The most anticipated J. Sterling release of the year is finally here! You’ve waited years to meet Jack Carter’s son and the wait is over! Strap in and enjoy the ride.
Chance Carter is the son of local baseball legend, Jack Carter. Now in his junior year at Fullton State, Chance is facing challenges he never saw coming. Failing a class will stop his draft season short, making him ineligible to play and pushing his goal of professional baseball even further away.
In steps Danika, a mouthy tutor from New York, who only wants to help him pass his class… NOT get in his pants. But try telling that to Chance. He doesn’t trust girls and he definitely doesn’t trust his new tutor. A lifetime growing up as a Carter taught him that.
But Danika has issues of her own. After an incident that happened last year, she doesn’t trust athletes and wants nothing to do with them. And Chance is no exception.
The fireworks explode as the two try to deny the chemistry between them and family secrets are revealed. Chance doesn’t know how to give up on something he wants and he’s decided he wants Danika. There’s just one problem… she has a boyfriend she has no intention of breaking up with.
How can he have her when she belongs to someone else?
I’m a New York Times and USA Today best selling author of over 18 books! My goal is to write stories that you can get lost in, that will leave a smile on your face and a full heart. If you can forget about the real world while you’re reading and fall in love with my characters, then I’ve done my job. A lot of what I write has real life aspects in it, but that’s what makes the stories so relateable- the fact that they could happen to anyone… and have!
I live in California with my only son, Blake. If you can’t find me sitting behind a computer screen, then there’s a good chance I’m sitting in the bleachers of a baseball stadium watching him play. I love traveling to new places, meeting my readers and living life with the Real Jack Carter. ♡
I know you have a million books to choose from and I am humbled, grateful and thankful each time you choose to read one of mine, or tell someone else to read them. Thank you.
I have to be honest when I first read the blurb for Behind The Plate I was a little apprehensive, not because this author's writing is atrocious, but because she writes so well I live and breathe her characters and their storylines, and I didn't want to live through certain situations. There are some plot lines that don't suit me, and I know this author has went there in the past, so I was extremely nervous. Good news? The nerves were for nothing, and this author outdid herself showcasing that.
To say I am a huge fan of J Sterling is an understatement, her writing is some of the absolute best out there, and Behind The Plate was freaking Grand Slam. Chance and Danika's story was something I was not expecting. I feel like I learned something from this book and that rarely happens. Besides the development being outstanding, the depth was on a level I hadn't seen before. The pace and the flow had me flipping pages faster than ever, I just could not get enough. The dialogue and witty banter fit these characters ( main and side) to a T, it never one time betrayed their personalities. I feel like these characters knew who they were, and they learned a lot through other peoples mistakes. They, like me feel other's emotions, and they like to do the right thing regardless of any situation. So to say they resonated with me, is putting it mildly. I connect with this characters on another level, a level I didn't even know existed. The chemistry and connection between them? AHHHHH! It was something straight from a fairy tale. Well, a naughty fairy tale but a fairy tale nonetheless
Chance. Oh Lord have mercy Chance. This is the first time in my reading history, that I have ever experienced a Hero like Chance. He is unlike any Hero I have ever read about. He is who I am going to think about when I think of the most amazing Hero. His patience and tenderness is spell bounding. He is so dang understanding and kind.
Danika again, no one like her. She has the tendency to do the right thing ALWAYS. She too is sweet and kind. Understanding and supportive. She is personable and smart.
I don't think it is possible for anyone to understand the love I have for this book. This is the one book, that I wish I could experience for the first time over and over again. It is just that amazing. I can not wait to see what this author's future looks like. I just know she is gonna have her work cut out for her if she wants to even come close to achieving something of this greatness again.
