With a divorce in the works, Annabelle Jones heads out to Southern California, the land of sun and starting over. She wants to prove to herself and her young daughters that she still has what it takes to turn heads as a swimsuit model—that she doesn’t need a man to take care of her. Until an accident forces her to rely on the hunky, yet mysterious man next door…Nathan Cooper is trying to revive his own career. Once a top left-handed relief pitcher, he tried to get over a hidden injury with the aid of banned substances. Not only was he caught and suspended, he was traded and missed out on winning the championship. Now he’s a free agent without a contract, and that means life is ready to play ball…
As is the case with pretty much everyone I’m sure, I was delighted to be right in my hope and prediction for the third book of More Than A Game series. This book, I loved. There was a lovely romance that pushed all my right buttons, a good emotional balance between the hero and the heroine, and an added bonus of children-god, I love stories that involve children and the whole being a family thing.
The story starts with a bang and we delve right into circumstances. Though things may seem rushed, the story actually had a very good pace. Everything happened at the right time, leaving me very well satisfied with how things progressed and how feelings evolved.
