Megan O’Donnell has everything under control.
Everything – including single motherhood, her job as a physical therapist, and anything else that life serves up. She has to, really, since her husband walked out on her and their son when Sammy was born with cerebral palsy – taking along with him her trust in men and most of her faith in God, too.
Productive and resilient, she’s even at the helm of All-Stars Sports Day, an end-of-the-summer event she’s organizing for special needs kids like Sammy. But her planning meeting is hijacked when MacNeill Hattaway, former mega-star pitcher for the Tri-state Hawks, shows up—with a news crew, no less! It seems Mac is out for the season recovering from an injury, and sure, his celebrity might help. But it looks like a self-serving publicity stunt to Megan who is well aware of Mac’s reputation as a womanizer.
She’s forced to work with him. Then finds she likes him. And Mac loves her…and her son. But what will happen when their pasts throw a curveball in their game of love?
Cafe Lily's Review:
I enjoyed everything about this book. It is a beautiful love story with characters that drew me in and held my attention all the way through. You can't help but fall in love with Mac, who takes a special interest in Megan's son, Sammy.
Mac finds Megan much harder to win over, though he quickly finds himself falling head over heels in love with her. This is one of those stories that will make you sigh out loud, especially if you're a romantic at heart. And while it *is* romantic, this story is not filled with sticky sweet moments. The characters have some very real issues and challenges, and find themselves at some tough crossroads.
The baseball theme worried me at first, since I'm not a huge sports fan but the author keeps it in the background, interjecting just enough to make Mac believable. If you haven't read any of Cathy's books yet, start with this one!
