Can Madame Eve’s special brand of magic ease the pain and tear down the walls surrounding the hearts of three lonely people?
My Rating: 4.5 out of 5 Stars
Wild Pitch is one of those hot novellas you can't stand to put down till you've reached the very end. I must say, to use a baseball colloquialism, Karyn Gerrard and Gayl Taylor have hit it out of the park with this.
Two women looking to forget past pains with a younger man who had just been handed one? It's the perfect premise for a night of passion never to be repeated. But is there something more behind the list and alcohol?
Best friends Connie and Nicole are on a scouting expedition at the Cougar Cave. Connie is celebrating her recent painful divorce from her longtime husband while Nicole is struggling to get over the sudden death of her high school sweetheart and husband. What better way to forget betrayal and abandonment than with a night of no-strings sex? Granted, Nicole thought Connie had just paid for her but it seems like her friend wants in on the action, too. But will the hunk across the room agree to it?
Barrett wants to escape his pain. After years of sacrifice, he's told he doesn't quite cut it for the major leagues. What was supposed to be a night of pleasure has now become a therapy of sorts. He wants to feel desired, needed again. He just doesn't know if this dating service can give him what he needs.
Madame Eve has practically guaranteed this night of pleasure. This invisible woman never shows, however, the magic she weaves with the 1Night Stand dating service can be found throughout the story. In the midst of all the erotic heat, one person realizes who a perfect new partner could be while two find a love they never thought possible.
I'm glad this was a quick read because I couldn't stop! Snuck in between stuff I needed to do, I thankfully got to a satisfyingly sweet ending fast. And the writing, I can't say enough. The two authors blended so perfectly they wrote as one single voice, a richer one than some others I've come across. And all those baseball sayings and innuendos! Loved it!
There's a lot of fun to be found between the pages of Wild Pitch and I can guarantee that Karyn Gerrard and Gayl Taylor will give you a great, fantasy-filled read. Any new books from this duo, sign me up!
