TOO HOT TO HANDLE                         KATIE ROSE

Too Hot to Handle (The Boys of Summer, #2)Nikki Case is no fan of baseball. Her ex gambled away a fortune on the sport, and now her PR firm has tasked her with cleaning up the league’s most notorious bad boys. The New Jersey Sonics are known for wild womanizing and booze-fueled brawls, so Nikki expects the worst. Her first stop in the battle to win hearts and minds is star hitter Jake Baldwin—a legendary ladies man so smokin’ he threatens to melt her tough-girl armor.
Although his teammates prank her without mercy, Jake admires the way Nikki gives as good as she gets. She may be the queen of frost, but there’s kindling beneath those sultry curves—and he’s just the man to ignite it. But when a PR nightmare lands the Sonics in headlines across the country, Nikki is ready to walk. Only then does Jake realize how important she is to the Sonics’ success—and that winning the love of a good woman is no game.

     When you have a winning team who has begun to believe the hype about their greatness what then?  You know the wild off hour parties, drunken behavior, and barroom fights.  Not the image you want your team to portray.  You go looking for the best person for the job and that just happens to be, Nikki Case, PR rep.
     She has been brought into change the image of the team to make them a team parents would want their kids looking up to.  On her first day on the job within 5 minutes of talking to the team she managed to get their best pitcher Chase suspended for sounding off during her shpill.  Then, she got Jake Baldwin their shortstop benched for being late.  Things were going to change Mr. Caine, the GM, had given her full rein of the team.
     When Jake did arrive they found out he had over slept due to the flavor of the girl, from the night before, he was so tired.
That’s when Ryan came up with the bet before telling him. 1.) He was benched. 2.) Who the visitor is.  The bet being that he couldn’t get a date with any woman like he said he could.  Because they knew of a woman it would never happen with.  Jake said no way.  He took their bet even with the high stakes and they pointed out the woman and said not only did he have to get a date with said woman but make her fall in love with him.  He said not a problem.  He said, now who is she?  They all pointed to the new PR rep Nikki Case…?
     This is one sweet, funny story.  I enjoyed it a lot.  I enjoyed the interaction between Jake and a young youth he befriends, very endearing.  The relationship between Nikki and Jake hot and steamy but the team as a whole was funny just mean at times.  I loved Pete the head coach and his backbone and kindness to back Nikki’s play for the good of his team.  There were a lot of slow transitions between scenes compared to the first book.  I give this 4 stars.  Provided by Net Galley.
