HEARTTHROB (American Royalty #1)

HEARTTHROB                                    ROBIN BIELMAN

He likes a challenge…

Here’s the deal: I’m the best center fielder in the major leagues. I’m also the guy who cost his team the championship game and acted very unsportsmanlike. So, when the team hires a social media manager to repair the damage to my reputation, I don’t argue. But then I meet Chloe Conrad, and I suddenly understand what people mean when they say they have an instant connection to someone. Which means I’m in serious trouble. Chloe’s a smart, sexy distraction I can’t afford, but one date can’t hurt, right? Only she turns me down. And just like that, it’s game on.

She’s sworn off love…

Finn Auprince is the hottest player in the major leagues. Look up “It Factor” in the dictionary and there’s his handsome face. He’s also my biggest client and I don’t care how easy it is to talk to him or how fun it is to manage his social media accounts, I will not give in to his charms. Then one drunken night, I tell him about my curse: all my previous boyfriends have found their soul mates while dating me. One more heartbreak, and I’ll never recover. But Finn doesn’t believe in curses—he believes in me. Professionally and personally. He sets out to prove the universe isn’t against me, and that his one true love isn’t waiting around the next corner.

The problem is…can we play the game of love and both come out on top?


     How many of us, at one point or another, have now been in a position of fear in a relationship.  Not physical fear per se but fear of the rejection or not being enough.
     Well, try being Chloe five times.  This last one has done her in.  After a year, dating when she arrives at her boyfriend's, Leo’s place after being out of the country in, London, he is not the kindest of exes, when it comes to his greeting.  For sure, making her red flags go up.  Every time thereafter she is a way to nice in my opinion.  Just me.
     She is a social media manager.  She gets a new job that she has dreamt about.  The one that will give her one step closer to MLB.  She will be working with, Finn Auprince a pro baseball player.  When his team, The Landsharks finally makes it to the World Series he loses his cool several times with the ump, (side note: her dad.)
     At the said game he also fractures his clavicle, so he is home in a sling.  He needs to be immobile for three weeks in order to avoid surgery.  He is not happy.  He likes his privacy.  Being that his family is in the spotlight a lot then add his own fame of obvious reasons he hates the limelight.  His solitude means a whole lot to him. 
     But so, does family but when he’s healing not so much.  Yet, he can’t say anything because he would, but his brother's balls, the same way.  When he meets Chloe and they have this connection, life changes.  For the better.
     This was a fun story to read.  Finn is such a kind-hearted man.  Who’s always willing to help those who touch his heart and find themselves in need.  Chloe is high energy, fun, funny, and pushes Finn to try new experiences.
     I give this:  4 stars.  Provided by netgalley.com.
