Title: The Perfect Pitch
Series: Indianapolis Lightning #1
Author: Samantha Lind
Genre: Contemporary Sports Romance

Release Date: February 20, 2020

The sound of the gavel crashing down, 
Has my life flashing before my eyes. 
Learning to play ball. 
Falling in love, 
Marrying an incredible woman and starting a family
Becoming a starting pitcher for the Indianapolis Lightning. 
Everything I ever wanted… Until I struck out
The same success that gave me the life I dreamed of, 
Took it all away. 
I’d do anything for a second chance, 
Even throw the perfect pitch. 
A signature on a piece of paper…
It binds you to someone, or it can tear them away. 
It broke my heart to file the papers. 
Gutted me to sign them. 
But this isn’t the life I envisioned.
Tired of competing to be his number one priority,
I had to walk away from the man I loved.
I needed to be strong for our girls, for me.
Life goes on.
People can change. 
Now he wants a second chance. 
But can I forgive the man who threw it all away, and trust that he won’t do it

My Review…

Indianapolis Lightning – Book One

The end is just the beginning of this new story and a new series by Samantha Lind.

This is the story of the marriage between Derrick and Jillian Smyth. It’s about love and family and sometimes having to hit absolute rock bottom to see the light of the future in front of you!

This story is the beginning of what I am sure to be a fantastic new series about the Indianapolis Lightning baseball team!

I love the simplicity of the story and the complexities of the marriage.  Ms. Lind has a wonderful talent for taking the normal world and turning it extraordinal!

I admired the determination of Derek in his resoluteness of getting what he wants.  He is a star pitcher for the Lightning and fame sometimes can bring the downfall of a person.  He finally puts his family to the forefront and it’s fun to read the way he goes about wooing Jillian.

Jillian is grace under pressure, she has been burned and she is slow and steady in moving forward.  Her love for Derek never waivers.  Her trust in him is fragile but deep down she knows what she wants and will do what she has to for her kids and her husband.

Way to go Samantha!! I cannot wait to see where this new team of characters takes us in the future!
