This boxed set includes standalone books 1-3.
Book 1 - Stealing Home
Ten years ago, Dylan McCormick and Maggie Jennings were two eighteen-year-olds in love.
With a cold father and absent mother at home, he was drawn to her warmth, her humor, and her kindness. She was the best thing that had ever happened to him. But then he had to let her go so she could have a chance at a better life. One that didn’t involve late-night diners and rusted out cars and counting pennies. And so, he shattered his own heart to give her a chance at something more.
Maggie thought Dylan would be her future, not her past. But for ten years now, that’s where he’s been—until he gets traded to the Dallas Longhorns, the pro baseball team Maggie works for. And she can see firsthand that the boy she once loved is now a man, but with the same passion for the game, the same athleticism and tenderness that drew her to him. But a decade ago, he chose baseball over her. What if he breaks her heart again?
Dylan wants a second chance with the woman he never stopped loving. And this time, he’s going to fight for her.
Book 2 - Wild Card
Hunter Blake wasn’t planning to get married in Vegas. Then again, he doesn’t plan much, living life by the seat of his pants as he tries to outrun the towering shadow of his MLB Hall of Famer father’s reputation. But when he wakes up next to Marlowe Story—his friend with benefits, his partner in crime, and the woman of his dreams—with a ring on his finger, for once he doesn’t want to run from the consequences of his actions. Hunter feels like a different man when he’s with Marlowe. A better man. Somehow, she’s able to pull him out of his own head and help him tame his self-destructive tendencies.
Marlowe Story’s country music songs tell stories of fairy tale love, but Marlowe doesn’t believe in happily ever after. She barely survived her last relationship, and she refuses to let herself fall for anyone ever again. Not even her friend with benefits, Hunter, no matter how safe she feels with him. How cherished and protected. He’s passionate and driven, and makes her wish things could be different for them.
But they can’t, even though they decide to see the marriage through for the publicity. And Marlowe knows that if she’s going to survive this situation, there’s one simple rule she has to follow: do not fall in love with Hunter Blake.
Book 3 - Caught Looking
Abby Gossman is unstoppable. An Olympic champion, she’s now blazing a trail for women in baseball as the first ever female coach for an MLB team. Her dreams are coming true, even if one of them has to stay in the shadows. Because if anyone knew she was dating Jake Landon, an All-Star catcher from another team, it would ruin her reputation.
But then Jake gets traded to the Longhorns, and the relationship is over. As madly in love with her as he is, he won’t ask Abby to sacrifice her career for him. She matters to him more than anything, and he’ll do whatever it takes to make her happy. Even if it’s killing him not to have her in his arms and in his bed. Even if he wants to throttle any other man who looks at her.
But Abby can’t seem to stay away from sexy, charming Jake, and before long, they’re sneaking around. Hot hotel hookups, clandestine meetings after dark, forbidden rendez-vous whenever and wherever they can. Because as much as they’re together, it’s never enough.
But what’s in the shadows has a way of coming to light, and when the spotlight shines on their forbidden love, Abby will have to choose between Jake, the man of her dreams, and the career she’s sacrificed everything for.
