REVIEW - Playing Fast (New York Saints #5) by Melanie Scott

The Book
Release Date: 30 August 2016
Goodreads Link


When baseball bad-boy Finn Castro raises one eyebrow too many, the Saints send him down to the minors. He’ll have to earn back his major-league dreams with the Sarasota Springs Preachers. Finn’s certainly never claimed to be a man of the cloth, and cleaning up his act isn’t going to be easy with stunning Eva Harlowe at the heart of the team’s administration…

Eva knows having a crush on Finn Castro is about as sensible as wishing for an eighth day of the week, but seeing the gorgeously muscled player in person melts her resolve. If she’s planning to leave baseball at the end of the season, a hot fling could be a fantasy home run. But when no-strings sex begins to feel like a perfect partnership, will Finn and Eva choose the love of the game or real life together?

My Opinion  5 STARS
**My thanks to NetGalley and St Martin's Press for providing me with a free copy for an honest review**

We met Finn in the previous book with Amelia and Oliver where Finn acts really badly and loses his place with The Saints.

Finn has now been relegated to the minors in order that he either learns to behave himself or he is out to Baseball.  He never figured that it would turn out to be the best thing in the world for him.

Eva is a strong cookie who is the good girl next door who raised her sisters when their parents died from when she was only eighteen

The chemistry between the two starts from when they meet and sizzles all the way until the last pages, they can't keep their hands off each other even though Eva says from the beginning that they can only last for a season.

The book can be read as a stand alone, however i think that reading the previous books just gives you a better background knowledge of the other people involved and of Finn previously.  This way you can really measure just how much he changes.

A decent read.
