Misunderstanding and miscommunication can change lives, and that is exactly what happens in this book. It should never have gone down that way. You were mine from the time we were old enough to know what love was. I want you to be mine again. I absolutely loved this story!!! I could not put this book down, and felt for everyone in this book.

I felt for both Rennie and Zach. I understood how both could feel wronged, but yet, hoped they could both move on from their hurt together. And sometimes, those changes are never going to be a regret, even if they may hurt the person you love now. Your past is what makes you who you are. You can only accept the differences, and move on with or without each other. This book had me questioning constantly what would happen with Rennie, Zach, and their son, Tyler. She was stronger and more determined. She knew who she was and what she wanted, but the question he was dying to ask was…did she still want him?

Neighborhood friends turned high school and college sweethearts. Rennie was intensely in love with Zach and she thought he was with her too. To the point where they had sex like rabbits, talked endlessly about their futures and about Zach hopes of being signed to a pro baseball team. When Zach was signed he asked Rennie to marry him. Of course she said yes their lives were going according to their hopes and d Neighborhood friends turned high school and college sweethearts.

Of course she said yes their lives were going according to their hopes and dreams.

Strike Out

As well as their parents who were best of friends too. Does he not want this? No kids for us! At least not until after I win the World Series or closer till the end of my career. Rennie is feeling ill on their honeymoon she planned on surprising Zach with the news that she was pregnant. What should she do? Do you Love Rennie? I have loved her for as long as I can remember.

I just wish we could slow everything down. She sees her life pass before her and it is not pretty. Was their whole relationship a lie? Want to know what happens? There were a lot of issues posed in this storyline that could have been real downers but were handled nicely.

The characters were believable and down to earth. I just felt bad for Nathan, like he was used, but he knew what he was getting into, too. Very good story 5 stars. Provided by net galley. After ten years, circumstances brought them back together making her face the consequence of her actions years ago and the wrath he might bestow on her once he find her secret. It lacks the element of surprise that made most novel exciting and the readers looking forward to what the next page awaits. This book tells about the kind of love that took time to bloom and as well as feelings that have stood the test of time.

The kind of goes happily ever after surviving the realities of life. Second, the writer has a way with words. Emotions are something that are not easily put into words. Yet, despite the common plot, the author have manage to dress it with raw emotions that one that you can feel piercing into your heart just by reading them. And that was what made the book so hard to put down even if you can guess what will happen next. Only few authors can make me feel that way which makes me think that having the emotions by the characters be felt by the readers deep within is actually a gift.

And Cheryl Douglas definitely have that gift. Next is the hero Zach. I love how his feelings were very apparent from the beginning till the end. In romance novels like this, the hero are usually the latter to define their feelings for the heroine. But Zach here was not like that which made him an endearing book boyfriend material. And since this is a series, it makes you curious about all the characters aside from Zach and Rennie.

The author have manage to squeeze really interesting characters other than the main ones that will have you looking forward to the next book. I liked the sound of this, I have a soft spot for re-connections in romance, and with a child there's a solid link. So how did it work for me?

August – Dave Rhoades

Well, poor Lauren, when she heard Zach's comments the night before the wedding I understood her despair and sorrow. They were both young, and maybe that affected how they saw things. Lauren wouldn't stay and discuss his comments, he wasn't really thinking about what he said. Lauren wouldn't stay and discuss his comments, he wasn't really thinking about what he said.. Rennie loves her son, and is naturally very protective of him. Whether she's right in her actions who knows?

Life is always a gamble, and we do what we feel is best, she did and had to live with the results. Now Zach is back, and through her work she meets him and he learns about Tyler, his son. That part was neatly done: Tyler certainly showed initiative! Zach's plagued with guild about his comments on that fateful night, but also annoyed, and upset that he's missed on his son's early years. He's determined he'll play a part in his life now, but Rennie.. I felt for them both, young and bound by decisions and comments that may not have been made had they both talked before, or even after them.

Still, they didn't and now they have to pick up. I'm torn between feeling for Zach, who's missed so much of his sons life, and Rennie, who made a decision while emotional and has to live with it. The past can't be changed but she's terrified how Tyler will react when he finds out that Zach is his father and not Nathan, the dad he'd had who died a year before. Now it's all caught up with her and the decision out of her hands.

To Purchase

Will Zach want custody? Will Tyler want to live with him, and how will he take that she never told him the truth about his father? Its a real nightmare time for her, and all she's ever tried to do is keep Tyler happy. There's lots of emotion here, a decent and believable storyline and a romance that didn't drop. ARC supplied by Netgalley Mar 06, Angela Goodrich rated it really liked it Shelves: Strike Out is a good start to the Texas Titans series.

The prologue did an excellent job of setting the stage for the book and allowing the reader to connect with Zack and Rennie more quickly at least for me. It certainly made it easier to understand the motivation behind their actions, both a decade ago and in the present. Douglas had done a nice job in creating two realistic characters in a difficult situation. This is a second-chance romance featuring adult characters early 30s and I Strike Out is a good start to the Texas Titans series.

This is a second-chance romance featuring adult characters early 30s and I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. While there is definite chemistry between the two, the author focuses more on the plot and relationship development and while we only get one sex scene between the two, it definitely gets the job done if you know what I mean. The book had a great ending, but I felt it was a little rushed — or maybe I just wanted more of the story.

Douglas has given us a well-written novel that was well worth the ready. This is the Texas Titans series and I believe that the author missed a great opportunity to build the foundation for the series by not featuring the team and its players. That said, I am looking forward to the next book in the series and hope that Ms.

Douglas takes the opportunity to present more of the players and the game. I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review. Reviewed by Angela at Crystal's Many Reviewers! Sep 11, Bob Clarkson rated it liked it. I thought Zach was a flaming ash pit. I don't know about other grooms, but I was scared spitless before my wedding. Believe me, if I had felt "pressured", there would not have been a conversation with my brother the night before telling him all the things I had promised my bride to be that I Wasn't going to be doing.

They had been together for years and he had been lying to her the whole time. What a total Dutch bag Iknow, that's not the way to spell the word, but I don't want to bother the edi I thought Zach was a flaming ash pit. What a total Dutch bag Iknow, that's not the way to spell the word, but I don't want to bother the editors, too much. I can't imagine how it would feel to hear the person you loved tell how what you wanted didn't matter.

Things were going to be a one way street, and there were no plans to drive on your street. Being a Type A, I would have waited until the Pastor and everyone was in the church for the confrontation to see why I wouldn't marry a splt tongue snake with no moral strength. Zack never had respect for Nathan. Knowing you are a second choice, but loving her enough to marry her and give her child your name takes an especially strong person.

Most all men can be a father, with certain restrictions, but it takes a whole different kind of person to love a child not your own and be a Dad. Zack flew into rages thinking about a man willing to be a Dad to HIS son, just as he was overcome thinking of Rennie being in another man's arms and bed. While Zack claimed none of the women he was with was Rennie, but there certainly was nothing that led you to believe HE had led a life deprived of sexual satisfaction. Respect for his son? Didn't see any evidence of that.

That worked really well, but hey, his ego got what he wanted and screw the damages. I'm surprised so many women reviewers hated Rennie and thought she should have lived with the knowledge her "husband" was a lying north end of a southbound donkey. Subsume who she was to marry the hot jock that was going to make a lot of money? I should hope not. I loved this book, I'm such a sucker for second chance romances, and Zach he's still a sucker for Rennie, "I wanted you to have my babies.

Is it heredita I loved this book, I'm such a sucker for second chance romances, and Zach he's still a sucker for Rennie, "I wanted you to have my babies. Is it my fault, did I-" The boy has a big heart and I loved that most about him, "he picked her up with his good arm, burying his face in her hair. Promise me you'll help me with this, Ren. I really don't wanna screw up.

I don't want to see another guy's hands on you. She'd done that; she'd pulled his shirt free when they kissed. That's how desperate she'd beento feel his abs, to satisfy herself they were still impossibly defined. He was too perfect, too Apr 28, Annie rated it it was ok Shelves: I wasn't convinced Admittedly, secret babies aren't my favorite trope, but I love sports romances, so I grabbed this when it was free.

The story idea was interesting, but it was hard to accept the excuses the heroine used for keeping the son a secret for 10 years. The author had to dig the heroine out of a hole from the start, and I think that's a ridiculously difficult feat. So often we see the hero come back from seemingly unforgivable discretions, so I kept reading with an open mind. Unfortuna I wasn't convinced Admittedly, secret babies aren't my favorite trope, but I love sports romances, so I grabbed this when it was free.

Unfortunately, I never truly bought it, especially how her friends and family could be so accommodating to her lies. That said, there were really good moments and the story was a sweet one at the end, even if it was a bit too convenient. Romance wise it was good. A bit safe, with minimal heat, but it worked with the story. Writing wise, I found it repetitive.

The same descriptions, similes, phrases used multiple times and the characters' thoughts and reactions often felt cyclical. For such an emotional storyline, I wished there was more depth to the characters and their experiences. So though it was an okay, fast read, I can't see continuing the series. During the eve of her wedding Lauren aka rennie fiancee Zach dials her accidently. Within that moment of him talking to his brother about his impending wedding he said some things that didn't sit well with Rennie and she ended up standing him up for their wedding. Fast forward ten years later Zach is a famous baseball player but is still secretly saddened by the loss of his great love Rennie.

As time go by he finds out and the book remaining time is left when they are going to tell their son Tyler that the man he thought was his father is not. Although I enjoyed the book I felt that Rennie should not have just left him after overhearing one conversation where Zach seems to be drunk and saying things he shouldn't have been saying: With that said I felt the hardship and the pain in both characters eyes when they spoke about their past love hopes and dreams. Enjoyed thoroughly and very fast read.

As parents we all make mistakes. Some are worse than others and sometimes we beat ourselves up and wish we could turn back the hands of time. This book tells one of those stories. Rennie and Zach fall into this category except there's just one problem Once Rennie overheard a conversation Zach had with his brother that broke her heart, she did the only thing she felt she could do. She left Zach at the alter and took their unborn child somew As parents we all make mistakes. She left Zach at the alter and took their unborn child somewhere else to start over.

Flash forward 10 years and let the lessons of parenting begin. Of course we want all of our stories to have happy endings and while I felt this book would have one I was also hoping to get that ending that would just miss the mark. I really enjoyed this book. Things seemed to fall into place in a matter of days or weeks as opposed to months or years. Give the book a chance.

See a Problem?

It's not often that an author hooks me with a character that I initially didn't like. Cheryl Douglas has done just that with the heroine in Strike Out. Douglas took a chance in this book and it paid off; her heroine starts out as tough to love but shows actual growth throughout the story. And what a well written story it was, a happily ever after second chance at love with a hero that will grab your heart early on. You will find yourself emotionally invested in the main couple's journey.

Eve It's not often that an author hooks me with a character that I initially didn't like. Evenly paced with detailed settings and strong secondary characters, this looks like an interesting series. I'm looking forward to the rest. Nov 05, Linda Estes rated it it was amazing. This is the first time I have read a book by Cheryl Douglas and I am hooked on her!!! This story is about a baseball player who is starting out in his career and on eve of his wedding makes some statements about marriage and children not knowing that his girlfriend heard him on his phone.

She leaves him at the alter and goes to Florida knowing she was pregnant with his child. Ten years later she has to make a wish come thru for a sick child and has to meet with him. He finds out that he had a son with her and now he wants her back and his son. Can he make her believe that he has always wanted her?

Can they make a family? Would recommend it to everyone!!! Nothing outstanding, but still entertaining enough for a late night read. The author's writing style is just not my cuppa. There is a line of dialogue, then a paragraph or more of the thought behind that one line. Then the other character responds, another one line of dialogue, and another paragraph explaining why the character made the comment. I lost interest half way through the book, but my curiosity of how Tyler was going to take the truth, the story behind This was okay.

I lost interest half way through the book, but my curiosity of how Tyler was going to take the truth, the story behind the plot, is the only reason I finished.

  3. Strike Out (Texas Titans, #1) by Cheryl Douglas;
  4. This is just my preference, it was still a good story for the basic fluff romance with the HEA, winged unicorns and rainbows. I simply prefer something with more of an edge and less vanilla. Good 18 to early 20 something read. I did not care for the ending. You know what's going to happen but it could have played out better. The situation was so drawn out but everything was wrapped up neatly in a now so quickly at the end. I feel like it should have taken a more time or there needed to be an epilogue to really end it nicely. Other than the end, I thought it was a good.

    Too late to prevent the disappearance of his mother, too late to stop the suicide of his classmate and too late to thwart the abduction of his girlfriend. Zack must defeat his nemesis, Milton Drago, the school bully turned mutant, rescue Jamie Watkins, and impede Echthros from over-running the earth.
