This long-awaited story of the third Wolfe brother introduces the Seattle Skookums baseball team. 

Zeke Wolfe, the man who’s written off his entire family, rescues a young woman and three children on a stormy Seattle night. Before he knows it, he has an instant family and a fake fiancĂ© he’s certain he doesn’t want.

Paisley Madison dreams of having a real home for herself and her sister's children. When a handsome baseball player drops into her life, she knows a gift when she sees one and hires herself as his assistant.

As their business arrangement turns into something much more personal, Paisley and Zeke's pasts threaten to destroy their precarious hold on a future together. Can they conquer their demons and find love, or will they run from their pasts and abandon their future together?


I picked up a copy of this book at the pro-store at Kaufman Stadium thinking that it would help to explain the game of baseball to me. It didn't, but at least it gave me something to read during the game my husband was forcing me to attend. 

I obviously started this book out disappointed that it wasn't explaining baseball to me, so we got off on the wrong foot. However, that Zeke Wolfe is a smooth talker and he soon had me basically drooling at his feet, his six pack abs certainly helped with that. I found myself completely ignoring the players on the field in favor of focusing my attention on the player in the book, and what a player he was. 

I'd like to say that I related to Paisley, but I just could not put myself in her tiny Jimmy Choo's. Those things were so freakin' uncomfortable. And someone should have told her that animal print is so last season. She was just so pushy, sticking her nose in my Zekey's life where it didn't belong, butting in with those little brats and interrupting our peace. And the chick absolutely could not take the hint that she was NOT wanted anywhere near us. Sister needed to get a clue, but I felt helpless to give her one because I'm not a monster that will assault a woman in front of kids, no matter how bad her ass deserves it. 

Although this book wasn't what I was expecting when I started it, it did pass the time during the game that I didn't want to attend in the first place, so for that I give it two foul balls.
