Overview

It’s game on for love in the third novel of USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Bernard’s sexy, baseball-themed series.

Kilby Catfish left-fielder Trevor Stark is a ballpark legend. With his good looks, hitting records, and played-for-the-fans arrogance, Trevor makes women lose their minds and men lose their cool. But every time the major league team comes calling, Trevor purposely keeps himself in the tiny Texas town. Why is heart-tuggingly top secret. Until the team owner’s daughter comes to Kilby . . . trying everything up her sexy sleeve to make Trevor talk.

She should want nothing to do with the sinfully hot ballplayer her dad warned her to stay away from.

I loved Trevor Stark and learning his back story. Paige is perfect for him. Plenty of heat and humor.

I can't believe I paid $4.99 for 38 pages! This isn't a novel - it's a novella! Good series, but this short story ruined it!

Book 3 of Jennifer Bernard’s Love Between the Bases series is out and it’s a grand slam. Set in the fictional town of Kilby, Texas and starring the ne’er do well Kilby Catfish, it also introduces us to the romance of Paige and bad boy Trevor. After setting records with his play on the field and his playing of the field, Trevor should be headed to the major leagues but something always gets in the way. When he falls for the Catfish owner’s daughter, Trevor has a reason to stay in Kilby. But his past catches up to him and that may not be a safe idea anymore. This book has action, humor, mobsters, and of course, baseball going for it. The chemistry between Trevor and Paige is explosive from the beginning and I found myself rooting for them to get everything together for their much deserved HEA. The cameos of characters from earlier novels in the series are great and always funny. I loved that we found out more about Crush Taylor and get introduced to his romance, an upcoming installment in the series. DRIVE YOU WILD is the quintessential summer read but I’d love it any time of the year! Rating: 5 stars Heat level: 3.5

Trevor isn't the nicest guy on the team, but I knew there had to be a good reason for his behavior. There were some glimpses in earlier books, but Paige brought out the best in him. Paige is perfect for him, pushing him to be his best and accept help when he needs it. It was a bonus that she's Crush's daughter, it made it their relationship more challenging. While he did have a very good reason for most of his behavior, he was so stubborn about getting help with the problem that it became a bit frustrating for me. But he won me over with his caring ways. Trevor and Paige are both sweet and hot together. I've loved this series and I really hope that Crush gets him own book soon! 4.5 stars I received an ARC via Edelweiss for the purpose of an honest review. I was not compensated for this review, all conclusions are my own.

Drive You Wild is the third book in Jennifer Bernard’s Love Between the Bases series. It was another amazing read by this author. She definitely knows how to draw the reader into the storyline. I really enjoyed the opening scenes when Trevor and Paige first met. This was a great addition to the series and can be read as a standalone book. I highly recommend Drive You Wild. I received an advanced copy of Drive You Wild in exchange for a fair and honest.

4 1/2 STARS! In the third book in her Love Between the Bases series, Jennifer Bernard brings us the sweet story of bad boy Trevor Stark meeting his match! This series as a whole has great characters and she brings them to life in such a fun filled way that you devour the book quickly, smile often and leave feeling happy! Left-fielder for the Kilby Catfish, Trevor Stark loves the game! He is a no nonsense type of player who focuses on winning. He should be playing in the major league, but every time the San Diego Friars are just about to come calling, he sabotages himself. Paige Taylor returns to Kilby, Texas to drown her sorrows in something different for a change. She’s newly divorced and wants to reconnect with her dad, Catfish owner Crush Taylor. She doesn’t expect to make a connection with bad boy Trevor Stark right off the bat! When secrets are exposed, and danger is near, will Trevor be able to live up to his potential for the first time in his life instead of holding himself back for the benefit of others? Has Paige finally found the athlete of her dreams?

What a way to start out a 3rd book. With a gunman!!! Trevor Stark is being shot at by some crazed women's boyfriend. When he is rescued by a strange woman in a rental car. Guess who that woman is Paige Taylor, Crush Taylor's daughter. Trevor does not know this until he meets her in Crush's office the next day. Well guess what sparks are going to fly between these two. Trevor has secrets that he does not want anyone to find out. Paige want to get to know this Ice cold man. She thinks there is more to Trevor than his hard outer shell. With a name like Paige Mattingly Austin Taylor there will be no stopping her. I loved reading this book!!! It had me laughing, getting a little frustrated(because I get so into the book), and totally loving the characters.

Drive Me Wild is the third in Jennifer Bernard’s fabulous Kilby Catfish baseball novels. Bad-boy Trevor Stark finally meets his match, and we find out what’s been holding him back. This book is like a warm summer evening. It has the perfect level of heart, humor, and storytelling. It is like cracker jacks and beer at the ballpark – there is nothing else like it. Not to mention it contains one of my all-time favorite laugh-out-loud scenes. The snark between Paige and Trevor jumps off the page. Additionally, one of my favorite characters in this series has always been Crush Taylor. The enigmatic owner of the team has had a consistent presence throughout the books. This book gives us a chance to know more about him and figure out what makes him tick. The fact the Wades finally get their just due, doesn’t hurt either. If you haven’t started this series you can jump right in. However, it is summer and baseball season is in full swing. Why not start at the beginning and revel in the glory that is the Kilby Catfish from the beginning. Copy received from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

The mysterious Trevor Stark steps up to the plate in Jennifer Bernard’s 3rd book in her Love Between the Bases series, and Ms. Bernard hits a grand slam with this fantastic read about a very talented minor league ball player and the team owner’s daughter! Paige Mattingly Austin Taylor (was) Notswego is the eldest daughter of Kilby Catfish owner Crush Taylor. Her kind, nurturing nature led her into marriage and a life in Italy with her self-centered basketballer husband. Now divorced, she heads to her dad’s home in Kilby to regroup and figure out her life. No part of that plan included rescuing bad boy player Stark from a lunatic with a BB gun! Sparks fly as the chemistry between the two starts to churn. As the romance between Trevor and Paige heats up, Trevor’s past comes back in a tidal wave to wash over him. His aloof nature, bad boy persona and arrogance hid a jaw-dropping secret I totally did not guess! When his sister Nina comes to visit, she exposes not only her identity but leaving her and Trevor vulnerable to some very seriously “bad” bad guys. As the ice shell surrounding Trevor begins to melt thanks to Paige’s love and kindness, the dark cloud of the past begins to churn….. I loved, loved, loved this book! Sure, it had everything I love in contemporary romance: well-written, charming characters (and some not so charming….”Easy Brindisi” LOL), an engrossing plot and fabulous dialogue. I was truly blown away by the plot surrounding Trevor and Nina’s past; it was so well done and engrossing I read the book in one sitting!!! The perfect conclusion to the Love Between the Bases series! I received an ARC in exchange to an honest review.

A Home Run in more than one way!! Baseball and romance, how much better can it get! I have been waiting to read Trevor's story, known as the bad boy, but in this story you get the inner makings of Trevor and you too will fall in love with him. Opps, but Paige, the owner's daughter has first dibs on him. She has been warned to stay away from him, but how can she listen to her dad. This story is filled with romance, baseball and intrigue that will keep you turning the pages. This is the third book in the series, but can be read as a stand alone. I highly recommend this book!!

Every time I think I cannot possibly like another of Bernard's heroes more than the last, she proves me wrong. I love each book a little more than the last, if that is possible, and Drive You Wild is definitely my favorite. In past books, she has only shown the bad side of Trevor Stark, made him not too likeable. But when he gets his own book, watch out! We finally get to see his true colors and why he makes sure he has no friends. Enter the team owner's daughter, Paige Taylor. Fresh from a divorce from a professional basketball player, she has NO interest in a professional baseball player. Until she just cannot resist him. Protecting his baby sister, that we didn't know he had, is his only goal in life. The team owner, Crush, has made a bet, the Catfish will win this year or he'll sell the team. Of course, the awful Wades want nothing more than to get ownership of the Catfish. Trevor has a bet to win, a sister to protect from his past, and a girl that has wormed her way into his heart. Pick up this book and find out just how GOOD this bad boy of baseball really is!!

Drive You Wild, by Jennifer Bernard, is the third book in her Love Between the Bases series and Ms. Bernard hits this story out of the park. The hero is Trevor Stark, the phenom hitter for the Kilby Catfish, a triple A baseball team in Kilby, Texas. The heroine is Paige Mattingly Austin Taylor, the daughter of team owner Crush Taylor. Paige returns to Kilby after her divorce from a basketball player. She is at lost ends and does not know what to do. Crush decides that Paige will learn about the operations of owning a baseball team. Trevor is a complex character. There are secrets in his past which is why he seems to be constantly sabotaging his chance to get called up to the big league. Unfortunately, some of the secrets come out, causing him problems in Kilby. The chemistry and attraction between these two hits it out of the park. This was a fun and entertaining story with loveable characters that you want to support and cheer on hoping for that happy ending. I loved the way Ms. Bernard brought humor and sexy into this story as well as a little suspense. The characters were well written and complex. The story line was riveting and kept my attention to the very end. I genuinely enjoyed reading this book and had trouble putting this book down, reading it in one day. I highly recommend this book, and all others previously written by Jennifer Bernard to all readers and I cannot wait for the next story in this series. I received an ARC of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Another winner by Jennifer. As a huge baseball fan I got caught up in the excitement in this book. It was a good story with solid characters. Trevor gives off the bad boy vibe where is doesn't care about anything or anyone, but in reality there is more to him than meets the eye. Paige is coming back home after her life has imploded. She never counted on someone like Trevor entering her life. Paige brings out another side to Trevor and makes him crave what he can't have. There is even a suspense element to this book that keeps you on the edge of your seat to see how it plays out. This book sucked me right in and I didn't want it to end. I highly recommend this one!

"Drive You Wild" is written by Jennifer Bernard and is the 3rd book in her Love Between the Bases series. It can be read as a stand-alone book. It features Trevor Stark and Paige Taylor. Although I did not like Trevor in her previous books, I fell in love with him in this book. The author develops both the characters and the story in such a way that I just couldn’t put the book down. As with Jennifer’s other books, there are no dull or slow parts. This book contains it all-humor, romance, hot sexy guys, and a little danger. You will not be disappointed! I highly recommend this book!

Yay! A wonderful book by a great author! First exposed to the Love Between the Bases series by a collaboration with Erin Nicholas, I was really excited when I found out Trevor was going to get his own book. Drive You Wild by Jennifer Bernard had it all. Brooding baseball player, sassy heroine who happens to be the team owner's daughter, a little intrigue, and a LOT of hotness! An all around good read!

DRIVE YOU WILD by Jennifer Bernard will do just that drive you wild. This is book three in Jennifer Bernard's Love Between the Bases series and I hope not the final book! This is Trevor Stark and Paige's story. Fans of the series already knew there was more to Trevor than we'd seen and now we finally get to learn it all. I loved seeing more of Trevor's past and learning what makes him tick. Watching him go through finding Paige and all that follows was fun and page turning! I couldn't wait to see what was to come but at the same time I hated to think this might be the end of this series. I want to see MORE! I want to watch more of this team and see where they go. Fans of the series are sure to find another great read to add to their collection. If you are new to Jennifer Bernard or the Love Between the Bases series, don't worry you won't be lost. Yes there are recurring characters and some you'll be eager to know more about, but there is not a recurring story-line. There is however a recurring bad guy. Just so you know. I loved DRIVE YOU WILD. I can't say it's my favorite of the series only because I think ALL OF ME will hold that spot for a while, however they are all so great it's like picking your favorite child, impossible to do. I highly recommend DRIVE YOU WILD to all fans of great baseball romance with outstanding characters, an engaging story-line, and a setting that will have you wanting to visit. I want more!! This is a perfect summer read, enjoy it will on the beach, waiting at the ballpark, sitting by the pool, honestly anywhere!

Drive You Wild by Jennifer Bernard...I absolutely loved this book it was so good and held my attention, great character, hot baseball players, mystery/suspense and sizzling sex scenes. There was so much going on, but the story flows nicely, very well written. Oh boy, Trevor drove me wild, he is a sexy bad boy baseball player with a big heart, what more can you ask for. The chemistry between Trevor and Paige is off the charts, both have issues in their pasts, can they make it work. This is a must read, so you can find out. I received a complimentary book from publisher for an honest review.

It’s game on for love in the third novel of USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Bernard’s sexy, baseball-themed series. Kilby Catfish left-fielder Trevor Stark is a ballpark legend. With his good looks, hitting records, and played-for-the-fans arrogance, Trevor makes women lose their minds and men lose their cool. But every time the major league team comes calling, Trevor purposely keeps himself in the tiny Texas town. Why is heart-tuggingly top secret. Until the team owner’s daughter comes to Kilby . . . trying everything up her sexy sleeve to make Trevor talk. Divorced and disillusioned at twenty-four, Paige Mattingly Austin Taylor is suddenly starting fresh as an intern at Catfish Stadium. She should want nothing to do with the sinfully hot ballplayer her dad warned her to stay away from. But when she discovers what Trevor is hiding from everyone, she realizes there’s much more to him than his face and multi-million-dollar arm. There’s a heart she seriously hopes to win. Review: This was such a fun and sexy read! In this book we finally get to see what Trevor is really like and what is hiding behind his cool exterior and bad boy ways. I loved to see that there were so many layers to Trevor and he really becomes so likable and a real leading man. Paige is quirky and fun, with just heart and toughness to stand up to all the guys. I love the dialogue between Trevor and Paige they are witty and sarcastic. Loved the scene where they meet, it is just great and was so fun to read. Of course they have chemistry off the charts, though Trevor fights it. Paige even though she just went through a divorce is much more willing to give romance another try. She wears him down though, and when they are intimate there are some good sexy times with a little kink thrown in. All the side characters make an appearance, because you can't have a baseball story without the other players and it fun to read about them. Ms. Bernard is one of my go to Authors. I know I can count on her to write an interesting story and characters that I know I can loose myself in for a few hours. This story is no exception! I highly recommend this book and her others if you want a great story, excellently written. 4.5Stars *I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.*

What an awesome addition to this series! It has just the right amount of baseball, romance, and angst to make a great story. Trevor Stark has been with the Kilby Catfish for what seems like forever. Somebody with his talent and drive should have gotten the call long ago but each time it seems to be near, something will happen that makes the big league teams back away. It's almost like he doesn't want to make it! Paige is the new intern with the Catfish and just happens to be the owners daughter. She's been warned to stay away from Trevor and really considering her past she should be running far far away, but there is just something about him that draws her to him. She's determined to find out his secrets and possibly win his heart. A great read that should be on everyone's must read list. I highly recommend it.

Drive You Wild is the third full-length novel and the fourth and latest release in bestselling author Jennifer Bernard's baseball romance series, Love Between the Bases. Trevor Stark has been a part of the series from the first book and I'm glad that he finally gets to tell his story here, and it's not your usual wounded baseball player whose life is set to rights when he meets the girl of his dreams. Trevor's gift for playing baseball is the kind that major leaguers are made of, but he's not desperately trying to get called up by the San Diego Friars. As a matter of fact, he's quite fine with simply being known as the left fielder for Triple A team Kilby Catfish. He has his reasons, but he isn't ready to share them with anyone...until the team owner's daughter shows up and starts breaking down the formerly strong defenses around his heart. Paige Taylor can't quite believe that she's only twenty-four and is already divorced. She married out of love and stood by her man, sharing his dreams of an NBA career. That all fell apart while he was playing in Italy, and now Paige has returned to Kilby, Texas to start over. Working for her father and doing volunteer work seem like the perfect prescription to get over her broken heart. But a far better distraction comes in the form of the man who plays for her father. She's warned away from Trevor Stark, but there's so much more to the man than his reputation for being a ladies' man and an awesome ballplayer. She's seen him volunteering his time with youth groups and he's not as detached as he makes himself appear to be. Will learning the truth about the man she's falling for end up costing both of them a possible future? I really enjoyed this newest addition to the Love Between the Bases series. It had new elements that I don't recall seeing in the first three books, so it felt like it raised the bar with Trevor and Paige's story. There's a bit of mystery and suspense but that lighthearted humor and romance is still in full force, making for a great overall read. Trevor is such a multi-layered main character and if you're familiar with the series, you'll be glad to find out what kind of back story he brings to the table and that he's much more than he may seem. I also liked how Paige wasn't some pampered princess waiting for the world to do her bidding. She's nice and sweet but also sassy and knows how to put the men in her life in their place. I loved these two together and I can honestly say that Drive You Wild is my favorite in the series so far. 4.5 stars. ♥

"Drive You Wild" is the 3rd installment in Jennifer Bernard's Love Between The Bases series and does not disappoint! It can be read as a stand alone novel but treat yourself to the entire series. It infuses humor, romance, and, best of all, HOT ATHLETES! This book follows the story of Trevor Stark, the bad boy outfielder for the Kilby Catfish, and Paige Mattingly Austin Taylor! The story grabs you from the beginning and it is a great ride through the end. This series is well worth your time. I could go on and on about the hot chemistry between the characters, the interaction between the teammates which is so spot on to how it really is on a sports team, or the twists and turns of the story but I'm just going to highly recommend you take the leap and try this book (& series) out!

Trevor's reputation as the bad boy precedes him from the other books. I was very curious to see just how he was going to fall in love. It was very fitting that his heroine is Paige, the team owner's daughter. Trevor is an extremely talented ball player, but every time he's about to get called up to the majors, he does something to ruin his chances. I loved finding out the reason for his screw ups, and it made me love him even more. Paige has returned home, divorced and starting over at 24. She becomes an intern with the Catfish and realizes there is more to Trevor than what people see on the outside. She becomes determined to figure out his secrets. I loved this story and the road it took to get them to their HEA. I would highly recommend it to anyone.
