Baseball Lover

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Rose

Sometimes life rears its ugly head and messes up your world.

I know too well. It happened to me five years ago when I lost my fiancé.

It took me awhile to get back on my feet, but I finally got my life in order.

Don’t commit. Don’t get attached. Guard your heart.

Seemed plausible…until a tall, dark and gorgeous man commands my attention.

He is the worst kind of temptation.

Funny, charming, and did I mention hot?

Every woman’s fantasy.

A professional baseball player.

Suit up heart because I have no desire to become one of his stats.

 

John

Sometimes life drops a little miracle right in front of you.

In the form of a beautiful goddess.

Who’s also intelligent.

Snarky.

Oh, and doesn’t fall for my bullshit.

In fact, I don’t even think she likes me.

That’s okay.

I’m an athlete, and I’m used to challenges.

You don’t make it as far as I have in my sport without having goals in mind.

I’ll pursue her like I’m pursuing the MVP award this season.

And, I will conquer.

 

REVIEW

I love a good sports romance and this was exactly what I needed after a long day at work!

Rose’s life was once what some would call perfect, her career was about to lift off and she’d found the man she wanted to spend the rest of her life with. But after tragedy strikes, it turned out it wasn’t quite as perfect as it seemed. Now years later, Rose has realised her dreams as a school teacher but her love life is non-existent, choosing to guard her heart against further pain. However, she wasn’t expecting a famous baseball player to come knocking on her defences.

John is used to getting what he wants, and when Rose snubs his advances it only makes him more determined. But when he gets to know her better he realises that there’s a lot more to Rose’s defences than he thought. Will he be able to win her over and prove that her heart is safe with him?

I really enjoyed this book, particularly the chemistry between the two of them – I especially liked their obsession with the PS4 game and the associated conversations! If you’re looking for an easy read with a guarenteed happy ending, this is the one for you!

I received an ARC in exchange of an honest review.

Millionaire Baller Baby by Rie Warren 

Love a sports romance? This is the one for you!
Blurb
She’s NFL royalty. He’s the star quarterback of a tanking team. When she takes ownership, balls will roll . . . and the truth will out.

Rafe Macintyre—the rocket-armed Carolina Crush quarterback—has nothing to lose and everything to prove. All because of one woman . . . Miss Peyton Fox. When the tough-as-nails chick takes over as team owner, Rafe is ready to turn the epic-fail season into a Super Bowl championship. But the winning has to start with Peyton’s love.

No stranger to playas on and off the field, Peyton Fox is born and bred NFL royalty. Been there, done him, and called the plays even before she took up the Carolina Crush crown. She has zero time for a love life and even less time for games unless they happen between the endzones. Unfortunately, Rafe Macintyre has one hell of an arm, and he’s full of hot southern charm. He’s not too bad to drool over either, but it’s been five years since she tangled with him—a mistake she doesn’t plan on repeating.

The consequences of one night of rebellion will last a lifetime. It’s all fun and games until someone gets knocked up.

Review
I’ve been reading a lot of sports romances lately and I really enjoyed this one! When Peytons father passes away she becomes the the team owner of  Carolina Crush. She’s passionate about the team but there’s one person she’s dreading to see again – Rafe Macintyre, the star quarterback. When he was first drafted Rafe celebrated by seducing Peyton into his bed then forgetting all about it the next day. Little did he know that that night would change their lives forever. Peyton is keeping secrets and Rafe isn’t letting her go – will they find their HEA? I really enjoyed this book purely because of the way Peyton and Rafe interacted – it was brilliant! Some of the stuff Peyton came out with was hilarious. Yes it’s very obvious what Peytons secret is and where the book is going (I mean the title says it all) but I still loved this book regardless of knowing what would happen. Great, easy read with a hot quarterback – what more could you want?

Excerpt

I led Peyton upstairs after grabbing her bag, our hands brushing together sending that same hot sizzle coursing through my body.

“You can shower up in here.” I guided her into my room, giving it a quick once over.

I’d changed the sheets, made the bed, tidied the fuck up . . .

Dammit. I’d missed a pair of briefs on the floor.

Swiftly kicking them under the bed while Peyton inspected the ocean view outside the tall windows, I said, “Bathroom’s through that door. I put out fresh towels for you.”

And dammmn, Peyton looked good in my bedroom when she spun to face me. “This is your room?”

Mmm.” My gaze lingered on her body and that goddamn bikini-thing.

“What about you?” she asked, strolling closer.

“Are you inviting me to join you in the shower?” Because if so I was in danger of shredding my shorts with my rapidly hardening cock.

“Maybe.” She blushed deliciously.

Drawing her straight against me, I brushed a light kiss over her smooth, slightly salty lips. “Trust me, darlin’. If my mom and Liv weren’t here I’d have us both stripped down and you soaking wet in ten seconds flat.”

Her fingertips made small circles through the black hair on my chest, and I cursed quietly. “Who says you haven’t already made me wet?”

I barely refrained from mauling her. She had to feel the solid bar of my cock hot and throbbing and pressing against her belly.

“I’d love to find out.” My palms skimmed to her hips, but she pulled back an inch.

Her cheeks flushed even more. “I suppose this happens a lot.”

“What?”

Her bare feet overlapping, she shrugged. “Having women over. And I don’t mean your mom and Liv.”

I tilted her chin beneath my knuckles, lifting her eyes to mine. “Peyton Fox, you’re the first woman who’s ever been in this bedroom. I swear.”

She whimpered once then I crushed her against me. The floodgates opened and our lips slid together. She gripped the back of my neck. I hauled her up and wrapped her legs around my waist. Our hot tongues tangled, tasted. And I was so close to slamming her against the wall. Her grinding hips were making me crazy.

When she started nibbling my neck with her soft moist mouth I had to break away before I ripped her suit off and tackled her to the floor.

Fuck me. Her nipples were making peaks in the material of that sexy blue suit, so hard I could think of nothing but sucking them.

“Rafe.”

Huh?”

“You’re staring at my boobs.”

I stared some more. Mighta drooled, too. “Because I want them in my mouth.”

When she started untying the string behind her neck, I pivoted away. “Fuck. Don’t test me, Pey.”

I heard the wet slap of her suit hitting the floor, and it took the last shred of my willpower to keep my eyes glued straight ahead. Struggling to breathe deeply enough for air to actually inflate my lungs, I stood like a wooden soldier. A very stiff wooden soldier.

And when I felt her bare tits—warm from the sun—brush against my back, I jerked forward as if burned.

“Now I gotta go cool down before I do something everyone will hear.” I rushed out of the room, her smoky laughter following me all the way. 

Hurrying downstairs, I stripped off and dove into the outside shower, hitting that shit on straight-up ice cold. No joy. Even the icy prickles of water couldn’t deflate my cock.
