Review: Double Play by Jill Shalvis

Sigh. It's 9.35am, I just got to work about 15minutes ago and I'm already tired. Can someone explain this to me? Weather looks bleak, day looks bleak and I feel off. Luckily, I'm going to the bookstores this evening after work and to the movies - Transformers 2.

We had an announcement yesterday over at Breezing Through: we have a new blogger joining the team - Monroe :) As a result, to mark her debut as the BT team member, we bring you a buddy review of Double Play by Jill Shalvis. Click here for the review and I hope you're having a better day than I do :)

Double Play by Jill Shalvis
published by Berkley Sensation in July 2009

Getting to first base is a cinch... but getting home will take a grand slam...
Pace Martin is the ace pitcher for the Pacific Heat. He's got the arm, the experience, and the wins. He's also got the pain, the pressure, and the possible end of his career looming over him. The last thing he needs now is a distraction, even if it comes in the form of a tough, beautiful, tell-it-like-it-is writer who sees past his defenses.

Holly Hutchins knows a good story when she sees one, and the tall, dark, and slightly attitude-challenged Pace Martin fits the bill. But when she realizes there's more at stake than just a win, she starts to see the handsome, broad-shouldered jock in a different light.

Pace and Holly begin a seductive game, but in the face of unexpected betrayal and challenges, they'll have the courage to swing for the fences...


  1. You don't get to work until after 9? Must make for a long day.

    Sorry you're feeling blah. Can you play some music? That usually picks me up. :)

  2. Hey Nath
    Didn't know you were a Transformers fan. Loved both of them.The parents are hilariuos.

  3. Leslie - My hours are very flexible. Usually, I try to come in around 8.30am and work till 5 to 5.30pm. But I can flex either way for an hour. That's the great thing working academia.

    I feel better now... I should have tried playing music, indeed! :)

    Mary - I enjoyed it, but I think the first one was better. I don't know, it's almost as if he was trying too hard :)

    and yes, the parents are hilarious! LOL :P

  4. I'm glad the day got better so here's to a great Wednesday ;) Hopefully we'll now get a string of great weather for the rest of the summer - and well into October cause we deserve it!


  5. Cindy - Thanks Cindy!! It was a good day, LOL, didn't do much work... and the weather is gorgeous!
