After the ultimate abandonment by her family, Savannah Monroe channels her savior-complex tendencies into helping animals because they can't hurt her like people can. Life at the animal rescue shelter has always provided the security and personal reward that she needs to be happy while protecting her heart.
All-star catcher Dylan Prosser always has his head in the game. Accustomed to keeping opponents from stealing bases, Dylan is completely focused on getting the team to the playoffs no matter what the cost. He definitely doesn’t expect anyone to steal his heart and turn his life upside down–least of all, a stray dog and a beautiful girl.
But as she works with Sadie, Savannah soon realizes that his dog isn’t the only one who needs saving…
Sweet Baseball Romance!
I received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review for Netgalley and Cocktails and Books.
This is a sweet baseball romance. I love stories about baseball players and dog rescuing is close to my heart, so I enjoyed this story. It is the third book in the Knights of Passion series and each book is a stand-alone.
This story centers on Dylan Prosser, the new catcher for the Georgia Knights. Dylan first meets Savannah Monroe when he reluctantly agrees to foster a pitbull. Since he spends so much time playing baseball and traveling with the team, Savannah offers to help with the dog. Dylan is serious and his sole focus is on baseball. He has recently been traded to the Georgia Knights and is having a difficult time trying to fit in with the guys. His teammates find Dylan hard to get to know and distant.
Savannah Monroe had dedicated her life to rescuing dogs and all her time and money goes into helping dogs and she hopes to someday open her own shelter. Dylan has never met a woman who is as fun and open as Savannah and she intrigues him. She is honest, upfront and and only cares about rescuing dogs.
I enjoyed these two together. Even though Savannah and Dylan are the total opposites, they are good for each other and they help balance each other out. Savannah helps Dylan lighten up and Dylan puts some structure into Savannah’s life. They are each so caught in their own lives they have never made any time for a relationship. Once they meet, they start open up and try to spend time together. There is a strong attraction between them and lots of chemistry. I enjoyed the story and the characters, my only issue with the book, is its slow pace, I wish it had moved a little faster.
A very enjoyable read
I loved how Dylan and Savannah related to each other. They both have trust issues and there was one hiccup but I loved that they didn't let it go too long. I hope we get to see more of Cody. There is depth to him and would love to see more.
The Game Changer
The Game Changer is book three in Knights series but definitely can be read as a standalone.
Dylan is a Major League catcher for the Georgia Knights. He's trying his best to ensure that he gets his contract renewed at the end of the season so he doesn't need any distractions. When an abandoned dog finds her way to Dylan's house, he takes her to the local shelter because he just doesn't have the time for a pet. It's here that he meets Savannah, dog rescue owner. Savannah is passionate about dogs and is in the process of expanding her rescue business. When Savannah convinces Dylan to keep the dog, he enlists her help in taking of her. These two have off the charts chemistry but can they let go the trust issues they have to pursue something great with each other?
From the very beginning of this story, I was hooked and couldn't put it down. There was a little heat, a little angst, and parts that had me laughing out loud. The characters are well developed and had amazing chemistry. This story had the perfect mix of sports and dog rescue. I love that this story raised awareness about shelters and fostering!! I loved all of the side characters that were introduced in this book. I'm definitely looking forward to Cody's story!!!
