Alisa @ Papercuttts - Gosh, I love and miss the baseball game experience. I live in Brazil now and there’s none of that down here, but I have such good memories of going to baseball games when I was younger. I might have to read one of these to get my fix!

Andi - I have been a sucker for anything baseball (books and movies) with a romance since seeing Summer Catch all those years ago. I’m so excited for Play On. And will check out the others!

Excellent post!

Alexa S. - Because baseball isn’t really played in the Philippines, I only knew of it and never really experienced it until I came back to the US! I like reading about it though, and definitely want to check out some of the books you’ve recommended. Hope your team has a better season than everyone is predicting they will!

Maggie @ Just a Couple More Pages - I love this idea! Sports books are some of my faves and there are definitely ones here that I haven’t read/aren’t on my TBR list.

Leah - I LOVE THIS! In school I played a number of sports, but that was mainly because my friends had all signed up. Apart from a few, I’m not a big sports fan/player/watcher, but I LOVE me some sports in books!

Stephanie at The Insouciant Sophisticate - Padres fan here-so excited for the return of baseball! I actually do have some reason to hope based on our off-season but you never know!

Kelly - I’ve been putting this one off because a) 400+ pages?! and b) I just don’t know how it can live up to PtL. BUT you are one of several bloggers who have promised me that this story is better, so I think I’m just going to have to put on my big girl panties and get this read!

May 31, 2013 - 1:49 pm

tabithasbookblog - I finished this one in one sitting as well! it was so good, and I loved Ryan and Beth’s chemistry! This one was better than the first, and I can’t wait to see how the next book plays out. (:

May 30, 2013 - 3:36 pm

Quinn @ Quinn's Book Nook - Estelle! I loved Pushing the Limits more than Dare You To. I still loved this book, but PtL was just, I don’t know. Love love love for me.

Haha, yes Ryan is always telling us he doesn’t lose, which didn’t get a little frustrating. But I still loved this book. Katie McGarry writes my kind of books 🙂

May 30, 2013 - 2:32 pm

Bookworm1858 - I definitely agree that this book is better than PTL-I loved Beth and Ryan’s stories and he brought the swoon hard for me.

May 29, 2013 - 7:54 pm

Molli - Glad you liked this one, Estelle! I didn’t, but I really do want to maybe snag it from the library to give it another try at some point. I loved PTL SO much that it seems wrong I didn’t love DYT. Maybe if I read it again, I’ll be more into it. 🙂

May 29, 2013 - 2:03 pm

Alexa Y. - Oh, your review is PERFECTION. It explains perfectly how I felt about Ryan and Beth and Ryan-and-Beth. It’s such a good book! I’m still swooning thinking about Ryan. Just saying.

May 29, 2013 - 12:45 am

Suzy Soule - Sounds like a must read to me–can I skip book one, do you think?

May 28, 2013 - 3:35 pm

Rachel - Well, now I have to read this book. There’s something about your review that makes it sound so addicting. I know I tried it earlier and couldn’t get into it, but I don’t think I was in the right mindset at the time.

Cassie - This is up next for me and I must read it before Rules of Summer comes to my Kindle! SUPER EXCITED since I know how much you loved it 😀
