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?

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.

The baseball player and the aspiring Broadway star

Jake is making a cross country road trip after taking delivery of his new luxury car when he happens upon a young woman in need of assistance. Kate is trying to get to NYC for a Broadway audition when she falls upon hard times. This is an enjoyable story about their adventure on the road and where it leads.
