This week’s hook …
by Iris Blobel
Yet, her pain was still too raw, and even with all her willpower, her hands trembled at the idea of a man stepping too close. The desire she’d been harbouring the last few weeks suddenly turned into apprehension. She inhaled a couple of deep breaths to calm herself as she held Oliver’s gaze.
“Are you okay?” he asked.
She took another breath and stepped away from him, still searching for her keys. They just had to be in her bag. She had no doubt about it.
“Lost your keys?” he queried this time.
His deep voice was soothing and caring, and although everything inside her urged her to relax, her inner restlessness took over. Shaking her head frantically, she whispered, “No. They’re somewhere in here.” While taking another step away from him, she added, “I’d appreciate if you would leave me be.”
Women want him and he wants them…
Pitcher Oliver Dempsey loves playing baseball for a living, yet, when it comes to his private life, ‘love’ is not in his vocabulary. He likes to keep women at an arm’s length … until he meets Tamara. Unprepared for the attraction he feels towards her, he’s drawn in, even more when told by his coach that she’s off limits. And only Oliver can decide whether she’s worth fighting for.
Tamara Amis moved to Melbourne seeking distance from her past. With the help of her uncle, the coach of a baseball club, she quickly finds a job and a place to live. Yet, one meeting with the handsome pitcher Oliver stirs unexpected emotions that threaten to overwhelm her, despite her best efforts to resist falling for him.
It’s Oliver’s injury that brings them together, but as they find out about each other’s pasts, how can they be ready to share a future?
