REVIEWED BY Melinda Lazar
Stealing Home by Nicole Williams
I love sports romances and can’t pass an opportunity to read one when presented. While I’m not exactly familiar with baseball, I didn’t find myself confused while devouring this thoroughly enjoyable book.
Allie has her dream job as athletic trainer for a major league baseball team, San Diego Shock, and she’s not about to let anyone or anything jeopardize it; not least of all a fling with star player, Luke Archer. From their first conversational exchange, I could feel the attraction positively sizzling between the two and couldn’t wait to get right in to the story.
I just loved everything about Luke. He’s so sweet and sexy, loyal, loves his family with all he has, and is completely down to Earth. In short, he’s the perfect hero. Having had a bad experience previously with a player (in both contexts), Allie is wary of Luke and his intentions and understandably so. She’s very driven and focused on her position within the team but can’t fight the attraction, however unwilling it is.
I thought this was a fun, light-hearted, downright steamy read and a perfect introduction to this author’s writing. I did feel that the ending was a little rushed and would have enjoyed a little more angst in that regard. Otherwise, it was great and I’m looking forward to reading more of this authors works.
