RT Rating

Baseball fans should enjoy this fun, exciting and emotional book, but those not so fond of the sport might find it a bit repetitive. The hero is basically a nice guy, but often comes across as conceited. Additionally, the ending is rather disappointingly abrupt.

After an unfounded claim by a woman baseball fan against defensive catcher Wade O'Riley, he needs to project a false front of stability. To that end, Heat team publicist Samantha McNead is drafted to pretend to be his girlfriend for a month.

With an intimate encounter in their past and the overwhelming attraction they feel for one another now, pretending to be in love is not all that difficult. The real test of both of their determination not to get involved will come when its time to walk away from this fake relationship, especially after Samantha sees a side of Wade she never knew existed when her young nephew comes to stay with her.
