Reigning beauty queen Samantha Winger is launching her pet project, a music program for kids. All she has to do is follow the pageant’s rules—no smoking, drinking, or “cavorting” in public.

That’s fine, until D.J. Thomas—God’s gift to baseball—throws her a wild pitch. He slams her in an interview, and the video goes viral. Sam’s no shrinking violet. She parlays D.J.’s apology into a national T.V. appearance—and a very unexpected, very public kiss.

Soon, paparazzi catch the couple in a steamy make-out session, and Sam’s music program is on the block. The blazing hot relationship is threatened even more when D.J.’s son begs to trade in Little League for music class.

Can Sam and D.J. sizzle past the sour notes and find their perfect pitch?


My review:

Perfect Pitch is the first volume in author Mindy Klasky’s Diamond Brides Series and threw one hell of a home run.  I loved this book!

Beauty queen Samantha Winger had given up a lot for this title.  She had to pretty much act like a complete vanilla angel in public, lost a lot of her friends because she couldn’t go out and party, and certainly wasn’t allowed to go out on dates and be caught kissing anyone.  You’d think it was the 1940’s with the rules this pageant had in place.  But it was all worth it when she’s able to get her music education program into the local schools.  She had become the person she was thanks to her love of music and she wanted other kids to be able to experience what she had.  Things were going smoothly until baseball star D.J. Thomas belittles her on national TV.  Ok, he didn’t exactly belittle her, just her title.  He shows up a day later with an apology and she sees this as one hall of a golden opportunity….to help get her music program some TV exposure.  Only problem was that from their first introduction, there are some serious sparks between the beauty queen and the baseball star.  A problem because she couldn’t act on in while reigning as queen.  It was written in the rules.  And when they start spending time together, and are caught by the paparazzi kissing, her time as queen may be over.  But like a run of strikeouts that bring the losing team back from being down to win the game, can D.J. make everything ok?

Oh man, the amount of heat packed into this story was positively delectable! Both Sam and D.J. were likeable characters from two pretty different backgrounds and with two pretty different views on things. But you know what they say about opposites attracting, right?  Thanks to a baseball team road trip, their relationship was able to grow over hours long phone calls and that made their story even more special and believable.  They learned one another inside out and backwards in those phone calls.  They also had some sexy convos that I’m sure would have any eavesdropper blushing! Of course, it wasn’t all happy moments for this unlikely couple and they have more than one obstacle to overcome.  But like all good love stories, they are able to make it all work out in the end.

Thank you, Mindy, for a sexy, sweet read! I will definitely be looking forward to the next in this series!
