Praise for HARDBALL:
“Dash Wallace is a dirty talking, sexy professional baseball player who falls hard for the girl next door, but beware… your heart will take a beating as you watch him struggle with sticking to all he’s ever known at the risk of losing the best thing that ever happened to him. Hardball is one of those books that will suck you in and won’t let you go until you devour every last, juicy bite.”
— Sawyer Bennett, NY Times Bestselling Author
“Fiery hot and enticingly realistic, CD Reiss’s captivating writing, complex characters and explosive love scenes make Hard Ball an irresistible modern day romance.”
— Katy Evans, NY Times Bestselling Author
They call Dash Wallace the Diamond King.
He’s the hottest commodity in baseball and in the bedroom.
When he runs the bases, every woman’s eyes are glued to his stunning body and a smile that puts the night lights to shame.
I’m no queen. I’m a regular girl with a regular job. I just watch him on TV and from the bleachers, season after season.
Girls like me grab a guy like that one in a million times.
My number just came up, and he is as spectacular in bed as he is on the field.
But there’s not a woman in the world who can distract Dash Wallace from the game. Not for a moment. Not even me.
Until the night I do. And everything changes.
C.D. Reiss has done it again – If you’ve fallen for any of her other characters? Be prepared for a very healthy dose of testosterone and sex appeal with Dash Wallace. What do you get when a Librarian and a pro-baseball player can’t seem to get enough of each other? You get some of the hottest stuff I’ve read this year.
Dash isn’t your stereo-typical pro-baseball player…. he’s down to earth… he’s real. Vivian Foster, the librarian who he can’t stop thinking of isn’t sure what to make of the man before her. She’s hesitant to get lost in Dash, he’s rich, famous and gone for most of the year at training and playing baseball…. she knows that this thing between them could destroy her – but he convinces her…. in the sexiest of ways to give it a chance… to forget her reservations (and his own for that matter) and give whatever it is between them a chance to flourish. And does it…. good god.
Vivian is a little closed off – she’s been in a relationship that suddenly is no more. Feeling the affects of everything in her past, yet experiencing something new with Dash – wanted, need even….. and fucking worshiped. Yet, she’s still trying to keep both feet planted on the ground.
I liked Dash at first – I loved him later …. I wanted to throttle him at different spots throughout the story, he’s a very complex character that C.D. Reiss brings to life flawlessly. Vivian is a girl that’s very much inside us all. But as in all C.D. Reiss’s books, her characters are bare…. real and damaged in their own rights which makes them flawed in a very relatable way.
Do yourself a favor and check it out!
About the Author:
CD Reiss is a USA Today bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up she’s at the well hauling buckets.
Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.
She’s frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn’t ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.
If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.
