Love may be just a game, but the baseball players in Jennifer Seasons' sexy Diamonds and Dugouts series—they're playing for keeps!
Mark Cutter has it all: a lucrative baseball career, fast cars, and faster women—and all thanks to his priceless good luck charm. At least, that's what he thinks before Lorelei Littleton shows up. Next thing he knows, he's waking up alone, the sexy brunette has vanished, and his good luck charm is gone. More than a little curious about the wicked-hot cat burglar and determined to get his property back, Mark's going to track down the thief and make her pay—big time.
Maybe Lorelei feels a tiny bit guilty for stealing Mark's good luck charm, but when it's worth $100,000 and the money could save her niece's life? She's not losing sleep over it … but him? Lorelei can't get the ballplayer with the bad attitude out of her head. And now he's come after her with more than just revenge in his eyes. Lorelei has a choice: turn over the charm and lose the money, or keep it and risk losing everything … including her heart.
What a unique way for the two main characters to meet. I really did think that this author showed a lot of imagination in writing this story. I loved the fact that Lorelei had a darn good reason for doing what she did, even if it was a not so great decision on her part. I understood both her motivation and justification for doing what she did.
She was so not expecting the Mark Cutter she met and he was definitely not expecting to be so drawn to her after what she pulled over on him. I liked that the author drew out the story enough for us to really get to know the secondary characters as well. Mark's sister was one of my favorites, but I could not stand her use of the word Y'all's.... I live in Texas and use the word Y'all often. I have never heard anyone add n "s" to it and especially not when talking to only one person. That really irritated me. Y'all is already plural!
