Rarely does a title that claims so much ring so true. Pitch Perfect will thrill sports fans and romance readers alike with the in-depth love of the game and the fiery attraction between the main characters. Emmy is a strong female character with something to prove, yet she’s reluctant in her role as a feminist icon. And Dean brings shades of Kevin Costner’s sexy Bull Durham character to Tucker: a pitcher who wants one more good season. This is the perfect read for those long, lazy days heading into the post-season.
Emmy Kasper has landed her dream job: head trainer for the San Francisco Felons. She’s not going to jeopardize this hard-to-come-by position in the mostly male world of professional baseball. But sparks fly when she meets star pitcher Tucker Lloyd the day before she begins work — the very pitcher she’s supposed to help come back from painful surgery. Can she juggle their mutual attraction and still play by the rules? (SAMHAINPUBLISHING.COM, dl $5.50)
