From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Marie Force comes a steamy new contemporary romance about two strangers who find love in the most unexpected way—by saving a life.
Sitting at the top of my game, pitching for Baltimore and a single daddy to the most adorable little girl in the world, I’m living the dream. Until I get the dreaded call that Everly is sick. My entire world stops when the doctors say the only chance my baby has is through a bone-marrow transplant. My life becomes a living nightmare as I wage a war to save my daughter. Nothing else matters. Not my Cy Young Award, not my career, not my team or my talent. None of that can fix her. She needs a miracle. What we get is a stranger... and Maria just might save us both.
My life in Miami might not be glamorous, but it is rewarding. I divide my time between working as a nurse at a free clinic and waitressing at my family’s Cuban-Italian restaurant. After being cheated on by my long-time boyfriend, I’m not exactly looking for Mr. Right but wouldn’t kick him out of bed if he suddenly showed up. Six months after I donated bone marrow to a little girl in Baltimore, I get an email from the child’s grateful father, but everything is anonymous until the one-year mark. I’m desperate to know more about him. The last thing I expect him to be is a gorgeous, famous ballplayer. One email becomes another, until we find ourselves caught up in a friendship neither of us expected, but both desperately need. I’m falling in love with a man I’ve never met.
Read the exciting sequel to How Much I Feel to find out what happens when Austin is scheduled to play in Miami, and the team arranges a meeting between Austin, Everly and Maria.
Another Delicious Treat
This is Maria and Austin’s story. Actually it’s their and Everly’s story. When Maria becomes a bone marrow transplant for a little girl, she has no idea just how much this act of generosity will affect her own future. At the six month mark post procedure, she hears from Mr. A, the girl’s father, thanking her for saving his child. This triggers a correspondence that sets the stage for a most wonderful romance. I love this series, especially the Giordino family, and can’t wait to read the next book!
