Welcome to my blog spot- grab a cup of coffee and a good book ;-)
5 Stars for Changeup
I have started calling Nicole Rodrigues the 'Swoon Queen' … and for darn good reason.
Once again, she’s written a book worthy of 5 stars! Hook, line and sinker.
Devin John Gavinwood is the starting pitcher for the Cajuns and he’s cocky, smooth-talking, and a true lady’s man.
Normani Jameson is a broken spirit with a dark secret and a fighting determination. She’s simply trying to hide in the shadows of her sordid past and is content to stay there until Devin brings his cocky self to Double Play PT one fine day.
These two met at Charlotte’s birthday party and haven’t been able to get their minds off one another since. Devin plays a good game, though, on and off the field and soon, he’s starting to tear down Normani’s walls.
As fate would have it though, our pasts have a way of sneaking back up on us when we let our guards down, and Normani’s is no different. Devin is a protective man and starts to take Normani, the woman who’s slowly crawling under his skin and right into his heart, under his wing. But even Devin can’t prepare for what’s coming…
I loved this book, as I have all the others in this heart-warming, swoon-worthy series.
Devin-- Charlotte and Gabe’s son and Bella’s brother-- is a true southern gentleman (aka caveman/cowboy) and he had me swooning right away with his accent and mannerisms. Normani is the inner bad-ass chic in all of us, a true fighter who’s been through hell, wiped the blood from her lips, and stands back up for more. She’s stronger than she knows, despite her fears and her big heart is the most amazing thing about her. She’s a true blue heroine that’s super easy to love. This love story was sassy, sexy and had all the feels. And as always, I loved hearing about the other Gavinwoods, Turners and now Johnsons :-D
If you love baseball-- cowboys-- feisty female leads and a story with a good twist then Changeup is right up your alley -- or down the plate (wink, wink).
It truly has something for every romance fan. You won’t be disappointed!
P.S. I’m super excited for Lacey and Nico’s story, coming up in Walk Off: Book 5 of the Double Play series… super swoon…
