Amelia is a Wall Street economist and Oliver is a fifteen-year MLB veteran. When the two are suddenly thrust into each other’s lives via an accident involving a mutual acquaintance, they strike up a spicy instalove romance that quickly becomes complicated when Amelia has to decide where her loyalties lie; the sexy first baseman and known player or the lifelong friend gunning for Oliver’s job. But when the opportunity of a lifetime presents itself to Amelia, the choice might be taken out of her hands entirely.
While the characters of Amelia and Oliver are likeable enough, there really isn’t enough character or story development to make much of an impression. Coupled with the author’s lack of research/understanding of both baseball mechanics and analogies, it makes for a tough read for sports romance readers that are actual baseball fans. The story is sweet yet predictable, however fans of the series or those looking for light, easy reads will likely enjoy this one.
Chris Hayden been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
