Publisher's Summary

An off-season adventure, driving his expensive, new car from L.A. to New York, got Jake Lawrence's motor running. Free from his snooty, Park Avenue girlfriend, the third baseman hit the highway, ready for anything. Or so he thought.
Kate MacKenzie, aspiring musical theater star, sneaked out of her motel room, after her mother had gambled away all the young woman's money. In the middle of nowhere with less than four dollars to her name, the plucky actress planned to waitress her way to New York for a Broadway audition. All she needed was a job that paid enough for bus fare.
Saving the beauty from a beating by the motel manager, Jake offers Kate a ride all the way to Manhattan. Leery of offers from men, Kate had no choice but to accept. She vowed to preserve her dignity, and keep the sexy slugger at arm's length. Mutual attraction couldn't derail the pair from their goals. Kate's dream of making it on Broadway, collided with Jake's of making it to the World Series. Will their road trip lead to love? Or to a lonely existence of separation, and insecurity?

Fun Sport Romance

I really enjoyed listening to this book. I had read a couple of the others, but this is the first audio book I listened to from this series. The main characters were so fun and interesting to follow their ups and downs to the HEA. Jake was the sweetest guy I have read in a long time, always caring for others. The writing was spot on, flowing well from one scene to the next. The narration was ok, but I would have preferred a younger voice and a better female voice. I am looking forward to more from this author. I volunteered to listen to this recording and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Jake and Kate

Jake, third baseman for the Nighthawks, was taking his new car from California to New York when he rescued Kate, an aspiring actress trying to get to New York. He offers to take her when he finds out she's broke. Along the way, they find they are attracted to each other and eventually fall in love. There are some ups and downs with the baseball team travelling and then with Kate getting an acting job with the Broadway road show. They have to figure out how to work out all these problems. I really enjoyed Jean Joachim's writing and Jim Robert's narration. I can't wait for another installment in this baseball series. I did receive a free copy in exchange for my honest review.
