For baseball superstar Garrett Donovan, his contract with the New York Empire baseball team meant he’d finally have the means to secure a future for his family. He should focus on that…not on the sassy, beautiful Jessa Montgomery — or what she looks like naked. Getting involved with the daughter of the Empire’s owner would be career suicide. Jessa is a distraction he can’t afford.
Her father had warned her never to get involved with his athletes, so his request that she keep an eye on his new star player came straight out of left field. The last thing Jessa needs is another spoiled, egotistical ball player to deal with. But Garrett is none of those things. His no-nonsense attitude and smooth Southern charm make her blood burn and her knees weak. Giving into temptation, she is consumed by the pleasure she finds in Garrett’s arms.
Jessa wants to protect his career. Garrett won’t let anything get in the way of their passion.A passion that could cost him everything.
When Garrett Donovan landed a contract with the New York Empire baseball team - it was not just a dream come true but it’s a means of security for the future of the family he left in Mississippi. Being the only male left in the family, their future is his burden to bear. He didn’t have time to date, get drunk, and have sex. He focused himself on practices and playing on the field – until the beautiful Jessa Montgomery decided to grace their Spring Training. She’s sexy, hot, love the game and fun to be with – totally lethal combination for him. He knew he should not get involve with her. He was just going to get himself into trouble.
Being the only child and daughter of the Empire’s owner was not a piece of cake for Jessa Montgomery. At a young age, instead of having parties and dating boys, she spent it with her father on the stadium learning about baseball. Although she spent her days with a lot of men, her father had warned her to never get involved with his players. So when he requested her to babysit his new star player, she was surprised. It was a waste of her time for her to guard another spoiled, egotistical ball player when she has a lot on her plate. But Garrett proved to be different: he’s a responsible guy who’s sexy as hell, cares about his family and is great in bed. Jessa knew being with her would cause him trouble, she wants nothing but protect his career for the people he loved the most. Garret, on the other hand, wants Jessa – whatever it takes, even if it would cost him his career.
Their relationship was a whirlwind, roller-coaster affair that is set to crash once her father or anyone knew what they were doing. BUT!!! I adore the two characters – Garrett for being a responsible son and someone who was willing to fight and take the risk for love and Jessa for trying to do what she thought was best for Garrett. I just knew what her father was up to – it wasn’t nice; nevertheless, they found each other.
Spring Training is a short read. Although their relationship had my head aches because of the constant on-off status (they couldn’t seem to decide if what they were doing is right or not), I finished it in one sitting and I was craving for more baseball hottie! If you want to read something light, short, sweet and steamy, with hot baseball players and forbidden romance – Spring Training might be the right one for you!
