Book Description:

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:

  1. Jaci Burton is a writer from the St. Louis area (though she no longer lives here, she's from here.)
  2. This is a really good series overall and the romance is hot!
  3. I'm not athletic but I'd take up the sport or sports medicine to get close to a player that looks like that!

What's your "waiting on" pick this week?

  2. I anxiously wait for these books. I mean who wouldn't; you get a great story written by one of my favorite authors, hot, hunky athletes & not to mention, the covers are droolworthy. My books are on the "keeper" shelf & don't even look like they've been read. I didn't want anything to mess up those covers. I agree with your comments on "why I'm waiting for this book". I've even taken up going to spring training. Something I've never done before. It's only a 15 min. drive to the sports park.

  3. Thanks for the comment on my WoW. I love your site! I have such a hard time finding good romance review sites.

  4. Oh wow, that cover...sooooo sexy. The book sounds interesting too, it sounds similar to the TV show Necessary Roughness.

  5. Oooh baseball!!!Love baseball players I'll definitely have to pick this one up :)
