By V.K. Robbins
Genre: Erotic Romance, Romance Suspense
Publication Date: January 30, 2015

Book Synopsis

Talented young ballplayer Clay Love has just been called up from the minors to play major league baseball. Freelance writer and divorcée Rose Lasting, the world's biggest baseball fan, wasn't expecting to fall in love when she fell into Clay's arms, but fall in love she did. Now they are caught up in a whirlwind romance complicated by the paparazzi, Clay's ex-girlfriend, Rose's ex-
husband, and a stalker who puts Rose's life in grave danger. Saving her life and catching her attacker takes you on a roller coaster of emotion and intrigue that you won't soon forget.
Rookie Season is the first book in the Love in the Ballpark Series, by V.K. Robbins. This adult erotic romance tale sizzles with romantic and sexual chemistry, emotion, and suspense. Once you start reading, you won't be able to put it down.

The story of Rose (Rosie by those closest to her) and Clay.
I enjoyed this tale of a wealthy, but humble, divorcee - Rose, and her baseball rookie boyfriend.  There is an age gap of about 10 years between Rose and Clay (she's older), a determined ex-husband, and a mentally unstable ex-girlfriend.  My favorite character was Sam, Rose's best friend, who is a wonderful father figure for her.

The author writes her stories for easy, smooth reading.  The story is told in the first person perspective of Rose.  The story flows at an even pace, and though mostly predictable, still enjoyable!  I was happy when she threw  a curveball (get it? Baseball. Ha) of one character's background.  I never give away plot secrets - so read it for yourself!
I hope HUNTER is the next book in the series!

This book was provided to me in exchange for an honest review.
