Barefoot William Series
No Time to Explain
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Who says romance has gone to the dogs?
Richmond Rogues’ left-fielder Joe “Zoo” Zooker has his own ritual for the start of spring training—a weekend of pure pleasure, including as many pretty faces and curvaceous bodies as he can charm into his bed. After that, he’s all about baseball, especially with hungry minor leaguers eager for their own shot at the majors, just waiting for him to strike out. But when a beautiful woman with a smart mouth brushes off his flirting, he’s determined to go to bat as often as it takes to win a smile aimed only at him.
Stevie may be new to the beach town of Barefoot William, but she’s seen plenty of charmers like hot and hunky Zoo before. Managing her aunt’s doggie daycare business, she’s up to her ears in rowdy puppies—and she doesn’t need a lifelong hound like Zoo breaking her heart. Still, there’s no denying the attraction between them, and as spring training heats up, lust suddenly begins to look a lot like love . . .
It’s still all about Baseball, but now it’s also about the beach, dogs, and just having fun in the sun. I enjoy where the new series has been taken me.
Kate Angell’s books have always been fun and easy reads. Perfect for lazy summer days. Her Richmond Rogues are alphas, jocks, heartbreakers and guys who know how to have fun. Joe “Zoo” Zooker was no expectation. He had his own posse of party girls and baseball bunnies. He wasn’t interested in relationships or anything committed – until he met Stevie. Neither of Kate Angell’s guys were ever interested in relationships until they met the ONE.
Same with Joe and Stevie.
They met at the beach boardwalk, Joe helped Stevie out of pickle and suddenly they met again and again. His dog needed a doggie daycare – Stevie’s aunt owned one. Stevie won a bridal shoot but needed a groom – Joe to the rescue. The more they spent time together, the more explosive the chemistry between them became.
It’s always interesting to see a self-proclaimed single fall. Not immediately, but over time, and without him ever acknowledging it he eventually succumbs to the ONE.
Even so Joe wasn’t on the market for a girlfriend, he was an incredibly well liked guy by women and men. He was sociable, friendly, charming, and a true catch. He just couldn’t see himself with just one woman, tied down, thinking about more than just the next game.
Stevie, didn’t plan on finding herself in the vicinity of one Joe “Zoo” Zooker, but circumstances were known to change plans, and suddenly she was living next door to a professional baseball player. Stevie, had dreams of her own and being attracted to Joe wasn’t planned nor wanted, but she also couldn’t turn it off. And the more she got to know him, the harder it was to keep her distance.
Both, Joe and Stevie were wonderful characters. Easily likable and relatable. But Kate Angell’s characters were always like that. It’s pretty much a given that whenever I read one of her novels, I’m having a great time.
