Chance for Home by Traci Hunter Abramson + $25 and Book Giveaway

Beautiful pre-med student Kari Evans believes she’s found the man of her dreams—right up until the moment she discovers he’s a two-timing cheat. Desperately gathering the pieces of her broken heart, she realizes that what she needs most is space to reconsider her future. A summer in Washington, DC, with her professional baseball player brother, Ben, sounds like just the change of scene she’s after. But if complicated romantic entanglements are what she’s trying to escape, she’s out of luck. Ryan Strobel has had it with spotlight-seeking women. As third baseman for the Washington Nationals, he’s dealt with more than his fair share of opportunistic admirers—but his ex-fiancée, Brandi, may be the worst. When the woman refuses to take no for an answer, Ryan’s teammate Ben offers a crazy solution: Ben’s sister will pose as Ryan’s new girlfriend. Though an unlikely pair, Ryan and Kari find themselves getting surprisingly comfortable with the charade. Soon, the line between fact and fiction is blurred, and the very real feelings that develop between the couple are undeniable. But when faced with the interference of conniving exes, family objections, and the reality of their very different lives, are Ryan and Kari destined to strike out in the game of love?

Traci Abramson is best known for her suspense novels, but not long ago she made the jump into clean romance and I'm so glad she did.  This is the second book and while I guess it isn't a series, characters from the first book are in this book as prominent secondary characters.  So you don't have to read these books in order, but you might want to just for the backstory.  

Hello, BASEBALL!  I love when books encompass things I love.  Like music or books or chocolate or baseball!  :)  In this book Ryan is a professional baseball player and is good friends with his teammate Ben.  Ben has a sister, Kari, who is conveniently available to help Ryan out of a bit of a sticky situation.  From there, the two develop a friendship that leads to more.  Kari spends a lot of time at the baseball field and I wanted to be there with her.  

Kari is an easy girl to like.  She has a go with the flow attitude for the most part which is important with Ryan's spotlight career and extra unwanted attention.  Kari and Ryan encounter bumps in the road, but nothing too over the top of unbelievable.  The whole story felt real and was easy to settle in with.  I really enjoyed it!  It hit the spot and satisfied my craving for a sweet romance.
