    Game Plan by Karla Doyle
    I had forgotten how much I loved baseball till I read this story!
    How come most players seem to be so hot?
    Well I can tell you one thing, Andie sure didn't know what the hell she was getting herself into. Damn she is one lucky woman. Karla proves in this book that age is only a number.

    When I read the synopsis I automatically think novella. For some reason, I just didn't see how the book could have that much interesting story to it... but I was wrong. I was entertained the entire time, flipping as fast as I could to try and finish the book before bed.

    Andie has been divorced for 2 years and is looking to get back into the dating world. She isn't looking for anything too serious since she just came out of a marriage from hell but she is looking to have a little fun. What she isn't expecting is to find a young man who is as interested in her as she is in him. However, when they start seeing each other more and more, she starts to become incredibly self conscious of her age. Mason refuses to tell her his age, saying that it doesn't matter but she can't help to think how odd of a pair they make.

    Mason was a fun character to read. When he sets his mind to something, he gets it. Like meeting Andie for instance. When he is warming up for a baseball game he notices her cheering for a team on one of the other diamonds. So what does he do? He tosses a ball at her which was supposed to only roll up to her, not whack her in the ankle. Even though his move wasn't smooth, he got what he wanted, a date with Andie.

    I liked the connection between these two characters and the way the author wrote them. At no point did I feel like things were rushed. I thought it was perfectly normal for a woman to question a relationship with a younger man. After all she was married and had a kid when he was in high school. However, I did agree with Mason, that even though there was a decent age gap, they were old enough that it wasn't creepy. Now if she were 60 and he 25... then I'd be a little creeped out. The only thing I wasn't on board with was the ending. I felt like the obsessive controlling ex-husband gave up way too easily. He had been holding out hope that Andie would come back for 2 years... 2 years! He called her his wife when addressing Mason but he all of a sudden see's how wrong he was and apologizes for his ways and backs off. I just felt like maybe the author started to run out of time in her story and quickly threw that in at the end. Especially considering all the fuss he created over Andie. Regardless of that little bit, I really enjoyed this story. If you are looking a good smutty book with a good story to boot, than you've got to pick up Game Plan. I cannot wait to read more from this author.

    Having written a cougar romance, I was eager to read another author’s take on the subgenre. Karla Doyle knocked it out of the ballpark in Game Plan, her debut novel.

    Andie meets Mason when he hits her with a baseball so he’ll have an excuse to introduce himself. A mom with responsibilities who’s just freed herself from a bad marriage, Andie is more than willing to engage in a romp between the sheets, but forever-after isn’t part of her new game plan – especially not with a man ten years younger. Mason, however, has other ideas.

    Game Plan has a nice story line, witty dialog and hot, realistic sex scenes. I enjoyed the humor, which frequently made me laugh out loud. Karla Doyle writes well and with a light touch, making this story a pleasure to read. It’s five stars all around, but the exceptional dialog and smooth sex scenes especially stand out.
