Publisher's Summary

She can’t let him score...

Call it superstition, but when a guy bats as hot as Brooks Elliott, you don’t mess with what’s working. And what’s working is him keeping his pants zipped and doing all of his scoring on the field.

So when I hear he’s planning to ditch his V-card now that he’s been traded to baseball’s lovable losers - a.k.a. my home team and my reason for living every March through October - I do what any rational, dedicated, obsessed fan would do.

I make a plan to stop him.

But the thing about stopping him is that it requires spending time with him.

Lots. And lots. And lots of time.

And the more time I spend with him, the more I like him. Not as the guy who’s going to help save my favorite team and finally bring home a championship ring, but as the guy who’s helping me in my quest to bring back the team’s old mascot. Who also loves making pancake and bacon sandwiches. And who would do almost anything for his love of the game.

But after all this time of jock blocking him…do I even have a chance?

And if I do, are we both destined to a life of celibacy in the name of winning?

Jock Blocked is a home run of a feel-good romantic comedy featuring the world’s most superstitious sports fan, baseball’s oldest virgin hero, a rogue meatball, an adorable puppy with a cussing problem, and the best lovable losers. It stands alone and comes with a happily ever after more satisfying than a game-winning grand slam.

Yes this was fun !

Ok loved this book ! How do you break a curse?? Is there such a thing as meaning to superstitions? Well this fun fast paced story will try answer your questions . Brooks the sweet Ave hot baseball player is still a virgin ( why you ask well read or listen to the book lol ) Mackenzie is the teams biggest fan ! She was him to stay a virgin . Why ( see above reason ) add a puppy that likes to swear ( so funny ) and a couple of cross dressing dads and a group of friends and you have a great book

10 + STARS

What a laugh a minute with this book. I highly recommend this book and all of the other fabulous books by the incredibly talented PIPPA GRANT. Brooks and Mackinsey are puurrffect together and Cocca Puffs the puppy is simply a star in training. So if laughter and baseball are your thing, then just buy this book.

Silly

I thought the story was a bit silly! I think they took superstitions way too far. As usual, Andy Arndt and Jacob Morgan were great.

I snort laughed. I almost peed my pants. Read it!

“Okay, your next story has to have drag queens, an echidna, a virgin baseball player whose game depends on not popping his cherry, a dog with a collar that spews curses when the dog barks, and a crazy superstitious fan who steals a giant meatball. Got it? Go!”
This is how I imagine Pippa Grant’s stories get their hilarious story lines. I snort laughed all the way through this book. Another great story!

Hilarious!

This one is freaking awesome! I laughed so many times listening to this book. Andi and Jacob are my two favorite narrators. They made this one come to life. I kept having to rewind a lot of the funny parts because I wanted to keep laughing.

Fantastic narrators but very silly story.

This was too silly to enjoy. A fan girl tries to save the virginity of an adult male professional athlete all in the name of having a winning baseball team. The narrators were fantastic! However, this is not worth a credit.

Another home run!

Great choice in narrators! They are a couple of my favorites and Jacob Morgan did a fabulous job with Brooks' drunk scene. Favorites!

I absolutely love Pippa Grant and all her books. She is a one click author for me and I am never disappointed!! Brooks and Mackenzie don't just have chemistry they sizzle from first touch. Both characters are warm, friendly, sexy and crazy, but absolutely perfect for each other. Mackenzie needs someone to believe in her, accept her and all her crazy for the wonderful person she is with no judgment. Brooks needs someone to inspire him and remind him why he plays baseball. Together they are unstoppable but to get there they have to break a curse first and what fun they have doing it.

I love how close Pippa Grant has made all her characters and that we get to see more of them in each book. Some add to the chaos, but all support the main characters and each other. I can't wait for the others to get their books! And let's not forget the animals. Pippa always makes sure to bring them out and proud!

I highly recommend this books, the series, and all things Pippa Grant. If you want to laugh until you cry then she is your author!

Brilliantly read

I laughed so much. I know nothing about baseball but that was ok, I only needed to know it was a sport thing.

I cried during an epilogue though and had to stop listening while I resorted to housework to help me recover.

A great listen

This was a really funny book and well read. I think this story would be best listened to after the first 3 Bro code books to get the most out of the story.

One of my ALL TIME FAVE Pippa Grant books!!

I cannot rave enough about Pippa Grant's books - they are the right mix of outright hilarity with some really heartfelt, character driven plots. And Jock Blocked is a perfect example of this!! Mackenzie and Brooks have a very mixed beginning but when you have a Fireballs Baseball Team obsessed fan do everything in her power to get her team's new recruit to stay a virgin so he can continue hitting the ball... well you are guaranteed lots of laughs, lots of love and lots of fun!! Add in the excellent supporting cast (Pippa does secondary characters so well!!) and a mascot voting contest ... and well this is one book I won't be forgetting anytime soon!!

As for the audio - Jacob Morgan & Andi Arndt were absolutely perfect for Brooks and Mackenzie and they were the cherry on top of an ice cream sundae of pure goodness!!
