My Kinda Player (Summer Sisters #5) by Lacey Black
AJ Summer witnessed four of her sisters fall in love and settle down. But not her. She’s stuck in a rut, destined to spend the rest of her life watching from the dugout, kissing frogs. Then one night, she meets a mysterious stranger, who makes her feel alive and realize she’s not as broken as she thought–until she wakes up alone.
Sawyer Randall lost everything in a split-second when a game-winning play resulted in a career-ending injury. Looking for a fresh start, he settles into the cozy beach town of Jupiter Bay. A chance meeting with a gorgeous woman leaves him restless and anxious for something he swore he’d never want again–love.
But sometimes Prince Charming isn’t who he seems. What happens when circumstances are misleading? Will their love be strong enough to see them through unscathed? Or will AJ be played by the player?
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Where can I possibly start with this book? I’ll just go ahead and throw it out there. Even though there were some serious parts in this book, some parts where I had a few tears in my eyes, and some parts that made me want to smack someone, mostly I laughed throughout this book. Those grandparents are a hoot! And the closeness of the Summer sisters that has been a running theme throughout the series is more than evident in this story too.
AJ is a middle school math teacher, who has had no luck at love. She even tries for a one night stand that definitely doesn’t go the way it should! (Again, I couldn’t help laughing!) Sawyer is a former pro baseball player, who is trying to pick up the pieces of his life and move on, following a career ending injury. So what happens when a middle school math teacher and a former pro baseball player meet up? Fireworks! Add in nosy sisters, inappropriate grandparents, and a crazy ex, and you have all the makings of a fantastic story!
I’ve loved all of the Summer Sisters stories, and this one is no exception. I enjoyed the sparks between AJ and Sawyer, and I loved catching up with the other sisters and their significant others. This story goes beyond a romance, and focuses on family that is always there for you, no matter what the circumstances are, no questions asked. It makes for a story that hits close to home, and brings out all kinds of feelings!
