Alyssa likes working at her father's batting cages very much. She has two loves, baseball and dancing. She wants to be a professional ballet dancer and is working hard for an important audition that will, if she succeeds, give her the chance to dance all summer. She's been saving for it for a long time, but her father's business is in trouble and Alyssa wants to help him. She can't stand the idea of working for a shiny over the top sports complex that's putting small individual businesses at risk. What can she do to save her family's livelihood? And does falling in love fit into her busy schedule, is there room for a gorgeous baseball player, someone who makes her heart beat faster every time she sees him?
Swinging at Love is an incredibly sweet story. I immediately liked Alyssa. She's mature for her age, she works hard, she never gives up and she's smart. I loved how talented she is. Tristan is a good guy, he's a gentle kindhearted person with many insecurities because he wants to do well and make his family proud. He's a great listener and he knows what he wants. Alyssa helps him to get over his slump and they fall in love. There are a lot of things working against them though and I couldn't wait to find out if they'd have a chance together.
Kendra C. Highly writes about sports in an energetic and lively way. I loved her passion for baseball and liked reading about Tristan's games and Alyssa's excellent advice. Swinging at Love is romantic and cute. Alyssa and Tristan are wonderful together and their love story is endearing. Kendra C. Highly's writing has a nice, easy flow and her books are both fun and charming. I really enjoyed reading this lovely, well written, lighthearted story.
Alyssa's family owns and runs Swing Away, a small local business with eight run down batting cages, which is being squeezed out by a new multi-sport arena called Top Sports which has batting cages, a bar, bowling lanes etc. She and her best friend Lauren are trying out Dallas Ballet Conservatory and practicing every moment they get at Madame Schuler's with their other friend Faith (the lead in The Bad Boy Bargain).
Tristan decides to work on his swing in peace and chooses to avoid Top Sports where the rest of the team hang out, instead going to Swing Away where he meets Alyssa who gives him some pointers about his game. Alyssa and Tristan are instantly attracted to each other but unbeknownst to them Dylan is also attracted to Alyssa and Lauren is attracted to Tristan - cue a quartet of confusion!
This was a really cute, fun romance featuring baseball. I know nothing about baseball, so lots of it went over my head, but it seemed quite detailed. Tristan and Alyssa are all round great characters, hard working, respectful, loyal and family-orientated. I also thought the love quadrangle was well-handled and had a slight twist.
Thoroughly recommended, be aware this is a teen imprint so Alyssa and Tristan are 17-ish, the romance is PG but very sweet and you don't need to know much about baseball to enjoy.
I received a free copy of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
The series is about Baseball players meeting their perfect ballerinas. It's set in high school, and it is intended for the sweet 16 audiences (U.K.). There is high school drama which the older audience may find a little immature.
Tristan is an Outfielder and is afraid he is losing his touch. He needs to work on the problem and hit some balls pronto. Tristan goes to Swing Away hoping to find a secluded place to practice. What he finds is the answer to his problem. He meets the girl of his dreams, but after their first date, he realises he might not be the only one who has noticed her. Que high school drama. This story is a one man love story no love triangle.
Alyssa has her own problems, and Tristan is the perfect solution.
I don't want to give too much away, so that's as much as I'm saying.
4.5 stars out of 5. This series is full of potential, and I look forward to reading the next one.
*Thanks to Netgalley and the author for sending me this book in exchange for an honest review*
You know those romantic comedies - or even just romance actually - that Hollywood doesn’t seem to be making anymore? (I’m thinking along the lines of 27 Dresses and What Happens in Vegas) that’s what Swinging at Love reminded me of and it was glorious!
Tristan and Alyssa melted my heart but were also laugh out loud funny as were Tristan’s team-mates… I loved the cameraderie between Tristan and his team-mates, those were probably my favourite parts of the book.
And that scene just before the end?
YES! #Love it
I’ve loved every Kendra C. Highley book I’ve read so far and I can’t wait to see what more Kendra brings us.
