They call Dash Wallace the Diamond King.
Girls like me grab a guy like that one in a million times.
Hardball is a SMOKING HOT, SEXY romance with a touch of angst and a ton of heart from CD Reiss. It’s a fun, witty, full-length standalone meant for the over-eighteen crowd.
I had no idea what to expect from this book. I’ve not read anything by this author before, but sports romance is my weakness so I was keen to get started. And I am so glad I did.
Dash isn’t your typical sports star. He is a hugely famous Baseball player but he hates the limelight. Dash has his rules and he sticks to them. Until he meets Vivian.
Vivian is a great heroine, she is feisty without being hard. She manages to be strong but still keep a soft side. Throw in a great sense of humour too.
The storyline wasn’t completely unique, I’ve read similar before. But what this author does is add a dose of reality. It isn’t all hearts and flowers. Dash is a hard man. This doesn’t sudden change when he meets Vivian. It feels more authentic than other sports romance novels I’ve read.
This book had me hooked after a few pages. The chemistry between the characters is off the charts and I fell in love with Dash, faults and all. I never expected to be so emotionally involved with this book. But that what Christine’s writing brings to it. It’s quite raw in places, but in a beautiful way.
Gorgeous writing from an Author that I’m keen to read more from.
“Fiery hot and enticingly realistic, CD Reiss’s captivating writing, complex characters and explosive love scenes make Hard Ball an irresistible modern day romance.”
“Delightful, sexy, emotional, exciting, exhilarating. I loved every single second of it! A sports romance with a DASH of kink….it doesn’t get any better than that!”
“Unexpectedly emotional, beautifully written, and decadently naughty, CD Reiss once again owned me heart and soul. Hardball was an enthralling romance from start to finish!! And I never wanted it to end.”
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.
