Win the game. Lose your heart.
Everyone knows who I am and that I could have any female fan I want. That's supposed to be the "perk" of playing left field for the Boston Renegades. But I don't want just any woman; I want her.

She should be just another face in the crowd, but I can't stop thinking about the one night we spent together and her look of regret the morning after.

Because Saylor Blackwell is the kind of woman who haunts a man. Smart, sexy as hell, and one of the best managers in the business. She's every ballplayer's dream woman. And I'd do anything to make things right with her. 

I'm done sitting on the bench when it comes to Saylor Blackwell. Time to swing for the fences.

     This book surprised me within the first few chapters.  The subject matter of a young ballplayer gets wrongly accused of a crime against a woman no man should be falsely accused of.  Travis Kidd is accused of being basically too nice and just this once decides not to take this girl home with him.
     Which is good because the Casanova of baseball who has been purposefully been getting himself in trouble to get a certain woman’s attention, Saylor Blackwell, his public relations specialist, to see him.  Well, she sees him now.  Things go south really quickly.
     You see it’s during the offseason and Travis decides to stay in Boston for the off instead of heading for Florida to be on his parent’s yacht.  He got bored at home and decided to go play a little pool and have a few beers.  When a woman wants to play.  He knows she’s trying to hustle him so he plays along.
     He buys her some drinks, they play pool, and they kiss.  No promise of anything else.  When he sees Saylor come in.  He sees she seems off.  So, he says he will get another round to this girl, Blue.  He goes to the bar and says, ‘Hey’ to Saylor.  She is in a mood and basically tells him to step off.  She is not friendly at all.  You see a year ago things between them had heated up sexually until a work thing put it out.  So, now things are tense.  Neither knows the other wants each other.
     But now the girl, Blue as Travis know her, is throwing death stares at Saylor.  Saylor tells him to go back to his cleat chaser.  Soon after Saylor gets up to leave.  Travis sees and excuses himself and follows her out to check on her.  He asks if she needs a ride home.  She says, ‘No.’
     Blue comes out yelling at him and now Saylor too.  Saylor hails a cab she gets in and so does Travis.  When Blue runs after them yelling that Travis will be sorry for this.  Saylor was able to jump out of the cab before is really got going.  Travis didn’t get out he went home.
     The end of all their nights.  Wrong!  They wake up to find out, Travis needs to come in for questioning.  Blue has filed charges against him…
     Saylor knows the truth her job is to help her client.  Plus, she saw something but she has a daughter to protect.  There are things Travis doesn’t know she could lose by coming forward.  So, not only does he want to be close, he needs to be close the press is hounding him.
     The more he’s around Saylor and her daughter, Lucy, the more in love he is.  But the words those three little words scare them both.  I give this: 5++++ stars.  Provided by
