One of the things I enjoy about the EC For Men line of books at Ellora’s Cave is that you get all the hot sex without having to worry about whether or not the couple will be well-suited for each other in a romantic relationship. Take Me At The Ballgame is probably the quintessential example of the line, with all the hot sex you expect and not much more than that in a mere 32 pages.
JT is an older divorced sportswriter who likes to look at the ladies in his midst, and right now the one who’s got his attention is Sydney, a lithe and leggy intern who works in the press box at the home stadium for the local professional baseball team. He only gets to see her when the team is in town, but each time they meet, he fantasizes about having her on her knees, servicing him in every possible way. When he makes his move one evening after the game is over and everyone else has gone, she’s more than ready and willing to make all his fantasies come true.
The bulk of the story is taken up with all the times Sydney and JT enjoy each other sexually in the privacy of the press box, and there’s not a thing wrong with that. The scenes are engaging and neither of them comes across in any negative way. On the contrary, JT shows a refreshingly positive side defending Sydney when another person spots them in a compromising position and attempts to make the most of his discovery. Neither JT nor Sydney expect more from each other than what they have at that moment, and what they have is some well-written sexual encounters that made reading Take Me At The Ballgame a brief but enjoyable treat.
Sports writer JT Lovejoy has a chance that’s too good for a middle-aged, divorced guy to pass up—bedding a hot young intern. Of course, there might never be a bed involved, since all the steamy action goes down in the press box. Not that JT’s complaining. How can he, when a beautiful woman offers herself with no commitment? If he’s smart, he won’t question his luck. And JT is a smart man.
