The Winning Season by Alison Packard

Baseball player Matt Scanlon has been on a tear.  The former MVP and good guy has been acting out all season and has just been traded to the SF Blaze the team he has always hated.  He just wants to put his problems behind him and start over.  Unfortunately one of the problems he has yet to put behind is the abysmal way he treated Blaze publicist Kelly Maxwell when they first met.  Kelly Has a job to do and butting heads with Matt isn't getting the job done.  If they can stop hating each other long enough they might actually fall in love.
We met Matt and Kelly in Love in the Afternoon.  Matt was hurting and taking it out on everyone.  Kelly has had problems with men in the past and is not as tough as she appears.  But when these two finally get together the healing begins.  Ms. Packard has a way of making you care about the characters and you want so very much to see them succeed.
I was thrilled to receive an ARC from the Carina Press and NetGalley in return for a fair and honest review.

This book goes on sale July 15th
