My dreams of making it to the big league had finally come true,
But one wild night in a strip club which was clearly a mistake
Landed me squarely on the team’s bad boy list.
The PR manager is supposed to smooth it all over,
Too bad all I wanted was to get in trouble with her.
I wasn’t really the playboy they thought I was,
I just needed to find the right woman to set me straight.
Now I just have to prove I’m not what she thought.
I have the career I’ve always dreamed of,
Even if I have to deal with players who can’t seem to keep out of the news.
What’s more infuriating is the one player I want to hate the most I can’t stop thinking about.
The one whose voice makes me want to drop my panties at his feet.
I know all about his playboy ways,
But I also know the press can spin things to fit their narrative.
Is he really as innocent as he claims to be? Or will he throw a screw ball I never saw coming?
In the beginning, I had mixed feelings about this book. Don’t get me wrong, it was an amazing story, but at first, I didn’t really like Lucas all that much. First impression was, He’s a real jerk! And I really didn’t think they were going to be able to get past that. But I should have known better. This author has a way of taking a jerky playboy and turning them into Mr Right, when the right woman comes along, of course!
Carmen has worked hard to get where she is. And she isn’t going to let some playboy mess that up for her! She’s determined to make him fall in line, keep his image clean, and not make her job harder than it already is! But the more she is around him, the more he shows her a different side of himself. Which side is real, and which side is the face he presents to those that don’t really know him?!?
Lucas is new to MLB, and to the Lightning. He’s just been called up to the Majors, and he’s enjoying every bit of what it has to offer. And it’s gotten him into trouble with the Lightning’s PR Director. Uh oh! But in the end, Lucas plays a good game, but isn’t really what he appears to be at first. Can he convince Carmen of that, and to give him a chance?
This book goes from hot to scorching in 2.2 seconds! Carmen and Lucas seemed to be an odd pairing, didn’t appear to have anything in common, but that didn’t stop the chemistry! Explosive!!!! And don’t get me started on the surprises that came out of left field! The entire Indianapolis Lightning series has been fun, but I think I like Carmen and Lucas most of all!
