4.0 out of 5 stars Starts out with a bang and ends with a thud!, September 8, 2010
This review is from: Double Play (Berkley Sensation) (Mass Market Paperback)
The great thing about this book is the first half of the book. I love Shalvis's writing style. She engages the reader and has a very easy writing style. I loved Pace from the first sentence of the book and that love only grew throughout the book. Holly was a bit tougher to love.

I love the professional athlete type story line, but in my opinion Susan Elizabeth Phillip's Chicago Star's football series has ruined me for all others. I felt like I had happened across something special when I started this book. Pace and Holly had amazing chemistry and I loved that Pace was experiencing hardships that many professional athletes experience. It made him more human to me and I loved his quick wit. Then, about halfway through things went wrong. Drug use in baseball was explored ad nauseam and Holly turned into a "I'm a reporter and I have to report the news" type of character. The chemistry that had burned between them seemed to fizzle out amongst all the mistrust, injuries, and superstitions.

It's too bad because the first half of this book is as good as it gets!
