I enjoyed how Sterling wrote these characters-- 21 yr old's who might think they know a thing or two about relationships but have so much to learn. I love that Sterling did not over- romanticize 21 yr old college relationships. She made it fun. She made ...more

This series will give you old school Perfect Game feels with the drama, angst, humor and an amazing love story thrown in. The Ninth Inning ...more
J Sterling is one of my OG authors that I will always come back to. She started my love for sports romance and when I saw she was going back to baseball, I could not be more excited. And she did not let her readers down!!
The Ninth Inning starts off her newest series, The Boys of Baseball and she smacks this one out of the park (yes, I had to be corny and throw in some baseball analogies). LOL
The Ninth Inning introduces us to the few fellows who these books will be about, but this book ...more
Cole Anders is running out of time, he needs in on the baseball draft, and he needs to get serious. Since freshman year, he's always had the solid, constant, non girlfriend but steady friend and hookup in Christina. The potential of their relationship was always there, but Cole, never wanted a relationship. What worked before doesn't work anymore. He's separated himself from her for while, focusing on baseball, so he ...more
This book took me by such a surprise, it was heartbreaking at times because you could almost be there in the moments with Cole and Christina, they are that relatable and then they are moments where, for me, she takes all you think you know about college jocks and blows your mind. This is ...more
Seriously, go read this book! Go fall in love with Cole Anders and Christina Travers, because
trust me when I say, there will be lots of falling going on when youre devouring this book. I cant wait for The Boys of Baseball #2!! ...more
When The Ninth Inning turned up on my Kindle, there was a squee of joy that emerged from my mouth
And then I started singing to the tune of Justin Timberlake "she's bringing baseball back".
I was obsessed with Jack F'n Carter for the longest time, and finding out we were heading back to Fullton State had me so, so, excited. Seeing the next generation come through is going to be so much fun.
Cole and Christina's second chance story has shade of Jack and his Kitten ...more
Steam, all the feels and just the right amount of angst! Get ready, because The Ninth Inning is Big League! Im so incredibly happy that J. Sterling brought baseball back. Sports romances are one of my favorite genres and I adored her Perfect Game series, so its no surprise how much I loved this one too. It includes everything I crave in a sports romance and it kept me up all night. I just couldnt put it ...more
Its been a hot minute since Ive read a J. Sterling book. I loved her Fisher Brothers Series, so I was all about this. J has always had a perfect balance of angst and humor that interlace throughout her books effortlessly and this book is no different. I loved Cole and Christina their connection was evident and intrinsic. From the opening chapter you could feel it burst from the pages and set the tone for a beautifully written romance.
Why havent you guys ever gotten together? ...more
Cole Anders baseball God at Fulton State. His dream is to make it to the MLB and hes close. But he really needs to buckle down and have no distractions. So he lets the one ...more
What's better than baseball? Seriously, the baseball trope is at the top of my list when it comes to a sports romance. I am almost positive I have not read anything from this author, but I was shocked by how much this author based the book around the actual sport, most authors don't do that. I was also glad to see that this author didn't base her characters off fantasy. Don't get me wrong, the Hero was an alpha when it came down to it, but he actually fit the profile of a real human.
Sports romances are some of my favorite genres, and The Ninth Inning was definitely a grand slam, and yeah I went there *wink* It gave me all the things I crave in a sports romance, and especially one of my fave sports, baseball. Cole and Christinas story hooked me right from the start, I was consumed and I couldnt read fast enough.
Cole without question stole my heart. He has one goal in life, and thats to play baseball professionally. Hes convinced that girls are a distraction and that ...more
The storyline is about a up and coming baseball player in college whose main focus is baseball. Nothing is going to derail Cole and his beeline for the big leagues. There has been a girl Christina, who he has hooked up with off an on over the last few years and he feels a connection with but has ...more
Cole and Christina are the epitome of college and relationship dramas and miscommunications. Cole is focused on baseball and doesnt think there is room in his life for more. Christina is done being pushed aside when it comes to Coles focus on baseball. One-night changes the course of things for both of them, and Cole decides that he ...more
Back to Fullton State, 3 stars
I enjoy Sterlings stories. I love baseball, I grew up on a softball diamond and when I wasnt there, I was at the baseball diamond with my brother. So, I fully expected to love The Ninth Inning, but I didnt. I didnt fall into the story what so ever. I dont know if it was me and whats currently going on in the world just putting me into a funk or if it was the book itself. What I can tell you is I will try and read it again sometime and ...more
Cole and Christina had a rocky relationship. Cole thought the only thing he should focus on was his baseball career. Not thinking having Christina by his side would make him better, he thought she would be a distraction from what was most important. But his play suffered and it took him a while ...more
I loved this book!! I love sports college romances and this one was so good!!!
Cole and Christina have history and when Cole, after years of back and forth with Christina and then telling her to pretty much disappear from his life (which she did) Cole finally realises he wants her. He wants her good and proper, in the daylight, on dates, holding hands and as his girlfriend. There are ...more
His head shook like I couldnt be more wrong. Everythings changed. Ive been living my life for one thing for so long that I didnt know any other way to live.
Cole has to figure out if he can be in a ...more
This is Cole and Christina's story.
Cole needs to be drafted, bad. He never wanted a serious relationship. Christina is his , hmm lets call it distraction , nothing serious ; but now he doesn't need distractions either.
Christina has enough of being pushed aside by Cole. She's moving on. But easier said then done.
The Ninth Inning is a fast paced read, excellent written and made me read it in one sitting, cover to cover. ...more
Let me start by saying this series is going to blow fans away. **spoiler free review** Baseball is still the number sport at Fulton state. I loved Cole Anders. He swooned me though out the whole book. I loved some much about him. He wasn't overly cocky, just cocky enough. He knew he was good, BUT he still had areas that he knew he needed to improve...THEN all of a sudden he realized just where he needed to get better, and wasn't only in Baseball
Christina is ...more
