Release Date: November 4th
Ethan Davenport is already Boston’s most eligible bachelor, in his second season with the Boston Renegades and has eyes for the girl behind the visitors’ dugout who has been staring at him for a year.
That girl is Daisy Robinson, a journalism student at the University of Boston, a die-hard Renegades fan and determined to give Ethan a run for his money. He knows in order to have a chance with her, he needs to change his ways but he may just need her to wait until the off-season.
But with new found love comes challenges and Ethan and Daisy have to deal with his crazy schedule, school finals and his presence on her campus for some much needed media training. For Ethan nothing can come between him and Daisy, until a secret that she’s been keeping threatens to destroy them both.
Baseball and a Heidi McLaughlin book in one? YES PLEASE! I’m a huge baseball fan so when Heidi announced she was writing a baseball book I was beyond excited.
Ethan Davenport is the third baseman for the Boston Renegades and is one of the hottest up and coming players. He’s pretty into his career and hasn’t done much in the way of dating since him and his longtime girlfriend, Sarah, broke up. It was mutual breakup and the two still get together when he’s in town. This is perfect for Ethan until one day a college student who doesn’t miss a home game catches his eye.
Daisy Robinson is a student at the University of Boston and a major Renegades fan. Daisy’s grandpa has season tickets right above the third base side dugout. Due to his health, Daisy’s grandpa cannot attend the games, so she makes sure she attends every game for the both of them.
Ethan gets Daisy's attention pretty quick. I love that Daisy doesn’t fan girl all over Ethan once he puts it out there that he’s interested in her. She treats him like a normal person and keeps him on his toes. With Daisy in school and Ethan on the road a relationship won’t be easy. There will be some ups and downs and some twists that will have your emotions going.
Third Base takes you through the baseball life. The locker room scenes and the interaction between the players is great. The baseball blog in the story is kept true to what baseball fans are thinking and saying making the story more believable and engrossing. I LOVE that Heidi made the lead female a huge baseball fan. Being that I am one myself, this makes me cheesy smile. If you aren’t familiar with baseball, don’t worry, by the end of the book you will know all about the game. Heidi did a great job explaining the game so everyone will understand it. Lastly, the secondary characters will have you wrapped up just as much as Ethan and Daisy. I can’t wait until the next book in the series, I’m dying for Kidd’s book!
