One night can leave a trail a decade long.
Red, Hot & Blue, Book 5
Ten years ago, a wicked curve ball and a scout for the major leagues gave Cole Ryan his big break. Before he set foot on the bus to training camp, Lizzie Barton gave him everything…then inexplicably broke his heart.
Now he’s back in Pigeon Hollow with a bum arm and a cancelled contract. Lizzie is still there, still keeping her secrets. Still haunting his dreams.
To make sure Cole would have the future he wanted, Lizzie kept her crush on her older brother’s best friend to herself. But in this small town, there was no hiding the results of her one and only night in his arms. With Cole away playing ball, it was easy to pretend he would never know. But now that he’s back it’s only a matter of time.
Right about the time Cole figures out what he left behind, cameras for a reality TV show arrive to film Lizzie’s brother. And suddenly Cole is scrambling to keep the spotlight out of his and Lizzie’s private life…and to convince her they can still make both their dreams come true.
This book has been previously published and has been revised from its original release.
Warning: Contains love that conquers a decade of sitting on the bench…and one night of sex that resulted in a big change in two lovers’ lifetime stats.

Quickie Review:

This is a really short read, so I thought I would do a quickie review for it.

Overall, I liked the story and thought it was fun and entertaining. I liked the little town feel and need to go back and read all the rest from this series because I think they would have more impact as a whole. My only real issue with this one is that I thought Cole was way too quick to forgive and forget. I could understand trying to make the transition easier for their son, but I thought there needed to be more anger...even if it was done mentally or in private.

But that one little thing that bugged me definitely won't keep me from reading and enjoying the rest in the series.
