    "Maybe she needs a cause to fight for." Hard to Lose is the fourth book in the Play Hard Series. A series based on a family of sports agents, each book in the series is full of passion and heart. Chase Kinkade has been on the sidelines watching her sisters find their match and all she can do is keep working hard to achieve her professional goals. When the opportunity comes for her to follow up on a former recruit that joined the military instead of signing on to play professional ball, she go "Maybe she needs a cause to fight for." Hard to Lose is the fourth book in the Play Hard Series. A series based on a family of sports agents, each book in the series is full of passion and heart. Chase Kinkade has been on the sidelines watching her sisters find their match and all she can do is keep working hard to achieve her professional goals. When the opportunity comes for her to follow up on a former recruit that joined the military instead of signing on to play professional ball, she goes undercover to hopefully get a great story. The last thing Chase was expecting was to fall head over heels in love with the man. Gunner, a small town bartender, is content with his life but deep down knows he is missing something. When Chase Kinkade rolls into town, he simply cannot get enough of her. But what will he do when he discovers the truth about how and why she landed in his life? "...good guys, unicorns like him, really do exist." Told in dual POV, Hard to Lose is a smoking hot read full of passion and tender romance. In addition to the sports romance element, Bromberg explores the life of a veteran and the aftermath of war. Because Gunner gave up his dreams to be a professional athlete to fight for his country, we experience the turmoil of those choices right along with him. The relationship between Gunner and Chase is sultry and sweet and they truly made a perfect match. "My beginning is her end." Overall, Hard to Lose is another stunning addition to this series. I have enjoyed every single character from this series and Gunner makes an excellent addition to the crew. Although I am not normally a fan of "deep secrets" in a read, Chase and Gunner made it all worth it. I will certainly miss the Kinkade Sisters and their men but my character I will miss the most from this family is the father and patriarch of the family. Mr. Kinkade loves his daughters fiercely and will do anything to help his girls! There's nothing better than a father's love! I have always been a fan of K. Bromberg and I certainly look forward to more greatness to come! For more reviews/reveals/giveaways visit:

Chase Kincade is next in K. Bromberg’s Play Hard series and I have to say (at the start) I was not as curious about her as with the other Kincade sisters. She was not about love and all about work. But now, after reading her emotional love story with Gunner, I am so happy she cracked her shell and found her happy ever after. And who better than a sexy veteran turned bar owner (who very sadly lost his baseball dream) to sweetly give Chase everything she didn’t know she needed. I was all over it from start to finish! Hard to Lose is the fourth installment in Kristy’s Play Hard series and it focuses on the youngest Kincade sister. Chase is a business woman who is all about achieving her goals as a sports agent. She doesn’t have time for hearts and flowers. She has seen her three sisters settle and fall in love and she believes she doesn’t need that. Suddenly though she receives a letter from Ryan Camden, who sent it from the war zone years ago after losing his dream of becoming a professional baseball player. Now she is decided to find him, feeling a strange connection to this man she doesn’t know. Enter Gunner, who also happens to be the Ryan she is looking for (but she doesn’t know that). He is a sweetheart, he is gorgeous, and a man who is still suffering the consequences of war. Sparks fly and this relationship becomes so much more than either of them expected. She's heaven. She's hell. She's the temptation I can't resist and the torture I willingly put myself through, so I can watch her come undone before I get mine. Oh man.. I am a sucker for stories that are full of emotions and, in my opinion, K. Bromberg is one of the best at love stories that bring all these feels. I was not surprised this series continues to be amazing in that aspect and everything else it brings. I loved how Hard to Lose’s plot developed and the old/new crew of characters it has. Chase is just as wonderful as the rest of the Kincade sisters, a woman following her dreams, loving her incredible family and finally also finding her much deserved happiness. Gunner. Oh God, Gunner.. I LOVED HIM. He is the sweetest man, with a side of cocky and a heart of gold after everything he’s gone through, he is such an outstanding hero and the perfect match for Chase. I loved their banter, their burning chemistry and the unexpected but unstoppable emotional connection between them. This novel was such a pleasure to read and a wonderful addition to the series. “We're the only ones who can write our own story. Chase, the only person I want to write my happily ever after is with you.” Therefore, I am rating Hard to Lose with 4.5 STARS because I loved this roller coaster of emotions from start to finish. I loved Chase and Gunner, as individuals and as a couple. I loved the sexual tension and the explosive chemistry. And I loved how their relationship turned into so much more. I am so glad these two souls found each other, healed together and found their happiness. It was very much deserved! And you want to know what else I am happy about? That this is not the last book in the series!! We are also getting Finn’s story and I am SO excited about it. I am sure Kristy will find the perfect woman who will change his ways forever. This series is SO WORTH IT! CHECK OUT MY BLOG HERE:

    4 Stars! "Dance in the rain with me." Believe it or not, this was my first read by this author. I KNOW!! Another one where I am punching my own face over here! I really want to go back and read this entire series now as well as a bunch of her backlist. But, I can tell you that this can totally be read as a stand alone. What a refreshing read!!

I love me the alpha bad boys and the anti heroes, but every once in a while, it's so nice to read about a hero who's a nice guy, a vet, a baseball player, and a bartender?!? Um, YES PLEASE!! The setup for this book kinda sorta reminded me of Message in a Bottle where our heroine, Chase, receives a letter that was lost in the mail, from Gunner, which he had mailed out years ago to Chase's family sports management firm. The letter speaks to her and she becomes bound and determined to track Gunner down because...hello, good PR!!! A baseball player who gave it all up to serve his country. "Maybe I'm curious about this man who's close to me in age and who felt so strongly about his duty, that he gave up his dream to fulfill it." So off to the small town of Destiny Falls Chase goes to track down the man from the letter, Ryan Camden. Now, these two have instant sparks and chemistry, and while I actually love a good instant chemistry/ love-at-first-sight-story, it is almost NEVER done correctly. Here? It was so well executed and it totally worked for me. "One orange envelope, one mistaken identity, and one dance in the rain later, and there's nowhere else I'd rather be or person I'd rather be with." I loved watching this no-nonsense heroine who is convinced she doesn't need a relationship and is all about her career, totally have her world turned upside down with Gunner. Their love story was sweet and hella steamy, but there's also an element to the story that I won't go into because it's a spoiler that totally kept me invested in this story and turning the pages. Hard To Lose (The Play Hard Series, book 4) was such a heartwarming ride with seriously one of my new favorite book boyfriends. I can't wait to read Hard to Love next! Thank you to Valentine PR & Literary Management who provided me with an advanced review copy of this book, in exchange for an honest review.

Maybe she can get some good press for the company out of the whole thing. Ryan, now known as Gunner, is running a bar in a small Virginia town and it's super insta attraction between him and Chase. But both are not really honest about things... LET THE FUN TIMES BEGIN... ══════════════════ I really enjoyed reading this. But I also hated parts of it. I hated that they start out lying to each other - or omitting - whatever. I don't want my hero and heroine to start out like that. Because it will always end up in fights and break-ups and unnecessary drama. But the story was so cute. Gunner is such an amazing guy and they have such an amazing time together. Adorable. We also get some very heartbreaking moments. But there's always the lie in the background - and it takes them forever to get to the truth. Ugh. I wish it would've come out way earlier. But it is what it is and the book wasn't bad. I just didn't like the lying part. This was a really sweet and sexy and emotional sports/military/bar/sports agent romance! ☺ Can't wait to read Finn's book next! Hard to Love I wanted him to get his HEA since book #1 - even though he was an a§§ most of the time! 😂 And I also wouldn't mind seeing a girl-power Jerry McGuire kind of sports-rom-com series on Netflix one day! ☺ 💜 💜

(ARC provided by Valentine PR) Chase Kincade is the youngest of four sisters from New York working for their family business Kincade Sports Management. She's a type A personality who accomplishes all the goals assigned to her. She's driven, confident, independent, and highly competitive. Always up for a challenge she is the sister who goes above and beyond to get new contracts and clients for their agency. She works with top athletes, and is fierce and ambitious. She knows herself and what she wants and is unapologetic about it. This extends to her personal life where she enjoys her no strings attached lifestyle and never lets herself get sidetracked by a man. Then she receives a lost letter that was mailed five years ago from a talented baseball pitcher. She can't quit thinking about this man and wondering what happened to him. She feels a connection to a man she's never met, and decides to track him down. Maybe he still plays ball, and still has a chance. Gunner Camden has loved baseball for as long as he can remember, but he gave up his dreams of MLB when he decided to serve his country. His path is forever changed and he's now a different man living a peaceful life in a small town outside of Virginia Beach. Then Chase Kincade walks into his life and turns it upside down. She makes him feel alive again, but they have no future since they are temporary with an expiration date. Sparks fly, and they are enjoying living in the moment together. Then unexpected feelings develop they don't know what to do with. Will they get a fresh start and a possibility of something more, or will lies and deceit ruin everything? -There is definitely something to be said about a man's touch when he's tuned in to the woman he's with. -"He's nothing like I expected." And like everything I never knew I wanted. -My heart ached in my chest in a way I've never felt it feel before. Hard To Lose (The Play Hard Series, book 4) by K.

Is it possible for every addition in the "Play Hard" series to be even better than the previous one??? Yes, it really is. I love so much K. Bromberg's writing. Every book of hers had depth and it's filling me with so much emotion that it makes it impossibly hard to let go of these characters and their stories. If you haven't tried this series yet, you have to fix it immediately. These books are sports romances at their finest and everyone has to experience them... "The best relationships are the ones you never saw coming." It had finally come Chase's turn to shine, the youngest of the Kincade bunch. Chase is a woman driven by ambition. She just wants to succeed in more and more things among of her sisters who lately had been sidetracked by men. She doesn't need a man in order to be on the top. After all, their plan had started with a man that hurt her in the past... What she doesn't expect is to receive a long lost letter from a soldier who used to be a baseball player in his youth and her interest is picking up... "Maybe I'm curious about this man who's close to me in age and who felt so strongly about his duty that he gave up his dream to fullfill it." Now, she wants desperately to find that man for an unknown reason, but with the explanation that he will bring a good press to their agency.... So, she is going into a netflix town who is called "Destiny Falls' in order to succeed another of her goals. What she isn't expecting was love to knock into her door in the form of an ex military barman... and the lies that she has told him might be able destroy everything that is happening between them... "I hate myself for deceiving him, and I hate myself even more for not allowing this to be anything more than it is." Gunner's life changed the day that he was forced to let go of his dream and join army. He used to be a wild kid, and with a good reason, but life was cruel with him. Baseball was his only refugee, but he had to bury it in order to survive in a war that wasn't his to fight. Nowadays, he is running a bar dedicated to his fallen brothers and he is exhausting himself doing amazing thing for the others in order for the nightmare and the survivor guilt to stay at bay... What he isn't expecting is for Chase Kincade to get into his bar and turn his life upside down. "The woman is fucking incredible. Does she know that? See that? Does she have any idea that she is knocking me on my ass just as surprisingly too?" OMG!!! How I loved this couple!!! It might be my most favorite in this series. Or maybe not! LOL!!! This couple was slightly different than the previous three. Gunner wasn't an athlete anymore and he had a heavy load upon his shoulder. His past was hunting him... But he was a true hero, not only on war, but in life as well... The life he was doing was touching a sensitive chorde inside my heart. He was an amazing creature and he deserved the world. I was so sad that he had to let go baseball. I really was. But i think he had found his purpose in this earth and he was amazing in what he was doing... "I've been advised to let old dreams go. To accept that life has changed forever." Chase was driven by ambition, but it took a change of scenery to realize that there were more in this life than your ambition. A small town, a handful of kids and a tortured man made her discover her true self. A woman that was still hurting by her mother's loss and a woman that was needing love to be happy. Yep, she had lied, but I can totally understand how she let a little sparkle of lie to become a wild fire... But in Destine Falls, with a fascinating man by her side, she realized the meaning of life and it was so wonderful to witness something like that. "Sometimes it's easier to be who you really are when you step outside of your daily grind and everything there holding you in its normal place." I loved Gunner and Chase, as I loved and all the previous Kincade sisters and their men... And when I've read at the end that the author is about to write a book about Finn, I was over the moon... Yeah, I know. He is the bad man in here, but still, I'm very intrigued by him... So bring it on, Kritsty!!! "You live in a black and white world, sweetie. It's okay to fight for the one who adds color to it." **I received an ARC for the exchange of an honest reivew**

They are all adamant that she should date more… Their father, Kenyon Kincade wants more for their company and after a heart to heart with Chase, she makes her mission to find the one that got away… the one whose letter she cannot stop thinking about- Ryan aka Gunner. Ryan gave up his baseball career and enrolled in the military… but why? Hard To Lose was gripping from start to finish. Not only is KB a terrific storyteller, but she also has the gift of making you care about all characters – even Finn. As always, you think you have worked out the story, worked out the twists and the lies, but something that KB has mastered beautifully is the art of the unanticipated turn of events, the curveball. Chase and Gunner’s attraction is genuine but secret and lies might ruin it all… I loved this book… the whole series. It has, for me, everything that makes a good story excellent: delightful protagonists and equally delightful love trying to overcome obstacles. I cannot wait to read Finn’s story!

The relationship of these two is complicated, full of lies that end up getting more complicated as the relationship of these two evolves. As he read, he wanted to get into the book and beat Chase for some of her decisions, despite understanding her. I liked how light their relationship was, and how the evolution of their feelings ended up creating a pure relationship with a strong connection, despite the fact that they had only known each other for a short time. Hard To Lose brings a romantic, sweet and emotional story and was a great addition to this incredible series . I Received an unreleased copy of this book

Gunner and Chase have a deep understanding for one another and to see them just *know* when the other needs them to just support or to say something is truly beautiful. ~ Hard to Lose is the least “sports romance” of the series and our hero is a former baseball star turned military man. I buddy read this with @booksandbubbs and she can attest to how many times I said I loved Gunner. It was a lot. I just couldn’t get enough of him, he was sweet, charming, caring, working through some of the trauma being in the military can cause and still trying to give back to those who need help. The woo-ing was so fun and I loved to see the charm of the military town too. Chase is strong, determined, and very goal-oriented. She decides to take a small break from her normal schedule to find a man who wrote a letter to KSM 5 years ago. She ends up meeting Gunner and fudging the details on why she’s there only to fall completely in love with him (which is impossible not to do). There are so many things to love about this story I can’t even name them all. The ending did feel a little rushed to me but it didn’t overshadow any of the love I have for this book and couple. Chase and Gunner just fit. They understand each other so well in such a short time and that connection is just so strong neither can deny their feelings. Thank you to @valentine_pr_ for the ARC

This is the 4th book in the series and while you don't have to read the previous books to understand them, they do add to the dynamic among the sisters. Chase is driven, goal oriented, type A personality. She works hard and doesn't have time for frivolous things such as love. If anything, her ex has taught her that lesson. When a letter arrives on Chase's desk, it gets her wheels spinning. She knows how she can create some great press for KSM and maybe give a veteran his dreams. Chase sets off to find the writer. What she finds is a new, updated version of herself. Gunner is a hard man. He's been made that way. His dreams crushed and yanked from him. His mom unwilling to leave an abusive relationship. Guilt...so much guilt. When Gunner is confronted with Chase's stark honesty, he isn't quite sure what to make of this beautiful, smart woman who crashes in to his life. With his job and volunteer work, Gunner tries to exhaust himself each day to chase away the nightmares. As Gunner gets to know Chase, he can't help but feel their strong connection and he wants for the first time in a long time. But, when truths become too much, will this soldier tuck tail or stand and fight? I loved Chase's story. It made me laugh, cry and I could feel the emotions from both characters. You'll want to root them on, sigh with contentment and cry in frustration and sadness. Bromberg is fantastic at writing characters that you can relate to. Ones that you'd want to know in real life. I am excited for Finn's story, despite him being bad with Chase. I am very much looking forward to his story.

    Okay, so Gunner is my absolute FAVE!!!! I've said this about every hero this series has given us but this time, I mean it! Full of emotion this book pulls at your heartstrings and really makes you stop and think. Chase as the youngest has seen all of her siblings find love and knew that it wouldn't happen the same for her - she has goals and wants to reach them. Gunner is overloaded with emotions from his past. From his childhood to his time serving in the military - anger, guilt, sadness. He live Okay, so Gunner is my absolute FAVE!!!!

Chase as the youngest has seen all of her siblings find love and knew that it wouldn't happen the same for her - she has goals and wants to reach them. Gunner is overloaded with emotions from his past. From his childhood to his time serving in the military - anger, guilt, sadness. He lives his life now to do his best by everyone affected. The two of these together showed an instant connection despite the secrets and reasons behind them and I loved their chemistry together. Gunner on the outside is so easy going and personable and he thrives off of Chase's confidence and strong-willed spirit. This story - and series - will go down as one of my ultimate favourites of K Bromberg's. She has brought her A-game with these sisters. Roll on book 5, though!!!

Although this book doesn’t put accent on “sports” as much as the previous ones do , it still can be considered sports romance , Gunner having the opportunity to be a great pitcher. I really enjoyed this book, Chase and Gunner’s story was full of emotion and swoon moments. Although I love me an alpha possessive male, from time to time a man like Gunner [a marshmallow man] sweet, gentle, funny and caring is exactly what I need. So, one letter lost in transit, one mistaken identity and one dance in the rain later we get their emotional journey. Gunner is dealing with survivor guilt , Chase has hidden the pain caused by her mom’s death behind her work. Together they can heal and make eachother happy. One character that I love is Mr. Kincade. He raised 4 girls on his own, he has to listen to their “girls talk” and problems and then always has the perfect advices and words for them. Awesome series!!

    I haven’t read the previous books in this series, but this definitely can be read as a stand alone. Unfortunately, this was a miss for me. It was well written and I loved the hero, Gunner, but the heroine and the conflict totally ruined this. I did not enjoy reading this and kept putting it off. As someone who lost a parent, you would think I would be able to connect with Chase, but her character was so abrasive and she really rubbed me the wrong way. I also couldn’t stand the conflict.

I just kept waiting for the ball to drop. If it were anything else, I would have put aside my feelings towards the heroine and given this a higher rating. I loved Gunner and his scenes at the volunteer center broke my heart! I don’t blame him one bit for how he reacted towards Chase when all was revealed. This book may have been a miss but I will for sure be reading the others in this series. ARC received in exchange for an honest review.

    Hard To Put Down This is my very first read from Ms. Bromberg but definitely not my last. I am very lucky to received an early copy of this ebook. Although this is the fourth book of The Play Hard series, it can be read as a standalone. This book didn’t spoil it for me not reading the previous books, instead it made me want to read the other books in the series.

A hot military hero with a heart of gold and a sexy, smart, strong heroine. Both have undeniable attraction with each other on the onset and the flirting exchanges between the two were such a delight to read. This book gave me all the feels from laughed out loud moment with Heloisa but also heart-tugging moments that left me teary-eyed. Overall a must read and I’m looking forward to the audiobook when it’s release.

    I will be begging all of my friends to read this book! It’s a story that I need everyone to experience - it’s so beautiful and all around incredible! I finished it and felt like Buddy the Elf when he’s twirling around saying “I’m in love and I don’t care who knows it!” Bravo, Kristy - not just on Hard to Lose but also on the entire series. It’s been one of my favorite series to read and I know it will be one that I’ll reread over and over and over again.

There were several moments with Gunner that had me choking up, where I had to put the book down for a moment to process it all, the only way I can describe them is as hauntingly beautiful.

The letter is from a promising super fast baseball pitcher, declining an invitation to meet with them. Ryan Camden could have potentially had an amazing career in MLB but he walked away from it never to be heard from again. Chase sets out to find Ryan Camden. She is curious about what became of him and when she discovers he is now an ex-veteran she sees an opportunity to organise a fundraising baseball game which would be great PR for KSM and might still land him the career dream he was chasing. Her investigation skills lead her to Destiny Falls, the last known place of residence. Destiny Falls is not a big town so surely it can’t be hard to find him? After scoping things out she ends up in the local drinking spot - FU-BAR. Someone here is bound to know him but she quickly becomes distracted with the gorgeous bartender and owner, Gunner. She knows that part of job is to chat to and charm his patrons but there is definitely a connection there that is more than him playing a role. ‘She owns my attention the minute she walks into the bar. A new face in this bar gets noticed pretty damn quick to say the least. The town is small. The bar patrons are regulars. She’s not one of them.’ Chase soon discovers there is so much more to this guy. He is a complete giver, he is very aware of how lucky he is to be alive and tries to make life a bit better for the families of veterans who have suffered loss. He volunteers at a local community centre and tries to financially support the families of guys he lost in combat. He is open and honest and makes Chase feel like the only woman in the room, each time she is around him. ‘I said kissing is overrated.’ Words I used to think were true until Gunner. Until his kisses that feel like a slow, sweet seduction, pulling you in, dragging you under, becoming a temptation like I’ve never known.’ Chase’s time in Destiny Falls is limited and despite making this clear to Gunner, they fall head over heels into a beautiful relationship. He is everything she never knew she was missing in life and being with him is so easy. I think that both of them could imagine a future together, even if it's a long distance. Surely they could make it work? ‘I stare at him, at this incredible man, and wonder how my whole world just narrowed in such a short time and became solely about him. My world used to have no beginning or ending point but now when I look at him, he’s both of those to me.’ Chase’s reason for being in Destiny Falls brings her back to reality though, along the way she has told a few white lies to Gunner to protect herself from people knowing her reason for being there. The one thing he will not tolerate is anyone being deceitful and when things go tits up she feels the full impact of what that means. I knew things were going to eventually implode and I was reading as fast as I could and also trying not to because I wanted everything to stay all sweet and happy :) ‘If I was smart, I’d walk away right now. This man is too good. Too kind. Too genuine. Too thoughtful. Too …. Everything. I. Don’t. Deserve. Him. But I’m not smart.’ I really enjoyed this story, Gunner is super cute and I love that he was so into Chase. I like how her attitude on life was changed when she saw things through Gunner’s perspective. A fabulous page turning read.

You get a heart-wrenching, steamy, inspiring story with a thread of deception that threatens one of the most rewarding journeys to forever I’ve read to date. Chase Kincade didn’t set out to be dishonest. She's looking for the baseball player turned military man whose long-delayed letter to her family's sports agency refuses to leave her mind. She also didn’t anticipate small-town bar owner, Gunner, or the fact that she could far too easily fall for the handsome, tortured warrior. Oh my heart, I wish I could know Gunner in real life! He's a hero who carries the ghosts of his brothers in arms and has dedicated his life to make up for failing to save them. It's not only the scars that show externally, but those that cover his heart, and he does everything he can for his military brothers in their small town and the children whose lives have been irrevocably changed by the horrors of battle. I’ve loved every book in this series, but this is easily my favorite, with tragically flawed characters who easily own my soul. I always love characters who are relationship opposed, because it's such a delight to watch them fall! This is one of those books I wish I had time to read a hundred times so I could keep these beloved characters as alive in my heart ten years from now as they are today. This romance is clever and witty, but it hit me with wave after wave of every emotion possible. If you’re looking for a romance that hits all the right notes and gives your heart the most exquisite workout, hustle over to that 1-Click and start reading today. It will be one of your most poignant, touching, uplifting, and unforgettable reads this year!

    I have yet to read a book by K. Bromberg I have not enjoyed immensely. Chase and Gunner's (Ryan) story is no exception. The importance of learning to let ones self live after loosing a loved one is a lesson so few seem to actually realize. And not just in books but in life. This beautiful story reminds us that we are still living. Life is right there for the taking all we need to do is open our eyes, our arms, our minds and our hearts.

I have adored every single book in this series but let me just say, Hard to Lose is hands down my absolute favorite. From the very first page to the last, I was completely enraptured with this fictional world Ms. Bromberg created. This story was pure magic and I seriously never wanted it to end. Chase and Gunner were two incredibly well written characters. Different in so many ways, but at their very core, they were the same. They are both so used to showing the world one version of themselves that when they meet, neither were expecting anything. Sparks fly and heat up the pages as Chase and Gunner get to know each other. But nothing is as it seems and secrets are kept hidden. Will they get a fighting chance that both so deserve? I loved every single thing about this story. The chemistry, the desperation, the friendships...truthfully- just all the feels, so much that it kept me glued to the pages needing to know how it was all going to play out. Ms. Bromberg continually blows me away with her skill but this story was magical. You guys seriously don’t want to miss it! Highly recommend reading it!

When Chase decides to follow a Dear John’ letter that was sent to her dad, little did she know that she would find her passion, love and herself. Chase falls for the small town bartender Gunner, whom she originally thought would help her find Ryan Camden. She’s smitten at first glance, so much that she doesn’t ask him. It doesn’t take long for Chase and Gunner to be beyond smitten, but rather falling for each other. When Chase’s PI, finally tells her Ryan Camden is Gunner, his nickname from the army, what will Chase do? She’s already fallen, entwined herself in his life through his help work with the children of fallen shoulders and not mentioned who she really is. Watching both chase and Gunner find themselves through love was perfection, but will love win? Gunner’s trust is completely broken when he finds out chase was originally out to exploit him for her own gain. But in such a short time, chase learns what’s really important. I loved reading this book. This book is way more than a spirts agent and a baseball player. I absolutely loved this book!
