  A kiss in a dark alcove triggers the greatest challenge of their lives… Ace pitcher Scotty Donovan has been traded from his longtime team—and hates it. But to his surprise, he now finds himself in the sweetest game of his life: winning the heart of smart, sexy physics professor Chloe McNalley. Chloe loves teaching, but she’s never fit into academia. When she falls for Scotty, she discovers his arms and heart are where she belongs. They share a passion for the game, a fascination for the mysteries of the universe and an increasing love for one another. Then Chloe inherits Scotty’s new team. As player and team owner, they shouldn’t be dating. They try to hide their passion, until a blackmailer threatens them personally and professionally. Exposure could be the end of everything–Scotty’s career, Chloe’s team ownership, and their new love—unless they find a way to transcend the taboo standing between them.

Thrown By Love (Heart of the Game, #2)Thrown By Love by Pamela Aares
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received this book as a complimentary copy for an honest review.  This is the first book I have read from Author Pamela Aares.

This is the story of a woman, Chloe, who looses her father, her last living relative, and inherits a baseball team.  I really liked how the relationship with her father and the loss of him was approached, it brought another detention to this story and made you love Chloe.  She struggles with the grief and loss while falling in love with a man who is off limits. Scotty the pitcher of her baseball team is a sweet, sexy man who falls hard for Chloe and wants to find a way to be together.

There are many interesting twists and turns in this book that kept my interest in the story.  The struggles that are faced with the press and the many obstacles that are thrown in the way of having a relationship along the way made me keep turning the pages to find out what was next.

I very much enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more from this author.
