    1. Called out was an interesting read. I was intrigued by the summary and the book did and okay job at delivering.It's a fluffy story that I think is great for the summer. I liked the characters, I found the chemistry between Lola and Jace really well-executed. The writing was also decent.What I didn't like, what still bothers me are the questions the book left me with, questions about some serious plot-points. Why are they left unaddressed is beyond me. It took away so much from my overall impress [...]


    2. “It could be, it might be It is, A home run!” Harry CarayIt might be cliché, but I felt like I needed that quote to describe Called Out by Jen Doyle and being that her fictional baseball team calls Chicago home, I also felt it was appropriate. I have loved this series from the start, but Called Out is simply phenomenal. Given that the “hero” would probably call himself an anti-hero, and the heroine is a widow who is a single mom to four young boys, I was skeptical when I started this bo [...]


    3. I loved it! Jack is still tugging on my heartstrings. This was more emotional than the other books in this series and I had tears in my eyes more than once. Start at the beginning and read all three!


    4. ***ARC Provided by the Author and Tasty Book Tours***Jack and Lola had chemistry and the best part was that you genuinely believe they like one another, well, eventually. Not so much at first. Their meet cute, over a flat tire on the side of the road, was funny, and charming, and gave an interesting first glimpse into who they each are, and how they will relate to one another.Lack has a past that he needs to overcome, and he needs to do it soon, as his options for playing baseball are dwindling [...]


    5. Find this review and more at kimberlyfaye reads.I've gotta be honest — I wasn't expecting to like this book as much as I did. Since I totally fell in love with Nate in Calling It, I figured I would have a hard time with Jack as the hero in this book. Granted, him sleeping with Nate's fianceé is what allowed him to meet Dorie, who I absolutely loved, but still. I didn't like the guy on principle alone. I shouldn't have doubted Jen. She delivered redemption and a totally swoony hero where I lea [...]


    6. Originally posted atSmexybooksThis is the third in this series and much like the previous two, I really enjoyed it. It could be read as a stand alone, but it works better if you’ve read the previous ones and fully understand the damage that Jack has done. Lola is a single mother of three small kids. Her husband died a few years back. She has an incredibly strong support network and isn’t on the hunt for a new husband/dad. I love a good single parent trope, especially when the other MC isn’ [...]


    7. 5 out of the ballpark stars for CALLED OUT. Jack "Ox" Oxford is the worst kind of man. The kind who slept with his best friend's fiancée and got her pregnant. Jack knows he doesn't deserve another chance from Nate Hawkins, but he's headed to Inspiration, Iowa anyway to grovel and beg for a position on Nate's baseball team. He isn't expecting a widowed mother of 4 to set his upside down world to rights, especially since every one of her friends and family warned him to stay away from her. Lola M [...]


    8. Ive been following this series since the first book- Calling It and I've loved each and every thing with the wonderful characters and the beautiful town of Inspiration!I love how the author writes these stories by mixing in humor,romance,friendships and familial relationships beautifully!I think Called Out has been my favorite one!We have Lola- widow and now single mother of four boys.She's got a handful and so much more to take care of.So the idea of a relationship especially one that could imp [...]


    9. This is probably the ultimate fantasy read for every single mum everywhere. I was drooling from the moment the handsome sports star pulled up in his Maserati and offered to change Lola’s flat tire. And the only thing hotter than the laundry room sex was the moment when the handsome sports star cared for four little vomiting boys so their mum could finally sleep. Of all the women in these books, Lola is probably my favourite. Lola is wickedly funny, frantically busy and insanely competent. Her [...]


    10. Through the rain, anger, bitterness and heartache Lola and Jack found each other. Called Out is a close up look at redemption. A second chance story that revolves around a washed up baseball player seeking to mend fences as he strives for a chance to relive his glory days. Jack is a work in progress that lands at the feet of his happy ending when he meets Lola. Lola is a single mother with a fearless spirit and her own painful mistakes to bear. The greatest obstacle each faces is forgiving thems [...]


    11. ~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~This is the third book in the series, and I have to say I think it is the best one yet. I would recommend that you read the in order, as the background to the characters makes this a stronger story. Jack is a man who did something very wrong, and has paid very heavily for it - but he is going to have make things right for his career to have any chance of being resuscitated. But as we learn, the whole story is far more co [...]


    12. [I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review] There's no other way to actually say this; it was nothing close to what I expected.This is one of the very few adult books I've read, and I honestly didn't expect to like love it so much. I rooted for the characters; every single one of them. And although I haven't read the previous books in this series, I couldn't help but love Nate, Deke, Fitz, Jules, and Dorie. Nate's unconditional love for Jack literally brought me to my knees. Their [...]


    13. Jack has hurt his best friend, so badly that nobody wants to be around him any longer and he doesn't have anyone left. He's trying to make things right, but he isn't sure he can ever make up for what he's done. Still, his baseball career depends on the person he screwed over and the question is if he'll be given another chance. He's all alone and it's because of one single moment. Will he ever find happiness again?When Lola meets Jack she doesn't want to feel any attraction because she knows wha [...]


    14. This is a light-hearted romance that I didn’t want to put down – being the lover of baseball that I am made this story even better! Jack Oxford is a major league pitcher who made a terrible mistake and slept with his best friend, Nates, fiancé. Since this day Jack’s life has completely changed. He absolutely hates himself for what he’s done and so does the entire town Nate lives in, plus it’s caused Jacks career to go down the toilet. Jack’s only option now is to beg for Nates forgi [...]


    15. A fun tale of a single mom and a baseball player who is there to make amends, Called Out is a great romance for the sports fan. Lola, a widow with four children, runs into her son's hero while stranded on the side of the road. The hero she knows some not so nice things about. Things he is there to hopefully atone for as to not screw up the rest of his life. Jack is in his own class of antihero. He has issues he is working through, and I loved that he was so flawed. Called Out is a sweet, fun, ro [...]


    16. Book 1 was eh for me, book 2 I still can't get into, but book 3 is the lucky number! Jack and Lola hit it off instantly, I love their chemistry and the way they banter, and I love how great Jack is with Lola's kids. I love that there isn't unnecessary drama, and the epilogue is so sweet I cried (no surprises).


    17. Jack is a bad boy, a former big league pitcher who screwed himself and his career when he slept with the fiancé of his teammate and best friend. Now he’s a social outcast desperately trying to get back in the good graces of his friend who will decide if he can rejoin the team. Lola is a widowed mother of four who’s hormones jump to life every time Jack’s in the room. She should hate him like everyone else, but when he crawls back to beg forgiveness from her friend Nate, she sees the good [...]




    18. Called OutThis is definitely my favorite of the series which is saying a lot since I went into this book Hating Jack Oxford. If you have read the other books, you know of Jack's notorious past and why all of baseball has turned against him. Except Jack isn't the Iceman that he was made out to be and it takes a widow and four little boys to prove it to him. I can't wait to read more from this author!!


    19. Okay, I am in love! Great lead characters, wonderful secondary characters, melting hearts, believable conflict, and a happy ending. What more could you want? This book is well written and adorable. If it had been an option, I would’ve read this in one sitting! Jen Doyle is a new author for me, but that is about to change in a big way. While this book was great as a standalone, I will definitely be going back to read the other books in the series. After meeting the characters that star in them, [...]


    20. Jack "Ox" Oxford is looking to sign on with a new baseball team, but the only team willing to take him is the team his ex-best friend, Nate, plays for. So, to have a chance at saving his career, he needs to beg Nate for forgiveness or at least convince him to agree to allow the two of them to play on the same team. However, it seems Nate isn't the only one he needs to win over when he changes a flat tire for Lola Deacon McIntire. Can he convince Lola that he's a good guy, despite what he did to [...]


    21. Called Out, Jen DoyleReview from Jeannie Zelos book reviewsGenre:  Romance, Carina: what I love about Carina books is they have a happy ending, eiother a HEA or a HFN, and thats what I want in a romance, an escape from realisty into happy times, a way to leave todays probelms behind and disappear into a world where things go wrong but end well.  I've got to start this review with a gripe though :-( One thing that really bothered me about this story. We're told Jack screwed over his best frie [...]


    22. When Jen Doyle tells a story, it is filled with charming characters you want to get to know personally, it has humor that makes the drama and troubles of the protagonists lives bearable, it has adoration and admiration, sexy scenes that nearly melt the pages, it has friends and family, it has life, loving, and living, even death. There are few authors whose voice as they tell a story mesmerizes my mind, every single time, and I get lost in the pages, in the story, in the lives of characters of t [...]


    23. the author let me read this book for an honest review.5 starsThis book had everything I absolutely love. It had great righting, foremost. I loved every character in this book. You get so wrapped up with the characters in this book that you can't help but not stop reading. Sports romance. Baseball, what a great sport read about as the season is heating up right now. A beautiful woman that lost her husband and thinks she will never find love again, plus having 4 boys in tow is a big thing also. A [...]


    24. Rating: 3.5 StarsJack is attempting to resurrect his career following the scandal with Nate's fiancee. He might have a shot at a position with the Watchmen IF he can win Nate's forgiveness. Upon his arrival in Inspiration, he bumps heads with Lola, a hard as nails single mom and also close friend of Nate's. When circumstances push them together, they try to fight a growing attraction and maybe even perhaps falling in love. It was good to be back in Inspiration! This gang is always so much fun to [...]


    25. My Review: Every time I go into one of these books, I kind of expect this to be the time that Jen Doyle lets me downt because I want her to, but just because this entire series has been so good and that isn't an easy level to maintain. BUT she did it again. I adored this book and fell in love with Jack and LolariouslyLOVED THEM!!!Both these characters have an angst-filled background. Jack was the child of a very well-to-do family. His parents are cold and callous and he was basically raised by t [...]


    26. Every time. Every single time I’m back to Inspiration a new series of delights await me. My love for small town romances knows no bounds, but this particular small town secured its place among my favorite fictional places to be for sure. The rules of series reading is that if you’ve read the previous ones you know what you’re in for, which is a wonderfully emotional, sweet and sexy romance as the case is here, but if you haven’t, then I reserve the right to tell you to do it. Just go bac [...]


    27. Called out delivers a fresh and fun romantic tale for single mom Lola and baseball outcast Jack. I've loved the bits of Lola seen in previous books in the series, watched her struggle with her kids and deal with the difficulties of her situation. I've watched her be a good friend and part of a huge family made from a group of friends, so I was really excited to see her get her story. That her story also included Jack, who I admit I was super curious about, just made it all the better. Jack comes [...]


    28. I read the first book, Calling It, and fell in love with Doyle’s writing.  She delivers down to earth, regular people who are engaging and interesting but not too full of drama.  Their problems seem normal and relatable, and you finish the book feeling like you just made friends.  In Called Out she once again givers her readers characters that they can fall for and a story that captivates. If you read Calling It you remember Jack because he was Nate’s best friend until Jack slept with Na [...]
