TVBT: THROWING HEAT by Jennifer Seasons #giveaway @Tastybooktours HERO PROFILE & REVIEW

Enter to win a Paperback Set of
Book One & Two in the Diamonds and Dugouts Series


Nightclub manager Leslie Cutter has never been one to back down from a bet. So when Peter Kowalskin, pitcher for the Denver Rush baseball team, bets her that she can’t keep her hands off of him, she’s not about to let the arrogant, sexy playboy win. Especially when the prize could put her business on the map. She’s got this in the bag, just so long as she can stay out of his arms…and his bed.
Peter struck out once before with Leslie, but this bet is sure to be the second chance he’s been waiting for. Determined to stoke the passion he knows is there, he’ll do anything to win - even if it means playing a little dirty.
But as things heat up, this combustible pair will have to decide just how much they’re willing to wager on one another…and on a future that just might last forever.
This was a HIGHLY anticipated read for me, I have been DYING to find out what all the chemistry surrounding Leslie and Peter was  about starting in STEALING HOME and continuing into PLAYING THE FIELD. 
Jennifer Season's did a fabulous job at weaving Leslie and Peters attraction throughout the series, and I was so excited to get my hands on THROWING HEAT, and BOY WAS IT SMOKIN HOT!  Peter and Leslie lit up the pages with Flirty Banter, Intimate Touches, and some Very Very Frustrating Sexual Tension...but boy was EVERY MOMENT all the more fun. 
On the flip side, the emotions that each of these characters felt for each other, or hid from each other was heart-warming, heart-breaking and so powerful, you couldn't help but feel the emotion yourself.  I didn't know what to expect from Playboy Peter Kowalskin, but he was oh so much more than I had originally given him credit for, and he sure does right by Leslie, and for once, I think the heroine deserves the guy!!
Great Series, Fabulous New Author, and a MUST-READ of 2013!!

I have a new crush on Dustin Ackley of the Mariners! =D

Don't really have a favorite. I just started reading sports romance. But Derek Jeter is pretty fine.

Jane said...

Being a Yankees fan I'll have to go with Derek Jeter, but Justin Verlander is pretty hot, too.

Mike Trout of the Dodgers is very cute

I am not a baseball fan so I don't know of any sexy baseball players. Thanks for the opportunity to maybe win a book about one.

Sexiest player would definitely be Adam Wainwright the Pitcher for Cardinals. Or the gorgeous 3rd baseman David Freese. Too tough to choose one. But only would choose a Cardinal. Any other would just not be right. LOL
