Portrait of baseball player with bare chest holding bat in locker room




Perfect ass.

Perfect arms.

Perfect swagger.


They call Dash Wallace the Diamond King.

Hes the hottest commodity in baseball and in the bedroom.

When he runs the bases, every womans eyes are glued to his stunning body and a smile that puts the night lights to shame.

Im no queen. Im a regular girl with a regular job. I just watch him on TV and from the bleachers, season after season.


Girls like me grab a guy like that one in a million times.

My number just came up, and he is as spectacular in bed as he is on the field.

But theres not a woman in the world who can distract Dash Wallace from the game. Not for a moment. Not even me.

Until the night I do. And everything changes.


Hardball is a SMOKING HOT, SEXY romance with a touch of angst and a ton of heart from CD Reiss. It’s a fun, witty, full-length standalone meant for the over-eighteen crowd.

Hardball Teaser 1




Have you ever met someone that throws themselves completely into the job that they love?

For Vivian, being a librarian extends far beyond the basics. Each child that comes to her library means the world to her. Some do not have nutritious meals, so Vivian always makes sure they have a healthy snack for the day. Special trips outside the school are also a bonus. Something Vivian puts so much thought and effort into. Just like the trip to the ball field……

Staying out of the limelight is hard to do when you are on the top of your game. For Dash Wallace, his routine and superstitious beliefs shape the way he lives his life. Each variance to his quirks can affect his game….or so he thinks. While taking time to participate in a meet and greet with fans, Dash comes face to face with Vivian. Instantly – he feels drawn to the woman who is so far from his ‘usual’.

When a memento that Dash believes is attached to his playing ability vanishes, he turns to Vivian for help. After all – he really needs the item back. It might help that this incident gives him the opening he needs to discover what it is about Vivian that gets to him.

Dash…Dash…Dash…..what a web you weave with your attachments. Vivian didn’t know what was coming her way!! I found myself enjoying the way that Vivian didn’t fall for Dash’s expectations right off the bat. She could have been starry-eyed, but she kept her head going into their relationship. Stepping out of her comfort zone to embrace everything that was a part of being with Dash.

Our sexy as hell ball player….well, he had to learn a few things along the way. Shaking off the habits and ‘good luck charms’ for a chance to experience something ‘new’ with Vivian. Both would learn that time has a way of sneaking up on you. The beginning of the season was coming at the couple like a raging bull. How they would handle things with their relationship would define the future. Although I found things a bit on the predictable side…I still enjoyed the glimpse inside of Vivian and Dash’s relationship.

About CD Reiss

CD Reiss is a USA Today and Amazon bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn’t pick up, she’s at the well, hauling buckets.
Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master’s degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere, but it did embed TV story structure in her head well enough for her to take a big risk on a TV series structured erotic series called Songs of Submission. It’s about a kinky billionaire hung up on his ex-wife, an ingenue singer with a wisecracking mouth; art, music and sin in the city of Los Angeles.
Critics have dubbed the books “poetic,” “literary,” and “hauntingly atmospheric,” which is flattering enough for her to put it in a bio, but embarrassing enough for her not to tell her husband, or he might think she’s some sort of braggart who’s too good to give the toilets a once-over every couple of weeks or chop a cord of wood.
If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.
