Rhys Rivera is the star short-stop for the Longview Lumberjacks. Many know him, even more love him. He has a pretty face, a quick smile, and an air of danger about him that everyone seems to adore.
He’s not known as the bad boy of baseball for nothing.
It all started with his father, who decided to be a criminal mob boss, then die.
Fortunately for his uncle, Rhys wants absolutely nothing to do with the family business and runs before anyone can figure out which way is up.
By the time his uncle, the successor to his father’s criminal empire, thinks to look for him, Rhys has made too big of a name for himself to be taken out quietly, and he wants to keep it that way.
Fast forward eight years, and Rhys is living life one breath at a time, just waiting for the other shoe to drop. That shoe coming in the form of a nosy neighbor who has no idea just how hot she is in her mail carrier uniform.
Her sweet little body and positive outlook on life make him want to laugh at how naïve she is when it comes to the way of the world.
The harder he tries to stay away, the weaker he seems to get, until one day he decides to put his morals on hold long enough to satisfy his cravings.
One time is all he needs—or so he tells himself.
But then two pink lines change everything, and all of a sudden, he doesn’t have just himself to worry about anymore.

 This is book 3 in the There's No Crying in Baseball series, but can be read as a standalone.  Talk about coming together in the most unorthodox means...GEEZ! He's just a bad boy of baseball with what we find out has an even badder (is that even a word?) upbringing following him around. She's a sweet girl with a slight disability who helps out and comforts others as best she can. When she "meets" Rhys he's pretty much destined to leave this world any moment so she does the only thing she can; she sits at his bedside so when that moment comes at least he won't leave here alone. Except a higher power has other plans for him.

I may have said something like this before, but I think these two are my favorite love couple. I read this book in a matter of a few hours and did not want it to end. These two were so right for each other I could feel it in my blood. It was really twisty and emotional. And like all of Lani's books there were some humorous parts that will stick with ya (the delivery room arrival...all I'm sayin'!) I give this book 5 stars.

I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 8, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.
