Blog Tour - Earning a Ring (More Than a Game, #4) by Kristina Matthews - 4star Ringing Endorsement

More Than a Game #4

Lyrical Shine

4star Ringing Endorsement. I have not read any of the books in this series and I did not feel as if I was missing anything. I must say that I was intrigued enough to want to go back and read the other books from this series.

 Bryce and Rachel had chemistry, fire, and passion amongst themselves and for the professions they have chosen. Even with a past between them their story truly begins here. Bryce in a slump and Rachel in a quandary over recently received news.

There was a lot if inner dialogue the two carried within. There needed to be more interaction of conversation between them. I felt if there was more open communication between them there would have been no distrust, mistrust, or hurt feeling from lack of communication.

Mathews blends a rich story with baseball, playboy, reporter, publicity (bad/good), saucy redhead, and growth. There was much here to keep you reading all the way to the end.

While others from previous books play a role. It is not such a huge focus on it that you feel you are missing something. 

With all things said I would recommend reading this one to continue the series. If you can begin the series with the first book and watch the world around you grown and change with subtle changes with each new addition to the series.

Blurb

For Rachel Parker, covering the San Francisco Goliaths is the perfect opportunity to launch her career as a serious reporter. But she didn’t bargain on Bryce Baxter, the team’s star shortstop, tempting her more non-professional aspirations. After tearing up the base paths with him, she finds herself with a little problem, and Bryce might be the only man who can save the game.

Bryce Baxter should be living the dream. His team just won the World Series and he just signed the multi-year contract of his career. But his field of dreams has been overtaken by a fiery redheaded reporter, who’s bearing a news flash that will change both of their lives forever…

Author Info
Kristina Mathews doesn't remember a time when she didn't have a book in her hand. Or in her head. But it wasn't until she turned forty that she confessed the reason the laundry never made it out of the dryer was because she was busy writing.

While she resigned from teaching with the arrival of her second son, she's remained an educator in some form. As a volunteer, parent club member or para educator, she finds the most satisfaction working with emergent and developing readers, helping foster confidence and a lifelong love of books.

Kristina lives in Northern California with her husband of more than twenty years, two sons and a black lab. A veteran road tripper, amateur renovator and sports fanatic. She hopes to one day travel all 3,073 miles of Highway 50 from Sacramento, CA to Ocean City, MD, replace her carpet with hardwood floors and serve as a “Ball Dudette” for the San Francisco Giants.
