Pamela Aares ….. Fielder’s Choice Description:
When love’s the game, you can’t play it safe…
All-Star shortstop Matt Darrington has more than a problem. His wife died, and now he’s juggling a too-smart-for-her-britches six-year-old and the grueling pace of professional baseball. Worse, his daughter is mom shopping. When they explore a local ranch, she decides the beautiful, free-spirited tour guide is premium mom material. Matt thinks the sexy guide looks like Grade-A trouble.
Alana Tavonesi loves her cosmopolitan life in Paris. But when she inherits the renowned Tavonesi Olive Ranch, she has to return to California and face obligations she never wanted. Selling the place is her first instinct, but life at the ranch begins to crack her open, exposing the dreams hidden inside her heart.
On a lark she leads a ranch tour, where she meets Matt Darrington. His physical power and a captivating sensual appeal fire her in a way no man ever has, but he has a kid—and being a stepmom is a responsibility Alana will never be ready for. Still . . . she can’t keep her mind or her hands off him.
When Matt’s daughter goes missing from a kid’s camp at the ranch, Alana organizes the search effort, knowing from experience the areas a bright child would be drawn to explore. As she and Matt work together to search for the little girl, Alana discovers that father and daughter have won her heart. Yet it may be too late for love…
I had lots of fun reading Fielde’rs Choice by Pamela Aares. The settings and characters are all so real, it felt like I was there experiencing everything with friends. You also get to revisit and see how the characters from previous books in the Heart of the Game Series are doing. (which I haven’t read, but am now itching to do so)
Alana is rather a free spirit, she is enjoying her life and freedom, so she wonders why her grandmother left her the ranch, but your elders know best (this I have been told all my life ;-)), so she sets off to explore her inheritance.
Matt is a baseball player for the San Francisco Giants. When he takes a tour of the farm with his daughter Sophie there’s an instant attraction between him and Alana. You can almost see the sparks between them.
Matt’s daughter is a character in herself, she is a bright young girl that Alana adores but she isn’t ready to be a step mom.
Alana and Matt are all wrong for each other, but the sexual attraction between them is boiling hot!
The electric windmill was a fun read, and it looked like the author researched it pretty well. It’s a read I would recommend to anyone. And I can’t wait for the next book.
