Earning A Ring - Kristina Matthews Virtual Tour

More Than A Game #4
Kristina Mathews
Releasing on January 19, 2016.
Lyrical Shine

For Rachel Parker, covering the San Francisco Goliaths is the perfect opportunity to launch her career as a serious reporter. But she didn’t bargain on Bryce Baxter, the team’s star shortstop, tempting her more non-professional aspirations. After tearing up the base paths with him, she finds herself with a little problem, and Bryce might be the only man who can save the game.

Bryce Baxter should be living the dream. His team just won the World Series and he just signed the multi-year contract of his career. But his field of dreams has been overtaken by a fiery redheaded reporter, who’s bearing a news flash that will change both of their lives forever…


Rachel has found herself in quite a pickle.  She is pregnant, by Bryce an MVP baseball player.  The kicker?  It's the team she interviews regularly and relationships between her and a player is looked down upon.  Bryce has the solution but how does he prove that he's willing to give up his playboy ways and get Rachel to trust him?
Bryce is one hottie mctottie that is hard to resist.  He's charming and loving.  His love for his daughter melted my heart.  He's loyal to those he cares about. In trying to protect Rachel from what he perceives will upset her too much and stress her out.  
Rachel loves Bryce but learning to trust that's he's over his playboy ways is difficult.  Her character is extremely believable and reacts the way most people would in the "real world".  She's loyal almost to a fault, and I was rooting for true love to win out despite all the difficulties thrown at Rachel and Bryce left and right.
Earning A Ring had me enthralled from the first chapter.  If you enjoy romances that have heart, true love, forgiveness and a touch of baseball this is a book I highly recommend.

Kristina Mathews doesn't remember a time when she didn't have a book in her hand. Or in her head. But it wasn't until she turned forty that she confessed the reason the laundry never made it out of the dryer was because she was busy writing.

While she resigned from teaching with the arrival of her second son, she's remained an educator in some form. As a volunteer, parent club member or para educator, she finds the most satisfaction working with emergent and developing readers, helping foster confidence and a lifelong love of books.

Kristina lives in Northern California with her husband of more than twenty years, two sons and a black lab. A veteran road tripper, amateur renovator and sports fanatic. She hopes to one day travel all 3,073 miles of Highway 50 from Sacramento, CA to Ocean City, MD, replace her carpet with hardwood floors and serve as a “Ball Dudette” for the San Francisco Giants.
