Overview

Quit Your Pitchin' by Lani Lynn Vale

What's wrong with my butt?

She means those words to be directed toward the woman beside her, not him. But he can't stop himself from answering. Not when her ass is the most magnificent thing he's seen in his life.

Apparently, answering her with 'not a damn thing' wasn't what she was expecting.

She likely wasn't expecting the baseball she took to the face at his next at bat, either.

All it takes is one ill-fated foul ball, and George Hoffman, Lumberjacks center fielder, falls head over heels in love with Wrigley Field--and yes, that is her real name.

From that point forward, George and Wrigley fall into a fast whirlwind love that ends with them eloping to Vegas. And he has his potty mouth, titty bar owning, pain in the ass grandmother to thank for it.

Not that he's complaining or anything.

Who wouldn't want to be married to a woman that made his heart race like he was in the final game of the World Series?

The only problem is trying to convince her of that.

4 Star Review Quit Your Pitchin (There’s No Crying In Baseball #2) by Lani Lynn Vale This was a new author to me and I have no idea why that is. This was at times an emotional roller coaster of a read with plenty of laugh out load moments along with angst, sorrow and heartache. This is Furious George Hoffman and Wrigley Field's book (yes you read that right). I have to say that the names were what drew me to read this book in the first place and I am so glad I did. I really fell hard and fast for George Hoffman, what a man. Ironically when Wrigley attends the Lumberjack baseball game she has no clue who the players are, she is just going to appease her younger sister Diamond. Not only that, but despite her name she has no interest in baseball.; a fact that Furious George finds delightful when he meets her. When Wrigley gets hit in the face with a baseball thanks to George he immediately goes to her assistance. George is attracted to the feisty Wrigley and she is equally entranced. Following a drunken visit to Las Vegas, George and Wrigley find themselves married and what follows is a story with plenty of twists and turns and some surprises I did not see coming. I really loved the secondary character of George’s grandmother, she had me cracking up with laughter numerous times. This book was well written with characters that kept me entertained and I cannot wait to read more in this series.

This one was harder for me to get into the story line and characters as it was for me with the first in the series... not as enjoyable as other books by her.

Lani Lynn Vale did awesome on this book!! George and Wrigley fell in love fast and furious. His Grandmother was a hoot and their best cheerleader. This book was so real about how families actually are and how they aren’t perfect. But with love and determination George created his own family. The characters were full of life and made me laugh. But life is complicated as shown in this story. Love the way George and Wrigley meet! Hope to see more of them in the next book! Thank you Lani for creating such wonderful and complex characters !! Worth buying and reading for sure!!

I loved "Pitch Please" - so I was excited when this book finally released. It felt rushed, scattered, I felt the back story of George's relationships with his brother and sister was just thrown in there to show a little drama for George in comparison to Wrigley's issues with her brother. Did not enjoy in comparison to her other books

This book was again a wonderful book. Spunky characters mixed in a good story line. Just the right amount of laughter and sadness to make you want to continue reading until the end. I highly recommend this short read. Check out all Lani Lynn Vail's books.

I've been wanting to read a book from this author for quite some time but other books were pilling up and I didn't had time to do so, and now that I have an opening I just want to dig in and fall in love. Lani Lynn Vale has a simple and steamy writing full of feelings and sassyness into the mix. It's like a breath of fresh air that I didn't knew I needed. Quit Your Pitchin' is her latest release and tells the stories of George and Wrigley. This book is the second book from the There's No Crying in Baseball series and I advise you to read book 1 first. Wrigley was taken to a baseball game, against her will, but for her sister she would do everything, and couldn't imagine the turn her life was about to get when one ball hit her right in the eye... George is a baseball player that lives and loves this sports. He really enjoys what he does and he's very good at that. He's loved but everyone and he just knows it. I really loved this book. I'm still smiling. The plot is amazing, very well written, super engaging and intense. Each chapter made me want to keep reading forever and thinking about stopping was out of the picture. When I started reading this book I thought that it would be a sweet book, with an instant chemistry without any bumps on the road but I was so wrong... Why do people get happy when they hurt someone? Why are surrounded by greedy people that only want money or something else? The chemistry between the characters is beautiful despite all the trouble surrounding them and let me just say that I got really mad while reading a few scenes. I've laughed so hard but I've also cursed. Jeez... There were parts of the story that I saw myself wanting to hurt someone really bad... It was like riding a bumpy rollercoaster that I wanted to get out but didn't want to at the same time. Confusing right? I'm sad that I haven't read the first book from this series but I really need to... Lani this book amazed me. I was instantly hooked and didn't wanted it to end.. What's next? I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

When I found out that Furious George was going to get his own book, I was ecstatic! His character charmed me in Pitch Please and the story of him and his ex-wife was intriguing. And I can say … I was not disappointed. What I really loved was that I got their backstory. I got to see how they met and then what went wrong. These two characters are definitely perfect for each other. They get each other on a different level, but there are always misconception. The secondary characters in this book play a large role in what happens between the characters and that role can be fierce! There are family members that deserve nothing but a throat punch and others that need more time and understanding due to extenuating circumstances. But overall, Wrigley and George were awesome together. Their interactions, even the bad ones, kept my interest in the story. I do feel that both gave up a little too easy and didn’t fight hard enough, but that is just my opinion. However, that does not take away from the whole of the story. I was pulled right in while reading and experienced the sadness and pain along with the characters. They were engaging and that made the story.

This is going to be a hard review. You see, I LOVED the first book in this series, Pitch Please, and this second book had me hooked right away. However, the romance/story moved really fast, and before we were even halfway through, it took a really, really sad turn. And then, it just seemed to keep getting more depressing! So many bad things happened to George and Wrigley, I had a lot of tears with this one. In the end, they still got their HEA, but it was an emotionally wringing story. I'm glad I read it. I really did like George. But Wrigley's family, especially her brother, well he sucked. And her sister, well, it was hard to decide on her. Because when I say it felt like it moved pretty quickly, there were some parts of the story that we only got a quick retelling from the characters about what went down, and I think I'd have liked to have that more fleshed out in the story. If you enjoy sports romance, especially with hot baseball players, you need to read this series. Just prepare to cry with this one.

Overall the story was okay. Well written, as always, by LLV... but lacking her usual depth of character, emotion and story line. Just wasn't a hit for me. Hoping her next book is back to the amazing work that she usually puts out.

Lani Lynn Vale has done it again! Just the right mix of drama and romance. It wouldn't surprise me if this one hit the bestseller lists. Can't wait to read the next one! This author always gives the readers a book that leaves them smiling.

Baseball and romance! From the title and blurb, I expected humor and this one has that in spades. Between crazy silly situations and witty dialogue, there are plenty of laughs. There are also loads of feels on George and Wrigley's fast track to romance. This pair does things a little backward in that department, but they are absolutely perfect together. Between meddlesome family members, misunderstandings, some rash actions, and a near tragedy, this couple has a lot to deal with. The emotions run high and give this couple a lot more than they bargained for. It's impossible not to fall in love with George. He's just so darn sweet and Wrigley has the sass and attitude to compliment his sweetness. On the crazy ride that is their love story, Vale pulled me in and made me feel everything with them. I laughed, I cried, I got mad, I became frustrated enough to shake them both until their teeth rattled, I got all gushy and ooh'd and ahh'd, and then I laughed some more. The story does have some time jumps that would normally be distracting, but they are done in a way that doesn't disrupt the flow, and I didn't feel like I missed anything. Bottom line - this sports romance is engaging, loads of fun, and a wonderful mix of sweet and sexy.

George Hoffman and Wrigley Field, the hero and heroine of Lani Lynn Vale’s newest release, Quit Your Pitchin’, seem like a match made in baseball heaven, except for the fact that the heroine doesn’t know the first thing about the game of baseball, which is a bit of an issue since George is a professional baseball player for the Lumberjacks, but while Wrigley can use a ‘Baseball for Dummies’ book to acquire some much needed insight into America’s past time, neither she nor George has the power to control the media or his fans when it comes to their relationship and their issues being plastered all over the Internet, which is definitely a point of contention, especially due to how quickly things happened between them and how much chaos Wrigley’s siblings bring into their lives. Things between George and Wrigley heat up extremely fast, which means they quickly move forward with every aspect of their relationship and for this reason, it was difficult to get my bearings on one situation and then have to keep moving forward to another one when I hadn’t fully understood the repercussions of the previous one, and because A LOT happens between them and as a result of other people’s actions, I needed more information, deeper insight, and more indication of why everything affected them the way they did. The media/fans’ aspect of the story was absolutely necessary, and it was realistic, even as disgusting as it is for people to do the things the paparazzi do and the things fans say about people they don’t truly know. With social media as rampant as it is nowadays and the freedom it seems to allow people’s nasty inner critic to come out and freely share things that should remain unspoken, it’s not easy for professional athletes and the people they care about to not be raked over the coals for even the smallest on incidences. The secondary characters are quite the contrasting group. George’s grandma is a hoot and I like how she tells it like it is. It’s easy to see how much she adores her grandson and how proud she is of him, and her relationship with Wrigley is something that Wrigley desperately needs and despite the less than stellar events that occur, that bond remains in tact. George and Wrigley’s siblings are complete asshats who seem to use the pair more than help them, and while George and Wrigley’s constant support of them illustrates the fact that they are good and compassionate people, I wanted George and Wrigley to wash their hands of the users, especially those responsible for making things between the couple so much harder than they would have been if these blood relatives would have had their own act together. Furious George definitely lives up to his nickname, especially when things go to shit between him and Wrigley, and while he does make some mistakes along the way, Wrigley seems to be the more stubborn one of the duo, which makes their lives extremely difficult and it also makes for one frustrating and unpredictable journey to what readers hope is a happily ever after. 4 Poison Apples

Quit Your Pitchin´ by the Lani Lynn Vale is the second story in the series of standalones, There´s No Crying in Baseball. The previous book, Pitch Please tells Hancock and Sway´s story. Wrigley Field is a 28 year old. She´s a certified occupational therapist who doesn´t care for sports. She accompanies her sister Diamond to a baseball game and promptly gets striked with a ball and a gorgeous redheaded certain baseball player. Geoe´rge - Furious George - Hoffman is very successful pro baseball player. He´s smitten with Wrigley. They start to date and some time later - ok no spoilers here. Only so much - Quit Your Pitchin´is a perfect summer read, witty and fun , with great charcaters and very well written. Wrigley and George´s story made me laugh, made me smile, made me cry too and Iove every single word. This book is my favorite read by this author and I give 5 stars.

Oh my, my, my. Lani Lynn Vale nearly killed me with this book! I have been wanting Furious George’s story for so long now and I have to admit, this was worth the wait. Quit Your Pitchin’ is still full of Lani’s signature humor and wit but also seriously packing the feels. I swung from cracking up, to sobbing, to happy sighing so many times while I read Wrigley and George’s story. I probably looked like I was nuts, but holy crap did their story have me hooked! Furious George was everything I dreamed he’d be and more. Sexy, sweet, my god is the man sweet, and funny. That said he occasionally still made me want to kick him in the way most men make women want to kick them at some point lol! George and Wrigley make a whole new definition when it comes to a whirlwind romance and I falling just as hard and fast as they did while reading. Wrigley is seriously funny, sassy, and kind. Everything I love from the women Lani writes. Much like George though, I also occasionally wanted to kick her too. In that way your best friend does when you need it. These two had quite a few hills to climb even with how deep their love ran and left me crying like a baby a few times but I have to say, I freaking loved it. Ever tear was worth how amazing these two are!
