🎉New YA Release Plus My Review! STRIKE OUT (The Barlow Sisters book 2) by Jordan Ford🎉

Strike OutStrike Out by Jordan Ford

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

STRIKE OUT is book two in the Barlow Sisters series and although it’s a standalone, the plot flows better if read in order. Max’s story is a young adult, opposites attract (baseballer & rocker) clean, contemporary romance. Here’s what I love about Jordan Ford’s writing…not only are they well written and fast paced but they illustrate REAL LIFE connections and explore REAL LIFE problems. It’s so easy sometimes, as a parent, to forget what life’s like as a teenager; the expectations of parents, the hardship of “fitting in”, the pressure to make certain choices. Ms. Ford managed to portray Max and Cairo’s teenage characters fabulously. I FELT the wonder of Max’s first kiss and the giddiness in Cairo’s stomach when he realized his feelings for Max. I EXPERIENCED the fear and shame of getting caught in a lie. I also loved the deep, heartfelt connections between the sisters and the attention to family dynamics. (My sister’s & I were never that close as teenagers but are DEFINITELY very close as adults!) This is a wonderfully sweet coming of age tale with a touch of mystery and a dash of drama! Told from dual POVs with a happy for Max and Cairo end but an “OH NO!” end for little sis, Chloe.

ABOUT THE BOOK:

STRIKE OUT – Barlow Sisters #2
Baseball is her life, but a musician is strumming on her heartstrings. Will they strike a bad chord or make the perfect double play?

Max Barlow never takes her eyes off the ball. With a rare college baseball scholarship up for grabs, she can’t afford to lose focus. But when she accidentally stumbles into the music room on her first day at Armitage High, she can’t help but notice the hot guitarist. And he’s made it clear he wouldn’t mind giving her lessons…

Rock star Cairo Hale has a reputation for being able to play his way into any girl’s heart. But his streak comes to an end with tomboy baseball player Max. While she makes him promise to keep their lessons a secret, it turns out she’s an absolute natural. It looks like Cairo’s generous offer has blossomed into so much more…

Max is torn between her team responsibilities, her newfound passion for the guitar… and her dreamy tutor. When she can no longer balance her double life, Max must make a choice that could change her future for good…

Strike Out is the second standalone book in The Barlow Sisters’ Trilogy, a series of simmering YA contemporary romance novels. If you like endearing characters, love-ballad-worthy chemistry, and a hint of mystery, then you’ll love Jordan Ford’s sports romance series.
