I knew something was wrong the second she walked in the door tonight; I just couldn’t put my finger on what it was.
Same hair color.
Same legs.
Same face.
Except…I look harder.
At the small dimple beneath her lip that wasn’t there the last time we went out. And her laugh—that laugh isn’t as loud.
This isn’t the girl I’ve gone out with the past few weeks.
It’s her twin sister,

Short, cute, and ohmigod I want more

We’re introduced to Amelia, posing as her twin Lucy. She’s filling in for Lucy on a date with Dash, a star college baseball player. A guy so opposite of what Amelia goes for, so how easy will it be to pull off a fake date with your identical twins guy, or one of her many guys, while your sister is off on another date...

Dash, doesn’t usually go for the player girls like Lucy, but hey a quick score may be just what he needs, right... that is until he notices

Switch Hitter is a short novella with a sweet and adorable hero and a quirky heroine. The twin swap plot is what got my attention and I thought it was very well written, it didn't come off as too dramatic and instead had just enough angst to keep me intrigued while still keeping the story pretty light.

I actually didn't realize that this was the novella from the Team Player anthology (my own stupid fault) so the ending seemed very abrupt to me and left me a

“I’m going to date the shit out of you.”

This was such a cute and satisfying novella that I devoured in one smile filled reading.

The classic twin switch tale gets a Sara Ney twist. When her twin double books herself for a date, who better to step into her shoes than her twin, Amelia. Lucy is the fun loving free spirit and Amelia is the serious one of the two. So when Amelia attends a date with the sexy Dante who immediately begins to note the

Saw this was releasing on its own, so I went back and read this in my copy of the Team Player anthology.

This was a good twin swap read. Twin sister Lucy & Amelia swap for one night when Lucy has double booked herself on dates. Heaven forbid she cancels one. Yeah that’s what Amelia said too. No bone though.

Anyway Amelia reluctantly agrees to go out with Dash, but ends up really liking him. You’ll have to read it to find out what else happens. It’s yummy. This story was cute and fun. In one scene
A short novella, a great twin swap storyline between two sisters and a hot jock!

Fab little read, and if you are a fan of Ney's Douchebag series then you can't go wrong with this :)

It's the baseball player trap...

I know it's kind of deceitful and wrong but I kind of love stories when twins switch places. This was a cute story that did the switcheroo genre justice. There's a good twin and a naughty twin, a hero too smart and a connection that meant it was easier to forgive the tricksters.

Switch Hitter was short but sweet and I enjoyed it. The characters were interesting, the storyline moved well and the sizzling tension jumped off the pages. Definitely worth the $1.00.

I really liked the introduction story to the new series by Sara Ney. I totally rammed my way through her "How to date a douchebag" series in a matter of days so I was excited about this new series.

Amelia is a great girl, I would describe her as a "real" girl next door, she's simple, honest, loyal, wants to do something meaningful with her life and she can't get any more perfect apart from the fact that she has a twin sister who is the exact opposite of her. Amelia always puts her sister above al
I started this in the Team Player anthology and had to DNF....
I so wanted to like this because I liked Amelia and Dante BUT I couldn't get past he was still dating and has made out with the heroines twin sister... could have been great for me but that's not my bag

Loved this one as well. This is the novella that introduces the Jock Hard series. Is a spin on the old twin switcheroo. Dante was so sexy with his Latino swagger and Amelia was also super cute. It's a shame it was so short. I want more of this couple!

This is a super fast read. And the audiobook is perfection narrated by Erin Mallon and my favorite Jacob Morgan/Zachary Webber! <3
3.5 Stars

This was a fun and sexy little start to Ney's new college themed series.

In Switch Hitter twins Lucy and Amelia trade places when Lucy frivolously double books herself on one too many Friday night dates. As a solution, instead on simply cancelling one of the dates like a normal person, Lucy chooses to beg her more sensible and less flighty twin sister Amelia to pretend to be her for the night on a date with college baseball star Dante.

Although the old twin switcheroo has worked for the

Had fun with this one and the whole twin switch deal.

It was a quick, easy listen (2 hours and 29 minutes) and I enjoyed the performances of Erin Mallon and Jacob Morgan as Amelia (aka 'Lucy'... ahem...) and Dante.

And that's all I'm gonna say about that... *grin*)
Luvd this so much.

This book is so funny I luvd it. If this is what I have to look forward to with twin girls God help me haha. This story is just great. I luvd how different Lucy and Amelia are. They are like chalk and cheese. I do like that Lucy can push Amelia out of her comfort zone even though Amelia tries so hard to say no it doesn't work. They are great sisters and I luv the relationship they have.

Dante is hot like really hot. What makes him even better is that he isn't your normal baseba

This was cute but everything happened so fast. If this novella would’ve been longer, I think would’ve enjoyed it more.

A fun and engaging novella and I was here for the twin swap. Predictably, I wanted more.

Switch Hitter was originally included in Team Player: A Sports Romance Anthology.

I’m giving a virtual high five to Sara Ney for this adorkable rom-com novella. Ever since The Parent Trap, I’ve had a soft spot for twin switcheroo stories.

Lucy and Amelia couldn’t be more different, and that’s part of what makes this story work so well. As a favor, “boring” (read: quiet and caring) Amelia agrees to pretend to be her vivacious (read: slutty and self-centered) sister, Lucy, while on a date with Lucy

"For real. We had zero chemistry," she rambles on. "Like, none."

Just like the two main characters.

Lucy has double booked herself on Friday night. She was supposed to go clubbing with Hudson but forgot that she had already made plans with Dash. So what does she do? Cancel on one of them and apologize like a decent human being? No. She asks her twin sister, Amelia, to go on the date for her and act as her. Easy right? Well, it was, until Amelia starts developing feelings for Dash.

“Know what I’m going to do?”
“I’m going to date the shit out of you.”

Oh my! This was SO DAMN CUTE! Amelia and Dash are the perfect couple to start off a brand new series from the AMAZING Sara Ney! I would follow this woman anywhere. Her writing is so smart, witty, charming, and hilarious. I couldn’t get enough!

SWITCH HITTER is a FUN, feel good romance that was included in the Team Player Anthology a while back. NOW, stands on its own with a HOT new cover! It’s even better the second go-rou
3.5 stars!

This is a really quick, cute read. A fun and flirty romance that is no-nonsense, low-angst, sweet and sexy. Originally published in the Team Player Anthology , it’s now available for purchase as a standalone, leading in to Sara Ney’s upcoming Jock Hard series, and I really enjoyed it.

Amelia and Lucy are twins. Almost identical in looks, they couldn’t be more different, with Amelia the shy, quieter, more studious of the two, and Lucy the wild, fun-loving party girl. When Lucy double-bo

That was such a quick, fun and adorable read! I wasn’t able to read this when it was originally included in the Team Player Anthology, but I’m so glad I had the chance to before the first book in the Jock Hard series released. Switch Hitter is definitely the perfect introduction to Sara Ney’s upcoming series that I’m pretty sure will also make us swoon to no end, get our panties in a twist, and drive us nuts and wild, just as much as her Douchebag series did, if not more.

Quick, sexy and fun, my first book by Sara Ney and it won't be my last. It could've been longer and sure it was a little insta-everything, but despite all this I still thoroughly enjoyed it!

Plus, all that Spanish had me fanning myself multiple times. I kinda want a Dante of my own. 🤤

I wasn’t expecting it to be so short but Switch Hitter was a cute, fun and sexy read and a good start to new series.

Look forward to reading more from Sara Ney.

Well, this was a very enjoyable reading, even though that it was a very short story...
I liked the characters very much, nope scratch that, i liked Lucy but not too much, but Dante and Amelia were great... Especially Amelia!!!
Dante seemed a little bit flat for me, even though that i liked mostly of his character...

Well, Dante had a date with Lucy...
Lucy was a perplexed character, a little bit swallow i can say and she was like dating... a lot... with man

“Eres mio. Mio. You’re mine.”


Sometimes you crave a read that you can easily inhale in one sitting. A romance that cuts to the chase and hits the ‘fast forward’ button. For a short story, Switch Hitter by Sara Ney packs a punch. I was CONSUMED with this romance!

Dash and Amelia are adorable together. Holy Latin GOD! I could do nothing but swoon from the baseball hero who’s as huge-hearted as he is hot. The hero and heroines’ delicious sexual tension kept me glued to the pages. Swi

This is very short and very cute. The cover copy is perfectly adequate to give you all you need to know so I'll stick with "it was worth the time and money" and that it delivered on its promise. The only dragging this to four stars is that the secret drags on a bit. Amelia knows her twin isn't into him and she really wants to get to know him better so persisting with the deception didn't really make sense. She's supposedly smart, so I thought it odd that she didn't abandon the "plot" sooner.

Switch Hitter by Sara Ney was your fast paced feel good novella. It was fun, cute, and adorably sweet. Ney introduces readers to Lucy and Amelia, who are identical twins and so when Lucy asked Amelia to pretend to be her on a date, Amelia reluctantly agrees. What Amelia never expected was Dash to be a total gentleman and sweet guy. He wasn’t your stereotypical jock at all. So what happens when Amelia begins to like Dash but he thinks she is

This was a novella about Amelia and Dash. When Amelia's twin sister double books herself on dates she asks her twin to go in her place to meet Dash. Amelia ends up liking him but walks away at the end. When her twin asks her to meet Dash to break up with him she once again goes along with it though she doesn't want to She's stunned to see Dash after she'd supposedly broken up with him. By then Dash had figured out the secret and called her on her shit. They make up, like each other

Twins. One super outgoing. One super sweet. They decide to do the whole switcheroo on Baseball player Dash and find out he likes the "not supposed to be there" twin more. This was an adorable little story. I kinda wished it was a full length novel because I fell in love with all three characters.

**Part of the anthology, Team Player.**
A fab little treat between meals.

Earlier this year I binged on Sara Ney. I loved the humour, the wit, the chemistry and the smut but once I'd read them all I struggled to get all of that from anyone else. This is a novella, complete story and an intro to a new series. For me it was a reminder of what I've been craving. I'm so ready for her new series, I'll be stalking her feeds ready to jump on that.

Just the thing if you're in the mood for witty, warm feels and hot smut.

Sweet couple but novellas are so tough...

Cute book but nothing to write home about. The heroine got on my nerves some and her sister was a flighty twat bag, IMO. She didn't deserve such a nice sister (who also basically lets her sister walk all over her - just tell her you won't pretend to be her, Amelia! Problem solved. Your sister is 21 and needs to act like it). #soannoyed

Dash (again with the dumb nickname - he's not an Incredible) whose real name is Dante (why not use that, it's a great name) is a decent hero and probably deserves
