After an unexpected twist of fate, All-Star catcher Easton Wylder is left questioning the loyalty of everyone around him.
Even the woman who shares his bed, Scout Dalton.
But if Easton thought being uprooted to the last place he expected was the only challenge life had to throw at him, he was dead wrong.
With an ailing shoulder and his career in limbo, his decision to make an unexpected change leads him to question everything – Scout’s love, family loyalties, and whether he can conquer the one obstacle he’s never been able to overcome. The secret he’s never shared with anyone.
He may be a man pushed to his limits, but he’s hell-bent on proving his worth no matter the cost.
We knew that things were about to change for Easton and Scout and where we were left at the end of the first book is a scary place. Thanks K Bromberg for that!
We pick up when Easton learns that he’s being traded – but has no idea where or why. Scout seems to have seen something in some paperwork that was spilled in her meeting, and changes her story to protect him but of course he doesn’t see it like that.
So in this second and final book of the duet, we get to see a lot of ups and downs for everyone, secrets come out from just about everyone that we’ve met and there are so may twists and turns that you really have no idea what’s going to happen.
Easton lands on another team, and of course hurts himself again. his future as a player is up in the air and that means that he’s both depressed and really unsure of what will come next. Scout is still stuck back in Austin, working for the team that let her boyfriend go, resenting every moment of it, just so that she can secure her dying father’s last wish to have a contract with the team.
Then there’s Santiago – the guy who both injured Easton to begin with and now has taken his place on the ACES. there’s something fishy going on with him and we can’t quite figure out what it is. There’s also Cal, Easton’s father who’s got his own level of shady going on, and all together we see a really complex story develop and then come to a close.
There are so many questions throughout this final installment. Will Scout and Easton find happiness, will they figure out how to make their personal relationship thrive while also making sure to secure their futures professionally? What other shoe is around to drop to come in the way of all that they’re working towards?
At least the good thing that we as readers know that we’ll get is not just a complex complicated story, but one that has so much true romance and passion – that it helps carry things through. We don’t end where anyone thinks, but i think that the conclusion answers a lot of questions. I hope you guys enjoy!
