Liza Sutherland isn’t looking for love. Not from a charity-auction date she didn’t even bid on and especially not with Nationals first baseman Cole Collins, the guy she obsessed over as an awkward teenager. She won’t get involved with a notorious player, no matter how attractive Cole is. Cole Collins is up for contract renegotiation, but after too many late-night parties, he’ll need some positive publicity before he can make the roster. His agent, Frank, pitches Liza as the perfect prop…only Cole didn’t account for Liza no longer being just a teenager with a crush. She’s gorgeous and smart and he’s instantly hooked. When Frank makes Liza a deal she can’t refuse—a bet she will fall in love with Cole or a cool half mil goes to charity—the game is on. But neither bet on the real feelings that surface. Could a fake fling turn into an official forever?

Oh, plus, the added side dish of romance, can’t forg...
3.5 to 4 starsReview: I was attracted to this title for two reasons: it’s a second chance at love trope, and because hero Cole is a baseball player. I have to say, when the story starts out, our Cole is not very heroic. In fact, he’s pretty much a sleaze bag. His contract with the Nationals is i...
