My Review

A sexy sports superstar discovers his body isn’t the only thing that needs healing in this newest Stardust, Texas novel from New York Times bestselling author Lori Wilde.

With major league good looks and talent, Dallas Gunslingers relief pitcher Axel Richmond was living the good life. Even if the roar of the crowd could never distract him from the loss of his young son. But now with an injured shoulder and his career on the line, Axel is stuck recuperating at a ranch in Stardust, Texas . . . striking out only with his gorgeous physical therapist.

Kasha Carlyle has one week to get Axel back in action or she can kiss her much-needed job with the Gunslingers goodbye. And any chance to seek custody of the orphaned half-sister she never knew existed. She quickly learns that Axel’s guarded heart also needs healing . . . requiring all kinds of sneaky plays and sexy moves in extra innings.

A pro-baseball player, Axel, facing a risky surgery to repair his injured shoulder…with no guarantees of success.

A physical therapist, Kasha, desperately needing a job on probation with the Dallas Gunslingers is faced with a decision that might break or make her career.

Given the task to oversee and maintain Axel’s therapy choice, Kasha’s career and livelihood lay on her and Axel’s success. The chemistry explodes but professionalism is an utmost importance for both Axel and Kasha.

This is a building romance where friendship and emotional connection play a major role in bond that develops. The couple is sweet with heartfelt emotions that leads to a very charming and entertaining read.
