Romance Sports

GRAND SLAM is the third book in the Boys of Summer series by Heidi McLaughlin. This contemporary sports romance novel is full of intensity, intrigue, and steamy love scenes. A story that is sure to grab ahold of you making you not want to put this one down.

McLaughlin has written a story that shows what it really is like when you fall for someone who is just a little out of your reach. When a sexy ballplayer knows he can have any woman he wants, he always gets his way. That is until Saylor shows up as the manager of the baseball team that Travis plays for. The attraction is instant, but the risks are high for everyone involved. When a steamy one-night stand leaves Saylor with major regret the next morning, she tries at all costs to avoid the one man that has her heart. Travis is the typical playboy player to everyone on the team. They never get the chance to see his sweet tender side. Saylor seems to soften him up which helps to make for some unforgettable scenes.

GRAND SLAM may be the third book in the series, but can easily be read as a standalone novel. I will admit that after reading GRAND SLAM, I now want to read the previous novels. The characters are well developed and have their own uniqueness to help make them stand out. A sports romance that is full of the ups and downs that a forbidden relationship can create. When life gives you hard choices, how do you decide what is best for you? GRAND SLAM is perfect for those of you who love a dreamy, steamy romance with a baseball twist.
