I didn't love nor hate it. It was an average easy read with a Maverick as the standard sports bad boy hero pitcher. One who definitely needed some help in getting his act together in the press and on the mound. E ...more
It’s baseball season and what a way to start off Spring Training. A bad boy, hot baseball player and the woman that could either bench him or have him pitch a perfect game. Yep, here we go with the baseball euphemisms.
Maverick was one hot mess. Since his brother’s death, the loss of the big game and moving the team to some podunk town, whiskey has been his friend, lover and coach. Add that to lying to the ne ...more

I think I was thrown by finding this title in the Bloomsbury Spark imprint but the story did NOT read NA at all.

And with moments like 'nipples brushing shoulders', I couldn't go further in their "dance"... sorry :(
Sharing what motivates her is a life passion (a close second to writing romance of cours ...more
