Strike One … in one night, Brooke Miller loses her boyfriend, her job and possibly her reputation. She vows revenge on her old boss by bringing a defunct vineyard back to its former glory. But ex-baseball star Billy Turlock swoops in and buys her dream vineyard.

Strike Two…Billy hopes the new family business will give him direction and purpose, now that he can no longer play baseball. He can’t afford to fail again, and for that he needs Brooke, who has hated him and all athletes since high school … even if he’s never forgotten her.

Wild pitch … when it becomes clear the hot hunk is interested in more than a working relationship, Brooke wonders if their wild attraction could ever last …

Review

This story really makes me feel excited because Brooke’s character really stands out while I was reading the first book. She has that spunk and cool character that’s really hard not to notice. But what also intrigues me most is who’s going to be the lucky guy. I thought the excitement just ended there, but to my surprise, my most awaited hottie from the Turlock brothers is finally here!

Unlike the first book, this story piques my attention just by reading its first chapter. It wasn’t just because of Brooke but it’s because of the situation she was in. That was really maddening so what Brooke did just serves the j*rk right! 

After quitting her job, she planned on owning a winery and the first thing she needed was the old Mirassu vineyard. But Billy, the town’s popular baseball superstar bought the winery in cold cash. Who would have thought that it’s because of that land that Brooke’s life will start to change eh?

Their love story fortunately is kinda new to me which I honestly thought at first that it’s going to be cliché. Like a popular hot jock falling in love with this typical girl. But no it’s not! Their story actually started when they were in high school but it was 10 years after that that their “love story” truly started, and I really like that because all weren’t made without a haste.

I love how their story blossomed though I was really irritated with their conflicts. Why is it hard for couples to tell what they feel for each other eh? Well, I guess it’s easier to act than say it? Well, I dunno ok!

I was also happy because finally, Brooke conquered her fears. Well, actually both of them knew and corrected all their setbacks. Billy on what he really loves to do, and Brooke on her fear to fall in love.

For the main characters, I really can’t hide how I adore Brooke’s, I love how extreme she is which leads to her being so headstrong. Her character was also not “all perfect” unlike most romance stories tend to do. Her character is a kind of character that we can all easily relate to, especially her phobia with darkness and her being afraid to fall in love.

Billy on the other hand is a true picture of a gorgeous heat-inducing baseball superstar. So tell me, who wouldn’t fall for that? Just like Brooke, I’m not that fan of jocks too, but who could resist a hottie like Billy? Hehe. I don’t really have any complaints with his character, because just like Brooke’s he also has his own setbacks but I adore his love for his family and by being a true gentleman. So what else could you wish for?!

I also like that just the first and fourth book, this story isn’t composed of so many characters that’s why all of them can easily be tracked.

And I save the best for last. I really am so in love with the ending. It was so romantic and it almost made me cry.

This story can also be read standalone, but I really recommend you read the first book first 😉

    I do like the sound of this one, but yes, why do couples have to make it more complicated than it should be. 🙂

    Nice review, Vanessa!

    It’s fun to jump in blind sometimes and not read the blurb :). I like it when in series like this you already met the the main character in the previous book(s). I can get annoyed at those miscommunication type of conflicts as well, they can be so frustrating. They both sound like interesting characters and I am glad you enjoyed this one :).

      Totally! But even if this story has that annoying and frustrating conflict, I’m still glad that I enjoyed this one.
