Book Synopsis:

I knew something was wrong the second she walked in the door tonight; I just couldn’t put my finger on what it was. 

Same hair color. 
Same legs. 
Same face.

Except…I look harder. At the small dimple beneath her lip that wasn’t there the last time we went out. And her laugh—that laugh isn’t as loud. 

This isn’t the girl I’ve gone out with the past few weeks. It’s her twin sister, and they’ve switched places on me. 

Only I’m not quite ready to let them switch back.

My Thoughts:

Switch Hitter was a fun, sexy, and fast-paced short little novella.  I've never read anything by Sara Ney before, and my co-blogger/book twin, Mikki, loves all of her books.  I liked the book cover, and when I read the book summary, I thought to myself, "This sounds like a good read!"  I was looking for something short to read, and a book I could get lost in...Well, Switch Hitter proved to be a really good reading escape!

Amelia and Lucy are identical twins, but they couldn't be more different!  Amelia is introverted, down to earth, responsible, and has substance.  Her twin Lucy is outgoing, only dates the most gorgeous guys (usually jocks,) that have a good chance at going pro one day, and heavily depends on Amelia to bail her out of the constant trouble she gets herself into from her irresponsible actions.  

On one such instance, Lucy has accidentally booked herself two dates on the same night, and begs Amelia to pretend to be her for one of these dates.  Even though Amelia really doesn't want to, she bails Lucy out as usual.  However, what happens when Amelia starts to fall for Dante?

Switch Hitter was a good time!  The pages flew by, and the chemistry between Amelia and Dante was palpable.  I enjoyed seeing Amelia let her hair down, relaxing, and slipping up with Dante by being herself.  It was sexy and sensual when they connected with one another, spoke Spanish to each other, flirted, laughed, talked, and danced.  I loved watching these two fall for one another, and wanted Amelia to tell Dante who she really was!  

This story is a nice little intro into the Jock Hard Series, and I really want to read, Jock Row, the first full length story.  If you're looking for a light, fluffy romance, where you just want to relax, sip your wine or tea, and get your mind off of the stresses off life, I recommend reading, The Switch Hitter!

  2. Amelia's sister sounds like a flake. I hope Amelia ended up telling Dante who she was, but if this is an intro probably not? I'll have to give this author a try. Love her t-shirt! :)

    1. Yeah, I didn't care for Lucy at all. You get Amelia and Dante's full story. This is just an intro into the series. The next book is about a different couple. Thanks for stopping by Rachel :)

  3. I've not read anything by Sara Ney. This sounds fun and sexy :)

  4. I've heard nothing, but good things about her books. I will read them at some point. This does sound like a cutie and I can appreciate wanting a shorter read now and then.

    1. Oh yes, I am looking forward to reading more books by this author, and this a good read if you want to read a shorter story!

  5. Fun and sexy, I can get on board with this.

  6. This does sound fun and the author is new to me so I should definitely look into them more! Great review for this!!

  7. This sounds like a good read. I don't really like that cover too much.. (Not that it doesn't look good!!) But the description sounds very good!

  8. This books sounds really good. I'll be adding this one to my TBR pile very soon! Thank you for sharing and the great review!
