their careers Kristina Mathew writes and entertaining story that I enjoyed from start to finish To read this review and others like it check out my site at wwwhomelovebookscomAs previously mentioned I The Eyes of the Dead have an undying love of baseball And for some reason Iave been picking up every romance book with even the mention of baseball lately Well to be Rules for a Lady honest I ve been picking up every book with any kind of sport in it or at least that sow it seems As for this one I liked it it was pretty goodFirst things first the baseball I think the baseball was done pretty well in this book I think the inner politics of the sport were well done as well as the dynamics of what goes on behind the scenes to make a baseball team actually function I wouldn t Calebs Tempting Mate (Saber Chronicles have thought to write a book about a female owner but it s a nice concept and youave to admit when it comes to baseball there aren t a lot of women involved so this was a nice chance Although at the end I was a little bit bummed at ABC how uickly Hunter was willing to sacrificeerself you ll see what I mean when you read the bookSo Hunter is a pretty good character I liked the whole woman owning a team and being the managing partner it s nice to see women in strong roles I also liked that even though she is wealthy she s simple she is comfortable in simple clothing and nothing about Odd Man In her is over the top Hunter didave some jealous tendencies which is normally something that is annoying to me but Marco is a pro athlete who Palace Intrigue (A Medieval Tale has women throwing themselves atim so I understood the jealousy plus she never throws it in Parking Lot Rules 75 Other Ideas for Raising Amazing Children his face or makes it a big issue or anything I also really liked the inner turmoil shead about the relationship she was in the team versus Carlyle Marney herappiness It definitely Shameful heightened the dramaMarco I liked a lot I liked thate wasn t a perfect athlete e didn t step out onto the field and command it He ad to work Sacred Landscapes hard at getting into the swing of things I liked that along the waye realized that the game isn t decided by one person but rather the team I think it s an important lesson in sports one that so many people forget I Angel Without Mercy (Agnes Carmichael, have to say I wish that the plot line withis family Gold Rush had been expanded on I felt like it was used as a catalyst at the end to get Marco to come to the right conclusions to end the book and I really felt like there was meat to the story that couldave been fleshed out Plus nothing felt resolved with Girl Reporter his father at all But overall I likedow well Marco and Hunter fit together and Hunted how dedicated Marco was to makinger Gingerbread Heart happy I also likedis inner turmoil about whether e was worthy of Hunter and the dynamics of the bossemployee relationshipOne nitpicky note I thought that the baseball cliches used between Marco and Hunter about there relationship was too much So much of the book is baseball driven that it almost walked into that cheesy realm when they would use baseball metaphors all the time Other then that I would say if you like baseball and romance this is definitely a book you should check out I look forward to reading books by Kristina Matthews Marco sure as a smart mouth on Biz Talk-2 him unless youave something else planned for me He raised an eyebrow and flashed one of Ricky Ricottas Mighty Robot vs the Stupid Stinkbugs from Saturn (Ricky Ricotta, his dimples
