Determined to overcome a dark and tragic past, college student Everly Wallace is only months away from earning her degree in physical therapy. She’s consumed with school, caring for her ailing grandfather, and figuring out how to pay the next bill. The last thing she wants is a relationship, but it just might be the one thing she needs.
Major League pitcher Cole Parker hasn’t fought for anything in his life. He went from a privileged upbringing to a multimillion dollar All-Star career. But when his pitching shoulder starts to give him trouble at only twenty-four years old, he faces the possibility of his injury becoming public knowledge and costing him everything.
In a desperate bid to save his career, Cole decides to hire someone to treat his injury, someone who will keep things off the record and out of the media. He finds the perfect solution in Everly. As mysterious as she is beautiful, she provides an enticing distraction from his pain. Soon, physical therapy is the last thing on his mind.
When an act of betrayal brings the truths they both fear to light, Cole will have to fight for the first time in his life…not just for his career, but for Everly’s love.
Desperate to keep his injured arm out of the news, Cole Parker seeks help from his brother. He will go to any means necessary to get better in time to sign a contract to allow him to keep playing baseball in Atlanta. In order to do so, his brother asks a favor from one of his students that is about to graduate and become a physical therapist.
Everly accepts the job because she truly needs the money to help out her Grandpa and his home healthcare. What she didn't count on was the feelings that she encounters from the very beginning. Could major league baseball player, Cole Parker, seriously have feelings for a lowly waitress? Or is he merely acting to keep up the appearance of ‘dating’ so news of his arm doesn't make it on ESPN? Maybe this job was bigger than her...maybe she is in over her head. But she might as well enjoy it while it lasts.
I just love when an author comes out of their comfort zone that he or she is used to and ventures into something totally different for them. In this case, Thomas is an author that is used to writing YA Fantasy. But let me tell you something...this lady nailed the whole NA genre. This book was so great and so addictive.
