The Shortstop by A.M. Madden


 This book blew me away in the best possible way. The friends to lovers story pulled me in from the first page and I had to read it in one sitting. Hot baseball player Quint and sweet, almost saintly Annie met as very young children and with each passing year, their relationship blossomed. They navigate their relationship better than most couples far older but even the best couples have problems. 

     Madden’s writing is outstanding. The tension builds in a way that allows readers to feel it but there are so many twists and turns that when things blow up, there is still shock value. Every time I thought I knew what was going to happen, I was proven wrong and I loved it! Even better, I could feel what the characters were feeling. I felt so connected and invested in Quint and Annie’s journey that when the bottom dropped out, I had to put the book down and cry on my husband’s shoulder for a few minutes.  Seriously. I really cried on his shoulder and he looked at me like I was insane. Madden didn’t just stab me in the heart, she twisted the knife several times and left me begging her to repair my broken heart. I won’t spoil it by telling you if she did but I will say that this book is a must have for any lover of epic love stories with a side of steaminess.
