Rhys Rivera is the star short-stop for the Longview Lumberjacks. Many know him, even more love him. He has a pretty face, a quick smile, and an air of danger about him that everyone seems to adore.
He’s not known as the bad boy of baseball for nothing.
It all started with his father, who decided to be a criminal mob boss, then die.
Fortunately for his uncle, Rhys wants absolutely nothing to do with the family business and runs before anyone can figure out which way is up.
By the time his uncle, the successor to his father’s criminal empire, thinks to look for him, Rhys has made too big of a name for himself to be taken out quietly, and he wants to keep it that way.
Fast forward eight years, and Rhys is living life one breath at a time, just waiting for the other shoe to drop. That shoe coming in the form of a nosy neighbor who has no idea just how hot she is in her mail carrier uniform.
Her sweet little body and positive outlook on life make him want to laugh at how naïve she is when it comes to the way of the world.
The harder he tries to stay away, the weaker he seems to get, until one day he decides to put his morals on hold long enough to satisfy his cravings.
One time is all he needs—or so he tells himself.
But then two pink lines change everything, and all of a sudden, he doesn’t have just himself to worry about anymore.
I seriously don’t know how Lani Lynn Vale does it. With so many books published, you would think they would get formulaic, but Listen Pitch is an excellent example of how she keeps each book new and fresh.
This really is a fast paced book with lots of action and drama going on, which is in my wheelhouse. I loved that this book could probably translate over to daytime TV soaps.
All Rhys wants to do is play baseball and stay as far from the family business as possible, as in Cosa Nostra family business, but all the caveats of his father’s will make it impossible. Sooner or later, he will have to make some big decisions.
Henley Cree is Rhys hearing impaired neighbor, and as their paths continue to cross, a relationship soon develops between them. I know I say this every time, but I really don’t want to give away too many details because all the events that take place since their first meeting take you a roller coaster of a ride. It’s bam, bam, bam… So, gird your loins!
This was a fast, enjoyable read for me that kept me entertained the whole time. I can’t wait for LLV’s next book!
