Product Description

Shakespeare believed there was always humor in tragedy and tragedy in humor.

My life proved his theory as fact.

At eighteen I was a single parent moving to this small town to be with the man I loved. The one who was supposed to love and cherish me in return.

Finding out he had a wife was tragic.
Remaining in love with him in spite of her was more tragic.
My mom and best friend setting me up on a long string of blind dates was an ongoing tragedy.

Nine years later, I’ve learned to see the humor in most situations.

My mom and best friend setting me up on disastrous blind dates.
My son’s jokes.
The fire alarm going off each time I cook.

My constant bright spot always adding to the humor was my son, Hayden. But when Hayden had a life-threatening allergic reaction, the man who came to help my little boy became my own savior. His laugh, his smile, and the way his eyes lit up when he spoke to my son made him a beacon of light in both our lives.

But I wasn’t the only one who noticed him.
When I began having feelings for the man my best and only friend had fallen for, I knew following my heart would once again lead to a fresh round of heartbreak.

Love led me to this town.
Lies kept me there.

Would history repeat itself?
Or had life just thrown me another Curveball?

I absolutely loved this book. This story, about a single mum and a hot firefighter gave me all the feels. I was invested from the very first chapter. It was original and heartfelt, with some surprising twists.
Initially I didn't really like Ella. I thought she just let everyone walk all over her, but as the story progressed, her strength, beauty and resilience shone through. Coen had integrity and is now my favourite book boyfriend. He showed strength and loyalty, and an absolute heart of gold, as well as being smoking hot!
Another 5 star read from Mariah Dietz!

Firefighters? Heck yeah, time to set my house on fire

Curve Ball was not really what I was expecting. Though I am not sure really what I was expecting.

Curve Ball is a cute and sweet romance. And pretty tame and pure (probably says a lot more about what I read than the book that I point this out!)

Ella and Coen's story is very sweet. The single mum, ostracised by the town she lives in, and the firefighter who can't help but be drawn to her. They are about the only characters in the book that I really liked.

Ella's best friend is a b!tch whom I really disliked from the minute she turned up on the page - a feeling that wasn't wrong

The town - now, I live in a small town and know the dynamics when you move into a small town, however this town was like a cross between The Stepford Wives and The Scarlet Letter. OMG the people, they all needed to be high fived... in the face... with 4x2. They are horrible, horrible people that I may have yelled at as I was reading.

Most of the time, I really did feel that I wanted to scream at Ella to grow a set and tell the people in this town to STFU. The way she cowered from any confrontation - yes I kind of understood why, but knew that things would have been better if she fought back. Gah!

I adored Ella's boy Hayden - he really does steal the scene every time.

So whilst Curve Ball may have been a little tame for me, it is a cute and adorable romance.

Mariah Dietz's Curveball was thrown straight to my heart! The uniqueness of this story overwhelmed me as a I read it. Sometimes as a reader you just crave different....Curveball is what I was craving.

Coen is a firefighter. Ella is a working single mother. Their lives are extremely different. What could bring them together?! Baseball, of course. Ella's son and Coen share the love of the game.

Ella is scared to share or feel love beyond the safety she has with her son. "When you give your heart away there’s no way to fully get it back. Pieces will be left behind, lies will drill holes, deceit will cause cracks, and the feeling of being unwanted will create a doubt your heart was ever whole."

Can Coen change Ella's feelings? Will he throw a curveball at her life? Does she believe she has a chance at happiness? You will have to read to find out.

Thank you, Mariah Dietz, for Curveball. I truly loved this contemporary romance. I recommend this book to all readers of romance. An absolute must read.
