This time, I didn’t even blush at the language.

I’m having a bit of a bad run with psycho chicken Mum’s and Cleat Catcher had one of the best. She’s not as nasty as some of the others but she is in her own head when it comes to thinking she knows what’s best for her child. Bringing in ex-boyfriends as a nice surprise was tasteless and crass. Considering Mum was of the snooty, snotty variety it was definitely her thinking that her choice of man was better that her daughters. Now, see my problem wi

It’s LIVE, the story you’ve been waiting to read by Sloane Howell and only Sloane Howell. Oh wait, there’s an unknown author too. That makes sense, because I kept thinking to myself, “Wow, I don’t think I’ve read anything as incredible as this male pov, but what in the ever-loving hell was he doing on these female chapters? It’s like it’s not even him.”

I knew there was a reason for it, seeing as Sloane is the author equivalent of Zeus, Thor, Leonidas, Batman, Maximus Decimus Meridius, JFK, Dumbl

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. If that's true, then Sloane Howell is the greatest flatterer that ever lived. His flattery is legendary, truly. However, despite his pathetic efforts at writing with the same wit and grace I possess, he falls flat yet again.
If I were to describe his chapters, I would say thusly: They are akin to that time you went to the doctor with that ailment, and the doctor treated you, and you thought his advice seemed sound, but on the way out, you saw

Braden Bradford is the star catcher and team captain for the Ravens baseball team. For most of his life, all Braden has known is baseball, but with a subpar season, getting traded is becoming a worry. To further complicate his future, Braden has to contend with a possible game changer.

Nikki Graves is a die-hard baseball fan and cleat chaser. Despite being raised by upper crust parents, Nikki has a foul mouth and aspires to be a magazine editor. W

A book that makes me smile, and makes my heart swell, and makes my day after I’ve read the last word, in my opinion, is a good book. No, scratch that. A great book.

People often think that after the proverbial "I love yous" were exchanged that it is an automatic happily ever after. But what happens during the relationship?

This! This! I miss this kind of read. The hows of being in a relationship. The struggles, the kinks you have to go through, and everything that will make you think no matter wha

Braden was so lovable in Cleat Chaser, I was excited he was going to get his own book! I ended up really liking Nikki too. I didn't particularly feel one way or the other about her after Cleat Chaser but she definitely won me over with this book.
You get the mushroom stamp of approval there, Louis. Apologies.
Braden was still just as lovable as the first time we met him, though him and Nikki experienced a few ups and downs throughout this book. Braden was a leader on his team and we got to s

So it’s been about five months since Cleat Chaser and The Great Bucket List it inspired. In all that time Prince has died, Britain has left the building and Hodor happened. However, The Great Bucket List remains woefully uncompleted. Donald Trump still scares me … do y’all think his peen is orange too? Also, do you think Malia suffers from permanent Cheeto-coochy as a result?

I am probably the only person who went batshit crazy when I first found out Celia and Sloane were writing this book. I could not contain my happiness and when I received this ARC, I was so excited to go back into the world of Easton, Kyrie, Nikki, Braden and Kasey. Cleat Catcher focuses on Nikki and Braden's relationship. We get to delve deeper into their relationship and also get to know them better.

Does anybody here remember the song, Paradise by the dashboard light by Meatloaf? Anyone? Please? Ahhh come on, the song is only 38 years old!
Never mind. The song is about a boy and a girl, barely 17 and they have parked the car, he is ready to go all the way, and he is feeling lucky.
When Meatloaf recorded the song, he recorded a sequence of a baseball game, and put that in the middle of the song, as a metaphor for the sex part.
In the song, the boy did not get lucky, because the girl stopped h

Have you ever found an author who just gets it? Well look no further for two of them. When these two get together magic happens, I swear. Erotic romances "Golden Couple" have done it again. This is the follow up to Cleat Chaser and it did not disappoint. At times, it was so freaking funny, then full of angst. Cleat Catcher tells the story of Braden and Nikki. We met them originally as the best friends of Easton and Kyrie. While this is a standalone, you should totally read Cleat Chaser first. I ...more

3.5 Wow that was...ummm steamy stars!

Just a short sports romance with Nik snd Braden from Cleat Chaser. They met first and have been together awhile so their relationship felt much more developed than Easton and Kyrie's. Same crazy heat with some over the top intimacy and humor...I admit I blushed often here! I really could have read 100 more pages of this crazy duo as they were quite entertaining! So not much angst or deep stor but still worth the trip to this ballpark!

I freakin love these guys and everything they write! If you haven't already read Cleat Chaser - the first in the duet, then drop what you're doing, and get onto it! Trust me, you will love it!

We first met Braden and Nikki in Cleat Chaser, and their story continues in this hilariously sexy follow-up.
Braden is the catcher for the Ravens. He leads his team, putting their needs ahead of his own - like any good leader does. His team-mates look up to him, and hold the highest respect for him.

I'm beginning to think that this is the norm when it comes to Celia and Sloane. If it is?!... I'm sold! I will read anything these two collaborate on! The laughs and hot, steamy sex scenes continued on in Cleat Catcher.

This time it is Nikki and Braden's turn. Nikki was a self-proclaimed cleat chaser! Growing up with the love for the game, it was no wonder she developed a fondness for the men who wear those tight, asset enhancing baseba

When you mix Celia Aaron with Sloane Howell, you know you're going to get a funny read with lots of banter and sex scenes a plenty. Cleat Catcher doesn't dissapoint!
Nikki and Braden are fantastic characters with unique personalities. The story begins with their six month anniversary where nothing quite goes to plan. The plot centres around both Nikki's family and Braden's career, our beloved couple being thrown curveballs.

I floved, floved, gloved this book. It had it all. I chewed the nails a little, I was cross a little, I was excited a LOT and I laughed more than I have laughed in a long while. It never ceases to amaze me, that I just get more and more entertainment out of the books from these authors. Their incredible ability to spin the most enjoyable tale is impressive. This book was really worth the read and I just hate that each one has to have an ending. I could read these authors' words for eternity.

I was looking forward to this book as I truly enjoyed reading Cleat Chaser where we were first introduced to Braden and Nikki. I loved Cleat Chaser so I had high expectations for Cleat Catcher and it surpassed all expectations.

Of course, this book is hilarious as expected since Sloane Howell and Celia Aaron most definitely know how to deliver the laughs. There are several pop culture references that had me laughing out loud, I even h

Life will always throw you curves, just keep fouling them off. The right pitch will come, but when it does, be prepared to run the bases. ~Rick Maksian

As a Virginia gal without a baseball team, I adopted the Baltimore 'Os' Orioles as a child and even went to the legendary Cal Ripken's last game. I just love a good baseball game. The fans are engaged and intently watching the players. Adrenaline courses through my veins as I pray that my team wins. It’s a heady feeling and one where I can’t help

I am such a sap. When I finished reading this I just sat there with a cheesy grin on my face because of the way it ended :)

This was hot, sexy,and funny, but it had some depth to it. Braden and Nikki have some serious issues to work through because Braden's career is not where he thinks it is and in typical male fashion he shuts everyone down. I liked that he wasn't a jerk about it. He's one of those that ignores what's happening to him to make sure everyone else is happy. When he and Nikki final
