    Adored it!

    Adored this one! As a debut novel this one definitely hits it out of the park (sorry had to)! Nate and Dorie were absolutely adorable and the push pull of their relationship was highly entertaining. The secondary characters, specifically Nate's sisters and her family were hilarious. After everything seemed to come so easily to Nate it was fun to watch him have to work hard at convincing Dorie that what they had was more than a fling. The dual POV's made this perfect. Understanding where they were both coming from and what they wanted made the story that much more interesting. Can't wait to read more from this author. I highly recommend this one.

    Fantastic first book

    I like that Doyle has Dorie as the one that is running – usually it’s the guy, so it is kinda refreshing. Although I have to be honest, most of the time I don’t like the way the girl is portrayed when she’s hesitant to get involved, but Dorie actually makes a lot of sense. I wish she’d been a little more open to communicating her concerns but I can totally see how I wouldn’t if I was in her shoes :) When you meet your famous high school crush and find him to be even more attractive in person, how are you to resist … but then again how are you to truly believe that he could want you long term when you are just an average Jane? Celebrities live in a world that most people can’t even begin to understand and trying to figure out how to live there too would be hard for almost anyone. So I totally get why Dorie would believe that it can’t work ... and why she’s willing to take whatever time she can get with Nate. Nate is made even more attractive by the fact that, even though he seemed to have forgotten it for a while, at heart he’s just a small town guy. He’s lost his way a little and as part of that he lost contact with those that are important to him. But a personal crisis sends him home and it doesn’t take him long to remember who he really is … and to fall for the feisty new librarian. Convincing her though might be the hardest things he’s even done but he's willing to man up :) Even though we spend most of our time focusing on Nate & Dorie, there are a lot of supporting characters that Doyle gives us just enough of to be intriguing. There’s a lot of backstory that I’m still curious about but considering that Nate is the first of 5 in his group I’m sure I just need to be patient and wait for the rest of the books :) Plus, if she’s up to it, there are Dorie’s brothers and Nate’s teammates … all of whom are just begging for a HEA of their own! Doyle handles the average girl/hottie celebrity thing amazingly well and to me their struggles are real. I was rooting for them to figure it out every step of the way - from that first absolutely adorable meet-cute to the fantabulous ending (one of the places it seems a little farfetched to me, but fantabulous nonetheless). And I just found out that this is here first book. With interactions that pop, characters that intrigue and writing that just flows, I definitely can't wait to see what she brings next!

    Great debut novel!

    4 1/2 STARS! An explosive debut book by Jen Doyle! It's sweet, it's fun, it's way sexy! I laughed out loud on more than one occasion, totally enjoyed it, and will definitely pick up another book by this author when it comes out. When MLB catcher Nate Hawkins finds himself in the middle of a media scandal while trying to recover from a serious car-accident, he decides he needs to get away from the madness and heads home to Iowa. He's got three weeks to try to achieve some calmness in his life before he has to report back to Chicago for spring training with his team. Librarian Dorie Donelli has had a huge crush on Nate since she was 13 years old, but never expected him to show up unexpectedly at her apartment. Once the initial mix-up is straightened out, neither of them can ignore the major attraction flaring between them. Can Nate convince Dorie that this is not just a temporary fling between them?
