Kelly Maxwell has finally landed her dream job as publicist for the San Francisco Blaze. But the team's newest member, handsome bad boy catcher Matt Scanlon, is refusing every interview. She's got to get him to open up before the season ends, or she may not be back next year. And after everything she overcame to achieve her dream, Kelly's not about to let that happen.
Matt Scanlon just wants to be left alone to rebuild his life and his career. After a year of masking the pain of a recent loss with hard partying and fast women, he finally hit rock bottom and was traded to a team he's loathed his entire life - a team with little to no chance at the post-season.
Butting heads is getting Kelly and Matt nowhere but annoyed, and with the team's schedule on the road, they can't avoid close quarters - or their surprising attraction to each other. As the season winds down, Matt finds his growing feelings for Kelly have brought his numbed emotions back to life. But when betrayal shatters their fragile trust, winning it all seems more impossible than ever.

It's all about romance in my library! I have a wonderful husband, children and my grandchildren they are my rock.
Yes, it was a cute story.
The connection between Max and Kelly. I love how Kelly was a ball player and had a dirty month - I love her character.
Her performance wasn't the best. I didn't like her man's voice. I pictured Max voice to be much lower and sexier. It was too high pitch for my liking.
No, I like the two parts.
This will be a cute movie to see on the big scene.
I enjoyed Packard's LOVE IN THE AFTERNOON and decided to give the next book in the series a try. The book stands alone very well, with great characters with complicated lives. Funny and well-paced, the book flies by. Packard's characters are easy to like. Pfitsch is the perfect narrator for this book, delivering a snappy performance that perfectly matches the book.
This is the second book in this series, though you don't really have to have read the first one to enjoy this one. I bought the first one in one of the surprise $4.95 library sales and when I got around to listening to it, I completely enjoyed it. This one is just as enjoyable with a completely different storyline. The storyline was believable and seemed real and I really liked the characters. It was nice to see some of the characters in the first book briefly. The narrator was good though I could hear her breathing and swallowing occasionally. She isn't one who I would go seek out other books read by her but I would definitely listen to her again.
Say something about yourself!
First let me say that this book is the SECOND BOOK in a series. The first book is called Love in the Afternoon.
I have been waiting for this book for more than 2 months and it was worth the wait! This book had "real" problems the characters dealt with, not fake ones or exaggerated problems. Nothing ticks me off more than when the "drama" in a book is based on a main character obsessing over something small and making it bigger than it is, this book had actual realistic problems and great characters.
There was a lot of tension in the book, the chemistry was off the charts and there were a few steamy scenes but the book was driven by the story of a lost soul, who hit rock bottom and somehow learned to live again, and lots of baseball! It was heartwarming and fun and I couldn't stop listening!
Wonderful listen, highly recommended!!!!
