Walker Callahan has loved from afar for as long as he can remember.

The golden boy of the Callahan baseball dynasty, he’s the only player to ever secure a top spot on a roster controlled by his own flesh and blood. The pressure, duty and plans laid out for him since birth loom large, causing things like love and a family to fall by the wayside.

Or maybe that’s because the woman he loves is already married with children.

When they met, she was already promised to someone else. For over six years, he resigned himself to being her friend. Until one night, when her marriage and the ugly secrets it keeps unravels for the world to see. She’s burned, scared and needs someone who will put her needs above everything else.

Can Walker risk his own future and show her how to trust again? Or will the feelings he’s kept hidden for years throw him out of the game before he can even attempt to play?

Hannah Giraldi never wants to fall in love again.

All it brings is pain, misery and her life falling to shambles. After a very public scandal, her abusive husband takes everything, leaving her to raise two daughters on nothing but charity from others, a hope, and a prayer.

New to the job market, single motherhood, and with two court cases on her plate, the last thing she needs are the butterflies that Walker ignites in her stomach every time he comes around. But with his soothing words, supportive shoulder to lean on, and undeniable gorgeousness, he’s pretty hard to ignore.

Just when it feels like she might be standing on her own two feet, the world comes crumbling down around her. And the man she’s finally allowed into her heart abandons her, once again leaving her to pick up the pieces.

Is there a way to heal all of the broken parts, or will Hannah go down swinging while attempting one more shot at a happily ever after?

____________________________
Sinclair Callahan is a trust fund baby.

Born into one of the richest, most notorious families in the country, the black sheep title was stamped on him from an early age. While the rest of his relatives earn their keep at the top tier baseball team they’ve owned for generations, Sin prefers spending his time and money on booze, babes and bad decisions.

Until all three land him in a coma, fighting for his life.

One year later, with a sober chip in his hand, he arrives at spring training ready to turn it all around. But when he meets the only woman who doesn’t recognize just who he is, he can’t help omitting a few important details … like his last name. No stranger to charming women, Sin uses one of his old skillsets to kick off what is sure to be an epic hookup.

But when she shows up five months after their brief Florida fling with a secret that will topple his privileged world, he might just lose everything he’s worked so hard to rebuild. Including a real shot at love with the sassy redhead that he’s been too much of a coward to pursue.

Can he shoulder the responsibility he’s always shrugged off? Or will he balk at the real-life complications and strike out completely?

Francesca Kade is an independent goal-getter.

As one of the only female strength coaches in the league, she’s used to invading the boys’ club. After putting up with being passed over and not promoted for a number of seasons, she’s finally got her shot.

A consummate professional with blinders on, there is no way anything will screw up all she hopes to achieve. Well, except for maybe the new employee with eyes the color of ocean waves and a smirk that’s the definition of sin. When they catch fire in the southern heat, it’s almost impossible to put it out.

Until she finds out that he’s her boss’s boss’s boss.

Burned from the betrayal and panicking with a fresh secret of her own, Frankie is shocked when she lands her ultimate dream job. There is no way she’s turning it down. But when she bumps into Sinclair on day one, all of the old feelings and new problems come hurtling at her like a baseball to the face.

Will she ever be able to trust that he’ll put both her and his responsibilities before his vices? Or will their differences cost them the game?

My Review…

I am so in love with the Callahan series and I have been so looking forward to Sinclair’s story. Who doesn’t love a reformed bad-boy? I know I do and Sinclair is the epitome of a changed man in his story.

This is Sinclair and Frankie’s story.

I absolutely love Frankie, she is a take charge woman in a man dominated world of baseball. She is girl power personified. I could relate to her in so many ways and that too is what make me fall for her. 

They way that Sin and Frankie meet is fun and exciting, but I knew things were gonna get bumpy when summer training was over and boy did it ever! You are going to be thrown a curveball, just like Frankie!

I loved the flow of this story and the way that Ms. Aarons was able to address the issues of addiction and how everyone deserves a second chance.  

There are swoons aplenty and when Sinclair faces his fears and goes for what he wants, well Frankie makes him work for it and rightly so!

I hope there are more stories coming from this family in the future! 

 

The Callahan Series…

I was so waiting for Walker and Hannah’s story! This story can be read as a standalone but I had the honor to read and review the first book in this series. So I have had the chance to “meet” Walker and Hannah before.

Hannah is a victim of domestic abuse. Ms. Aarons handles this horrific situation with grace, dignity and an honesty that really brings the reader in. I could really empathize with what Hannah was going through. 

Walker has a true saviors complex. He has had feelings for Hannah for a long time, even before she married. So when the opportunity presents itself to Walker to be more to Hannah and be a part of her orbit, he jumps at the chance.

They have a bit of a whirlwind relationship. I was leary that it was going too fast, too soon, but the feelings and chemistry that they had was building over the years. 

I also admired the fact that Hannah became strong and self-reliant, on her own. She did lean on Walker, but when push comes to shove, she steps up to the plate and does things on her own.

I am so enjoying this family and their dynamics! I cannot wait to see what comes next!!
