Oliver Dempsey, pitcher for a Melbourne baseball club, loves the women, and they love him…
But he keeps them at an arm’s length, and when he meets Tamara, he’s unprepared for the attraction he feels for her. Told by his coach that she’s off limits, only draws him in more.
Tamara Amis moved to Melbourne to find some distance between her past and herself…
With the help of her uncle, the coach of a Melbourne baseball club, she quickly finds a job, and a place to live. Yet, one meeting with the handsome pitcher stirs unexpected emotions that threaten to overwhelm her.
It’s Oliver’s injury that brings them together, but as they find out about each other’s pasts, how can they be ready to share a future?
My Thoughts - Story
I really liked this story with the inner turmoils both Oliver and Tamara have to deal with, but I had one major problem with it…and shoot, I can’t tell you because it will give away the plot but I can say that sometimes “absence can be a bitch”.
The characters were developed well and their emotional obstacles are definitely what helped to bond with them during the story.
Oliver is a pitcher who is dealing with an injury but also is having the best season ever when he meets the Coach’s niece. He can’t understand why she is aloof and standoffish but he sets about to break that wall down.
Through it all they have many emotional and physical obstacles to overcome but sometimes even those are too hard to defeat.
