A ballerina and a baseball player. What an intriguing combination!!
A romantic story, with angst and drama.
It was emotional and the writing was very good.
In the beginning it was very slow, but later it slightly picked up, but overall it was too lengthy.

I loved everything about this story. From the way Katie is introduced into Will’s life, to the the moment Will & Jasmine “meet”, and the touching, sweet moments surrounding Katie. That little girl seriously stole the whole story.

Jasmine is a fantastic character. She wasn’t anything like I thought she’d be. Of course, neither was Will. Jasmine has such a great, firecracker personality and seems to be just what Will needs in his life. Together their chemistry was electrifying and addictive. Loved

This is such a good book. I could hardly put it down. This book drew me in because Will is a single dad and a baseball player. Talk about kryptonite for me. This book packs in so much emotion and heart. I loved little Katie and seeing her blossom to an amazing little girl was so beautiful. This book really touches the heart. It's a book I wanted to gobble up, but one you're sad see end. I can't recommend this one enough. The characters go through some big life changes, but you see the r

I received a complimentary copy of For the Win: A Standalone Baseball Romance (Kindle Edition) by Raine Thomas. This does not effect my honest review.

I always look forward to the next Raine Thomas book! When reading For the Win I wasn't disappointed. The story follows Ballerina Jasmine Li and Baseball Player Will Campbell. As always I enjoyed seeing the evolution of the story's romance. Going from the push and pull hurdles between the couple, mixed with the amazing chemistry! I enjoyed seeing bo

This is one of those stories that I wanted to reread the moment I finish it. The characters climbed inside my heart and tugged at every string. Their story brought tears to my eyes while still providing me with hope that all would be well. I enjoyed the secondary characters as well and found they added depth to this lovely story. If you haven’t read a book by Ms. Thomas, this is a great place to start…trust me, you’ll love Will, Jasmine, and Katie as much

Quite simply, I loved everything about this book. The characters were so real, the storyline captured my attention, and the writing was fantastic! I’m pretty sure I’ve read every single one of Raine Thomas’ books and she continues to provide me with stories that captivate and warm my heart. This contemporary love story about a baseball player with a daughter who need some special attention and a ballerina who’s facing the harsh reality that her dreams won’t come true was equal party heartbreakin ...more

You need to read this book! I thought I loved For Everly (Cole and Everly) and Meant For You (Sierra and Evan) but I have to say as good as those books are this story blows them out of the water. If you like hot and handsome athletes You will love Will Campbell! At the heart of this romance is the truth that the plans we have for our lives don't always follow our carefully laid plans. Jasmine, Katie and Will find something precious and beautiful but if their lives had followed their carefully sc ...more

This book was not what I expected to read in the best way.
• I expected fluffiness and hallmark like moments (and there are moments like that trust me) But there were also some dark undertones such as knowing that you can have more than one dream vs not and working with someone who has special needs because of varying circumstances (I won't spoil for you).
• This is an ADULT novel with smut and trigger warnings for abuse and professional injuries.
Overall, I enjoyed this book although there are s

Loved!! Definitely a win!

I loved everything about this story because I was captivated from the first second by a baseball player and a ballerina. Will and Jasmine's had amazing chemistry. I loved them so much and how different they appeared but how their hearts were just so wonderful. Add in a little girl that has my heart completely and I was is in love with the story and these characters."
