Every woman loves a attractive and talented guy, add in a mix of him being off limits and voila, it's an explosive situation bound to be one heck of a fun ride.
Heather Gadway may have been a world-class college pitcher and a top uni coach, but she's ranked as amateur when it comes to managing the Falcons, her father's struggling minor league team.
And when it comes to managing her over the top and very aggravating attraction to Garret Wold, their brand new star pitcher, shouting " time to play ball " is like setting loose the team on a football field!
Aside from her ever growing attraction she knows it 's going to be hard to prove herself as the first ever female manager in the league and prove to her overly critical father that she's worthy.
So no matter what the cost she cannot afford any distractions no matter how tempting or delicious they may be. But soon Heather's world starts to fall apart and Garrett is the only one there to catch her.
If you have read my previous review for books by this author, you will now it's no surprise that am not only addicted to them, but that she is in a league of her own, I am yet to find a HQH author that does it quite the way Karen Rock does.
Deep soul searing emotion , chemistry so hot the pages go up in flames and best of all characters that are so real it's scary!
In this read the heroine, Heather is a strong and independent woman, the best kind of all I always say, she stands her ground as best she can but as we all know when the going get's tough the tough does have a tenancy to want to get going. Understandable, because life does seem to be just a little too hard sometimes and wanting to crumble and surrender when we fall is usually where our mind starts to wonder by the time we hit the ground for the what feels like the hundredth time. Through this author the author showed that everyone needs someone to catch them, even when you think you can beat them all, it simply is not the case. So expect that little helping hand when it comes along.
The character of the perfect troubled past hero, and I adored him to bits! Through this character the author perfectly brought home the message of trust. If someone trusts you enough to risk it all, it's not only common decency to trust them too, but it's also the best way of showing you care. If you have someone's trust but cannot surrender your's to them there really is simply no point in the believe status of the relationship, as they say what's good for the goose is good for the gander.
I highly recommend this read for all fans of that very magical, super romantic, rivals turn lovers reads. It was perfect in each and every single way, sexy, sensual and packed with one heck of a curve-ball emotional punch !
