Blurb:

Besides her family, Lacey Robinson’s only other love is baseball. She’s on top of the

world when Arizona State University approaches her to discuss a scholarship. To play

for a college boys’ team is beyond what she has ever dreamed. Her fastball is

impeccable, her slider equally as good, and her curveball annihilates anyone who dares

to step in the batter’s box. But fate has its own way of throwing curveballs. When she

looses her mother and sister to a home invasion, baseball and her dreams die with

them. Tragedy has a way of seeping deep into her psyche, causing nightmares, panic

attacks and blackouts. Diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, her psychiatrist

recommends a change of scenery and picking up the things that she loved to do, and

for Lacey that is baseball.

After a move clear across the country, only two things matter to Lacey—overcome her

PTSD and make Kensington High’s baseball team. But trying out for the team comes

with complications—the captain, Aaron Seever, doesn’t want a girl on the team.

Adding to her new life, she never counted on meeting someone who wants her as badly

as Kade Maxwell. The tall, sexy and drool-worthy bad boy has a magical touch that

awakens her feminine side, and a kiss that slowly erases her nightmares. But getting

involved with him may be dangerous when Kade’s arch-nemesis returns to town to

settle a vendetta.

To complicate matters, her PTSD has taken a turn for the worse. She has to find a way

to push away the demons otherwise she may not have a chance at anything in life.
Excerpt:

He grinned with his infamous Maxwell smirk as he cupped my face.

I had barely caught my breath when his mouth was on me. I opened to him as his

tongue dipped inside, twining with mine. He tasted like forever. I wiggled against his

hardness, and he moaned. Abandoning my mouth, he trailed his lips along my jaw, my

ear, and my neck. He licked over my racing pulse while the heat from his hands was

scorching my back. His torment was too much, yet not enough. My clothes grew

constrictive. I wanted to feel his bare skin against mine.

As if he sensed my need, he lifted my sweater over my head, throwing it to the

floor. His eyes were seas of shimmering copper. The backs of his fingers ghosted up

and over my abs to land on the clasp of my bra. For perhaps one second he hesitated

before unsnapping it. When he did, I sucked in a breath, my nipples hardening. He

removed one strap then the other before it fell behind me.

“Beautiful,” he breathed, as he traced the outline of my breasts, teasing, but

never touching the sensitive peaks that ached for his magical fingers or even his mouth.

I pressed my hips into him, feeling his arousal. Desire swirled down my belly in a

slow, sinuous slide.

He groaned, deep and sensual. “Baby, tell me what you want.”

My body tingled. My brain went blank. “You.” All I wanted to do right now was feel

him and everything he had to offer.

His eyes widened with a savage intensity that frightened me, yet calmed me. He

pressed a kiss to my breast, gliding his warm mouth over my nipple before sucking on it.

I arched into him, rubbing against him. He moaned, giving my other breast the same

attention.

I fisted my hands in his sweater, tugging it up. He eased back, raising his arms. I

lifted his sweater and T-shirt over his head before tossing it aside. My gaze wandered

over him, drinking in every muscled inch of him from the line of light brown hair that

disappeared into his jeans, to the six-pack abs that sculpted his midsection, to the

tattoos on his chest. Pushing his fingers through my hair, he brushed his lips over mine.

“Are you sure, Lace?” His voice was barely audible.

Strong language. Sexual content. Intended for audiences 17 years and older.

5 STARS

This girl and boy have had such a hard time I believe they really needed one another to get through some of their issues. This author told a thoroughly good story. I loved how the author described all their problems in detail and let you feel some of what they were feeling. I really liked the brothers and their love for one another, also I am looking forward to reading more about them in the next book of the series. I also loved how the author integrated baseball in to the story because I too was the only girl on an all boy baseball team and had to deal with the boys not wanting me there. I wasn’t as good as this girl is but i held my own, this story had me reminiscing and I liked it.
