Publisher Description

From the New York Times bestselling author of Double Play, Rescue My Heart, The Trouble with Paradise, and the Lucky Harbor novels...

After a woman claims she’s pregnant with Wade O’Riley’s love child, Major League Baseball’s most celebrated catcher and ladies’ man is slapped on the wrist by management and ordered to improve his image. His enforcer is the team’s publicist, the tough and sexy Samantha McNead.

When Wade needs a date for a celebrity wedding, Sam steps up to the plate as his “girlfriend.” But given her secret crush on him and that one awkward night a year ago in a stuck elevator with too much scotch, the whole thing is an exercise in sexual tension.

Wade is thrilled when the pretense turns into an unexpected night of hot passion. But the next day Sam is back to her cool self. As a catcher, Wade’s used to giving the signals, not struggling to read them. Now, to win the love of his “pretend” girlfriend, he needs a homerun—even it involves stealing a few bases…

Loved this book!

I wasn't sure what to expect of Wade as a romantic hero going into this book. The first book in this series by Jill Shalvis depicted him as a fun loving guy, but not really the type to be devoted to one woman. Wade gets his own story here, as well as the often told story treatment of guy and girl pretending to be a couple but falling in love along the way. What could have been a cliche story about love and a the typically uncommitted guy was nothing like that. I, as well as Sam in the story, was pleasantly surprised. The story also had some nice depth and backstory to the main characters, giving Wade and Sam believable hang ups and understandable hurdles as their relationship developed. I also enjoyed the backdrop of the baseball world and can't wait to see these characters, and hopefully this series, continue on.
