This hot-headed rookie needs discipline—on and off the field.
Pitcher Nico Agresta is desperate to live up to his family’s baseball legacy. Since he was a teenager crushing on his big brother’s teammate, he’s known he can’t act on his desires. His father’s made it clear there should be no queers on the field, but if Nico can win Rookie of the Year like his dad and brother did, maybe he can prove he’s worthy after all.
At 34, veteran catcher Jake Fitzgerald just wants to finish out his contract and retire. His team doesn’t have a prayer of making the playoffs, but who needs the stress? Jake lost his passion for the game—and life—after driving away the man he loved, and he swore he’d never risk his heart again.
Then he’s traded to a team that wants a vet behind the plate to tame their new star pitcher. Jake is shocked to find the gangly kid he once knew has grown into a gorgeous young man. But tightly wound Nico’s having trouble controlling his temper in his quest for perfection, and Jake needs to teach him patience and restraint on the mound.
When their push and pull explodes into the bedroom, Nico and Jake will both learn how much they’ll risk for love.

I adore Keira. This chick can rock a story. Her characters always seem to come to life for me. They are so well developed and her scenes are described so well it makes me feel like I’m right there with them. I love Baseball and this was a fantastic read for me. It made me look at it from a different perspective.
I really enjoyed watching Nico grow as a Pitcher and as a Man. He is such a sweet guy but he has a quick temper. Jake was just the person he needed to ground him and help him learn some control.
I liked how they had prior history together. The chemistry between them is amazing and when they finally give in to their desire for each other it is explosive. Amazingness. Bring on the fan because, damn.
The secondary characters were great. I wouldn’t mind having Nico’s siblings for my own. I liked getting to know a few other members of the team as well and Jake’s mom is just pretty damn cool.
I have said in my reviews for Keira that I have yet to find a book I didn’t like and this still holds true. Her writing and story telling is epic. Definitely think you should check this new release out if you haven’t already and especially if you’re a baseball fan. She nails it!! Boom. Definite reread for this girl.
