Philosophy is defined as a theory underlying or regarding a sphere of activity or thought. Well, my theory is if I can add at least 10 new books to my Wishlist and move at least 5 older Wishlist selections to my TBR list every month, then life is a ice cream sundae. And if I can find those 10 books from at least 5 new blogs each month then that's the cherry on top.


Well, I've made it almost 5 years now, so for better or worse, I continue on. I tend to blog in spurts as the urge to be creative erupts. As I don't have an artistic bone in my body, you will see very few changes in the layouts. Hey, I'm a reader not an artist like so many of the awesome bloggers I follow. I know you don't always have the time but if you stopped and looked, take a half a minute and say your piece. Recommend a book that you have enjoyed or hated for that matter. Thank you to all who visit.
Oh, and I moved my Google Friend Connect info and share this buttons to the top, as without our friends, who are we?

A brand new book in the USA Today Bestselling PHILADELPHIA PATRIOTS series of sexy sports romances!

Big, tough, sexy...and trouble.

As far as sports agent Kate Berlin is concerned, that describes Nick Rome perfectly. Landing the hard-charging, talented catcher as her new client is a huge coup, and Nick could catapult her small agency into the big leagues--or destroy her reputation if she screws up. Since Nick has a habit of butting heads with Patriots management, the chance for disaster is high.
Nick's had serious agent troubles, so he's willing to give smart and sexy Kate Berlin a try at negotiating his new and much-needed contract. The hardworking single mom is determined to manage Nick both on and off the field, clamping down on the attraction blazing between them. But nobody keeps Nick Rome under control--either on the field or in the bedroom.

Can Kate handle Nick as both her lover and her client, or will succumbing to passion destroy the professional life she's worked so hard to achieve?

I'm a huge baseball fan so this book was perfect for me. Coming from the same small town that San Francisco Giants number one pitcher, Madison Bumgarner grew up in, we follow SF from opening day till the completion of the World Series. They have been winners of that coveted ring three times in the last five years. I loved getting to peek behind the curtain and see some of what goes on between an agent and a top ceded ball player. The writing of Vanessa Kelly and Randy Sykes is seamless and the combination of the sexy romance and the cutthroat business world meshes wonderfully. The male characters are bigger than life and the romance is smoking hot! 
I was hooked from page one and pretty much read straight through. The best thing was discovering that there are five earlier books that I now get to indulge in. 

If you want a taste of this awesome series

(Be sure and double check pricing as this can change at anytime.)
World Series Winners Again!
