This was my first experience with this author, and I had not read either of the first two books of this series, so I wasn’t sure what to expect … I LOVED IT! I have to say that I have not gotten as attached to a set of characters as quickly as I did these in quite some time. I was rooting for them from the first moment they met. Very enjoyable read and sexy to boot!
It begins with Gavin King, professional baseball first baseman, learning his high end California team is trading him to the mediocre New Jersey Sonics. He’s stunned and not happy with the change. He gets to Jersey and meets the team that is not anywhere near as serious about the game as he’s used to, and begins rehabbing his knee to try to get back into the game.
When he sets eyes on the team’s Sports Therapist he’ll be working out with, Jessica Hart, he’s instantly attracted to her, but he has a girlfriend back in California, and Jessica has sworn off of professional athletes after having her heart broken by a guy the year prior. They become friends and she helps him alot in understanding what he can and can’t do with his knee while his healing is happening. He’s soon dumped by his super model girlfriend now that he’s not a mega-star, and Jessica starts to realize he might be different after all from the jerk she is getting over.
Will she decide to take a chance on him? Will his knee heal enough for him to ever get to play pro ball again? Can he learn to fit in with this team that’s so different from what he’s used to? Read the book to find out all of the juicy details. You won’t be disappointed!
