The Heart of the Game (Tavonesi Series #6)


Cody Bond needs a permanent spot on the Giant’s baseball team. He’s a talented catcher, but knows chances like this are one in a million. So when one of his potential teammates needs a favor, he’s not about to turn him down—even if it means playing polo for his kid sister. He’s so out of his league - in more ways than one.

What could a professional baseball player possibly know about polo? Zoe Tavonesi takes it very seriously, so the surprise replacement to her team has her nerves on edge. But, as she watches his lithe athletic movements on a horse, and feels the harried attraction between them, she can’t help but thank her lucky stars for last-minute stand-ins.

“The Heart of the Game” isn’t the first in this series, but it stands alone just fine, and handily entices the reader to scramble for the “One Click” button. With a hunkalicious professional baseball player and a sultry Roman socialite, it’s an entrancing tale of opposites attract that leaves the reader searching for something to fan themselves with. With intriguing plots and sub-plots, there is plenty to entertain and move the story forward at a brisk pace. Lovers of this genre will truly appreciate this masterful tale and hunger for the rest in the bunch. Well played, Ms. Aares!
