Review: Long Relief

Long Relief
Long Relief by Abigail Barnette
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The only reason this book didn’t get 5 stars is because it was shorter than I wanted and I needed more! I’m a Cancer… I fall in love fast, especially when there are great characters in front of me. Despite the fact that the book was short, it was great and I’m told that the series will continue so that’s awesome too.

It’s pretty clear that I’m a sucker for Michigan writers and Michigan stories. This book was, of course, both. I absolutely loved all of the details that Barnette put into the book without it being overly descriptive. For example on opening day of the season the fans in the crowd had mittens on. That’s a total Michigan thing and it’s not rare for it to actually snow on opening day around here. Little tidbits like that were thrown in throughout the book and made it great.

The relationship between the two main characters was adorable. What girl wouldn’t love to be faced with a childhood crush once she’s all grown up? I adored the way Barnette wrote Chris’ character too. He’s an aging baseball player who is aware he’s getting older and his body has limitations it didn’t use to have and yet, he’s still extremely sexy and knows it. (Damn it… I totally didn’t mean to reference LMFAO there. But hey, it’s true!)

I can’t wait for the next installment of the Hardball Series!
