Quit Your Pitchin’ by Lani Lynn Vale Review



What’s wrong with my butt?

She means those words to be directed toward the woman beside her, not him. But he can’t stop himself from answering. Not when her ass is the most magnificent thing he’s seen in his life.

Apparently, answering her with ‘not a damn thing’ wasn’t what she was expecting.

She likely wasn’t expecting the baseball she took to the face at his next at bat, either.

All it takes is one ill-fated foul ball, and George Hoffman, Lumberjacks center fielder, falls head over heels in love with Wrigley Field—and yes, that is her real name.

From that point forward, George and Wrigley fall into a fast whirlwind love that ends with them eloping to Vegas. And he has his potty mouth, titty bar owning, pain in the ass grandmother to thank for it.

Not that he’s complaining or anything.

Who wouldn’t want to be married to a woman that made his heart race like he was in the final game of the World Series?

The only problem is trying to convince her of that.


I’ve read all the books that Lani Lynn Vale has written, and the way she takes on the love stories between everyday heroes and the women who capture their hearts is always an exciting, enjoyable reading experience for me. She’s written about bikers, paramedics, firemen and cops, and I’ve loved them all. Quit Your Pitchin’ is Vale’s second novel in the sports romance trope, and she hit a home run with this baseball-themed love story, hooking me in from page one and leaving me eager for more.

I loved George and Wrigley! They had instant chemistry that just leapt from the page. Furious George is known as a bit of a hothead, but he was so sweet with Wrigley. Wrigley was a curvy with a great sense of humor and just enough attitude to catch his eye the moment he laid them on her. Right from the start, this couple’s story drew me in and held all of my attention—I positively devoured it and didn’t want to put it down. Vale’s sense of humor is always present in all of her novels, and it was plentiful in Quit Your Pitchin’. The back-and-forth banter between Parts and Sway was on point and, along with some combustible chemistry between them, made this a story I could not read fast enough.

Quit Your Pitchin’ was a fun, flirty and feisty sports romance with characters I loved and set in yet another fictional world concocted by Vale that I adored. With tons of interesting side characters whose stories I am anxious for, I cannot wait until Vale takes us back to the Lumberjacks world. She has penned another winner in her second baseball-themed romcom, and I cannot wait for more! Quit Your Pitchin’ by Lani Lynn Vale gets five smooches from me!
