When veteran catcher Connor Jackson gets traded to the New Jersey Sonics, he welcomes the opportunity to possibly cap his career with a World Series ring in his home state. But there’s another reason Connor is glad things have come full circle. In pursuit of hardball glory, he left behind his college sweetheart, the one girl he could never forget. Seeing her again stirs up long-lost desires . . . and this time, he’s determined not to strike out.
A divorced mother of four, Tracy Coleman no longer aspires to gossip-mag glam—but she’ll make an exception for a date with Connor. Their chemistry is hotter than ever, and being alone with him is more seductive than she anticipated. Who could blame her for leaving out a little detail like the kids? Now all she has to do is come clean and convince the man of her dreams that they—Connor, Tracy, and her children—have a future together.
I am really loving this series by Katie Rose. The Sonics are an upcoming and coming baseball team from New Jersey and each book in the series has featured hot, talented and caring men that find the perfect woman.
I am such a sucker for the reunited lovers trope. Tracey and Connor were college sweethearts whose relationship ended when his baseball career took off. We don’t get the post mortem of how things ended, however it doesn’t really matter because things are back on!
Connor is at the end of his career and is home for his final season. He is contemplating life and what he wants now. Tracey has ended her marriage and is now a single mother of four little ones. Her ex-husband is such a douche that it made me mad to read about him.
Once Connor gets back in New Jersey, he meets up with Tracey. I loved the shock he got when he met all four kids. Things between Tracey and Connor are hot and heavy, but she comes with more than just a failed marriage.
I found this book to be great! I really liked how Tracey’s life was so normal – carpool, trips to the park and babysitters. It really is out of this world that Connor is back and his life is just so exciting. It was enjoyable how realistic the author made the story. Tracey fretted about the impact of her relationship on her children and their needs were first. Anyone who has ever had a newborn or toddler will laugh at some of the love scenes (which are really hot) when they have to be quiet so as not to wake the children. That amazing time when kids go to bed and you get to do all the adult things you have put on hold – Katie Rose manages to accurately capture the reality and still make it sexy!
If you are into baseball players and like to read about the dynamics of the team, as well as a sweet and sexy romance, then add this one to your list!
