Jeff "The Terminator" Holder is the closer for the Texas Mustangs' baseball team, and revered throughout the Major League for throwing inside heat. His twin brother, Jason, the Mustang's catcher, leads the League in hits. They share a love of the game, as well as their identical DNA - but that's not all they share. Pediatric Nurse Megan Long doesn't know baseball, but she does know a sexy guy when she sees one - or two. When she seeks out an autograph for one of her patients, she falls under the spell of two of the sexiest players in baseball. Unable to resist their charms, Megan finds herself in bed with both men, but falling in love with only one. Locked in an epic battle against the steroid pumping Martin McCree, Jeff's obsession with striking out McCree strains his relationship with his brother, and leads to an injury that threatens his career and dents his ego. Megan does her best to get through to him, but if Jeff can't see past his failings to find the love she's offering, he's going to strike out in the biggest game of his life.

I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Firstly, I made a terrible mistake of starting this book before bedtime and at midnight I was saying to myself "ohhh just another chapter"..... then at 2 a.m. I'm wondering "well how are they all going to set out the ground-rules"..... then by 4 a.m. I'm thinking "wow lucky lucky girl but how's it going to work out for all of them"..... and finally by 6 a.m. I've decided "sleep is overrated huh who needs it"..... Then finally the birds started singing as the dawn broke and I thought "ahhhh lovely."
As you can see this was a non-stop listen for me as this very tender ménage starts to unfold with 2 sexy handsome successful baseball stars and a nurse who decide to share their lives with very hot consequences. Yes, it was full of passion and sex (I have however heard far worse) but it was sooo much more. A touching thought provoking tryst that unfortunately can't go the distance when more than hot sex is at play and everyone becomes miserable when love joins the game.
It also focuses on a few baseball games as their feelings are stretched and the games suffer and we hear about Megan's work in the paediatric ward. It's a lovely listen that will pull at your heart strings because you will find yourself empathising with all three of them as the storyline flows from erotica and enters into a true love story.
Worth a credit? Absolutely yes, and I'm really looking forward to the next game in the Mustang series.
I'm proud to be a bookaholic...addicted, obsessed, passionate!!! My favorite way to relax & escape reality....
If you love base ball and sex than this is the book for you. Twin brothers Jason & Jeff play baseball and they both want to share the sweet nurse named Megan. Megan decides she wants to except the offer of a menage. Let's just say....after lots if sex and baseball performance issues. Jason starts to realize he feels like a third wheel. For the first time, Jason decides he needs to find his own woman. He loves Megan but not the same way his brother does. After some confusion and issues are resolved between them. Jeff and Megan decide to be together forever. The book was average. The menage was sizzlin hot. I will continue with the next book.

Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
This is a Very addictive read. I started in the morning and couldn't stop listing - at all. My ear plugs were in my ears non stop for the entire book. Soooo Hot, Every girls dream, 2 very hunky men sharing her in every way possible. This is the first book in this series and the second book will be an automatic download for me as soon as it is released.
I'm an avid reader of Romance and a true romantic at heart. I also read and review in other sub-genres as well. Happy reading!
I met Roz Lee at a conference several years ago. Until recently, I had not read any of her books, since I do not normally enjoy sports romances. After talking to her again at Lori Foster’s RAGT15, I decided to give one of her books a read. I chose Free Agent and enjoyed it a great deal, so I bought Inside Heat since it is the first book in the Mustangs Baseball series. I thoroughly enjoy it.
Pediatric nurse, Megan Long will go to any lengths for her patient. The boy’s hero is Jeff Holder, the relief pitcher for the Mustangs and known as “The Terminator.” She attends a game to get his autograph for her patient. All does not go as planned because when she reads what he signs on the program would not be something she could give to Christopher, her young friend.
When Jeff Holder meets Megan’s brown-eyed gaze, he is immediately attracted to her, so when he signs her program, he asks her to meet him at a restaurant after the game. He hopes she will take him up on his offer.
When Megan arrives at the restaurant, she is expecting to meet an igotistical, arrogant man, but when she huffily explains why she wanted the autograph, Jeff immediately apologizes. He has her meet him at a sporting goods store down the street and has her pick up whatever she wants for her patient. He goes all out to make sure the little boy gets his autograph in a big way and even comes to the hospital the next day with his twin brother.
When the pair tells her what they want, Megan hesitates, but what red-blooded woman hasn’t dreamed of being with two hot guys? While sexually drawn to both men, she feels an immediate emotional connection with Jeff. Can the pair overcome the beginnings of their time together and find the love both of them crave, or will Jeff’s pig-headedness drive them apart?
Ms. Lee’s writing style is edgy with some grit thrown in. Her characters are interesting and the romance is fulfilling. I also found her love scenes extremely hot and very well-written with plenty of emotion along with the hot sex.
Megan Long is a great heroine. I liked her immediately because of her love and care of the children in her care. While she is not what I call a strong-willed female, she has a certain line she will not cross when it comes to her relationship with Jeff and Jason. While some of her decisions created a great deal of emotional pain for her, she was not deterred when she considered what was best for her. Her relationship is a bit complicated with Jeff and Jason to say the least.
While Jason Holder is part of the love triangle in the story, Jeff Holder is the hero. I had a bit of trouble with his character. At times, I wanted to hit him over the head for his stupidity. His internal battle was wrapped around jealousy that in my mind was unfounded. It was clear from the onset of the story that Megan was in love with him, not his brother.
This is a great read for sports fan because the details regarding the life of a pro ballplayer are excellent. It is obvious Ms. Lee has done her research. If you enjoy a well-written manage relationship with some interesting twist, then you will love Inside Heat. Happy reading!
I had to increase the speed to 1.25 because of how slow the narrator talked. I probably could have gone up 1.50 but didn't. I didn't like how the narrator did not make much effort to change the tone or quality of her voice to reflect each of the main characters. Many times I only knew who was talking b/c the writer indicated it. An effort was made with a few of the characters who only had one or two lines. I also didn't like that there was little tone change between speaking and internal thoughts. Another issue was that in parts with great emotion, it was read in the same flat tone as everything else. The story itself was not so outstanding, but I think the narrator brought it down even further. I will avoid this narrator again if I can help it.
Great Books Don't Promote Violence
Inside Heat reminded me a little of one of my favorite movie, Bull Durham - a fun, sexy and mature story about men adoring a woman. The sex scenes were frequent and graphic but not violent or degrading.
The threesome that developed between twin brothers and a nurse was interesting and entertaining. Jeff and Jason treated Megan with courtesy and respect, not rushing into a sexual relationship before becoming friends.
When Jeff and Megan fell in love and got married, Jason seemed to accept the situation and was happy for them. I figured his story would be next book and I was right.
FYI, in the next novel of this series, Jason becomes a controlling, violent jerk - skip that one unless you enjoy the glorification of physical and sexual abuse..
I love all genres of books. However, when I listen to audio books as I clean, garden, drive they are better with a lot of heat!
Sweet ménage. Pediatric nurse Megan takes the day off to go to the ball field to get an autograph for a sick little boy. He didn't bother to tell her that Jeff "The Terminator" Holder was smokin' hot and a twin. She waits with all the other anxious kids to get her autograph and when she does its accompanied by an invitation to dine. She can't give that to the sick little boy so she meets with Jeff to give him a piece of her mind and get another autograph for the little boy. Jeff is intrigued by the passionate nurse and makes it right. He goes one better when he and his twin Jason (also a ballplayer) show up at the hospital the next day and visit with the sick kids. Megan works too hard and hasn't had much time for a social life. Jeff does it for her. The twins are fascinated that Megan can always tell them apart. They proposition her with joining them both in bed and she figures it is better that way than doing without so she goes for it and the sex is fabulous. They guys push for long term and then things get sticky. Jealousy and lack of communication abound before the HEA. m/f/m
I have to say the choice of narrator was not good. Abigail Cooper had difficulty with the male and kids voices.
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
It was a good listen but in my opinion it did not stand out from the crowd. Even the sexual situations were mild.
No and unless it get's allot of good reviews this is probably my last. I'll stick to the proven authors in this genre who know how to write these type of storylines with some fire.
I liked the sound of her voice but not how she pronounced a few words. For example wanton should not be said as wonton.
I would of enjoyed better sexual content considering the topic of the book. I was expecting or hoping for something similar to Maya's Sweet Series as far as the romance goes.
I'd say this book would be good to buy on sale and save you credit for a better book.
Say something about yourself!
Note to writers, if you have to make up drama to make your book interesting at least make it up in a plausible way so that your own characters don't have to say yeah I dont understand why I did that I think I was insane.... Ugh!
Megan is a pediatric nurse who is trying to fulfill the wish of a dying child. The child idolizes the closing pitcher of the local ML Baseball team....so she tries for an autograph and what she gets is a date. Once she figures out that Jeff is serious about dating her she finds out he is also serious about inviting his twin brother into the mix....things get very hot from there.
To be honest I really did like this book, even with the made up drama. But I do feel that the made up drama went on way too long and if they had cut maybe an hour out of this book it would've been a lot better. All in all I will read the next one but if the crazy made up drama repeats then I will be done with this author. On a positive note, the narrator successfully did both male and female voices, even if she was what I call a slow reader, so THAT was good!
