He’s a player. But she’s about to score.
Opposites really do attract* as a sassy salesgirl turns a pro athlete’s life upside down in this supercharged standalone novel of seduction from the author of Bossed.
My mom would tell you I’m quite the catch, but since my last boyfriend, I haven’t been dating much. Maybe it’s my rocker style or my lack of filter that intimidates the boys. So I’m pleasantly surprised when Matt Stallworth waltzes into the indie record store where I work and gives as good he gets. Turns out Matt is a professional baseball player, which should mean he’s out of my league. But if he wants to hook up with me, he’s going to have to follow my rules.
After winning my MVP award, I learned that a guy can get used to having beautiful women practically throw themselves at you everywhere you turn. But everything changes the first time I see Kelsey Martin, and something just clicks. She’s hot, snarky, and whip-smart. I’ve got to see her again. Only problem is, she sees right through all my best moves. And I’m going to have to step up my game to convince Kelsey that I’m playing for keeps.
*And sexy times ensue—for mature audiences.
The premise of this book intrigued me, however I was not in love with the sexually descriptive language used. There was too much of the “F” word and a certain course word describing the anatomy of a female.
I prefer words that don’t sound just plain vulgar.
The underlying story is excellent and rather sweet. I know it could have been told using a more cleanly based language.
Matt can’t believe he is so taken with Kelsey at first glance but he holds back to give her time to deal with her grief over the loss of a man she thinks of as her second father.
Kelsey, who has never had much luck with guys, always seeming to choose the wrong one, can’t believe her luck in attracting Matt.
Their mutual attraction is incredible, but Matt is secretly dealing with another issue. He is a free agent with an incredible contract offer from the New York Yankees.
Will he chose to stay with his home team or follow the money to New York? When will he tell Kelsey what is going on and when he does will she just let him go or follow her heart?
I gave this book 3.75 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development and a very heated sensual rating of 5.0 of 5.0 flames. The intimacy is hot, but I feel the descriptive language needs to be cleaned up considerably. If the language were less vulgar I would have given this book 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 book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
