Review & Giveaway: Caught by You by Jennifer Bernard
Caught by You
Love Between the Bases #2
By: Jennifer Bernard
Releasing December 29, 2015
Love comes out of left field in the second novel in USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Bernard's sexy baseball-themed series...
Months of alternately flirting and bickering with Kilby Catfish catcher Mike Solo just turned into the hottest kiss of Donna MacIntyre's life—and that's a major league complication. Any hint of scandal could keep her from getting her son back from her well-connected ex. Then Mike comes up with a game-changing idea: a marriage proposal that could help win her case—even as it jeopardizes her heart.
Mike hasn't been able to get the gorgeous, gutsy redhead out of his fantasies. The least he can do is fix the mess he helped create. Yet their engagement is quickly becoming about a lot more than doing the right thing. Because after swearing he'd never risk love again, Mike has found a passion that puts all his emotions in play, and a woman he'll go to bat for again and again.
He ran a hand through the rough curls at the back of his head. “I have to confess something.” His Catholic-boy conscience had been tugging at him this whole time. “Only a couple of those library books are mine. Mostly they’re my neighbor’s. He’s house-bound, so I pick up books for him.”
Amusement lit up her little heart-shaped face. “Your confession is that you don’t read big piles of books, and that you go to the library for your neighbor? I’m crushed. I was thinking there was a secret genius hidden inside that ripped body.”“Maybe I was trying to impress you. We’ve been dancing around each other all season. Don’t you want to see if there’s anything to this chemistry?”Her eyes widened. “Here? Are you trying to add public indecency to all those fines?”“Just a kiss. One kiss. There’s nothing indecent about a kiss.”She considered that for a long moment, while a pleasant tension rose between them. Finally she seemed to make up her mind. She took a step forward, brushing against him.“Nothing indecent, Priest? I’ve got news for you.”“What’s that?”“There is if you do it right.” And she lifted her mouth to his.
Jennifer Bernard is a graduate of Harvard and a former news promo producer. The child of academics, she confounded her family by preferring romance novels to … well, any other books. She left big city life for true love in Alaska, where she now lives with her husband and stepdaughters. She’s no stranger to book success, as she also writes erotic novellas under a naughty secret name not to be mentioned at family gatherings.
This is book 2 of her Love Between the Bases series and I'd say it's even better then the first. I really loved both Donna and Mike. You kind of get a idea about these two from book one and wonder about their story. No need to wonder anymore. Here it is.
Let me tell you, more then once I found myself laughing at the way that Mike and Donna act with each other. So funny! I know I mentioned more then once about the humor in this book but that's not the only emotion in the book. There are some things that will tug at your heartstrings. What they both are going through is heartbreaking and just plain sad!
More then once in the story I wanted to hug them.
But I think you'll like how they get through it all. I will say that at time the story line seemed a little busy but I was okay with that. That's kind of how my mind works but it might now work for everyone.
As a whole this is a great story and well worth the time it takes to read it. I myself one read All Of Me first. Gives you a better picture of who's who. Plus it's only one other book so that's not that big of a deal. It's not like I'm telling you that you should be reading her other series too!
I am! I really am!!!
Who said that? No clue! Anyway....if you've read Caught by You or any other book by Jennifer Bernard I'd love to hear your thoughts! Thanks for visiting and happy reading!
