Review – Curveball by Mariah Dietz

Curveball by Mariah Dietz

If there is one thing I loooooove in my books, It’s the deep, raw all consuming feeling you get when you you’re wrapped in so much ANGST! I literally CRAVE it. The more gut wrenching the better and Mariah Dietz NAILED IT! For me CURVEBALL was OUT OF THIS WORLD! My heart pounded and ached, my breathing stopped then came really freaking quick. I swooned. I laughed. I shed tears. I became 100% invested in Coen and Ella. They have my heart. 

What is it about Curveball that is so amazing? 

It’s was the realness. The power Mariah poured so effortlessly into her words. The tug of the descriptions used that just made everything so visible and clear. It was the all consuming feeling that you get when every word hits direct and deep to the soul. It was EVERYTHING. 

I devoured this book. Nothing was going to stop me finishing it. I lived, breathed and felt every second and never wanted it to end. This was my first book by Mariah, it won’t be my last. She has just landed herself a brand new stalker that has just gone and clicked every book she ever released. 

Curveball, was unexpected and hella surprising. I don’t think I could love it more if I tried! 5 all consuming stars!

Shakespeare believed there was always humor in tragedy and tragedy in humor.

My life proved his theory as fact.

At eighteen I was a single parent moving to this small town to be with the man I loved. The one who was supposed to love and cherish me in return.

Finding out he had a wife was tragic.

Remaining in love with him in spite of her was more tragic.

My mom and best friend setting me up on a long string of blind dates was an ongoing tragedy.

Nine years later, I’ve learned to see the humor in most situations.

My mom and best friend setting me up on disastrous blind dates.

My son’s jokes.

The fire alarm going off each time I cook.

My constant bright spot always adding to the humor was my son, Hayden. But when Hayden had a life-threatening allergic reaction, the man who came to help my little boy became my own savior. His laugh, his smile, and the way his eyes lit up when he spoke to my son made him a beacon of light in both our lives.

But I wasn’t the only one who noticed him.

When I began having feelings for the man my best and only friend had fallen for, I knew following my heart would once again lead to a fresh round of heartbreak.

Love led me to this town.

Lies kept me there.

Would history repeat itself?

Or had life just thrown me another Curveball?
