Being a sports psychologist for pro baseball is my dream. There’s nothing I love more than working for the Chicago Angels helping players that need someone to get their mind in focus and back on track.

The minute the Angels pick up playboy superstar Alaric King as their first baseman, I knew he’ll be trouble: hot, charming, and irresistible. Getting involved with an athlete is already a bad idea, but getting involved with a player that’s also your therapy patient? Absolutely forbidden.

I work hard to be where I am, and I’m not going to let my dream career shatter to be with a heartbreaker—no matter how tempting he is. Am I strong enough to not let him into my heart?


Ever since my rival purposely threw a baseball at my head, my game has been off and I end up being traded to the Chicago Angels. My plan is to show my face at mandated therapy sessions so I can get back on the plate. What I didn’t plan is to be blown away by Dr. Celine Pineda: intelligent, successful, and sexy as hell. She’s only here to help me fix my swing, but what I didn’t intend is for her to fix my heart.

I knew that we couldn’t be together. Being with her could cost both our careers, but I didn’t care. I am going to risk it all, but would she?

Excerpt 1:
There was a knock on the door and then Alaric strolled through the doorway. I sat behind my desk, needing some barrier between Alaric and me. He was like a magnet, and I gravitated to him—which was dangerous.

Alaric’s gaze met mine, then he paused for a moment. He shook his head and flashed his perfect, white smile. 

“Now who’s hiding?” he said teasingly.

“I don’t know what you mean,” I huffed out.

“Celine, you can lie to yourself, but don’t lie to me. Your fear is as transparent as the blouse you were wearing the first time we met.” His gaze never left mine. 

I pretended not to feel my cheeks burning. “Look, people think I’m a goody two-shoes, and they’re right. I never broke the rules—” I tried explaining to him.

“Well, I’m something of a bad boy and I could definitely teach you about breaking the rules.” He winked and a mischievous grin curved on his face. “Come to the dark side, Celine.”

“I can’t.” I needed to stand my ground. It was difficult though when he was only a couple feet away from me. He looked sexy as fuck, even when wearing the most casual of clothing. His voice sounded sensual, and his eyes captured me.

“You can. All it takes is one kiss,” Alaric said confidently. “I know that you want to kiss me as much as I want to kiss you. You can’t deny the connection we have—I’m positive you felt it to the moment we met.” 


Excerpt 2:
“The first thing I need you both to do is come up with a list of names of anybody that you both went up against for something important, even if it was a spelling bee back in elementary school. You never know what makes someone harbor bad feelings against you,” Clay instructed. “Secondly, I need you both to write a list of exes. It doesn’t matter if you think you parted on good terms. Everyone is a suspect until they’re cleared. Alaric, even one-night stands who acted like they wanted to stay for coffee instead of taking off.”

“We understand and can get you our lists as soon as possible,” I affirmed.

“We’ll talk again after I get your lists,” Clay said, then we hung up the call.

Shit. This was going to take a while for me as I had quite a list of names on my sex roster. 

Celine pressed her lips together, clenching her jaw and glaring at me. 

“You slept with the entire fucking population of Montana!” Celine snapped.

“Not the entire population. Half of them are men.” I grasped her hand and gently squeezed. I chuckled, trying to lighten the mood. 

“You’re a dick.” She pulled her hand away and pursed her lips.

I looked at her apologetically. “You can’t be mad at my life before I met you. I was young. Young guys think mostly with their dicks. I had women throwing themselves at me, wanting me as their trophy for the night. I never thought there’d be consequences that would hurt a relationship I was in one day, because at the time—I never imagined there’d be a relationship.” I took her hand again, gazing into her eyes, pleading for her not to be upset with me.

             She frowned. “Shit. I’m sorry, babe,” she said. “Don’t mind me. I’m just sitting over here in my corner feeling inadequate.” Her body language changed, slumping and twisting her head away from me.

My eyes widened; jaw slacked. I pinched her chin between my thumb and forefinger and twisted her head toward me, gazing into her eyes. “I don’t know why you feel that way. Clearly, you’ve got what none of the others had because we’re living together.”
