Title: Home Run King
Genre: RomCom Standalone
Release Date: February 23, 2018
My life was what country songs are made of: my Granny died, my girlfriend broke up with me, I knocked up her cousin, and I was inducted into the Major League Hall of Fame. Yup…just like every country song I’ve ever heard.
But let me start over…
My name is Gage Nix. That’s all you need to know.
Actually, there’s a lot more to Gage than meets the eye. My name’s Katie Crisp, and I had a front row seat and the inside scoop.
In a moment of grief and desperation, I allowed the Home Run King to…well, hit a home run on my diamond. He not only knocked it out of the park, but he also knocked me up.
Raising two babies—the one I was carrying, and Gage—wasn’t what I signed up for. But he gave me no choice. I only wish I hadn’t waited until the end of the season to see that he was my MVP.
Oh, and the only hall of fame he’s ever been inducted into is his own.
Rating: 5 stars
Homerun King by Stella lives up to its name. For me, the authors who make up Stella hit a homerun with Gage and Katie’s story. I enjoyed the slow burn between the two main characters.
Gage Nix, also known as the homerun king, is a star when he’s on the field yet away from it, he’s a mess. Having said that, I need to clarify, you can’t help but love him. He’s gorgeous, hilarious, irreverent, and hiding a heart of gold underneath it all.
His love interest, Katie Crisp, is the home health nurse for Gage’s beloved granny is not a fan of Gage except for when she is. Every time she thinks he’s said or done something to make her hate him, he counters it by making he melt.
When granny passes away, the two come together in their grief and the result is the two of them are tied together for life.
Stella does a fabulous job of bringing the two together. The characters show incredible growth and by the end of the story, Gage is devoted to Katie and she can’t imagine life without him. Throw in a completely adorable baby, laugh out loud dialogue, and you’ve got a 5 star read that is definitely a homerun.
Best Selling Authors Leddy Harper and Stephie Walls met on a street corner in Savannah, Georgia in 2015, where they quickly formed a bond over book boyfriends and cheap wine.
After discovering the two best friends shared a brain, their alter ego, Stella was born. After all, when you put two romance authors together…you’re gonna get something Stella!
