Making it to the Major Leagues is all rookie ballplayer, Rob Lee, has ever dreamed of. But now, he's a little overwhelmed with his new celebrity status. Everyone wants a piece of the new heavy hitter for the Indianapolis Bobcats. Still, he's worked hard for it, and he doesn't have many regrets. Although there is one...
If journalist Heidi Wong wants to keep her job, she needs to come up with a story—fast! That's why she tells her boss that she knows the Bobcat's reclusive new slugger, Rob Lee. And she does...in the Biblical sense. During Spring Break three years ago, she and Rob shared a torrid night on the beach. And she's wanted him again ever since.
But everyone knows reporters and athletes don't mix. Rob's contract doesn't allow him to talk to the press, and her job depends on it. Which is driving them both just a little crazy…

I really thought i was going to really love this one, being a huge fan of sports romance.
I don’t even know how to explain what’s wrong with it. I think it lacks substance and the characters are bland.

Here’s the short version: a future baseball player meets a future journalist during spring break, they have hot sex, he leaves her because he has an important game in 2 days. Three years later, he’s a baseball sensation and she’s trying to save her career by writing a story on him. During those 3 years, she cyberstalked him and he says he always thought of her. 
Once they meet again, there’s that struggle between “you can’t interview me, can’t write about me” and “i need to, because i have to keep my job and pay rent”, they have sex a couple more times (though i can’t seem to define their relationship) and that’s it. 😐

I didn’t understand why wasn’t he allowed to be interviewed, I didn’t understand Nico…
I can’t describe the characters. I don’t have anything to say about them. Did this ever happen to you? How can you read a book and be left with nothing? No opinion? 
Maybe it’s just me….

Oh, there was one thing i loved. During one sex scene, she taught him something about Tantra, about breathing together and becoming one. That was pretty cool and it was the first time I read about something like that.

In the end, I would highly recommend you to read the book yourself and form your own opinion about it, don’t trust my judgement. 🙂
