Strike is the second book in the Completion Series. There is no connection to Play (book I) except the sports theme. Strike is a standalone HEA novel.
Nineteen-year-old Jaycee Shumway breaks into professional baseball player, Reed Tyler’s home, to steal the second most valuable set of balls he owns. Neither of them expect their striking attraction or battle of wills to lead them to a homerun.
Jaycee has more than herself to worry about. When Reed discovers she has a younger brother and sister, he’s quickly caught up in their world of need and heartbreak.
Baseball season begins and the separation puts Reed and Jaycee’s game on hold. With bases loaded and hearts on the line, will Reed convince Jaycee that she needs him to win or will Jaycee strike out and walk off the field forever?
This New Adult book is intended for mature audiences.
His husky laughter rang out, drowning me in the sexy sound. Why couldn’t he snort like a pig or something just as ridiculous when he laughed?
“You’re very concerned about my balls,” he said when his laughter died away.
My smartass mouth took front and center. “If you remember… I’ve seen your balls and it would be unsporting of me not to be concerned.”
Oh, God, his eyes sparkled and I would do anything to take back my words and the thoughts they conjured.
Reed wouldn’t let it pass. “I’ve seen a fair amount of you and that also causes me concern. So much concern that I didn’t sleep well last night.”
“A gentleman wouldn’t bring that up.”
This time, his laugh was plain evil. “A gentleman wouldn’t have cut away your shirt and bra. A gentleman wouldn’t have admired your tits. A gentleman wouldn’t do this…”
I had no time to prepare for what happened next. His warm lips took mine at the same time his hands closed around my upper arms, trapping me. My entire body reacted to the kiss. I grew light-headed, my breasts ached, and my heart almost exploded out of my chest. But it was the taste of his mouth that had me squeezing my thighs together. I never knew anyone could taste this good. There was no description on earth that did it justice. I wanted to eat him whole.
Yes ladies and gentlemen Holly Roberts have done it yet again. What a fantastic book “Strike was, sweet Lord the sex scenes the intensity that Reed bought to the book and Jaycee, such a tortured soul, her insecurities boy. I loved the way how Holly told this story, she gave the characters such that depth that you can feel every emotions that they were going through when it was happening. I will start off by talking about Jaycee’s little brother and sister Bitsy, loved them. I love the fact that even though Jo was only fifteen he could try to be a voice of reason for his sister, and Bitsy was just the typically cute little six years old. Now I will get into Jaycee, I bet she was expecting such an end result when she made her first plan. And Reed, sweet heavens Reed was everything that we ladies love in a male character when we’re reading a book. Alpha tendencies, kinky as hell and sex appeal from here until timbuck two. He was just straight sex on a stick, I thought I was in love with “Mac truck” from Play, but hot damn I think Reed just took my heart. Not only did Holly brought us some hot, and when I say hot, I mean put your kindle, phone or iPad on fire kind of hot. All I have to say is that I will never look at a chair the same ever again. Great writing by a very talented author, I fell in love with Holly’s writing ever since “Play” and I know from there on she’s won a fan.
