Book Review: Catch and Cradle

I feel like we don’t have enough New Adult sapphic stories around what is a shame because I love New Adult stories so it’s no surprise that I jumped at the chance to read Catch and Cradle, a fun New Adult F/F romance set in Halifax that takes us behind the scenes of their UNS Women’s Lacrosse team to watch Becca, the teams captain, and Hope, one of their star players, come together.

I loved all the layers we saw of Hope and Becca. The book did a great job showing us their hopes, dreams, motivations and fears. That made it easy to root for them and their relationship. We can see how they are perfect for each other, but there’s also room for them to grow as individuals.

The story is sweet but also sexy and as a sports lover it was great to get a glimpse into a sport I’ve never paid much attention to like lacrosse.
