**Bt & Giveaway** Strike ~ Completion Series 2 ~ Holly Roberts

Strike Blog Tour Banner


Strike is the second book in the Completion Series. 
There is no connection to Play (book I) except the sports theme. Strike is a standalone HEA novel.

Nineteen-year-old Jaycee Shumway breaks into professional baseball player, Reed Tyler’s home, to steal the second most valuable set of balls he owns. Neither of them expect their striking attraction or battle of wills to lead them to a homerun.
Jaycee has more than herself to worry about. When Reed discovers she has a younger brother and sister, he’s quickly caught up in their world of need and heartbreak.
Baseball season begins and the separation puts Reed and Jaycee’s game on hold. With bases loaded and hearts on the line, will Reed convince Jaycee that she needs him to win or will Jaycee strike out and walk off the field forever?
This New Adult book is intended for mature audiences.

His husky laughter rang out, drowning me in the sexy sound. Why couldn’t he snort like a pig or something just as ridiculous when he laughed?
“You’re very concerned about my balls,” he said when his laughter died away.
My smartass mouth took front and center. “If you remember… I’ve seen your balls and it would be unsporting of me not to be concerned.”
Oh, God, his eyes sparkled and I would do anything to take back my words and the thoughts they conjured.
Reed wouldn’t let it pass. “I’ve seen a fair amount of you and that also causes me concern. So much concern that I didn’t sleep well last night.”
Mortification anyone?
“A gentleman wouldn’t bring that up.”
This time, his laugh was plain evil. “A gentleman wouldn’t have cut away your shirt and bra. A gentleman wouldn’t have admired your tits. A gentleman wouldn’t do this…”
I had no time to prepare for what happened next. His warm lips took mine at the same time his hands closed around my upper arms, trapping me. My entire body reacted to the kiss. I grew light-headed, my breasts ached, and my heart almost exploded out of my chest. But it was the taste of his mouth that had me squeezing my thighs together. I never knew anyone could taste this good. There was no description on earth that did it justice. I wanted to eat him whole.

I absolutely loved this book. It wasn't one of those big angsty books, there wasn't a whole lotta conflict. But lemme tell ya what it did have. 

It has this awesome female MC, who does whatever she has to do to take care of her family. Even break the law. She does, however, have her morals. She is a strong, vibrant, independent woman who doesn't need anyone. Especially, this crazy, rich, baseball player who has decided not to leave her and her family alone. 

It has a strong, sexy male MC who sees something in the girl breaking into his home. He's not sure what it is. But he can't wait to find out. He goes out of his way to help her out even when she does her best to refuse him. Now he just needs to convince her that she's not a "pet project". *swoon*

Holly Roberts provides with another fabulous hit in the Completion Series. Besides, who doesn't love a man who knows how to handle his balls??

  1. Love the review, thank you for making me laugh!

  2. Once I started Striker I literally couldn't put it down. If her next book in the series is even half as good as this one is I will a very satisfied woman.
