Listen Pitch by Lani Lynn Vale _ Book Review

Rhys Rivera is the star short-stop for the Longview Lumberjacks. Many know him, even more love him. He has a pretty face, a quick smile, and an air of danger about him that everyone seems to adore.

He’s not known as the bad boy of baseball for nothing.
It all started with his father, who decided to be a criminal mob boss, then die.
Fortunately for his uncle, Rhys wants absolutely nothing to do with the family business and runs before anyone can figure out which way is up.

By the time his uncle, the successor to his father’s criminal empire, thinks to look for him, Rhys has made too big of a name for himself to be taken out quietly, and he wants to keep it that way.
Fast forward eight years, and Rhys is living life one breath at a time, just waiting for the other shoe to drop. That shoe coming in the form of a nosy neighbor who has no idea just how hot she is in her mail carrier uniform.

Her sweet little body and positive outlook on life make him want to laugh at how naïve she is when it comes to the way of the world.

The harder he tries to stay away, the weaker he seems to get, until one day he decides to put his morals on hold long enough to satisfy his cravings.

One time is all he needs—or so he tells himself.

But then two pink lines change everything, and all of a sudden, he doesn’t have just himself to worry about anymore.

[I received a digital ARC for an honest review]

Listen Pitch is my second Lani Lynn Vale novel and I enjoyed it as much as the first.

The story line of Listen Pitch was a tad bit crazy and not at all what I expected. I don’t want to say too much about it because honestly the book had a lot of ‘WTF’ moments. Those aren’t necessarily a bad thing, but they definitely kept the story interesting. So I am not going to say more about the plot than the synopsis gives.

Lani Lynn Vale’s writing is snarky and entertaining. Rhys Rivera is physically perfect from his beard to his tattoo covered body 😍 he doesn’t think he’ll ever be able to fall in love because of the way he saw it affect people in his past. His extended family makes his life dangerous and his sports celebrity status makes finding a woman who wants more than his money difficult. Haley is adorable and easily breaks down Rhys walls with her caring personality. He stands by his side through it all, and he shows hers that she’s beautiful, flaws and all.

Lani Lynn Vale is definitely an author I’ll be continuing to read more of in the future.

She was friendly…my feelings were anything but friendly. They were leaning more toward rabid dog and the moment that I let my control snap, which one day it would, this cat and mouse game we were playing would be over.”


“His other was still wrapped around my throat. He didn’t move it, and I didn’t complain about its placement. I actually kind of liked it there. I shivered.”
