Book Description (from amazon)

Will the bad-boy pitcher strike out when it comes to love?

Shy music teacher Sophia Ballis has sworn off men. After a bad experience with a college jock she decided it was better to be alone than to get burned again. She focused on her education and now her new job at a local private school.

Professional baseball pitcher Paxton Hughes is a player both on and off the field. He’s signed to the Kingston Crushers to bring home the coveted championship title. Nothing can get in his way. Serious relationships don’t mix with a life on the road and he never loses focus on the game. One-night stands are his specialty for a reason.

While out jogging one spring morning, the two collide, setting their course in motion. Pax is immediately drawn to the unassuming beauty. Sophia is aware of his reputation and decides one night of meaningless sex with the attractive Texas charmer is just what she needs to get over her self-imposed dry spell. Pax has more than a one-night stand on his mind, but will his bad-boy persona and demanding schedule ruin any chances of a happily ever after?

My Thoughts

STEALING HIS HEART was book 1 in the Kingston Heat Series. Ms Jade will have you loving Sophia and Pax’s romance right from the start. Sophia was your typical girl next door introvert and Pax was the “player” having someone new every night. Sophia on the other hand was a music teacher who really didn’t date much since her heart was broken. As the romance between the two of them blossoms, the scenes get pretty steamy!

I have to say that this was a great read for me although the beginning was slow. By the time I got to the middle, things picked up. Usually I read mystery and/or psychological thrillers but Ms. Jade had me hooked.  This was your typical boy meets girl, they fall in love, and live “happily ever after.” The story had a natural flow, but was pretty predictable. This would be my only criticism. The plot was believable and the characters were well-developed and likable. The secondary characters added to the story line and at one point really pissed me off. This should be a must read for lovers of contemporary romance and/or romance in general. It will definitely be a quick and enjoyable read.
