Binding Arbitration - Elizabeth Marx

 Binding Arbitration - Elizabeth Marx

About the book:
Through the corridors of the Windy City’s criminal courts, single mother, Libby Tucker, doesn’t wonder how far she’s willing to go to save her son’s life from cancer. The undefeated defense attorney knows she’ll take her case all the way to the majors. 

Libby pleads her case at the cleats of celebrity baseball player, Banford Aidan Palowski, the man who discarded her at college graduation, begging him to live up to his biological duty. Libby’s worked her backside bare for everything she’s attained, while Band-Aid has been indulged since he slid through the birth canal and landed in a pile of Gold Coast money. But helping her might jeopardize the only thing the jock worships: his baseball career. 

If baseball imitates life, Aidan admits his appears to be silver-plated peanuts, until, an unexpected confrontation with the most spectacular prize that’s ever poured from a caramel corn box blindsides him. Libby reveals his son desperately needs him and it pricks open the wound he’s carried since he abandoned her. 

All Libby wants is a little anonymous DNA, but Band-Aid has a magical umpire in his head who knows Libby’s a fateball right to the heart. When a six-year-old sage, and a hippy priestess step onto the field there’s more to settle between Libby and Aidan then heartache, redemption, and forgiveness.


My Review:
On reading the blurb for this book i knew it was one i wanted to check out, and i must admit it didn't disappoint with well written strong main characters in Libby and Aiden bringing a whole new meaning to love and relationships. Making the reader follow through with this heart warming and tear jerking story, that the author has no fear bringing away from the norm in this genre. The character background and story-line are well written and enthralling, taking along the reader with all the emotions felt by the characters, leaving you laughing,crying and at times shouting out loud at the book. I would recommend this book to people who love the genre or who want a heart warming story of discovery and love mixed in with emotional and real life connotations. I applaud Elizabeth for what she has managed to do she has wrote a book that will be remembered in my heart for many years to come.
