Publisher's Summary

"Quint and Annie sitting in a tree, K.I.S.S.I.N.G."

Quint Lawson and Annie Weber heard that childhood song over and over, and it never bothered them. Even though Quint was only five, Annie wasn't just his neighbor. She would become his best friend and the love of his life. Annie wasn't interested in dolls or girly things when growing up. A tomboy at heart, having a boy as a best friend suited her just fine. That same boy captured her heart.

Quint had two passions, his girl and baseball. From kindergarten to college, Quint tore up every baseball diamond he played on. His position was shortstop. His talent was undeniable. Professional ball was most definitely in his future, and he was ready for it. Annie would be right by his side.

When everything in life is perfect, it's hard to imagine heartbreak in any form. Quint wasn't immune to its power. This shortstop had no idea what any form of heartbreak could do to his perfect world. When it hit, there were many casualties left in its wake...the most important one was Annie.

Can a person be prepared for, understand, or even endure a misfortune if they've never experienced one before? In Quint Lawson's case, the answer is no. The Shortstop is a contemporary romance stand-alone novel meant for listeners who are 18+ due to mature content.

Narration was HORRIBLE!

You can't tell the difference between Male or female voices. Several places throughout the reading you hear the sentence 2x. Good story, but horrible narrator!

Not for Me

I was so turned off by Quint's stupid behavior and the narrator's poor acting skills that I couldn't enjoy the audiobook nor the ebook. I have other books by this author and like them, but this one was a miss for me.

As far as the narrator goes I think I will avoid any book that she narrates with dual POVs, or where there are more them one character she needs to voice. She wasn't very good at changing from female to male voices or female to female voices for that matter.
