Since reading Jill Shalvis’s Lucky Harbor series I've been digging up whatever I could find from her backlist and came up with this gem. I love sports romance stories anyway and this has Ms. Shalvis’s trademark humor and romance all over it. Another fun read.
Pace Martin, top ranked pitcher for the Pacific Heat baseball team is under a lot of pressure to get this young team into contention for the playoffs. Management wants good publicity so they grant investigative reporter Holly Hutchins access to the team and players including Pace. Holly is an expert at digging out secrets. Everybody has them right? Holly’s innate honesty and dedication to her job has cost her personally before. She finds herself crushing on Pace but cannot let that influence her reporting. Pace’s reluctance to grant her an interview doesn't keep Holly from reporting her findings on his team and his sport. The attraction between the two is downright combustible.
