Product Description

Product Description

Pitcher Jace Richards had it all. Fame, status, money, and the perfect girl but it wasn't enough. Unable to curb his gambling addiction, he lost everything. Now banned from the MLB, he's struggling to get his feet back on the ground.

Laurel Darbis is the mom to ten-year-old Grey. Her son is her world and she'd do anything for him, including putting up with her cheating ex-husband, Adam. He doesn't make things easy on her but with her friends and family by her side, she has a strong support system to help her deal with his petty drama.

Grey is about to start baseball with his friends but their coach backs out at the last minute. All of the parents are thrilled when the new coach arrives, everyone except Laurel.

Can the former bad boy tame his ways for the sake of his players? Will the protective mother let down her guard? Either way, no one will ever expect what happens when the two match up.

Let me be clear - I hate Jace Richards after what he did to Colie in The Right Pitch. How could he treat her so poorly? Does he have a chance at redeeming himself and can I overlook everything he has done and give him another chance?

So when we left Jace Richards he was kicked out of the MLB for throwing games and gambling and completely breaking Colie's heart. Now as part of his community service he has gone to Florida to coach a baseball team and work in a hardware store. A far cry from where he was.

Laurel Darbis's 10 year old son Grey is playing on this baseball team and Laurel wants nothing to do with the playboy coach who threw his life away and doesn't think he should be allowed anywhere near any of the kids. Yet Laurel has her hands full with her ex-husband Adam and all of his antics.

Somehow Laurel decides to give Jace a chance and sees that he really is trying to change yet will both of their past mistakes cost them a future together?

I love, love, love this book. I can't say enough without giving away so much but redemption is sweet. The attraction between the two is so intense and hot and I can't believe how much of a gentleman Jace can be. Wow!! This book really shows how someone truly deserves "another at bat".

HASH(0x991f0354) out of 5 stars Another at Bat = Another Book out of the Ballpark Sept. 27 2015
By Ramona Alba - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Another at Bat is Lyssa Layne's continuation of her series of sports romance novels. Obviously it centers around baseball, a sport this author seems to love and writes about very well. While this can be read as a standalone, it's timed a few years after her other novels, The Right Pitch (where the main character Jace is a supporting one), Fear of Striking Out, and Loved by the Linebacker, in that order. Not an excuse to delay the reading of this book, but what a great excuse to complete the collection!

Jace had completely fallen from his lofty height as a star pitcher. At rock bottom, he asked for help from one of the few people that would still acknowledge him - his former agent Camila Lemos. He's soon situated in a house, gainfully employed in a job not entirely to his liking, and coaching a Little League team. Not quite what he's been used to, but he'll take it.

Laurel's world is not all right, with her ex-husband threatening to blow up the little corner she's carved out for herself and their son Grey. Baseball is Grey's, and his best friend Sam's, reason for living so of course his mom is very highly involved in it, too. Everything goes askew again when their usual coach leaves and in his place stands a very hot, highly annoying, former Major League pitcher named Jace.

Needless to say, sparks fly and a torrid friendship ensues between them. Laurel is held back, though, by the trouble her husband is causing and Jace can't come to terms with him being a good enough partner to her and father figure to Grey and Sam.

It's a more serious tone here than in Lyssa Layne's other books, but I like how Jace redeems himself and saves the day and his newly adopted family in the process. All of the trouble he goes through is worth his relationship with Laurel, and for me, well worth that memorable ending! Yes, this novel has a happy-ever-after with an epilogue unlike any other I have ever read.

Another at Bat shows how even the most horrible person can be given another chance. They've usually got a reason for behaving how they do, and understanding that makes you root for them as well. Lyssa Layne has proven, yet again, that even a bad boy can have a heart of gold.

HASH(0x991f03a8) out of 5 stars One of my fave reads of this year!!!! Oct. 14 2015
By Tracy ~ Book Loving Pixies - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Another at Bat was my first introduction to the books of Ms Layne but I've already 1-clicked a couple to my kindle and added a few more to my wish list - I really enjoyed her story, characters an writing style!

Although I didn't know anything about Jace Richards when I started reading, as I hadn't read 'The Right Pitch', I got the idea pretty early on that he had been a real lad and had some issues to deal with - but even so, I adored him pretty much from the start.
Having messed up big time - including badly hurting someone he claimed to love - he'd been kicked out of MLB and found himself down in Florida coaching a boys team.... not where he thought life would take him it kinda sucked to be him, right?? ... except his initial thoughts were knocked on their head when he met Laurel, the mum of one of his young players.

Laurel - I loved her from the get go. She was straight-talking, strong, determined, independent, feisty - and oh yeah, she was hot. She didn't let Jace pull any cr@p - with her, the team or himself, she took him as he was (well ok, that wasn't quite her attitude to begin with but Mr Richards drew her in by letting her see the real Jacen and she began to see him differently)
Our girl had a fair bit of baggage following her divorce and was still having to deal with her ex-husband - boy was he a piece of work, I really couldn't stand Adam and wished him gone often!!

Everyone (well, almost everyone!) deserves a second chance and Jace turned out to be a really good guy - hell, he was a sweetheart (a smokin' hot one at that!!) - who does his damnedest to straighten his life out, turn things around and get his girl.
His interactions with Grey and Sam are fabulous - you could tell it was because he genuinely liked the kids and not just because he was trying to get into HotShots pants!! ;)

The build up of the relationship between the couple was perfect - both had issues that they had to deal with and overcome and I liked that they didn't rush into things, they took their time and it all felt right and very natural. Lyssa, in my humble opinion, got that spot on!

Another at Bat was a fantastic read - it was sweet, funny, emotional and at times I thought my heart might stop!! Great supporting characters added to the story - the boys especially.

I give AaB 5* and have to say that it's one of my fave reads of this year!

HASH(0x991f0684) out of 5 stars Finding A Way At A Better Life Oct. 13 2015
By Jennifer R. Shiels - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was a really great book. I read and enjoyed The Right Pitch which had Jace, Grant, and Colie. So I was thrilled to get to see that there was more to Jace then how he appeared in the other book. Jace Richards had it all - he had skill and made it into the MLB, he was famous, had lots of money, and even found the girl that he loved back in college. But he was stuck in a bad situation and lost it all. He now has a job at Hardware store and he's coaching little league to 10 year old boys. Laurel is raising her 10 year old boy and also helping raise his friend Sam whose mother is dying of cancer. She's a single mom with a sleazy ex-husband who cheated on her and does everything he can to make her pay.

Jace is a good guy who was stuck in a bad situation and felt trapped. He hated who he became and he hates that he hurt Colie because he did really love her. He just knows that Grant was a better man than he was and she's better where she was. He's trying to find his footing again
and become a better man. He starts coaching the little league team and he finds that he really cares about these kids and helping them succeed. With Laurel, Grey, and Sam, he gets to experience how a real family is. He sees what really matters and gets to experience it.

Laurel got pregnant when she was 17 years old and she married the father of the child. Adam, her ex-husband, blames her and their son for ruining his life so even though they split up he still wants her to pay for everything. He's a horrible father but Laurel is a wonderful and amazing mother. Also, she is helping take care of her friend and former teacher's son since she is dying and he's really close with her son Grey. At first she doesn't have any interest in Jace but then she gets to know him and she realizes how wonderful he is.

Definitely worth reading.

HASH(0x991f057c) out of 5 stars Beautiful story and so worth the read <3 Love Lyssa's books!!! Sept. 28 2015
By The Pleasure of Reading Today - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'm going to be honest with you, when I met Jace Richards in The Right Pitch I didn't like him, he was cocky, he thought he was entitled to everything(including the love of his high school crush,)he was just not a nice person. But life has a way to show us the way, and sometimes you have to touch rock bottom in order to find that way and become the person you were meant to be, the person you deserve to be.

Jace's road to redemption is not an easy one. He's not allowed to play professional baseball anymore, he finds himself working a job that he hates and coaching little league. This is how he meets Laurel Darbis, her son Grey and his best friend Sam. And without even realizing it, is there where Jace embarks on a journey of acceptance of his past mistakes, forgiving himself, and comprehending that he is worthy of love.

This is a story to be savored slowly because of the many layers Lyssa created. Her characters in this book have soul, they allow us the readers, into their lives and we become part of them and vice versa.

Laurel is a beautiful, strong female lead who is trying to survive a crappy ex-husband while being the best mom she can be, but above all that, she has this vulnerability and tenderness that will make you fall in love with her. Jace is troubled not only by his recent mistakes but by his past, he's definitely a handsome man, but he's rough around the edges and has no filter at times. He finds himself alone, and it breaks ones heart to see such a strong guy feeling that way, but little by little he realizes that he's also a good man and that his past doesn't have to define his future.

I loved that Lyssa took her time and build the relationship between Jace and Lauren, their initial attraction and the way it grows into a relationship is full of respect and maturity, the way it should be between two adults. I adored Grey and Sam and their relationship throughout the book (Sam has a background story that will undoubtedly break your heart.)

Lyssa is one of those authors that I found by chance, I read her first book and I was hooked. She's the kind of author that gives her readers well crafted storylines with interesting characters and Another at Bat is a prime example of those things.

This is a story about redemption and second chances, a beautiful tale about finding love, protecting what's yours, and never judging a book by its cover.

This book can be read as a standalone but I recommend to read The Right Pitch first so you get a little more history on Jace.

HASH(0x991f0bb8) out of 5 stars Fan-F'in-Tastic! Sept. 26 2015
By DawnD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Step aside book boyfriends, and make room for, Jacen “Jace” Richards, because he is sliding into home plate to snag the number one spot on my “Leaderboard." One of Lyssa Layne’s other novels, ‘The Right Pitch’ is where Jace was first introduced, so I highly recommend you read that, as it makes a great companion novel to this one. Although the author did such a fantastic job of giving the reader enough backstory to keep you in the know. Therefore, this could be classified as a standalone, for sure.

So, what can I say about Jace Richards? He has such a contradictory personality that attracts me to him like teens to an Apple store. ;) Let me give you my description of him. He is rough around the edges, crude, unpolished, if you will, yet, kind, dare I say, sweet, dependable, charming, fiercely protective, and scrumpdillyicious! ( Spelling?? I think that’s a Wonka Bar, but it came to mind)

Laurel Darbis is is beautiful, sassy, feisty, strong, loving, loyal, and an amazing “mama bear.” Basically, she possesses all the qualities you look for in a leading female character.

Another At Bat has become my numero UNO Lyssa Layne novel, to date! It’s like she threw all caution to the wind, let her hair down, kicked back while sipping on mimosas, all while writing this Fan- F’in –Tastic novel! She tells the story through dual points of view, which happens to be my preference. I love knowing what each character is thinking while eliminating some of the guesswork.

The author showcases her writing talent by allowing the story to slowly burn, all the while building anticipation of what’s to come. Her attention to every detail, along with the sprinkling of humor, angst, heartache, and surprise throughout, explains why I devoured this book in one sitting.

This story is about realizing, and hanging onto, friendship love, family love, and romantic love. Even the side characters are memorable, with the kids usually stealing the show. The unusual family unit that was built is inspirational and touching. The Epilogue has to be my favorite, and to me, it was the buttercream frosting on the already yummilicious cake.

I give, Another At Bat, 5 HOTSHOT stars!
