SAVING MAVERICK, Book One, The Outlaws of Baseball
Maverick Jansen and Kelsey Sullivan fall into a complicated game of PR strategy by day and searing passion by night where they both find a new meaning to fast and hard.
Maverick has met his match . . . she just doesn’t know it’s her–yet.
Days before the biggest game of pitcher Maverick Jansen’s career, his brother is killed in a car accident. Determined not to let his teammates down, Mav pushes through his grief only to lose control of his signature pitch–and the series.
Mav buries his grief in parties and when a late-night rant is caught on tape, he’s handed an ultimatum–clean up his act and find a way to get his pitching mojo back or he’s off the team.
Once burned, twice shy Kelsey Sullivan is a media consultant persuaded by her childhood friend, and the Outlaw’s team owner, to help restore Mav’s out of control public image.
Kelsey has one standing rule – no sexy male athletes as clients. Too much drama. Yet, something about Maverick pulls her in and when a kiss is caught on camera, they become forced to pretend they’re a couple to improve his wild playboy image. Soon, Maverick and Kelsey’s romance goes from make believe to not-so-scripted reality.
Maverick finally gets his groove… er, pitch back, but at what price? With Kelsey ready to walk, he quickly realizes what they have is more than just soul-shattering sex. Can he overcome his fear of commitment to prove to Kelsey love can save them both?
