Release Blitz and Book Review: Jock Blocked by Pippa Grant
Disclaimer: I was provided an advance reader copy by the publisher in exchange for my unbiased review and opinions.
I have been looking forward to meeting some more of the Pippaverse characters. We get to meet MacKenzie (Sarah's best friend America's Geekheart) and Brooks, (Parker's baby brother Stud In The Stacks). You don't need to read these other books to enjoy this story, but it definitely adds more to the experience!

When Brooks gets traded to the Copper Valley Fireballs, he has no idea he has to contend with MacKenzie, Fireball's #1 fan, and someone who's willing to do anything to keep her baseball team scoring. But they'll soon discover there's more to life than scoring at baseball. Hopefully, they'll both walk away winners.
This book is a love letter to baseball and it will make your heart burst without skimping on the laughs. Out of all the sports romances I have read (and there have been many), this book has become one of my favorites. I call this is an instant classic.
Brooks is swoony, quirky, adorable, and the perfect match for Mackenzie's brand of "crazy". Move over Rhett, you have been dethroned as my favorite Pippaverse Book Boyfriend!
Seeing our favorite characters adds flair to an already fantastic story. I would say that in this author's books, no character is "just a secondary character". While we get to see the hilarious shenanigans and those laugh out loud moments that make these books so fantastic, Jock Blocked goes way deeper than that.
Besides being a love letter to baseball, Jock Blocked is a beautiful message of self-love and acceptance. A reminder that we don't need to be perfect in order to receive and give love. And I don't know about you, but during these trying circumstances when the world's focus seems to be in what divides us, this message of acceptance and community is more important than ever. I dare say this is Pippa's best book to date and it'll definitely stay with me forever. I have finally found a comfort read I know I'll go back to!
Five glowing stars for Jocked Blocked!
