Forbidden romance as America's sweetheart beauty queen meets a cocky pitcher in this sexy stand-alone baseball romance!

Samantha Winger is using her beauty pageant title to launch a music program for kids. The only catch? She has to follow the contest’s rules, maintaining absolute “decorum” in public.

That’s easy, until DJ Thomas—God’s gift to baseball—throws her a wild pitch. The Raleigh Rockets’ star pitcher slams her in an interview, and the video goes viral.

Sam’s no shrinking violet. She parlays DJ’s apology into a national TV appearance—and a very unexpected, very public kiss. Soon paparazzi catch the couple in a steamy make-out session, and Sam’s music program is at risk. The blazing hot relationship is threatened even more when DJ’s son begs to trade in Little League for music class.

How will Sam and DJ sizzle past the sour notes to find their perfect pitch?

This spicy HEA with no cliffhanger is the first book in USA Today bestselling author Mindy Klasky’s Diamond Brides baseball series.

It sucked! The story ended abruptly. So stupid. I usually try to give fair ratings. But this author did a poor job of wrapping up this story. And for the love of things you never find out why Sam takes on the role of Summer Queen to begin with. There wasn't even an epilogue. Totally not worth the read.

I'm a huge fan of sports romances, especially baseball! I've only come across a few, so I was excited to find this book for free. I really enjoyed it. I found the characters engaging and liked that the love interest had a son. My only complaint is that it wrapped up rather quickly, where I might have liked to see a bit more closure. Overall though, this was a great book and I would definitely recommend it to any romance fan.

Perfect Pitch is a really good, quick read.  Sam and DJ both worked hard to get to their current position's in their jobs, but their chemistry is playing havoc on them.

I LOVE Mindy Klasky. I was first introduced to her through Early Reviews with her As You Wish series and when I won the second book in the Diamond Brides series for this month's Early Review, it was a NO BRAINER to get the first one. It's good. It's not the quality I expect of Klasky. This is NOT to say I have no intentions of reading the rest of the books (I SO DO - this series was written for me, I swear). It's just not as good as the two books of hers I have previously read. It's a slow start to what will be a fantastic series (having read two more books in the series, I can say this with confidence). I think my biggest issue with this book is, while it's a bunch of fun, it kind of skated over some really important issues in the name of making the romance happen by the final page. I appreciate that the purpose of this series is romance, but I felt like some issues between the main characters and the main male lead and the son were not given their proper due. Also, the main characters knew each other for all of TWO MONTHS (maybe) when they got engaged. I know, I know, the series is called Diamond Brides. But COME ON. No history to engaged in two months? Woof. That being said, I LOVE baseball romances. It's a crazy niche genre and YET I've run into before and am SO GLAD I've run into it a second time. I'm so looking forward to the rest of the series and YOU JUST WATCH ME rip through them time and again. B- (good writing, fun story, super appealing to my tastes; slow start to a series, hand waving of important issues, somewhat rushed relationship)

***LibraryThing Giveaway*** This was a cute story of a hot guy and a sexy woman, who overcome some obstacles and fell in love. Nothing unpredictable or shocking but its a good Summer read..

So this was a decent sports read. At just over 100 pages it wasn't too short, but not long enough. I really enjoyed it and can't wait to read the next story. The chemistry between the characters is great and the story line kept me intrigued. I am hoping that in later books these characters will be brought up to close out a couple of things. No parts were left hanging I'm just curious on how some of the smaller parts play out later on. Recommend reading if you enjoy baseball romance :)

While I enjoyed the story, I found the ending a bit abrupt. Overall, it was a good read and I'm glad I bought it.

This book deals with human dynamics, especially Father and Son. It also pointed out just how old school some beauty pageants can be based on todays norms. This was a fast read just as the other books in this series are.
