They say opposites attract. Someone needs to tell that to Emerson Scott.
All I ever wanted was to play ball. When an act of sheer stupidity took that dream away, I thought I’d never bounce back. But now, I have the opportunity to coach an up-and-coming phenom, and I'm giving it all I've got. The fact that I've been lusting after his smoking-hot sister only sweetens the deal. Emerson may be buttoned up like a school librarian, but I play my best when I’m under pressure...and I always bring the heat.
Never lose focus. Never lose control. Those are the first two rules in my carefully calculated plan for success. Finding myself thrown into the role of guardian for my little brother was not part of that plan. But I can adjust for Jay’s sake. I’m not about to let one change make me lose sight of my goals. Too bad Jay’s hot young baseball coach doesn’t seem to give a fig about my plans. He has one of his own - and it includes me. Gavin Monroe may play like a pro, but that boy will never win this game.

Wonderful RomCom & Narration🎧 Captivating & Heartfelt!
A Sports Romantic Comedy, Carolina Connections, Book 4
By: Sylvie Stewart
Narrated by: Kelsey Navarro
Sylvie Stewart pens another amazing and enjoyable read. I am loving her “Carolina Connections” series, the characters and their stories are awesome. This book is Gavin and Emerson’s story. Gavin, who was first introduced in the 1st book “The Fix” he lived with his sister, Laney for a few years before getting his act together. He works part-time in Nathan’s construction company and works as a coach in an elite baseball academy for gifted kids. Emerson, a corporate lawyer, her goal is to make partner so she is all about work. She has her brother, Jay, living with her, Jay is a talented baseball player and caught the eye of Gavin and his boss. He calls his mother to get permission for him to join the academy and she agrees. He soon finds out he has to talk to her daughter, who is Jay’s legal guardian. Emerson is more than happy to have Jay attend the academy. Gavin finally meets her and when he does he is intrigued, she has no time for dating but Gavin works his charm on her, first with texting and then in person, persistence pays off and they start to date. I loved how everything plays out in this great opposites attract story, it is all plotted out nicely with plenty of drama, a bit of angst, some great humor, lots of emotions and heartfelt moments as well as hot and romantic ones. Great seeing some of the gang again, especially Fiona, who always comes to the rescue. Emmy’s mother is a hoot as is her friend Ari who is full of personality. My heart went out to Emmy who was always trying to live up to her fathers standards, it was great that she finally realized it and her standards are the only ones she needs to live up to. Sylvie Stewart, thank you for another fantastic book, I am looking forward to what comes next in this wonderful series.
Kelsey Navarro is a terrific narrator and voice artist. She performs the voices for all the characters, giving each their own unique sound and personality. She brings them life and their story to life captures their emotions and passion which is projected into her performance. She sets the perfect tone for the story, adds the perfect dramatic touch and lands the humor with ease. Kelsey Navarro is an entertaining storyteller and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another great listen🎧
