Summary

When a single mom ends up playing an unwilling fake girlfriend to a charming playboy baseball player, love suddenly turns everything upside down in this fun, heartwarming multicultural romance.

Angel Gomez has never lived by the book. A Bronx-based unwed mother by the time she was sixteen, Angel's personal mission has always been to show the world that a Puerto Rican girl is not to be messed with--especially by a man. The only thing that matters to Angel, now, is providing for her son and earning enough tips at the club to complete her nursing degree along the way. Love is nowhere on her agenda.

Caleb "The Duke" Lewis is a star pitcher for the Bronx Bolts whose romantic escapades make delicious fodder for gossip columns. But lately he's been trying to keep a lower profile--so much so that when he meets Angel, first while she's in her nurse uniform and the next time behind the bar, she has no idea who Duke is, fails to fall for his obvious charm, and ends up throwing a drink in his face! She is the perfect woman for Duke...to fool the tabloids into thinking he's finally settling down. But what begins as a charade soon has Duke and Angel hurtling into a full-blown romance that rocks each of their worlds and begs the question: Is this the real deal--or are some love stories just too good to be true?

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Single-mom Angel Gomez is about to complete her nursing degree but not soon enough to alleviate the pressure of working several part-time jobs. When not on rotation at a clinic in the Bronx, she bartends at an upscale nightclub where New York Yankees star pitcher Caleb the Duke Lewis' drunken pass prompts her to throw a drink in his face. An apologetic Duke encounters Angel again at the Bronx clinic, where he's been secretly receiving treatment for a possibly career-ending injury. When the media finds out he's there, Duke begs Angel to pretend they're dating to throw the swarm of paparazzi off the scent. Unpretentious Angel is impressed by his good looks and charm, but this all-star's dating game is hardly perfect. Though life in the big leagues may look glamorous, Angel isn't fooled by the phonies who flock around Duke, and if he isn't careful, he might lose his last chance at something real. Lozada and Lorincz's multicultural Cinderella story and spicy blend of urban fiction and sports romance will please fans of Victoria Christopher Murray and Alexa Martin.--Kristina Giovanni Copyright 2019 Booklist"
