Jock Blocked

(Copper Valley Fireballs #1)

by Pippa Grant

She can’t let him score…

Call it superstition, but when a guy bats as hot as Brooks 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.

So when I hear he’s planning to ditch his V-card now that he’s been traded to baseball’s lovable losers — aka my home team and my reason for living every March through October — I do what any rational, dedicated, obsessed fan would do.

I make a plan to stop him.

But the thing about stopping him is that it requires spending time with him.

Lots. And lots. And lots of time.

And the more time I spend with him, the more I like him. Not 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.

But after all this time of jock-blocking him… do I even have a chance?

And if I do, are we both destined to a life of celibacy in the name of winning?

Jock Blocked is a home run of a romantic comedy 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.


5 Meatball Stars

This book was such a funny, crazy, exciting read that I couldn’t put it down. Jock Blocked is the first in the Copper Valley Fireballs Series by Pippa Grant.

Mackenzie is the Fireballs biggest fan and she will do anything for her team to start winning. She is a nut job through and through but one you can’t help but love and laugh along with.

I want a secret look-sharer. Is that too much to ask?

Brooks is the Fireballs chance to actually win a few games this series, well that is what Mackenzie is hoping for anyway. So to have this happen she has Jock Block him. But Brooks has lost his passion for the game and doesn’t know if this is for him anymore. Mackenzie as to help him see why he fell in love with the game in the first place.

Puppies – Check!

Drag Queens – Check!

And a boat load of family and friends getting in the way – Check!

I loved this book and laughed so much reading it!

This is the kiss I’ve waited for my entire life. The you get me kiss. The you are my everything kiss. The you’re my kind of crazy kiss.

Grant has a way with her writing to suck you in and get you so invested in every character from the main to the secondary and that is a skill! This is something that has me coming back for more every time she releases a new book. Her books let you escape the crazy world and just be for awhile and that is not something ever author can do. I highly recommend diving into her books if you haven’t already!
