Win the game. Lose
Everyone knows who I am and that I could have any female fan I want.
That’s supposed to be the “perk” of playing left field for the Boston
Renegades. But I don’t want just any woman; I want her.
She should be just another face in the crowd, but I can’t stop thinking about
the one night we spent together-and her look of regret the morning after.
Because Saylor Blackwell is the kind of woman who haunts a man. Smart, sexy as
hell, and one of the best managers in the business. She’s every ballplayer’s
dream woman. And I’d do anything to make things right with her.
This was a grand slam for Heidi McLaughlin…probably one of my favorites by her, and I have read just about everything she has written. The synopsis doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of the book or the characters. Grand Slam deserves a lot more than 5 stars!!!!!
From the very first page, the story took off, and had my attention the entire time. I was up well into the night reading this one. Travis and Saylor are incredibly complex characters. With each chapter, more is revealed about them. The two shared an unforgettable night with one another years before, and they have tried to forget it, but they can’t. Travis is completely off-limits to Saylor. She works for the PR company that represents him, and affairs with their clients are strictly prohibited. Saylor cannot lose her job as she is a single parent. They have tried to avoid one another, but that changes when he sees her in the same bar he is in. He knows something is wrong, but of course, she doesn’t let him in. Both don’t realize that each will become the other’s savior.
Travis finds himself in a position that threatens everything, his career and his personal life. Saylor is doing whatever it takes to get him out of the horrible situation. As she is trying to save him, she is also trying to save herself. Her daughter’s father has decided he wants custody of her, and Saylor can’t lose Lucy!
As I mentioned earlier, with each chapter, I saw more depth to each character. Travis isn’t just a player. As he spends more time with Lucy, he melted my heart even more. He loved her as much as he loved Saylor, and he would do whatever it took to keep both of them. I love a man that loves his family!!! And, his sense of humor made him more irresistible. I came to love Saylor as much as I did Travis. She has worked incredibly hard to make a good life for her and her daughter. It hasn’t always been easy, but she has done whatever it took to give Lucy a normal life. She is certainly someone I would want in my corner if I was in trouble. And, I save the best for last, sweet Lucy. She is a precocious, sweet princess who melted my heart, just like she did to Travis.
McLaughlin included a lot about the game of baseball, but she also included the sometimes dark side that athletes face….women who attempt take advantage of their wealth. She also illustrated how quickly the public can turn on celebrities. I think the saddest part was how some members of a team can turn on others if it affects them negatively. However, most importantly, this is a book that also illustrates loyalty and fighting for those you love. Outstanding read!!!!
