Second shots and fake dates, what can go wrong?
I screwed up.
Considering the team is laden with controversy, adding to the rumor mill wasn’t my intention, especially since this is my second shot at the majors.
As the Boston Bears’ first basemen, my job consists of more than winning games. I’m tasked with winning over the scorned fans.
I thought my batting average would speak for itself.
I was wrong.
When my off-the-field actions collide with my on-the-field goals, I have no choice but to devise the persona of being a committed man.
The task is impossible until I meet my neighbor, Hailey LaCroix. Goal-driven and refined, she’s the perfect woman to help pull off this ruse.
I need a fake relationship. She needs an exclusive interview.
The very ones I refuse to do.
I didn’t earn the Heartbreak Hitter title by being a saint. There are reasons I keep my past a secret and stay single.
But there’s more to Hailey LaCroix than her good looks and smoking hot curves. She’s pure and real. She makes me believe I have more to offer than swinging a bat.
And the longer we stay together, the more I want to confess all of my secrets.
The very ones that will destroy me.
Heartbreak Hitter is a fake relationship/sports romance inspired by Park Avenue Player.
