"Single mother Sonny Miller has spent years avoiding love. A rotten childhood and an even rottener ex-boyfriend left her determined to protect her son—and herself—against the risks of romance. That is, until hotshot ballplayer JP Trudeau swaggers into her carefully constructed life, all sin-with-me eyes and irresistible grin. Sonny can't help but feel drawn to the sexy, confident man, even as every fiber of her being tells her to keep running the bases . . .
JP is known for being fast on his feet, not fast with his heart. But meeting Sonny and her boy sparks something in him—something he's never felt before, not from all the cleat-chasers in the major leagues. Sonny may be hell-bent on keeping him at arm's length no matter what, but this rookie has a plan. To get the girl, he must step up to the plate and convince her to take another chance on love . . . before this game gets rained out." ~ From Goodreads
First of all I'm writing this review in a steadily but slowly climbing fever so if this review reads odd, we'll just blame it on that...
You got to love a good Avon Romance! Playing the Field is no exception to the rule. Playing the Field has a genius mix of sports, chemistry and friction, the story of Sonny and her son is precious, I'm usually not into books with kids ( because let's face it they are mostly brats in books, reading about a well rounded kid is rare ) but I really liked Charlie, he wasn't the stereotypical well-used obstacle for the relationship between Sonny and JP.
I immediately took a liking to Sonny, she's a tough teenage momma ( if you still count 20 teenage, young none the less ) who grows up to be a strong woman who'd do anything for her son who is growing up and taking a little distance from her, leaving an open space she doesn't like or know what to do with. Cue in JP, star athlete and celebrity with a sensible head on his shoulders and no problem with kids. Now, cue in chemistry!
The romance was addictive, JP pursues Sonny who is trying to convince herself and JP that she isn't dating material, no matter how hot the lingering looks, or how sizzling the kisses or how amazing the... well, you know. ;) I always do love a good "hero chases the heroine" romance with hot chemistry and good storyline, hence Playing the Field was great success!
