A hot steamy read about a baseball player and his agent. All the relationship tension is caused by the everyday reason of not communicating and assumptions. It was nice to see that it didn't take a nefarious plot to bring these two together.

The narrative is told mostly from Elizabeth (female MC) point of view. Gavin's point of view is also shown, but not as in depth. We spend a lot of time in Elizabeth's head repeating her mantra of relationship equals lack of self. The two start to connect but time and again lack of communication breaks them apart. The final separation is resolved not by the two talking, but by outside interference (they would call it intervention.... tomato tomahtoe) and then they suddenly have their HEA.

I would have liked the story more if they had shown some real growth working to make the relationship work. Elizabeth starts to open up but up until the end, still won't engage in dialog. Gavin makes some stupid mistakes, but he also tries to keep the communication lines open. Both contribute to their own unhappiness and I would have liked to see them solve their problems rather than have others fix (give advice like girl, don't you know he loves you...forgive him) their relationship.

Overall though, a solid romance and filled with some steamy love scenes. This is a great quick summer read.
