Easton Wylder is baseball royalty. The game is his life. His passion. His everything.
So, when an injury threatens to end Easton’s season early, the team calls in renowned physical therapist, Doc Dalton, to oversee his recovery. Except it’s not Doc who greets Easton for his first session, but rather, his daughter, Scout. She may be feisty, athletic, defiant, and gorgeous, but Easton is left questioning whether she has what it takes to help him.
Scout Dalton’s out to prove a female can handle the pressure of running the physical therapy regimen of an MLB club. And that proof comes in the form of getting phenom Easton Wylder back on the field. But getting him healthy means being hands-on.
And with a man as irresistible as Easton, being hands-on can only lead to one thing, trouble. Because the more she touches him, the more she wants him, and she can’t want him. Not when it’s her job to maintain the club’s best interest, in regards to whether he’s ready to play.
But when sparks fly and fine lines are crossed, can they withstand the heat, or is one of them bound to get burned?
***I was given the opportunity to read this ARC for an honest review***
STUNNED! I am just STUNNED! I feel like I’ve been reading at a steady pace getting close to the end…I can see the finish line…AND I HIT THE WALL!
That is the feeling I had when I finished reading this book.
I love sports romances, especially baseball. My favorite sport of all time. And that this is also about a catcher (same position I used to play), made it all the better!
K. Bromberg has done it again in this love story between an injured legacy-carrying catcher for the Austin Aces and the new trainer, also a legacy-carrying, physical therapist. Both have a deadline to meet. Easton Wylder to get back into shape to return to the game and Scout Dalton to prove that she can bring “The Player” back to original playing form.
They have the best chemistry ever! Both can give and take what each can dish out. Each wanting the same ending, to get the player back onto the field. But there is the underlying attraction that gets in the way that neither of them can ignore.
Scout has grown up around baseball. Her father being the most sought out physical therapist int eh game. It only seems natural that she fall for a baseball player as well. But that is one line she has never crossed. “Clear mind, hard heart” her fathers mantra when dealing with a player. Only when having to work this case for her father, due to his ailing health, it’s hard for her to do.
Easton Wylder, is the son of the great Cal Wylder, who also played his entire career with the Austin Aces. Some would think that it would have been great to grow up and learn from the great, doesn’t know that half of it. A father always wanting perfection, driving hard to get everything right. At bat and on the field. Easton always had to get the play right.
The one thing that is the same for both, is their love for the game. The baseball field is their church where they go to find sanction. The one place that will always be their for them. But is also the one place that haunts them. They find comfort in each other in more than just the physical sense. Scout can appreciate the little things that Easton does behind the scenes of the ball field. She doesn’t like him for his status (well, maybe his baseball playing stats) or being a “baseball bunny”. And that is what attracts Easton to her as well. How she is completely different from all the other women that he’s around.
This is a must read for any K. Bromberg fan or if you’re reading one of her books for the first time, you will become hooked!
