On the field and off the field, bartender Jeanine Jewell plays, collecting one-night stands like baseball cards. She doesn’t need a man, except to curl her toes and make her scream. She’s learned the hard way that the one who cares more is the one who gets hurt—and the last thing she can handle is getting hurt, or having anyone discover her shameful secret.
Scoring women is easy for catcher Kirk Kennedy—they don’t call him “Catch and Release” for nothing. He never goes back for a repeat performance. Being traded to a new city is an opportunity for new adventures—until he runs into Jeanine and she refuses to go home with him. Intrigued, Kirk is determined to catch the elusive blonde and keep her to himself. When he proposes a wingman to wingwoman friends without benefits relationship, he’s surprised she accepts.
The no benefits clause soon falls by the wayside when neither Jeanine or Kirk can resist their explosive chemistry together. But despite the sparks between the sheets, they both refuse to acknowledge they’re anything more than friends.
Everything changes when Kirk discovers his past is the one Jeanine is hiding from.
Trigger Warning: The heroine was sexually abused by her foster father and has flashbacks.

"A truly extraordinary story that fearlessly demonstrates the transforming power and the breathless wonder that love can bring to a life in need.” - Amber on Goodreads
"I couldn't put down this serious story about love overcoming all." - Chantel on Goodreads
Jeanine shunned relationships and only had one-night-stands. Kirk was the same. With each of them being successful in their careers, they didn’t need anyone to complicate their lives. Even though they didn’t know each other, it was bound to happen. They accidentally meet in a hotel hallway, while each were sneaking away from their hookup of the night. The chemistry was instant. But was it strong enough to veer them off their chosen paths?
This is the third book I have read from this author, and it’s the best one yet. I love her style of writing. You easily get invested in the characters, and want to help them to get their problems out of the way in order to get on with their relationships. Once I started reading, I couldn’t put it down until I finished it.
