All-Star shortstop Matt Darrington has more than a problem. His wife died, and now he’s juggling a too-smart-for-her-britches six-year-old and the grueling pace of professional baseball. Worse, his daughter is mom shopping. When they explore a local ranch, she decides the beautiful, free-spirited tour guide is premium mom material. Matt thinks the sexy guide looks like Grade-A trouble. Alana Tavonesi loves her cosmopolitan life in Paris. But when she inherits the renowned Tavonesi Olive Ranch, she has to return to California and face obligations she never wanted. Selling the place is her first instinct, but life at the ranch begins to crack her open, exposing the dreams hidden inside her heart. On a lark she leads a ranch tour, where she meets Matt Darrington. His physical power and a captivating sensual appeal fire her in a way no man ever has, but he has a kid—and being a stepmom is a responsibility Alana will never be ready for. Still... she can’t keep her mind or her hands off him. When Matt’s daughter goes missing from a kid’s camp at the ranch, Alana organizes the search effort, knowing from experience the areas a bright child would be drawn to explore. As she and Matt work together to search for the little girl, Alana discovers that father and daughter have won her heart. Yet it may be too late for love…

This was by far my favorite so far of the series! I am so in love with the characters in this book. I was happy to see that the two previous couples from book 1 and 2 had multiple appearances.
This one was not as sports related as number 2 was, but it did not take away from the story.
Loved all of the characters (Introduced to some new ones), the story line, loved everything about it really. This was a story line that had me on an emotional roller coaster from the start. I had heart twinges, a few teary eyed moments, and even a few lol moments. (Thank goodness I was the only one in the teachers lounge as I was reading so I didn't have to explain why I was teary eyed hehehe)
The dialogue flowed really well, the description to detail was easy to imagine and not overly done, and the character interactions were really good.
Would I recommend this book? Yes!
Would I read more from this author? Yep! Already emptied my pockets and bought...
Loved it! This was a story had me on an emotional roller coaster right from the very start. I loved Matt & Alana, but that doesn't mean I didn't want to shake them a few times for being so dang stubborn. But then again, when you start to really see just how screwed up their own family dynamic's are, it wasn't so surprising any more.
The sparks between these two were so HOT!!! And while they didn't seem to have any trouble connecting when it came to the sex, they sure did have trouble relating to each other when it came to the every day tasks, or just trying to openly communicate calmly with one another. They were always so quick to find some kind of fault in each other, even when there was really nothing major to find.
Loved little Sophie. What a sweet, little, precious gem she was. She stole my heart right from the start. Where Alana and Matt failed when it came to voicing their wants and needs with one another, Sophie more than excelled. I loved how even after...
