Better Than Perfect by Kristina Mathews
The woman he left behind and the son he never knew are tougher opponents than any he’s met on the field.
Pitcher Johnny “The Monk” Scottsdale has won awards, been named an All-star and has a perfect game to his credit. Known for his legendary control both on and off the field, his pristine public image makes him the ideal person to work with youth players in a preseason minicamp. Except the camp is run by the one woman he can’t forget…the woman who made him a “monk.”
Alice Harrison’s three strikes include an unexpected pregnancy, a marriage of convenience and young widowhood. She once traded her dreams so Johnny could have a chance at making it to the Majors. Johnny comes back into her life just as she’s ready to resign as foundation director and pursue her own dreams of finally earning her teaching credential. Her plans may go on hold, though, depending on the reaction when she confesses she may have kept a major league secret from Johnny and her son.
With the minutes ticking by until Johnny will leave for spring training, they’ll need to let go of the past and work together in order to win the game of love.
I just adore reading about sport romance novels. It has so much passion from the hot athletic man falling in love. This book is so enjoyable that it makes the read so much quicker! Johnny and Alice are so cute together that it makes you want to root for them no matter what. They definitely belong for each other. They were college sweetheart. However, Alice decide to let Johnny go so he could follow his dream. But neither of them have move on. It was a great thing that they did not move on since they definitely love each other. They make it work no matter since they have a child together. There may have drama going on but they stick together since they are meant for each other. It is a cute story that everyone should read it!
