Happy Audio Release Day Leslie Pike, Joe Arden and Maxine Mitchell!

Love is not a game Brick Swift wants to play again. 

Heartbreaking memories have a hold on his heart. 

The respected sport agent’s clients have become the sole recipients of his time and attention. 

January Jordan is at the top of her game, negotiating the year’s biggest contract for her Memphis Maverick client. 

Free as a bird, she’s not looking for anyone to fulfill an already satisfying life. 

One chance meeting changes life’s direction and ignites a fire that lights the way. 

While this is part of the Swift series, each can be listened to as a stand-alone. Each is about a Swift sibling, but for the best listener experience, listen to them in order.

THE CLOSER is available now:

My Thoughts:

I was excited to get the second audiobook in this series.  I couldn’t wait to see what our author was going to do as a follow up to The Curve.  Then my two favorite narrators return for the next inning.  This time Mr. Arden is related to the male character from Curve and Ms. Mitchell shows that women can work in a man’s world.  Between the author’s story and our narrators reading to me, I was hooked before the first chapter was even over. 


Brick is the man that works in the athlete’s best interest. He has a soft spot for a man that we may only “meet” briefly but it shows his compassion. January, interesting choice for the name of our main character, is a woman who makes you realize to never make assumptions. They are two people that seem so comfortable with the other. Our author shows that you can be over the age of 30 and have a chance at romance – life isn’t over after a certain age. 


If you like to watch America’s favorite pastime, this book will be lover long before the game is finished. But if you do a marathon of the whole series, you might get a little closer to nine innings. But if you need help passing the time as you’re trying to get through chores, you can’t go wrong by listening to this novella – I know it did mine. 


I loved listening to how their relationship started and grew as the chapters went by. Our narrators did a great job in conveying their chemistry. This is something the spoken word can do for a reader as opposed to reading the words ourselves. We get just enough to give us a chuckle or two so that we’re not laughing at the characters but with them.  


This was a sweet read that was over way before I was ready for it to be. Good thing is that I have another book to look forward to in the Swift series. Then as I’m working out in the yard more, I can do a marathon instead of thinking how humid the day is and how much I hate raking leaves. It even makes the commute to work more pleasurable.
