Spring Training

 3 of 5 stars false 
 For baseball superstar Garrett Donovan, his contract with the New York Empire baseball team meant he’d finally have the means to secure a future for his family. He should focus on that…not on the sassy, beautiful Jessa Montgomery — or what she looks like naked. Getting involved with the daughter of the Empire’s owner would be career suicide. Jessa is a distraction he can’t afford.
Her father had warned her never to get involved with his athletes, so his request that she keep an eye on his new star player came straight out of left field. The last thing Jessa needs is another spoiled, egotistical ball player to deal with. But Garrett is none of those things. His no-nonsense attitude and smooth Southern charm make her blood burn and her knees weak. Giving into temptation, she is consumed by the pleasure she finds in Garrett’s arms.
Jessa wants to protect his career. Garrett won’t let anything get in the way of their passion.
A passion that could cost him everything.


****This book was part of a blog tour I was given a copy for my honest review****
Jessa has practically grown up on the baseball field; her father owns the New York Empires and has taught her everything she needs to know. Her father has a strict role of her not dating any of the players, so when he sends her to baby-sit his newest "golden boy" she expects to meet a spoiled, rich boy who she will constantly have to do damage control for. Instead she meets Garrett, Garrett is happy to finally be able to stop worrying and take care of his family and their future. Once he meets Jessa he wants her and while the two of them don't want to risk his career, they may find out that the passion that burns hot between them is more important than anything else. This book was good; the chemistry between the two main characters was off the charts hot. Jessa is a bit of a tomboy and I liked that, she has some insecurities from being the only child with no mom and thinking her father wished she was a boy I thought that was realistic and played into the conflict that happens latter in the book. Garrett is not the ladies’ man that people think he is he is a sweet man who is trying to do right by his family. I loved him, he had the most to lose and yet he really pushed for more knowing it could ruin him. The love scenes between the two of them were hot and plentiful about halfway through the book I started to get a bit bored with the book because as good as those scenes were, I wanted more. The author gave me the more that I needed not long after I started getting restless, the pace of the book picked up a bit and I was once again rooting for this couple to make it. Overall Spring Training is a good light read with plenty of spice and a group of adorable characters.
