Tucker Wilde’s life is in a tailspin. Twenty-four hours ago, he was one of the top second basemen in the all-shifter professional baseball league. Now, he’s lost his starting spot to a rookie, been dumped by his girlfriend, and had a night of explosive passion with a man—a teammate at that. He can’t get Dixon out of his mind—even though Tucker still believes himself to be straight. With his career in jeopardy, he’s unsure where to turn or how to fix the mess.
Dixon Foxx is a baseball prodigy, though a perfectionist father stole any joy he might find in the game. He only sticks with it because it’s all he knows—and because of Tucker, the man Dixon’s wanted since they met. His dreams come true one night, only to turn into a nightmare the next morning when Tucker blows off their incredible time together as a drunken mistake, never to happen again.
The life of a switch hitter is all about mixing things up. Tucker excels at it. Only this time, the game isn’t on the line—his heart is.
I really enjoy a good lighthearted read with little drama. Switch Hitter was exactly that. There was little drama involved in this read but there was a lot of baseball, practical jokes, and some team building. Cheyenne Meadows created a lighthearted read with a lot of amusement involved. The only drama in this book was not truly dwelled upon. There was a small amount of it but the drama was handled in true Dixon and Tucker fashion.
Dixon and Tucker are both shifters and both play for a shifter baseball team. So the fact that they are shifters is non grata. Neither is the fact that Dixon is gay. What is a problem for Dixon is, he is attracted to Tucker and Tucker has been nothing but straight since they have met. Dixon has pretty much fallen head over hills in love with Tucker but he will never tell him because he does not want to lose his friendship.
On the night that Tucker was pretty much benched by the coach for not living up to his potential, his girlfriend at the time dumps him because being with someone that is benched is not the ideal person for her. Tucker decides that it would be ok to proceed to drink his worries away and that is how Dixon finds him.
Dixon knowing that Tucker is upset and a lot drunk takes matters into his own hands and decides to drag him out of the party they are attending and get him home and sober before letting him leave.
Little does Dixon or Tucker realize this night is going to be a night that will set all sorts of changes in motion and neither of their lives will be the same. After a night of what starts out helping his best friend end up in a safe place to sleep off his drunkenness turns into a night of complete exploration of one another and the hottest sexy times of either of their lives, will Tucker wake the next morning to regret what he instigated or will he accept what happened between them and figure out where to go from there.
I truly enjoyed this read. It is full of humor and pranks. It was full of mated pairs and two very exciting men trying to find their way in a confusing time in their lives. Cheyenne made this read so enjoyable that I will be going back and reading the books in this series since this is the first in I have read. I look forward to reading future books in this series. Amazing read.
