“She’s a nerd.”
“Okay, she’s a flight instructor.”
“He’s a ballplayer.”
“The best that ever was.”
“Technically, you aren’t according to MLB stats.”
“See? Total nerd. She also has no filter.”
“He’s no southern gentlemen.”
“I had one last season to prove my worth.”
“I’d never seen a game.”

“She told me she was a lesbian.”
“But you fell in love with me anyway.”
“Yeah, baby, I totally did.”
A native of Dallas, Kate Stewart now resides in beautiful Charleston, S.C. She lives with her husband of 9 years, Nick, and her naughty beagle, Sadie.
Kate moved to Charleston three weeks after her first visit, dropping her career of 8 years, and declaring the city her creative muse. Since the move in 2010, Kate has written and published four novels including Room 212, Never Me, Loving the White Liar, The Fall, The Mind and The Heart.
Kate writes messy, sexy, angst filled romance books with ‘hard to get’ happy endings because it’s what she loves as a reader. She has a scary addiction to chocolate milk and a deep love for rap music specifically the genius known as Marshall Mathers.
In addition to her addiction to romance, Kate also lets her alter ego take over on occasion and writes erotic suspense under the pen Angelica Chase.
I swear that the "boner" I sport when I see Kate Stewart's name on a cover is not my reason for giving it 5 stars.
Anything But Minor stole a huge chunk of my heart. I love fun spunky heroines. I love cocky arrogant men. But my absolute favorite is when that spunky woman stays true to herself, Alice is an amazing woman. Sheltered to the point of awkward and a certified nerd, she is a force to be reckoned with.
Poor Rafe never had a chance. Alice is a whirlwind, a tornado, a golden shower he never saw coming. (When you get to that scene, it is important to clench your thighs together tightly, because you will want to join Alice. I was laughing so hard I almost did.)
I think my favorite part about reading fiction, romance, and well romantic comedy, is that the more honest it is the better it works. The honest feelings/emotions- they all effect us one way or another.
I surprised Kate when I told her I had tears pouring down my face, but I wasn't surprised. Why? Because like Rafe, I love the game. The game in this case is the rollercoaster ride of emotion hidden between awkward encounters and awesomely dorky facts no one outside of trivial pursuit will ever use.
So in short, it's an awesome book. I had an absolute blast reading it. Now I must go wallow in self pity because I finished it and have nothing to look forward to.
Sigh, I hope that we can get her to write Andy's story because he's an amazing friend and a pretty super guy all around.
