Book Review: The Heat of the Moment by Katie Rose

Book Description:

     Physical therapist Jessica Hart has learned her lesson: Never date professional athletes. She's been down that road, and barely recovered after the relationship crashed and burned. Then Jessica meets Gavin King. An All-Star slugger with chiseled good looks, Gavin was traded to the Sonics because he hurt his knee sliding into second, and now his future is in her hands. Gavin's no bad boy—but he's tempting enough to make Jessica think twice about all her rules.

     Gavin is trying to find a comfortable routine. If he wants his old life back, he must take it easy, stay out of the limelight, and keep his distance from gorgeous redheaded physical therapists. The thing is, Gavin isn't the kind of guy to sit on his ass and let other people pull his weight. And when he sees something he wants, he can't help but fight for it, even if it means risking everything, even if it only lasts a single moment: like one kiss from Jessica.

**I received an ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.**

     This book is a great, quick sweet read.  To me, there was nothing rushed or forced between Jessica and Gavin.  

     Slugger Gavin King was traded from the Dodgers to the New Jersey Sonics because of a knee injury.  Once there, his swimsuit model girlfriend breaks up with him.  

     Jessica Hart, the Sonic's team physical therapist, dated another ballplayer that cheated on her (and thought it was okay because he was a "ballplayer" and it went with the territory).  So, she is a little reserved when it comes to her attraction to Gavin.  I thought Gavin was really sweet and understanding when it came to Jessica and her reservations about his profession.

     I finished this book in about 5 hours.

Rating: 4 out of 5
