Talk about a wild day... As if being summoned to the deathbed of a grandfather she didn’t know existed wasn’t enough––Isla Bennett meets the man of her dreams. Spends an amazing day playing tourist around Nashville with him. And then finds out she’s inherited the Nashville Slammers major league baseball team. Oh, and her new dream man? He’s the Slammers’ star power hitter. Isla just went from amazing first date to holy heck I’m your boss in the span of a day.
Liam Cruz can’t believe how refreshing it was to spend a day with someone who didn’t know his batting average, the size of his last contract, or heck, even that he’s a baseball player. Now Isla’s thrust into the spotlight, and though she’s more than capable of handling herself professionally, he takes it upon himself to teach her everything he can about the game that is his whole life. But they’ll have to keep it on the DL.
Because doing what’s best for the team means they can never be together––and that might be the toughest play of all.
Jody Holford lives in British Columbia with her family. She's a huge fan of Rainbow Rowell, Nora Roberts, Carly Phillips, Rachel Gibson, Sophia Kinsella, and Emily Giffen. She's unintentionally funny and rarely on time for anything. She writes multiple genres but her favorite is romance.
Isla Bennett has never had a choice about how to live her life, her manipulative father had it all planned out for her and it was his way or nothing. For years he has ruled her life with an iron fist, and kept her in the dark when it came to her family.
She never knew that she had a grandfather that loved her, or that he owned a baseball team...until now. When she learns that he has has passed away and left the ownership of his team in her hands, she knows she needs to head to Nashville. Of course her father has his opinions about what she should do with it, but for once in her life she is taking matters into her own hands, and making her own decisions.
But nothing could have prepared her for what she finds in Nashville...
