Publisher's Summary

Wes: Life on the road as a pro-ballplayer isn't without it's drawbacks. And now, without a team to play for, I find myself heading home. Maybe it's a good thing. I can focus on my daughter, Izzy, and my life. I need to get things straightened out, including that hole that I never filled after Izzy's mom left. But, is there anything that could keep me in town if another team came calling? 

Kristin: I came to Chandler to build a new life. But just a few months in, things abruptly changed. Wes Martin: professional baseball player, apparent local hero, and total hottie is back in town. Our chance meeting in my library is quickly leading to something more. I'm falling hard for this man. But am I just another notch on his belt? Will I come between he and his daughter? There are too many questions, so many complications. Yet... I can't get Was Martin out of my head.

Baseball and love..the perfect combination

Just when you think you have everything figured out in life it all falls to pieces. Wes has been playing professional baseball for 15 years and gets cut from his team before opening day. Going back home is time for him to reconnect with his family and finally time for him to take over the care of his daughter. But crossing paths with the new librarian Kristen leads to instant chemistry and hot passion. Will this new relationship make it hard on Wes and his daughter? Or will being called back to baseball put an end to his new romance? With a beautiful heartwarming storyline and great characters this book is a must read. This had the perfect ending. These were the a great choice for narrators.

Change Up Review

I absolutely loved this book!!!

We first meet Kristine, a 20 something librarian, who had just moved to town. She is trying to come up with new ways to get local teens involved with reading, including book delivery. The first request comes from a local teen, who wants a book to read to her grandmother. Making the decision to deliver the book personally instead of mailing it out may have been the best choice Kris has ever made.

That’s where she meets Izzy Martin, teen daughter of local baseball legend Wes Martin. Thing in Kris’ life start to take a turn when Wes shows up in town after being let go by his team.

Sparks fly between them as they start to hang out and then the worst thing happens... Wes get offered to join another Baseball team. Can there love for each other survive everything that is coming between them or will they lose each other forever?

I love the book, loved the characters and the plot. I laughed, and cried through this book, but it brought up some tough points of being a single parent. I’m glad everything worked out in the end.

Wes and Kristen

Wes is a 35 year old professional baseball player who has been a single father who has been raising his 15 year old daughter Izzy with the help of his parents since his ex-wife decided the small town lifestyle wasn’t for her. When he is released by the team for a younger player he heads home to re-evaluate his future.

Kristen has recently moved to Chandler to become the head librarian. She has plans for the library and is trying to create programs to interest the youth in town in what the library can do for them.

From the moment that Wes and Kristen meet they have an instant attraction but trying to balance his career, his daughter and Kristen is proving more difficult than he imagined.

This is a heartwarming romantic story which is set in a small town. The characters are all well developed and Wes is not your typical jock which just makes you like him more. I received a complimentary copy of the audiobook and I thought the narrators did a great job of bringing the story to life.

Baseball and Romance!

The author did a really great job writing this sports themed romance. It is on the sweeter side of the romance spectrum and it is a heartwarming tale. The story flows very smoothly with characters that feel genuine and seem more down to earth. This was a pleasure to listen to as we watch Wes and Kristen's relationship develop over the course of the story. Also, it does have a happily ever after!

I think the dual narration was a great touch to this well written story. Since the point of view alternates between Wes and Kristen throughout, I feel as though having two narrators really helped magnify the writing and the feelings the characters experienced. Both did a fabulous job and I really enjoyed their performances.

I received a review copy at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Super sweet it'll give you cavities!!

My first book/audio from Lacy Hart and I of course, loved Change Up! I’m not huge into sports but for some reason I love some good sports romance. I adored Wes and his daughter, Izzy. I really adored the little match-making that happened here. Kristin is the local librarian. The characters are all sweet and totally match the tone of the story. I do wish we got to know the characters a bit more… perhaps just a bit more layered and a bit more complex. I enjoyed the chemistry between Kris and Wes and the heat was nice. I do wish there was a bit more action… either angst or just more feelings. However, this is a great sweet and happy story with a bit of conflict.

The narrators Juliana Solo and Daniel James Lewis were fantastic! Even though I wish there was more conflict or feelings… I found that I flew through this. I think I happy and sweet story is just what is needed every once and a while! I feel like Solo and Lewis really complimented each other.

A Home Run for Wes & Kristin! 4.5 Wonderful Stars!

“Change Up” is a well written, sweet romance! Lacy Hart captures the readers attention and holds it there to the very end. The storylines and characters are interesting and well developed. The two leads, Wes & Kristin are very likable, as some of the secondary characters, especially Wes’ Dad. Wes’ daughter Izzy caused some drama but thankfully comes around towards the end. Lacy Hart, thank you for another great read!

I listened to the Audible edition, Juliana Solo & Daniel James Lewis are awesome narrators. There is great chemistry between them and they perform great together. They bring the characters and story to life from the pages to your ears. Thank you for another great listen!

Thank you 🎧AudiobookObsession
