Title: The Ace
Series: Men of the Show #2
Author: Rhonda Shaw
Release Date: April 14, 2014
“Love ’em and leave ’em” has been real estate agent Karen Bently’s motto for as long as she can remember. She doesn’t need a man, except to make her toes curl. Or so she thought, until her longtime crush, Ace pitcher Jerry Smutton, sets his sights on her.
After signing one of the largest baseball contracts in history with the Detroit Rockets, Jerry enlists Karen to help him find the house of his dreams. Their connection is instant and electric, but neither of them is the relationship type. When Jerry proposes a friends-with-benefits arrangement, that suits Karen just fine.
Passionate sleepovers soon turn into long, romantic evenings… Still, Karen and Jerry refuse to acknowledge they’re a couple. Karen insists that she’s immune to Jerry’s heart-melting charm. Jerry’s not ready to settle down. Denial is the name of the game, until one pitch changes everything…
#1 The Changeup
4 BIG HEARTS!
I loved Jerry and how he brought his pitching technique into the relationship. It made it quite comical how he always kept Karen dizzy and trying to figure out his next move. Karen could be a bit frustrating at times, like you just wanted to smack her upside the head and say "Dude what the hell are you waiting for?". But I totally got it too and understood where she was coming from. I loved her sassy mouth and how for the most part she spoke her mind. This was for sure a very heart warming fun read. I smiled and laughed throughout most of it and teared up a few times!! I really hated that it ended. I wanted more!! Good page turner here so if you love a sweet athletic guy, get to one clicking this one!
