Review by Jen Skewes

I just adored this book so much.  I finished it hours ago and I am still thinking about it.  This is one of those books that you never want to put down and once it is all over you want to dive right back in again.  I loved everything about this book, from the main characters, to the fun and flirty banter to the sweet and swoony moments that just melted your heart.  But what I loved the most is the fantastic story of a sexy baseball player and the nerdy girl that he fell in love with.   This is by far my favorite Kate Stewart book.  

Rafe is a minor league baseball player whose dream is to play in the big leagues.  This is his last chance to make that dream happen.  Baseball has always been his life, his love, his everything.  He is determined to work hard with no distractions whatsoever so that he finally gets the call that he has been waiting for.  But one night when he looks up from the mound, into the stands, he sees her and everything changes.  

Alice has just picked up and moved herself from Ohio to Charleston in hopes of getting away from her overbearing and over protective mother.  She wants to be on her own and live life.  She wants to explore life and everything that is out there.  Growing up with a mother who was very strict, she didn’t get to experience what most people her age have.  A new city, a new job and a new life is what Alice wants.  She wants to try new things and that means going to a baseball game.  She has never been to game in her life, or watched one for that matter.  She knows nothing about the sport but when she sees a flyer for the ball park she decides to go and enjoy it.  One look at the sexy pitcher on the mound and she cannot look away.  

Alice and Rafe meet again that night after the game and there is certainly chemistry between the two of them.  Rafe wants her in his bed.  But Alice has no intention of giving into him and his sexy self.  They seem to bump into each other often and at times Rafe is in there exactly when she needs him to be.  They soon become friends even though Rafe still wants more.  Alice knows the type of guy he is. He only wants one thing and when he gets it,  it will all be over.  She doesn’t want to cross that line with him because she doesn’t want to lose the moments that they have together as friends.  But as time goes on and the two of them start falling for each other will Alice finally give in?

I don’t even know where to start because I loved everything about this book.  Rafe was such an amazing hero.  At first I was a little unsure given his reputation but he proved over and over again what and amazing man he really was.  You could see how much he was falling for Alice.  She was everything that he had ever wanted but just never knew.  Baseball was his life and his true love but Alice quickly became just as important and special to him.  There was a moment that was just the most beautiful moment for me.  I won’t give it away but it occurred at the end of game and it just proved how much this man truly loved Alice.  He gave her a moment that she only dreamed of having.  My heart at that moment was a puddle of goo. I had happy tears in my eyes and fell in love with Rafe even more.

Now Alice I have to say is one of my favorite heroines.  I completely had a girl crush on her.  She was just so cute and fun and had often found herself in very embarrassing situations.  She had an addiction to Google and a tendency to just blurt out random facts about nothing.  But that is what I loved about her and Rafe.  He accepted everything about her, even her quirks.  And I think he loved that about her, it was those little quirks that made him love her even more.  

Anything But Minor is fun, sweet, sexy and just fantastic.  I laughed out loud, and fell in love with these characters.  There were certainly moments that had my heart beating in my chest because while these two were made for each other and belonged together, they did have their struggles.  But no matter what happened their love had no end.   

My favorite part of this book: the texts between them.  They could talk about nothing and everything and you could feel their connection.   They were just so perfect and cute together.  Every girl deserves to find her Jake Ryan and for Alice hers was Rafe Hembey. 

GAH!!  I could go on forever with how much I loved this book but I will stop gushing.  Instead I will end my review by saying - Read this Book!!!  Trust me you will thank me later.
