She thinks she knows this player—but he has a few surprise moves.
For Alicia Riley, her job as a sports therapist for the St. Louis Rivers baseball team is a home run—until she becomes the primary therapist for star pitcher, Garrett Scott. Out of the lineup with an injury, he's short-tempered, hard to handle, and every solid inch, a man.
Right now, the only demand he's making on Alicia is that she get him ready to pitch in time for opening day. Except the sexual chemistry between them is so charged, Alicia's tempted to oblige Garrett just about anything. But both their careers are at stake—one bad move and it's game over for both of them.
Why I'm Waiting on This Book
I have a couple of different reasons as to why I'm waiting for this book:
- Jaci Burton is a writer from the St. Louis area (though she no longer lives here, she's from here.)
- This is a really good series overall and the romance is hot!
- I'm not athletic but I'd take up the sport or sports medicine to get close to a player that looks like that!
