🏳️‍🌈 Hot Streak 🏳️‍🌈 Beth Bolden 🏳️‍🌈





Young phenom pitcher Connor Clark doesn't want or need help anyone's help making it to the majors.

He's got a hot arm, and an even hotter temper.

So when his minor league team brings in seasoned catcher Jackson Evans to "handle" him, the two clash instantly.

But as the two battle for power, anger gives way to lust, and an awakening Connor didn't see coming.

If Jackson wants to be 'hands on,' they might as well enjoy it. But once again, the man makes Connor work for it. Just like he does on the field.

Only this time, the reward is so much sweeter. When Connor gives in to Jackson's coaching, and Jackson gives in to his attraction, they're instantly on a hot streak—on the field and in bed.

So hot that Connor finally gets that call to the majors he's always wanted.

But what's a pitcher to do without the catcher who owns his heart? Now all Connor needs is to convince Jackson they belong to each other forever, not just on a baseball diamond.



ARC received via Neon Rainbow Reviews for an honest review

A gay retelling of the movie Bull Durham - one of my favourite baseball movies, up there with the high brow Major League lol - let me at it!

It was the retelling that I didn't know I needed, but boy, did I need it!

I love how things with Connor and Jackson go from utter dislike to locked gazes across the field, the snark to fighting is foreplay, from I can't do this again and force proximity, to Connor's gaywakening.

And I am here for it.

As fun as the story is, it is also emotional, full of complex characters and storylines that kept me intrigued and eagerly turning the next page.

And I also like the snippets of people from Bolden's other series.

Yes, I really did enjoy this one.

And now I am off to watch Bull Durham... again.
