Steal My Heart
Heroes of Seaside Point, Book 3
Realtor Alexa Sharpe enjoys a successful career, confident in her people skills until she must negotiate with a certain, sexy fireman. Never mind that the man could practically melt a glacier, he refuses to stop teasing her which makes any sort of agreement impossible. Both irritated and aroused by his cocky and playful attitude, she skillfully dodges his advances.
Maverick Ryder wears his ladies-man badge with pride, annoying Sexy Lexi every chance he gets. Although attracted to both her brain and her body, a bitter past experience stops him from acting on impulse. Determined not to make a second detrimental mistake, he settles into a routine that keeps them both on their toes.
Eager to strike a deal, the couple finds that teasing leads to full-blown arousal when they are forced into a dangerous game of truth or dare.
ExcerptOfficial uniform, my Aunt Fannie.
Alexa Sharpe balanced a cardboard box on one hip while she tugged at the hem of her t-shirt with her free hand for at least the millionth time in the last twenty minutes, only to expose the tops of her breasts in the process.
Never mind that the unforgiving cotton hugged her body like a second skin, one more good tug and she’d all but fall out. She exhaled a hard breath as she practically stomped across the dirt, headed for the dugout. She knew better than to make a bet with the devil, but those hypnotizing chocolate-dipped gaze and cocky grin had sucked her in. Again. And honestly, when he’d poked her with his silver-tongued pitchfork, pleasure flooded her lust-filled brain and dared her to spoil the fun.
Unable to help herself, she pulled on the garment again, still convinced this was some sort of joke. No one played baseball in clothing this tight. No one in their right mind, anyway. And certainly not her. Determined to remedy the situation, she took a deep calming breath, and approached the dugout, prepared to negotiate.
“Hey, Sexy Lexi.” She shifted the box on her hip and glared at the man who appeared to appreciate the scenery.
“Maverick.” He lifted his gaze and grinned.
“The girls are looking good this morning.”
“Obviously you ordered me the wrong size.”
“You told me to order a small.”
“This is not a small.”
“Yes, it is. Check the tag.”
“Did you wash it first?”
“Then I’m sure it’s a child’s size small.”
He released a hearty laugh. “Don’t be a sore loser just because you couldn’t get your fine little ass up and over that wall.”
As badly as she wanted to argue, he had a valid point. They had made an honest wager a month ago; she bet him that she could climb the endurance wall faster than he, and she didn’t. In fact, he had to boost her over the top. She’d always admired Maverick Ryder’s physique, she just didn’t realize how hard it was to carve it. And at least his t-shirt hugged his bulging muscles as well.
“Fine,” she mumbled as she glanced around the field.
“Where are the boys?”
He frowned. “What boys?”
“Your baseball team,” she drawled.
He gave her a grin that made her want to yank that pesky top over her head and press the girls to his hard chest.
“I don’t coach boys or baseball.”
“Really? Then why do you need a bat girl and why am I here?”
“The Seaside Seagulls are an eight-year-old girls’ softball team. Think you can handle it?”
“Piece of cake.”
“Good, because you’re on.” He gestured with his head across the field where several little girls walked toward them.
Lexi rolled her eyes at his lack of confidence. She was a girl, for Pete’s sake, of course she could entertain his female team.
Unless there was something else Maverick failed to mention.
My Opinion 3 STARS
**My thanks to the author for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**
I was slightly disappointed with this story. I had looked forward to reading this after the end of book two, but the whole story went so quickly and went so fast with everything that I felt that something had been missed out.
Books one is so much better.
Again we had our baddies, but the whole story kinda just felt forced in regards to the suspense. The relationship went from just teasing buddies in the first book to almost fully fledged lovers right off the bat.
We got to see some more of the others, but not too much.
Again, sadly disappointed with this book.
