Review - Reaching First by Mindy Klasky

Reaching First: A Hot Baseball Romance
by Mindy Klasky
Series: Diamond Brides, #3
Genre: Contemporary Romance/Sports Romance
Release Date: April 30, 2014

Hotheaded Tyler Brock has one huge strike against him when he arrives in Raleigh as the Rockets' star first baseman: he owes one hundred hours of community service for starting a bar fight. Lost in a new town with a new team, Tyler can't confide his greatest shame to anyone—he can't read. 

When he's assigned to work for Emily Holt, he's in even bigger trouble. Emily is beautiful, uptight, and ready to shed her secret, unwanted virginity. They hit it off, in more ways than one. But when illiterate Tyler shirks his book-bound community service, Emily must hold him accountable. 

Can this mismatched pair save each other by sharing their long-held secrets?

Tyler Brock was different, with his devil-may-care attitude and his laughing contempt for the rules. He was a bad boy, and he made her want to be a bad girl, in the best of all possible ways.
All Emily Holt wants to do is satisfy the terms of her grandmother’s will – she has one year to come up with a way to help veteran’s and their families, or she will forfeit her grandmother’s house and bank accounts to a rescue program for cockatiels. She has a plan, now she just needs resources to help her get her plan implemented. And when Tyler Brock is enlisted to help her out, she also thinks he can help her with something else…in the bedroom department.

All Tyler Brock wanted was to stay in Texas, the only home he has ever known and the only place he has ever lived. When he finds himself traded to the Raleigh Rockets and having to serve 100 hours of community service due to the little altercation (ahem, bar fight) he had before leaving for Raleigh, little does he know that his community service will lead him right into Emily Holt’s life…and, if he’s lucky, right into her bedroom as well.

This was a quick, fun read with two great characters. It doesn't take long to discover that there is so much more than meets the eye to both Emily and Tyler. Emily is strong, determined, and doing everything she can to make a difference. Tyler is caring, compassionate, and not at all the bad boy the press has made him out to be. From the moment these two first meet you just knew they would be great together and sparks would eventually fly. It was fun watching them fight their attraction to one another, especially since Emily was technically responsible for managing Tyler’s community service and a relationship really wouldn't be appropriate. But when things get a bit out of hand and secrets are revealed, Emily and Tyler find that maybe their happily ever after just wasn't meant to be…or is it?

This is the first book in this series I have read and I will definitely be checking out others. If you like sports romances that leave you smiling, then this is definitely one for you!

I received this book from the publisher through the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program.
