Reading the Signs by Keira Andrews was baseball magic!
Okay, so I’m not actually that big of a baseball fan. My family is though, so I’m pretty familiar with the rules, dynamics, etc. but watching a baseball game is really boring to me.
This book was not!
Nico and Jake sizzled off the page. I loved their chemistry, the way they worked together, and how genuinely they seemed to care for one another.
The BDSM elements in this book are very light, not hardcore at all. But it did add a delicious little twist.
An age difference between MCs is one of my very favorite tropes and I love the way Keira writes it. Valor on the Move was another one that I adored.
You can’t really go wrong with a Keira Andrews book and this one is no different. Reading the Signs has the characters and steam that keeps me coming back to her books again and again.
This review is based on a review copy.
This hot-headed rookie needs discipline—on and off the field.
Pitcher Nico Agresta is desperate to live up to his family’s baseball legacy. Since he was a teenager crushing on his big brother’s teammate, he’s known he can’t act on his desires. His father’s made it clear there should be no queers on the field, but if Nico can win Rookie of the Year like his dad and brother did, maybe he can prove he’s worthy after all.
At 34, veteran catcher Jake Fitzgerald just wants to finish out his contract and retire. His team doesn’t have a prayer of making the playoffs, but who needs the stress? Jake lost his passion for the game—and life—after driving away the man he loved, and he swore he’d never risk his heart again.
Then he’s traded to a team that wants a vet behind the plate to tame their new star pitcher. Jake is shocked to find the gangly kid he once knew has grown into a gorgeous young man. But tightly wound Nico’s having trouble controlling his temper in his quest for perfection, and Jake needs to teach him patience and restraint on the mound.
When their push and pull explodes into the bedroom, Nico and Jake will both learn how much they’ll risk for love.
