Jarrod is a dirty-talking baseball player who pursues Amalie after meeting her at a club one night. They soon strike up a hot and heavy relationship and when her ex comes back into the picture, he’s the alpha to the rescue.
As mentioned before, there is a lot of dirty talk and sex, which isn’t necessarily a problem, but it was a bit gratuitous and the dirty talk bordered on cheesy.
But the biggest issue I had with this book was Amalie. I couldn’t stand her. She was constantly belittling herself. She would repeatedly tell herself she was fat, called herself a “plus-sized” model like it was a bad thing, telling herself she was stupid…if the character doesn’t like herself, how on earth is the reader supposed to? It was insulting, period.
This is my first read by this author and I’m not sure if I’d pick up another, if I’m honest. This book was largely forgettable. I’m a huge fan of sports romances and I appreciated that the characters were in their mid to late 20s, but this just didn’t work for me.
Amalie is a 6th feet tall ultrasound technician living with her best friend and roommate Jo. One night, she meets a tall, sexy guy in the VIP room at a local club. Then she leaves the club before she learns anything about him. But she doesn’t forget the “mystery” guy who made her feel feminine and vulnerable, especially while being sensitive about her height and curves. So, to capitalize on that hot duo, she indulges in a “hobby” as a pinup model.
A few days later, he calls her out of the blue and takes her out on a date. The next thing you know she is dating “mystery” man with the red Ferrari and NYC penthouse apartments. He introduces her to his “colleagues” and takes her to work with him. Who takes the girl you dating to work with you? She wonders. Turns out Mr. Mystery Man, Jarrod, is a professional baseball player. Amalie does not follow sports and has no idea what a big deal Jarrod is in the sports world.
The story is very romantic; the sex is very HOT! Everything Jarrod throws, in and out of the bedroom, has a lot of heat behind it. He is a guy who wants to introduce her to his friends and family. He is the perfect guy to protect and love her. The romance is very beautiful with elements of suspense. I hope to see more Boys of Summer romances from this new author.
And he may be all alpha male.... but he is also sweet, and romantic and caring. Jarrod is also HOT. The sex scenes..... OH MY GOD!! So hot. If you are squeamish about sex scenes - this book may not be for you. For me, the author weaves their love story so intricately that the sex scenes are just an extension of the love that is building between them.
This book has it all. I laughed. I choked up. I lost my mind over the beautifully erotic sex scenes and then I laughed again. And I could not put it down. I literally read this book in a day (and most of a night!) I read voraciously and it doesn't happen very often that a book comes along that I just CANNOT put down!! I highly recommend this fun, sexy book. I cannot wait to see what this new author comes out with next!
