Micki Jordan is a tomboy as much at home on the playing field as in a locker room full of naked guys.
But the star publicist is looking to prove she’s also an irresistible woman in order to get a second shot at professional baseball player and major league playboy, Damian Fuller.
Micki transforms herself into one hot number Damian can’t help but notice and together they burn up the sheets and find themselves falling hard. Until Damian’s past returns, threatening their future.
This book was definitely on my TBR list and has been since that memorable day that I stood in Wal Mart trying unsuccessfully to have any kind of conversation with Grace, whom was visiting from her far away homeland of Australia. I have Carly Phillips to blame for stealing precious time away from Grace’s first trip to the states to visit myself and our friends. She was so engrossed in this book and after finishing the book myself last night, I completely understand why she was so wrapped up in it.
Now, I should add that the reason I’m just barely getting around to reading this series is because I have been very wary of trying anything new by Carly Phillips (and by new, I mean new to me) because I haven’t been “wowed” by Carly Phillips yet. I mean, I’ve only read one of her other books and that was the first book in The Chandler Brother’s series, Roman’s story. I think it was called The Bachelor and though I liked it well enough, it didn’t have enough of a pull for me to think “Wow that was a great book” but I thought it would get better as the series progressed but then I never finished Rick’s book. It was the first book that I never finished and to this day, almost 3 years later, I STILL haven’t finished that book. So I never got around to reading Chase’s book which I hear is the best book and a favorite among CP fans.
But I can finally say that Carly Phillips has wowed me.
The storyline behind this book isn’t a new storyline, it wasn’t fresh, it wasn’t something that I haven’t read before but none of that mattered to me while reading this book. Carly Phillips did a wonderful job writing this book.
I absolutely LOVE this kind of storyline and Carly Phillips delivered a great rendition to the ol’ Aging Athlete denying the end of his career and tomboy unsure of her worth as a woman. Damien Fuller was a memorable hero and Micki was a fantastic heroine! The storyline didn’t drag at all and it was just fun, light and very fulfilling. A truly great read!
Ya’ll should definitely pick this book and give it a whirl, I’m so glad I did!
