Outfielder Calvin Ramsey returns to his Texas farm home after being released from his team, an unexpected surprise sure to tarnish the family baseball legacy. But when he finds a sexy stranger acting as the temporary caretaker for his childhood home, all thoughts of baseball disappear.
She won’t fall for another player
After losing her savings to a swindler ex-boyfriend, Josie Vance moves to Last Stand to start fresh where no one knows her unhappy past or the con that bankrupted her. But her peaceful healing time evaporates when the homeowner’s son arrives and throws himself into life on the farm—and charming Josie. She can’t risk an affair that draws attention to her or her past. Especially not when the public’s fascination with the baseball-playing Ramsey clan is at an all-time high. Can she keep her secrets, her low profile, and her heart too?
|This book is a short read and has Calvin Ramsey being cut from the major league baseball team he was with. Now showing up at his mother’s home he is upset that she is not there and that the caretaker that she hired she ran no background check on. This first got me because during his 10 years of playing pro ball he hardly ever came home but now he wants to run everything. Josie and him come to an agreement and they sort of work things out. He then begins to work with his grandfather who would like him to stop playing ball and take over the family farm. He, of course, wants to get back into the game which has been his life forever. Josie and he begin a romance after going to one of his brothers’ minor league games. It is there that Josie begins to see just how much baseball has been the focus of the family especially when they get back to the house and she sees pictures of their sister receiving an award but the boys are all looking at the father and not at their sister. When Calvin receives some news over the internet about Josie he, of course, thinks only bad things and how this will affect his baseball career if he should have a shot with another team. Saying some pretty harsh things to her and not listening she leaves and he is given his own medicine by his mother who sets him straight by already knowing the information and more of it. Telling him to fix it and thinking the story is going to continue it ends abruptly. I felt it did and I felt that there were many unanswered questions. I did like the grandfather and Josie characters though. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 3 stars. Follow us atwww.1rad-readerreviews.com|
