Physical therapist Jessica Hart has learned her lesson: Never date professional athletes. She’s been down that road, and barely recovered after the relationship crashed and burned. Then Jessica meets Gavin King. An All-Star slugger with chiseled good looks, Gavin was traded to the Sonics because he hurt his knee sliding into second, and now his future is in her hands. Gavin’s no bad boy—but he’s tempting enough to make Jessica think twice about all her rules.
Gavin is trying to find a comfortable routine. If he wants his old life back, he must take it easy, stay out of the limelight, and keep his distance from gorgeous redheaded physical therapists. The thing is, Gavin isn’t the kind of guy to sit on his ass and let other people pull his weight. And when he sees something he wants, he can’t help but fight for it, even if it means risking everything, even if it only lasts a single moment: like one kiss from Jessica.
The Heat of the Moment is a sweet, sexy and endearing baseball romance.
Jessica Hart is a physical therapist for the Jersey Sonics. She has a strict rule, never get involved with her clients which was great until she meets Gavin King.
Gavin was at the top of his game until a knee injury might destroy his chances of ever returning at top performance again. Now he just has to keep his head down, take it easy and leave the fiery red headed Jessica be. That is much easier said than done because the pull between them is absolutely magnetic.
Gavin is a strong alpha character with just the right amount of vulnerability. He’s not one to sit easily on the side lines.
Jessica is a woman who knows herself and what she wants. She grew up knowing a brother had her back. Jessica builds a friendship with Gavin that evolves, it isn’t an insta-love situation, making it realistic and pulling you deeper into the story.
The Heat of the Moment was a great contemporary romance. I enjoyed watching the story unfold. If you are a sports romance fan, then The Heat of the Moment is the perfect book for you.
