Baseball. A rookie pitcher. A job working Spring Training.
Yep. Sign me up.
I want this job. I want the rookie pitcher--although at this stage in my life, I should be looking for the veteran pitcher, or hell, the pitching coach (I'm looking at you Verlander, Kluber, and Calloway). Anyway, yes, I know actual pitchers and pitching coaches. Baseball and books. Two of my favorite things.
So, yes, this job. The pitcher. This sexy little novella. All the things i love in one spot.

This is a quick read from a baseball themed series. I have read two others in the series. I'm normally not into sports themed books but I have truly enjoyed this series. The players tend to make cameos in each others books which enhances my investment in the series.
This story involves Jessica, a spring training intern, and Jay. who has come to the US as a rookie to start spring training. There is a spark but will it ignite love or just passion?

I really enjoyed this read, which surprised me. I didn't read the blurb when I downloaded it on a free novella spree on Amazon, so I didn't really know anything besides it was about a sports guy.
Anyway, I found this an engaging read that was hard to put down. It's definitely one of the better free novellas I've read so I'd definitely recommend it if you're looking for a short, easy read. I liked the characters and the relationship--even if it ...more
This was a quick spicy listen with interesting characters! Jessica had a hilarious inner goddess that primps and preens, and I could just picture her sitting on Jessica's shoulder like a little bad angel. It made for some funny moments. Jay and Jessica had ...more

I like many aspects to this book. It had heat, was quirky and was something new. This was my first story where the lead characters were Korean. This was a cute sports romance- Romantic Comedy. The narration was awesome. The story was great! My only down side was that the conversations of the Korean characters could read choppy at times which was a little distracting but not enough to make me not like the book. It definitely matched the character, it was just a little different ...more
Jessica Song is an intern at Spring Training and Jay Pak Ahn is a baseball rookie looking to find his place on a Major League Team. As soon as the two meet their are sparks flying between them and their is intensity right from the start.
The two begin a hot and fast paced relationship but unfortunately there are some ghosts hiding in each of their pasts. When the ghosts come out will the two find a way to have a future together or is there too much hurt involved?
A lighthearted, spoofy romance brings attention to the existence of cultural differences that still exist. This author shows how arranged marriages can be harmful if not taken seriously by both individuals. The main characters fall in love but run into challenges due to lack of truthfulness. An intriguing look into the Korean culture of marriage and society that had me visualizing the antics of the characters. Loved the story!!
It'a a cute and funny short sports romance story. The inner voice of the main character, Jessica, is so hilarious! The narrators are very good, as always. I like Tor Thom and Charley Ongel. Also, I like the duet narration.
** Read and listen the audiobook with Whispersync. **
The interactions between the two narrators, Tor Thom and Charley Ongel, was spot on!
Playing the Rookie is a cute insta-love short story that is perfect for a spring afternoon. It will definitely help get you in the mood for Spring Training! It is packed with steam, drama, and love all in only 100 pages!
The narration was amazing! I really enjoyed listening to Tor and Charley and will be on the look out for more by them!
