Perfect swagger.They call Dash Wallace the Diamond King.
He’s the hottest commodity in baseball and in the bedroom.
When he runs the bases, every woman’s eyes are glued to his stunning body and a smile that puts the night lights to shame.
I’m no queen. I’m a regular girl with a regular job. I just watch him on TV and from the bleachers, season after season.Girls like me grab a guy like that one in a million times.
My number just came up, and he is as spectacular in bed as he is on the field.
But there’s not a woman in the world who can distract Dash Wallace from the game. Not for a moment. Not even me.
Until the night I do. And everything changes.
Hardball is a SMOKING HOT, SEXY romance with a touch of angst and a ton of heart from CD Reiss. It’s a fun, witty, full-length standalone meant for the over-eighteen crowd.
First off, I LOVE baseball! And I love dirty, foul-mouthed, HOT baseball players. So this book was PERFECT for me! And OMG did I enjoy Dash. Dash was the typical cocky, hot and he knows it, baseball player. BUT he has some flaws. And those flaws make him that much more real.
I devoured Dash, oops I mean Hard Ball ;-), within 24 hours! I couldn’t put it down! And I didn’t want to. My desire to read the whole book overrode any hesitation for it to end. I hope this is the start of a brand new, baseball series by Miss Reiss. Because if so, chalk up a win!
Praise for Hardball

CD Reiss is a USA Today bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up she’s at the well hauling buckets.
Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.
She’s frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn’t ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.
If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.
