A League of Her Own
By Karen Rock
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Age category: Adult
Release Date: 1 December, 2014
He was attractive, talented…and way off limits.
Heather Gadway may have been a world-class college pitcher and a top university coach, but she's a rank amateur when it comes to managing the Falcons, her father's struggling minor league team. And when it comes to managing her aggravating attraction to Garrett Wolf, their talented new pitcher. It's going to be difficult enough to make it as the first female manager in the league and prove to her overly critical father she's worthy. No distractions. No missteps. And certainly no romances with players. Everything stands between them—including their troubled pasts—even as Heather's world falls apart and Garrett's the one who's there to catch her…
First off, I love baseball! And to combine that love with my love of a clean romance is like perfection! Like peanut butter and chocolate. Like dark chocolate and raspberry. J
So sorry but my love spewing will continue now with my love of Harlequin Heartwarming Line and Karen Rock writing for Harlequin Heartwarming. This is also one of my favorite combinations!
This book had two characters that I fell in love with. Heather and Garrett. Both have faced tremendous difficulty in their lives but both are working so hard to overcome those difficulties. It’s a rough road for them separately and together. As a reader I felt like I had to wait a long time for that first kiss because the tension and build up was killing me! But the kisses were worth waiting for. <sigh>
I picked this book up on NetGalley and started it the same day even though I shouldn’t have. I just couldn’t help myself. The baseball aspect was a lure I just couldn’t escape. It was the story that kept me there though and I finished this book the same day I started it. Yup. That’s some serious reading right there.
