TO HOT TO HANDLE by Katie Rose

I don't really like baseball but how can I resist this book cover.  The description of the book was interesting as well.  My vow to read books from authors I have not heard about helps as well and this is what I think about my new discovery.

Nikki Case is no fan of baseball. After having to clean up the mess of her ex-husband's gambling debts, Nikki wants nothing to do with the sport. Things don't go her way when she is assigned to manage the image of a Baseball team.

The New Jersey Sonics are well known for their womanizing ways and drunken brawls. Expecting the worse, Nikki goes in with the big guns but was met with opposition. The team was not as she was expecting, especially smoking hot, star hitter, Jake Baldwin, who has the power to make her wet.

Jake Baldwin admires the way that Nikki seems that she is made of steal.  After being pranked left and right by his team members, Jake watched as Nikki took it all in stride. 

She was labeled the frost queen by the rest of the team, but Jake knew that there was a fire beneath all that frost, and he was just the man to bring it out.

A bet made before Jake ever laid eyes on Nikki, lays over their new relationship.  Jake, enjoying Nikki's attention more than he thought, more than forgot about the bet, but when Nikki finds out (which we know she will) all hell breaks loose.  

Would Jake have what it takes to win back his girl?  Would Nikki even forgive him for embarrassing her like he did?  Would the team win the tournament? Find out in the second installment of The Boys of Summer Series, Too Hot to Handle.

I saw this on +Goodreads and I could not resist!

Katie Rose book was good, but not great.  The team sounded like a bunch of three year old's.  They were very immature and hard to like.  The people who are paying them are having a hard time on how they act, the least the team can do is behave a little.  

Their boss and managers are playing big money on them, yet they do not take anything serious.  Another thing that got on my nerves was the bet.  That has to be one of the most stupidest bets I have ever heard of.  A number for a locker?  Seriously?

This book was predictable and I knew, I just knew that Nikki would find out about the bet the way she did, it was obvious.  I read this kind of situation in other books as well.  This book also had it's ups and downs and I found myself stopping and reading other books, while still reading this one.

This book is part as a series but it can be read as a stand alone.  Usually when I read a series, it's very rare that I do not want to read the rest of the series, but I find myself not really interested in the rest.

It's not because the book was boring, I actually had fun reading it, it's just that I don't feel an urgency like I usually do to read the entire series.  Weird but through.
