The Sweet Spot (An All About the Diamond Romance, #1)

Can her baseball fantasy become reality, or will she strike out at love?

Rick Seno is a sexy warrior behind the plate in his catcher’s gear. In control and calling the game for the San Diego Seals. He’d show me the same attention in my bed, if he was more than my imaginary baseball boyfriend.

I’ve worn a Seno jersey to every game since Rick became a big leaguer. It’s silly.

One fan gets the weekend of a lifetime with her favorite baseball player who turns out to be a whole lot more than just a baseball player! This was a sweet, fun, and sexy read.

I loved this book. Just shows when you least expect it, the fantasy can become reality. Taking a chance on life can serve up the greatest reward. One decision can alter your forever. Sherry and Rick's story is sweet, HOT, and unexpected. I want some cookies while watching baseball surrounded by a hot

I completely enjoyed Rick and Sherry's love story. Sherry was extremely independent and used to being in control of her life and emotions until Rick came along and threw her life and emotions up in the air. The side characters were charming and funny but I am quite partial to Joey myself. this book is an amazing tribute that sometimes fantasies do come true when you least expect them.
If you like baseball, this has just enough to keep you into it.
If you like insta-love, this has that.

I am an avid baseball fan. AVID. I love the sport. Reading this book and getting real baseball terms was awesome.
Rick is a catcher. He's sexy, single, and serious.
Sherry has a travel business and a thing for karaoke. She's single, sexy, and a huge baseball fan. More importantly, she's a fan of Rick's team. A big fan. And a big fan of Rick.

So, when the opportunity to meet him after a game is

Baseball is my FAVORITE time of year - yes, time of year - it's more than a season, it's more than a past time - it is my absolute favorite time of year, favorite sport, favorite everything! I love to read about Baseball and I love it when the book is written by a baseball fan! They know the ins and outs, the tricks, the lingo and most of all they understand the sport and can accurately write about it!

This is author Naomi Springthorp's debut novel but it reads like this is more like her 10th or

The sweet spot can mean many different things. In baseball, it's the ball coming over home plate in the perfect spot so the batter can knock it out of the park. In romance, it can be all about the heart. I believe this debut novel gets both of these definitions. Sherry is an ultimate fan. She attends all the games and seeks out all the autographs. But she is respectful toward the players. She catches the eye of Rick whom she still has not gotten an autograph from. But he's not interested in bein ...more

I absolutely loved Rick and Sherri’s story! The depth of their feelings for each other? Naomi brings you into the story and had you feel those same feelings. It was such a fun journey!

*This book was given to me by the author in exchange for an honest review*

Sherry is thirty-five, is the owner of her own travel agency, is single, and independent. She is also a huge baseball fan. Her favorite team is the San Diego Seals and her favorite player is Rick Seno. He’s 26, and is the catcher and Sherry has many fantasies of them sharing her bed. One night, while trying to get an autograph, she catches his attention and they go out for dinner and spend the night together. She thinks it

Welcome to the best baseball romance I have ever read. This book is what baseball fans fantasize about. A baseball player. A baseball fan. An uncommon romance. This book has so much passion I couldn't put it down. This author definitely knows her baseball. Reading her words I felt like I was at a game cheering on the team and also nervous when it came close. I loved it! This is the ultimate sports romance. I just loved Rick & Sherry. Their instant connection was totally believable. Talk about st ...more

I said it once and I’ll say it again, “Love is a powerful thing!” Most of us are used to books that has us keeping us in the chase and we feel the need to want to know more about the characters and more of their story. We never get their story afterward, but this one right here let us in their lives and witness the ups and downs. This book right here is the opposite. You’ll fall in love quickly with Sherry and Rick. A travel agent who has been on her own for a while and a famous baseball player ...more

Found me a new author to stalk...I mean follow, thanks to this sexy and fun sports romance that made me drool a bit, sigh a lot, and smile big and wide!

I am loving this author's writing so far! Fun, realistic feeling, oh so tempting and just enjoyable, I devoured this romance with gusto and am now needing MORE. I don't know how I missed Miss Springthorpe's books before, but now that she is on my radar you can bet your last dollar I am going to do my very best to

Sweet and sassy. A romance that sweeps you away.

The characters are sweet and sassy. The laughs are balanced well with the emotions. I loved getting to know them. Passionate and steamy, I couldn’t help but swept away in it. The details of the base were fun and factual but didn’t pull focus from the story. An all around great read of your looking for laughs and heart with a nice side of baseball.

3.5 Stars.

This is your typical insta-love/lust romance.

If you love baseball then you’ll feel right at home with all the plays and terminology.

The steam factor was high for sure. Major sexual chemistry between the main characters.

It was a bit too much in some places but that might be just my preference.

This story did give great paths to future characters for sure but where squanders.

It was a nice storyline that gives promise to future series titles.

Every girl has that fantasy man. The one they dream about (in great detail), but know that it will always be just a dream. Rick Seno is that man for Sherry - until he isn't a fantasy anymore. Until it becomes real. The attraction between them is instant and hot. But can they work past trust issues and baseball skanks in their journey to find forever. Note - this book has a cliffhanger and is the first book in a series.

What happens when you meet your fantasy baseball player, not only meet but you get a chance at a one night stand with the sexy catcher? Sherry went for it, it after all was a one nighter--well when Rick comes back for more it's a melt your heart insta love...but not a smooth path-Sherry is and independent woman, use to doing things for herself and Rick's high handedness make her question blindly following but man is he good in bed! Funny, great characters and emotional feels, a good read!

I read this book fast . I am a big baseball fan. Sherry and Rick make a good couple . Sherry must have an awesome singing voice to do karaoke. I see that fantasies can come true . I like the songs in the book. Rick is good off and on the field . His family liked sherry . Sherry has a good way at looking at things .

Could not put this book down! The story of Sherry and Rick is a sweet, passionate account where love can conquer all. Or can it??? Springthorpe does a great job of bringing her characters to life and embraces a world where anything is possible, even your fantasy boyfriend!!! I can’t wait to read the rest of this series!

I'm hooked, such a great way to fall in love with sports romance, with a lot of sizzle. Plus music is my life and Naomi has a playlist for her books, the best idea ever. I felt like I knew the characters in this book and am so happy I get more with the next book. Even if you aren't a baseball fan I think you will still love this book.

This book starts out hot and just gets hotter! I love baseball and have lusted over a few players so this was definitely a fun read for me. It was full of hot baseball players, humor and hot steamy love scenes. This is my first time to read this author and she now has a new fan!

This is a great sports romance story. Two people finding what or who they are looking for in life very quickly. Can this romance survive anything? We will see?
