Behind the Plate by J. Sterling ~ Release Blitz w/ Review

The most anticipated J. Sterling release of the year is finally here! You’ve waited years to meet Jack Carter’s son and the wait is over! Strap in and enjoy the ride. 

Chance Carter is the son of local baseball legend, Jack Carter. Now in his junior year at Fullton State, Chance is facing challenges he never saw coming. Failing a class will stop his draft season short, making him ineligible to play and pushing his goal of professional baseball even further away.

In steps Danika, a mouthy tutor from New York, who only wants to help him pass his class… NOT get in his pants. But try telling that to Chance.  He doesn’t trust girls and he definitely doesn’t trust his new tutor.  A lifetime growing up as a Carter taught him that.

But Danika has issues of her own.  After an incident that happened last year, she doesn’t trust athletes and wants nothing to do with them. And Chance is no exception.

The fireworks explode as the two try to deny the chemistry between them and family secrets are revealed. Chance doesn’t know how to give up on something he wants and he’s decided he wants Danika. There’s just one problem… she has a boyfriend she has no intention of breaking up with.

How can he have her when she belongs to someone else?

I really love this author and have loved her past books. I liked this 2nd book, but didn’t love it. It’s Chance Carter’s story. The son of the great Jack Carter and it’s very reminiscent of his parents’ story…for me, too much like it. The names have changed and characters but the premise was pretty much the same.

Chance is the bad boy of baseball and has his focus solely on that. He wants no distractions from anything or anyone. That is until he meets Danika. He is failing, needs a tutor and she is the only choice. She is known to be the best, but he thinks she may be a distraction. He knows his future depends upon passing, and she can 100% help him do that. He agrees and that’s where it all begins.

Danika has no time for baseball players or their egos but agrees to tutor Chance. She is quite the spitfire and does not let him get away with anything. The more time they spend together, she starts to realize Chance is more than baseball and an admiration as well as attraction starts to form. Now this wouldn’t be an issue if she didn’t have a boyfriend and that lends a little drama to this storyline. It was cute to watch these two fight their feelings for each other and work through their issues. But it was very predictable and mirrored his parents’ story. Good but I was hoping for more.

I’m a New York Times and USA Today best selling author of over 18 books! My goal is to write stories that you can get lost in, that will leave a smile on your face and a full heart. If you can forget about the real world while you’re reading and fall in love with my characters, then I’ve done my job. A lot of what I write has real life aspects in it, but that’s what makes the stories so relateable- the fact that they could happen to anyone… and have!

I live in California with my only son, Blake. If you can’t find me sitting behind a computer screen, then there’s a good chance I’m sitting in the bleachers of a baseball stadium watching him play. I love traveling to new places, meeting my readers and living life with the Real Jack Carter. β™‘

I know you have a million books to choose from and I am humbled, grateful and thankful each time you choose to read one of mine, or tell someone else to read them. Thank you.
