Philadelphia authors Allison Hobbs and Karen E. Quinones Miller teamed up to pen the smoldering new novel “Hittin’ It Out the Park,” through the imprint of erotica author Zane.  This novel focuses on love, lust, and deception in the backdrop of a baseball diamond.

Fashion model Cheryl does her best to stay above water on the salary she has, so in the meantime she canoodles and caresses her way into rich men’s bank accounts.  I’m not saying she’s a gold digger, but if the shovel is appropriate… As she seeks the flavor of the month, she makes sure to keep her dark past under tight wraps.

While at a high-end party, she bumps into country bumpkin Randy Alston, who was a minor league player for the New York Yankees shop teams.  At first, Cheryl attempts to dismiss the clumsy baller, but he can’t leave her alone and they end up enjoying each other’s company.

A $120 million dollar contract to play third base for the Yankees and a marriage proposal later, the Alston’s couldn’t have a more fruitful life, but Cheryl’s past is trying to catch up with her.

And then of course, there are the home wreckers.  Enter Amanda ‘Sexy’ Sanchez, the crafty temptress who finds amusement in opulent, desperate men.  She comes from prestige and privilege, so toying with someone’s man is no big deal to her.

The Alstons eventually cross paths with Sexy at a soiree and Cheryl instantly regrets making her acquaintance, as she makes no subtle moves to try to sleep with Randy.

“Hittin’ It Out the Park” is an easy read and a page-turner if you’re into this kind of genre.  My issue with these types of books is that the women are always the same kind of female: gold digging, deceitful, and catty.  None of them really are power players or strong roles and that was unfortunate to me as I was reading.  But if you like soap operas and erotica, this is the book for you!
