On the DL by Laramie Briscoe (The MVP Duet #1)

On the DL (The MVP Duet Book 1) by [Briscoe, Laramie]4 Stars

On the DL is the first book in Laramie Briscoe’s new duet, The MVP Duet. It releases today and ends on a cliffhanger, but fortunately the second book, MVP, releases in just two weeks. I haven’t seen a release done like this before, and I really like it. So often I read a book and then have to wait a year or longer to find out what happens next. When that happens I always forget some of the important details from the last book, and it takes a while before I get back in the rhythm of the book. I’m so grateful that I won’t have that problem with this one.

High school sweethearts? Second chance romance? Professional sports romance? This book checks off so many of my favorite plots in romances that I think it was almost impossible for me not to swoon while reading it. And Slater was just so gosh darn sweet. I can’t wait to see what happens next for Malone and Slater.

I received an advance reader copy of this book that I have chosen to review.

A
second-chance romance as scorching hot as a baseball diamond in August.
Slater “Savage” Harlow

Winning the MVP award for the Birmingham Bandits last year was the highlight of
my baseball career. It was the culmination of childhood dreams, calculated
adult decisions, sacrifice, and a hell of a lot of focus. Tearing my ACL in
spring training? Not what I expected at all.

Now I’m home, in small town Georgia, rehabbing in the comfort of my own home,
with people I know. I’m connecting with friends I haven’t had time to talk to
in years, spending days at home with my parents, and getting to watch my little
brother play minor league baseball.

What I don’t expect is to see Malone Fulcher walking into Del’s Diner one
morning while having my coffee and egg whites.

She’s old flame, the one who got away, and the woman I compare all others to.

Malone Fulcher

Spending the summer in my hometown wasn’t what I had planned, but it’s what I
need. Recovering from a hard year, both personally and professionally, I need
to reconnect with who I am. When my mom encouraged me to come home and do some
soul searching, I can’t say no.

Memories are all over this small town, from the Baptist Church to the east
field on my parents farm, to the diner. On my second day in town, I decide to
go in, memories be damned.

I lost my breath as soon as I saw “Savage” Harlow sitting alone at a
booth. Our eyes lock, my heart flutters, and my hands shake – all the same way
they did back in high school. But back then we couldn’t make it work. Going our
separate ways to differing colleges, we decided we weren’t meant to be.

A decade later, as soon as our eyes meet, I’m wondering if we were right,
because those green eyes of his do nothing but take me to a past that I can see
being my future.

Author’s Note: This does end in somewhat of a cliffhanger!
