New York Times bestselling author Lori Wilde welcomes you to Stardust, Texas . . . where dreams come true and love is always right around the corner...
Wanted: ghostwriter. Must be female, a baseball fan, and have a great pair of legs.
Ex-pitcher Rowdy Blanton never saw a woman he couldn't conquer or a team he couldn't beat. And now that he's off the field he's ready to tell all about when he played the field. So he chooses Breeanne Carlyle to do the job—she's got the requirements, but more important, there's something about her that makes him want to be a better man.
Convinced there's more to Rowdy than a good fastball, a wicked smile, and a tight pair of pants, Breeanne can't help but be tempted. After all, it's boring always being the good girl, and Rowdy dares her to be just a little bad. The stakes are high, but win or lose, this time Breeanne's breaking all the rules playing the game of love.
Back in the Game by Lori Wilde
Back in the Game gives us a heavy dose of fun and flirty with heart but then you’ve got to add a dollop of paranormal happenings on the side.
Trying to break free on her own terms, Breeanne Carlyle dreams of becoming a published writer. When the hometown hero, ex-pitcher, Rowdy Blanton is looking for a ghost writer for his autobiography Breeanne grabs at the chance.
Rowdy sees that Breeanne brings out the best in him while Breeanne thinks there more to the pegged playboy, bad boy of baseball. Sometimes wishes do come true and sometimes you have to shoot for the stars on your own.
Back in the Game is an easy, enjoyable and entertaining read. Predictable but heartfelt, you won't be disappointed in this hometown romance. In my opinion, the Carlyle family steals the stage, so to speak, but their quirky dynamitic makes for some great and unexpected reading.
