SHE’S GOOD AT HER GAME. Raina Easton never dreamed she’d end up playing ring master to a bunch of baseball cheerleaders. But when the New York Saints offers her a job to coach its new squad–the Fallen Angels–Raina can’t refuse. As the owner of a burlesque club, she can certainly show the girls more than a few good moves. But as for her new boss? That is, as they say, a whole ‘nother story. . .
AND HE’S GOT IT BAD. Army veteran, biker, and all-around tough guy, Malachi Coulter isn’t your typical sports-team owner. For one thing, he doesn’t think cheerleaders belong on the baseball field. Another: he can’t seem to separate business and pleasure when he meets his somewhat scandalous new employee. Seems the major-league bad boy has met his match in the gorgeous, feisty Raina. All’s fair in love and baseball…could it be that, after all this time, Malachi is playing to win?

Army veteran Malachi Coulter is not a typical sports team owner. He loves the game but security is his number one priority. His co-owners believe having cheerleaders for the New York Saints will put their team on the map. Malachi thinks it is a crazy idea and will have to up his security detail.
Reina Easton will do anything to save her building that houses her business for her burlesque club. Training the cheerleading squad for the New York Saints will help financially but when there is a flaw in her security at the club she just might have to accept her boss’s help.
This is the first book I have read for this series. Being book three in the New York Saint’s series I think it might have benefited to read the first two. Although I really liked the story I felt this book was rather slow. I would find myself going hours without wanting to read. With that being said the storyline itself was great. And there are many parts that really made me laugh, which makes me really fall for the characters of this book. I really liked how Malachi can be his bad boy self but let loose when he needs to. Reina is just pure feistiness that is a great quality for a lead character.
My Favorite Moment: I loved how Reina and Malachi would negotiate the details when it came to something they wanted.
