Definitely not what I had expected! But in a good way! Calling the Curveball is the first book in The Lawson Family Series by Tracey Cramer-Kelly. Jamie Lawson was headed to the Major League when a tragic accident happened, which ended his baseball career and killed his wife. Kira Walker recently went through a horrible divorce and is staying with her sister for the summer to get a fresh new start. There was definitely lust at first sight but after Kira got the courage to ask Jamie out things definitely went a whole other direction. Instead of this being a “summer fling,” this turned in to something much deeper. The walls each one has built up from their own pasts start to crumble and neither one of them really know how to deal with it. This isn’t the typical romance. This is much more realistic and much more raw. I was impressed that the author decided to not write full sex scenes. Not every romance novel needs it and this is definitely one that did not need it. What she did was perfect for this story. I loved all the characters and the twists and turns that came about. Kira was fun, feisty and very head strong. It was very refreshing. This story was an emotional roller coaster so make sure to have the tissues handy because there will be lots and lots of tears. All in all, I loved this story! I could not put this book down! Definite page turner that you don’t want to miss out on! I cannot wait for the next book in the series!
