That’s what my mom is always saying: “The bigger you are, the harder you fall.” She’s talking about love—I’ve never been in it myself, but that doesn’t stop me from secretly matchmaking for my friends. Who would suspect me, a world class athlete, of meddling in other people’s love lives? I love Love, especially when it’s not me who’s doing the falling…
That’s what Hollis Westbrooke said when I asked her on a date. Well, propositioned her, actually—but it was all a big joke; one she doesn’t think is funny. My stomach is in knots since I might actually like this girl so the joke is on me. Hollis’s father is my boss—and she doesn’t date players.
The bigger they are, the harder they fall—especially when biggest player is me.
I am really enjoying this Trophy Boyfriends series from Sara Ney! Hard Fall is the second in the series, but can be read as a standalone. It follows baseball player Trace/Buzz and Hollis, who is the team owner’s daughter. Their meet-cute is a random run-in, but then they keep finding themselves in each other’s company over and over again. With each situation seemingly more awkward than the one before.
Of course, at first Hollis wants nothing to do with Buzz, as his reputation proceeds him. But as she gets to know him, Hollis learns that Trace, the man, is nothing like playboy Buzz. Still, Hollis is scarred from relationships past and is hesitant to let Trace in. But the more she gets to know him, the more she sees something that she likes in Trace.
The banter is snarky, sexy and witty, and Trace is a big ol’ teddy bear. When he falls, he falls hard and fast. And Hollis is the lucky lady who is on the winning side of his affections.
I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
