What happens when you want more in life than just running the bases?
You hang out at home plate and stop playing the field.
He's sexy and irresistible. I've done my best to ignore the magnetism that flows between us. I don't need complications in my life. I can't get wrapped up in his world, the last thing I need is to get attached to a professional athlete. I don’t have time for heartbreak.
Something about her pulls me in. I want to get to know her. I want a chance to show her I'm more than just my career, my paycheck. I'm the man for her. I know I am. No matter how much she resists this connection between us. It doesn't change the fact that she’s my grand slam.
I loved that it's Larissa who is reluctant in this, and Easton is pretty much all in from the very first time they meet. Usually, it is the other way, with the woman willing to risk her heart and the man who is reluctant, so I enjoyed this and the fact that it felt a little different.
I enjoyed the writing style of this and the characters. I liked that you could relate to both of them and that I was able to believe in the relationship. The pacing was pretty good, although I did think the time it took from Larissa to fight the relationship with Easton to being willing to be all in with him was a little quick. But it worked overall.
I liked Larissa. She has some baggage with her that holds her back initially, and I respected that about her. She wasn't willing to go all in immediately, even though there's no denying she's attracted to Easton. I liked seeing her growth as a character throughout the book.
Easton was a pretty good book boyfriend. I like that he was ready to show he was serious right from the start, that he wasn't this typical player Larissa would have to worry about reforming. I like that he wasn't willing to give up on the idea of being with Larissa and I enjoyed his pursuit of her.
I liked how these characters came together. It wasn't easy initially on Larissa's part, but once she was in? She was all in. It made me appreciate their relationship-that it wasn't all easy. It worked well for these characters.
I mentioned this is a single parent romance as well. For me, the child character has to be done well; they can't be an afterthought. The child in this case definitely wasn't an afterthought and had me smiling.
I enjoyed this book. It was a quick read for me and one I would recommend.
