Product description

Product Description

What would you do if the hottest new female country music singer asked you to come up to her place?
Nat Owen, formerly nobody from nowhere, now World Series MVP followed his instincts. The star first baseman fell under the spell of the singer the minute she batted her eyelashes at him.
What about Nicki? Were they only friends, or about to become more? The female pro softball catcher and the first baseman had chemistry. Just as Nat made his move on Nicki, Lucy strutted into his life, offering stardom, glitter, and a lifestyle he could only dream about.
What’s a man to do? With his head in one place and his heart in another, Nat bounced from one to the other, trying to make up his mind. When an offer he couldn’t refuse was dangled in front of him, he went for it. Little did he know, he had a lot more to lose than his heart.

4.0 out of 5 stars Blinded by glitter and glam 23 May 2017
By Niki Driscoll - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Wow, where to start. I truly enjoy seeing things from the players standpoint and learning about each players background really brings them to life for me. Nat always felt invisible, So I do understand the attraction and the appeal that he had to Lucy. It is sad to say that a lot of people fall victim to the glitter and glam of being in the spotlight and don't lose the blinders until it is to late. Nicki saw the real Nat, the shy guy who made her smile. She is a school teacher who plays catcher for the women's pro team. She is not flashy or in the news but they had a connection and a chemistry right from day one. This was a well written storyline that focused on the choices we make and the consequences of those choices. The story is filled with true life situations, drugs, alcohol, steroids and losing ones self in the race to reach that coveted goal of fame and keeping it for more than 5 minutes. While I often felt like smacking Nat to get him to see the mistakes he was making I also felt sorry for the pain he was causing , the pain he was sure to feel when he finally woke up and lost the blinders. Another great story that pulls you deeper into the Knighthawk world leaving you wanting to start the next adventure to see who falls next.
I volunteered to review this story for my honest opinion.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nat, Nat, Nat 13 May 2017
By The Mysterious Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Nat, Nat, Nat, boy oh boy did I want to (figuratively) slso you on the back of your head sometimes when I read this book. How could you!

Ok, I think I have to disclose that we do get to a HEA, but I'm not gonna say more and spoil this one for you. I will say that the characters were realistic and believable (despite my desire to physically abuse Nat) and the plot well done. Jean Joachim really does do a top-notch job in writing her sports romances. Once again she's written a very different kind of novel within the same series while somehow staying true to the series (including lovely catch-up cameos with characters that had led prior books in the series) and managing a pretty darn excellent sports romance.

Strongly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Baseball Family ~Fun to read 10 May 2017
By Cahm Merritt - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This book like all in the series could stand alone but why do that when you get to continue visiting your favorite characters from previous books?

I have to say that Nat was sweet but naive and definitely but our heroine through the ringer on their way to their HEA.

Another great read from auhor Jean Joachim

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read. 12 April 2017
By Renee - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is book four in the Bottom of the Ninth series by author, Jean Joachim. This one is a little grittier than the other three books in this series, but the story it tells will have you thinking about life choices and the effects they can have not only on the here and now but on your entire future, as well.

Nat Owen is young, handsome, single, and has just become the World Series MVP. He’s on top of the world and living his life to the fullest, including dating a world famous country singing star. Sharing in all her perks, publicity, and parties, and yet he is also yearning for what his teammates have. A wife or fiancée to share his dreams and accomplishments with, someone he can talk baseball with, someone like Nicki Overton, the best friend of his best friend, and teammate’s, fiancée. Nat is under the impression that, in his charmed life status, he can have both country singer, Lucy, and beautiful, female, softball catcher, Nicki.

Nat has always been a gentleman with Nicki, flirting with her, but never stepping over the line. This has led Nicki to believe that Nat is not really interested in anything more than friendship with her. She has been attracted to him since the first time they met but has never really let him know that. She’s afraid he will reject her, and break her heart. Not willing to take that chance she decides she will have to settle for just friendship with Nat.

A holiday snow storm changes everything for Nicki, but Nat is not ready to give up all the glitz and glamour that Lucy can bring to him and he has a hard time understanding why Nicki is not willing to wait for him. Life is tough, and Nat is about to learn some lessons the hard way.
What will it take to make Nat realize that fame and fortune will never warm his heart or give him the peace, joy, and comfort that Nicki did?

This one brought out all my emotions and had me on the edge of my seat from beginning to end. It had me laughing one minute and angry the next. Mentally high-fiving Nicki while wanting to smack Nat on the back of his head and tell him to wake up. I love this book, it allows its characters to be human, to have flaws, and gives them a chance to redeem themselves. It has a soul.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent sports romance series that keeps getting better 12 April 2017
By Beach Bum Books - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This series just gets better and better. This time we have a male protagonist, Nat, who has to deal with more than the usual tough decisions brought on by his past and current circumstances. Throw in a heady mix of temptation, a feeling that he needs to grab the bull by the horns because, if nothing else, fame is fleeting and he's got one shot to really hit the spotlight, and you have a very real conundrum for a man who wants to do right by everyone. In other words, he's blinded by success and making some poor choices he'll live to regret. Naturally one of those regrets has to be Nicki who tries hard but comes up short enough she's forced into making mistakes that mirror Nat's.

Their journeys and the consequences each must deal with makes for a very realistic scenario, and I will admit, my pompoms beat wildly for Nicki and maybe not so much for Nat, but in the end, he managed to win me over... big time.

The writing, as always, is crisp and on point, and it draws you completely into this very competitive and demanding world of professional sports. But Nat Owen, First Base goes that extra mile and takes you into the uncomfortable world of reality checks when ambition and fame seriously conflict with what makes their star players and everyone close to them tick. The ending is satisfying and I'm eagerly looking forward to more books in this excellent sports romance series.
