Too Hot to Handle (The Boys of Summer #2)
Loveswept / January 27, 2015 / $2.99 digital
Nikki Case is no fan of baseball. Her ex gambled away a fortune on the sport, and now her PR firm has tasked her with cleaning up the league’s most notorious bad boys. The New Jersey Sonics are known for wild womanizing and booze-fueled brawls, so Nikki expects the worst. Her first stop in the battle to win hearts and minds is star hitter Jake Baldwin—a legendary ladies man so smokin’ he threatens to melt her tough-girl armor.
Although his teammates prank her without mercy, Jake admires the way Nikki gives as good as she gets. She may be the queen of frost, but there’s kindling beneath those sultry curves—and he’s just the man to ignite it. But when a PR nightmare lands the Sonics in headlines across the country, Nikki is ready to walk. Only then does Jake realize how important she is to the Sonics’ success—and that winning the love of a good woman is no game.
Baseball has always been more than a game to me. Going to a ballgame as an adult unlocks memories of a simpler time when the only thing that mattered was whether your team won that day. Is there anyone who can’t recite these famous lyrics?
Take me out to the ball game/Take me out with the crowd.
Buy me some peanuts and crackerjacks/I don't care if I never get back.
Let me root, root, root for the home team/If they don't win it's a shame.
Aahh…For it's one, two, three strikes you're out, at the old ball game!
