Release Blitz and Review: Hard Fall by Sara Ney

Hard Fall by Sara Ney is her newest book and it is fun. That’s the highest compliment I can give it because from beginning to end, it was just a lot of fun to watch Trace “Buzz” Wallace and Hollis fall in love. It is a very different kind of courtship as it starts off as a fake date but grows into something neither is expecting (as is usually the case with a good romance).

Buzz meets Hollis at the team headquarters for the Chicago Steam, the baseball team he plays for. He hits on her but she rebuffs him hard. Hollis has just come off a bad relationship with another baseball player and she is not falling for that again. Of course, little does she know that Buzz is very hard to forget.

This is classic fun Sara Ney romance. There is great repertoire between the leads. A lot of snarky give and take which I always enjoy! Both leads have supporting characters behind them to lend advice or alcohol when needed. Plus, Sara Ney knows how to write steamy love scenes and she does not skimp on that front in Hard Fall. Buzz and Hollis do not lack in sexual chemistry. I admit, I liked this book better than the first book in the series but part of that is because even in Hard Pass, Buzz stood out to me in a way Noah (the hero of that book) did not. Buzz is a goofball but there are several things he takes seriously: baseball, his family, his friends, and now, Hollis. If you’re looking for a fun, quick but very steamy and awkward romantic love story (Buzz’s mom plays matchmaker in one scene and forces them to share Buzz’s childhood bedroom!), get this book on your e-reader. Hard Fall is fun. Plain and simple, it took my mind off the craptastic realism of 2020 and that’s high praise in these times.

Release Date: August 18

“Hard Fall”
That’s what my mom is always saying: “The bigger you are, the harder you fall.” She’s talking about love—I’ve never been in it myself, but that doesn’t stop me from secretly matchmaking for my friends. Who would suspect me, a world class athlete, of meddling in other people’s love lives? I love Love, especially when it’s not me who’s doing the falling…

“No Thanks.”
That’s what Hollis Westbrooke said when I asked her on a date. Well, propositioned her, actually—but it was all a big joke; one she doesn’t think is funny. My stomach is in knots since I might actually like this girl so the joke is on me. Hollis’s father is my boss—and she doesn’t date players.

The bigger they are, the harder they fall—especially when biggest player is me.
