The Bad Boys of Baseball are back! In Katie Rose’s sweet, sparkling novel, the newest New Jersey Sonic falls for the woman who’s trying desperately to save his career.
Physical therapist Jessica Hart has learned her lesson: Never date professional athletes. She’s been down that road, and barely recovered after the relationship crashed and burned. Then Jessica meets Gavin King. An All-Star slugger with chiseled good looks, Gavin was traded to the Sonics because he hurt his knee sliding into second, and now his future is in her hands. Gavin’s no bad boy—but he’s tempting enough to make Jessica think twice about all her rules.
Gavin is trying to find a comfortable routine. If he wants his old life back, he must take it easy, stay out of the limelight, and keep his distance from gorgeous redheaded physical therapists. The thing is, Gavin isn’t the kind of guy to sit on his ass and let other people pull his weight. And when he sees something he wants, he can’t help but fight for it, even if it means risking everything, even if it only lasts a single moment: like one kiss from Jessica.

Gavin King, All-Star slugger is in the prime of his career. That is until he hurt his knee. Not wanting to take a chance on his injury he is traded to the New Jersey Sonics. Knowing he must complete rehab so he can get back in the game he will stop at nothing. When he meets his therapist he cannot wait to spend more time with her.
Jessica Hart is the therapist for the New Jersey Sonics. When she meets the new addition to the team she is not bothered by his good looks, even if he is tall, dark and handsome. Having a bad break-up not too long ago makes her swear off baseball players for good.
Gavin is not looking for a relationship since he is already in one with a hot model. But when that relationship falls with his career he notices things about Jessica that he is drawn too. Knowing about her past relationship and the words of advice from her brother he knows that he will have his hands full trying to win this one over.
I loved Jessica. Her character is just a normal girl trying to do her job, real relationship issues and has the flaws of a normal woman. Gavin is not your typical baseball player that you read about. He loves his career but knows he needs to be healthy before he can return. He is truly sincere when it comes to Jessica and her feelings.
I loved reading this book. It is the 3rd in the series and I have loved reading about The Boys of Summer.
My Favorite Moment: I really had to laugh when the trade was spotted on Twitter before Gavin even knew himself. Have to love technology these days.
My Favorite Moment: The test driving was fun. A hot ball player just cannot be seen driving a minivan.
