“Kiss me. Just this once . . . please Walker.”
Those whispered words were my undoing . . .
As the most hated player in baseball, I had two options: either clean up my image or pack my bags. Being traded wasn’t an option which only meant one thing, I had to become compliant.
That’s how I found myself sharing a small bistro table with Kate Chapman, the Chicago Bobbies newest PR Manager. Devastatingly beautiful, vastly intelligent, and incredibly cunning, she knows exactly how to handle my grumpy demeanor.
It was supposed to be simple. Book some PR events, show up, smile for the camera, and be done. But one massive mistake on my end sends me into the trenches with Kate, forcing me to open up to her.
Innocent glances turn into cordial encounters.
Secret touches turn into tempting invitations.
And dangerous nights alone turn into consuming desperation.
I’ve never wanted a woman as much as I want her. And I know she wants me, but there’s a no fraternizing with the players rule. Neither of us can afford to lose our jobs, but we also can’t seem to keep our hands off each other either.
Maybe the least-liked player in baseball can be trained.
ARC REVIEW ➞
The Perfect Catch is a delicious slow burn full of laughs, tension and plenty of heat!
Walker is an unexpected surprise. He is the least liked player in baseball, a grump, keeps to himself, however, there is so much more to him. Walker is a character that you can’t help but fall in love with and you continue to fall deeper in love with the man. Kate is working on PR for the Bobbies and is helping Walker clean up his public image. There is a little bit of dislike between them, but there is also some sparks beginning to form.
Walker and Kate’s relationship is slow, teasing and frustrating. I just wanted these two to give into their desires and explore the explosive chemistry that is between them. However, as frustrating as it was at times I couldn’t get enough. I was glued to the pages of this story. Then of course, there was a wrench thrown into everything and it destroyed my heart. I felt the pain and hurt.
The Perfect Catch was so much more than I expected and I LOVED everything single moment of it. Walker quickly became one of my favorites in the #TowelBrigade.
