Win the game. Lose your heart.

Everyone knows who I am and that I could have any female fan I want. That's supposed to be the "perk" of playing left field for the Boston Renegades. But I don't want just any woman; I want her.

She should be just another face in the crowd, but I can't stop thinking about the one night we spent together-and her look of regret the morning after.

Because Saylor Blackwell is the kind of woman who haunts a man. Smart, sexy as hell, and one of the best managers in the business. She's every ballplayer's dream woman. And I'd do anything to make things right with her.

I'm done sitting on the bench when it comes to Saylor Blackwell. Time to swing for the fences.

Whenever I wake up with a hangover, I often ask myself why I drank so much and promise that I’ll never do it again. That promise is something I’ve been breaking for the past few days, and up until now, I didn’t care.

I had hoped the booze would muddy my memory of last night, but it hasn’t. Every word she said, every expression she had, every punch to my chest to get me out of her apartment is crystal clear. I fucked up, and I don’t even know how. All I know is that the sobs I heard on the other side of Saylor’s door last night were enough to sober my stupid ass up.

For hours, I sat against her door, until a resident suggested I leave or they were going to call the police. If I hadn’t been arrested ear- lier, I probably would have encouraged them to dial Boston’s Finest. Another man might understand my plight. The woman that I want to be with kicked me out of her house, and while I probably deserved it, I didn’t want to leave until she stopped crying. I didn’t want to be the one to walk away in her time of need.

But as egos go—and believe me, mine is huge—I couldn’t let it get in the way any longer, so I walked my drunk ass back home with my tail between my legs, only to stay up all night while the booze wore off, knowing that I had to live with whatever I’d done to Saylor.

She’s the last person in the world who I want to hurt, and she’s the one person who can save me. Not only from a life behind bars, but from myself. When I’m with her, I’m a different person. The cocky son of a bitch whom everyone is used to doesn’t exist when she’s near me, and frankly, that is the man I like, or at least I used to. It’s easier being a fucking douche. It’s second nature to me and comes with the territory of being named one of the city’s most eligible bachelors.

Except when I’m with Saylor, I can be the man who hides in the shadow of that Travis Kidd. I can be the kind of man who doesn’t have to have a one-liner available or wink in order to get a phone number. When I’m with her, life outside of baseball starts to have a meaning, a fucking purpose.

**4.5 Stars**

The Boys of Summer series is back! Unlike the first two books in the series, this book has more of off field life of Boston Renegades Player Travis Kidd. I love this series by Heidi and Travis's story is one I have been looking forward too. Let me tell you, this book didn't disappoint! I loved everything about Travis and Saylor.

Travis Kidd is the resident womanizer of the Boston Renegades so when his extra curricular activities start to catch up with him you aren't sure whether to feel bad for him or think he deserves it. The more you learn about the situation though, you start to see this side of Travis you weren't prepared for! You see a man who wants to change for a woman who drives him crazy- his publicist Saylor.

Saylor has her hands full being a single mom and sports publicist. So when she finds one of her clients, Travis Kidd, in a situation that flat out sucks she is assigned to babysit him to make sure he stays out of trouble. What she wasn't prepared for was the attraction she has for him. She knows it's been there and has been there for a bit, but because he is a client she isn't able to do anything about it.

I LOVED Travis and Saylor's story. There was something about Saylor that brings out this side to Travis I wasn't prepared for. I loved watching them together. I loved watching Travis with Lucy, Saylor's daughter. But what I loved most about this story is Travis and Saylor coming together. Travis knew all along that he was in love with Saylor and watching him do some pretty amazing things to help protect her and Lucy flat out proved just how much he truly did love her.

I hope we get more from Heidi in this series. I love it and I want to see the others get their happy endings now as well.
