Publisher's Summary

Alicia Riley considers her job as a sports therapist for the St. Louis Rivers baseball team is a home run - until she becomes the primary therapist for star pitcher Garrett Scott. Out of the lineup with an injury, he's short-tempered, hard to handle, and every solid inch a man. Right now, the only demand he's making on Alicia is that she get him ready to pitch in time for opening day. Except the sexual chemistry between them is so charged, Alicia is tempted to oblige Garrett just about anything. But both their careers are at stake - one bad move and it's game over for both of them. Garrett also feels the hot sparks between them, and the way he figures it, what better therapy is there than sex? Now all he has to do is convince the woman with the power to make the call.

 I love me some men from the Play by Play Series!

Thrown by a Curve is the fifth book of Play-by-Play series by Jaci Burton.  This book is like the others in the series which always ends with a delicious HEA. A romance with steamy scenes and likeable characters. This story continues with the Riley family and focuses on Alicia "Gavin's cousin" and Garrett "hot baseball player". Alicia Riley is a physical therapist who is assigned to hot shot ball player Garrett Scott's shoulder recovery. Garrett is the typical star athlete... arrogant, confident, and extreme sexiness.This story was a pretty straight forward romance. There wasn't very much drama or conflict. I loved the pace the relationship took to progress. It was a slow gradually build from friendship to something more. I could still feel the chemistry between Alicia and Garrett from the very beginning. In fact, there were lots of sexual innuendos and flirtatious banter between them. The sex is postponed while the author focuses a lot on building the romance & chemistry between Garrett and Alicia. I will rate the book 3 stars, simply because it was good, fast and a easy listen. However, it was missing the typical intensity found in the other previous 4 books in the series. Keep in mind, it wasn't a bad book just not my favorite. I definitely look forward to listening to book 6 soon.
