Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Sports, Romance
When a beautiful brunette driver meets Nashville Slammers catcher, Sawyer McBain, at the airport, he figures it’s his lucky day. Sure, he’s usually pretty guarded around people, especially after what happened with his ex, but he can definitely enjoy the car ride. Until she passes his apartment…and keeps driving. All of a sudden the woman seems a lot less like romance material and a lot more like a kidnapper. What gives?
Slammers executive Addison Carlisle needs one little favor. Sure, she may have kinda maybe kidnapped one of her professional baseball players, but it’s for a really good cause. She desperately needs someone high-profile to auction off that night for the multiple sclerosis society she’s chairing, but he insists he wants a favor in return.
Soon Addie and Sawyer are trading completely ridiculous I.O.U.s, like being his plus-one to his grandmother’s poker game or keeping each other company at the driving range. But when their agreement goes from flirty to fiery, neither is ready to let their guard down for a shot at love.

Sawyer is a catcher who has recently joined the Nashville Slammers. He is a very private person who is still recovering from an injury and is growing weary of everyone in his life wanting something from him and not him. When he is picked up at the airport by Addie and asked to attend a fundraiser for MS he is about to say no until he realizes that there is nothing in it for Addie besides her desire to help.
Addie has personal reasons for wanting to support the MS fundraiser and although she knows it is wrong to coerce Sawyer she hopes that the ends justify the means. Her payment for his attendance is two favors but she never expected where these favors would lead.
Sawyer has trust issues because of his past and believes that Addie is too good to be true. Their journey isn’t without some drama but this sweet and sexy story doesn’t disappoint.
