Another great book in this series. I love this series, main reason is you can read each as a stand-alone, out of order or together. There is a group of "main" characters that pop up in each of the books, but you will not get lost if you haven't read any of the other books. This book takes place during the off season, so only a little bit of baseball this time around. But we get Kaz! He is Japanese-American, (I loved that) and has studies the ways of the samurai since he was a child. This helps him in his everyday life. He meets Sabrina as a favor of her brothers, he wants Kaz to help her with her shoulder injury. Another great thing about this series; its not all about baseball, or the romance between the 2 main characters, but we get suspense and a bit of mystery in each story.  I enjoyed the touches of the Japanese way of life, while still trying to live in modern times.

Reviewed for Read Your Writes Book Reviews by Julie Aim for Love by Pamela Aares was a very good book. It was hard to follow some of the Japanese customs and words but very interesting. Sabrina and Kaz's story is another love at first sight but takes a while for them to realize it. Kaz Tokugawa is an up and coming major league baseball player with a secret vow he made to his grandfather on his death bed that prevents him from fully giving himself to Sabrina. Sabrina Tavonesi is an up and coming actress from a big family that has an instant connection to Kaz that she tries to resist. In the end, they get together because all the stars line up as they should. Source: Author

Another Home Run for Pamela Aares! Aim for Love is the fifth book in the Tavonesi series and my absolute favorite story so far. Sabrina has been a part of this series from the first book, and she has such a wonderful personality that I have liked her ever since she was introduced to us as Alex’s sister. The chemistry between Sabrina and Kaz is amazing. Seeing them fight the battles between their own hearts and minds because of the love they feel for one another was so gripping that I was absorbed in this story until the very end. Learn what it is like to make a death-bed promise that you wish was never made because you no longer know if it can be kept, then see if Kaz will allow himself to follow the only path his heart wants to take. Pamela Aares is definitely a must read author for me.  I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

This is definitely one of my favorite series. I have been lucky enough to have reviewed four of the books in this series.  The stories are sweet, heartfelt, and satisfying. Everything from the characters to their connections to everyone and everything around them draw you in. This story was a little different and interesting. You know from the start of each book, it has to do with baseball; however it’s the extra that gives the stories a kick. I love the way the samurai was entwined within the story. The vow Kaz makes to Sabrina at the end seals the deal. The story itself was everything I have come to expect from this series. I love Obaa. It’s always refreshing to have an older character share a bit of wisdom or vanquish demons. Whatever works, right?  As always, the characters weave in from the other books and really help make the story. The characters introduced with each book in the series are loveable and pull on your heart strings. From the day Sophia starts a little rehab therapy with Kaz, you know there is rocky road ahead.   What do baseball, actresses, and samurais have in common? Well, this amazing book of course. I definitely recommend Aim for Love to anyone looking for a romantic read. Up until now, I have stated they can be standalone books.  Maybe I am just too wrapped up in the series now, but I highly suggest reading them all in order. You will enjoy them so much more. Congrats on another amazing addition to the series Pamela Aares.

I have had the wonderful opportunity to read and review every book in this series so of course I immediately signed up for this one as soon as I received the invite. All of the characters are strong people that are dealing with personal problems but the men are all baseball players. I’ve loved every couple and this was no exception. I’ve been looking forward Sabrina’s story and it was an awesome one. I love how these books have baseball in common yet they don’t dominate the story. Kaz and Sabrina have an instant attraction to each other but both are determined to stay away from it at first. Kaz is helping Sabrina heal from a shoulder injury but it’s so much more than that. He’s a sixteenth generation samurai so he has a really interesting way of looking at things. His reserve is the opposite of Sabrina’s vibrancy in many ways yet they work well together. Their personalities compliment each other in many ways and I loved reading about them. I loved the story line in this book. There are so many layer to the plot line so even when one issue is resolved (even if only temporarily) another one is being dealt with. As a result, I was constantly itching to keep reading so I could get the next part of the story. Everything flowed really well and not only were the characters great but it was nice to get glimpses of previous books’ characters. This truly is a fantastic book in a wonderful series that will keep you interested from page one. 5 out of 5 stars!

4.5 stars! I'm a little shocked this is my first novel by Pamela Aares. She and her books have been on my radar for a while and I;m very glad I finally got a chance to read one. While I was expecting a good book, I wasn't expecting it to be as powerful as it was. I love it when a book surprises me and exceeds all my expectations. Aim For Love is the first novel I've ever read that's featured such intricate detail about Samurai's and their culture. I was fascinated by it all and I found it surprising at how much of a mental as well as physical art it was. I must say Pamela Aares did a fantastic job with her background research. I also enjoyed how there were multiple story arcs that were very well layered. Sabrina had her own conflicts and so did Kaz. There was overlap, but I never knew which direction the story was going to go in. I also liked how family played a big role in this book. I loved Kaz's Obaa. She was wise, loving, kind, and hilarious. I want to be like her when I'm her age. I read this book fairly quickly. There were no lull in the action. I was reading as fast I could turn the pages. I would love to visit a peach farm like Kaz's or a winery like the one Sabrina's family had. The descriptions were so vivid, I wanted to be walking by the lake or up and down the rows with them. Pamela has done a great job with this book and I am really looking forward to reading more of the books in this series.
