Trending on social media is her nightmare.

Beth Evans, former Olympic golden girl, known for a national scandal and daughter of a rising political star, is more than happy to stay out of the spotlight, living life as a normal single mom in a small Jersey town. The last thing Beth needs is Twitter’s favorite bad boy–Marc Demoda–walking into her life to stir things up.

Marc lives for the three b’s; baseball, bars, and ball bunnies, until the unthinkable happened. An accident destroys his shoulder and his career, leaving him desperate to get back in the game. Too bad no one hires notorious bad boys to coach. With his reputation on life support, Marc finds his saving grace might be the feisty blonde he can’t get out of his head.

When pictures of Beth and Marc’s chance encounter blow up on Twitter, they strike a deal to avoid further scandals and fix their image. But even in the harsh public spotlight, their fake relationship begins to feel real. Beth's growing feelings for Marc have her questioning if she can permanently handle the limelight, just as Marc wonders if Beth might mean more than the game.

My Thoughts: 

This book follows former Olympic gold medalist all around good girl Beth Evans whose now a widowed mom taking care of raising kids.  She leads a normal life and doesn't do well with unwanted attention.  But deep down she wants a guy to be there to talk to and she misses what she had with her husband.  Will she ever find love again?

Marc Demoda is an ex-proball player whose injury ended his career.  Now he spends his time chasing girls and drinking.  He's media life is anything but positive and after answering a call to fix a clients dishwasher he comes face to face with Beth Evans and finds himself pulled toward her.  Will Beth be the one thing Marc can't claim?

I was such a fun story to read about Mars and Beth finding their voices and deciding what was really important to them in life.  It was such a fun ride and one I'd love to take again.
