Story Overview:
For baseball superstar Garrett Donovan, his contract with the New York Empire baseball team meant he’d finally have the means to secure a future for his family. He should focus on that…not on the sassy, beautiful Jessa Montgomery — or what she looks like naked. Getting involved with the daughter of the Empire’s owner would be career suicide. Jessa is a distraction he can’t afford.

Her father had warned her never to get involved with his athletes, so his request that she keep an eye on his new star player came straight out of left field. The last thing Jessa needs is another spoiled, egotistical ball player to deal with. But Garrett is none of those things. His no-nonsense attitude and smooth Southern charm make her blood burn and her knees weak. Giving into temptation, she is consumed by the pleasure she finds in Garrett’s arms.

Jessa wants to protect his career. Garrett won’t let anything get in the way of their passion.

A passion that could cost him everything.

My Review:
*sigh* I just love sports books and this one was a good one. 

Garrett is just starting out with his baseball career and is participating in his first Spring Training. 

For the first time in her life, Jessa's father, the owner of the team, has instructed her to engage with a player. Garrett is her father's new golden boy...with tons of promise. The problem is that it's always been Jessa and her father...she's always wondered if he wished she was actually a boy and now he has Garrett, the male he wanted. So there are feelings that Jessa is dealing with there.

Added to that is the fact that it's REALLY not a good idea for Garrett's career to get involved with the owner's daughter, but they can't resist each other. And whoa, this book is HOT! From the very beginning of the book these two sizzle off the page....and there is a LOT of sizzling going on. This book fed everything for me. It was really hot and sexy, but I loved the two characters too... and their story. 

The back story for both these characters and their families was great. I loved Garrett's loyalty to his family and supporting all the women that need him. On the opposite side of that was Jessa and her dad who are alone in this world. 

It's not a really long book was exactly what I needed for a distraction on this hot, summer day. This is my idea of summer....READING about a hot, sexy baseball player. I think it sounds like a great new tradition.
