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.


I continue to love this series. This is book two, but it can be enjoyed as a complete standalone. This author has a great ability of making a person who doesn't watch baseball understand and enjoy the fundamentals of the game as well as be engross me in the story. This romance was a great one and I have come to expect to fall in love with all of her characters, even the ones I want to throttle. Why? Because they are written so well! Ok maybe falling in love with people I don't like is pushing it but I do enjoy hating them more.

Ainsley and Cooper's story was certainly an interesting one and quite unexpected. I couldn't get over Cooper and his attitude, but he is quite young and new. So he was forgiven. Because I thought he was very genuine. Ainsley was stuck between a rock and a hard place and I loved the strength she showed. I think she was my favorite character. Now that said I wouldn't have had this book any other way. I loved it and I highly recommend it.

Third Base, #1
