Love Between the Bases #2
Jennifer Bernard
Releasing Dec 29th, 2015
Avon Books

Love comes out of left field in the second novel in USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Bernard's sexy baseball-themed series...

Months of alternately flirting and bickering with Kilby Catfish catcher Mike Solo just turned into the hottest kiss of Donna MacIntyre's life—and that's a major league complication. Any hint of scandal could keep her from getting her son back from her well-connected ex. Then Mike comes up with a game-changing idea: a marriage proposal that could help win her case—even as it jeopardizes her heart.

Mike hasn't been able to get the gorgeous, gutsy redhead out of his fantasies. The least he can do is fix the mess he helped create. Yet their engagement is quickly becoming about a lot more than doing the right thing. Because after swearing he'd never risk love again, Mike has found a passion that puts all his emotions in play, and a woman he'll go to bat for again and again.

My Review:

     Jennifer Bernard writes amazing contemporary romances that make you feel good inside. Whether it's a hunky fire fighter or a sexy athlete, you know you are in for a good time. 
    Ballplayer  Mike Solo is a one of a kind hero. Right now, he isn't looking for love, but he can't seem to get the sexy Donna MacIntyre out of his mind. So when he has the chance to help her out while she tries to win a custody battle with her ex and his nasty fiance, he finds a reason to get to know her better. Being the white knight he is, he offers her an engagement to help her out which soon snowballs. Donna is a fun, feisty woman, but she is also a woman who loves her small son Zack. She is also trying to make herself and her life better for her boy. While doubting they could ever have a real future, she lets Mike talk her into the wild scheme. And the more they spend time together, the more the sparks bring them closer together.
     The story has a lot of emotional depth as well. Mike has a great relationship with his brother that will touch your heart and Donna discovers she has more friends than she thought who want her to win back her son against the original stacked deck she was dealt. Ms Bernard writes a fun story with humor and a lot of heart. What a wonderful series!


     He ran a hand through the rough curls at the back of his head. “I have to confess something.” His Catholic-boy conscience had been tugging at him this whole time. “Only a couple of those library books are mine. Mostly they’re my neighbor’s. He’s house-bound, so I pick up books for him.”
     Amusement lit up her little heart-shaped face. “Your confession is that you don’t read big piles of books, and that you go to the library for your neighbor? I’m crushed. I was thinking there was a secret genius hidden inside that ripped body.”
     “Maybe I was trying to impress you. We’ve been dancing around each other all season. Don’t you want to see if there’s anything to this chemistry?”
     Her eyes widened. “Here? Are you trying to add public indecency to all those fines?”
     “Just a kiss. One kiss. There’s nothing indecent about a kiss.”
     She considered that for a long moment, while a pleasant tension rose between them. Finally she seemed to make up her mind. She took a step forward, brushing against him.
     “Nothing indecent, Priest? I’ve got news for you.”
      “What’s that?”
     “There is if you do it right.” And she lifted her mouth to his.
