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

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

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

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

First of all, Heidi. . . wow. . . how to do you keep surpassing my already high expectations?

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.

Back in his hometown, Hawk meets Bellamy. Bell is a mom that will do

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.

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.

The Boys of Summer book #4, Hawk, is absolutely fantastic! I absolutely love these characters. Told in dual POV, which I enjoy getting the in depth look of both characters and their emotions. Hawk and Bellamy both have their own challenges holding them back.
Bellamy is a single mother who has a creep of an ex that treats her and their son awful. However Bellamy is able to stand her own ground when dealing with her ex and the people involved in the Little League.

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

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.

Heidi McLaughlin hit it out of the park with Hawk. It hit on some of my favorite genres including sports, small town, single mom and I can't tell the other without spoilers.

Hawk Sinclair has returned home to Montana to rehab a shoulder injury. He has been away too long. Corruption rules the little league. Sinclair Fields that Hawk donated is no longer succeeding at the purpose it was created.

Bellamy has come home after her marriage crumbled. Her son is not put on a little league team again

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

"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

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

A fantastic insta-love story from Heidi McLaughlin. I was pulled in to Hawk and Bellamy's story from the off.

Hawk is a professional Baseball player for the Renegades and when he returns to his hometown to recover from an injury he has no idea he's about to find himself coaching Little League.
Bellamy is a single mum and just wants her son to be happy when she goes looking for help to get her son into a little league team she meets Hawk and their chemistry is off the charts.

Hawk came home to Montana to nurse an injury. And while home, he discovers his home team little league isn't being run fairly and that there are kids who don't get to play. One such boy is Bellamy's son, who loves the game and just wants to play baseball. Bellamy moved back home to Montana after her cheating ex husband started a new family and didn't want Chase

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.
