Too Hot to Handle (The Boys of Summer #2) by Katie Rose ~ #bookreview

Too Hot to Handle (The Boys of Summer #2)

Katie Rose’s Boys of Summer series returns for a delicious double-header—with the story of total opposites who are drawn to each other like moths to a flame.

Nikki Case is no fan of baseball. Her ex gambled away a fortune on the sport, and now her PR firm has tasked her with cleaning up the league’s most notorious bad boys. The New Jersey Sonics are known for wild womanizing and booze-fueled brawls, so Nikki expects the worst. Her first stop in the battle to win hearts and minds is star hitter Jake Baldwin—a legendary ladies man so smokin’ he threatens to melt her tough-girl armor.

Although his teammates prank her without mercy, Jake admires the way Nikki gives as good as she gets. She may be the queen of frost, but there’s kindling beneath those sultry curves—and he’s just the man to ignite it. But when a PR nightmare lands the Sonics in headlines across the country, Nikki is ready to walk. Only then does Jake realize how important she is to the Sonics’ success—and that winning the love of a good woman is no game.

My Too Hot to Handle Review...

So, normally I'm a fan of sports romance but this particular storyline  of PR girl hooks up with one of the athletes has been done too many time which made it bland and predictable.

Here we have Jake the 'player' who can't be tamed.

Then we have Nikki who is hired as the PR consultant to change around the image of the team.

Then we have a bet, a miscommunication, some assumptions, some misconceptions then the grand gesture.  Like I said predictable and bland. There was nothing that jumped out at me or really captured my attention.  I very easily could have done a DNF but I was holding out that maybe I would get more then the typical predictability but nope that was sadly not the case.

2.5 Bland thumbs up!
