About the book: Mystery and romance weave together in a set of fast-paced, sports romance novels. Follow the Barlow sisters as they negotiate the perils of forbidden love while finding their place at a new school in the troubled town of Armitage.
Maddie Barlow is used to being in control.
So when her father uproots their family to the small, troubled town of Armitage, just six months from her high school graduation, she’s struggling to cope. Worse yet, he insists the coach makes room for all of his daughters on the boys’ baseball team. The close-knit Armitage Pitbulls don’t want three girls messing up their season, and they’re going to do everything in their power to make sure the girls don’t make them look bad…especially Holden Carter—the smooth, good-looking captain of the team.
Maddie takes one look at him and knows he’s trouble. In spite of her instant attraction she’s determined to put the arrogant jock in his place, which is made doubly hard when her younger sister starts crushing on the guy. In an attempt to protect her sister from getting hurt, Maddie puts herself between them, only to face a curveball she never saw coming.
Her attraction to Holden is not supposed to turn into more…and when it does she’s caught between hurting her sister and turning her back on the first guy she’s ever really fallen for.
But a forbidden romance is not the only curveball Maddie and Holden have to dodge, because things aren’t what they seem in the quaint town of Armitage…and they’re about to work out that discovering the truth can be way more dangerous than living a lie.
Grab your copy today and escape into a small town where trouble lurks around every corner and romance is just a heartbeat away.

***** 4 Star Review by SAR Blog *****
|I have loved everything this author has written in her NA and YA Genre and couldn't wait to read her new Barlow Sister's series.|
Curveball is first book of the series. This is Maddie & Holden's story. All three of the sisters are best friends, Maddie, Max and Chloe. Maddie & Max are twins & Chloe is a year younger. The sisters grew up playing baseball in Columbus but in their Junior & Senior year, their dad had received a promotion and so he moved the family to Armitage California.
The story goes from their and the new school at Armitage High. Their dad gets them to try out with the Pitbulls, an all guy team full of hotness & arrogance. This gives Maddie, Maxi and Chloe somewhat of an incentive to show them what they can do.
Holden, their captain of the Pitbulls, have a problem with the girls joining the team and him and his best friend Luke try to sabotage their playing from the get go. Holden, them realizes these girls can play and the fiestiness of Maddie is getting to him. Can he trust her with his secrets? Can Maddie let someone as arrogant and bossy as Holden in her heart?
This book at first didn't draw me in as much as the other books I have read from this author, but after 40% of the book, it got better and enjoyed the rest! I cannot wait for Max's story
