Summary

A brand new boxset of three sports romance standalones from USA Today best-selling author, Leslie Pike! Baseball runs in the Swift family’s blood. It’s part of their DNA.

Charismatic Memphis Mavericks catcher Atticus is used to being pursued. Then he spots Charlotte across the room. Why isn’t she paying him any attention?

As a respected sports agent, Brick keeps focused on his clients. Old wounds have blocked the path to his heart. All that changes when January ignites a flash fire that burns away the scars.

Bristol is the only Swift who doesn’t give a damn about baseball or its players. After all, she’s a physician not a groupie. Maybe tall Texan pitcher, Sawyer, can convince her to reconsider.

Includes: The Curve, The Closer and The Cannon...and new extended epilogues!

Amazing Series!

This boxed set includes three novels: The Curve, The Closer, and The Cannon. I highly recommend this series.

The Curve: This is the first book in the Swift series. Wow! I loved it! Atticus and Charlotte's story is so sweet and heartwarming! Atticus, a charming playboy, is such a good man, caring and supportive. Charlotte is beautiful, strong, and caring. They are perfect together. Charlotte's daughter Mallory is a beautiful teenager, strong, and resilient. The story is well written and engaging. Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell did an amazing job with the narration. They are perfect as Atticus and Charlotte. I enjoyed it!

The Closer: This is the second book in the Swift series, a Sports Romance. I love this series! Brick and January‘s short story is beautifully written, fast-paced, emotional, funny, and heartwarming. They are such wonderful characters! Brick's past is so heartbreaking! It was great to have news from Atticus and Charlotte from The Curve, book one in the series. The Swift brothers are amazing. Maxine Mitchell and Joe Arden did an excellent job with the narration. I enjoyed it!

The Cannon: This is the third book in the Swift series, a Sports Romance. I love this series. This is a standalone in the series, but it is definitely better to listen to this series in order. Sawyer and Bristol's story is beautifully written, sweet, and very emotional. I loved to follow them in their journey to love. The supporting characters are great. I loved the Epilogues. Aaron Shedlock and CJ Bloom did an outstanding job with the narration. I enjoyed it.

A nice collection to listen to

The curve
That was one tough topic the author chose to write about. She explores the loss of a loved one through three characters: a man who lost his son, a woman who lost her sister, and a boy who lost his parents. Three colors of grief and pain.

Parish has become a recluse writer since he lost his little boy in the most horrible way. He dulls his pain with alcohol–a lot–and meaningless hookups. He even has distanced himself from his family. He’s only vaguely aware of his surroundings, until Scarlett and Sam come to live in the house next door. He’s the dark grief, the one that drowns you and never let you go.

Sam is Scarlett’s nephew, and she got custody of him after her sister and her husband died in a car accident. She has no idea of how to take care of a teenager, and that takes up so much of her mind that she doesn’t really have time to grieve. Until something reminds her that her sister is gone. She’s the grey grief, like a stormy sky before the rain.

Sam has not only lost his parents, but also lost himself. He tries various things to ease his pain, like trying to be someone else, older, or on the opposite clinging to his past routines. In the end, it is by building a new life with his aunt and their neighbor that he’s going to reinvent himself. He’s the white grief, a dense fog in which to lose oneself.

With grief in common, they connect, they butt heads, they help each other. As they don’t experience pain the same way, they don’t really understand each other unless they communicate. Which they try to do, not always successfully.

Especially during the big conflict. It felt contrived. The way Scarlett reacted seemed like she didn’t know Parish at all, when he was actually a hero. And she refused to talk it out. It was a bit out of character in my opinion.

The romance overall left me frustrated. There was a lot of lust for sure, and they probably become misery friends, sharing a similar pain and trying to ease it in each other, but I didn’t see love. Love doesn’t turn its back like Scarlett does during the big conflict.

The narration was excellent. Both narrators know how to make the listener feel all the feels. They’re also good at the sexy times. Good balance!

The closer
It may have been the most emotional story in this box set. It follows the oldest Swift child, Brick, who’s in his forties and has sworn off love after a personal tragedy. Until he meets January, also in her forties, and a sports agent too. There’s attraction and lots of common ground between them. After several missed opportunities, they start a casual thing, that turns more serious as time goes by. And then she ends up pregnant.

I absolutely loved that the characters were in their forties. They weren’t always acting exactly like their age, but with people with no strings attached, their more playful manners could be understandable. Their fast friendship and growing feelings weren’t part of their long term plans, and I enjoyed seeing them learning how to navigate around them.

The narrators from the previous book come back for this one, and again they nail it. Especially the male narrator who almost made me cry in Brick’s saddest moments. Not a lot of drama–at least not in their relationship–and many romantic moments made the story a delightful read for sure.

The cannon
Please give me the independent professional woman and the playful younger puppy of a man any day! Add to it some deeper topics, like kids in foster care, family tragedies, and missing siblings, and you get a good love story.

Sawyer grew up in the system, not always in the best environment, and was lucky to become a baseball player at a late age. Closed to Atticus and Brick Swift, he feels immediately attracted to they sister when he meets her. He decides that he’ll woo her until she can’t resist anymore. And you know what? It was charming and fun to see the length he was ready to go to win her heart.

They were a sexy couple. I also loved watching them connect through Sawyer’s knowledge of the system and Bristol’s inability to conceive. They were clearly made for each other, despite the rocky start–Bristol has no interest in sports or baseball players, even avoids them. I hadn’t seen so much seduction and chemistry in a while.

Narrators changed this time, and though the female narrator did a perfect Bristol, I felt the male narrator wasn’t as good as Sawyer. He lacked the playfulness I associated with the character. Still a pretty good listen!

Conclusion
Comprised of two shorter stories and a longer one, all with a good mix of fun, sexiness and emotions, voiced by very good narrators, it’s a nice collection to listen to.

Love it!

Book 1

A quick, cute, A bit steamy and a bit funny story. I listened to the audio of this and I enjoyed it.
I think the narrators did an excellent job telling it and giving the characters a voice.

Book 2

Loved listening to these two narrators tell Brick and January's story. Two sports agents who meet at a banquet and hit it off right away. They try to prove that they can be friends without benefits but the more time they spend together they find out their attraction to each other makes it difficult. I enjoyed this and look forward to diving into the next Swift story.

Book 3

This one is my favorite one in the series. This is Bristol (the sister) and Sawyer's (Brick's client) story. I listened to the audio book. I enjoyed listening to the narrator's bring a voice to the characters to tell this cute, funny and sweet story.

Heartwarming and Sizzling Romance Collection!

~ The Curve (Swift #1)
What a sweet, heartfelt, sizzling romance! Atticus Swift was enjoying the single life as a professional baseball catcher. When he met Charlotte Bay, a devoted single mother to a sweet but scarred young teen, his whole world shifted. Sparks ignited between them instantly, but Charlotte holds back choosing to focus on her daughter, Mallory, and helping her feel safe and happy. Atticus can't explain it but is determined to get to know them both. I loved the way the relationship between all three of them grew organically as they learned to trust each other, building a strong foundation, along with the sizzling, slow-burn sexual tension between Atticus and Charlotte. Atticus really made me swoon as he took his time with them both. Charlotte is a great mom who puts her daughter first and Mallory reflects the strength and resilience of her mom. The family gatherings were hilarious and added so much warmth, and tenderness to this story as well.
I always enjoy the narrations by Joe Arden, and Maxine Mitchell. They did an incredible job bringing this heartwarming and sizzling story to life, immersing me in their world, and making this fun, heartfelt, and sizzling romance even more irresistible!

~ The Closer (Swift #2)
This quick listen is another heartwarming, sweet and steamy romance in the Swift family series. Brick and January are an amazing couple. Brick lost his wife and their unborn baby years earlier, and he never thought he would love again. January is a successful sports agent and isn't looking for a relationship. When they have a chance meeting, they have so much in common, they become instant friends. That is the foundation to the sparks that ignite between them, and they are unable to remain 'just friends'. January is everything Brick didn't know he was looking for, and Brick is a sweet, fun, and sexy southern gentleman, she can't help but fall for him too. I loved how their relationship grew and developed along with the help of Bricks' hilarious, quirky, and loving family.
Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell continue to bring this heartwarming and sizzling story to life. They portrayed the fun and flirty banter between Brick and January beautifully while breaking down both of their walls. I enjoyed their performances that made me laugh, smile and swoon all at the same time.

~ The Cannon (Swift #3)
This third book in the Swift series took my breath away! It was sweet, and charming with lots of heartfelt emotion. Bristol Swift is strong, independent, and could care less about baseball. When Sawyer "The Cannon" Tom joins the Mavericks, his eye lands on Sawyer. He never thought she wouldn't be interested, and her confidence and wit makes him want her even more. As luck would have it she gives him a chance, and he soon realizes she is out of his league. As they spend time together, learning more about each other, they start to fall for each other. But they both have secrets from their past that cause them to hold back. Will their secrets and fear keep them from opening their hearts to each other? This was such a sweet, tender story that broke my heart at times. I loved the way that Sawyer and Bristol came together and made each other stronger, and more confident. They are so great together, he is so sweet and swoony, and Bristol really challenges him, giving him what he has always wanted.
Aaron Shedlock and CJ Bloom did a great job bringing these characters and story to life. They delivered all the wit, emotion, and steam and I was totally lost in their performance. I really enjoyed listening to this fun, touching, sweet and steamy romance!

Great collection

What a great collection with talented narrators to bring them all to life.

The Curve
First, there is the story which has depth and feeling and a lesson to be learned. Atticus and Charlotte have chemistry but they are also living life and there are issues they have to weave their way through which is true for all of us. I also enjoyed Mallory's character. She has suffered but finds her way with Atticus' help. I loved seeing her grow and learn about how to deal with life issues. Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell were great to listen to. I loved it from start to finish.

The Closer
Loved listening to Brick and January's love story. I loved how they are both settled in their lives and careers, but when they meet, the chemistry is off the charts, and being friends isn't enough. They have a great story with some twists and a HEA. Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell are great to listen to for this book. Loved every minute of it.

The Cannon
This book gave me all the feels and I still have them. One of the best books I have listened to in a while. This book starts with Bristol Swift, sister to Brick, and Atticus whom we loved from the first two books in this series. Bristol is not a baseball fan so when the hot pitcher, Sawyer Tom, takes a shine to her she is resistant at first but he has patience and determination and their love story is fantastic. I loved everything about this book, the characters are all likable and loveable and just felt like family. I felt like I was part of this Swift family, taken into their love and embrace just like Sawyer. The story is well thought out and entertaining. There are surprises and moments when you wonder what will happen. You feel the love of this family and I was excited for Sawyer and Bristol to find their forever. Aaron Shedlock and CJ Bloom were amazing to listen to. They kept me captivated from beginning to end and there is a fantastic epilogue that brought tears to my eyes as well as goosebumps.

Fabulous Trifecta of Amazing Romance🎧📚Novels📚🎧

Leslie Pike knocks it out of the park with this fabulous collection of sports romance novels, each one being just as amazing as the other. Each book features a different member of the Swift family and while each book stands on its own, the characters interconnect and crossover into each other’s books and knowing their backstory adds depth, plus seeing them again is like seeing an old friend. The first book, “The Curve” is Atticus Swift and Charlotte Bay’s story. He is a catcher for the Memphis Mavericks who has been sidelined with an injury and she is a single mom of a daughter struggling with insecurities. Charlotte grabbed his attention at a family party but she wanted nothing to do with him, but that did not stop him and he found an in and took it. It was great to watch their relationship grow into something deep and loving. The second book, “The Closer”, is Brick and January’s story, the two meet while negotiating contracts for one of their players. Brick has not been interested in any woman for years and January stirs up a feeling he has not felt in a really long time. January impressed Brick, not only as a successful and well respected female sports agent working in what is a man’s world, but with the way she carries herself. The chemistry between these two is smoking hot and watching them fall for each other was something special. The third book, “The Cannon” is Bristol Swift and Sawyer Tom’s story and wow, what a story it is. She is a doctor and having been around ballplayers, she has vowed to not get involved with any of them. Sawyer, a pitcher, is the latest addition to the Memphis Mavericks and falls head over heals for Bristol, who will not give him the time of day but with her family in his corner he does not give up on her. This is another great love story, and like the first two books, the emotions pour off the pages and straight into your heart. I highly recommend these wonderfully written and plotted stories, they will warm your heart and captivate your attention from start to end. The characters are fantastic too. Lesile Pike, thank you for these amazing stories and emotional rollercoaster rides.

🎧📚🎧And for the amazing narration and lineup of talent, Leslie Pike cast the perfect narrators to bring her characters and story to life. Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell made a great team and delivered flawless performances in the first two books, “The Curve” and “The Closer” and Aaron Shedlock and CJ Bloom do the same in “The Cannon”. Each had a complete understanding of the characters they were portraying, gave them their own voice, one that fit their character’s persona perfectly, and they were believable in every role they played. They set the perfect tone for the story, captured all the character’s emotions and projected them into their performance. These entertaining storytellers are versatile voice artists and a pleasure to listen to. Their narration enhances these already brilliant stories to another level. Thank you for these fabulous listens.

Great series - best as the trilogy boxset!

I listened to each of Leslie Pike’s “Swift” series books when they first came out as audio, and really enjoyed them. What’s not to like? Fantastic writing, great sports romances, truly great characters - and four of the very, very best narrators in the biz (some of the top faves on my list)!!

When she asked if I would re-listen to the new collection of the series now it was being released all together with bonus material, I jumped at the opportunity. Of course I wanted to come back and re-listen to a series I adored and get to listen to some extra information about all of the characters! The bonus material is extended epilogues, and wow - this truly adds so much and I know that it’s turned an excellent series into an amazing one!

Anyone who hasn’t read or listened to anything from Leslie Pike before, especially this series, really needs to pick it up now! This particular trilogy is now only one credit! It’s totally worth it (I mean, just look at who’s narrating! Joe Arden? Yes, please! Aaron Shedlock? Uh huh!! Maxine Mitchell? Voice of perfection. CJ Bloom? Take my money now!).

Perfect scores for writing and perfect scores for narrator performances. Everyone should go grab this from Audible now!

I received an advance copy from the author, and this is my honest feedback - thank you so much Leslie! I enjoyed the series even more the second time!

Wonderful Family Saga

I love how the author intertwined the entire Swift family into the stories from the Grandparents to the kids. Each story had either heartache or a challenge to overcome and they tackled it all together. The descriptions of the landscape and and setting were great, I could see it all. I want to go to the Swift family parties! I loved how Leslie Pike did the summary at the end of the final book; we are often left hanging as to what happened to the characters lives. Emotional sweet stories with tasteful steamy scenes. I wish Joe Arden read the last story in his southern accent since Sawyer was supposed to have an accent. Great deal for 3 books. I recommend this listen!
