The author did a great job in writing. It all flowed together perfectly and the sex was Hot Hot Hot. But OMG Tony had the patience of a saint. I dont understand how he could put up with Clara at time. Who more did he need to do? Jump in front of a bullet????? Almost stopped reading it because she was making me so sick with her continue self doubt and insecurities.
My hats off to Tony.

Yowza, it was HOT HOT HOT. But seriously, the heroine was ridiculous with constantly talking about how fat she is. GIVE IT UP. And needing validation through other men wanting her is pitifulWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Roz Lee’s BASES LOADED is an erotic, contemporary romance.
When Antonio Ramirez was a New York baseball player and Clare Kincaid was living in New York, attending Julliard, she watched Antonio’s baseball games as often as possible. Clare was attracted to Antonio and would often fantasize about him, although they had never met. Clare is now the organist for the Dallas Mustangs Baseball team and Antonio has just been traded to the Mustangs, as their new centerfielder. Antonio sees Clare at an auction they are both attending, and falls head over heels. Antonio introduces himself to Clare and she is thrilled, but unfortunately she has no self confidence. Clare can’t imagine why Antonio is attracted to her when he normally dates models and actresses. Clare is curvy and full figured and doesn’t realize how beautiful she is.
I liked Antonia, he is a nice guy, a hot baseball player and always trying to make Clare feel good about herself and let her know how he much he likes her. Antonio had a wild past and is finally ready to settle down once he sees Clare. However, I found it hard to believe Antonio could fall in love with Clare so quickly. It’s hard to believe he could have such strong feelings for her after one conversation.
I liked the idea of a handsome, rich baseball player falling in love with a normal, everyday women rather than a supermodel, but Clare’s whining got on my nerves. She constantly complained about feeling unattractive and didn’t understand why Antonio wanted to date her. Antonio is willing to do anything to convince her.
There are a lot of hot steamy scenes in BASES LOADED. Some of the scenes are between Antonio and Clare and some include other people joining them. BASES LOADED has a whole new meaning for me now!

Go, Team Clare!
4.5 stars. Clare's a curvy girl who's long had a crush from afar on NY baseball player Antonio Ramirez. Of course, he would never look her way - he's always being photographed with slender model-types, AND he plays for another team.
But when he accepts a long-term contract with the Dallas Mustangs - the team Clare's uncle manages, and for which she plays organ during the season - it turns out he's not so fond of toothpicks after all.
Tony WANTS Clare, and he's determined to sweep her off her feet, whatever it takes. He has a hard time convincing her that his interest is not just another cruel practical joke, as Clare has been thoroughly bullied and shamed by a local model-type, Jessica Roach (and she makes the reader want to stomp on her).
I had two personal peeves with this: 1) There's in a scene during a couples massage where Tony believes Clare's masseur is coming onto to her, and he turns semi-violent. Red flag; violent jealousy/possessiveness =/= sign of love/affection, and even though he goes through changes and learns to share, even, I didn't like it. 2) Ending with the engagement ring - they have NOT known each other long enough, IMO for it to be presented or accepted, especially with the massage incident.
But obviously I believed in these characters deeply enough to worry about their future happiness, and that doesn't happen for me in every book. I liked Clare, totally "got" her finding validation in playing Bases Loaded, and would be delighted to let Tony put his bat in my rack, anytime. Nice humorous touches, hot, hot sex, but it does involve more than these two, so if that's an issue for you, you may not enjoy this as much as I did. This is part of a series, but works well as a standalone. Highly recommend.
