Product Description

A stormy night changes their lives forever...

In USA TODAY Bestselling author Pamela Aares' LOVE BATS LAST, (The Tavonesi Series, #1), the baseball diamond isn't the only field for all-star player Alex Tavonesi; he also runs his family's prestigious vineyard. What he can't seem to run is his love life. He's closing in on the perfect vintage and the perfect game, but so far the perfect woman has eluded him.

Veterinarian Jackie Brandon is eluding her aristocratic past and memories of a soccer star who jilted her just before their wedding. She devotes herself to a marine mammal rescue center on the northern California coast, where hundreds of seals and sea lions are washing up dead.

A chance meeting in a midnight storm brings Alex and Jackie together to rescue a stranded whale. Watching her work, he realizes she's the passionate, courageous woman he thought he'd never find—he just has to overcome her deep distrust of jocks. Jackie’s passion and courage lead her to discover what's killing the sea mammals. The culprits want to silence her, and Alex is the only one standing in their way. What will he sacrifice to save the woman he loves?

While each book in The TAVONESI SERIES can be read as a standalone, you'll likely enjoy reading all the books in the series:
Love Bats Last (Book 1, Jackie and Alex)
Thrown By Love (Book 2, Chloe and Scotty)
Fielder's Choice (Book 3, Matt and Alana)
Love On The Line (Book 4, Cara and Ryan)
Aim for Love (Book 5, Sabrina and Kaz)

This is a romance with some mystery and mayham. The hero is a baseball player aiming for a triple crown. The heroine is a vet specializing in marine animals. Something is harming the seals and sea lions and vet Jackie Brendon is determined to figure out what is going on and who is responsible. Little does she know that she is putting her life at stake.Her past history with en makes it hard to trust again, especially when an athlete is involved. How they come to a happy ending makes for an interesting and educational (at least a little) read with characters I came to care for.It didn't hurt that I like baseball.

I had a hard time getting into this book. I found it developed slowly. It got better towards the last third of the book. Had some excitement and the characters finally came together. I don't know yet if I will continue reading the series. The characters just didn't hold my interest.
