My life was what country songs are made of: my Granny died, my girlfriend broke up with me, I knocked up her cousin, and I was inducted into the Major League Hall of Fame. Yup…just like every country song I’ve ever heard.
But let me start over…
My name is Gage Nix. That’s all you need to know.
Actually, there’s a lot more to Gage than meets the eye. My name’s Katie Crisp, and I had a front row seat and the inside scoop.
In a moment of grief and desperation, I allowed the Home Run King to…well, hit a home run on my diamond. He not only knocked it out of the park, but he also knocked me up.
Raising two babies—the one I was carrying, and Gage—wasn’t what I signed up for. But he gave me no choice. I only wish I hadn’t waited until the end of the season to see that he was my MVP.
Oh, and the only hall of fame he’s ever been inducted into is his own.
MY THOUGHTS AFTER READING...
Oh man! This book is probably the funniest I've read in a very long time... I didn't have any idea who the Author was (or...Authors were) and as it turned out, it's from the writing tandem of Ms. Leddy Harper and Ms. Stephie Walls.
Lemme' start by saying I love baseball! I'm a San Francisco Giants fan... I read updates about the players, latest news about the organization, etc... Baseball season is upon us, so this book is timely and relatable.
Home Run King is the story about Gage Nix—a hotshot baseball player, and Katie Crisp—local girl & nurse, finding comfort in eachother's arms while dealing with the loss of a loved-one... Each had their own shit to deal with... One has abandonment issues, and the other has trust issues... and not only that, they dont even like each other that much! So you can only imagine how these two would raise a baby together?? Plus throw-in the jealous, spiteful ex, their shady past and their own anxieties... it was definitely bound to be a shitstorm...lol
But... eventhough it may seem angsty and dramatic, it was far from it. Seriously you guys, this is the funniest book I've read this year, and in a long time... Sure, I've read books that were funny as well but this one takes the cake—so far...lol Their banters, the dialogues, the sarcasm, their barbs... even the confrontations were funny.
If ya'll are looking for something to get you out of your funk, or something to simply just cheer you up, this is the book to pick-up next!
