Katie Rose’s Boys of Summer series returns for a delicious double-header—with the story of total opposites who are drawn to each other like moths to a flame.
Nikki Case is no fan of baseball. Her ex gambled away a fortune on the sport, and now her PR firm has tasked her with cleaning up the league’s most notorious bad boys. The New Jersey Sonics are known for wild womanizing and booze-fueled brawls, so Nikki expects the worst. Her first stop in the battle to win hearts and minds is star hitter Jake Baldwin—a legendary ladies man so smokin’ he threatens to melt her tough-girl armor.
Although his teammates prank her without mercy, Jake admires the way Nikki gives as good as she gets. She may be the queen of frost, but there’s kindling beneath those sultry curves—and he’s just the man to ignite it. But when a PR nightmare lands the Sonics in headlines across the country, Nikki is ready to walk. Only then does Jake realize how important she is to the Sonics’ success—and that winning the love of a good woman is no game.
Awhile back I read Bring on the Heat, the first book in Katie Rose’s “Boys of Summer” series. When I saw book two on Netgalley, I couldn’t wait to start reading!
Nikki is your typical jaded female lead. (In fact, it took me awhile to like her – but eventually? She won me over!) But Jake? I LOVED HIM!! He’s got an edge to him, but it’s obvious enough he’s a good guy at heart.
The intrigue between Nikki and Jake is quick, but they fall in love slowly! And I love it! (Although I have to admit? My favorite part of this one was the pranks the guys play! Those had me laughing out loud!) And the way Nikki saves the day (in terms of PR) on more than one occasion? Was absolutely phenomenal!
Katie Rose is still pretty new on my radar, but I can’t wait to read more from her in the future!
