In Katie Rose’s irresistible battle of wits, a case of mistaken identity lands a female fan in bed with a sexy superstar—and in major-league trouble.
House-sitting for a rich and famous friend has its perks, and Darcy Hamel isn’t shy about enjoying them. Especially when it means scoring a ticket to an exclusive fashion show hosted by the New Jersey Sonics. An avid baseball fan, Darcy has always dreamed of meeting the team—especially the starting pitcher whose body is as hot as his fastball. But there’s a catch. The gala is by invitation only. To get behind the velvet rope, mild-mannered Darcy will have to pose as party girl Lydia Logan.
Schmoozing is one of the downsides of fame, but Chase Westbrook knows how to liven up even the dullest event. And nothing spices a night up more than a beautiful socialite with a naughty reputation. What Chase doesn’t expect is a hint of sweetness beneath her sultry façade. Flirtation turns to seduction and leaves him aching for more. Chase just doesn’t know who the real Lydia is: the spoiled tease crying foul over some missing diamonds or the alluring woman making a play for his heart.
I really wanted to like this book because I love the mistaken identity stories and I really love sports romances, but I did NOT like this book. I liked Darcy and that she tried over and over to tell the truth of her identity. Even though Chase was mature for his age, he ended up acting like a total douche. I found it totally unbelievable that he jumped to Lydia’s bed so easily when he heard Darcy admit her love for him.
And for Darcy to feel so guilty over the mistaken identity when she tried to tell them who she really was just made her look pathetic. She needed to be a stronger character and she should have made Chase work harder to get back in her good graces after ditching her for the real Lydia.
These characters and this plot had so much potential but fell very flat for me.
