{ arc } review || THE HEAT IS ON by Katie Rose

Loveswept | January 5, 2016 | Contemporary Romance
Boys of Summer, book 4


When veteran catcher Connor Jackson gets traded to the New Jersey Sonics, he welcomes the opportunity to possibly cap his career with a World Series ring in his home state. But there’s another reason Connor is glad things have come full circle. In pursuit of hardball glory, he left behind his college sweetheart, the one girl he could never forget. Seeing her again stirs up long-lost desires . . . and this time, he’s determined not to strike out.

A divorced mother of four, Tracy Coleman no longer aspires to gossip-mag glam—but she’ll make an exception for a date with Connor. Their chemistry is hotter than ever, and being alone with him is more seductive than she anticipated. Who could blame her for leaving out a little detail like the kids? Now all she has to do is come clean and convince the man of her dreams that they—Connor, Tracy, and her children—have a future together.

{ review } .

I have been on a second chance kick, and this one, while a bit fluffy at times, was a cute second chance romance. I have enjoyed every one of these BOYS OF SUMMER books, and this one was no different. It did have a slightly different feel to it, however, whether it was due to the 'age' of Connor, or the life of Tracy. Regardless, I loved Tracy and Connor's second chance, and Connor's fierce desire to give Tracy's kids what they were so clearly lacking -- granted, I did feel that her ex's role was a bit over-the-top. I loved that Connor chose to go 'home', breaking his no-trade clause, and that Tracy, upon hearing he was returning, had the giddiness but tried to hide it. Definitely a favorite of the series, even if it had a semi-lighter feel to it.
