I usually shy away from books w/ BDSM (in fact, I've nvr read 50 Shades), but I loved the first book of this series (" Insde Heat") so much, that I had to see where Jason's story went. And man, am I glad I came along for the ride! The connection between these characters was so deep, that for me, the book had one of the most emotionally satisfying endings I've ever read.Was this review helpful?

50 Shades of Baseball
If you liked 50 Shades, you'll love this book.
This was a well-written and emotionally compelling book, with a wonderful dilemma for the hero and heroine, created by the inherent conflict between Jason's job as a MLB baseball player (though Carrie doesn't know his identity), and Carrington (or Carradine's?) job as a reporter (though Jason doesn't know HER day job) hot on the trail of the steroids abuse story.
I'm personally over the whole Master/spanking/flogging/nipple clamp thing, so for ME, scenes involving any of the above felt tedious, and I flipped through them to get to the good parts. But even for me there were enough hot sexy good parts to make it an excellent read, and plenty of funny parts, too. I loved that the author has Jason discuss his former girlfriend, who absolutely ADORED and could not put down a certain popular (but unnamed, in Going Deep) BDSM series, yet when she read aloud parts of it to him, and he indicated that *if* she wanted, he would be willing to do some of that with her, she called him a pervert and couldn't dump him fast enough. I suspect that this is true to life for many fans of said series - reading about it is one thing, actually DOING it - oh, hell no!
We get slices of happy BDSM couple Todd and Brooke (who have their own short story, Free Agent), and Jeff and Megan (from menage novel Inside Heat), but this book works well as a stand-alone without reading either of those (though you'll want to).
