After a career destroying disaster, sports agent Samantha Baker needs one client to prove her worth. And Evan Tanner is the one who can prove it all for her. A late-blooming rookie with talent for the record books. But her has aims further from the field. He just wants to win over the woman who seems to be hurt personally and professionally.


This is the final book in the series, but not even for a moment did I feel as if the story was lagging for me. The plot has been built on solid foundation with the right mix of chemistry, romance and drama. The story resounds faintly with me mainly because of the way the character of Samantha Baker has been potrayed. All the characters have built to be in sync with the plot and the development is complimentary to each other. The narrative style is very simple and speaks for both the characters and compliments the story well.

The cover image and the title is complimentary to each other and speaks for the storyline with the simplicity.

My opinion: It’s  a good book and defintely works well as a quick read.

My rating: 4 out of 5
