Intro: I really was excited about this one. Baseball is one of my things. I don't love it as much as hockey or auto racing but it's a great past time when hockey's over and racing is just starting. And I did like this one but there were some things about it that just…confused me. Also, the cover was mighty pretty.
Heroine: Darcy-Mistaken identity plotlines very rarely work for me. They just come across as too unbelievable. But with Darcy it wasn’t quite as unbelievable as usual because she kind of tripped and fell into it. I really did end up liking her as well. She was a lively heroine and I could completely identify with her.
Hero: Chase-It was one of those situations where I liked him but I had some serious issues with him and I ended up wanting to strangle him with a shoelace. He was the typical playboy athlete hero. He was sometimes way too far up his own butt and he did some things that even this girl --who likes heroes who do bad things—found unforgivable.
Chemistry-I really liked Chase and Darcy together even through the whole Darcy is Lydia thing. But what Chase did when he found out about the whole Darcy/Lydia thing was just wrong and I couldn’t believe Darcy forgave him just like that. I would have made him grovel. For a good long time.
Ending Babble: Sports series are rare reads for me. Odd considering how much I love them. But this one will be added to my list because I loved this one. I got so emotionally invested and I love the angst.
