Win the game. Lose your heart.
Everyone knows who I am and that I could have any female fan I want. That’s supposed to be the “perk” of playing left field for the Boston Renegades. But I don’t want just any woman; I want her.
She should be just another face in the crowd, but I can’t stop thinking about the one night we spent together-and her look of regret the morning after.
Because Saylor Blackwell is the kind of woman who haunts a man. Smart, sexy as hell, and one of the best managers in the business. She’s every ballplayer’s dream woman. And I’d do anything to make things right with her.
I’m done sitting on the bench when it comes to Saylor Blackwell. Time to swing for the fences.
My previous review of the e-book
This book is written totally in first person dialog. It switches the viewpoint from chapter to chapter. Having never read a book totally devoted to the thoughts of the characters alternating from one to the other, I at times got lost as to which character was telling the story.
Travis is a star player in the major leagues for the local baseball team and can pretty much have any woman he wants. His obvious attraction to the female population in general has landed him in very hot water.
Saylor is his publicity agent and a single mother with a problem. She is more than just attracted to Travis. She has a contract which forbids her to fraternize with clients.
That is only one issue that she faces, another being her ex lover and the father of her daughter who suddenly after five years shows more than a passing interest in their child.
Will the problems that these two face culminate into a lasting relationship between them?
I gave this book 4.25 of 5 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 4.5 of 5 flames. I had problems keeping up with which character was telling the story or I would have given it a higher rating.
I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I have voluntarily reviewed.
