In Thrown by a Curve by Jaci Burton, Alicia Riley is a woman who loves her job in sports medicine and working for her hometown baseball team. She’s confident in her job and who she is. That is until she must help the handsome curve_350star pitcher with his recovery process after a shoulder injury. She knows she can help him with her non-traditional rehab ideas, but the more time they spend together, the more they can’t deny their mutual attraction.

Garrett Scott is not used to failing at anything. He has been focused on his career path for so long that his injury messes with his head. He needs to find some way to refocus and thinks he will find that in no nonsense, beautiful Alicia. Only he doesn’t realize how much of a connection they have and how difficult it will be to ignore that connection while he works with her on his path to recovery.

Jaci Burton has another wonderful story on her hands here. She writes such captivating characters that are easy to follow. Alicia and Garrett are both strong people who are proud of their careers but blend together very well. They understand each others passion and drive which leads to some incredible chemistry together!

I highly recommend this to fans of contemporary romance.

She thinks she knows this player—but he has a few surprise moves.

For Alicia Riley, her job as a sports therapist for the St. Louis Rivers baseball team is a home run—until she becomes the primary therapist for star pitcher, Garrett Scott. Out of the lineup with an injury, he’s short-tempered, hard to handle, and every solid inch, a man.

Right now, the only demand he’s making on Alicia is that she get him ready to pitch in time for opening day. Except the sexual chemistry between them is so charged, Alicia’s tempted to oblige Garrett just about anything. But both their careers are at stake—one bad move and it’s game over for both of them.

Garrett also feels the hot sparks between them, and the way he figures it, what better therapy is there than sex? Now all he has to do is convince the woman with the power to make the call.
