This was a steamy sports romance. I love baseball, so it was super easy for me to fall for Gage Young. He played one of my favorites sports and he was a catcher! Win win. He was also a sexy single dad who loved his son. He meets Nina Mitchell a former softball player and now the coach of his son's little league team.

I was given this book for an honest review.

I get that not every book is for every reader, and I'm finding that the Cocky Hero Club world is either really good.. or not really good, but I just couldn't with this one. I've never been so disinterested. I could not care less about our hero or heroine, mainly because I didn't like either of them, and I didn't connect with the actual story at all. Plus, did the story actually make sense? Because to me, it did not.

This was a huge miss for me.

Gage know his appeal both as the star catch for his team and when it comes to women and isn’t afraid to let everyone around him know it as well. His first meeting with Nina did not go well and although he can’t stop thinking about her he never expected to see her again until he drops his daughter off for her softball team practice and finds out she is her coach.

Nina helps her family run the community center and she uses her skills from playing softball at an elite level to coach a girl’s team. T

I’m finding the Cocky Hero Club to be very hit and miss. Some books tick all my boxes, but other books are not for me. Cocky Catcher falls into the later category. I’m sure many will enjoy this one, but it didn’t work for me.

My problem with this one was that I just couldn’t connect to it at all. I did not like the characters, which left me uninterested in their story. I kept waiting for something to hit me hard, but none of the events sucked me in the way I had hoped.

I said this in a previous review for this series, but I'm loving getting to read new-to-me authors and I thoroughly enjoyed Ms. Dennie's writing style. Not an overly long story, but long enough to feel a connections with the characters and their evolving feelings for each other. Add in baseball and Gage as a single dad to a precocious and adorable little girl and you've got me hooked. ...more

OMG... it’s a home run for the Cocky Hero series.
This is about a single dad who is a hot baseball player...swoon. And an ex-softball player.
Will they be able to overcome their short comings?
What a great , quick read that keeps your attention from the first page to the last.
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Cocky Catcher by Chiquita Dennie is the story of Gage Young and Nina Mitchell.
Gage is a baseball player who is also a single dad. Gage is attracted to Nina who is a girls softball coach who at one time was a baseball player too. Now she is just trying to save the community center family runs. The more they get to know each other the more they learn that they aren't who their first impression of each other are. Enjoyed this book.

5 Star Review Cocky Catcher by Chiquita Dennie
Chiquita Dennie is a new author to me and I have no idea why that is. This is Gage Young and Nina Mitchell’s story. This was was a quick, entertaining read that had me hook, line and sinker.
I love single parent stories and this one ticked the boxes for me. From start to finish I was engrossed in their story and didn’t want it to end.
This was a well written, emotional, funny, romantic story with characters that you cannot help but fall for.

Chiquita Dennie is a new to me author. I really enjoyed her writing style. She is a very descriptive writer and I enjoyed it tremendously. Her writing really creates a community of characters. There were a lot of names, but it wasn’t terrible to keep track of who’s who. They all add value to the story and to the development of characters.

Who doesn't like a good sports romance and Cocky Catcher is a good one!

Gage is not only a Billionaire Catcher he is also in the eyes of Nina a Cocky Catcher - he thinks so much of himself that it is a wonder he can get through the door. But for all that Gage has an adorable little Tailynn who has got her dads sass down to a T.

From the first time Gage literally bumped into Nina in the street he has fantasied about her and what he would like to do with her, to her and everything else in the midd

Oh Man what can I say about this story is that I LOVE BASEBALL and this was right up my alley. Nina loves baseball to it's her life. She has such passion to helping her family and other's it's what's her life mission. When the place she loves to much is in trouble her and her siblings try to save it. But someone bigger is at play. What she doesn't expect is to get help from a player who she wants to slap and kiss at the same time. Gage young is cocky and knows it. But he's good at what he does. ...more

Chiquita Dennie's Cocky Catcher had a predictable plot we have seen before but, it was followed up with great character development and great visual stimulation. It was easy to picture everything in great detail without 50 pages of scene development.
I loved the main characters. Nina was a no nonsense woman that did not take any crap and didn't allow fame and fortune to determine the outcome. She said what she said and stuck to her convictions.
Gage was a typical rich, cocky athlete. He was used

I mostly liked the book. There were a few times that I got lost. I'm planning to give it another listen in a few weeks to confirm if it was me getting distracted. For now, let's say that these two ran hot and cold - frequently at odds where the other one was. Sometimes it was funny. Other times, they simply drove each other crazy.

I did love Gage's pet names for his favorite women - Little Bit and Babydoll. Even when he was a jerk, they made him seem a bit sweeter.

Nina and Gage, an ex-softball player and a pro baseball catcher, do not have an easy path to being together. Besides dealing with their attraction to each other there are issues with her family's business to contend with.

An interesting premise, but - and excuse the pun - this one just didn't hit it out of the park for me.

Thank you to the author for providing an ARC for an honest review.

Cocky Catcher intertwines in the world of Stuck Up Suit and gives us a bad boy by the name of Gage. Nina and Gage's story is entertaining, witty, steamy and filled with just enough drama to have you captivated right to the very end. A story that made me laugh, smile and had me falling in love with these two. Gage and Nina have a chemistry that can be felt from the first time they meet and it never wavers. Their story will take you on a ride of push and pull as Nina struggles to keep her heart at ...more

Two headstrong characters with a love for playing ball. What's not to love? Gage and Nina's chemistry brought a lot of sighing and late night reading. Add in the fact that Gage is a single dad to Tailynn... sigh. Again, what's not to love? There were some parts of the story that were not as refined as others, but I reminded myself that I was reading a galley and got over it. The author is new to me, but she weaved a story that worked well into my favorite Cocky Hero World. I look forward to read ...more

Gage is a successful baseball player. He has it all he is smoking hot ball player but he is also a dad to Tailynn .
He loves spending time with his good but when he is not playing ball or being a father he loves the ladies. While out with another woman he bumps into Nina literally. These two definitely have chemistry and they have a lot of passion as per their interaction with one another. They definitely heat up when they talk baseball.

I'll start off by saying that I received an advanced copy of this book, and I plan to read the final edition of this book to see if they match up.

The story I read had a lot of promise and started off strong, but there were several spots where the storyline seemed off and like pieces were missing. It did distract from the story a little bit, which was disappointing.

However. This book still had a pretty strong storyline. Gage is one of those alpha males that most women fall all over - but the one
