Sawyer’s easy smile and laidback style mask his rough start. For the tall Texan the struggle just to survive has been real. Then in a fateful twist, life takes a new direction. Fame, fortune, and women all within his grasp. Though it’s the chance meeting with a beautiful stubborn girl that has him reaching.

Bristol is the only daughter in a Memphis baseball dynasty. She couldn’t care less about the sport or the attention she gets from its players. Her laser focus is on her medical practice. Until one dance with a handsome stranger.

Sometimes the things you want aren't what you truly need.

I have really been enjoying this series of short romances and this book was no different. It was easy to falling love with Sawyer and Bristol and I was eager to see them figure out how to make their relationship work. I found this to be a really well-done quick listen that told a very complete story. I am so glad that I decided to give this book a try.

Bristol and Sawyer were great together. They had fantastic chemistry and seemed to be perfect for each other. Sawyer is a pitcher for the same team that Bristol’s brother plays for. Bristol is the only member of the Swift family that doesn’t care for baseball but that doesn’t stop sparks from flying once she spends some time with Sawyer. Sawyer has a very complex past and wants to make a difference for those going through some of the things he went through as a child. I thought that Sawyer and Bristol both had big hearts and I loved seeing them work together.

Aaron Shedlock and CJ Bloom did a great job with the narration of this story. I thought that their voices complimented each other very well and I thought that they both did a great job in bringing this story to life. I thought that they both did a good job with both the male and female voices in the story. I feel like their narration added to my overall enjoyment of the story.

I would recommend this story to others. This could work as a stand-alone story but the epilogue did a fantastic job of wrapping up the series so I would have to recommend reading the series in order if at all possible. I had a great time listening to this wonderful romance that had a lot of heart. I look forward to reading more of Leslie Pike’s work in the future.

I received a digital review copy of this book from the author/publicist.
