Is their love a home run, or merely a pop fly?Thoughts on Perfect Catch: This series hits the spot when I'm looking for something light and fun to take my mind off things. I'm not the hugest baseball fan (or sports fan, if I'm being honest), but Sierra Dean's passion for the sport comes through loud and clear and gets me excited for how these boys are going to pull through whatever ails them.
Minor league umpire Alice Darling loves everything about baseball. That means hunky ball players are strictly off limits—dating one would be professional suicide. With a young daughter and a brother to care for, she can’t afford to slip up.
Truth is, as a young, stupid, nineteen-year-old townie, she did once date a player. That’s how she wound up with her precious, nine-year-old daughter…and a determination to never make that mistake again. Alex Ross’s arrival in Florida for spring training, though, shakes her resolve in a big way.
Alex, a catcher for the Major League’s San Francisco Felons, has never let much get in the way of his game. One look at Alice changes everything, and he finds himself pursuing her with a single-minded purpose that plays hell with his concentration.
Booted back to the minors, he returns to Florida with his tail between his legs to work on his swing…and heat things up with Alice. But when rumors of their affair hit the sports blogosphere, Alice’s career is put in jeopardy, and their love starts to look more like a strikeout than a home run.
Warning: When a catcher struggling with his swing meets a stubborn single-mom umpire, his bat won’t be the only thing that heats up. Contains car sex, bed sex, sex sex, and a little angst for good measure.
Okay. So, Alex. He's a a sweetie. He really is one of the good guys who hasn't let his fame or wealth go to his head. It's unfortunate for him that Alice is still stinging from her ex's douche-baggery. Frankly, her ex is a jerk. I sort of desperately hope he gets what's coming to him and realizes what he's missing out on with the way he's been acting.
But this book isn't about jerky exes getting their just desserts. This book is about Alice and Alex. With Alice's job, she's in a sticky situation as far as dating a player goes. Her family life is a little messy... I'm understating that a bit, just so you know. She's down to earth and when she decides to go for something, she goes all in.
Enjoyable, sexy, and downright fun. The background players are a hoot and I have a few I'm rooting for to get a book down the line.
