Half and Half Trade Off by Elley Arden My favorite of this collection! Ben’s sweetness and charm just shine through the words on the page, and Scarlett’s shift from all-business to woman-in-love keeps you invested in the story. I didn’t want to put it down! Maybe it’s because I check the same box as these two, but there was something so refreshing about reading a romance in which the main couple are both a bit more *ahem* mature. I will definitely be looking for more work from Elley. Slugger Gone South by Alicia Hunter Pace I’m feeling a bit wobbly about this story. While the writing is beautiful and the characters solidly true throughout, the amount of anger Marc brings to the story made me uncomfortable. He and Bailey have a rough start but end up snuggled in a closet at the end, so I guess Marc’s anger shouldn’t bother me…but it does. I fully admit this has more to do with my perceptions than with the book itself. While I probably wouldn’t read this story again, I would definitely check out more by this author. Safe at Home by Leslie P. Garcia If this was a stand-alone novella, I’d give it two stars. While Amanda is an interesting character, Josh is inconsistent and not very note-worthy. The pacing is a tad slow and the plot a bit of a stretch. That Ol’ Team Spirit by Bea Moon Nothing about this particular story could keep my attention. There was a huge focus on the mystery surrounding the death of a ball player decades before with very little time left for the rekindled romance between Trish and Rob. Both characters came off immature and angry and just…not very likeable. I skimmed the last third and nothing I read made me want to go back and restart. It’s just not my style. Overall I’d rate this book three stars. While the last two stories didn’t really make me stay up late reading, the first two were well done. I’ll definitely be looking into more books/stories by Elley Arden and Alicia Hunter Pace.
