A kiss in a dark alcove triggers the greatest challenge of their lives...
Ace pitcher Scotty Donovan has been traded from his longtime team—and hates it. But to his surprise, he now finds himself in the sweetest game of his life: winning the heart of smart, sexy physics professor Chloe McNalley.
Chloe loves teaching, but she's never fit into academia. When she falls for Scotty, she discovers his arms and heart are where she belongs. They share a passion for the game, a fascination for the mysteries of the universe and an increasing love for one another.
Then Chloe inherits Scotty's new team. As player and team owner, they shouldn't be dating. They try to hide their passion, until a blackmailer threatens them personally and professionally. Exposure could be the end of everything--Scotty's career, Chloe's team ownership, and their new love—unless they find a way to transcend the taboo standing between them.
Quotes and Praise “Pamela Aares' writing is absolutely flawless, she sets the scene well and develops incredible characters. What I love most is how she writes strong female leads. I feel like I actually know both Chloe and Scotty because the description and character development was so fantastic so I got really invested in the story and I was rooting for the HAE but I was also rooting for Chloe's success. The scenery descriptions were absolutely on point... perfectly balanced scenery description is the trademark of a great author in my opinion and Pamela Aares nailed it. And similarly to Love Bats Last, there is an undercurrent of mystery and suspense interlaced with a wonderful romance story. I give Thrown By Love a solid 5 smarty stars with a bonus star for the author writing such a phenomenal book.”—Lady Literary

"I highly recommend this series to any readers who love Nora Roberts or Bella Andre.... I could feel the breeze on my face as I read. I love it when an author can paint such a clear picture that it is as if you are right there."—Jen's Reviews, Top Goodreads reviewer

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
WOW! If you thought the first book in Pamela Aares Tavonesi Series was good, you sure don't want to miss this one!
I just love a romance that has suspense mixed in and the author does such a terrific job of developing her characters that the reader gets pulled into the story. Scotty and Chloe are both such wonderful people; they are kind, loving, sweet and yet they are from two completely different worlds.
I love it when I get so pulled into a story that I can experience it with deep emotion. I laughed and cried almost throughout the second half of this book.
Pamela Aares is a very gifted writer. Her character development is superb. I can't wait to read the rest of this series. You won't want to miss it either.
Great book 2 of the series. This one was more sports related (since both main characters are in the sports field) vs the first one.
Loved the characters, the story line, loved everything about it really.
The dialogue was great and the character interactions was really good. I loved how the main characters from book 1 crossed over into book 2. This was a multi pov book. Was this a hot, steamy, pantie melting sexy book...no...was it a sweet romance that could get your heart pumping and give you heart twinges...yes.
I am so loving this series and have ended up buying all 5 of the books.
Would I recommend this book? Yes!
Would I read more from this author? Yep! Already emptied my pockets and bought all from this series.
This book probably got me hooked on this series as who doesn't love a 'forbidden' romance? There are a number of summaries so I'll just say that it was a complicated and winding path to the hea but it was a well developed story with likeable main characters. I liked the way the main characters fell for each other and did everything for each other. I loved that they both shared the same passion for science. There were difficult moments of course but a good story overall.
