Baseball has never been sexier in an all-new novel by New York Times Bestselling Author, K. Bromberg. 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?

4.5-5 stars! (for the cliffy) ;)
K. Bromberg sure knows how to leave us readers hanging, but in the best way possible. This book had me turning the pages from the beginning. I wasn’t sure what to think of Easton (H) at first but he redeemed himself and it didn’t take long.
Scout was awesome from the get go. I loved how strong she was but also the things she was dealing with left her vulnerable too. She didn’t let her vulnerability show and owned her position as a PT for these famous baseball players in predominantly a man’s world. She has never let a player get to her except “The Player,” her new client Easton.
“I like Easton. And not just that lusty kind of indifferent attraction I feel occasionally with players I work with.”
Easton needs to get back on the field within a certain time frame, or risk his career and being traded this is all on the line, which also leaves him vulnerable. He doesn’t know what to think about his new therapist, he wants the best and he hasn’t even heard of her before but what he does know is that he is instantly drawn to her.
Scout is scared of the ramifications getting involved with Easton will entail and Easton won’t give up which puts this fun, sexy, witty spin on the story. I love how it’s the guy after the girl and not this love sick girl trying to get this player with the bad reputation. Easton is good people and I love that.
“A contract is business, Scout. But this? You. Me? This is pleasure.”
Easton and Scout both have similarities in family issues, they can relate having to live in their father’s footsteps, and they can bond with each other over these things. Towards the end of the book there is a scene between Scout and Eaton’s father that I just loved. I had it highlighted to quote but I decided I’m not going to. It’s too good to spoil.
Oh my god and the end, my heart was racing and I was turning the pages so fast and that’s exactly how she wrote it. Kristy did that so well, really had you feeling that rush…and then BAM!
We have many secrets to learn! I cannot wait for book two!! Is it June yet?
