All-star catcher Dylan Prosser always has his head in the game. Accustomed to keeping opponents from stealing bases, Dylan is completely focused on getting the team to the playoffs no matter what the cost. He definitely doesn’t expect anyone to steal his heart and turn his life upside down–least of all, a stray dog and a beautiful girl.
After the ultimate abandonment by her family, Savannah Monroe channels her savior-complex tendencies into helping animals because they can't hurt her like people can. Life at the animal rescue shelter has always provided the security and personal reward that she needs to be happy while protecting her heart.
But as she works with Sadie, Savannah soon realizes that his dog isn’t the only one who needs saving…

Cocktails and Books received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect our opinion of the book or the content of our review.

This is a sweet baseball romance.  I love stories about baseball players and dog rescuing is close to my heart, so I enjoyed this story.  It is the third book in the Knights of Passion series and each book is a stand-alone.

This story centers on Dylan Prosser, the new catcher for the Georgia Knights. Dylan first meets Savannah Monroe when he reluctantly agrees to foster a pitbull.  Since he spends so much time playing baseball and traveling with the team, Savannah offers to help with the dog.  Dylan is serious and his sole focus is on baseball.  He has recently been traded to the Georgia Knights and is having a difficult time trying to fit in with the guys.  His teammates find Dylan hard to get to know and distant.

Savannah Monroe had dedicated her life to rescuing dogs and all her time and money goes into helping dogs and she hopes to someday open her own shelter. Dylan has never met a woman who is as fun and open as Savannah and she intrigues him.  She is honest, upfront and and only cares about rescuing dogs.

I enjoyed these two together.  Even though Savannah and Dylan are the total opposites, they are good for each other and they help balance each other out.  Savannah helps Dylan lighten up and Dylan puts some structure into Savannah’s life.  They are each so caught in their own lives they have never made any time for a relationship.  Once they meet, they start to open up and try to spend time together.  There is a strong attraction between them and lots of chemistry.  I enjoyed the story and the characters, my only issue with the book, is its slow pace, I wish it had moved a little faster.

I love a contemporary romance loaded with banter and chemistry with a protective alpha male pursuing a feisty female. When I’m not reading I’m spending time with my family and fostering dogs. I've been reviewing for Cocktails and Books since April 2013.
