Third baseman Drake Schultz is the undisputed bad boy of the New York Kings. So it's no surprise when Major League Baseball suspends him for taking performance-enhancing drugs. Furious with their superstar, the front office issues an ultimatum: either work with their sober companion or kiss the rest of his quarter-billion-dollar contract goodbye. Cocky and arrogant, Drake resists being saddled with a live-in babysitter—even one he's insanely attracted to.
Drake is Eva Sloane's first celebrity client as a substance abuse counselor, and she knows she's in trouble when he starts tempting her at every turn. The way he looks at her is as hot as sin, but she refuses to become his new drug of choice. Slowly, she helps him realize he has to face the demons from his past and heal his tortured spirit before he can even think about satisfying any craving he has for her.
My Review:Another Collette book! Her writting style is killer, and her characters hot!
Drake is this sexy pro baseman. Hes got everything he could want, and then he screws it up. Doing drugs did him no good. Now he needs to get his act together and deal with a live-in babysitter or get to the unemployed line. Ugh Drake is cocky but you'll eventually look past that, and like him.
Eva is Drakes new baby sitter! Yup she just watch him and counsles him. Helps him deal with giving up and getting over drugs. She doesn't take crap and I loved that about her. She gets to know him and help him get through a lot. The emotions are there and you'll feel it all the way. Once that's all taken care of, then Eva will give into the attraction between them.
The story and building of the attraction between them is lovely. Its one of the best stories I've read and Collette is really talented. So go get her books, I know I'll be waiting to read more from her.
