I am enjoying the series , but I found Cara a little annoying and her "secret " dragged on a little too long for me . Otherwise it was pretty good .

** Received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review. ** Chapter 2 - I'm intrigued.  This is the first book that's had me raising an eyebrow and questioning where this is going.  I'm not seeing how their two lives mash together like I did with the others... Very intrigued! Completed -  This book seemed to take me a lot longer than the rest, I don't know why though. I didn't feel the connection as much as I did do with the other books but I still really liked, I missed the quirky character though... but we got cuteness, so it's swings and roundabouts. Cara is a simple girl in a small town where everyone helps each other. They grow their own food and fund their own support system.  She isn't looking for love but is determined to keep her past life at bay and forever run from it. That is until Ryan Rea turns up in the small town that has little money, driving a Bugatti. A perk for playing for the Giants. Ryan tries to squeeze through the cracks in the wall that Cara has built, hoping that she'll let him in her life, realizing that this is the type of woman he wants. A simple, not after money, no motives or scheming unlike the women in his past who tried to destroy him. Only Cara is living one huge lie. Although she's not lied to hurt other people she winds up hurting everyone close to her when they discover that she's worth billions. The greatest thing about this story though, is the foal... and the guest of honor!

Love on the Line is the fourth book in the Heart of the Game series and just as good as the previous books. This book can be read as a standalone, but I recommend reading them in order because most of the previous characters do show up in the other stories. The personalities of all of the characters are very refreshing, and I enjoyed how I was able to picture the scenes in my head as I was reading. This entire series is a must read if you like sports themed romance stories.  Cara Barrington only wanted to escape the world of the rich and famous and live a quiet life making friends because of who she is as an individual, not because of the money she has. She found that life when she moved to the small town of Albion Bay on the coast of California. No one here knows who she is, they have accepted her for herself, and she is trying to help the town in any way she can. But when a well-known baseball player moves to town and knocks Cara off her feet she may unravel everything she’s worked so hard to achieve in Albion.    Professional baseball player Ryan Rea is used to be in the public eye. He has no trouble charming the ladies and getting what he wants. He has been hurt by a few women so he is determined that he will protect his heart no matter what, but when he meets Cara he knows there is something about her that is different than any other woman he’s been with. He’s determined that he will do whatever he can to have her. Cara has recently inherited the family business from her grandfather, and now, she has to decide whether she wants go back to the life she left behind her, or stay in the small town that she’s grown to love. Her feelings for Ryan are very strong, but he doesn’t know anything about her real identity. She knows she has to tell everyone who she really is. But, how will Ryan and all the friends she’s made in the town accept the news that she has not only lied to them, but she’s also very rich? What will be the cost of finally admitting the truth? I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Ryan is "lip-smacking hot" but what really drew me into this story was Cara. Cara is hiding away in Albion Bay, California. As the local school bus driver everyone thinks she's just like them. And of course that's what Cara wants them to believe. When her Grandpa leaves her the family business she doesn't want the millions of dollars until her small town needs a medical center to save the lives of people she's come to care about. Baseball-star Ryan Rea moves into town and Cara is the kind of woman he's looking for, beautiful, simple,and honest. He's been burnt before by women who just want him for his money and fame. Cara doesn't want to start a relationship with Ryan but he pursues her with all his sexy Texas charm. Cara can't deny the attraction between them. As a relationship develops Cara struggles with telling Ryan the truth. She desperately wants to keep her identity hidden. She can't go back to a lifestyle where people only like her for her money and the family name. Cara knows Ryan wouldn't be using her but will he really like her when he finds out she isn't the small-town girl he thinks she is? Ryan is "lip-smacking hot" but what really drew me into this story was Cara. You read about these rich heiress and you think they got it made. Love on the Line gave me an inside look on what life is really like for them. Not knowing who your real friends are and seeing how money destroys so many lives is truly heart breaking. No wonder why Cara wanted to get away. Jackie & Alex from book one, Love Bats Last, get to help out since Jackie knows what it's like to escape the world of money. Pamela writes so beautifully. She makes me want to be friends with her characters. I look at the rich and famous differently now. Baseball players are real people with big hearts. Those beautiful heiress on all the tabloids are struggling to fit in. I don't know if it's true or not but the way Pamela portrays them makes it all believable.

I have read and reviewed every book (so far) in this wonderful series and I’ve yet to be disappointed. I’m one of those people who isn’t a fan of sports, especially baseball. However, I’ve found this story (as well as all the others in the series) easy to follow and very engaging. There’s always a lot more going on than the actual baseball in the story so I don’t feel overloaded. The characters are fun and the story drew me in from the fist word. Ryan and Cara have an instant connection. However, they both fight it. Cara definitely fights it more than Ryan does but you can tell from his past experiences that he’s cautious. They both have great personalities full of compassion and a need to give to others. They’re both searching for something, even if they don’t realize it. The whole town of Albion Bay is friendly and supportive and had a real sense of community. I loved seeing how they rallied together for any cause. They story lined flowed really well and Ryan and Cara transformed from great starting characters to fantastic people by the end. They endured heartache, confusion, and insecurities but also got to experience love, commitment, friendship, and support. This was a wonderful story and I look forward to the next one in the series. 5 out of 5 stars!

Cara is hiding secrets, but not the kind of secrets that would hurt or destroy anyone. She just wanted a fresh start, to live a quiet life. Ryan has been burned by lying women, and trust no woman. These two fall in love, but he still doesn't fully trust her. Yet, he sees the signs that she is not exactly who she is pretending or portraying. Cara tries hard to keep him at a distance, but he just won't have that. The town in which this story takes place is like so remote! yet it seems close enough to the city that they do go there often. Yet this small town has nothing, not even a doctor. That is the wierd part of the story. Its like this full "town" everyone knows everyone they all help each other, yet they have next to nothing there and only like 30 people? This is the 4th book in the series, but can be read as a stand-alone. The character from the other books are included in this book. I was given a copy to read and review by the author for her upcoming blog tour.
