Synopsis
What happens to a person when they're literally brought to their knees?

Captain Beau Harris' entire world came crumbling down. His own guilt consumed him to the point he was confined to the tortures of his own mind and faced with the reality of his own fate.

Until her. The one woman he should run from. The one woman who could bring light and warmth into his dark, cold world even though he's content with the reality he's destined to suffer.

She should be forbidden, yet she’s not.

Temptation has no boundaries. It teases you until you have nowhere to hide, nowhere to run, except straight into the arms of the one person who could claim your soul.

You think you know what’s about to hit you. You have no idea.

STONE - book three in The Elite Forces Series is going to bring you to your knees.



“You going to stand there all day or get this shit done and over with, bitch?”  He stands with his arms spread open as if he’s waiting for me to drive the first punch.  That’s exactly what I do.  I nail him with a right hook that lands on the side of his temple. He staggers, but before I have time to swing again, he plows into me with a kick to my stomach, followed by a punch that leads to a crunching noise from my nose.  Blood spurts down my face, and pain ricochets from one side of my head to the other.  His arms go up like he’s challenging me to come at him again.

“Come on, Harris, you need this. I can take it, you pussy.  Let’s go.”  And I explode with that phrase.  I grab him by the back of the neck, rolling us to the floor. Fists start flying fast and furious as if we’re fighting for our lives.  An explosive punch to his ribs sets him off exactly how I want him.  He attacks with the force I need.  Brutal punches to my face bring pain to the surface before a sweep of my leg has me dropping back down to the floor.  I welcome the pain.  I need the pain.  It eggs me on and revitalizes me in a way I crave.
My next move is both spontaneous and unpredictable even to myself.  I move swiftly and smoothly, snapping up off the floor.  A swift kick to his jaw before I tumble backwards leaves him stunned and holding his face.
This is a fight with no rules, no winner, where neither one of us is looking to be the undisclosed master.  It’s a language all of its own.  This is a lesson I need and one he’s been dying to give.  Only, I don’t plan to make it easy on him.
I know I’m hiding behind a mask of despair, and knowing this is when I let my guard down, when I decide to surrender and allow the man who has been doing his job as a friend to try and bring me back to the man I once was.  I allow him to get one last destructive punch in.  This is the one I need the most.  The one that clearly knocks me on my goddamn ass until I’m lying there breathing heavily.
My mind starts to tell me it’s time to move on.  My chest explodes inside, and I finally feel the shards of reality that are heating up the blood pumping through my veins.  It’s time to realize she isn’t coming back to me.  It’s time for me to take the lesson of life that has pulled me under this rough, intense current of self-destruction.  It’s his punch to the side of my head that fucking makes me feel I’m alive.  Here’s the best part though, I don’t care if I’m alive.  I care about nothing.  This isn’t living, and yet it’s all I’ve got.

FASTBALL_ebook_AMAZON sm.jpg

Synopsis:

USA TODAY BESTSELLING authors, Terri E. Laine and A.M. Hargrove bring a new full-length standalone, Contemporary Romance novel.
 
Our relationship starts off like a bad joke.
A gorgeous guy walks into a bar and says to me, “Do you want to F#ck?” and damn if I don’t say yes.
And that should have been it—the punch line.
We never should’ve seen each other again.
Only we do.
Turns out sex on a stick, Ryder Wilde, is more than an orgasm-giver. He’s a player. Not just any either. A Major League Baseball pitcher. And damn, I want to be his catcher.
Except he doesn’t want to play any games or follow my rules:
No relationships.
No falling in love.
Because he’s used to winning … and wants to claim me as his prize.
His mission is to own me, body and soul, no matter how much I push him away.
Powerless to stop him, I can only hope my heart isn’t another casualty of his fastball.

My Review & Rating

I was hooked into this book from page one.
That hasn't happened to me in a looooooooooooooong time... seriously, page one.
 
I'm not one to sugar coat, and these two are crazy together.  Sometimes they are great and others I legitimately couldn't stand what they were doing to each other.  You all know I hate spoilers sooooooo I don't want to give anything away so I'm done talking about the storyline.  
 
I love these two authors - their work is fantastic.  I can't say enough about it; really their work is so good.  I don't know how you write so well with another person and still sound like one author talking.  I LOVE IT.  Whatever they're doing I hope they keep it up and give me so much more for my library!! 
 
This book's flow is amazing.  Obviously from my gushing above, the writing style is one of my all time favorites.  Their characters are so developed, complicated, emotional, and so very well thought out and put together.  The story unfolds beautifully through the book.  You learn everything just as you need to; there isn't any unless information or weird out of place sections.
 

I highly recommend this book to you!

 

Obviously from all this love you can guess my rating... I'm giving Fastball 5 Stars!

About the Authors:

A.M. Hargrove

One day, on her way home from work as a sales manager, USA Today bestselling author, A. M. Hargrove, realized her life was on fast forward and if she didn't do something soon, it would be too late to write that work of fiction she had been dreaming of her whole life. So she made a quick decision to quit her job and reinvented herself as a Naughty and Nice Romance Author.
She fancies herself all of the following: Reader, Writer, Dark Chocolate Lover, Ice Cream Worshipper, Coffee Drinker (swears that coffee, chocolate, and ice cream should be added as part of the USDA food groups), Lover of Grey Goose (and an extra dirty martini), #WalterThePuppy Lover, and if you’re ever around her for more than five minutes, you’ll find out she’s a non-stop talker.

Terri E. Laine

Terri E. Laine, USA Today bestselling author, left a lucrative career as a CPA to pursue her love for writing. Outside of her roles as a wife and mother of three, she’s always been a dreamer and as such became an avid reader at a young age.
In her early years, she and her best friend would tell each other stories over the phone when they were bored. They called them their "soap operas" and generally revolved around whatever boy they liked at the time.
Many years later, she got a crazy idea to write a novel and set out to try to publish it. With over a dozen titles published under various pen names, the rest is history. Her journey has been a blessing, and a dream realized. She looks forward to many more memories to come.
