Everyone knows who I am and that I could have any female fan I want. That’s supposed to be the “perk” of playing left field for the Boston Renegades. But I don’t want just any woman; I want her.

She should be just another face in the crowd, but I can’t stop thinking about the one night we spent together-and her look of regret the morning after.

Because Saylor Blackwell is the kind of woman who haunts a man. Smart, sexy as hell, and one of the best managers in the business. She’s every ballplayer’s dream woman. And I’d do anything to make things right with her.

I’m done sitting on the bench when it comes to Saylor Blackwell. Time to swing for the fences.


Whenever I wake up with a hangover, I often ask myself why I drank so much and promise that I’ll never do it again. That promise is something I’ve been breaking for the past few days, and up until now, I didn’t care.

I had hoped the booze would muddy my memory of last night, but it hasn’t. Every word she said, every expression she had, every punch to my chest to get me out of her apartment is crystal clear. I fucked up, and I don’t even know how. All I know is that the sobs I heard on the other side of Saylor’s door last night were enough to sober my stupid ass up.

For hours, I sat against her door, until a resident suggested I leave or they were going to call the police. If I hadn’t been arrested ear- lier, I probably would have encouraged them to dial Boston’s Finest. Another man might understand my plight. The woman that I want to be with kicked me out of her house, and while I probably deserved it, I didn’t want to leave until she stopped crying. I didn’t want to be the one to walk away in her time of need.

But as egos go—and believe me, mine is huge—I couldn’t let it get in the way any longer, so I walked my drunk ass back home with my tail between my legs, only to stay up all night while the booze wore off, knowing that I had to live with whatever I’d done to Saylor.

She’s the last person in the world who I want to hurt, and she’s the one person who can save me. Not only from a life behind bars, but from myself. When I’m with her, I’m a different person. The cocky son of a bitch whom everyone is used to doesn’t exist when she’s near me, and frankly, that is the man I like, or at least I used to. It’s easier being a fucking douche. It’s second nature to me and comes with the territory of being named one of the city’s most eligible bachelors.

Except when I’m with Saylor, I can be the man who hides in the shadow of that Travis Kidd. I can be the kind of man who doesn’t have to have a one-liner available or wink in order to get a phone number. When I’m with her, life outside of baseball starts to have a meaning, a fucking purpose.

Grand Slam by Heidi McLaughlin is the third book in her The Boys of Summer series. We are once again back in the world of the Boston Renegades. This third installment brings us the story of Travis Kidd.

In the previous books, we knew Travis was the joker of the team and not always the most charming, but he was always good for the laughs. Now we get to see more of who Travis is and who he can be, especially when it matters to him.

Saylor Blackwell is part of Travis’ PR team for the Boston Renegades. She should be off limits, but he can’t stop thinking about her. She takes her job seriously and is determined to fight her attraction to one pesky baseball player. But some things are harder than they should be.

OMG! The chemistry between Travis and Saylor dripped off the pages. They were so good together. But their journey was not an easy one. Travis enjoyed the perks of being an athlete. He was a player and enjoyed the life he led. Until the day it finally came back to haunt him. Saylor had responsibilities she took seriously and a daughter that was her priority. And when Travis’ life is turned upside down, the only person who can help him is not able to do so. The cost would be too high.

I enjoyed Grand Slam and loved connecting with the previous characters again, the new characters, and Lucy (especially with Travis) and just seeing the interactions between the team members again. And though Travis and Saylor went through so much together, the levity of the team gave us the laugh out loud moments we have come to enjoy in this series.
