My major league career is stronger than ever, and women are flowing like cheap wine. I have life by the balls, and it feels like the party has just begun. I'm not ready for it to stop.
I'm Ace Newman. Heavy hitter. Superstar short stop. A Beast. The wild man. So what if I party a little, drink too much, and screw a different woman every night? So what if my teammates are getting younger every season and retirement is staring me in the face?
They can't get rid of me that easy. I'll do whatever it takes to stay in the game. I refuse to be tamed. Especially by any one woman.
Then why do I keep thinking about Holly...
Falling in love with the badass of baseball, party boy, and lifelong womanizer? No, thank you. Spending the night with the man? Yes, please. I'm strong enough to separate love and sex, so why not have some fun?
This trip to New York is supposed to be the perfect escape from my father and my boring life in Indiana. Ace is fun, exciting in the moment, but there can't be a future with the man. Yes, I feel something for him, something wildly delicious, but it's just sex, a friendship with amazingly hot benefits to distract me while I work to build my bakery business.
