Winning With Him is the continuation of Declan and Grant’s story. OH…MY…HEART! I could NOT love these two more. There were times during this book when I just didn’t know if my little tiny heart could hold any more. It both broke for these two and soared with happiness. They…are…everything!!! Grant Blackwood’s heart is broken. He throws himself into the only thing that has ever been steadfast for him, baseball. We start out during the final days in spring training. This is what Grant has always dreamed of, his chance to play baseball professionally. So he ignores the pain in his heart and gives his all. Declan Steele has been traded to New York. What started out as being the answer to all of he and Grant’s problems quickly changed. Now Declan is alone and his heart is also broken. He only wanted to do what was best. But was it? This book spans over five years. It starts right up where book one left off and takes us on a journey. We get alternating points of view between Declan and Grant so we know what is happening in both of their lives. Of one thing we never doubt, through everything, their love for each other never dies. In my heart, I felt every emotion they did, I lived every moment right along with them. I loved watching them both grow and heal. I loved watching the rebirth of hope for what they could have together. “This feels like the start of the rest of my life.” My heart is so full. Lauren Blakely, if you read this, you are truly gifted writing MM romance. Your characters feel real to me, you make me feel so much! Declan and Grant truly had to go on a journey before they could come back together. Even though my heart was broken when they were apart, I feel they truly needed the time to be the men they were supposed to be. This book comes to a complete HEA. There is absolutely no cliff hanger. BUT, Lauren says she’s not done with them yet. These characters have more to say. So she is continuing their story in one more book, All In With Him. I don’t know if I’ve ever been more excited for a book. “This is my fantasy. This is our reality. This is our life. And it’s spectacular.” For more about this book and so many others, come and visit me at Carol's Crazy Bookish World. https://www.facebook.com/groups/Carol...

Beneath their dazzling good looks and sports star status, Declan and Grant are trying to survive heartbreak as best they can. Knowing that his career is just starting and though Declan’s unilateral decision to break off their secret relationship came from a good place, it was probably a good call, he throws himself into baseball and advocacy for the next five years until Declan reaches out once again. But can they fall again? Winning With Him starts right where Scoring With Him left off and takes us on Grant and Declan’s journey. We see both of them grow as athletes, especially Grant who came into his own in a most wonderful way. They both mature, but Declan especially finds it within himself to find a way to heal the wounds from his past and be a better man for him and for a possible relationship with Grant. And through it all, there’s never any doubt in the reader’s mind that these two not only love each other deeply, but a perfect for one another. I loved how their relationship was developed, and just like in the past book, their story hit me in all the best feels. While this book ends with a beautiful happy ending, Lauren Blakely has announced that there will be another part to Grant and Declan’s story, All In With Him, I can’t wait to get my hands on! I hope Declan gets to win the world series in it ;) Winning With Him is book #2 of the Men of Summer duet by Lauren Blakely. A sports romance told from both points of view, with HEA ending.

These two clearly already won over my heart and I loved them together in spring training. But it was also obvious that they would have plenty of challenges to overcome. Then everything changed anyway. It is a time for them to rededicate themselves to the sport they love and their teammates. But there is still the indelible impression left on both of their hearts and the trust issues, regrets, pain, and guilt that came from it. But eventually, their paths will cross again bringing back the tension, sparks, and unresolved feelings that cannot be erased. But problems do not just miraculously disappear and the repercussions of being hurt just make guarding their hearts safer. They are two men in a high-profile sport in different stages of their careers. They each have baggage of their own in addition to what they collected in the past. These two both have work to do on themselves, healing that needs to occur, and personal goals to reach. Are they meant to be the one that got away or will there eventually come a time that their timing is right so that they can really try for something more? Grant and Declan are just so wonderful together. I abso-freaking-lutely adore them both so much. I felt all of their feelings as they did. From the fragility of their first connection to the longing of what-could-have-been, and being so afraid to take a chance and risk their hearts and careers. The raw emotion and vulnerability that these two eventually begin to show really touched me. Along the way, they both have opportunities for growth and change and work to overcome obstacles. I was cheering them on from behind my kindle. This is an epic, intense, emotional, scorching hot, M/M sports romance that spans time, distance, and painful situations. But despite the more emotional undertones, there is also humor, wit, and camaraderie too. It is about healing, honesty, sacrifice, and overcoming fears. Their relationship is complicated, deep, challenging, and passionate. Their connection is one that could not easily be forgotten, but there are no easy fixes. Their personal journeys are as intrinsic to the story as their emergence as a couple. And they have steps to take both individually and together in order to build a solid foundation. The side characters and their relationships just add to the depth of the story, as well as providing support and comic relief. I love seeing their dynamic relationships and how this story parallels with some others in the series, but now we know that there was so much more going on under the surface with these two. I cannot believe I am saying this but Grant and Declan have just surpassed my other favorite LB couple Fitz and Dean as my number one. Maybe it is the fact that they have kept me completely enthralled and invested for two amazing books and I still do not want to let them go. These guys have burrowed themselves into my heart and I feel like they are real. They are so well developed, have evolved so much, and all of their issues have been exposed and unraveled, and they have been rebuilt and healed through the course of this series.

I want to say fuck the world and be with you." "...But I listen to my gut—to the instinct that tells me to get in the elevator and go. To leave the first man I ever loved. And hope the other love of my life doesn't abandon me." The second book in the Men of Summer series, Winning with Him, explores detours in the relationship and the eventual reuniting of Grant and Declan. This is not a stand-alone and must be read after Book 1 for one to follow along. The power dynamics change this time around in the couple’s relationship. Grant is no longer the starry-eyed, naive rookie who's willing to do anything for Declan. He's strong enough to turn Declan away when he asks for a second chance. Grant chooses to focus on baseball until he becomes an established player, as well as a high profile activist for LGBTQ rights. He grows in his own right. And Declan finds himself having to undergo profound emotional growth to win him back. By the time Declan finishes putting in the necessary work in therapy, he’s no longer the emotionally closed off guy who self-sabotages his relationships. There’s strong relationship development and characterization. The love story stays sweet and becomes a bit sappy at the end. As a bonus, this is a seriously steamy read. Although there’s a third (final) book in the series, I have little incentive to read it. By the end of the book, Grant and Declan are back together again and making plans to move in together. There is no conflict or cliffhanger. I can't imagine what an entire book on their live-in relationship could possibly be about.

Ok, so I'll say what I liked first: - I liked Declan's development of his relationship with his father, the way he sheltered his mum from him. His love for his stepdad - how he made the effort to get to know that side of his family better. - I liked Grant finding friendship in River and even going into business with him (although, River disappears from the book only to appear once again towards the end. I thought he was going to be a much stronger character.) I liked Grant's fight for equality and his work as an Advocate. And that's basically all I liked. As I said on my review of Book 1, I felt like the story ending where it did then was totally unnecessary. It was adding drama for drama's sake, and that believe was justified for me after reading this second book. I just don't see what the need for the separation was. Declan and Grant could have worked together on their issues. Grant would have supported Declan then -- and yes, maybe they weren't ready to put everything in the burner, they were young, but I think the "growing" they did while being separated would have happened the same while being together (And suddenly contacting each other when they decide to have a second chance five years later does not affect their game, but actually improves it? No. Just no. It actually made me mad that they made such a big thing about it in book 1 but now it was ok) When they meet a few years later and Declan is going to therapy, there is a lot of focus on how little Grant knew about Declan when they were together, like this was an issue. When in reality it never felt like that reading book 1. They had only been together for like a month before Declan left for NY, so they were still in the process of getting to know each other. Don't know why they make such a big thing of it 4 or 5 years later. Grant's scars are as deep as Deck's (overhearing his parents when he was a teen) and still his "emotional baggage" doesn't stop him from being and doing what he needs to be/do. I found Declan's "rules" (having to wait until one year of therapy, etc) and need to wait very OTT and pointless. Oh, and are you telling me that neither of them had another partner in 5 years?! Yeah righ. Not flying. There is a tiny little mention that Grant says at the end, something like "And Deck is still the only one to ever spend the night". But listen, the fact that they NEVER talk about the fact that there may have been other men in those years they were separated, I just don't buy it!!! I skimmed read the last 15% of the book because it was draaaaaaging. Like nothing happened. I even skimmed past the sex scenes *gasp!*. I was waiting for one last itsy bitsy bit of drama and it never came. It was just cheese overload. So yeah, not a winner for me at all. Now I'm scared to choose another book, because I feel like the problem is ME seeing so many 5 stars reviews.

    NOT SPOILER FREE I realised with dismay that ‘Winning with Him’ was a second-chance romance midway through the book and that nearly caused me to stop reading, mostly because those never work out too well for me.

Unfortunately, this probably counted as one of them….more so because I wanted the HEA after the cliffhanger of the first part. Dealing with my own downed expectations is probably the hardest part of writing this review, because it felt like Lauren Blakely had taken the story into a turn midway (in the middle of a grovel) that somehow left me…fuming after I was bobbing along happily, caught in Declan’s and Grant’s storm in a teacup. The Grant-responsible-time-separation felt like a cop-out, because I thought better decisions could have been made by both characters instead of a serendipitous decision that did neither of them good—or at least, left one in a better place than the other. I can well understand that both sides had issues to work through and that change was obviously not instantaneous, but if their 5-year-long separation was meant to be a time-and-career-equaliser, it turned out to be a plot device that ended up driving me nuts with the decisions that Grant took. The lack of compromise that sat at the heart of it all felt a bitter aftertaste that didn't really fade, seeing as it was made with no intention at all of both sides ever getting back together again. That they did finally come back together simply felt like a matter of chance rather than intentioned action, which shook the foundation of my own romantic notions that both sides should after all, work for each other and for themselves...together. If the five-year gap made Grant an older, more established, famous player, I thought it diminished Declan in contrast, making him more inclined towards realising that he needed to be ‘worthy’ of Grant. That Declan needed therapy to feel that way raised too many red flags for me, I really didn’t know what else he’d been learning about himself, other that love was made to feel a little more conditional than it was when they first got together. The more I thought (and raged) about this, the more I felt there was an inequality of character growth during this separation—in fact, it felt detrimental to their HEA at the end—as Declan seemed to be the one who had to keep making up for crossing the distance to Grant, while the latter pretty much did…nothing. That Declan had to change and work through his own issues was clear, but shouldn't Grant have had to as well, given how he’d used his own abandonment and commitment issues as a reason for choosing his career above everyone and everything else? Couldn’t both of them have instead, worked through their issues together instead of separately because Grant insisted on carving his own path to success? Clearly ‘Winning with Him’ stomped repeatedly on too many of my sore points and my personal boundaries of what I thought should or should not be acceptable in a second-chance story. As much as I liked their journey in the first book, I can’t say that it worked out the way I wished it to happen for the both of them.

Finally, I had fun reading this book, to my much surprise, I really did laugh A LOT, so that's a plus one from me always. Things I didn't like: 1) I felt like Declan was leftvout by the writer, I mean, Grant was having an stellar rookie season then they the" world series", he was the spoke person for the Alliance. While Declan was doing nothing with his professional career, he didn’t win anything, he didn’t seem to upgrade himself... this I obviously didn't like at all. (I smell favoritism here 🥸) 2) The book in general was SLOW and could have been better without all that apart time drama... but I guess the ending makes up for all the suffering from before. I recommend this book if you have read the first one, because we'll you deserve the HEA. Happy reading!! ❤ ❤

    5 SMOOCHES! I’m going to say right off the bat that Lauren Blakely’s Men of Summer series is my most anticipated read of the summer. Based on my reading experiences with Blakely’s other M/M romances, I had very high hopes for this series, and now, two books into it, and I can say that it’s an epic love story that has surpassed my expectations.

I’m going to say right off the bat that Lauren Blakely’s Men of Summer series is my most anticipated read of the summer. Based on my reading experiences with Blakely’s other M/M romances, I had very high hopes for this series, and now, two books into it, and I can say that it’s an epic love story that has surpassed my expectations. After that cliffhanger ending in book one, Scoring With Him, I could not wait to dive into Winning With Him. It’s important that readers know going into this series that these are not standalone romances and these books must be read in order. Also, Lauren recently announced that she wasn’t quite done with Grant and Declan’s story, and she’s releasing a third book in this series, All In With Him, very shortly. Winning With Him picks right up at that heartbreaking, gasp-inducing moment where Scoring With Him ends. I don’t want to give any spoilers away, but Scoring With Him is the beginning of Declan and Grant’s story. Two professional baseball players, one is a rookie and the other a rostered player, on the same team. The tear-your-clothes-off, can’t-keep-away-from-each-other chemistry between them sizzled and was the perfect kindling to their fiery forbidden romance. Genuine feelings build, and in the throes of those beginning stages of new love, they begin to make plans. But a cold slap of reality forces the painful realization that they’re in a right person at the wrong time scenario. In Winning With Him, Lauren takes her readers on Declan and Grant’s independent journeys through the next five years. These two characters grew and matured tremendously during their time apart, both personally and professionally. The thing is that neither of them has really moved on or truly gotten over the other. Their paths crossed on occasion, they still share a group of friends, and when it did, that spark was still very much there. Five long years later, it is finally their time, and the absolute gloriousness of that reunion brought me to tears. The emotion in this story did a number on my poor little heart—I absolutely ached for these two. Winning With Him, the second part of Declan and Grant’s romance, was definitely one of Blakely’s most angsty love stories. There was so much emotion here, so much longing, but Lauren rewards her readers for all this heartbreak and angst with richly developed characters whose stories and histories I was completely invested in. For all the struggle and pain she put them – and me – through, she wasn’t greedy with the payoff. Declan and Grant’s reunion was one of the most rewarding second chances I’ve ever read from her. Spanning five years, Winning With Him was the culmination of an extraordinary romance. Full of feels, hard fought, sweet and tender and a bit tragic, Declan and Grant did the work on themselves individually and found their way back to each other. It’s a painful twist of fate to meet your perfect person at the wrong time in both of your lives, and Blakely did an incredible job taking me through those emotions. I loved, I longed and I lamented right along with Declan and Grant, and when it finally was their time, I was as ready for their second chance as they were. A beautifully told, immensely engaging love story, I was all in from the very beginning of their journey. Blakely may have left readers hanging a bit in Scoring With Him, but she more than made up for that in Winning With Him. This series was my most anticipated read of the summer for good reason. Blakely surpassed all of my expectations by penning an utterly consuming, moving and memorable love story. Five smooches from me for Winning With Him by Lauren Blakely! ~Danielle Palumbo

    This is book 2 of the Men of Summer duet and continues the story of Declan and Grant. This series needs to be read in order. It is written in first person from an alternating dual POV. One of my favorite things to read about in romance is personal growth the characters go through so they can be the best part of the relationship in their HEA. This book has that in spades. Gah!!!! Grant and Declan both grow so much over the course of their time apart. They both become who they need to be to succeed This is book 2 of the Men of Summer duet and continues the story of Declan and Grant. This series needs to be read in order.

Grant and Declan both grow so much over the course of their time apart. They both become who they need to be to succeed in a mature and loving relationship. I love that the author gave them this time to grow and have a shot at success together. This book packs some serious heat, some deeply intimate non-physical moments between the characters, love, romance, friendship, and some laughs. This story is deep, thorough, and emotional. I laughed, swooned, melted, ached, and loved right along side these beautifully written men. It takes five years for these two to go from attraction and passion to deep and consuming love. Their love makes me so happy. This author always does such a great job with both sports romance and her male/male couples and this book is the pinnacle of both. I absolutely loved it. I am voluntarily leaving this honest review after receiving an advance reader copy of the book.

    After the first book ended, I really couldn't wait for this one. It did not disappoint. Declan and Grant's story is a real roller coaster ride of emotions. The fact that it took them a few years made it more real and emotional, with all the obstacles they have to go through. But not going to lie, there are some parts of the story that seemed so unnecessary. It just makes the story seem draggy.

    I definitely liked this one way more than the first, but again, apparently there’s a third book. Why? I don’t know, there’s really no need. Unlike the first, this one ends in a good note and the MCs are happy and together in the end. Overall, not a bad read,the audiobooks are fantastic!

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I liked the first part much more. I didn't even expect to like it so much but was travelling for several hours and had the audiobook handy and the book won me over despite the somewhat cliche premise. The MCs had good chemistry and it was a bit of a slow burn which I always enjoy. I happened to finish it on the very day of the second's book premiere and bought it right away to see what happens next to Grant and Declan.

I'm sorry to say that I was disappointed (slight spoilers coming up): it started of nicely with some retrospections for both MCs explaining more about their past and what shaped them. Still, when "The Big Split" happens, I didn't quite buy it... I was saddened by it, I admit, felt their pain but also frustrated because it felt forced as well. I mean "I can't be with you because I love you too much"?? Who reasons this way?? And then the last third of the book was just such a typical setup to so many of the MM romances: the over-the-top talks about "you're the love of my life, you're my everything, this is what forever feels like". And don't get me wrong, I love romaces and I know they need those words said at some point, but perhaps every conversation towards the end of the book with each character and family member choking up and tearing up during them, was a bit much for me.. I don't think I'll be reading part three of this story.

    READ ME ROMANCE

    I am always impressed when I read a book by Lauren Blakely, not only because she is a gifted writer, but because of the range of topics she delves into and the deeply personal layers she gives each of her characters. Some of her books are true rom coms, some take you on adventures to far away places, while others just break your heart. She has another winner in Winning with Him, book two of three in her Men of Summer series, which spans five years.

Some of her books are true rom coms, some take you on adventures to far away places, while others just break your heart. She has another winner in Winning with Him, book two of three in her Men of Summer series, which spans five years. It's about two professional male athletes, Grant and Declan, who have an undeniable emotional and physical connection, and their journey to their HEA. Grant and Declan have so many strikes against them, but they persevere, which you will understand as you read Scoring With Him, book one in this sports romance series. It explains how they met when Grant, a catcher, was brought up from AAA to play on the same baseball team in San Francisco as Declan, shortstop, a few years his senior. Even though they are both out of the closet regarding their sexuality and they long for one another, there are significant reasons they can’t be together. Even during the time they were apart, they were always in each other’s thoughts and hearts. Soulmates destined to reconnect. What I love most about this author’s work is how personally invested I become in her characters. Whether the scene was on the ballfield, in the bedroom, or in the bar, she writes with such depth of emotion that I truly felt their every pain, internal conflict, and triumph. This book has so many feels and you will laugh and cry right along with Grant and Declan. I personally could relate to Declan as his father was an alcoholic and my heart ached for him. Grant had issues too regarding his parents, and I loved how they could lean on each other. When our two heroes first met, it was pure physical attraction and flirty banter. They tried their best but couldn’t keep their big strong hands off each other and it doesn’t stop there. Blakely is the Queen of Steam, and this series is a full-court press of hotness, sexiness, and delicious dirty talk. There is so much passion between Grant and Declan and I love the character development over the years, how they each did what was best for not only their careers, but for each of them individually and as a couple. I loved how Grant used his fame to promote and support LGBTQ initiatives. He was a leader and admired by his teammates and of course, Declan. He was a gentle soul with a giant heart, and I loved how he was vulnerable yet strong. Sometimes even though love may find you, you aren’t in the right headspace and/or the timing just isn't right to be in a healthy relationship. I loved how even though it was difficult, they communicated honestly, could sincerely apologize, and really listened to one another. Loved how they encouraged one another, were each other’s biggest fans, and were able to work through life’s challenges while keeping their sense of humor and flirtatious banter. LOVED Declan’s big grand gesture in the end and how he was finally at peace after talking to a professional who helped him put things in perspective. I adored all of the side characters, especially their teammates, their friends from home, the bar owner, and Fitz and Dean, their gay friends who are now happily married. Blakely always comes full-circle with her amazing characters and leaves me with a giant book high when it’s over.

    In Scoring With Him we got to see how Declan & Grant's story started. From the sweet crush stages to the "scoring" part and all the way to the point where things start to get real. After that, we are left with so many questions for their future which is where Winning With Him picks up. Declan has just been traded and is now in New York.

From the sweet crush stages to the "scoring" part and all the way to the point where things start to get real. After that, we are left with so many questions for their future which is where Winning With Him picks up. Declan has just been traded and is now in New York. Starting on a new team always stirs the nerves but what he didn't expect was his dad to be at his first game on his new team. Declan has always had a rocky relationship with his dad and with everything going on in his life this is just another added stress he does not need. When his dad starts to bring up his "boyfriend" Declan does the only thing he can do he ends his relationship with Grant before it even really starts. It is what is best for Grant and for him, isn't it? Grant finally feels like things are going the way they are supposed to be going for him. He is now a real part of a team not just a rookie whose life hangs in the balance and he has a great guy he is crazy about. After a killer first game Grant doesn't think there is anything that can bring him down but one text message changes everything, the future he thought he might be able to start with Grant. As the days, months and eventually years go by we get a look into the next five years of Grant and Declan's lives that they are living separately. One encounter at Declan's home and a couple of casual conversations over the years are all that these two men get until it seems as if their lives are no longer fulfilled but as if something is missing. Each other. Will Declan and Grant be able to work through five years of feelings to get to a future where they might finally have their second chance? I fell in love with these guys from their first meeting in Scoring With Him and the love I have for them just grew through this book. There were times when I wanted to yell at Declan to wake up and see what was right in front of him and other times where I just wanted to protect Grant from Declan. Getting to this point in their story was not an easy one but it was totally worth it, and I am looking forward to the conclusion of their story that comes out later in August, All In With Him. I think there is still some of their story that has not been told yet. Now on to the narration, it is Jacob Morgan & Teddy Hamilton do I really need to say anything else? Jacob Morgan is one of the few narrators I have listened to that can put such fierce emotion into the characters that you can’t help but feel what the character is feeling from sorrow to joy and back again. Then, Teddy Hamilton I mean come on!! How can you not swoon over that voice? One of my favorite things about Teddy’s voice is the happiness you can hear when the character is happy it resonates so loudly. Yes, five stars all the way for the narration.

    3.75 stars-- WINNING WITH HIM is the second instalment in Lauren Blakely’s contemporary, adult MEN OF SUMMER erotic, LGBTQ, baseball romance series focusing on short stop Declan Steele, and rookie catcher Grant Blackwood. Grant’s story begins in the prequel novella CRUSHING ON HIM but you do not have to have read the novella to understand or follow the current story line WINNING WITH HIM should not be read as a stand alone- I recommend reading SCORING WITH HIM for back story and cohesion as it pi 3.75 stars-- WINNING WITH HIM is the second instalment in Lauren Blakely’s contemporary, adult MEN OF SUMMER erotic, LGBTQ, baseball romance series focusing on short stop Declan Steele, and rookie catcher Grant Blackwood. Grant’s story begins in the prequel novella CRUSHING ON HIM but you do not have to have read the novella to understand or follow the current story line WINNING WITH HIM should not be read as a stand alone- I recommend reading SCORING WITH HIM for back story and cohesion as it picks up immediately after the events and cliff hanger of book one. NOTE: WINNING WITH HIM focuses on two gay men in professional sports including graphic scenes of same $ex situations. If you have not read book one SCORING WITH HIM there may be spoilers in my review. Told from dual first person perspectives (Declan and Grant) covering approximately five years, WINNING WITH HIM follows the struggling relationship between short stop Declan Steele, and rookie catcher Grant Blackwood. Grant Blackwood was heart broken when a text, during the off season, from Declan Steele declared he was no longer interested in a long distance relationship. Five years would pass wherein our couple would occasionally meet up for a hand shake or a drink but during those five years neither Grant nor Declan ever forgot about one another. Home for the Christmas holidays found Declan declaring his love for a man he thought may never forgive him, but a man who had stolen his heart, like no one else. What ensues is the building romance and relationship between Declan and Grant, as they learn to navigate a world of endless possibilities and a potential long distance relationship. WINNING WITH HIM covers five years in the life wherein the reader is only given a glimpse into the lives of our story lines heroes. From Declan’s dysfunctional father, and Grant’s success on the field, and desire to help out the LGBTQ youth, the author reveals a little more about our story line couple as they work behind the scenes without one another. The $ex scenes are erotic and intense without the use of over the top , sexually graphic language and text. The secondary and supporting characters include Grant’s best friend Reese, and her brother River; Declan’s best friends Emma, and her brother, professional hockey player James Fitzgerald; and several members of the San Francisco Cougars: Crosby Cash, Sullivan, Miguel, and Chance Ashfordl Declan’s parents, and Grant’s mother and step-father. WINNING WITH HIM is a story of second chances; a rekindling romance between two people focusing on their professional careers but therein lies a bit of a problem. A five-year separation meant limited information, information that would have allowed the reader to witness the character’s growth and development, and not just the revelations and quick observations from our story line couple. The premise is entertaining; the romance is seductive and steamy; the characters are charismatic and colorful. WINNING WITH HIM ends on a happily ever after for now- the author has plans for at least one more instalment. www.thereadingcafe.com

The first time Lauren Blakely left us with a cliffhanger, and it totally paid off because the conclusion of Grant and Declan’s story is everything I was hoping for taking us on a cataclysmic rollercoaster ride filled with pain, joy, soul searing love, heat, desire and everything in between! I really thought I knew the why of the message that changed both of our Heroes lives. But I was wrong and I’m okay with that, because when it’s revealed, I could feel my heart beating rapidly in my chest for the pain that was being inflicted on Grant and Declan. And with that one message, their lives move forward but not in a way that brings unparalleled joy to either of them, because they’re not with each other. I was glued to my phone listening to Jacob Morgan and Teddy Hamilton once again breathing life into a book with the way they express all the emotions that our Heroes are experiencing. Both Grant and Declan move forward in their baseball careers achieving some amazing accomplishments and we move very smoothly over months and years getting to see emotional growth for both of these men. And in my mind, it’s so they’re ready to once again be in each other’s hearts, minds and bodies. And when they once again come together, it’s like one of the most spectacular fireworks displays I’ve ever seen! “’I want to get naked with you. So. Damn. Soon.’ And I incinerate. I’m a volcano as his hot gaze rolls over me like a scorching summer day on the equator.” They’re connection is as strong as it ever was and when they once again see each other several years later, it’s finally their time and they need to navigate what it means to be together not only as professional baseball players but being on opposite coasts. We know their physical connection is still HAF, but are they ready for the strain the distance might put on their love? Have the blurry boundaries that exist in Declan’s life been smoothed out? What kind of sacrifices need to be made to have their forever love and most importantly can they be a couple in front of the entire world? We get all these answers along with the epic conclusion to this love story that is one that will be forever in my heart!!

This one had no less to give in the emotional department, but the vibe is something else. While book 1 #ScoringWithHim is wild and hot, this one is almost calm and collected. The 2 characters Declan and Grant grow so much in this sequel and seeing their growth and their changes was beautiful and fascinating. The novel covers a time frame of 5 years and a lot has happened within these 5 years. Grant has become so much more focused and Declan was able to work through so many things concerning his past. They do so much not only for themselves, but also for the community they live in and the community they stand for. The people they both are in the end? These are fantastic people. More mature, unafraid and completely in touch with their feelings. Reading about these two in this second instalment was just wonderful. While this book did take on a more serious note, it didn’t lose the lighthearted humour though. There were scenes that made me furrow my brows, yes. But there were also scenes that made me smile, that made me emotional, that made me laugh and giggle. One of these scenes? THE UNICORNS.😂 And if you’ve read the book you just KNOW what I mean.😂 I am so happy that there will be a 3rd book in this series as well. I am looking forward to #AllInWithHim 🥰😍💖 PS A book about River and Owen? 👀Yes, PLEASE!🔥❤️ PPS How good does Grant look on this cover???😍😍😍😍😍

Winning With Him is the second book in Grant and Declan's fabulous love story. They are now on separate major league baseball teams, but no matter how far apart they are, they continue to be drawn to each other. They each come from a home environment that was neither positive nor healthy. Declan's dad is an alcoholic continuing to cause havoc in his life. Grant's parents didn't want him and he carries that burden with him every day. Can Declan and Grant overcome the hurdles in their path to finally find happiness with each other? Winning With Him left me hopeful that one day everyone around the world will be able to experience the type of love they desire without worry of retaliation.

    4.5+ stars Declan and Grant started their story in Scoring With Him. This is the second half of their duet and I was so ready to find out what happened after the cliff we were left with.

This is the second half of their duet and I was so ready to find out what happened after the cliff we were left with. As we were left with them taking a step back from their relationship, I was curious about how they would handle the things holding them back from commitment and how they would handle the challenges of their careers and self-healing without the other to lean on. They each have things they need to work on and working on personal issues takes time. Even as I understood why they were working on themselves individually, I couldn’t help but wish they could heal together! I was crushed when they left things as they did, and so the prospect of them not making a speedy reconciliation was tough to take. But, there are a lot of layers to peel back with these 2 guys, and each has hurts he has to heal before he can give his all to anyone else. Once I got over the initial shock and moved into this book, I really enjoyed the process they took over their years apart. This book spans quite the timeline, but each decision and each year that passes heals and helps Grant and Declan so they can have a chance to try again, if they can find a way to have a relationship across the country. This was the perfect follow up for their story and left me feeling very good about what they had overcome! It was full of heart and emotion, as well as plenty of fun and wit. I loved the side characters - both men have fantastic friends and teammates supporting them (I wish we could live in the world that has been crafted here!). The story has a perfect blend of drama and emotion to keep things moving and tie up Declan and Grant’s story nicely!
