The Gentileschi Sisters are daughters of a king, princesses who come to the U.S. to pursue their careers and fall in love with seemingly unsuitable men.
At a Major League Baseball game, the stray pop-up ball is aiming right at neonatal nurse Evvie Gentileschi and hits her foot. Writhing in pain, she allows a complete stranger to help her, but she’s stunned when she discovers he’s the very batter who caused her injury. She has no idea one foul ball will change her life forever.
Star player Mike “The Jag” Jagielski leaps over the dugout, climbs into the stands, scoops up the woman his ball hit and carries her to the medical tent. And damned if she doesn’t turn out to be a smart, witty and surprisingly sensual woman. But there’s no way he’ll let her alter the course of his future.
Despite their protests, the princess and the ballplayer fall madly in love and lose all control of over what comes next.
The glamor of Major League sports and the inner workings of a NICU are the landscape on which the two radically different people struggle to make an impossible relationship work.
Don’t miss this charming six-book series of novellas: I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU, THIS GUY’S IN LOVE, CAN’T HELP FALLING IN LOVE, HOW DEEP IS YOUR LOVE?, LOVE WILL KEEP US TOGETHER and I THINK I LOVE YOU!
Can’t Help Falling in Love with this series over and over again!!!
I received a complimentary copy of this book and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
What a great addition to the series. Each story is so enchanting. The series is about 7 princesses who come to America for different reasons and find love. In this one, Evvie and Mike journey through several pitfalls on their way to their HEA. The journey is tough on the heart but it helps them to see that true love is worth it. I adored see all of the princesses in this story and catching up with those that have already found their HEA.
The plot is endearing and one that I quickly consumed. I adore Evvie and her love and compassion for others. Mike was one that took some getting used to. But Ms. Shay did a fantastic job in making him more understandable once his background was revealed. This book has my favorite dual POV format. Being about to see what the character is thinking and feeling helps me to better understand the character's actions and speech. This was especially true in Mike's case.
I so highly recommend this story.
CAN’T HELP FALLING IN LOVE
Can’t Help Falling in Love. Katheryn Shay
Evvie had tended to a premie that died, decided.to escape and to grieve for a couple of days with Brie. The added plus was the rival baseball teams playing and she was going. Wayward ball and Evvie ankle is hit. Guy comes hot and sweaty and picks her up. Speakers announcing for Mike to come back to the game. He felt bad for he was the one who hit the ball. Going later to check on her and her sister already came and picked her up. Noticing her purse, he grabbed it and left. He plays baseball and she buys season tickets, a good beginning for love. You will love the story, the love for Evvie and Mike, though from different life styles make it work.
Given ARC for my voluntary review and my honest opinion.
I have fallen in love with this series. Each of the Gentileschi sisters are beautiful, kind and unique. Evvie is no different. She is a NICU nurse with a passion for baseball and finds attending games relieves her stress. But, she becomes the victim of an errant baseball. The pro ball player rushes to her aid. So begins a tense association. I love Kathryn Shay’s characters. Her stories are intriguing and I don’t want to put them down.
