More Than A Game #4
Kristina Mathews
Releasing on January 19, 2016.
Lyrical Shine

For Rachel Parker, covering the San Francisco Goliaths is the perfect opportunity to launch her career as a serious reporter. But she didn’t bargain on Bryce Baxter, the team’s star shortstop, tempting her more non-professional aspirations. After tearing up the base paths with him, she finds herself with a little problem, and Bryce might be the only man who can save the game.

Bryce Baxter should be living the dream. His team just won the World Series and he just signed the multi-year contract of his career. But his field of dreams has been overtaken by a fiery redheaded reporter, who’s bearing a news flash that will change both of their lives forever…


Kristina Mathews doesn't remember a time when she didn't have a book in her hand. Or in her head. But it wasn't until she turned forty that she confessed the reason the laundry never made it out of the dryer was because she was busy writing.

While she resigned from teaching with the arrival of her second son, she's remained an educator in some form. As a volunteer, parent club member or para educator, she finds the most satisfaction working with emergent and developing readers, helping foster confidence and a lifelong love of books.

Kristina lives in Northern California with her husband of more than twenty years, two sons and a black lab. A veteran road tripper, amateur renovator and sports fanatic. She hopes to one day travel all 3,073 miles of Highway 50 from Sacramento, CA to Ocean City, MD, replace her carpet with hardwood floors and serve as a “Ball Dudette” for the San Francisco Giants.

“He drank her in as if she was a long, cool drink of water on a hot day.  He needed her.  And the way she pressed against him, running her fingers through his hair and taking him in, she needed him too.”

4 adorable stars!  This book was definitely cute and a lot more tame than what I usually read but I loved every page!!

Bryce Baxter is the star shortstop for the San Francisco Goliaths baseball team.  He’s on a high after winning the world series and signing a huge contract.  The last thing he needs is a woman to come and complicate it, but in walks Rachel Parker.  Rachel has just started working as a sports reporter and she’s given the task to cover SF Goliaths.  She never thought in a million years that while on location she’d meet one of the hottest players and that he’d be interested in her.  Their attraction is instantaneous and the sparks fly.  But when a complication arises that can change both of their lives, what will they do?

This book had a lot of heart and you can’t help but fall in love with the characters.  The storyline was well written and it was hard not to be sucked in!!  While this book is part of a series, this one can be read as a standalone!
