Nothing is going to stop Nel Parker from raising her fledgling real estate agency to the top of the heap. When she returns two dogs to a million-dollar mansion with a dumpster in the driveway, she thinks the house is her lucky break. But the owner turns out to be a moody professional baseball player with a complicated agenda of his own, leaving Nel to fear her plans for real estate domination are doomed.

Centerfielder Grey Kemmons is spending the off-season renovating the house he inherited fromhis father. It’s a miserable job, but he’s doing it anyway-because somebody has to pay back the money his father stole. When a spitfire of a woman in a surprisingly attractive package shows up wanting to list the house, he agrees to pacify her with a tour, never expecting the mutually beneficial business relationship that ensues.

As weeks go by, business turns to pleasure with Nel and Grey believing the temporary nature of their time together will protect their hearts. Too bad nothing can protect them from or prepare them for love.

My Review:

This is one of those novels that combines a multiplicity of different elements, backgrounds, and social stigmas into a single whole that will take your breath away and leave you reeling. Arden`s brilliant descriptions will paint a picture that you won`t soon forget.

The characters that Arden creates for this wonderful world will pull at your heartstrings. They are both remarkable individuals struggling with their own lives and the curveballs thrown in their path. They are strong individuals separately but they also come together brilliantly in a very cute couple. The contrast between these two is very striking. The supporting cast is also very uniquely and well developed. None are perfect but they are all caring individuals who will go the extra mile for each other.

Overall, this was a very nice twist on the superstar romance genre that leaves you with a warmth in your heart. It`s a smooth, quick read that you will enjoy thoroughly and that will make you smile.
