Review: Caught by You by Jennifer Bernard

Months of alternately flirting and bickering with Kilby Catfish catcher Mike Solo just turned into the hottest kiss of Donna MacIntyre's life—and that's a major league complication. Any hint of scandal could keep her from getting her son back from her well-connected ex. Then Mike comes up with a game-changing idea: a marriage proposal that could help win her case—even as it jeopardizes her heart.

Mike hasn't been able to get the gorgeous, gutsy redhead out of his fantasies. The least he can do is fix the mess he helped create. Yet their engagement is quickly becoming about a lot more than doing the right thing. Because after swearing he'd never risk love again, Mike has found a passion that puts all his emotions in play, and a woman he'll go to bat for again and again.

Terri's Thoughts

I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher HarperCollins via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.  The expected publication date is December 29th, 2015.

Bernard is not a new author to me.  I read one of her stories in another series quite some time ago and enjoyed it.  I thought it was time to read another one of her stories to see if I still felt the same.  This one focused around baseball players instead of firefighters.

This story is the second in the series however can be read as a stand alone.  I will warn that there are quite a few references to the first story so you may want to read in order.  That being said, it did not make this one hard to understand, more so made me curious about what happened in the first story.

What the Jeter?

This story was full of funny moments.  Not the least of which was the use of what the Jeter.  This sounded like something my friends and I would do and had me in stiches.  I also liked that Donna was spunky and a jokester.  The way she tried to curb her need to joke and have fun but simply couldn't stem that side of her personality.

Mike himself wasn't so bad.  All hot and dreamy and of course as is the case most of the time, the kind of guy every girl dreams off physically and emotionally.

As is also standard in these stories is the hot and heavy scenes between the two.  I almost started counting the number of closets the two got in to as it seemed to be a habit of theirs! 

Althogether this was a good read.  It delivered on the romance and steam all in one.  I would recommend to anyone who enjoys this genre.

Random thought:  I noticed in this story that the characters had nicknames for each other.  He called her Red and she called him Solo.  I kept waiting for Cup to be introduced.  Anyone have the song in their head now?  You are welcome!
