After an unexpected twist of fate, All-Star catcher Easton Wylder is left questioning the loyalty of everyone around him.
Even the woman who shares his bed, Scout Dalton.
But if Easton thought being uprooted to the last place he expected was the only challenge life had to throw at him, he was dead wrong.
With an ailing shoulder and his career in limbo, his decision to make an unexpected change leads him to question everything – Scout’s love, family loyalties, and whether he can conquer the one obstacle he’s never been able to overcome. The secret he’s never shared with anyone.
He may be a man pushed to his limits, but he’s hell-bent on proving his worth no matter the cost.
Scout Dalton may just regret her decision. She shows how tough it is trying to be a woman in a man’s world. Easton “East” Wylder is not very happy. He has a tough decision that could be life altering which adds some realism to this story. Trust was a big issue at the beginning of this book. With baseball season heating up, what a great time to read this duet.
The author has written a character that when he’s in a scene my hackles rise up – I’d like two seconds with him. He has no redeeming qualities and this shows how Ms. Bromberg does a great job in getting my emotions involved here. She shows the tough decisions we sometimes have to make and the consequences of them. It’s a great demonstration of a person overcoming a personal challenge. A person can be embarrassed by it but we just have to trust those that love us and believe that it’s something that can be overcome – not the perfect word but when you read the scene you will know what I mean.
I had a hard time reading some of Scout’s scenes but that’s because they hit me personally – brought tears to my eyes several times. My nerves were a little raw but I power through because I like where this story was going. It’s also another indication that our author is very good at what she does. It’s a book that could also be a wake up call for those parents that put unrealistically high expectations on their children. It’s unfair to them and in the end is it worth it?
As you get to the end of the book, Scout says a very profound statement. It’s a time where I have a tear in my eye (again) and a smile on my face. Then Easton tells her something and dang don’t those tears make a reappearance. As you read the Epilogue you will understand why this is a duet – you’ll do it with a smile on your face. And glad that you had a chance to read both books in order.
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 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 maintain the club’s best interest, in regards to whether 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?
