Description:

Through the corridors of the Windy City’s criminal courts, single mother Libby Tucker knows exactly how far she’ll go to save her cancer-stricken son’s life. The undefeated defense attorney is prepared to take her fight all the way to the majors.

Circumstances force Libby to plead her case at the cleats of celebrity baseball player Banford Aidan Palowski, the man who discarded her at their college graduation. Libby has worked her backside bare for everything she’s attained, while Aidan has been indulged since he slid through the birth canal and landed in a pile of Gold Coast money. But helping Libby and living up to his biological duty could jeopardize the only thing the jock worships: his baseball career.

If baseball imitates life, Aidan admits his appears to be silver-plated peanuts, until an unexpected confrontation with the most spectacular prize that’s ever poured from a caramel corn box blindsides him. When he learns about his son’s desperate need, it pricks open the wound he’s carried since he abandoned Libby and the child.

All Libby wants is a little anonymous DNA, but Aidan has a magical umpire in his head who knows Libby’s a fateball right to the heart. When a six-year-old sage and a hippy priestess step onto the field, there’s more to settle between Libby and Aidan than heartache, redemption, and forgiveness.

My Thoughts:

This book was sent to me via Holly from Full Moon Bites.  It follows the story of Aidan Palowski a baseball player, who let the one great thing in life slide by him.  Libby Tucker who had a one night stand with the baseball player and wound up pregnant with his son, Cass.  Cass is battling cancer and it's up to Libby to save him.  Libby a hard nosed lawyer is using to being able to solve anything that comes her way but with Cass this is one thing she needs Aidan's help for.  She contacts him and tells him she needs his DNA.  After being angry and upset he decides he's not going to let Libby get away a second time.

This was a great story about the dedication parents have for their kids to protect them, and how to move on from situations that pop up.  Aidan felt like a real character you were walking next to or reading his mind.  Libby is definitely a character I'm sure alot of single mom's can relate too.  Busting her butt to give Cass everything he needed in life.  Cass strikes me as an old soul.  Wise beyond his years.  This book tugged at so many emotions betrayal, romance, happiness, sadness, etc.  It was great to be able to be a part of this book tour.
