USA TODAY BESTSELLING authors, Terri E. Laine and A.M. Hargrove bring a new full-length standalone, Contemporary Romance novel.

Our relationship starts off like a bad joke.
A gorgeous guy walks into a bar and says to me, “Do you want to F#ck?” and damn if I don’t say yes.
And that should have been it—the punch line.
We never should’ve seen each other again.
Only we do.
Turns out sex on a stick, Ryder Wilde, is more than an orgasm-giver. He’s a player. Not just any either. A Major League Baseball pitcher. And damn, I want to be his catcher.
Except he doesn’t want to play any games or follow my rules:
No relationships.
No falling in love.
Because he’s used to winning … and wants to claim me as his prize.
His mission is to own me, body and soul, no matter how much I push him away.
Powerless to stop him, I can only hope my heart isn’t another casualty of his fastball.


I enjoyed this book overall. However, I did find it a little difficult to connect with Gina. She was a little hard to engage with, the way she kept pushing Ryder away, and then bringing him in again. I was a lot more able to connect with Ryder, and I think at times I was frustrated with Gina as I could tell Ryder was sincere, but she was struggling. I do think the back and forth of the relationship made it a little harder for me to fully connect with it and with them.

I thought there were issues with Gina and her past that possibly were not fully addressed and explored. I felt like they were the reason she pushed Ryder away, but that they may not have been entirely resolved. I felt Ryder was 100% engaged in the relationship, where she remained about 95% involved with them as a couple.

The scene, without being too spoilery after their first sexual encounter was really heartfelt and emotional. But at other times, I thought the dialog was a little uneven, which messed with the pacing for me.

I do recommend this overall, but do feel that there were issues with the pacing that kept me from being able to totally engage with the story and the characters.

One day, on her way home from work as a sales manager, USA Today bestselling author, A. M. Hargrove, realized her life was on fast forward and if she didn't do something soon, it would be too late to write that work of fiction she had been dreaming of her whole life. So she made a quick decision to quit her job and reinvented herself as a Naughty and Nice Romance Author.
She fancies herself all of the following: Reader, Writer, Dark Chocolate Lover, Ice Cream Worshipper, Coffee Drinker (swears that coffee, chocolate, and ice cream should be added as part of the USDA food groups), Lover of Grey Goose (and an extra dirty martini), #WalterThePuppy Lover, and if you’re ever around her for more than five minutes, you’ll find out she’s a non-stop talker.
Terri E. Laine, USA Today bestselling author, left a lucrative career as a CPA to pursue her love for writing. Outside of her roles as a wife and mother of three, she’s always been a dreamer and as such became an avid reader at a young age.
In her early years, she and her best friend would tell each other stories over the phone when they were bored. They called them their "soap operas" and generally revolved around whatever boy they liked at the time.
Many years later, she got a crazy idea to write a novel and set out to try to publish it. With over a dozen titles published under various pen names, the rest is history. Her journey has been a blessing, and a dream realized. She looks forward to many more memories to come.
