    Rating 4.5 When Garrett Donovan landed a contract with the New

    Rating 4.5

    When Garrett Donovan landed a contract with the New York Empire baseball team - it was not just a dream come true but it’s a means of security for the future of the family he left in Mississippi. Being the only male left in the family, their future is his burden to bear. He didn’t have time to date, get drunk, and have sex. He focused himself on practices and playing on the field – until the beautiful Jessa Montgomery decided to grace their Spring Training. She’s sexy, hot, love the game and fun to be with – totally lethal combination for him. He knew he should not get involve with her. He was just going to get himself into trouble.

    Being the only child and daughter of the Empire’s owner was not a piece of cake for Jessa Montgomery. At a young age, instead of having parties and dating boys, she spent it with her father on the stadium learning about baseball. Although she spent her days with a lot of men, her father had warned her to never get involved with his players. So when he requested her to babysit his new star player, she was surprised. It was a waste of her time for her to guard another spoiled, egotistical ball player when she has a lot on her plate. But Garrett proved to be different: he’s a responsible guy who’s sexy as hell, cares about his family and is great in bed. Jessa knew being with her would cause him trouble, she wants nothing but protect his career for the people he loved the most. Garret, on the other hand, wants Jessa – whatever it takes, even if it would cost him his career. 

    Their relationship was a whirlwind, roller-coaster affair that is set to crash once her father or anyone knew what they were doing. BUT!!! I adore the two characters – Garrett for being a responsible son and someone who was willing to fight and take the risk for love and Jessa for trying to do what she thought was best for Garrett. I just knew what her father was up to – it wasn’t nice; nevertheless, they found each other. 

    Spring Training is a short read. Although their relationship had my head aches because of the constant on-off status (they couldn’t seem to decide if what they were doing is right or not), I finished it in one sitting and I was craving for more baseball hottie! If you want to read something light, short, sweet and steamy, with hot baseball players and forbidden romance – Spring Training might be the right one for you!

    My Thoughts:
    This book was provided by the author for an honest review.

    Let me begin my review by saying that I was pleasantly surprised while reading this story. I have read a few "sports" romances that were a bit on the dull and technical side. Technical + romance = DNF for me. I think that authors struggle with making the story authentic so they fill it with a lot of sports-related jargon that I frankly have no interest in.

    Well, Ms. Kincade did not disappoint with this sexy sports tale. The story was witty and fresh and most importantly, for me, not boring at all. Oh, quite the contrary. This story was very sexy! I had to stop and fan my face a couple of times. It was not heavily laden with sports talk but focused more on the romance between the male and female protagonist. Yay! Win!

    I absolutely loved Jessa and Garrett. Jessa was sassy and Garrett was tempting and their passion burned bright and fast in a way that was completely palatable to the reader.

    Jessa Montgomery was the daughter of TJ Montgomery, owner of the New York Empire baseball team. As a child with a deceased mother, Jessa became her father's shadow and lived, slept, and ate baseball. As an adult, she worked for her father behind the scenes ensuring that this team functioned like clockwork -- almost secreting herself from the world in the process.

    After recruiting a rookie player with a significant high-dollar value, TJ asked Jessa to shadow him to make sure that he stayed out of trouble during spring training. Little did Jessa know that that one mandate from her father would change her life forever. Garrett Donovan was a sexy as sin baseball player who instantly set Jessa on fire with his gaze. Jessa is shocked by her utterly visceral reaction to the man. But, egos, on both sides, get in the way and their first meeting ends in a verbal sparring match. Can you say foreplay? ... LOL Problem: Jessa's father has instilled in her that she should never get involved with any of this players. Well, she tried...she really did try........for like a whole two seconds. However, lust and desire became all consuming between Jessa and Garrett and love grows out of passion that was never meant to be.

    Ms. Kincade did a magnificent job delivering a story that was full of sweet and sexy moments...a lot of sexy moments. Romance enthusiasts will absolutely enjoy this story. But fair warning, keep a fan and a cool drink of water handy. This one is a scorcher.
