The Changeup by A.M. Williams
Sports (Baseball) Romance/Adult Romance
The Changeup is the first in this series (Boys of Summer #1) and is a quick sports romance read!
Chase is the head coach of a baseball team/league and Emma is a hospitality worker at the team’s stadium. When these two meet there are sparks!
Both characters are relatable and interesting. Chase is a strong, quiet and an attractive man. He has a detailed backstory that allowed me to connect and understand where he was coming from especially when he was being a jerk at times. He is going through a lot in his personal and professional life. Although I did connect with him, I would have loved to have more context on what happened in his past relationship since the woman is brought up a lot. I think I would have liked this story even more with that perspective.
Emma is the sweet girl-next-door yet she doesn’t take kindly to Chase’s crap – I LOVE that! I wish there would have been a little more development of her character because I really liked her strength and personality. I also found her very relatable and I LOVED her interaction with her best friend, Callie. Callie won the show for me with her funny and honest comments/remarks.
Together, Chase and Emma make a cute couple but their lack of communication with each other makes their relationship difficult. There are other obstacles that are thrown in their way…read the book to find out more!
I did enjoy this sweet, quick read. I have always enjoyed sports romance reads and love it when a couple must overcome obstacles to be together. It’s fun to watch them learn and grow! If you are looking for a fun and quick summer read…this book is for you!
The next book in this series sounds interesting! It’s Callie’s book! Wooo!
