After a woman claims she's pregnant with Wade O'Riley's love child, Major League Baseball's most celebrated catcher and ladies' man is slapped on the wrist by management and ordered to improve his image. His enforcer is the team's publicist, the tough and sexy Samantha mcNead.
When Wade needs a date for a celebrity wedding, Sam steps up to the plate as his "girlfriend". But given her secret crush on him and that one awkward night a year ago in a stalled elevator with too much Scotch, the whole thing is an exercise in sexual tension.
Wade is thrilled when the pretense turns into an unexpected night of hot passion. But the next day Sam is back to her cool self. As a catcher, Wade's used to giving the signals, not struggling to read them. Now, to win the love of his "pretend" girlfriend, he needs a home run--even if it involves stealing a few bases...
First Line: She'd read somewhere that the way to a man's heart was through his stomach, but Samantha McNead knew better than that-- in certain men the stomach was aiming a bit too high.
Favorite Line(s): n/a
My Review: Batter Up!
Jill Shalvis brings back the hot and sexy boys of summer in Slow Heat and she does not disappoint!Slow Heat was a fun, sexy read, filled with sexual tension.
Slow Heat had everything I enjoy in a contemporary story--fast pace, strong character development, and a believable plot. Jill Shalvis has a way to make you feel for her characters and remember them long after you put the story down, that is not any easy task.
I will say that this book could have used a few more chapters to help tie some story lines up but maybe Jill Shalvis has plans to re-visit these story lines in future books??
I am sorry for the short and to the point review but I am still behind about 12 book reviews and it is kinda giving me anixety so I need to hammer them out!
HA HA HA!
