I received ALL OF ME from Edelweiss for the purpose of an honest review.

*Review is cross-posted to*

I have to start off with I love Jennifer Bernard's first series, the Bachelor Firemen of San Gabriel. So I knew this book would or should leave me smiling. However I think with All Of Me, Jennifer Bernard touched on some tough subjects, namely trust. Not just trust in others but trusting ourselves. Trust lies at the base of any love, so it's nice to see it touched on with

All of Me was my second ever read from Jennifer Bernard. I’ve read one of her Firemen books, and liked it, but when I saw that she had ventured into the sports genre my heart literally skipped a beat!

Most individuals who know me, are well aware that I love my jock reads!

All of Me posed huge questions of proving yourself, rising against opposition, and being able to have faith in trust in someone.

Baseball ... yes, it's that time of the year again ... and, what better way to start off the season than with the new series being released by Jennifer Bernard. After firefighters, is there any place else to go? And, boy, did she do a great job in jumping from the fire into the bullpen with "All of Me".
Caleb was just so endearing. Loving, kind and oh so very hot. His love for his siblings and his mistrust for

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I must say that after reading all of Jennifer Bernard's Firemen books, while I was waiting for her Baseball books with anticipation, I honestly think I thought we would be getting the same books in different uniforms. I was wrong. The only resemblances I found were loveable characters and a well written book.
I absolutely adore the Kilby Catfish baseball team from Texas! They are funny, cute and all around entertaining. I also like the fact that

Meh. Too many over-the-top drama for my taste: sex scandal, con-artist father, slanders... It just went on and on. The things that Sadie's ex did was so juvenile it robbed out any chance of me enjoying the romance.

I also thought Sadie being a little too 'weak' when it came to dealing with her ex. If she wanted to be a lawyer and didn't have the nerves of steel or the wits when facing his ex, she would've been eaten in courts. Then again, probably because these characters were young? I

Caleb Hart plays for the Kilby Catfish in the minor leagues, hoping to find a spot in the major's. He has real talent, but lately he has been striking out on his throws, and not just in the game. But has an altercation with sexy and feisty Sadie Merrit. Caleb will have to prove himself to Sadie and the mayor not just for himself but for the whole team. Sadie Merrit, after the disaster with her ex boyfriend, is still recovering. T

I love sports romances, so I was all over this one when we were invited to participate in the tour. I'm more of a football and soccer girl, and I haven't read too many baseball-centric stories, but I get it.

5 Pitcher Perfect Stars!!!

The bases are loaded, and I think All of Me is a home-run hit! Jennifer Bernard’s first book in her new Love Between the Bases series proved to be everything I wanted and more in a sports romance. If you’re into baseball romance, small-town romance, and likable characters who persevere through whatever obstacles life throws at them, then consider reading All of Me.

Baseball pitcher Caleb Hart is currently straddling the line

Jennifer Bernard has done it again!!! Her new series, Love Between the Bases, hits a home run with the first book in the series All of Me. Bernard known for her ability to blend humor, love, and adventure does not disappoint with Caleb and Sadie’s journey from weary almost adversaries to struggling with their growing feelings and finally to the happily ever after these two deserve. All of Me seamlessly mixes the backdrop of Minor League baseball, small town Texas, and of course love. Caleb is a ...more

I very much enjoyed this book. This new series is about baseball players on the Kilby Catfish. They are known for their crazy parties and antics that have pushed the folks of Kilby too far. So far, that they've started a petition to have the Catfish removed. Sadie, an aide to the mayor, serves the team with the petition and a proposal to work together to fix the team's image. This is how she runs into Caleb (literally). The passion

Sie versucht, ihm aus dem Weg zu gehen, doch das ist nicht so einfach, hat sie doch beruflich mit ihm zu tun. Bald knistert es zwischen ihnen, doch Sadie ist immer noch sehr vorsichtig, da sie ihre letzte Männerbekanntschaft geprägt hat...

Leave it to Jennifer to top her sexy firemen with even sexier baseball players.

Sadie Merritt has survived a huge scandal involving her ex, barely. She has one friend left in town, and her job in the mayor’s office that she knows she’s way overqualified for but is just glad to have, and hopes to hang on to it. She has a mother constantly telling her she can do better and that men are nothing but trouble. To say her trust in men or anyone, much less herself is waning is an understatement. Running

All Of Me is exactly what I’ve come to expect from Jennifer Bernard. We get likeable, and most of all real characters, plenty of sexy times and enough drama to keep it entertaining. It might not be about smoking hot firemen, but those tight baseball uniforms do make my heart beat faster.

Caleb’s baseball career is in a bit of a slump. Though it’s clear for everyone to see, he’s just putting too much pressure on himself. His family situation is a mess, and he needs his career to go well,

This is the first in a new baseball romance series, and I will be making sure that I keep an eye out for future stories. There are plenty in the team that will provide interesting plots!

There is a good mix of sport, of humour, of angst and romance. The chemistry between the lead characters is sizzling, in spite of Sadie's nervousness. She has good reason to be wary after a horrible situation that once again threatens her hap

I've been a fan of Ms. Bernard when I was introduced to her Bachelor Firemen series a few years back. Now she's come out with a brand new series, and I was more than happy to be given a copy from the publisher to review.

In her typical style, Bernard's newest novel sizzles. The tension is off the charts! Characters to love and some that aren't there to love. I love Caleb's devotion to his family, and their back story really grabbed hold of my heart. He's struggling and there are moments he can b

Jennifer Bernard is off to a fabulous start with this new series. Not only can she scorch the pages with fireman but she can hit it out of the park with baseball players as well. Her writing style is unique and she makes her characters relatable. They come alive through her words. I was immediately drawn into the story and the differences between Caleb and Sadie.

Great start to a new series from this author. Set around a minor league ball club in small town Kilby it has a great bunch of characters that I am sure will be reoccurring in upcoming books. Caleb and Sadie have a fun, sweet, and oh so sexy chemistry between them and you can definitely feel it throughout the story. While parts of the story are a bit outrageous and silly at times, overall it's a very good read. I definitely recommend it.

Judging a Book by it's Cover --
Nice colors. But I'm not a big fanor the overall design. Both models on the cover poorly depict the characters as described in the book. The male model looks older and "softer", at the same time the pose makes him look like he's one of those grabby PitA guys who think they're cute but they're not. Sadie also looks older and way more "buttoned up" than described. The model's got that look like "Oh yeah?

When mayor’s assistant Sadie delivers a petition to oust the Kilby Catfish AAA farm team, she meets Caleb, star pitching prospect and just one of its bad boys. There’s no denying the attraction between them, and when they’re paired up to work on a joint charity PR campaign, the attraction heats up. Each has secrets, ones that will either make or break any chance at a relationship between them, and they must come clean.

All of Me is the first novel in the Love Between the Bases sports romance series and is also my very first read from author Jennifer Bernard. This was an enjoyable story, one that was lighthearted but also had both lead characters--Caleb Hart and Sadie Merritt--dealing with some serious issues.
