She’s a hot mess, and he’s intrigued from the first time he sees her. He’s a sexy former athlete who could have any woman, and she hopes he doesn’t break her heart.
Amery Walsh’s baseball career ended after an injury. He’s been a talent scout for his team and resident playboy since then. But three chance encounters with Lyla Perkins change everything. This tiny, feisty woman flips his world upside-down. Is he ready for a serious relationship?
Lyla Perkins just started her career and so far, it’s an epic disaster. She’s buckling down to prove herself at her job when Amery repeatedly pops into her life, forcing her to consider a more serious relationship. But can a playboy be trusted with her heart?
Hands up if you can totally relate to Lyla? *Raises hand* Lyla is the girl we perceive ourselves to be: clumsy, awkward and accident prone. She is also the girl we want to be as she picks herself up every single time, shakes herself off and continues on with her head held high. Every girl needs an Amery in her life, who sees her as she is and cherishes her rather than make fun of her or walk from her.
We meet Lyla when is having one of the worst days of her life so far. It is a catalogue of incidents that culminate in her falling into Amery. Amery is a baseball scout who feels an instant attraction to Lyla. When their paths cross again he is not about to let her escape a second time.
This was a very funny read and I could totally picture myself in her shoes, having experienced some pretty embarrassing situations myself. There was also an incredible sweetness to this read with the way that Amery is with Lyla. A top read and one that is a must read in my opinion.
