    An out of the park grand slam home-run hit from cover-to-cover!

    When you make your work your life and don't allow anything inside to interfere with your goals what happens, basically nothing because life isn't work. Pace Martin has had baseball pumping through his veins for so long he doesn't know how to do anything else was eat, sleep and breathe baseball. The games he has won as the star pitcher for his expansion baseball team or lost due to an off day. When Pace and his single-minded goals meet reporter Holly Hutchins the official game off the field becomes one of control and conquer.

    Holly is dedicated to her career as well as has been assigned the job of reporting on Pace, his team and unearth any secrets along the way. What Holly too quickly discovers is that there are allot of secrets but one truth, this is a team with heart of it in the form of their pitcher, Pace. He keeps the group motivated and moving toward winning a pennant and hopefully the World Series and carries the responsibility right on his shoulder, which is a problem since he may have an injury. Pace will never admit to any pain and knows the lessons his father taught him about staying focused and never losing control are imperative. But can Pace keep this injury to himself or will Holly and her cute investigative nose figure out what is going on?

    Pace wants to trust Holly but when facts about the team that no one should know come to light, the feelings he has for her make him question what her real purpose in his life is? Yet the more time Pace spends with her and realizes that there is a life outside baseball with something beautiful happening between him and Holly he starts to trust. This is imperative because he has fallen in a love reveals itself to be true and everlasting.

    Pace and Holly weather the scandal, injuries and time tested saying of baseball by Mike Schmidt "Any time you think you have the game conquered the game will turn around and punch you right in the nose". Life and love take you by surprise so keep your head in the game!

    I love baseball and Jill Shalvis has captured the true essence of how important this sport is to those that play it and keeps the storyline between Holly and Pace realistic but romantic. Ms. Shalvis knows how to write and each book proves that to her readers.

    A grand slam of a book

    Double Play by Jill Shalvis is a perfect summertime read of steamy romance and the love of Americas favorite pastime.

    Pace Martin has a charmed life as the ace pitcher for the Santa Barbara Pacific Heat. Baseball has been his whole life but now he may have a season ending injury. To make matters even worse the PR dept. saddles him with a nosy reporter. Pace thinks he can keep Holly Hutchins under control but she is slowly getting under his skin.

    Holly Hutchins has a weekly blog that she does stories of national interest. She gets talked into doing one on the baseball team in town. Holly is so out of her comfort zone on this subject but she is willing to learn. Getting ace pitcher Pace Martin to set down for an interview is becoming a challenge. Holly's initial conception of Pace changes with every time she is with him.

    Pace and Holly relationship starts with saucy flirting and grows to an all out scorching passion. But someone is leaking secrets to the press and this puts a strain on all involved. Can Holly convince Pace and his teammates that she is not the person that is doing this?

    Double Play is the absolute best book to celebrate the boys of summer. Jill Shalvis blends the action on the field with the action off the field seamlessly. She makes you feel like you are right there with the players on the field. The chemistry between Holly and Pace is tantalizing and leaps off every page. Jill Shalvis delivers another winner that every romance reader must have.

    the world of baseball is the background for this series. this particular story is about a writer, holly, and a star pitcher, pace. she needs a story, and he doesn't want to give it. this writer has a way with words and she can put them together so you feel you are in the story. the characters are so well presented that you feel you know them personally. the romance is tastefully written, and you just want to cheer them on. there is an attractrion but both have issues to be resolved, and jill shalvis does it with heart. this is a story you won't want to miss!!

    Amazing##

    Jill comes through again. Her writing is always entertaining. The lead characters had great chemistry although i would have liked it better if she didn't constantly describe the heroine as average in shapeless clothes. Call me shallow, but i like pretty people when escaping reality. Can't wait to read wade's story
