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

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 ...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.

Hawk was born to play baseball and when he left his family’s ranch in Richfield, Montana, to

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.
Bellamy is a single mom of a 7 year old and lives in a small town. She works as real estate agent. Her heart is breaking

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

WOW!!!! What an amazing 10 star story this was. I might have shed a tear or two. I have read pretty much all of this authors amazing stories but Hawk surpassed my already high expectations.

Hawk is on leave due to an injury. He goes to his home town for rehabilitation and there he meets Bellamy. Bellamy is starting over with her son. She wants him to play baseball but the town is corrupt. Hawk will step in more ways then one.

I devoured this amazing story in a matter of a few short hours. A

First of all let me say that I absolutely love a sports romance! Secondly, I have adored each of the books in Heidi’s Boys of Summer series. While the bulk of the story takes place away from Boston while Hawk recuperates from an injury, the story remains rooted in the fact that he is a ball player. Then you have Bellamy, a single mom who just wants her son to be happy after their move to her hometown.

This story had layers, but they all worked so well together creating a rich backdrop. Hawk and

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

I really enjoyed this book. The pace was great. I feel like the little nuggets of drama kept you turning the pages. Hawk is a Professional baseball pitcher who is injured and returns home to rehab. 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.

I love the connection between the characters. I love the setting and the overall dynamic and f the book.

Hawk is a professional baseball player who is finds himself back in his hometown while he tries to recover from a potential career ending injury. 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.

Bellamy is a devoted single mother who would do anything for her son who dreams of playing baseball. The only problem is that he keeps

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

"There is so much going on in Hawks book, and I absolutely loved it.
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.
Bellamy was an equally wonderful character. The love she has for her son and the people around her was nothing short of beautiful. Put these

4.5 love at first sight stars.

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.

This is a sweet, fun and heartbreaking story that will have to smiling and desperately pulling for these two. The author has a wonderful way of telling her stories and this read proves how lovely her words can be. I

Oh how I love me some boys of summer! This entire series is absolutely amazing so I was so stoked when I heard we would be getting another installment of Renegade baseball. And boy did McLaughlin ever deliver!
I could not put this one down! Hawk grabbed my heart and I was gone for him from the start. This one kept me turning the pages until the very end! I highly recommend you pick this one up. You won't be sorry.

Loved Bellamy & Hawk’s story. This book will have you all in your feels. Bellamy’s a single mom wanting nothing more that to help her son make the team he so desperately wants when a new hot as heck coach starts. Hawk being an injured professional player starts coaching little league. He develops a relationship not only with Bellamy but with a whole new team. When injuries heal and secrets get revealed where will that lead Hawks new life? This is an absolute MUST READ!!

Hawk by Heidi McLaughlin is my new favorite sports romance! Hawk is so genuine, kind, and caring, and won me over from the start. Bellamy warmed my heart being her son's biggest advocate. The kids in this book stole my heart and had me rooting for a HEA. Heidi McLaughlin hits a homerun with this must read story.

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!!

I couldn’t wait too read Hawk’s story and all I have too say is that I wasn’t disappointed at all. Hawk will definitely make you swoon hard. Hawk & Bellamy are absolutely perfect for each other. I couldn’t get enough of their story and their ending was absolutely perfect.

3.5 Hawk Stars. If you’re looking for a low angst, sport themed contemporary romance with a twist, this one is for you. It’s my first read in this series and it can be read as a stand alone. Now I want to go back and read the others.

Bellamy feels like a failure as a mom and her son's little league coach is a douche who thinks he's gonna get what he wants. Entering in Hawk who at first isn't thrilled but gets on board once he see's how bad it really is. This can totally be read as a standalone with how the story is laid out. I love how you get both Hawk and Bellamy's sides and see how they each feel about the other the attraction is fierce from the start. There are a few twist and surprises that make it even more ...more
