For baseball superstar Garrett Donovan, his contract with the New York Empire baseball team meant he’d finally have the means to secure a future for his family. He should focus on that…not on the sassy, beautiful Jessa Montgomery — or what she looks like naked. Getting involved with the daughter of the Empire’s owner would be career suicide. Jessa is a distraction he can’t afford.
Her father had warned her never to get involved with his athletes, so his request that she keep an eye on his new star player came straight out of left field. The last thing Jessa needs is another spoiled, egotistical ball player to deal with. But Garrett is none of those things. His no-nonsense attitude and smooth Southern charm make her blood burn and her knees weak. Giving into temptation, she is consumed by the pleasure she finds in Garrett’s arms.
Jessa wants to protect his career. Garrett won’t let anything get in the way of their passion.
A passion that could cost him everything.
5 of 5 Spring Training
Spring Training was such a refreshing read for me because I love Baseball. I love to go to games and listen to all the noise and eating all the great foods and watching the kids enjoy themselves. Parker Kincade gave us such descriptive pictures of what was going on and how the players were I was thrown into this story and could not put it down so much so I had to buy the paperback to keep on my must re-read book shelf.
In Spring Training we get to meet Garrett Donovan and Jessa Montgomery. Gar as I call him is so loving and fun and such a southern gentleman. He has come to New York to be a part of the New York Empire Baseball Team. He is so excited to finally have a chance to play pro ball and be able to take care of his family. He is content in knowing his family will not want for anything. But Gar gets a curve ball when he comes face to face with the owners daughter Jessa.
Jessa is sassy and gorgeous and a no none sense girl who is kinda tomboyish because she is the only child of the empire teams owner. But Jessa is surprised by her fathers request that she watch one of the team players. Her first thought and I laughed so hard I was crying was that he was a spoiled athlete used to getting whatever he wanted when he wanted it and she thought oh hell she will have to keep him out of trouble. But when she meets Gar she is taken aback by his sincerity and genuine niceness that she has not seen the likes of.
Soon these two are spending time together and trying to fight off the feelings for one another but it does not work. Gar wants Jessa badly and Jessa wants Gar but she does not want to ruin his career in the process so she tries to stay away but Gar says no he wants her and he is willing to sacrifice everything to be with her. This is such a fun loving story that captivated me and I wanted more. I will re-read this story soon when I am having a bad day because it totally brightened up my day!
