Reigning beauty queen Samantha Winger is launching her pet project, a music program for kids. All she has to do is follow the pageant's rules - no smoking, drinking, or "cavorting" in public.
That's fine, until D.J. Thomas - God's gift to baseball - throws her a wild pitch. He slams her in an interview, and...more
Everything was going great until the ending hit me. Before I talk about the last part let me just brief you on how I liked the book.
To say, I was really enjoying the story. A Lot. The characters were really developed, the plot was awesome sauce. It was a bit unique for a romance story. A blend of musical and sports. While Samantha has been trying her hand at introducing musical in schools while being the Summer Queen, DJ has been sharpening his pitching skills. The chemis ...more
DJ and Sam have an instant attraction. The reader can feel the sparks between them. Of course trouble ensues, and I’ll let you read all about that, but they eventually pull it back together. I do think the ending was wrapped up a little too quickly and they didn’t really work through their issues but assuming they do that I think they will make a great couple and a happy family.
The Random Thoughts:
Well…if you are looking for a quick light romance then this book won’t steer you wrong. It doesn’t have a lot of depth and it’s very short and pretty “typical” as far as romances go. Though the characters and plot didn’t really stand out to me as anything special the writing was good and easy to read.
This is one of those quick happy ending books to read when you’re stuck or in a lull. My low rating is NOT because I thought it was a bad read, it was really cute. It's just ...more
While well written (no typos or grammar issues), but I didn't get drawn into these characters and I really like stories within the sports subgenre.
This is a relatively short story (read in one setting in just a couple of hours), I felt that some aspects needed better closure (the relationship with his father, as one example).
There's an HEA, which I didn't love for a number of reasons, but most importantly, you never get to read "I love you" between the characters... even ...more
This is the set up for the potential romance between Samantha Winger and DJ Thomas. DJ apologizes and you can feel the attraction right from the beginning. Samantha wants to start a program called Musicall to bring arts back to the s ...more

This is my second experience with Mindy Klasky's novels, my first encounter was with the Jane Madison books, which are light reads. So I was more or less expecting the same lightness and so I wasn't prepared for the hot, very hot scenes that were in the book. But I liked it. I actually was happy to see that the author was capable of such scenes. I more or less am accustomed to romances novels with hot scenes and thought that ...more
On the other hand, I thought their issues were resolved far too quickly and I was ...more
I know there are deadlines when writing a story and you don't want to be cliche about somelines, but two things bothered me. One is common sense is if the project you are working in is that important and the guy you want is as well, could you not have waited one darn month to get everything you wanted all together in one fell swoop? Second I was looking for the title to be the ending line after she gets her program and Daniel was given that perfect pitch for his singing and if still playing b ...more
Not great. Liked Daniel. The Queen was a little wimpy, eleven months without a commitment of her program. Not buying it. And three days after school, when they have band, so that means they do have music, which contradicts her comments.
Did like DJ but not so much his treatment of son.
Mindy is fun, her characters are well planned, her plot of Perfect Pitch was fun, sexy, witty, and as a former sports writer I appreciate the precision of her baseball lingo.
I simply loved every paragraph, from author to author and from the reader perspective... I'm a fan!
Mindy's travels took her through multiple careers, including copyright lawyer and law librarian. Mindy now writes full time. Her books fall in a number of genres -- including traditional fantasy, urban fantasy, and category ...more
