Ethan Davenport is already Boston’s most eligible bachelor. In his second season with the Boston Renegades he has set his eyes on the girl behind the visitors’ dugout.
That girl is Daisy Robinson, a journalism student at the University of Boston and a die-hard Renegades fan.
But with new found love comes challenges and Ethan and Daisy have to deal with his crazy schedule, school finals and his presence on her campus for some much needed media training.
For Ethan nothing can come between him and Daisy, until a secret that she’s been keeping threatens to destroy them both.
Third Base was a pretty good book overall. I have found I rather enjoy books told only by the male. If this book had been told from Daisy’s POV I don’t think I would have liked it nearly as much. Ethan was also a likable guy. He isn’t an up and coming rookie and he isn’t a seasoned veteran either. It was nice to read about a pro athlete who isn’t just out of college and yet hasn’t made superstar status yet either. That provided Third Base with yet another unique perspective.
I figured out the plot twist by like chapter 2. Did it ruin the book for me? No but it did make it seem a bit slow. There is also an encounter with another woman after he has been out on a few dates with Daisy, so that might turn some people off. Third Base is a pretty straightforward contemporary romance. If you like your romance with a bit of heat (nothing excessive), sweet gestures, and people dealing with honest issues this is a good book to chose. I hope this continues into a series. I would like to know more about some of the other players!
