And neither Tom nor Katie are sure they're ready to trust each other or risk their hearts for a second chance at happiness.Read The Winning Season and Catching Heat for more stories about the San Francisco Blaze.89,190 words
Alison Packards San Francisco Blaze series is one of my favorites, and as Baseball season comes to a close, I felt like I needed to read something to keep the feeling going a little longer!! (I am a hockey girl, and a Husker Football fan, but I grew up attending White Sox baseball games and have a special place in my heart for “America’s Sport”!!)
I have to admit, this second-chance romance is one of the best books I read this summer! While there moments I was so angry with Katie and Tom for how stubborn they both were? I loved this book!! I loved their romance, how they were slow to fall back in love – and how they were both stubborn and fighting their instincts!
But really, the jewel of this book? The side story with Trey Gentry had my attention. (And I suppose that means Trey’s book is coming up!! EDIT: Trey and Jade are her current work in progress!!!)
I usually struggle when the coaching staff gets their own book – even though many of them are has-been players! It just doesn’t have the same “action” that the players do! But?? I loved Tom, so I can look past that dislike for this AWESOME book!
If you’re a fan of sports-romance? I highly recommend Alison Packard’s San Francisco Blaze books!
