Bowled: Facing the Yorker of Love (To Love a Sportsman Book 1) by Pamela Q. Fernandes – Review by Jessica Leombruno

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Bowled by Pamela Q. Fernandes was my first book by this author and I’m looking forward to reading more by this author. This was a wonderfully written story of humor and missteps with sassy attitude thrown in.

We all know that everything you put on Twitter can and will be used against you at some point. Rose found that out when she posted “Did Mathew Anderson really need another home in NYC” Never did Rose think that would lead to a trip to NYC to meet Mathew.

I like anything to do British culture so I was interested in learning little about cricket; I think I will stick to American Baseball (LOL). I highly recommended this story to anyone looking for an enjoyable sports romance.

4-stars

Bowled: Facing the Yorker of Love by Pamela Q. Fernandes is the first book in her To Love A Sportsman Series. This was my first book by this author but I’m sure it won’t be my last as I did really enjoy this book. The storyline was dynamic, and I loved the amount of supporting characters. I enjoyed all the detail that this author put into the story, there was so much that I was able to picture everything playing out in my mind.

Although, I will admit that at first I had a harder time getting into it as I found the storyline jumped around quite a bit, but I was able to get use to the writing style and ended up following along easily enough.

I look forward to reading more from this author in the future!

Bowled by Pamela Q. Fernandes a five-star read that should be a six. This is number one in the To love a sports man series and I can’t wait for more. This was such a great story, I loved the fact that it was about Cricket, something I secretly adore (and not just for the cute white outfits). Mathew Anderson wasn’t always someone I liked, but when I got to know the real him, not just the façade he shows us just how special he is. The second chance romance in this story is believable and honest, it shows us how beautiful life can be when we need it to be, it also shows us life isn’t always perfect and sometimes it needs a good shake. Rose was full of surprises for me, she made me feel a lot more than I imagined she would.

Bowled was a lovely, sweet romance story that I thoroughly enjoyed! I have read stories by this author previously so I was looking forward to reading more from her again and I wasn’t disappointed. The story had the pace and flow that I have come to love from this author as well as wonderful characters who are both likeable and realistic. It never takes me long at all to become absorbed in what I am reading from Ms Fernandes. I liked that both of the characters had their own stories to tell, both have been burned in the past and I knew as soon as that first initial contact was made, albeit with a pretty nasty tweet, these two would be perfect for each other! They did frustrate me at times but I couldn’t help but find myself rooting for them the whole way through.
Bowled was a really enjoyable story that I would definitely recommend to other readers! As always I will be looking forward to reading more from this author again in the future!

Fernandes does a wonderful job with this sports romance. Admittedly my knowledge of cricket isn’t vast but I feel as though I have a greater appreciation for it after this story. This was simply a sweet romance that in my opinion is perfect for my next lazy afternoon on the couch. Simply loved it and had difficulty putting it down before I finished it.

Bowled: Facing the Yorker of Love by Pamela Q. Fernandes is the first book in the To Love a Sportsman series. Mathew is a successful captain of a cricket team who has it all until a false accusation. Rose is a teacher who has been burned in the love department. Will the two make it work?
I liked the story and enjoyed the interaction between Mathew and Rose. I am not familiar with cricket and so some of the terminology was foreign to me but I was a to get past it and enjoy the story. I also enjoyed the story took place in several locations. I like stories where there is a background which contributes to the storyline. I enjoyed this and am looking forward to reading more in this series.

This is not my first book by this author and will definitely not be my last. Although this wasn’t my favorite of those I’ve read it was still written in the way I have come to enjoy by this author.

I’m not usually drawn to the sports genre and then throw in cricket and I was totally lost on that part so just concentrated on the characters. I really enjoyed reading about Mathew and Rose and there were some parts that seemed kind of predictable and then there were parts that broke my heart.

I will definitely be looking for more from this author and do highly recommend this book especially to those that like the sports kind of atmosphere. Its a quick read and flows smoothly.

Bowled: Facing the Yorker of Love (To Love a Sportsman Book 1) by Pamela Q. Fernandes. This is a new to me author. I really enjoyed this book, who doesn’t love sports and a sexy guy. Throw in a quirky, funny woman and you have one good book. This book is about Mathew and Rose. He is a cricket player and she is a teacher. What started at a joke tweet, turned into jokingly flirting, turns into Rose traveling to stay with him for a “visit”. They are both coming off of emotional and difficult times. I enjoyed this book and can not wait to see what else is in story.

Bowled: Facing The Yorker Of Love is the first book in the To Love A Sportsman series by Pamela Q. Fernandes. I had not previously read any of this author’s work but I do love a good sports romance so decided to give this a try. Although I have read many sports romances, I have never read one centred around the sport of cricket. Thankfully I’m a lover of cricket and incidentally I’m writing this review while watching England play at the world Cup.
Hero of this story is Mathew Anderson, captain of the England cricket team. Having been accused of domestic abuse by his previous girlfriend, he’s currently keeping women at arm’s length. Well that is until he receives a tweet from Rose Cavendish which forces him to take action.
I absolutely loved the interactions between Mathew and Rose. There is an instant attraction between the 2 but both have severe trust issues since their previous relationships. Rose is a feisty character that i loved but she also came across as very vulnerable at times.
I loved Mathew’s characters but there were a few occasions that I’d loved to have given him a kick up the backside. I hated that he allowed dinner guests to speak badly of her. He lost serious brownie points at that point in the story.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more of this series.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Bowled: Facing the Yorker of Love was a fun little read that I scooped up and devoured in just one afternoon. I normally adore all things sports romance, odd since I’m not a major sports fan, but something about them just has all the right stuff to make a delectable read. I have read a few of Pamela Q. Fernandes’s works in the past but must say, this has to be my favorite of hers. You can see the growth in her writing and this was just a much smoother flow than the last few of hers I have read.

Rose and Matthew both have been through the wringer of bad relationships. Neither of them saw a fresh new romance on the horizon but when they meet and things start to fall into place the connection and attraction is undeniable. Will they be able to weather all that life throws at their new relationship? I enjoyed these two and reading all about the adventures they find themselves in. I am looking forward to seeing what will come in book two as well!
