THREE STRIKES AND HE’S OUT…
When baseball bad-boy Finn Castro raises one eyebrow too many, the Saints send him down to the minors. He’ll have to earn back his major-league dreams with the Sarasota Springs Preachers. Finn’s certainly never claimed to be a man of the cloth, and cleaning up his act isn’t going to be easy with stunning Eva Harlowe at the heart of the team’s administration…
UNTIL SHE THROWS A CURVEBALL
Eva knows having a crush on Finn Castro is about as sensible as wishing for an eighth day of the week, but seeing the gorgeously muscled player in person melts her resolve. If she’s planning to leave baseball at the end of the season, a hot fling could be a fantasy home run. But when no-strings sex begins to feel like a perfect partnership, will Finn and Eva choose the love of the game or real life together?
I am loathe to DNF books. It’s something that I do not do often, but when a story does not manage to capture my attention I cannot help but put it aside in favour of something that I can actually enjoy, especially now that my reading-time is limited!
Since I requested Playing Fast on Netgalley I obviously was intrigued by the plot, but after 43% of struggling through a frankly boring and same-old-same-old story-line where the characters’ background stories are far more interesting than the romance on which the novel centers, I had to throw in the towel.
