2016 eLit Gold Medalist - Best Romance Ebook
2016 IPPY Silver Medalist - Best Romance Ebook

“Quint and Annie sitting in a tree…K.I.S.S.I.N.G.”

Quint Lawson and Annie Weber heard that childhood song over and over and it never bothered them. Even though Quint was only five, Annie wasn’t just his neighbor. She would become his best friend and the love of his life. Annie wasn’t interested in dolls, or girly things when growing up. A tomboy at heart, having a boy as a best friend suited her just fine. That same boy captured her heart.

Quint had two passions, his girl and baseball. From kindergarten to college, Quint tore up every baseball diamond he played on. His position was shortstop. His talent was undeniable. Professional ball was most definitely in his future, and he was ready for it. Annie would be right by his side.

When everything in life is perfect, it’s hard to imagine heartbreak in any form. Quint wasn’t immune to its power. This shortstop had no idea what any form of heartbreak could do to his perfect world. When it hit, there were many casualties left in its wake…the most important one was Annie.

Can a person be prepared for, understand, or even endure a misfortune if they’ve never experienced one before? In Quint Lawson’s case the answer is no.

The Shortstop is a contemporary romance stand alone novel meant for readers who are 18+ due to mature content.

I was lucky enough to BETA read this story and I am so happy I got that chance. This story is definitely different than A.M. Madden's other books but it is still amazing. The writing is again superb and the characters are amazingly well developed. Even though the story it is not as fast paced as I would usually prefer but it is still quite intriguing and interesting. And let's not forget Heartbreaking.

As I said before this book is different from everything else I read by A.M. Madden before. At least in my opinion. Whereas her other books had at least a small suspenseful and dangerous feel to them, this one is purely contemporary romance. The hotness factor is also not as high as the Devil's Lair books or Stone Walls. The sexual scenes are also far less than in previous stories and I think that this story is mainly focused on the character's feelings. And in my opinion, that's what makes the story brilliant. At first I thought that the beginning of the book is a little bit too detailed, but further on, I think that it explained a big part of the characters' feelings. So in the end I think that that part fits perfectly into the story and helps the reader to get to know the main characters, their background, their dreams, their feelings and also makes it that much easier to relate to Quint and Annie. It also makes the story complete.

There were few scenes in the book that were so heartbreaking that made cry. And I am not talking about few tears here and there, I am talking about an all out ugly cry. Through A.M. Madden's words I was able to feel every single emotion Annie and Quint were feeling. That part of the book was so devastating to read.

Well, A.M. Madden, you sure knocked this one out of the ball park!! I laughed, I snickered, I even snorted a coupled of times. I cried, I sighed, I even walked away a couple of times to keep from throwing my Kindle, across the room. How is it possible for one man to make you fall in love with him, make you want to choke him, make you hate him, and then make you fall in love with him all over again?? Yes, this is the emotions this book put me through, and I loved every single page of it!!
Quint Lawson and Annie Weber, lived next to one another from a very early age. Annie was more of a tomboy than a girl, and her and Quint were inseparable. The only thing that Quint loved as much as Annie was baseball. He had played the game all of his life, and knew he was headed to the pro's. Life is great, and everything is going the way Quint always planned, but even the best laid plans, have pitfalls. When the unimaginable happens, will Annie be all that Quint needs, will they be able to climb the mountain that is placed in front of them? Better mark your TBR list, cause I am not going to spoil this one for anyone.
A little side note to Ann Marie Madden, when I read the Back-Up Series, I really did not think that you could top either of the books in that series, but with each book you write, you have proved me wrong on that one. Keep 'em coming lady, because I could not put this one down, although it did take me a few days to be able to process this one enough to write a review. I don't feel like anything I say can really do this book justice!!
I was lucky enough to be gifted a copy of this book to read. The fact that it was free has no bearing on my review. I loved it!!

Imagine meeting the Love of your life at a young age,  Your best friend, your soul mate, you reason for living and your inspiration to better yourself.  The Shortstop is a story of Quint and Annie, who met at the age of five when Annie moved next door to Quint, and despite meeting at such a young age their love for each other was destined from day one, and it is because of that love that they can handle the curveballs that are thrown their way.
I Love this book!! It’s a story of friendship, love and your true path in life. I am going to be honest before I first started to read the book, I thought to myself “oh I don’t know if a want a lovey dovey everything is all roses kind of story”,  But once I started to read The Shortstop, from the very first page  I  knew HOW WRONG I WAS!! The Short Stop is an incredibly emotional unforgettable story! I was glued from page one and here it is days later and I still can’t stop thinking about it. It was so much more than I expected! So well written and moving!  FASICNATING & BEAUTIFUL!! This is definitely one of my top reads of 2015!!

What an emotional roller coaster this books was, wow just wow.

This is my first Baseball book, I wish it wasn't because I have so many on too read list but I am so glad this was my first. It was also another first where the couple were so in love and it started off this way.

To know they had been inseparable from such an early age just made you feel so good, and it was so romantic and I loved the main characters they were so uplifting and the author wrote them perfectly.

Of course there is no point to a book if something bad doesn't happen and of course the bad things happen. I was left sobbing to the point I couldn't read and it actually had me feeling something (in a good way).

I loved this book, I loved the low times, the good times and just the general story line. What a great book A.M Madden, Author so so happy with this book, thank you for gifting this to me for an honest review. Just loved this book 5+ stars for sure :)
