It’s another season of Renegade baseball and, as they say, the boys are back in town. All except for all-star pitcher, Hawk Sinclair, who has returned to his hometown and back to the ranch he grew up on to rehab after shoulder surgery.
Real estate agent, Bellamy Patrick, feels like she’s failing at being a single mom. Her son is having a hard time fitting in and she’s hoping that playing baseball will be the answer. When he doesn’t make the team, she’s willing to do anything to help him... except that! And that’s exactly what the little league coach expects.
When Hawk’s asked to coach a team of misfit kids, he balks...until he sees how the program is run and how boys are left out. That’s when he knows he has no choice but to do the right thing and turn these boys into the players he knows they can be.
I’m a huge fan of Heidi McLaughlin! Read most of her works and have loved her stories and characters but was disappointed with Hawk. It was like she mailed this one in. Characters were not very interesting, lacking any real depth and the story was weak, predictable, and underdeveloped. Her writing seemed rushed and uninspired, which surprised me. Previous works we’re always engaging and enjoyable. As I read I was hoping the story would go somewhere unique and special but it didn’t, at all.
Hope she puts more time and effort into her next work because this one seemed like she had to get it out to pay the rent.
