Stopping Short: A Hot Baseball Romance (Diamond Brides Book 6) - Mindy Klasky

The Characters

Drew Marshall and Jessica Barnes

The Story

Drew seems to be an average guy trying to overcome his past and live his life. I do believe he is presented as a “player” in the beginning, he really doesn’t exhibit any of that type of behavior once he meets Jessica. That could be because he and Jessica are thrown into a whirlwind fake engagement within moments of meeting each other.

Apparently Drew has spit in Ross Parker’s jell-o because he seems to have a personal vendetta against Drew. It’s never explained what Ross’s motivation is. I’m thinking he’s just a dillhole and bored. Needless to say Jessica and Drew go through the ringer trying to save Drew’s career, while reclaiming Jessica’s and falling in love.

I enjoyed their story, but was not particularly overwhelmed with love for it.
