The Changeup | [Rhonda Shaw]

The Changeup

After nine years of striking out in the dating department, Maddie Hamlin is throwing in the towel. But just as this mom resolves to remain single, she meets sweet and sexy pitching phenom Chase Patton at a family dinner. He's perfect for her-aside from the fact he's only 22. Chase knows he should be focusing on his rookie year with the Detroit Rockets, but he can't stop thinking about Maddie. He doesn't care that the beautiful school counselor is twelve years older, and he's already lost his heart to her adorable daughter.

Publisher's Summary

Playing for keeps

After nine years of striking out in the dating department, Maddie Hamlin is throwing in the towel. But just as this mom resolves to remain single, she meets sweet and sexy pitching phenom Chase Patton at a family dinner. He's perfect for her-aside from the fact he's only 22.

Chase knows he should be focusing on his rookie year with the Detroit Rockets, but he can't stop thinking about Maddie. He doesn't care that the beautiful school counselor is twelve years older, and he's already lost his heart to her adorable daughter. When an incredible date leads to an incredible night of passion, he knows he never wants to let her go.

But dating in the media spotlight is a whole new ball game. Maddie quickly discovers that not everyone accepts their unconventional relationship-and that finding love may mean losing everything else....

    "Pitcher Up"

    This one was a compromise choice because as Sasha said; "it has baseball in it," yeah right. I normally avoid fiction, mystery or romance novels with sports themes. I know quite well that as the errors pile up I'll begin the teeth grinding reaction that I feel when someone who knows little if anything about the sport continually screws it up. Rhonda Shaw isn't too bad when it comes to gross factual mistakes though the field leader of a baseball team isn't known as a head coach, he's a manager. Also due to the reduction in starts no first year player in modern baseball will set any records for wins by a rookie; a three game suspension for a starting pitcher is meaningless for a starting pitcher since he pitches every fifth day.
    As for the other facets of the book the protagonist's actions bend reality a good deal but come just short of breaking it. It is of course a mistake to ascribe to anyone the ability to act logically in emotional situations but her actions are so off and fit so badly with previous actions they come off as stranger than fiction. Add to these problems is the one dimensional nature of most of the book's characters particularly the members of her family, including her daughter.
