“Relationships 101―never chase a woman who doesn't want to be caught.” Is my favourite quote from this book and describes this book very well. This is a very short novella that was a bit slow at the start but ended quickly to the HEA we all love to read. This is a new author for me and I must say I very much enjoyed there writing style and story. The characters were relatable and likeable with a few secondary characters I am looking forward to reading about more in the future books as this is book one of “Texas Playmakers”. I loved the banter and chemistry between Calvin and Josie as they both take their journey into there changing world.
Calvin Ramsey has returned home to the Last Stand after being dropped by his baseball team not just for the rest of the season but for good. He needs time to think about what he should do next. He found his Grandfather recovering from an accident and his mother away overseas, all he was unaware of before turning up to his childhood home. But his biggest surprise was the sexy caretaker his mother had hired to look after her home and animals in her absence.
Josie Vance was hiding something from Cal and he was unsure if he could trust her. A woman from his world keeps secrets to gain what they want. But the more time he spends back home and with Josie he started to have to fight the feelings he had for her and keep his distance as she was differently not showing interested in him.
“Of all the women he could have chosen, why was he so taken with a mystery woman who’d made it clear she didn’t want to get to know him better?”
Josie was not happy with the arrival of her employee’s son to the homestead next to the Rough Hollow Ranch in Last Stand. She was happy and contented with her life her and was slowly getting to know Everett Ramsey an earning his trust and she learned all the new roles she had to do to keep the homestead working while Hailey Decker was away. You could say that Josie was hiding or recovering from some hard time of her past that she would very much like to keep to herself. She could not fall for another player that would break her heart or do worse again.
