Hawk (The Boys of Summer, #4) by Heidi McLaughlin
ABOUT THE BOOK
It’s another season of Renegade baseball and, as they say, the boys are back in town. All except for all-star pitcher, Hawk Sinclair, who has returned to his hometown and back to the ranch he grew up on to rehab after shoulder surgery.
Real estate agent, Bellamy Patrick, feels like she’s failing at being a single mom. Her son is having a hard time fitting in and she’s hoping that playing baseball will be the answer. When he doesn’t make the team, she’s willing to do anything to help him… except that! And that’s exactly what the little league coach expects.
When Hawk’s asked to coach a team of misfit kids, he balks…until he sees how the program is run and how boys are left out. That’s when he knows he has no choice but to do the right thing and turn these boys into the players he knows they can be.
When a major league pitcher has to go back home after several years to recover from a recent surgery, he has to face a lot of animosity and surprises from family and friends, but his love of baseball with a little help from a beautiful woman and her son may be what he needs to find what he has been missing in his life.
It’s nothing more than a façade. I’m in so much pain, I want to quit. But I won’t.
Hawk was born to play baseball and when he left his family’s ranch in Richfield, Montana, to play in the majors, he knew it was going to be hard to go back home. But the surprises he has in store are more than he bargained for including a past indiscretion and a beautiful real estate agent and her son.
All Bellamy wants is her son, Chase, to be happy, but ever since she came back home to Montana after a bitter divorce, Chase has not made any friends and is not chosen to play on the local little league baseball team due to his jerk of a coach. However, with the help of the sexy and charming local baseball star, they may just make a great team. Too bad he is only in town for 12 weeks.
I savored this winning sports romance with a loving mother who truly wants the best for her son, and a caring baseball superstar who wants to help all the children in his community to be able to enjoy baseball as much as he does.
This is book 4 of the The Boys of Summer series and there were times where past characters were brought in which took a while to connect, but Hawk stands on its own.
Thank you to Ms. McLaughlin for giving me the opportunity to read this book with no expectation of a positive review.
