Covering All the Bases (For the Love of the Game #1)

COVERING ALL THE BASES                                JODY HOLFORD


Talk about a wild day... As if being summoned to the deathbed of a grandfather she didn’t know existed wasn’t enough––Isla Bennett meets the man of her dreams. Spends an amazing day playing tourist around Nashville with him. And then finds out she’s inherited the Nashville Slammers major league baseball team. Oh, and her new dream man? He’s the Slammers’ star power hitter. Isla just went from amazing first date to holy heck I’m your boss in the span of a day.

Liam Cruz can’t believe how refreshing it was to spend a day with someone who didn’t know his batting average, the size of his last contract, or heck, even that he’s a baseball player. Now Isla’s thrust into the spotlight, and though she’s more than capable of handling herself professionally, he takes it upon himself to teach her everything he can about the game that is his whole life. But they’ll have to keep it on the DL.

Because doing what’s best for the team means they can never be together––and that might be the toughest play of all.

MY REVIEW



Isla Bennet is wondering why she is in Nashville after being summoned there by a grandfather that she never knew she had. Arriving soon after he passed she is now in a bar because she is still trying to process everything that had transpired in the last 24 hours. Sitting at the bar she is taking everything in including a very good looking bartender who quite a few women keep flirting with. Surprised when he begins to talk to her, she also finds out that without any reservations because of a country music thing she is without lodging. Liam Cruz has finally come home after signing his last baseball contract. Owning the bar he finds it refreshing meeting people and tonight he is glad he met Isla. He helps her with a place to stay and the next day they spend together enjoying the out of the way sights around Nashville. While the day begins to wind down she ends up back at his place and realizes that he must be some big star and not just an owner of a bar. A phone call interrupts everything. She meets her grandfather’s attorney and finds out that she has inherited the baseball team. She also finds out that her father was once a pro ball player and now is after the team, that her brother as well does not think she can run the team and know about their grandfather and that Liam is the star player of the team. Being called to the park he finds out that the women he is falling for are the owner and also the problems that she is facing. What he ends up doing is the best walk-off of his career. Read this wonderful story to find out what happens. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 5 stars. Follow us atwww.1rad-readerreviews.com
