her best friend would tell each other stories over the phone when they were bored. They called them their "soap operas" and generally revolved around whatever boy they liked at the time.
Many years later, she got a crazy idea to write a novel and set out to try to publish it. With over a dozen titles published under various pen names, the rest is history. Her journey has been a blessing, and a dream realized. She looks forward to many more memories to come.
