    A Home Run..Fleeing betrayal, Shae Carmen quits her job in Nebraska and heads to St Louis after accepting a job offer at KMMD-TV, as a Reporter and news anchor. Finding out she has been lied to in the worse possible way Shae finds she herself single and struggling to pick up the pieces of life after Alex. But thankfully Carmen and her sisters are a tight knit family and it is that family glue and her faith in the Lord that fills the broken pieces of her life.Rahn Maxwell thought for sure his life would end that night near the detour on Highway 40. His brush with death leaves him shaken and promising never to forget God’s act of mercy. Rahn played the field while he held his ground for the right one. Now after a interview at KMMD-TV he meets the beautiful doll face Shae Carmen, and for a fleeting moment wonders if she is THE ONE?Seeking someone to share your life with, someone who will love only you and be content Pat Simmons invites readers to share these moments in time with Rahn Maxwell and Shae Carmen as they take a hard and honest look at themselves and each other before they find their happily ever after. Sometimes the tragedy that we escape is Gods invitation for us to join Him in His work, while other tragedies we use as a crutch. Maxwell and Shae both learn how through Christ all things are possible no matter what it looks like in the flesh.Throughout the story Rahn and Shae’s relationship starts out beautiful but then life happens. Will Rahn and Shae continue to strike out or will they hit a home run with God as their pitcher? The strong messages of faith had me at one time thinking had I kept my promises to God? I don’t know for sure but I’m certainly convicted. Simmons has a knack for writing stories that make you pause and reflect and this one doesn’t disappoint.One of my favorite quotes in the book was “when fear comes knocking let faith answer it. Once the door is open fear disappears. Its nuggets like this one that kept me turning pages.What an outstanding read!A complimentary copy of this book was provided by the autor for the purpose of this review.

    WOW!!! This was my first read by Pat Simmons and let me tell you it will not be my last. I loved the way that the storyline flowed so smoothly. Her scriptures were well timed and very appropriate, without being preachy or over the top. I loved how Shae and Rahn seemed like normal, everyday people that lived normal everyday lives. They were not so overly wealthy, or so over the top sexy that they were unbelievable.Newscaster Shae Carmen was not looking for love. Her last relationship caused her huge public humiliation and embarrassment. She packs her things and moves to St. Louis, Missouri, in an effort to start fresh from her shame. Super popular baseball player Rahn Maxwell experienced a life-changing trauma that has caused him to re-evaluate the meaning of his life.All the while Shae becomes the darling of a local news station becoming quite well known for the Sunday hats she wears at the close of her news segment. Their paths cross when he comes to the news station to conduct an interview after his trauma. He is immediately smitten with her. Shae on the other hand is not interested. Rahn decides to pursue her and she leads him right to church. They embark on a relationship built on honesty, trust and fidelity. That is until something from Rahn’s past threatens to blow everything out of the water.Can Rahn prove to Shae that not “all Christian men are dogs?” You will have to pick it up to find out. Excellent read! I highly recommend this book.-Reviewed by Cassandra

    It does my heart good to be able to write this review. Pat Simmons has done an incredible job of creating beautiful characters, acknowledging the Lord and composing a well-written story. In this book, you meet Shae. She is one of four God-fearing Carmen sisters. After discovering that her boyfriend has a major secret that he’s been keeping, a broken-hearted Shae evacuates her current residence in Nebraska and heads to St. Louis. At this point, she decides that being in a relationship may not be God’s will for her life. Enter Rahn Maxwell. He is the star outfielder for the St. Louis Cardinals who has been living fancy free until a life-threatening encounter changes everything. Once Rahn sees Shae, he’ll stop at nothing to make her his lady. Fresh off one church-house scandal, Shae is in no way prepared for the fallout of another. Is she safe with Rahn in her life or will Shae strike out again? Grab your copy and find out!Pat Simmons has done a wonderful job writing this love story. What impressed me the most was her ability to put God in the middle of a very heartfelt situation. Throughout this novel, the characters would encounter various trials and tribulations but God was always there to remind them what He said about their situation. The Word of God was ever present in this story as each person quoted it in the appropriate times. Said scriptures were inserted in such a way that made you feel encouraged and not condemned. I look forward to sharing this book with others. It is for these reasons that I say well done Pat Simmons. I give this book Five stars!

    This book was an easy and enjoyable read. The storyline flowed so freely. Shae, one of the Carmen sisters, has always prided herself on being a vessel that God could use. She thought she had also found the same thing in her boyfriend. However, that would prove to be the furthest thing from the truth. Upon being hurt by her boyfriend's secret, she decides to relocate. Leaving Nebraska for St. Louis, in her mind, has to be better than where she is and the situation. She also believed that just maybe God didn't want her to be in a relationship.Upon arriving in St. Louis she meets Rahn of the St. Louis Cardinals. He had been use to living fancy free but a tragic situation caused him to change and look at life differently. He found solace in the church and also found Shae. He would stop at nothing to have her. Is she able to trust again? Will she strike out again? Should she let her guard down? Only God knows.....The book was about people going through trials and tribulations and trusting God in the midst of it all. The author used scriptures and wove them in the storyline wonderfully.

    A Great ReadThis is my first time reading Pat Simmons' work, but it won't be my last time. I truly enjoyed the storyline. Two professional saved people dating in the public eye. A news reporter and a professional baseball player. The chemistry between Shae and Rahn was hot and yet they was able to keep their commitment to God. I liked that the author showed that the couple struggled to remain celibate during courtship and through praying, fasting, family, and friends they were successful. I also liked reading about Rahn's getting save and his daily struggle to remain save as a Christian in the public eye.Pat Simmons has a new fan and I'm looking forward to reading more about the Carmen Sisters.

    Oh, I just love Pat Simmons! I can always count on her to give me a solid read. This story, like her others, was a sweet, Christian romance with the "Picket Fence" ending that I read for. I enjoyed reading the first installment of the Carmen Sisters series; in a way, they reminded me of my three sisters and I. I loved the pace of Rahn and Shae's romance, and the innocence of it; Pat always writes sensual love stories while keeping it PG. I can't wait to read the next installment of this series. I would read it again, and I would recommend it to romance lovers.

    I bought the book because I've liked Mrs. Simmons books before. Wasn't sure I was going to like it because I hate sports. But the book was not filled with a lot of sports jargon and I enjoyed the story. I can't wait until the next book comes out.

    Enjoyed Shae and Rahn's story. Great lesson about taking responsibility for your mistakes. Sharing them can often help others not make the same ones.

    Mrs. Pat has done it once again for us. This book was filled with God's love, compassion, and forgiveness. Great romance book. I had to laugh everytime I read the word swagger.
