Review for “Walk Off (Double Play Series Book 5)” by Nicole Rodrigues

Nicholas “Nico” Johnson, aka ‘Hulk’. The man got past all my defenses despite my efforts to keep him at a distance. It’s a lost cause because our bodies call to each other, like a moth to a flame, we give in. Time and time again we come together and crackle like lightning. I said we were done, for good this time, but the funny thing about desire is, you don’t tell it when it’s done, it tells you. Our desire would never be done, oh no baby, it was just getting started.

An impenetrable wall was built around her heart. That’s what she said anyway, but I didn’t care. Lacey Turner was my kryptonite, my Achilles heel. We were the golden couple, the love that everyone secretly wished for themselves, but obstacles keep getting put in our way, testing the strength of our connection.

Our bodies know exactly what to do behind closed doors, but we can’t seem to get it right elsewhere. As long as I can keep her in my bed, I’ll find a way to make everything else fall into place. Just when I think I have it right, there are those obstacles again, but this time we have no choice but to overcome them.

The game between us has always been tied, but with so many extra innings one of us is bound to hit a walk off to end it. Lacey finally does it with those two little words…and no they aren’t home run.

This is book 5 in the Double Play Series and should be read in order. Mature content. 18+.


My Review:

five star rating its a writers life for me book review

I’ve loved every single one of the Double Play books and Walk Off doesn’t let me down.

I’ve been anticipating and anxiously awaiting Nico and Lacey’s Story since they first got together back in Damon and Bella’s book.

So, first this has a surprise sub-genre plot that isn’t usually my favorite (can’t tell you what it is because it’s a surprise twist and I’m not going to spoil it for you) but damn – the way Nicole Rodrigues writes it makes me love it!

Nico and Lacey are beautifully broken and piece each other back together. On again and off again for years, they heal each other with their mutual passion, love, and stubbornness. Their chemistry is fire and their love for one another conquers all their obstacles (and boy are there a lot!!!).

This book checks all my boxes:

  • Strong, feisty female lead – check
  • Dominant sexy male lead – check
  • Super steamy scenes – check
  • Major emotional and physical chemistry with lots of wit/banter give & take – check
  • All the feels – check
  • Happy ever after – check

Highly recommended for the sports romance fans!
