Double Play is the fourth book in Jennifer Bernard’s Love Between the Bases series. This was a fun, easy read and the best part is the reader was treated to two separate romances. I’ve read all of the books in the series and really enjoyed reading about Dwight Conner and Jim Lieberman. It was fun watching both of their relationships develop. This can be read as a standalone but I highly recommend reading the rest of the books in the series.

Ms Bernard can do no wrong with this series. Loved loved loved every word of it. I especially liked the double storylines in the book. They had their own story but both wrapped together. Jim's awkwardness was just adorable. As was his fear of Nina's brother. Made him seem so normal and natural. Nina's dream of snagging Jim didn't seem like it was ever gonna happen. Thankfully Dwight helped get the ball rolling. He became intrigued by Maggie and her program. So he set up a double date with Jim and Nina and himself and Maggie to get to know her and find out more about the baseball program she developed. Little did Dwight realize...but he soon found himself interested in just Maggie the person. Lots of twists and turns and plenty of laughs (the airplane scene had me laughing so hard). And honestly, I'll never look at Frozen the same way again. Wonderful two for the price of one book.

Double Play is double the baseball, double the love, double the humor! I loved how this book focused on two couples. Ms. Bernard did both couples justice in this book. It was filled with humor, some angst, lots of baseball and love! I love the Kilby Catfish!!!! I loved how the couples were not only focused on themselves. Their love and support of children won my heart! Ever since I stumbled on a Jennifer Bernard book I have been a fan of her writing. I hate that the series is coming to an end, but know that Jennifer will have another series coming up that I will love! This book is a great summer read. I received an advance copy of this book in exchange for my honest review!

This is the continuation of the stand alone series Love Between the Bases by Jennifer Bernard. In Double Play we get the players of Dwight and Jim's love interest. If you have followed this series you know all about Dwight and Jim and their personalities. I was so ready for them to find love. The book switches back and forth between the couples Dwight and Maggie and Jim and Nina. I loved both of the couples and how each of them overcame the obstacles that were thrown at them as they were rounding the bases of love. (Sorry just had to use that pun)

Double Play, by Jennifer Bernard, is the fourth book in her Love Between the Bases series and again Ms. Bernard hits this story out of the park. Our heroes are center fielder Dwight Connor and shortstop Jim Lieberman of the Kilby Catfish, a triple A baseball team in Kilby, Texas. Jim has fallen for Nina but is afraid of her big bother. He doesn’t know how to act when he’s around her and needs to step up his game. The heroines are Nina Stark, Trevor’s sister who has fallen for Jim, and newcomer Maggie Blythe, the whiz-kid who has written a program designed to analyze baseball player’s data. Dwight is fascinated with Maggie and has her join Jim and Nina on a double date. Dwight can’t figure out why he hasn’t been called up to the big leagues yet. He falls hard for Maggie as does Maggie for him. Nina only wants a family to love but she needs Jim to stand up for himself and prove that he really cares for and loves her. There are a number of missteps and cross communication that causes all sorts of mischief as Jim and Dwight get called up for the big dance in San Diego, leaving Nina and Maggie behind in Kilby. I truly loved reading this book. Ms. Bernard, an outstanding story teller, did an outstanding job keeping me interested in this story. I highly recommend this book to other readers and am looking forward to the next entry in this series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

Double Play by Jennifer Bernard is part of her Love Between the Bases series which focuses on the players from the minor league baseball team, the Kilby Catfish. This book brings you not just one but two great romances featuring Dwight Conner and Jim Lieberman. After reading previous books in this series, I am very excited to finally get their stories. I really enjoyed seeing their relationships develop and watching them work out their problems. Whether you are a baseball fan or not, this book is a great, fun read. I highly recommend this book!

Jennifer Bernard gives us Kilby Catfish's most popular player Dwight Conner and my favorite Jim Lieberman. The Catfish have teased Jim and called him "Bieberman. He's shy and doesn't date. Nina is Travis Stark's little sister, she sells cotton candy at the ballpark. She really likes Jim, but he's afraid of her brother. Maggie is new to Texas, she a MIT grad student hired by the San Diego Friars to test her thesis computer program, Statistical Projections Outcome of Player Advancement in Major League Baseball. Dwight and Jim are visiting a children's hospital when they come with the idea for a double date, Nina really wants to go and Maggie finally agrees. You'll love these two couples, what's next after the date. I received an eARC from the author

Dwight and Jim are popular players on the Kilby Baseball team. They both believe they're on the verge of being called up to "the show", but something's holding them back... Maggie strikes out on her own to be a statistician for Kilby and other non-pro baseball teams. Maggie developed a computer program that helps determine if a ball player is ready to advance to the next level of play. It also helps determine if they'll successfully adjust to the pressures of playing at a higher level. Nina, Maggie's roommate, is a simple girl with simple dreams. Although she's young, she's experienced horrible trauma early in life. Trevor, a pro baseball player and Nina's brother, takes overprotective to a new level! He's warned everyone to stay away from his sister, even Jim Bieberman. Nina has a crush on Jim, but can't seem to "catch" his eye. Jim, on the other hand, longs to ask Nina out but gets so flustered when he sees her, that he usually makes a fool of himself. He's also deathly afraid of Trevor! Until he can finally stand up to Trevor and profess his love for Nina, things are at a standstill. Dwight, sensing that Maggie's computer program is holding him back, tries to "charm" answers out of her. As they get to know one another, Dwight is suddenly called up. As much as he wants to play pro, he thinks Maggie had something to do with his sudden promotion. He leaves town and his budding relationship with Maggie in the dust. While there, Dwight plays the worst three games of his life. He's sent back down while Jim is called up.... I loved the quirkiness of Nina and Jim. I loved how she "got" him and his nerdiness! Although Nina had simple dreams in life, I loved how fierce, strong, and loving she was. I loved that she had extremely brilliant friends, but didn't feel "less than". Maggie was a fierce warrior! Born with health issues and overprotective parents, she yearned to live her own life. She loved Dwight for who he was, no matter where he played ball. I also enjoyed the interracial aspect of the story! I truly enjoyed this novel! I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.

I don’t know if it is Bernard’s intention to end the Love Between the Bases series with Double Play, but I am very happy that she’s gone back to these characters and the Kilby Catfish. Dwight and Liberman have always been integral parts of the story and it is fun to see them both get their HEA, a double play as it were. The action moves quickly and baseball is the perfect summer pastime. This is a must read for baseball fans. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this novel.

The perfect blend of romance and baseball makes it the perfect summer read. Love returning to the Kilby Catfish baseball team. Dwight and Jim, both baseball players trying to make it big, when cupids strikes them both with Maggie and Nina. Loved the friendship that these four had. Great catching up with the other players, oh how I love the Catfish. This book is part of a series but can be read as a stand alone. I highly recommend this book.

I loved this book!! Double Play is a double pull at your heartstrings as you hope and wish that these two couples can figure things out before it's too late. They are both a little rough around the edges when it comes to relationships but that's what makes this book so different. It is doubly delicious, doubly good and doubly sweet!!!!! But what would a Jenny Bernard book be without a HEA? Or in this case 2? And what is better than a story about one couple's romance? Well a story about two of course!! I love this series and am hoping it's not really over. These Kilby Catfish warm my heart even as they move up to the big leagues in San Diego! Jim and Nina, FINALLY!!! He has been in love with her for so long and was so afraid to do anything about it because of her brother Trevor who plays for San Diego. Their story is so sweet and I am so happy for them !! And then you have Dwight and Maggie who fall pretty quickly but have some things to sort out. They are a great couple too! Both couples have great chemistry and are simply meant for each other! 5 stars for this 2 for 1 chance at sweet romance!!!

TWO stories, TWO couples, FOUR different personalities…WHEW! Lots to love in this book. And two hawt baseball players who dress up in Disney princess costumes for sick kids? C’mon! Seriously, I had so much fun with the different personalities in this story. Dwight Conner and Maggie Blythe; Jim Lieberman and Nina Stark. Maggie is a tech/stat genius but Dwight’s no slouch, either. Jim left college (studying neurological science) to play baseball, and will go back, and Nina is the most with-it 22 year old you’ve ever met! Their roads to HEA’s are sometimes bumpy but it’s a good ride. All of them need to learn how to trust and to look deep within them for what will truly make them happy and Ms. Bernard does a great job telling their story. It was a light, fun story that had some great reading plots. And Double the Trouble! Don’t worry if you aren’t a big sports fan -- I enjoyed this book and recommend, especially for baseball – or geek! – fans.

They call them the 'boys of summer' and when their escapades are written by the talented Jennifer Bernard, you can be sure there will be plenty of exciting plays, heartfelt moments, and fun, comedic moments that will make you shake your head and laugh out loud. Dwight is the team Captain and he makes fabulous plays in center field but when he strikes out with team statistician, Maggie Blythe, he longs to have a second chance to make a good first impression. Jim Lieberman, the highly talented shortstop, only has eyes for Nina Stark and he has no idea the feeling is mutual. I grinned every time I heard his nickname, Bieberman. Can these guys get their act together long enough to romance the girls of their dreams while they dream about being called up to the big leagues? You will have to read it to find out. I read a complimentary copy of this book and all opinions expressed in my voluntary review are completely my own.

Loved it!! Loved going back to Kilby with double the fun and double romance. A great story featuring Dwight Connor and Jim Lieberman, both Kilby Catfish players ready for their chance at the show. Neither make it out of Kilby before cupid strikes. First is Dwight and the new data manager Maggie Blythe. Different as can be but perfect for each other. Then there's Jim Lieberman and Nina Stark. The woman he's been drooling over forever but was too afraid to ask her out. Can these guys have it all? The women they love and a chance at the bigs?? You'll want to find out what happens! I highly recommend you grab a copy of this one.

This summer's hit!!! Jim Lieberman and Dwight Conner, of the Kilby Catfish baseball club, are visiting children at the Kilby Community Hospital dressed as Disney princesses, and friends Nina Stark and Maggie Blythe are also there. Nina has had her eye on Jim for a while, but her redoubtable brother Trevor terrifies Jim, so Jim never found the nerve to ask Nina on a date. Dwight is not shy, he knows that Jim has been pining for Nina ever since he saw her, and Dwight is also intrigued by Maggie, especially after he learns that she is a grad student who has designed a programme for whom gets sent to the major leagues. So why not make it a double date and see what happens? And what happens is pure magic Jennifer Bernard-style! Every book in the Love between the Bases is fabulous, but DOUBLE PLAY is extraordinary! Combining two romances in one book is not always successful, but Ms. Bernard makes it work like nobody’s business! Adorable, clueless, brainy “Bieberman” is irresistible in his awkwardness, Nina is the sweet girl with solid values and a good head on her shoulders, and I think their romance with a small town feel is what a lot of us don’t dare dream of. They are so perfectly matched and genuinely endearing, young and so relatable. Boisterous and unabashedly sexy Dwight is a god on the outfield and loves the limelight, while Maggie is a serious, introverted intellectual, who has been coddled by her parents, and they are simply amazing together. DOUBLE PLAY has the best meet-cute ever, spectacular dialogues, and characters so well defined that, right from the beginning, I could picture them clearly, and I felt they were my friends as well. The characters have very compelling backstories, and I found fascinating the reasons why Jim and Dwight opted for careers in baseball. DOUBLE PLAY is a fantastic read, even if you don’t know the first thing about baseball, because it is about people, it’s about real love, being true to yourself; it’s a book that grabs you, never lets go, and leaves you feeling happy. And if you love baseball, you will be over the moon! The writing is smooth, word-perfect, and everything is so well done, that twice the number of pages still would not have been enough. Make DOUBLE PLAY your summer treat, that kind of book doesn’t come around often. Heed my most enthusiastic recommendation and enjoy what I deem the best contemporary romance so far this year. Jennifer Bernard has written a no-run, no-hit game, and batted a grand slam for the win! I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
