LOVE ISN’T A GAME . . .
I’ve given up everything for the chance to play major league baseball. Everything. Now I’m so close I can practically hear the crowd chanting my name. There’s nothing that could take my dream away from me . . .
Unless I lose focus. And Ainsley Burke is the most beautiful, distracting woman I’ve ever met. When I’m with her, I can’t think of anything else.
But no matter how much I want Ainsley, there’s no room for love in my game plan. I can give her a quick tour of the bases, but that’s it. Then I have to let her go. If she wants to think I’m a love ’em and leave ’em player, fine.
All dreams require sacrifice. I just wish this one didn’t mean tearing out my own heart.

STEPH’S SEXY 4 STAR REVIEW
Home Run is book two in the Boys of Summer Series and focuses on rookie center fielder player Cooper Baily. He is called up to the majors by the Boston Renegades. The story is well written, very smooth and has a lot of baseball references that are easy to follow.
Spring training has just started in Fort Meyers. There is a lot of pressure on Cooper to perform, but he remains confident. Complicating things is the fact that he was supposed to replace Steve Bainbridge, a veteran center fielder who hinted at retirement last year.
Cooper meets Ainsley Burke during a community outreach and forms an instant connection to her. He is such a straight forward, honest, nice guy. However, Ainsley will not date an athlete.
“There’s no explanation needed. I just don’t date athletes.”
…”I get it. Whatever happened, it must have been bad.”
“I think when you’re lied to repeatedly by someone you love, you lump everyone into one category. For me, that’s athletes.”
Cooper is persistent and finally gets his chance with Ainsley. Things get intense and emotional as they both have many issues to deal with. Their chemistry is great and their sexy time is hot!
Then life gets even more complicated…..
I don’t want to spoil the story so I won’t say any more. I would have liked to have had more details and some additional scenes (ok and more sexy time). In other words, I would have just liked more….. Despite that, it was well written and a really good read. I look forward to the next installment!
