Love Bats Last (The Tavonesi Series Book 1) by Pamela Aares

A stormy night changes their lives forever…

In LOVE BATS LAST, (The Heart of the Game, #1), the baseball diamond isn’t the only field for all-star player Alex Tavonesi; he also runs his family’s prestigious vineyard. What he can’t seem to run is his love life. He’s closing in on the perfect vintage and the perfect game, but so far the perfect woman has eluded him.

Veterinarian Jackie Brandon is eluding her aristocratic past and memories of a soccer star who jilted her just before their wedding. She devotes herself to a marine mammal rescue center on the northern California coast, where hundreds of seals and sea lions are washing up dead.

A chance meeting in a midnight storm brings Alex and Jackie together to rescue a stranded whale. Watching her work, he realizes she’s the passionate, courageous woman he thought he’d never find—he just has to overcome her deep distrust of jocks. Jackie’s passion and courage lead her to discover what’s killing the sea mammals. The culprits want to silence her, and Alex is the only one standing in their way. What will he sacrifice to save the woman he loves?

Thrown By Love (Book 2, Chloe and Scotty)

That Boy (That Boy Series Book 1) by Jillian Dodd

You know, being friends with two cute boys does have its benefits. 

There’s Danny. Danny is a golden boy in every way. He has dreamy blue eyes and blonde hair that always looks perfect, even when it’s windblown or been stuck under a football helmet. He’s the boy every girl crushes on. The boy I get into trouble with, the boy I fight with, the hot quarterback no girl can resist, not even me. Being with Danny is like being on an adventure. He has a bright, contagious smile and abs to die for. He’s pretty much irresistible.

Equally crush worthy is Phillip. Adorable, sweet Phillip, who I have known since birth.  Phillip has dark hair, a perfect smile, brown eyes, and the sexiest voice I have ever heard. He’s the boy I talk to every night before I go to sleep. The boy who rescues me, the boy who can read my mind, the boy who is always there for me, the boy who tries to keep me out of trouble, the boy who irritatingly keeps getting hotter, and whose strong arms always seem to find their way around me.  And when he gives me that grin, I can never say no.

One boy will give me my very first kiss.
One boy will teach me to make out.
One boy will take me to prom.
And finally, one boy will ask me to marry him.
They will both be my best friends.
But only one of them will be the boy I fall in love with.
Only one of them is That Boy.

Love Surfaced by Michelle Lynn and Unforeseen Editing

The equations are simple.

Piper Ashby + Brad Ashby = Twin Siblings
Brad Ashby + Tanner McCain = Best Friends
Piper Ashby + Tanner McCain = Off limits

Tanner and I abided by the rules. We stayed on our designated sides of the relationship circle.

Ignoring swarming butterflies.
Brushing off skipped heartbeats.
Settling on lingering stares.

Here’s the secret … a hand extended over that invisible line once, exponentially changing the equation. I was convinced we could make our relationship work until Tanner broke the trust he embedded in me from the age of seven.

One deceit of mega proportions and the relationship we built for that short month vanished. I swore never to speak to him again and it’s worked. Until now—two years later, when my brother’s wedding places me face-to-face with the best man—Tanner McCain.

Leaving one equation to be solved. Can love surface twice?

Play With Me (Grover Beach Team Book 1) by Anna Katmore

In 2013 this book was published under the author’s pen name Piper Shelly.

Hunter grinned but he didnt seem as happy as the guy next to me. More like, he knew crap was about to fall.
He cant play when someones watching him, Justin almost sang into my ear. Totally screws up then.
But you all are watching him, I pointed out.
At the back of the room, someone laughed. Yeah, but were not girls.

Ryan Hunters parties are legend. And tonight shes going to be there.

Liza Matthews has been in love with her best friend since kindergarten. Theyve done it all, even slept in each others bed. But theyve never kissed. Weeks away from her seventeenth birthday, Liza hopes that soon things would change between them. But when Tony Mitchell comes home after summer soccer camp, his mind is focused on someone else. And worse, that new girl is a soccer player.

Fighting for her love, Liza gets carried away and makes a stupid decision: Without the least bit of talent or passion for the sport, she opts for the co-ed soccer team.

The tryouts are hell, the first match ends bloody, and the morning after the selection party she wakes up in the worst place possiblein the arms of the captain of the soccer team. The hottest guy in school. Ryan Hunter.

“This is undoubtedly one of the best coming of age stories available today!” -InD’Tale Magazine

This is a really short book. You will probably read it in 3 to 6 hours without a chance to catch your breath while turning the pages…

If you’re unsure whether this is the right book for you, go ahead and read the first half for free before you make up your mind.
