Prima ballerina Noelle Nelson needs to recover from her injury and return to the stage. She won't consider failure…or be distracted by baseball's resident bad boy, Jace Monroe. His tattoos, wicked smile and deliciously athletic body might drive her crazy, but a media frenzy is the last thing this good girl needs.
Jace is sick with fear that his own injury will never heal, but he's not about to let anyone notice, especially the gorgeous blonde dancer he loves to infuriate. He's pushing himself past his physical capacity, putting his future at risk. Still, when it comes to making a play for Noelle, Jace is in scoring position—and he's not going to back down!Sometimes, you just want to read a romance. Harlequin and Regina Kyle are go-to for me when I just want to read something that I will enjoy, that will have a good storyline, and will bring the heat and the fun.
This was an enemies to lovers, sort of...Noelle and Jace don't have the best 1st or 2nd impressions of one another, a fact that requires her to keep apologizing to him...badly. But their chemistry is off the charts, his efforts to woo her are charming and you definitely see where the appeal is for her.
The author resolved the issues with their injuries in a way that worked and left me feeling like it was a HEA in which you believed in the future for the characters. And, sometimes, what you need is a well-written story with heat, likable characters and a HEA you believe in...and this is what you get.
I recommend this book.
