Easton Wylder is baseball royalty. The game is his life. His passion. His everything.

So, when an injury threatens to end Easton’s season early, the team calls in the renowned physical therapist, Doc Dalton, to oversee his recovery. Except it’s not Doc who greets Easton for his first session, but rather his daughter, Scout. She may be feisty, athletic, defiant, and gorgeous, but Easton is left questioning whether she has what it takes to help him.

Scout Dalton’s out to prove a female can handle the pressure of running the physical therapy regimen of an MLB club. And that proof comes in the form of getting phenom Easton Wylder back on the field. But getting him healthy means being hands-on.

And with a man as irresistible as Easton, being hands-on can only lead to one thing, trouble. Because the more she touches him, the more she wants him, and she can’t want him. Not when it’s her job to side in the club’s best interest if he’s ready to play.

But when sparks fly and fine lines are crossed, can they withstand the heat or is one of them bound to get burned?

MY REVIEW

Who was the dummy who went into this book thinking it was a standalone???


My bad.

Easton Wylder WAS baseball. As the son of baseball royalty, the game was everything to him. So when he got severely injured, the team sent in the best physical therapist in the field, Doc Dalton. However, that's not who Easton got. Instead he was stuck with Doc's daughter, Scout, who was not only sassy, determined and capable, but she was absolutely gorgeous. Scout found that the more time she spent with Easton (and vice versa), the more she got to know the real him, the easier it was to fall for him. Could these two resist the temptation of crossing professional lines? If they stumbled, would they both make it to the other side unscathed?

This book was steamy and sweet with plenty of angst mixed in. Both Easton and Scout were operating under similar issues, burdened by the weight of responsibilities and high expectations. I personally think Easton had to work far too hard to get through Scout's walls and I'm still not sure if he's quite breached them. Regardless, I was thoroughly entertained by his efforts and how he had opened himself up to experience everything with her.

I'm loving where these two seem to be headed and I'm hoping for less of a back-and-forth, push-and-pull effect in the next. Please, let book 2 show these two as a united front! *fingers crossed*
