ARC Read: I really enjoyed this second book. I think what I loved the most about this story is it wasn't totally focused on baseball (although it's my favorite sport). Oh and yummy hot scenes too! A definite recommended read.

Thrown by Love is the second book in the Heart of the Games series and is just as good as the first. I really like Ms. Aares writing voice so I’m truly enjoying this series. It had me laughing out loud quite often. I recommend this series to anyone who loves a good romance that involves sports.  Professor Chloe McNalley loves teaching the physics class at the college, but her life is about to change drastically. She has just inherited the professional baseball team that her father owned and loved and needs to put teaching behind her for a while until she decides what she wants to do with the team. She’s grown up on the game, but can she give the team everything that it needs from an owner? And what should she do about the hot pitcher that she now owns?  Pitcher Scotty Donovan has just been traded to the team that is now owned by the one woman that he could actually have a relationship with. They both love the game and share a passion for the universe, but there is no way that a player could date the woman who writes his pay check. It is so hard to walk away from someone that you share so much with that they decide to hide their relationship until a package is delivered to Chloe proving they were not as careful as they thought. Can they find a way to outmaneuver the blackmailer and be together without causing a scandal? Or will they lose the one person that will make their lives complete?  I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Reviewed by Julie for Read Your Writes Book Reviews This was a very good book. I'm not a big baseball fan but Thrown by Love makes me want to become a huge fan. Chloe McNalley inherits her father's baseball team, the San Jose Sabers, after he passes away. Chloe ends up falling in love with a player that her father purchased from the Giants named Scotty Donovan. They have a lot in common and find it very difficult to stay away from each other and stop their ever increasing attraction. Their story takes you on a wonderful roller coaster ride that you will want to keep repeating. It's a great love story for both Chloe and Scotty as well as baseball. Source: Author

Another awesome book in the Heart of the Game Series! The characters and the story were fantastic. Just as with the first book, I was immediately drawn into the story and couldn’t put it down. There are obstacles Scotty and Chloe have to overcome, some mystery/suspense, and of course love. I loved Scotty and Chloe. I’m a huge fan of science and astronomy so it was fun to read what the characters had to say on the subjects. It also doesn’t hurt that Scotty is a hot baseball play who is charming, sweet, and can dance. Not only do these two have to work on things between themselves but they also have to handle the outside problems. Both are strong people and I loved their personalities. They were easy to root for and I was eager to read more to see if they got their happily ever after. The story line was interesting and kept me glued to my tablet, eager to see how everything would play out. I love it when I can see how previous books’ characters are doing so I really liked how we got to see bits of Alex and Jackie (characters from book 1). This was a great book and I can’t wait to read book 3! 5 out of 5 stars!!

Just in time for spring training baseball the second book of the "Heart of the Game Series" is available. I love spin off series because we get to learn a little bit about the characters we fell in love with in book one. Alex and Jackie are doing well and helping our next love story along. Chloe McNalley meets Scotty Donavan at a charity event. They have an instant attraction and a very passionate kiss. They keep running into each other and they find they have a lot in common.  They both love baseball. Scotty is a pitcher for the San Francisco Giants and Chloe's dad owns the San Jose baseball team. Chloe's a professor of physics and they both love Cosmology.  That’s where the similarities end. Chloe is from big money and Scotty is from a small town in Nebraska who’s made it to the big league. When Chloe’s dad passes away he gives her the team. She knows plenty about baseball and wants to keep her dad's dreams alive. Scotty was traded to her team, one of the last things her father did before he died. That puts a major hinder on their promising romance. Owner and player dating would not look good but they can't seem to stay away from each other. A blackmailer who catches wind of Chloe and Scotty’s relationship forces her hand to make some hard decisions.  The question that keeps you reading to the end is will their love survive?  Pamela writes another hot, passionate love story about a wealthy, intelligent woman who loves her career and how a sexy baseball player comes in and steals her heart away.  Scotty’s small town family makes him even more attractive and you can’t help fall in love with them all. Even though Chloe and Scotty are from two very different worlds you cheer for them to find the happiness they deserve. This is a great read as we get ready for baseball season to start. Play ball! (And get reading)
