On assignment in Japan, television personality turned sportscaster Britt Bowen is determined to land an interview with the most reclusive pitcher in baseball and prove she can succeed in a demanding profession. A relationship with a self-absorbed professional athlete is the last thing Britt needs.
Shunning all media attention, former All-Star pitcher Caleb Scott is focused on rebuilding his career in Japan, far from his past and the horrible tragedy that nearly ruined him. Then he meets Britt, who is everything he vowed to avoid.
But it doesn’t take long before Caleb is battling his attraction toward Britt. While she works to uncover his secrets, she can’t deny she’s drawn to his wounded soul. At a crossroads, Caleb must decide if he can break free from his past mistakes and give love another chance. And Britt must choose between advancing her career … or falling in love.
Covering Home by Heidi McCahan
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
First of all, you do not have to be a baseball fan to enjoy this book–I know virtually nothing about the game, and the read was still enjoyable for me. In fact, while baseball is the theme, virtually nothing happens on the field.
This romance is exactly what one would expect from a sweet, simple, clean romance. Nothing offensive is included, and the end is never in question. There are a few bumps along the way, but nothing too terrible. While reading this book, the reader is able to escape present reality and be swept away in a romance. This is not an earth-shattering story, but it is well-written.
The thing I appreciate most about this book is that the author writes very well, and she keeps everything clean and appropriate. All too often, authors are unable to accomplish both things in one book. While the storyline was not completely captivating at times for me, I think the author’s writing style is easy to read at all times.
I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
