GETTING WOUND UP (Love Between the Bases #2.5)

GETTING WOUND UP                       JENNIFER BERNARD & ERIN NICHOLAS

Caitlyn Murray has never let on that she’s had fantasies about her brother's friend Eli Anderson for years. She'd do anything for the sexy baseball player who walked away from stardom to stay in Sapphire Falls and take care of his family. But she and Eli are friends. Just friends.

So when her brother hatches a plan to get Eli to the pro baseball try-out for the Kilby Catfish and another chance at his dream, Caitlyn is all in. After all, what's a little kidnapping among friends?

A spot on the pitcher's mound for the Catfish isn't the only tempting thing about the spontaneous road trip. Eli already knows that Caitlyn is as sweet as the candies she makes for the Sapphire Falls bakery, but alone with her overnight in the tiny motel room in Kansas, it's impossible to resist the urge to take a little taste.

But when that taste leads to falling for the girl next door just as his front door is moving hundreds of miles away, can Eli really have it all? Or do they have too many strikes against them?

MY REVIEW:

     Must say this book had me hooked from the very beginning.  The characters had such a dimension and a spirit that made you want to keep reading.  Caitlyn is light and airy, and oh so sassy.  Eli is all too serious and sexy as all get out.  Yet, he still carries a dream deep down in his gut.
     So, a master plan was hatched by his best friend’s Bryan, Ty, and yes, Caitlyn.  To get him to his number one dream, to be in baseball, the pros.  Even if it means kidnapping him to do it.  Caitlyn has the ability to charm her way into anyone’s heart and with her sweetness, she is the innocent one that no one will ever suspect especially Eli.  Even you the reader will be sucked in.
     She is so sassy yet, guarded.  She is a romantic yet, extremely practical almost too much for her own good.  She puts family and friends first before herself.  Causing her own heart to ache and break when she should think of herself first.
     Eli is a loving son who when his father, Chip fell ill and was put in a wheelchair he came home from college to care for him, his little sister, and their hardware store.  Leaving a sure thing of a pro career in baseball.  He for sure was on the fast track.
     One good thing he kept up his training and was in shape.  His arm was good but was it good enough he wasn’t sure anymore.  Cait was enough for both of them.  She believed in them and most of all in him.  Their friendship was dear to Eli so he tried hard to believe her. 
     See how these two finally make their dreams come true by being truthful.  For once the brother was for the friend loving his sister.  A pleasant twist to a love story.  See where it goes.
     I give this: 5++++ stars.  Free on Amazon.  Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com.
