It's been a minute since we visited this baseball team. But Hawk brings us right back in the fold as if we had never left. I sign of good characters in that as soon as I read the names again, I could remember their stories.



This one follows BoRe pitcher Hawk and his road to recovery after surgery. He heads home to his parents ranch, gets caught up int he small town drama and falls head over heels for a woman who has no idea who he is. She just likes him for him. Through in a group o

It's not a five star but really close. I do like the story, characters, and setting very much. It got a little confused at the end but life can become confusing like that....well, maybe not like Hawk's surprised ending...

The HEA epilogue was nice too.

Oh, and required baseball for sports romance was great!!

The latest in the fantastic “The Boys of Summer” series by Heidi McLaughlin, and as much as I found that it took a while to grab my attention, once it had it, there was no putting the book down.
I will admit that so far, I have loved the fact that each of the books in the series reads well as standalone novels and Hawk is no different, it is perfectly placed in the series but boy oh boy does it stand tall in its own right.
Hawk needs no assistance to show you what he is made of, he can manage th

Hawk is book four in the The Boys of Summer series. It can be read as a standalone. It's told in the dual POV of Bellamy and Hawk. This one started off a bit slow for me and it took a little bit for me to get hooked in.
Hawk is a star pitcher that has suffered and injury. He's back in his hometown to rehab and rest. His whole life is baseball and he's struggling with his injury. He gets talked into coaching youth baseball. Hawk's a good guy. Even though he's really good baseballs player, he not

He is realizing that it not always easy to go home again so when he is offered the opportunity to coach the baseball team it seems to be the perfect solution to distract him from the crossroads he finds himself at.

A lot of drama all for some kids to play baseball. Seriously you would thought this was a mafia romance or something.

2 reasons why book went from maybe 4 stars to 2 stars
- the way the author made Annie (not heroine) to be a bad mother at the end. Why the switch? She was perfectly fine at the beginning and the end end she was abandoning her child and being hateful. I hate when authors don’t keep their characters consistent. I think the author just got lazy and could not come up with any other wa

This book was a case of the more I read, the more I like what was happening. Hawk seemed to be floundering at the start, back home, hurt, not really sure of his place in anything any more. But the longer he was there, the more time he spent with Bellamy the more things seemed to come together for him. I think the injury gave him a new perspective on what was important and what wasn't. You can see how he probably won't avoid his home town any longer, but look forward to going back there, to spend ...more

When you finish a book and you can’t stop smiling you know it’s a good one. I’m sad that there aren’t more books in this series and hope it’s only a matter of time. This book is great.

Hawk Sinclair is a cocky baseball player who is hurting. He's harboring a secret that can change his life both professionally and personally. Baseball has been his life and the possibility that he may not be able to pitch a world series game is front and center in his thoughts as his catcher signals for the next pitch. He lines up his pitch and follows through only to have his shoulder finally give way. Surgery and recuperation send him home. Some place he left and pretty much never looked back. ...more

When a major league pitcher has to go back home after several years to recover from a recent surgery, he has to face a lot of animosity and surprises from family and friends, but his love of baseball with a little help from a beautiful woman and her son may be what he needs to find what he has been missing in his life.

It’s nothing more than a façade. I’m in so much pain, I want to quit. But I won’t.

The brilliant Heidi McLaughlin is one of my top go to authors, so just seeing her name has the 5 stars flying, and I've yet to be let down by ANY of her stories to date. Hawk is a star pitcher, who isn't back with his boys when the season starts, as he got an injury which has him on the bench for now. Since he got injured, he's been truly suffering, because baseball is his life, so not having it in his life, even temporarily, is really messing with him. Luckily, he's talked into coaching a littl ...more

I loved this book. I have read her previous work but this one was definitely in my top 5 favorite.

Hawk is on leave due to an injury. He goes to his hometown for rehabilitation and there he has to face many surprises from family and friends alike. However, his love for baseball will help him find what has been missing in his life.

And there's another winner. Hawk by Heidi McLaughlin is book four in her The Boys of Summer Series. There are a few cross-overs, but because every book is about another couple, every book can be read as a stand alone. For best reading experience I recommend to read the books in order. The previous books are Third Base; Home Run and Grand Slam.
This is Bellamy and Hawk's story.

I loved this book. Bell is a mom that will do anything to see her son happy. But she won’t do what the creep of little league baseball propositions. The kids are bullies and so are their parents. It’s sad that Chase and some of the kids are kept out of the games they want to play because of spiteful adults. Chase has a father who isn’t a father at all. He’s a poor excuse of a human being for how he treats his son.
I like that Bellamy doesn’t care and she gives her ex attitude and she tells him th

Bellamy and Hawk's story was interesting to say the least. She is trying to get her son, Chase, on a local baseball team. She is unwilling to be bullied into sleeping with the current coach to do so. Hawk returns home for rehab on his throwing arm and finds things are different in his hometown. He is truly unaware of how bad things really are. To say the rumors abound in this book is an understatement. There have been secrets held for years that come to the surface with him being back in town. I ...more

While home he meets Bellamy a single mom of a 10-yo boy who just wants to play baseball, but due to shady small-town politics he is being black-balled from joining the town’s little league team.

One of my top favorite tropes in romance is sports and single parent, so of course I dropped everything when Hawk released. Bellamy is the single mom of baseball loving Chase. She does everything she can for her son, but there are some lines she’s unwilling to cross for the coach of her son’s baseball team. Bring in Hawk, a professional baseball player. Recovering from an injury, Hawk heads back to his hometown, where he’s offered a position coaching Chase’s team. I loved Bellamy and Hawk togeth

Good lord! Hawk and Bellamy were everything I wanted. I loved every second of this story. Bellamy has to move back home following her divorce. What she didn't bargain for was running into the man she had a crush on.

Bellamy is amazing. She's a fantastic mom to Chase. She loves that boy with all she is. I loved watching her get what she deserves. She's strong, sweet, and exactly what Hawk needed.

Hawk is a great player, but he needs to recoup. He's found a place to do that. There's no place like h

Hawk was such a great character to read. He was sweet and charming and really just a gentleman. Usually the Heroes in sports romance novels can be cocky and super alpha and I love reading this genre for that reason. But it was such a refreshing change to read someone as fantastic as Hawk.

Getting to read another one of Heidi's baseball romances always makes this girl happy. And now that I've been introduced to Bellamy and Hawk, well, I can tell you he's probably one of my top favorite characters.

When an injury forces him to come home, Hawk thought his life was over, until he meets real estate agent Bellamy, and soon comes to find out that maybe Boston isn't where his heart is meant to be.

Bellamy is a single mom whose sole focus is her son. What she doesn't count on, is running in

Injured Hawk returns to his home town while he’s recouping. When he stumbles upon single Mom Bellamy he’s instantly attracted to her. Their chemistry is scorching and even though he’s sexy as sin, her main attraction to him is how he treats her son.
