On the field and off the field, bartender Jeanine Jewell plays, collecting one-night stands like baseball cards. She doesn’t need a man, except to curl her toes and make her scream. She’s learned the hard way that the one who cares more is the one who gets hurt—and the last thing she can handle is getting hurt, or having anyone discover her shameful secret.
Scoring women is easy for catcher Kirk Kennedy—they don’t call him “Catch and Release” for nothing. He never goes back for a repeat performance. Being traded to a new city is an opportunity for new adventures—until he runs into Jeanine and she refuses to go home with him.
Intrigued, Kirk is determined to catch the elusive blonde and keep her to himself. When he proposes a wingman to wingwoman friends without benefits relationship, he’s surprised she accepts.
The no benefits clause soon falls by the wayside when neither Jeanine or Kirk can resist their explosive chemistry together. But despite the sparks between the sheets, they both refuse to acknowledge they’re anything more than friends.
Everything changes when Kirk discovers his past is the one Jeanine is hiding from.
Trigger Warning: The heroine was sexually abused by her foster father and has flashbacks.
I rated this book 5*****’s
The best book of Ms. Rachelle Ayala yet for me
Kirk and Jeanine stories will blown you away. Playing Catch is the best book of Ms. Rachelle Ayala for me. It is next to my first favorite book of her Hidden Under Her Heart.
This book is so intense. It is twisted and so amazing. Will two broken souls healed the power of love? I read this book in a day. I cannot put it down. It deals with a topic that is unfortunately happening to our society especially with young girls. Reading this book especially Jeanine’s story remind me of a situation while I worked in an orphanage.
The story feels so real to me. It gives me goosebumps. I was also scared. It reminds me of my situation when I was little. This book is an eye-opening. It is so good. Miss Rachelle Ayala did fantastic in this book. I am so glad that Kirk and Jeanine has a happy ending. These two deserved each other’s love. Their desire is insatiable. It is also a beautiful book about friendship.
What a perfect book to deal with difficult situations in our community and family. This book deserves more than five-star rating to me. You will be amaze.
