I love reading sport team romances. Pitch Perfect is another title to add to your list if you are like me. This book has great characters and just the right amount of sports. I hope that there are more in this series. I want to find out about some of the other players. I hope each has their own story.
On the sex side, Pitch Perfect was good and not too explicit. The authors wrote just enough for the reader to knew that Emmy and Tucker were both satisfied.
Emmy is a head athletic trainer for the San Francisco Felons, a job that isn't usually held by a woman in this career field. Emmy grew up with baseball in her blood and is great at her job. She has busted her butt to get where she is. Tucker is a pitcher for the Felons. He has an injury to his shoulder, but has been trying to make a comeback. He wants to get back to that spot where he once was or to retire. He is older than the average age of baseball players, but is determined to make a comeback. He is paired up with Emmy and she works him hard. She teaches him what is wrong with his pitching and how to make it better. These two great characters met each other by accident. Emmy was on her way to her new job only to find out that Tucker and Alex (the catcher) were on the team. Will Tucker be able to make Emmy see the real him? Will Emmy be able to help Tucker make a comeback? Will their jobs be effected? Will Emmy finally admit how she feels about Tucker? All of these questions are answered in this fun sports contemporary romance.
She’d be the perfect catch if he could take his eye off the ball.
Emmy Kasper knows exactly how lucky she is. In a sport with few opportunities for women at the pro level, she’s just landed her dream job as head athletic trainer for the San Francisco Felons baseball team. Screwing up is not an option.
She’s lost in thought as she pedals to the spring training facility, her mind abuzz with excitement as she rounds a corner—and plows head-on into two runners. The end of her career dances before her eyes when she realizes she’s almost run over the star pitcher.
As Tucker Lloyd watches the flustered Emmy escape with his bandana tied around her skinned knee, the view is a pleasant change from worrying about his flagging fastball. At thirty-six, the tail end of his career is glimmering on the horizon. If he can’t pull something extraordinary out of his ball cap, the new crop of rookies could make this season his last.
The last thing either of them needs is a distraction.
The last thing either of them expects is love.
Warning: Contains a down-on-his-luck pitcher, a good-girl athletic therapist, chemistry that’s out of the park and sexy times that’ll make them round all the bases.
