Summary
Angel Gomez only wants to get through nursing school and earn enough to support her mother and her son, Jose. Her bartending job helps bring in some extra cash, and the last thing she's interested in is flirting or men in general. Caleb "The Duke" Lewis is an up and coming star for the Yankees, known for getting around. However, his last breakup left him distracted and made him turn to drink. When he's caught by the Yankees manager at a party instead of training, he's suspended and sent back to the Bronx to get his head straight. Angel and Duke's worlds collide one night at the club and sparks fly. Though Angel wants nothing to do with Duke, he has no intention of letting her slip through his fingers. She isn't star-struck by his fame, and this might be just what he needs to get things in order. He'll do anything to convince her...even make her an offer she can't refuse.
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"
