Library JournalLorelei Littleton thinks that major league baseball catcher Mark Cutter is just another overindulged, superrich ballplayer who cheated on his ex-wife and deserves a little payback. And she desperately needs the $100,000 his ex is going to pay her to finance her niece’s open heart surgery. But Mark’s ex is the cheating liar, and his past isn’t any more privileged than Lorelei’s. He just has major league talent that’s taken him to some very high places, like being the star of Denver’s baseball team. Yet when Mark meets Lorelei as she seduces and robs him, he discovers that he wants something real, and Lorelei, along with whatever reasons she is hiding for her deception, just might be it.
Verdict This sports romance is based on a series of classic “misunderstandammits” because neither party trusts the other—and with good reason. But they have seriously hot chemistry from their very first meeting, and it keeps this enemies-into-friends story cooking as they slowly reveal their vulnerabilities. Just in time for baseball season; if you like the “boys of summer,” you’ll root for these two finally to make it “home.”—Marlene Harris, Seattle P.L.
