Publisher's Summary

Win at any cost. That's always been the mantra of sports agent Liz Darnell. When she carries things too far and risks losing her number-one client, baseball pro Gavin Riley, Liz realizes that she'll have to work extra innings to win him back. It might not be too much of a stretch. She's had a thing for this player's moves since she first laid eyes on him, and by the looks of it, he wants her just as bad.
Gavin's more than ready - especially when Liz is offering herself as part of the bargain. And as much of her as Gavin wants. For added thrills, he decides to throw a little curve ball Liz's way to see just how far she's truly willing to go to keep him as a client. But when love unexpectedly enters the playing field, neither Liz nor Gavin is ready for the biggest game-changer of them all.

First of all I give 5 stars to whoever is responsible for the cover picture - get a load of that...... oh and those...... not to mention the...... (right girls).

Anyway enough drooling back to the contents, I'm afraid at the start I was a bit disappointed in the first half of this book for the following reasons 1) there seemed to be a lot of 'motion' and not enough emotion or storyline..... a little conversation then sex, play Xbox then hot sex, coffee then sex, oh look at that view then.... yup you got it sex - well you get the picture. Don't get me wrong I like these types of books but there just wasn't a strong enough story to go with the repetitive sex for a lot of the book. 2) I had a little trouble at the start liking or connecting with either Liz or Gavin much as, from book 1, each of them seemed selfish and 3) there was plenty of dissing Mick from book 1 and not enough explaining or recapping just why he didn't like Liz or giving what his understandable reason was.

Having said that, as the story progressed we see more of Liz and Gavin's character traits being peeled away and their vulnerabilities and histories were revealed and the final half just sucked me right in - there was drama, conflict, arguments, heartache, passion and it was sweet, romantic and had a couple of lovely ahhhhh moments - and yes followed by sex of course.

Worth a credit? Well of course I'm going to say YES after all who can resist a steamy escape into these passion filled listens.

This book was smoking hot! Far better than book one and hopefully an indication of books to come. The narrator is awful, but that's the worst of any major negative aspects of the story.

Horrible narrator aside, there are some books that I can immediately listen to for a second round, and this story is in that category for me. It was funny, romantic, just enough drama to make my mouth gape open a few times, and super super sexy!
