Curveball by V.K. Sykes
Book Blast & Giveaway!

Taylor Page never wanted anything but a career in major league baseball.  Through talent and guts, she’s finally landed a position as Assistant General Manager of the Philadelphia Patriots.  The only problem is that most men in baseball still don’t take a woman exec seriously, especially a thirty-year old blonde with no on-field experience.  She needs to do something big to convince her bosses she has what it takes to run a team.

Veteran Pittsburgh outfielder Ryan Locke’s career is in jeopardy when a suddenly unreliable throwing arm comes on top of rehab from a major injury. A single parent with a troubled daughter and an alcoholic mother to provide for, retirement is out of the question. Ryan’s best hope is for a trade to an American League team as a designated hitter, allowing him several more years of play.

When Taylor needs a replacement for an injured first baseman, she comes up with an innovative but risky idea: convince her boss to make a trade for Ryan Locke, and then convince the still talented slugger to play first base for the Patriots. With Ryan dead-set against that plan and both their careers on the line, neither Taylor nor Ryan can afford the explosive physical attraction between them.  But despite Taylor’s best efforts to resist Ryan’s campaign of seduction, she’s not sure she’s got the willpower to keep from playing along. 

My Thoughts: 

Sometimes I think I should re-name this blog Save Your Money for Sports Romance Books. Most of you that follow me already know they are my favorite and I never turn down a chance to promote one, especially when it is part of a series I already love!

Check out this cover! I would have bought this book for the cover alone! Holy hot baseball player! 

This series is excellent and the 4th installment does not disappoint. The Sykes tell a great story and for those of us that enjoy the sports aspect and the romance aspect it's the best of both worlds. Ryan and Taylor are so scorching hot, the love scenes are worth a re-read! All of the books in this series are stand alone books, so even if you haven't read the previous 3, you can pick this book up and go! I really enjoyed this and can't wait for more from this author team. Curveball gets a GRAND SLAM- 5 Stars from SYMFB! Go get this book for the bargain price of $2.99, you can't go wrong!
