KIRKUS REVIEW

Maggie Jameson is devastated when her father sells his major league baseball team and is shocked when she and the new owner fall for each other.

All of her life, Maggie has been the New York Saints’ biggest fan and unofficial mascot. As daughter of the team’s owner, she practically grew up on the field and couldn’t wait for the day when she would help her father run the team. So when he's forced to sell for financial reasons, and fails to tell her until it’s a done deal, Maggie is furious and feels betrayed. Alex Winters, the new owner, claims to have the best interests of the Saints at heart, and he convinces Maggie he needs her help to rally the fans behind the new management—especially since the sale still needs the approval of the other league owners. Despite her resentment, Maggie puts on a good face for the Saints, and as Maggie and Alex muster support for the team and the sale, they also give in to their blazing attraction. Things begin to come apart though when Texas oilman Will Sutter makes a rival bid for the team, offering Maggie the CEO job if he succeeds. With the team’s future hanging in the balance, Maggie and Alex have to navigate tricky professional choices that also impact their personal relationship. For the first time in his life, Alex is looking at spending his life with a woman, if only he can convince her that his interest is sincere and he’s on her team—no matter what. Sexy, well-written, layered and engaging.

Emotional intensity and dynamic conflict combined with a lively setting make this baseball-themed romance a hit.
