Elliott, you don’t mess with what’s working. And what’s working is him keeping
his pants zipped and doing all of his scoring on the field.

for living every March through October—I do what any rational, dedicated,
obsessed fan would do.
spending time with him.
as the guy who’s going to help save my favorite team and finally bring home a
championship ring, but as the guy who’s helping me in my quest to bring back
the team’s old mascot. Who also loves making pancake and bacon sandwiches. And
who would do almost anything for his love of the game.
of celibacy in the name of winning?
featuring the world’s most superstitious sports fan, baseball’s oldest virgin
hero, a rogue meatball, an adorable puppy with a cussing problem, and the best
lovable losers. It stands alone and comes with a happily ever after more
satisfying than a game-winning grand slam.
Brooks is the little brother of Parker (Stud In The Stacks) and Rhett (The Hero & The Hacktivist), and Mackenzie is best friends with Sarah (America’s Geekheart). There are lots of appearances from many other characters in the Pippaverse as well, which is a nice wink to longtime readers.
But back to Brooks and Mackenzie: How could you not love a couple who fall in love because she is trying to PREVENT him from losing his V-card? Their meet-cute involves an over-the-top baseball mascot costume, and the book just gets better from there. I LOVED that while the rest of her friends called her Mac, Brooks’ nickname for her is Kenzie. It’s sweet. It’s them. It sets him apart from everyone else in her life.
Brooks and Kenzie balance each other out so well. She’s a little crazy (in a good way), and he grounds her, while she encourages him to loosen up a bit. After being traded from New York to Copper Valley, Brooks needs a little light and sunshine in his life to lift the dark cloud he feels is hanging over his head, and Mackenzie fits the bill!
