For as long as she can remember Amelia Graham has always had one goal in mind, to find success on Wall Street, and she made the decision long ago that she would do whatever it took to find success at the top in her chosen field, even if it meant dedicating herself to her work 24-7. Putting so much of herself into her work has left her with a very dull social life and very few dates, and while having someone to share her successes with sounds good at her loneliest moments, the idea of giving up work time to date someone sounds an awful lot like a distraction that she can't really afford. When she attends a Saints party to show support for her friend, she finds herself talking to a very handsome and very enticing baseball player who leaves her questioning that pesky no distractions rule she has in place...

Oliver Shields lives and breaths everything baseball, and can't imagine doing anything else with his life, the very idea of permanently leaving the field is completely unsettling to him. He knows his age is soon going to become a factor, and he is going to eventually have to face the fact that there will come a time soon when he needs to retire. But he's just not ready to face that fact just yet, he feels like he still has a few more good years of ball playing left in him, but the man vying for his spot thinks otherwise and is doing all he can to move Oliver right out of his starting spot on the team, and it has caused a huge rift between them. Just when Oliver thinks things between them can't get any worse, he finds out the beautiful woman he just met just so happens to be a close friend of his team mate, and he is willing to do all he can to keep Oliver from dating his friend. Oliver isn't quite ready to let her go though, there is something about her that has him thinking maybe she is supposed to be a part of this ever looming future hanging over his head... and for once he really likes the idea of it!

This was my first experience with Ms. Scott's work and I have to say that I really enjoyed it, so much so, I plan to revisit the series very soon and acquaint myself with more of the Saints! Oliver and Amelia's story grabbed my attention right from the start, and had me flying right through the pages on a quest to find their happily ever after, and along the way I found myself smiling like a fool and blushing a few times too! I feel like these two were truly a match made in literary heaven, the chemistry between them was evident from the beginning and the driven natures they shared definitely created a unbreakable bond between them... watching them find their HEA was truly a literary treat for me!! I highly recommend you meet these two, they are destined to leave you with a happy heart and a smile on your face!!
