    1. Stopping ShortThe CharactersDrew Marshall and Jessica BarnesThe StoryDrew seems to be an average guy trying to overcome his past and live his life I do believe he is presented as a player in the beginning, he really doesn t exhibit any of that type of behavior once he meets Jessica That could be because he and Jessica are thrown into a whirlwind fake engagement within moments of meeting each other Apparently Drew has spit in Ross Parker s jell o because he seems to have a personal vendetta again [...]

    3. I have read all the books in this series, and so decided to read this one when it came out I just did not enjoy this one as much Drew Marshall, a Rockets Short Stop, has a bad boy image problem Jessica Barnes is hired to help him change that image The story provides the reader with the ins and outs of an image consultant, by tracking how and what Jess does for Drew However, there is one slight catch to Jessica s job During their initial meeting one of the players, announces to the media present [...]


    4. Romance novels follow a familiar formula boy meets girl, they fall in love, something happens to break them apart, they get back together Mindy Klasky has been breathing new life into this trite formula with her Diamond Brides series Stopping Short is the 6th book in this series, which finds a candidate for shortstop with the Rockets, Drew Marshall, in the middle of a scandal To handle this mess, his agent hires a company called Image Masters and the company assigns Jessica Barnes to the task Th [...]


    5. Three and a half stars This installment in the series features two people who are each carrying different types of wounds They are thrown together in an unintentional fake fiancee situation when Jessica arrives to save Drew s image and career While a couple of characters from previous books make cameo appearances, they are small and the book is a stand alone read I liked that while each character was attracted to each other, they got to know and trust each other before acting They are in a very [...]

    8. Stopping Short is the 6th book in the romantic series Diamond Brides I ve have been reading romance novels for over 12 years and still enjoy their easier nature I was a little hesitant to pick up this book due to the baseball theme I am not a sports fan by any means, but with Stopping Short I was still able to enjoy the story In fact the main character Jessica isn t very knowledgeable about baseball either And that was just one of the things I love about Jessica Barnes Drew Marshall was decent c [...]


    9. This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.This installment gives an insight into the play dirty side of Journalism Public Relations We may think that celebrities have everything their hearts desire but what they do not have is PRIVACY They are treated as public property and Stopping Short highlights that effectively Klasky has touched upon this issue in most of the titles in this series, it being about a baseball team and all but this one in particular shows how peoples secrets ar [...]

    12. Stopping Short gets 3.5 stars I have been enjoying the Diamond Brides series for a couple of months now and stopping short was no different My only reservation about Stopping Short is that this storyline seemed a little far fetched than the other storylines I did like Jessica s character and the fact that she was trying to find herself Drew s seemingly quick change of character was a little unbelievable for me, but once I read the details of his past, I completely understood his change.


    13. I m not sure why, but I didn t enjoy this one as much as the others I ve read in the series They re all short sweet romance stories, but this one felt quicker than the others it felt too rushed I didn t get as attached to the characters as I did with the other books It was still entertaining, but not as enjoyable as the others Not sure what was missing or maybe it s just me I liked it and still plan on reading in this series.


    14. Since I was lucky enough to get introduced to Mindy Klasky s Diamond Brides book, Perfect Pitch which was and still is free , I have been hooked and totally addicted Stopping Short is yet another wonderful story It is a beautiful story which gets you exactly where it is meant to, in the heart I always look forward to the next one, as I am now


    15. With Drew s story, we finish the infield All of the books have great score lines for me I liked how this one started off with a teammate s blunder in an attempt to help and built from there I liked the statistical strategies and all of the reporting mumbo jumbo The end especially tugged at my heartstringsC provided in exchange for honest review.


    16. A well written story with well developed characters Mindy Klasky had me hoping Drew would overcome all his history and come out on top This was my first book in the series and even though it is a stand alone, I am adding the other books in the series to my TBR list A very pleasant, quick read for anyone who enjoys a heartfelt romance.


    17. I can t really put my finger on what I didn t like about this book but there was something that just didn t feel quite right It was a sweet story and a written in a true Mindy Klasky spirit, love is always in the air but still something was off.I was given a copy from the author for an honest review.


    18. I received a copy of this book from the LibraryThing Early Reviewers in exchange for an honest review This is the third book in this series that I have read and I have enjoyed them all Well written, great characters, very good read.
