Baseball isn’t supposed to be a game of life and death…
The summer that Chase Stern entered my life, I was seventeen. The daughter of a legend, the Yankees were my family, their stadium my home, their dugout my workplace. My focus was on the game. Chase... he started out as a distraction. A distraction with sex appeal poured into every inch of his six foot frame. A distraction who played like a god and partied like a devil.
I tried to stay away. I couldn’t.
Then, the team started losing. Women started dying. And everything in my world broke apart.

I’ll start off by saying I love Alessandra’s writing. Her Deanna Madden series is one I liked a lot. This one though, I don’t think it was for me. I think it’s me just because of how many other people really like it.
This book had a bit of everything all in one. There was mystery, romance, 2nd chance love, thriller all set in a sports (baseball) setting. The story is told in dual POV for those that like that. There’s also cheating for those who don’t like that. I’m usually not picky about that though. I don’t care one way or the other if it’s in books but with this one, it bothered me a lot.
The first half of this book was great. The pace was nice and the story was good. I liked them as a couple. Then the second half happened and it went down hill for me there. I still do not understand the women dying part of the story. I don’t get why it’s in this book. It seemed so out of place and not needed. Alessandra does stories with very unexpected endings so well that this is her thing. With this one though, I’m left with a lot of WTF questions.
Did I like the book? Yeah, it’s ok.
Would I recommend it? Yes
Will it be a favorite of mine? Probably not.
I settled on 3.5 stars for this book. I think if the ending would of been as strong as the beginning and the mystery part of the book been a little more understandable and not so out of place I would of rated this higher.
