Hailey Tate thought she was worth more than a straight flush.
When camera-shy author Hailey Tate’s agent loses a bet and brokers a deal, it leaves Hailey in the last place she wants to be: backed into the corner of Publicity and Paparazzi. Now, thanks to her girl-next-door image and role as pretend girlfriend to a womanizing shortstop, she’s getting the attention she always managed to avoid.
Connor Ryan is not only America’s Sexiest Athlete, he’s also the current Bad Boy of Baseball. But when he goes a base too far, management wants to bench him…permanently. One thing he never counted on? Falling for his sweet, fake girlfriend. He’s the guy who can catch anything and now she’s next on his list

Review by Twinsie Angie
I was given this audiobook by the author for an honest review.
STAHP!! I can’t believe I am in love with this series. This girl likes smut and all the naughty bits and yet, I can’t stop reading!!!! I am 110% invested in this crazy crew of misfits.
As always, the narration by Brittany was amazing. She does crazy woman well. LOL Like I feel like her reactions are totally mine.
Hailey has been a quiet side character until this book, I even massaged Bria with an idea on who her HEA was with based on what I was reading. I was wrong and was a little crushed and then….I met Connor Ryan.
Connor is just meh when we meet him. Total player and we hope he doesn’t touch us so we don’t get whatever STD he has at the time. Yeah, guys he is nasty. Hailey is non to thrilled to be near him and then she finds out she has to spend quality time being his fake girlfriend! Poor Hailey.
This story is a great ride. We see them not stand each other and then come to an agreement to be friends. Well once the pressure is off, we see feelings start to happen. We see jealousy and confusion. But we slowly see LOVE blooming.
I absolutely loved Haileys freak outs and her friend’s reactions. Well not so much Dane’s but yeah. I just love that man whore. LOL He has some crazy ideas and I was laughing so hard I snorted. But Connor and Hailey are my favorite couple. They really get to know the real person and understand how the other works. They realize they both have so much in common even with him being a ball player and her an author. My favorite scene that made me SWOON so hard was Hailey’s boo release party…guys for real!!! Connor is my favorite, and I can’t wait for the next book because it’s also Hailey and Connor!!
