Synopsis from Goodreads
After an unexpected twist of fate, All-Star catcher Easton Wylder is left questioning the loyalty of everyone around him.
Even the woman who shares his bed, Scout Dalton.
But if Easton thought being uprooted to the last place he expected was the only challenge life had to throw at him, he was dead wrong.
With an ailing shoulder and his career in limbo, his decision to make an unexpected change leads him to question everything – Scout’s love, family loyalties, and whether he can conquer the one obstacle he’s never been able to overcome. The secret he’s never shared with anyone.
He may be a man pushed to his limits, but he’s hell-bent on proving his worth no matter the cost.
The tagline is true – Baseball has NEVER been sexier ♥
Picking up from the jaw dropping ending in The Player Kristy pulls the rug out from underneath the reader within the very first chapter, leaving them reeling and questioning every single thing they thought they knew about Scout and Easton.
Not everything is as it seems and there is a lot more at play than expected. The plot is fast paced and utterly gripping, from the impact of actions outside of Scout and Easton’s control to the decisions affecting the future. Kristy takes the reader on a roller-coaster ride of revelations within The Catch.
Although the relationship between Scout and Easton is the foundation for the plot, with every trial and tribulation they face, the bond between them deepens and strengthens. The realisation that they belong together and everything else is just details they have to work through.
Easton and Scout’s development through The Catch is quite simply phenomenal, I adored the way in which their relationship aided their confidence and provided them with a solid basis to help overcome their emotional barriers.
Revelations abound some conforming the suspicions set within The Player while others were totally out of left field but made complete sense in the context of the plot. Peripheral characters add to the plot dynamics in surprising ways, I particularly liked the role Easton’s father played in the development of the story.
The Catch is a brilliant conclusion to Scout and Easton’s story proving that while the direction of your life may be different than you envisaged it is ultimately the right direction for you.
