Jase Stevens has a life and career that are heading in one direction… up. His career as the pitcher for the Baton Rouge Gris Gris, the baseball farm team, is garnering him national attention as a major league contract seems to be rapidly approaching. His love life is also not lacking. His devilish good looks and southern charm have women flocking to him both on and off the baseball diamond.
Cally Cooper loves her life and takes pride in the fact that she helps animals that otherwise might be lost due to irresponsible owners and neglect. She runs Love & Paws, a non-profit, no-kill animal rescue center. The animals fill her life with purpose and her heart with love, though lately she finds herself yearning for the love of a good man as well.
After one night of celebration, Jase is arrested and charged with a DUI. Community Service at the Love & Paw's animal rescue center is part of his sentence.
Neither Cally nor Jase are happy about the situation, but neither have a choice in the matter.
Both have preconceived ideas of what the other is like, but as they spend more time together, a spark of attraction takes them by storm. Will they realize that maybe they misjudged each other?
When two people find something they didn't know they needed, will they embrace it or run from it?
Are they willing to take a chance on love or will the idea of opening yourself up to something you never expected have them both running from Rookie Love?

A sweet romantic read
I fell in love with this story from the start. Jase and Cally meet after he makes a mistake and needs to do community service. Cally doesn't want him anywhere near her. While these two are the main characters and were very well developed I have to say the story would not be the same without some of the secondary characters that stole my heart! This book has a little bit of it all. Sweet, sexy, funny, Romance and anything else you can imagine. The author did an amazing job writing a characters like these two that show you can't always judge someone by a past mistake and with kindness and love anything is possible!
I received this book for free as an ARC for an honest review. This was an adorably romantic book that had such a heartwarming storyline that I fell in love with immediately! Although this book was a work of fiction, it did serve as a reminder for me that amazing people, like the characters in this book, actually do exist and that thought puts a smile on my face.
