    4 HeartsThis was another fun read in the Shifter Hardball series Told in the dual POV s of our resident second and third basemen for the Preston Predators, we meet Tucker Wilde a wild dog and Dixon Foxx a gray fox as the teammates fight to win a game We know from go that Dixon has had a thing for his teammate since the gray fox saw the wild dog take his position on the diamond at second base But Dixon has always known Tucker was straight with his revolving door of women and self regulate 4 HeartsThis was another fun read in the Shifter Hardball series Told in the dual POV s of our resident second and third basemen for the Preston Predators, we meet Tucker Wilde a wild dog and Dixon Foxx a gray fox as the teammates fight to win a game We know from go that Dixon has had a thing for his teammate since the gray fox saw the wild dog take his position on the diamond at second base But Dixon has always known Tucker was straight with his revolving door of women and self regulated himself to the friend teammate zone But when things go south for Tucker, it s the friend in Dixon, the caring what happens to his teammate that may possibly get him everything he s ever wanted Tucker loves playing baseball and being part of the Predators The team has become his home and his family which is important since Tucker is a shifter without a pack But, Tucker is slipping and his game is off When Coach Banner calls him on it and benches him from his starting position until he can earn it back, Tucker takes it hard and so does his girlfriend Well, his girlfriend takes it like an opportunistic bitch, but I m glad she s gone Anyway Tucker decides to drown his sorrows and after far too many drinks even for a shifter with a fast metabolism, he s rescued by his friend and teammate Dixon who decides the wild dog needs to sleep it off at his house But when a simple request for keys opens Tucker s eyes to something he never thought of, we get one hell of a hot night I won t spoil the night for you but I will just say there is ass virginity lost, there is one man who is born to be a power bottom, there is KNOTTING, alpha behavior, begging and it s so fucking hot All of it If this wasn t shifters I might have an issue with the first night Tucker and Dixon spend together but shifters and the inner beast that rule the men in this series get a pass They get a pass and get a pat on the butt because that was ridiculously hot I don t care that Tucker s gate only swung one way before he finally notices Dixon and his inner beast begs to be claimed By the way, the shifters having chats with the inner beasts is one of my favorite things about this series It cracks me up when they talk to their beasts and then get all snarky and argue with them So, when the morning after brings in new light and Dixon wrapped around Tucker, he has a hard time with this new side to his sexuality and runs farther than a shot to the gap He can admit he loved what he did with Dixon but doesn t quite understand never being attracted to a man before and how all of the sudden he and his beast were sitting up and panting like it was mating season At least Tucker has an understanding team, a very understanding friend in Dixon and two mated pairs on the team with one who is bisexual It was great to see Ram and Wiley again as well as Trigger and Graham I like that Tucker was able to talk to Ram about being bisexual while also doing a bit of research on it It was clear that he was sexually attracted to Dixon and liked being his friend but getting his mind wrapped around the fact that he isn t as straight as he thought he was would take a bit of time It s a damn good thing that Dixon has wanted Tucker long enough that after getting a taste of him, he ll wait for Tucker go unfuck his shit and decide what he wants Both Tucker and Dixon had less than stellar childhoods Tucker s mom was kicked out of her pack because Tucker was a hybrid and Dixon has a famous baseball player for a dad so he ate and slept with the diamond The bond between the shifters of having what each wanted while lacking, fuels the friendship and adds to the slow burn to the teammates being mated This really was a fun read The shifters on the Predators are always a blast to hang out with and loved the moments they would all shift and chase each other around the field Tucker is lover of pranks and he brings fun to the team while letting them remember playing the game is supposed to be fun but that doesn t mean Tucker isn t ready and willing to work his ass off to earn his starting position back When Dixon offers to help him and they develop a pre practice and pregame ritual, the shifters begin to get even closer as friends and Tucker starts to take his walls down piece by piece This does have fast and hot kind of one night stand in the beginning of the book but from there I would call thisof a slow burn We get Tucker with his new bisexuality and really taking in what that means to him and we know that Dixon is there and will be there when Tucker is ready Switch Hitter that title implies exactly what it should both on and off the field Tucker and Dixon have a great friends to lovers to mates romance that really shows that, fate is a fickle thing, but sometimes she does nail it on the head.

    Shifter Hardball offers up a fun world where limited world building presents a society aware of shifters, accepting of shifters, and willing to make allowances for shifters I loved the first two books in the sequence for their attention to detail in regards to the actual sport of baseball as well as their heat level alongside the development of their main romance storyline I have to admit I was let down by Switch Hitter as the last or latest depending on whether or notof these will be Shifter Hardball offers up a fun world where limited world building presents a society aware of shifters, accepting of shifters, and willing to make allowances for shifters I loved the first two books in the sequence for their attention to detail in regards to the actual sport of baseball as well as their heat level alongside the development of their main romance storyline I have to admit I was let down by Switch Hitter as the last or latest depending on whether or notof these will be written in the future addition to the series Tucker Wilde is a wild dog shifter with a strange pedigree which makes him self conscious, secretive, and socially aggressive as he tries to compensate for what he sees as a flaw in himself He s also the one most likely to start pranks or play games with the team I enjoyed his sense of humor a great deal I was interested in his family issues and wanted to see how or if his problems with his mother would be resolved I just didn t really feel his connection to Dixon as a romance storyline Dixon is presented as a natural top and a grey fox shifter who seems to have alpha tendencies, yet he s really passive in every aspect of his life except the bedroom which did feel slightly forced to me at times He s got his own issues with his father since his dad was a baseball great who wants him to live up to the family name He s always known he was gay and is an out and proud man He is presented as having a crush or a desire for Tucker from the beginning I found it slightlybelievable he was in lust or love with Tucker as he was a gay man interested in another man A good portion of the book focuses on what it means to be bisexual or whether or not a person can be gay for you which is a common trope in fiction I thought the consideration was nice I liked the way the author handled Tucker s concerns about himself I enjoyed the times he and Dixon dated without any pressure for sex a lotthan their sex scenes, in all honesty, but I really wasn t as invested in their romance as I was in the first two couples in the series There are plenty of revisits to the couples from the first two books as they re all on the same team The book is a solid addition to the series It simply wasn t what I was expecting or looking for myself at the time I read it or after having read the first two in the sequence I d recommend this one to people who did enjoy the first two books or people who are interested in stories focused on a character coming to terms with their sexuality

    I started this book because the blurb caught my attention The open shifter baseball team is a great premise It is a team of all shifters and they are a pack They look out for each as if they are a family and I really enjoyed reading about the whole team as well as Dixon and Tucker.So going into this story I was looking forward to see how these men lived and worked together Tucker s personality is great, he is the second basemen and the joker of the group He is also the ladies man and doesn I started this book because the blurb caught my attention The open shifter baseball team is a great premise It is a team of all shifters and they are a pack They look out for each as if they are a family and I really enjoyed reading about the whole team as well as Dixon and Tucker.So going into this story I was looking forward to see how these men lived and worked together Tucker s personality is great, he is the second basemen and the joker of the group He is also the ladies man and doesn t want to settle down Dixon is the third basemen and an open gay player He has wanted Tucker since he came to the team but knowing he is straight he settles for being friends.One night at a team party Tucker gets drunk because he just got dumped by his latest girlfriend and demoted from the starting line up Dixon takes him home and they have a hot night of sex The next day Tucker doesn t know what he is feeling and wants to go back to being friends with Dixon As far as Tucker knows he is straight and has never found a man attractive so he is confused about what happened Dixon doesn t want to be friends any because he wantsfrom Tucker Tucker fights his feeling for Dixon and is also trying to figure out if he is guy or bi or what Dixon is giving Tucker time to figure out who and what he wants but in the meantime he is helping Tucker get back his baseball groove by coaching him Through all this Tucker s feelings grow for Dixon and he knows he has to figure out what he wants or could lose out on possibly the best thing that could happen to him The chemistry between Tucker and Dixon is hot even before Tucker came to the realization that he loves Dixon Once their feelings are out in the open Tucker knows he made the right choice I enjoyed the pull Tucker felt towards Dixon thehe got to know him but I think the I love you s came a little too fast I would have liked to see the relationship grow slower once Tucker decided to go for it All in all I liked the story and will definitely read the next book in this series ARC provided by Dreamspinner Press in exchange for an honest review Reviewed by Jodi from Alpha Book Club

And, that s all I m going to say about thatgrinningThat being said..I also believe that it s pace was very slow, and, it could have benefited from less of certain areas I did like reading all of it, I really did, as previously mentioned, but, I just wish that it wasevenly spaced out I wish there had beenscenes involving actual shifting, as the theme implies, possibly withangst, because there was very little angst, and that which did exist, was resolved rather quickly In addition to this, dare I say, a slightly less focus on the many baseball games, the various repetition of certain aspects of the plot, and, some of the detailed shenanigans One thing that I would have absolutely loved to have seenof, was the bond, the love, that connection that Tucker and Dixon clearly have, as the bonding of mates goes bone deep Every single time I read about their bond and their definite chemistry, even though it was sparse, I still found myself bawling like a baby because it was just so beautiful And, that s what makes a bonded pair Whether they are male or female I would have loved to have seenof their squishy andI need to be near youkind of loveSwitch Hitter is just one of those stories that will grab, and, somehow hold onto you, with it s hot and sexy shifters in a plot that will tug at your heart strings, and will leave you with a new found knowledge of baseball, that will have you wanting .

    I really enjoy a good lighthearted read with little drama Switch Hitter was exactly that There was little drama involved in this read but there was a lot of baseball, practical jokes, and some team building Cheyenne Meadows created a lighthearted read with a lot of amusement involved The only drama in this book was not truly dwelled upon There was a small amount of it but the drama was handled in true Dixon and Tucker fashion.Dixon and Tucker are both shifters and both play for a shifter ba I really enjoy a good lighthearted read with little drama Switch Hitter was exactly that There was little drama involved in this read but there was a lot of baseball, practical jokes, and some team building Cheyenne Meadows created a lighthearted read with a lot of amusement involved The only drama in this book was not truly dwelled upon There was a small amount of it but the drama was handled in true Dixon and Tucker fashion.Dixon and Tucker are both shifters and both play for a shifter baseball team So the fact that they are shifters is non grata Neither is the fact that Dixon is gay What is a problem for Dixon is, he is attracted to Tucker and Tucker has been nothing but straight since they have met Dixon has pretty much fallen head over hills in love with Tucker but he will never tell him because he does not want to lose his friendship.On the night that Tucker was pretty much benched by the coach for not living up to his potential, his girlfriend at the time dumps him because being with someone that is benched is not the ideal person for her Tucker decides that it would be ok to proceed to drink his worries away and that is how Fixon finds him.Dixon knowing that Tucker is upset and a lot drunk takes matters into his own hands and decides to drag him out of the party they are attending and get him home and sober before letting him leave Little does Dixon or Tucker realize this night is going to be a night that will set all sorts of changes in motion and neither of their lives will be the same After a night of what starts out helping his best friend end up in a safe place to sleep off his drunkenness turns into a night of complete exploration of one another and the hottest sexy times of either of their lives, will Tucker wake the next morning to regret what he instigated or will he accept what hapened between them and figure out where to go from there.I truly enjoyed this read It is full of humor and pranks It was full of mated pairs and two very exciting men trying to find their way in a confusing time in their lives Cheyenne made this read so enjoyable that I will be going back and reading the books in this series since this is the first in I have read I look forward to reading future books in this series Amazing read.Was given this galley copy for free for an open and honest review

    Tucker Wilde is one of the best second basemen in the all shifter professional baseball league Or at least he thought he was until a rookie showed up and claimed his spot in the starting lineup And things with his girlfriend seem to have run their course But he also spent the previous night in the throes of passion with one of his teammates something completely out of character for a straight man like Tucker Dixon Foxx must admit he enjoyed his night with Tucker Wilde he d wanted the man e Tucker Wilde is one of the best second basemen in the all shifter professional baseball league Or at least he thought he was until a rookie showed up and claimed his spot in the starting lineup And things with his girlfriend seem to have run their course But he also spent the previous night in the throes of passion with one of his teammates something completely out of character for a straight man like Tucker Dixon Foxx must admit he enjoyed his night with Tucker Wilde he d wanted the man ever since he first met him But he is less pleased that Tucker views it as a drunken mistake that will never happen again And although Dixon is a star player himself, his heart s never really been in it, a heart that he risks being broken if he can t either get through to Tucker or find a way to move on But moving on is hard for both of them since they still have to see each other every dayBeing someone you re not can be dissatisfying and challenging But so many times we force ourselves to meet what we believe to be the expectations of others in our life, all the while robbing ourselves of chances at true happiness And sometimes those expectations can become so internalized that we don t even consider that we may want or need something different out of life These are issues that both Tucker and Dixon must face, albeit in different ways and for different reasons But if they re wise, they may be able to help each other go through it together

    This is a book in a series about an all shifter professional baseball league I think to really, really love this you d have to love baseball, too On the one hand the shifter stuff is immensely cute they have some characteristics from their animals while as human which I love and they are unique shifters not just wolves which I also love On the other hand they don t shift a lot and they don t have that hard core mine immediate mate pull that I adore in shifter books.There is a lot This is a book in a series about an all shifter professional baseball league I think to really, really love this you d have to love baseball, too On the one hand the shifter stuff is immensely cute they have some characteristics from their animals while as human which I love and they are unique shifters not just wolves which I also love On the other hand they don t shift a lot and they don t have that hard core mine immediate mate pull that I adore in shifter books.There is a lot of humor and sex in these stories and this is no different I think maybe there was evensex in this one It felt like the main way outside of baseball the two MCs connected.Baseball is also prominent in the story so if you re a fan I think this will really tick some boxes for you.While I really enjoyed the character of Dixon he was fun and funny, I never warmed to Tucker as much He wasn t a great friend and only later became a decent lover partner.Besides the sex and baseball we have a bit of prejudice and a bit of a career crises to deal with, but this is a low angst book for the most part.All in all this is a fairly low angst, GFY, baseball story that I think fans of the author, the sport and shifters will all find something to enjoy.3.25 of 5 stars
