Jessa is the daughter of the owner of a Major League Baseball team in NY. She's smart and determined and is also very beautiful. She works for her dad and feels like people are never genuine around her because of who she is. She was sent by her dad to "babysit" and keep an eye on his newest short stop - the charming and sexy Garrett.
Garrett (as I mentioned) is super charming and sexy. A southern man with more charm in his pinky than most other men. He's a very talented ball player and is a caring and kind person. The moment he sets his eyes on Jessa his heart stops and he wants nothing more than to be with her.
After a small misunderstanding when hey first meet, Garrett shows up at Jessa's hotel room with pizza and beer to get to know each other and already they are kissing and almost doing more. However the next day all bets are off when they go to dinner with some of the other teammates and their wives and Jessa shows up looking too sexy for Garrett. After dinner he can't hold off any longer and they go to his hotel room and have really hot sex.
I felt like Jessa and Garrett fell into each other's arms way to fast - they only spoke a few minutes and were already going at it like animals. Then by day 3 she was already falling in love and said it to Garrett while in the middle of a tickle fest. Also Jessa wasn't my favorite even though I liked her (if that makes sense). She was so hot and cold - one minute fine with one thing and then in the next minute she was thinking too hard and changing her mind. She was giving me whiplash. It did have its good moments when things seemed to be light and fun and really hot.
Overall it was an okay read.
In Spring Training we get to meet Garrett Donovan and Jessa Montgomery. Gar as I call him is so loving and fun and such a southern gentleman. He has come to New York to be a part of the New York Empire Baseball Team. He is so excited to finally have a chance to play pro ball and be able to take care of his family. He is content in knowing his family will not want for anything. But Gar gets a curve ball when he comes face to face with the owners daughter Jessa.
Jessa is sassy and gorgeous and a no none sense girl who is kinda tomboyish because she is the only child of the empire teams owner. But Jessa is surprised by her fathers request that she watch one of the team players. Her first thought and I laughed so hard I was crying was that he was a spoiled athlete used to getting whatever he wanted when he wanted it and she thought oh hell she will have to keep him out of trouble. But when she meets Gar she is taken aback by his sincerity and genuine niceness that she has not seen the likes of.
Soon these two are spending time together and trying to fight off the feelings for one another but it does not work. Gar wants Jessa badly and Jessa wants Gar but she does not want to ruin his career in the process so she tries to stay away but Gar says no he wants her and he is willing to sacrifice everything to be with her. This is such a fun loving story that captivated me and I wanted more. I will re-read this story soon when I am having a bad day because it totally brightened up my day!
Jessa is asked by her father, the team's owner, to babysit Garrett, the team's new player. . Jessa has a problem with following her father's orders since she is very content with just seeking out the talent by knowing their averages and RBIs and not having any personal contact with any of them. Through the years she has seen how these baseball players go through women and has plans of being one of those girls. However, the minute she meets Garrett, there is a spark; a spark that as she gets to know him is harder and harder to ignore.
Garrett is one of the most talented and promising baseball players in the league, but he does not have an ego that has him looking like a tool. He is kind and caring and you cannot help but fall in love with him. Even though he loves to play baseball, he is playing the game to support his mom and widowed sister. I really liked Garrett's character. That is why sometimes, I found Jessa's attitude frustrating. The first time, Garrett and Jessa met, she gave him attitude, but I understood why her defenses were up. She had to deal with egotistical ballplayers all her life. So I expected that behavior from her and I was so glad that she warmed up to Garrett, but I think that it bothered me that she let some silly things affect her feelings for him. I felt like she would make up the drama in her head just so she could have a reason to be mad at Garrett when Garrett had only been so loving and honest with her. I think Jessa's attitude was to make her look strong, but sometimes it came off as her being rude.
I am glad that there was some flirting before everything moved forward.
I think the author has a lot of potential and look forward to reading other books by her.
