AJ ‘Rage’ Romero has a temper control issue. He’s famous for losing his shit on the baseball field and regularly getting into fights. In order to become the best catcher who has ever lived, and under the tutelage of Coach Lara he somehow gets control of his temper. His life is just getting on track when he meets Clair, coach’s granddaughter, and her beautiful mother. Addison has made the mistake of falling for a baseball player before, and is dead set on never entering into a relationship with o ...more

I have read ALL of Elizabeth Reyes books. You think you know an author’s style of writing. Uh no, every time I thought everything was going good thinking there wasn’t going to be too much angst. Elizabeth threw a curve ball. I fell in love with the way he connected with Clair, but she is hard to resist. I honestly thought Romero had a short temper, AJ took that cake. Although, Addison did what she needed to protect Clair from anything disturbing Clair's life, she shocked me because knowing AJ’s ...more

My Thoughts:

Have you ever loved the characters that an author creates so much that you wish they were real? This is something I find myself wishing, whenever I read a book by Elizabeth Reyes. I love her characters so much. I wish I could hang out at a gathering with the Moreno's and Romero's. I know it would be a great time full of laughs, incessant teasing, entertaining stories, and lots of fun camaraderie.

Rage was superb! Ms. Reyes has hit another one out of the ballpark! Then again, I've com

Rage is my first book by author Elizabeth Reyes and I know it will not be my last. As soon as I saw the cover and synopsis for this book, I knew it was going to be a good one. I am so glad I decided to check it out.

Rage follows the story of AJ and Addison. AJ has always let his temper get the best of him, but over the years, he’s learned how to reign it in and control it. Everything is going well until AJ’s coach’s granddaughter enters the picture. Who knew that a child held the power to complet

Can’t I just put in one big smiley face emoticon, and call it a review? ‘Cause that would pretty much sum up my feelings about Rage a.k.a. happy, and grinning like a fool.

My excitement for AJ’s story was off the chain, and Elizabeth Reyes managed to deliver once again. Though I expected his temper to be way worse, I found none of his reaction necessarily overkill. He definitely needs to learn to not take things personal on the field, but other than that, I wouldn’t say he was unreasonab

I believe it is safe to say that Elizabeth Reyes knocked this one out of the park.

From the moment AJ met little (immensely adorable) Clair, he won my heart. I just knew that their friendship was going to be one of a kind. It was so adorable how they instantly became each other’s best buddy. Clair would share her baseball stats with AJ and tips before each game and AJ was Clair’s first buddy outside of her family – it was so cute.

This marks the official end for me. Reyes will never write like she did in the early days. I loved the 5th Street series best.

Now, though, there is no story in her books, there is excruciatingly poor development, the characters all look the same and the points of attraction are being repeated ad nauseum. Somewhere along the line someone told Reyes (after Bianca in Gio, it would seem) that all her female protagonists need to have big, doe eyes. All the men have the exact same features

I really enjoyed reading this book by the lovely Elizabeth Reyes. It had a different feel from the other Fate books as it was primarily based away from the Moreno/Romero world in La Jolla and involved a lot of different characters. The story is about AJ Romero and his baseball coach's daughter, Addison.

I really liked the characters in the story, they were both strong characters which created explosive storylines. I really liked the cute relationship between AJ and Clair (Addison's daughter). Th

.Has a book ever given you so much life that you literally shed tears when it ended?

Rage was EVERYTHING. I've always had a soft spot for men that can love a child so unconditionally even though that child isn't biologically theirs, Aj Romero definitely owns a piece of my heart!! This book had so much angst I couldn't handle it at times, I'd have to give my heart a break pretty often so I feel like it took me while to actually read it lol.

I LOVED this book I couldn't put it down.
AJ is just wow Amazing. Talk about an alpha male hot badass.
I don't think AJ can get any hotter. The love he has for his girls. Is unbelievable. It takes a real man to love the way he does.
This is an all time favorite.
I didn't think I could love a book more than I love this one.
This was just perfect.

Mikki _At_A Bookish Escape
The fifth installment of Elizabeth Reyes' Fate Series, Rage, was one of my most anticipated reads of 2015. When I met AJ ''Rage'' Romero for the first time, in the fourth installment of this series, I knew that his story was going to be intense. As a big fan of Elizabeth Reyes, I always set my expectations high. With every new book that she writes, I always fall in love with her a little bit more. She did not disappoint with Rage. She exceeded every single one of my expectations!

I love Rage (AJ) and this book. This is probably my favorite book in this series so far.

Rage is slightly different than the rest of the books in this series in that in really focuses more on the love of a child and his AJ’s ability to form a strong bond with her regardless of what his peers think of him.

AJ (Rage) is a major league baseball player and earned the nickname Rage because of his extreme outbursts and inability to keep himself in check (on or off the field). However, he has le

Elizabeth Reyes is one of my favorite authors and she is one of my few "one-click" authors. Rage only disappointed in one way and that was the fact that it wasn't a story about Brandon and Regina :P .

AJ "Rage" Romero is absolutely adorable. I know that isn't a word that many would use to describe him but his relationship with Clair is exactly that, adore. That relationship makes him adorable. While he does have a temper he is mostly a caring guy who only wants the people he cares about to be hap

I LOVED LOVED LOVED this story! AJ "Rage" Romero has earned his nickname throughout the years. It's easy to set him off, and other teams tend to use this against him to win games.

Another great love story

AJ has a short fuse, hence the reason for his nickname Rage. However, he's a great baseball player, and even more importantly, a fiercely loyal brother and friend. AJ never thought of having a relationship since he is focused on his career and family, but fate stepped in when he meets little Miss Clair, and he falls head over heels for this adorable and intelligent 6 year old girl that happens to be the granddaughter of his mentor and the daughter of Addison, the woman t

I don't even know where to begin because this book is that good. It takes you on a roller coaster of emotions. I guess I will start with AJ. What's not to like he's a baseball player and catcher to boot. I love catchers. AJ has a personality where he doesn't dwell on games and wants the people in his life to be upfront about everything. Sometimes it seems like an impossible goal. Then you have Addison who has been burned before by a baseball player. She doesn't want to risk her or her little gir ...more

I’ve been a huge fan of Elizabeth Reyes since I first read book one in the Moreno brothers series. I fell in love with her stories, writing, and characters. I love Sal he’s my favorite from all of her books, but AJ stole my heart from him. He may be known for angering quickly but he was so so sweet. Also AJ’s relationship with Clair (Addison’s daughter) is perfect! He was so good with her which made things that much easier and more natural when it came to the attraction between Addison and AJ.

I greatly enjoyed this book because I could understand the male character so well. Of Mexican descent, AJ Romero is a baseball star, with a reputation for explosive character. As such, his nickname is Rage. He meets his coach's 7 y/o granddaughter, Clair, and strikes a friendship with her. She's a little genius with a talent for baseball statistics, and soon they are "best buds". When Addison, Clair's mom, comes to a game, tingles and sparks happen in AJ.

I LOVED this book. I was tempted to give 5 stars but I rarely do because I feel like it's overselling. AJ "Rage" Romero is a star baseball catcher who has an unbelievable temper, hence the nickname. He's hot headed, with a short fuse and it doesn't take much to set him off. Addison is trying to move on from a bad relationship all the while keeping the identity of her daughter Clair's father a secret from everyone. Upon meeting Clair, AJ is instantly smitten with the little girl. When he meets Ad ...more
