Series: Over the Fence #2
Genres: Sports Romance
Also by this author: Blind Landing, On Thin Ice
After a lifetime of neglect and sorrow, Miles Farriston has hit rock bottom after his lying ex-girlfriend proves that no one in his life sticks around. On the outs with his friends, in jeopardy of losing his baseball career and this close to getting kicked out of Kappa Eta Sigma, Miles is forced to compete in the Greek Life dance competition. What he didn't bank on was getting bright, cheery Chloe Trabucco as a partner.
Ballet, friends and her sorority. The only three things Chloe Trabucco wants to focus on and excel at. So when she is asked to compete, as a freshman, in the popular Greek dance competition, she couldn't be happier. That is, until she learns Miles is her partner. The same Miles she's had a huge crush on for half of her life, and the same guy who made it clear more than a year ago that he wants nothing to do with her.
Her positivity and patience annoy him. His attitude and anger finally drive her to the breaking point. Can they hit a home run, both on and off the dance floor, or will they go down swinging?
Hitting to Win (Over the Fence #2)
Hitting to Win was a DNF for me. Let me say first, it appears I am in the minority! The reviews on goodreads are all pretty good, so maybe I was just being overly sensitive when I read it. Maybe it gets better after 35%? I didn’t stick around to find out. Here are my thoughts:
- Miles was totally unlikeable.
- Chloe was a nice girl and I do not know what she saw in him ever.
- Everything with them was physical-how skinny she was, how buff he was, how little she ate even was discussed.
- Its dancing with the stars meets the greek system and I just didn’t like it at all.
I was really looking forward to the dancing aspect of this book. I also LOVE sports romance. I wanted to love this book. Sadly it was a miss for me. Again, as I mentioned, Hitting to Win was well liked by lots of others so if it sounds interesting to you, check out their reviews on goodreads and make a decision for yourself! I think the author’s writing style is great though so I wouldn’t be opposed to trying another book of hers.
