ZackBook: Zack

Author: Sawyer Bennett

Genre: Contemporary Sports Romance

Release Date: June 9th, 2015

New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett goes for a hat trick with the latest romance in a sexy series about cool-as-ice hockey players and the women heating up their lives.

Warning: The following contains spoilers from a cliffhanger in Garrett.

Rising star Zack Grantham has been stuck in a downward spiral of grief that has put his career on hold. Back on the road with the Carolina Cold Fury, still crippled by emotional baggage, and now a single dad, he’s in need of some serious help with his son. But while the nerdy new nanny wins his son’s heart, Zack isn’t sure he’s ready for a woman’s touch—even after getting a glimpse of the killer curves she’s hiding under those baggy clothes.

Kate Francis usually keeps men like Zack at a distance. Though his athlete’s body is honed to perfection, he refuses to move on with his life—and besides, he’s her boss. Still, the sparks between them are undeniable, tempting Kate to turn their professional relationship into a personal one. But before she makes a power play for Zack’s wounded heart, Kate will have to open him up again and show him that love is worth the fight.

Review ~ No One Like You by Kate Angell

NoOneLikeYouBook: No One Like You

Series: Barefoot William #4

Author: Kate Angell

Genre: Contemporary Sports Romance

Format: e-book

Page Count: 320

Published: Kensington, April 28, 2015

Source: Publisher

For Rylan Cates, the gloriously sunny beachside town of Barefoot William may be home, but the pro baseball player needs to focus on spring training. Hiring a personal assistant to keep him and his four dogs organized for the next eight weeks is the first step–and Beth Avery is the perfect pinch hitter.

Beth is still looking for her place in the world, and a couple months caring for Rylan’s two dachshunds, his golden retriever, and a Great Dane named Atlas should shore up her finances before she moves on. Except it’s Atlas who won’t budge, pushing her toward tanned, scruffy, sexy Rylan every chance he gets. One more strike and she’s calling the dog out–unless she and Rylan admit that the attraction they’re feeling is a game-winning grand slam. . .

No One Like You


If someone asked me to describe this book in just one word, I think it’d be disappointment. Starting from its cover-and that saying goes both ways, I know- with its plot about a baseball player needing a personal assistant, adding to the mix his four dogs, I thought I got all the ingredients for a good read. And that was the problem with this story. All the ingredients were present, yet the end result was not tasty.

For a book whose hero is a baseball player, for starters, this story had very little baseball in it. Almost all the sports related scenes were skimmed over which is not something I’d like in my sports romance. If there will be no sport present, then what’s the point of me reading this subgenre? I kept waiting for more details during competitions but unfortunately all I got was a summary and a pat on the head and thanks-for-coming-see-you-next-time.
