WHO’D BEEN SLEEPING IN KASON RHODES’S BED? The left fielder for the Richmond Rogues had returned from six weeks of spring training in Florida to find someone had moved into his mobile home. That person was presently in his shower. And no matter how sexy the squatter might be, Kason wanted her out. He had his trusty dobie, Cimarron; he didn’t need anyone else in his life. N ...more

Recommends it for: Fans of hot contemporaries with a sports theme
I loved this book--and I'm not entirely sure why!:) There was nothing particularly new or exciting about the plot, no great suspense, no epic love scenes...but I just fell in love with the characters. Something about them just spoke to me--it just shows how important it is to have really, really likable charcaters for the reader to care about. I loved the hero and heroine, and I even loved their dogs, who were important characters in their own right! You don't have to be a baseball fan (or even ...more

I tried to read this book two times and I confess, I couldn't keep my eyes open to read some pages... I couldn't say writing style is bad or plot is poorly, but somehow I couldn't keep my interest in the story, I kept wandering somewhere else. So, I gave up and I think, it's about me because I read very good things about the book.Because of this fact I tried two times, yet here I'm and writing this things. :(

Such a great romantic story. I never read the first three in the series, and you don't need to. It's a great stand alone. For a quick, light romance read it had a surprising amount of depth (and heat!). One of my favorite scenes was near the end, so I can't share that with you. But it was all good, I can see why so many have raved about it. I'll need to get the rest of the books in this series.

The continuing saga of the Richmond Rogues. This is the fourth of the series following Squeeze Play, Curveball, and Strike Zone Richmond Rogues 3.

Kason Rhodes joined the team in the last book, Strike Zone. He was on arch-rival team the St. Louis Colonels until a trade brought him to Richmond. He's a loner and not well liked on the team--he isn't buddies with any of them and likes it that way. He lives on a thousand acres on his own and it makes him happy.

This was the fourth book in the series that I have read. Even though I fell hard for Zen and Psycho in the first two books and I really loved Brek's story to; and Psycho still remains one of my favorites, right up there with Zen nobody can seem to compare to Kason. He was strong, brooding, a loner. I loved that this story gave him time to truly know Dayne. That he fell in love with her and you believed it. This is a fast paced book that went right along with previous ones in the series. I loved ...more

I didn't know if I was reading a romance novel or watching a segment of ESPN sports! There was way too much play-by-play description given about each of the games and not enough description about the developing romance between the hero and heroine.

Also there was a secondary romance written into the book that diluted the story of the main characters. While I love the concept the book was poorly executed. I was not invested in the characters and did a whole lot of skimming to be honest.

I love Kate Angell books. The men she has created for the Richmond Rogues baseball team are fabulous and the women she chooses to pair them with are quirky and fun. Each character is uniquely charming. You don't have to be a baseball fan to start rooting for this team. This is one of my favorite series, I can't wait for the next one.

Wonderful depth of relationship development – down-on-her luck woman inhabits mobile home of baseball star.

Kason is a major league baseball player for the Richmond Rogues. He is a loner, anti-social, rarely speaks and lives with his dog in a mobile home in a secluded wooded area. When he returns from six weeks of spring training, he finds Dayne living in his home. She thought his trailer had been abandoned and is claiming squatter’s rights.

I went into this book looking for something light and fun. I am pleased to say that I was given exactly that. Although I'm not a huge fan of either contemporary romance or story lines involving sports, I liked Kason's surly attitude and his no holds barred approach to doing what he loved. Plus, his teammates were a freaking hoot!

So... Kason. Crappy childhood, pretty darn antisocial, totally focused on getting what he wants. Dayne's unexpected appearance in his house throws him for a loop. As muc

2.5 stars rounded up to 3 stars. This was an okay baseball story if you can overlook some multi-millionaire outfielder who likes to be alone just accommodating some poor girl first while she just breaks in to his empty double-wide trailer (he's away for spring training) and sets up residence. Does he call the cops? No, he just tells her she needs to move on and the next thing he knows she shows up with a very small Airstream trailer she hooks up right by his double wide (he is building a custom ...more

Just read this for the second time (first reading was April 1st, 2010) I enjoyed it both times!

Goodness! You either need a fan handy when reading this book, or a cold shower when you're done. Sliding Home is a smoking hot story about sullen, bad boy baseball player Kason Rhodes and his tomboy tenant Dayne Sheridan. From day one their relationship is filled with conflict and heat.

Not much is better than a romance where the guy is a super sexy jock, except when the story introduces you to his te

In addition to giving us lots of little tidbits about the life of a baseball player (community service hours, promotional contracts, training) Angell once again balances a main romance as well as a strong secondary romance plot. Her hero, stoic and unlikable in the beginning, rides a full character arc to the end.

One character with a stupid name is one thing, but every character had a ridiculous name and it was distracting. Seriously, Rhaden, Revelle and Kason? Mildly entertaining.

Coming home from six weeks of spring training should have been relaxing for left fielder and loner Kason Rhodes. Unfortunately relaxing isn't an option when he finds a squatter in his double-wide trailer. And it isn't Goldilocks.

Dayne Sheridan, suffering from a bad and public breakup with a well known radio personality, is hiding out and licking her wounds. Short on funds but long on moxie, she found the empty double wide on her flight from Baltimore. She slipped in through the ba

This was a re-read for me. I saw it at the library when I went to pick up Strike Zone and I figured, 'Eh, why not?' Now that I've read it directly after Strike Zone, the improvement in Angell's writing is clearly evident.

Once again, there are two couples featured in the book. Kason and Dayne are the primary couple, reinforced by the cover blurb. The secondary couple is Revelle and Rhodes. In Sliding Home, Angell does a much better job of keeping the couples apart and of allowing the primary cou

I liked Sliding Home. Kason Rhodes was different from the other Rogues. Good different. When it came to personality, Kason's a bit darker, more mysterious, a whole lotta serious. Introduced in Strike Zone as a trade from rival team Colonels, Kason didn't get the warm welcome he wasn't expecting anyway.

Here in Sliding Home, Kason's quiet, brooding nature complemented Dayne's kindhearted yet tomboyish independence, and the development of their relationship was neither quick nor dragging.

Loved my first introduction to the Richmond Rogues baseball team and Kate Angell's writing. She has wonderful insight into the game and camaraderie of a baseball team.
Kason was a stoic, self contained loner. He was the Rogue's last year's mid season trade addition as their star left fielder and home run slugger.
Dayne was a radio PR rep who was dumped on the air by her DJ fiancé. She takes off and ends up in what she thinks is an abandoned trailer home on an isolated piece of land which is priv

Well, everybody's ecstatic about this novel, so of course, I'm standing out !
Let me state that I haven't read the beginning of the series and that this author is new to me, maybe that's why ?
Anyway, it wasn't a bad book, I just don't feel compelled to devour all the others. There wasn't as much drama as I feared, good point. I felt lukewarm toward the characters at first, but they grew on me as I read, another good point. For a bunch of rich guys, they were rather down to earth, except when it

For a book called "Sliding Home," there wasn't much of that in baseball terms or in other euphemisms. The author spent more time telling us things than showing us things. Since there weren't a lot of steamy scenes I had hoped she would make up for it with baseball, but there weren't many of those scenes either. The characters didn't really have any depth and fell flat. Oh, and the names, let's just take a moment to consider the ridiculousness of the names because really, calling the pitcher Brek ...more

A very nice book that was surprisingly very tame in its sex scenes. But I loved the connection between the two heroes and the steps that took them from enemies, to friends and finally to lovers were realistic and sweet in a rough way.

The secondary romance was at least as interesting as the main one; I wish we saw a bit more of those two.

All in all, an excellent romance that kept my interest all the time. I only had a problem with the ending, where I found the wedding proposal a bit forced and

There's nothing I like more than a moody male. The romance between the two main characters took awhile to blossom, but it was worth the wait. I wasn't too sure at first. I mean, you have someone who claims you're living in their house, and you want to argue about it? Girl, you're homeless and you know you're in the wrong. However, get past that little snafu and the story improves. This is probably the best in the series.
