Praise for HARDBALL:

“Dash Wallace is a dirty talking, sexy professional baseball player who falls hard for the girl next door, but beware… your heart will take a beating as you watch him struggle with sticking to all he’s ever known at the risk of losing the best thing that ever happened to him. Hardball is one of those books that will suck you in and won’t let you go until you devour every last, juicy bite.”

Sawyer Bennett, NY Times Bestselling Author


“Fiery hot and enticingly realistic, CD Reiss’s captivating writing, complex characters and explosive love scenes make Hard Ball an irresistible modern day romance.”

Katy Evans, NY Times Bestselling Author





Perfect ass.

Perfect arms.

Perfect swagger.


They call Dash Wallace the Diamond King.

He’s the hottest commodity in baseball and in the bedroom.

When he runs the bases, every woman’s eyes are glued to his stunning body and a smile that puts the night lights to shame.

I’m no queen. I’m a regular girl with a regular job. I just watch him on TV and from the bleachers, season after season.


Girls like me grab a guy like that one in a million times.

My number just came up, and he is as spectacular in bed as he is on the field.

But there’s not a woman in the world who can distract Dash Wallace from the game. Not for a moment. Not even me.

Until the night I do. And everything changes.

Review by Shannon P: 3.5 stars

Vivian is a school librarian and a huge baseball fan.  She meets Dash, the short stop for the Los Angeles Dodgers, at a ball signing for underprivileged kids.  They don’t start off in the best way, but there’s a chemistry between them that will not be denied.  He’s only looking for a “hometown girl”, but she wants more.  Will he be able to give her what she needs or will he strike out?  “I’ll walk the bases with you.”   You don’t even have to be a fan of baseball in order to understand that quote and want that with someone.

I love the way Ms. Reiss created these characters as strong yet vulnerable.  I absolutely adored Vivian’s dad.  He had me laughing out loud at times.  I wish there had been more of a “grab” factor for me, but I still enjoyed the story.  The sex scenes are well written and smoking hot!

i give Hardball 3.5 stars.

*I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.


Lisa G’s Review: 3.5 Stars

Vivian is a huge fan of baseball. She is also a librarian – during a school “outing” ( get it outing? ), she meets Dash, the gifted short stop baseball player for the LA Dodgers while getting a baseball signed for her dad. Dash is the alpha male with attitude during the first meeting, which rubs Vivian the wrong way – BUT – she cannot deny the chemistry between them and neither can he. Dash sees his way into her life – something is missing, literally; and he needs Vivian’s help. The sparks begin to fly. The texting begins – or should I call it sexting? 😉

CD Reiss has a way with words – she is a phenomenal author. These characters are brought to life in the words she writes – you are drawn to them and want to know more. Both characters have different backgrounds, both have different problems – yet, they are able to help each other with love and understanding.

Batter Up!

3.5 stars from me!

About the Author:


CD Reiss is a USA Today bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up she’s at the well hauling buckets.

Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels.

She’s frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn’t ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood.

If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.
