Peek Inside Full Count

If I want to keep playing baseball, I need a tutor. The last thing I expected was Mallory Fine. Quiet, a little intense, my kind of gorgeous—and hates baseball and any guy who plays it. I tell myself this is only a tutoring relationship, but I'm a liar.

I know everyone has bad days, but mine is going to be hard to top.

I blew out my knee and probably trashed my chance of going pro. My girlfriend cheated on me. And my jerk of a professor tells me I’m almost on academic probation.

All in one day.

Awesome. I guess now I get to find a tutor.

Enter Mallory. She’s quiet, kind of intense, and gorgeous. She also happens to hate baseball and any guy who plays it.

Okay, I’ll admit it, I’m curious.

I tell myself that we'll keep things strictly academic. That tutoring is all I’m interested in from Mallory.

I’m a liar.

I want to know more about her. I want her.

I'm not sure which is the biggest challenge - getting back on the field, or unraveling all of Mallory's secrets.

This book knocked my socks off and then some! It had me running the full range of emotions.
This may be a book about two college students but the dialogue and interaction reads very much adult, so don't by shy. Jump right in.

The book takes off fairly quickly with Aaron playing a pick up game of socce ...more

By Maddy's Reading June 18, 2017

This was not you typical jock meets nerd, college romance. There is a serious undertone to the story which caught me unaware.
Aaron is having a bad time, her hurt his knee and his girlfriend dumped him. He risks losing his spot on the baseball team and his history professor is out for his blood. He ...more

By Elaine June 22, 2017

Talk about teenage angst and turmoil - this YA romance is packed with it - even when you’re near the end, it doesn’t feel like things can work out happily! Aaron Betts thought he’d got his future sorted - great girlfriend and a real chance of going pro in the sport he loves - then it all came a-tumb ...more

By Bette June 16, 2017

Loved, loved, loved this one. No insta-love, no everything works out perfectly. Just a great story and a message that sometimes life gets messy, stupid decisions are made, and you just have to own it and move forward. The author tackled a very delicate subject and handled it superbly. This is absolu ...more

Mallory and Aaron story was everything. You have really knew where the story was going to go at first. But then when they both open up I saw something I absolutely enjoyed. ...more

By Jamie Lee June 19, 2019

I really liked Full Count by Lynn Stevens. I love the writing and the story. I would have loved a dual POV so you get to know Mallory better and the ending was cut short, that's how it felt at least. I would have loved a epilogue. ...more

By Heather June 19, 2017

This book completely stands alone and *does not* end on a cliffhanger. There is both cursing and a couple of on-screen sex scenes in this book, so if those would cause you to leave a bad review, you should skip this one. But if you do that, you'll be missing one heck of a book.

Wow. That was my firs ...more

By Valeen June 27, 2017

Wow, just wow. Full Count is so much more than I had been expecting. Usually I find that NA college romances are fun, flirty and naughty with not a whole lot of emotional depth. Full Count is just the opposite.

Aaron is a baseball player with an eye on the draft. But first, he has to get through a se ...more

By I Dont June 19, 2017

I loved the dynamic which is Mallory and Aaron. The relationship had to be worked for, it had to work through a lot of stages before it would be just right. Aaron thinks life is baseball and fun. He thinks his plan is easy and will be followed until he has an injury. This injury is the beginning of ...more

Three and a half stars.

Aaron Betts had it all until a rookie led him to bust his knee, now his future as a professional baseball player is receding fast, his girlfriend has dumped him for one of his teammates and he is on academic probation for history. But hey, he's still a big man on campus, fawne ...more

By Juli June 15, 2017

I've read young/adult romance stories that were mere fantasy--either full of hype or were just lackluster. But FULL COUNT is a home run hit! It's a perfect realistic, romantic fiction! Lynn Stevens has written a book that is proof that the great modern love story is alive and well! (Ya!)

By Debbie June 23, 2017

I'm not sure exactly what I was expecting before breaking open Full Count to read. Maybe the typical new adult sports romance with the opposites attract storyline. That is so not what you get with Lynn Stevens' Full Count.

From the beginning, I was quickly pulled into Aaron's story. With his injury, ...more

By Wendy June 21, 2017

Wow, this story blew me away! This is the 1st time I have read any of this authors work, and my word, it will not be the last! Aaron has a carer threatening injury, his girlfriend is cheating on him, and he is about to go on academic probation, not one of his best days! He contacts Mallory to tutor ...more

By Susan June 20, 2017


When I started reading this I thought it would be your usual boy meets girl story, but it was much more than that. It took me by surprise that it had such a serious undertone running through it, it makes you think about the pressure athletes are under from their families and when injured to heal ...more

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book
This is one of those books that once you start reading you cannot put
down until you finish it, It was completely NOT what I was expecting either
This story is about a college baseball player who has hurt his knee badly and
has to have surger ...more

By Carey April 14, 2020

I really liked Aaron's character. He had his faults, but he owned up to them and made things ok. The romance between Aaron and Mallory was a typical sports romance and was what originally drew me in. However, the story became about so much more than their romance. I'm not sure if Aaron and Mallory s ...more

By Nathalie June 22, 2019

Good college romance

Good love story with a great story line for young athletes tempted by PEDs. Characters are believable. Humor, sadness, disappointment and love are all in this short stand alone romance. ...more

By Heather June 12, 2017

Aaron knows how to treat a lady, “no buts, Mallory. I’m walking you to your car.” With a grin, I added, “Deal with it.” Aaron like to give his girl options, “you know, I can think of a way to help you process this situation.” I pressed my lips against her neck. “The cab of the combine is bigger than ...more

By Morwa July 07, 2017

I picked up this book one night, intending to read just a few pages. An hour later, I was still reading and couldn't get enough.

Aaron and Mallory's story is a slow burn that keeps things smoldering at just the right pace. It starts with flirty text messages about baseball and history but takes thing ...more

By Rod Stratman September 16, 2018

Love this book

I read lots of romance books. This is a rare find. I would read this one again and again. I want to know what happens between two characters.

By Bec June 20, 2017

Aaron Betts must pass the one subject he hates - Modern American History. Asking Mallory Fine to tutor him isn't easy, but she agrees. However, the more time they spend together, the more Aaron wants to get to know Mallory on a more personal level, yet she's determined to keep things strictly in the ...more

By Indie June 19, 2017

Finally, a sports book that focuses on sports!

This review is going to be hard to write because something major is going on in this book that I can’t discuss because the synopsis doesn’t mention it. The synopsis leads into a contemporary romance with a focus on sports. However, there is a lot more to ...more

“This wasn’t good. Not at all. Either I was desperate for any chick’s touch, or this woman was more dangerous than I imagined.”

Aaron Betts is recovering from a broken heart and a serious injury. He’s also failing Modern American History. He approaches Mallory Fine to tutor him. When he meets her in ...more

Review also on my blog: https://nextbookaroundthecorner.wordp...

There are times you request an arc and you think you know what the story will be like. Well... not this one. Of course, you meet Aaron, the star-to-be baseball player, when he had a really, really bad day. Losing his girlfriend, hurting ...more

About the author

Lynn Stevens

Lynn Stevens flunked out of college writing her first novel. Yes, she still has it and no, you can't read it. Surprisingly, she graduated with honors at her third school. Third time really is the charm. A former farm girl turned city slicker turned suburbanite, Lynn lives in the Midwest where she drinks coffee she can't pronounce and sips tea when she's out of coffee. When she's out of both, just stay away.
