Baseball has never been sexier in an all-new novel by New York Times Bestselling Author, K. Bromberg. Easton Wylder is baseball royalty. The game is his life. His passion. His everything. So, when an injury threatens to end Easton’s season early, the team calls in renowned physical therapist, Doc Dalton, to oversee his recovery. Except it’s not Doc who greets Easton for his first session, but rather, his daughter, Scout. She may be feisty, athletic, defiant, and gorgeous, but Easton is left questioning whether she has what it takes to help him. Scout Dalton’s out to prove a female can handle the pressure of running the physical therapy regimen of an MLB club. And that proof comes in the form of getting phenom Easton Wylder back on the field. But getting him healthy means being hands-on. And with a man as irresistible as Easton, being hands-on can only lead to one thing, trouble. Because the more she touches him, the more she wants him, and she can’t want him. Not when it’s her job to maintain the club’s best interest, in regards to whether he’s ready to play. But when sparks fly and fine lines are crossed, can they withstand the heat, or is one of them bound to get burned?
When reviewing this book I really took some time to reflect. Being a blogger I read anything from 1 to 5 books a week and what stood out for me with this book was the quality of the writing, K. Bromberg just has this knack of putting those words down on paper that just resonate with the reader, they set the scene and really delve into the imagination and boy is this story in my mind.
I really struggled with gelling with a girl named Scout but I did gel with her character, she was strong yet had her vulnerabilities and she had sass and style. I really did connect with her on every level.
Easton is just that fun character that you love in this kind of book, he has his moments but is determined to recover from his injury and get back to work and his journey in this book was poignant.
Just as things start to get interesting Kristy drops the proverbial small ish cliffy on you.
All in all this was a complex, fast paced read with a great plot and characters.
