Kelsey O'Brien is the definition of a free spirit. She goes where she wants, when she wants, and takes to bed who she wants. And when she arrives back at Grover University after eight months on an African animal preserve, its her newly hunky best friend that has caught her eye. As their friendship turns physical, Kelsey begins to form feelings she swore she'd never have for anyone. But when the past she's not ready to face finds her, she must make a decision whether to stop running, or confront the truth. The first time Clint Bellows laid eyes on Kelsey, he fell hard. Too bad she looked right through him. A year and countless hours in the gym later, she's back and hardly recognizes him and his new body. After a drunken encounter takes them over the line of friendship, Clint agrees to Kelsey's proposal of a benefits-added relationship. Only he's playing for keeps, and is willing to round all of the bases trying to score the self-proclaimed gypsy. She's running from her demons. He's committed to winning her over. Can he catch her in time, or will she be out of his grasp before he can blink?
After reading the first two books in this series I was really excited to read Catching To Win. I wanted Clint and Kelsey’s story so bad. Sadly for me, Catching To Win wasn’t a win for me, if wasn’t a loss either so let’s just say that it was a tie. So why did this one not end up being a homerun? Well it was a variety of things but mainly Kelsey and her attitude. I hated how she not only never takes responsibility for her own actions but how she treats Clint. Clint has loved her since he first saw her, he changed his appearance for her and sadly I think allowed himself to be taken advantage of by Kelsey. There were some other issues I had but they are ones that I am going to choose to not reveal. I know it sounds like I completely hated the book, I didn’t. I think I had such high hopes for this one that when it didn’t live up to my expectations I was disappointed. I don’t know if the author plans on continuing the series further, but if so I would still pick it up and read any future books.
