Brek Stryker is having the year of his life.
He is in position to break all of his father's
pitching records, and he is engaged to marry the mayor of
the town. Not
only is he engaged, but his fiancée is nothing like his last
one (Taylor) and he thinks that this is just what he needs.
Taylor is stunned when her sister Eve lets her know Brek is
She has always thought she would be able to talk with
him about why she left him at the alter all those years ago.
Now she might not get the chance.
So she actually bangs up her knee while skiing and
comes back to Richmond to make amends.
The problem is that instead of making amends, she
ends up making things worse.
She realizes she is still in love with Brek who wants
nothing to do with her.
Additionally, Brek’s relief pitcher (Sloan) seems to
be hitting on her when he really is attracted to her sister
Eve. Will Sloan
and Eve get together? Or will he live up to his love‘em and
things don’t seem to be as good in Brek’s life as in the
past. He is
still drawn to Taylor, his fiancée is trying to keep a
distance that he doesn’t like, and there is a rumor that his
batting nemesis might be traded to his team.
When Taylor ends up in the hospital from her knee
injury, he decides that he will be the friend she needs to
Will the rest of his life straighten out? Will they
acknowledge the flames that are still between them?

chocolate and oh, chocolate, as all four characters are
written so well that it was easy to become involved in their

just might convert me to baseball after all.
I enjoy reading about the lives and times of
characters we have met in the past and their interactions
with the new ones. I
also want to point out that you do not need to read the
series in order, though if you start with
you will find yourself hunting for the others.
I have to say that if there is any complaint I have
it is that I will have to wait another year to read the next
in the series. It is
with great pleasure that I am Joyfully Recommending
