3 - "Welcome to Joisey." Stars!

Having read more than a few sports based romances in the last month or so, it’s fair to say that they have definitely been a mixed bag in the enjoyment stakes for me. I think at any other time, and with less reading numbers of books containing a similar theme, The Heat of the Moment may have deemed a higher rating from me, no guarantee’s, but it is possible .

"To strength and patience."

Three stars for me means I enjoyed it, but there isn’t really anything about it

A sweet and sexy lighthearted romance.

For Jessica, being one of the guys comes naturally since she grew up with four older brothers. As physical therapist for a professional baseball team, understanding sports and its psychology is equally easy with all her brothers growing up to be professional athletes. As a woman, she’s gone down the road of dating a pro-ball player and found it’s a heartbreakingly disappointing road and sworn never to go out with professionals. So why is she compelled to

The Heat of the Moment is a sweet, sexy and endearing baseball romance.

Jessica Hart is a physical therapist for the Jersey Sonics. She has a strict rule, never get involved with her clients which was great until she meets Gavin King.

Gavin was at the top of his game until a knee injury might destroy his chances of ever returning at top performance again. Now he just has to keep his head down, take it easy and leave the fiery red headed Jessica be. That is much easier said than done because the

Yahoo Sports Romances! I was very excited for this book. The Heat of the Moment is the third book in The Boys of Summer series by Katie Rose. Growing up, I was a wee bit boy crazy over baseball players. I mean, between them and surfers, my girly hearthrob world was complete. Anyway, that put this book right up my alley, and before I even started it, I read the previous two books in the series. (You can find the reviews on my blog as well!) The Heat of the Moment does have an HEA, it can be read ...more

After a potentially career ending knee injury, Gavin King is traded from his plush set-up in California to the ragtag New Jersey Sonics. Leaving behind his swimsuit model girlfriend, and all the luxuries California affords, this is not a move that makes Gavin happy. When his beautiful swimsuit model girlfriend cheats on him, and then dumps him—things go from bad to worse. However, it doesn’t take long before his loveable prankster teammates bring him into their fold and then, of course, there’s ...more

I feel always a little awkward when I have to review a book that had good promises and didn't turned out well for me.

Heat of the moment had a nice start. Baseball player, Gavin has been transferred in a new team mostly because his previous team didn't believed in him after his injury.

The change is brutal and though for him and of course he needs time to adjust.
On top of everything, he needs to heal this injury and he's not really patient about it.

Jessica is the physical therapist of his new

This was my first encounter with this author's work, and I must say it left a VERY good first impression! Being that it is the third installment in the series, and not having read the previous titles, I was a little concerned I'd have a hard time following along, but that wasn't the case for me at all. I think this book could easily be read as a stand alone title, but my guess is that once you finish it you will be reaching for the other books in the series, I know I plan to!

I truly enjoyed

22/3 - For me this was just okay. I didn't feel a huge amount of connection between Jessica and Gavin and I was expecting it to be a lot more humourous than it was. This seemed like the kind of book that would be full of hilarious snark and when it wasn't I felt let down. That disappointment was my own fault as it was my own preconceptions that made me think it was going to be funny, the lack of funny wasn't the book's fault (it's not like humour was promised in the blurb), but still I can't ...more

Gavin is as sweet as Jack was, and so perfect for Jessica. Great romance with baseball and sex thrown in. Plus a great look at PT. We get to see all the old Sonic crew plus more practical jokes. Now who's going to be next?

The Boys of Summer are back! Yeah, I love this series. Katie Rose brings us a new player, Gavin King traded from the Dodgers to the Sonics because an injury. The injury if not treated properly can end his career; good thing the Sonics have Jessica Hart one of the best Physical Therapist in the biz. I love these two they had such a great romance. As always Katie Rose writes wonderfully it pulls me in and I don't want to leave even after I finish the book.

Gavin King just got traded,

An Awesome addition to the Boys of Summer series. This is easily read stand alone if you haven't picked up the others (you really should though!). I loved these characters right from the start and what a perfect character Gavin turned out to be.

After suffering an injury that no one is sure he can recover from, Gavin finds himself being traded from one of the top teams to what is considered one of the jokes of the league, the New Jersey Sonics.
Accepting the trade like the professional he is,

2.5-3 stars.

This is a light afternoon read. Gavin was charming, very sweet yet still had moments of being a hot, bossy alpha. For the most part Jessica was likable, unfortunately there were times where she acted like an immature girl instead of a grown woman, which was frustrating. I found myself annoyed with her silly behavior. The pace of the story was slow and little to nothing unfolded until the end of the book. I found myself skimming just to finish.

This is the 3rd book in The Boys of Summer series, and could be read as a stand alone, but why would you want to miss out on any of these boys.

Baseballer Gavin King's life is turned upside down when he is injured, traded and dumped. Shipped across country, things couldn't get worse for him.

Life at the Sonics is a lot different from life at the Dodgers - but that's not a bad thing. His new team mates are a pack of rascals

I've read my fair share of sports romances, but there have only been a few I've enjoyed from start to finish. The Heat of the Moment has been one of them. From that first meeting between Gavin and Jessica, I knew that their story was going to be one I would enjoy.

Gavin King has been traded to the New Jersey Sonics after a near career-ending injury. His main focus is to work on his recovery so he could get back to the game he loves. Adjusting to a new team and a new city has not been easy, but

This is the next book in Rose's Boys of Summer Series and we continue to follow the Sonics. They have a new guy from the Dodgers, Gavin. He is not so thrilled with being sent to NJ Sonics, it was bad enough dealing with his recent knee injury. Luckily, Jessica is a great PT/trainer and she will be getting Gavin back on the field in no time. What Jessica didn't expect was to get Gavin in her bed. Despite being attracted to his amazing body and good looks,

I really liked this one! This is the second book I've read from Katie Rose's Boys of Summer series and I have to say I'm loving this whole series so far! THE HEAT OF THE MOMENT features Gavin King, who I just have to say stole my heart. He is injured while playing for a major team (Go Dodgers! My favorite team!) and no one is sure if he'll play again, which would be hard enough to face for any player, but then he's traded down to an East Coast team. Gavin has his moments, but all-in-all he's a ...more

Another great book in The Boys of Summer series – no cliffhanger

This is the third book in The Boys of Summer series but you don’t have to have read the other books to enjoy this one; they all standalone.

Gavin King was a hitting star with the Dodgers but he injured his knee and they traded him to the much less desirable New Jersey Sonics.

Jessica Hart is a sports therapist for the Sonics and Gavin is assigned to work with her to restore his knee so he can begin playing again. Jessica doesn’t like

I enjoyed reading about Jessica and Gavin. When I started this book I couldn't remember the other characters from the previous books due to I read them a while ago, but I did remember this team is known for their pranks.


Gavin got hurt playing and was traded to NJ to a new team and meets Jessica his new physical therapist. Right away they are attracted to one another but Gavin still has a girlfriend is CA even though he gets the feeling something is going on with her.


Jessica gave up on baseball

Gavin has been traded to the Sonics because his old team are not sure if he will make it back off the DL list. His life is falling apart he is injured, been traded and his high profile girlfriend has left him .....

What a great story! I have always liked sports stories, but I love the way Katie Rose wrote this one. I adore Gavin, and the fact that he seems totally honest and a gentleman. Not what I'm used to from most sports participants, real or fictional. As far as Jessica, I love that she is strong and giving, yet still a little too unsure of herself and her strengths. It was great also, to read about some of the Sonics from the previous book. Always great when the books come together like that, to ...more

This is a sweet, sexy read, that warms your heart. Hot sexy Gavin King, dropped from his California baseball team after a knee injury, is sent to the New Jersey Sonics. He has a lot of rehabbing to do, and his physical therapist, Jessica, is beautiful, tough and still reeling from a break up with a former player, in more ways than one. Gavin is not only recovering from his knee injury, but being dropped by his swimsuit model girlfriend in California. Let the attraction begin! Full review to ...more

The Heat of the Moment is the first book by Katie Rose that I have read. I enjoyed this book, but I wasn't really WOW'd by the book. This was a sweet and sexy read. Not a lot of drama but quite a bit of push and pull.

I think those two reasons are the reasons why this book didn't wow me. I thought the drama (in the form of an ex) came into the story a little too late, which kind made the ending feel
