Pitcher Aiden Kyle knows the Triple Play Curse has the ability to mess with his life and with his team’s performance. And, now that the curse has been triggered, Aiden also knows he has to do all he can to avoid being its next victim. And that means strippers and hand lotion in the shower for the rest of the season for him. Until Lily Dupree whirls into his world with a crash that puts a kink in his plan. If Aiden can find a way to help Lily and get her out of his life, he just might avoid being the next victim of the curse.
The Triple Play Curse
Every member of the Strikers, San Francisco’s professional baseball team, knows about the Triple Play Curse. When one Striker falls in love and gets either married or engaged during the season, two more will fall for a total of three. And, whenever the curse is in play, the team suffers for it. More errors and injuries, lost pennant runs, you name it. No one wants to trigger the curse.
Book One: Game Changer
Book Two: Game Maker
Book Three: Game Clincher
Each book in the series is a standalone plot with no cliffhangers. The series can be read in any order but readers may enjoy it best read from book one through three. These books were previously published under the same title as part of Bella Andre’s Game for Love World.
I received a complimentary copy of this book and I am voluntarily reviewing it.
This was a great quick read. A nice read during lunch or just if you need a break in the afternoon. While you don't have to read the first book in the series to read this one, I would highly recommend it.
Aiden is a pitcher for the San Francisco Strikers, he doesn't do relationships especially during the season. The players believe in a Triple Play Curse. If a player falls in love, two additional players will as well or the team will suffer for it. Aiden loves the benefits of being a pitcher, the gorgeous women that throw themselves at a professional ballplayer that is. Lily is working a second job at a strip club as a waitress. Well at least she tries. She is a klutz with a capital K! If fact, she spills a tray of drinks all over Aiden on her second night. The rest of the journey to their HEA is a fun one.
The plot is well written. I just spotted a few grammatical errors nothing egregious. The characters were fun to read about especially Aiden with his commitment phobia. I loved the dual POV format and seeing how these two characters were really dealing with the situations that they found themselves in.
There were several scenes that I would classify this book for people over the age of 18. It was nothing of erotica in nature but it may offend some.
