♥ Story ♥

This Novella is short but oh so sassy good. If you are starting with this title, then you get some early introductions to the sights and sounds that makes up the “world” that is this series. You will also get to meet and greet a few characters that you will see again.

Jessica Song is interning for spring training, and spends way to much time talking to her lady bits. Jay Pak Ahn is a sponsored rookie pitcher from Korea trying to make a good showing that will hopefully lead to a long term spot on an American team.

Both of them are horny and tired of waiting for a relationship to get some. They are both gun shy on the relationship front because of their exes and decide to help each other out so they can indulge in the carnal. There is just this one big problem, neither are truly casual sex kinda people so they can’t help but get feelings involved in the equation.

I feel bad for Jessica that her default thoughts on any expressions of emotion by Jay is automatically one of regret. Once she finally confesses her back story, you can see where that stems from, but she does take it to the extreme. Usually those thoughts come with the goodbyes or lack of contact after the deed, not the moment after climax.

There are some twists and turns that will come as a surprise. This does not play out in a predictable fashion. It does have some throat punch worthy moments, so be prepared to run the gambit of emotions even for a short listen.

Playing the Rookie is a cute insta-love short story that is perfect for a spring afternoon. It will definitely help get you in the mood for Spring Training! It is packed with steam, drama, and love all in only 100 pages!

The narration was amazing! I really enjoyed listening to Tor and Charley and will be on the look out for more by them!

Funny and Sexy

I liked this story about Jay and Jessica. They meet in an unusual and hilarious way. I won't spoil it since you will have to hear it for yourself. Jessica has an inner voice that gets her into trouble a couple times when she tries to talk back in her head but accidentally speaks out loud. Jay is Korean and is brought to the US to play pitcher. Jessica, part Korean, is an intern for the summer baseball camp. They do have an attraction to each other but circumstances and misunderstandings keep them apart. I really enjoy Rachelle's way of bringing in different races to her stories. This was an interesting and enjoyable audio book with the narrators doing just their own parts. I really liked Charley Ongel and Tor Thom and would like to hear more from them. I highly recommend this book. I received a free copy in exchange for my honest review.
