Caught Looking

Things are starting to heat up in Atlanta, or at least in Jane’s celibate life of two years. On the two year anniversary of her nasty split between her and her ex, Jane’s friends, Molly – class “A” filthy mouth – and Albert – flamboyant dresser extraordinaire – decide it’s high time Jane drops the conservative persona, let loose and start to have some fun once again. Brady Matthews, Atlanta Braves first baseman and well known through the media as Atlanta’s gigolo, thought he was just taking his new teammate, Michael Banks, out on the town. Little did he know Michael’s friend from college, Jane, was going to show up at their table and turn his world upside down. When Brady meets Jane, he is instantly attracted to Jane’s innocence and inner sex kitten but the last thing she wants is to be thrown into another relationship with such a publicly known man-whore especially after her heart was broken so devastatingly. Brady makes it his mission to win Jane over and make her see him as the man he actually is, not the way the media perceives him. But it is not that simple. Wedding plans, spring training, ex’s, old college friends, the paparazzi and gossip magazines seem to keep getting in the way of Brady’s goal to earn Jane’s heart. Caught Looking goes through the love lives of Jane, Brady and their group of friends fighting the hardships of cheating, trusting, losing love and trying to find it once again. In one of America’s hottest cities, the gang heats up the sheets while their lives entangle together causing heartache, suffering through loss and finding love….hopefully.

ARC Was Given To Blog For An Honest Review

I’m not usually a person who reads books about athletes, it’s just not my thing, but something told me to give this book a shot, and I couldn’t be happier that I did. I absolutely loved this book. It was different from my norm…no dark hidden pasts, nothing twisted and crazy, just a feel-good book. At least most of the book is a feel good book. I will admit, there’s a cliffy, and I did ugly cry, but that’s literally at the end of the book. Everything else in the book is just happy and hilarious! There isn’t just one main couple; it’s a cast of characters that will make you laugh and feel like you have been welcomed into their circle. The main romance of this book is between Jane and Brady. Jane is an event planner who has had it bad in her previous relationship. She is just starting to come back to her old self when she meets Atlanta Braves first baseman, Brady Matthews. Brady with his sexy green eyes and his amazing heart, and of course that hot body! Brady is the man that every woman in Atlanta wants, and if they believe everything that they read in the tabloids, he’s a womanizer. The thing is, you shouldn’t believe everything that you read in the checkout lane at the grocery store. He’s had a bad relationship as well, but there’s something in Jane that makes him feel like he can’t stay away. He even enlists a new teammate and college best friend of Jane’s, Michael, to help him get his girl. Michael puts aside his own feelings for Jane, even though he resents it, because he knows that Brady is good for his “Janey Bear”. Even with all of the love and angst from exes, there are a few great bright spots. The relationships between Jane and her two best friends, Albert and Molly, are AMAZING. Albert is the token gay best friend, but he is fabulous and amazing. Everyone should seriously have a best friend like Albert; he’s funny, has great connections, and always gets the girls into the VIP sections of the hottest clubs in Atlanta. I seriously want an Albert! Because even though he’s awesome at hooking the girls up, he’s got a heart of gold. Seriously, he’s my favorite character. I absolutely loved this book and can’t wait for more!

Author Bio:

When I was in high school I occasionally read books but was consumed by other teenage things so I didn't take the time to appreciate a good book on a cloudy day, wrapped up in a blanket on the couch, besides The Notebook I made time to read the heartbreaking novel. It wasn't until I received a Kindle for Christmas one year that my world completely flipped upside down. When looking for books I came across the Contemporary Romance genre and was sold and I haven't turned back since. You can either find my head buried in my Kindle, listening to inspiring heart ripping music or typing away on the computer twisting and turning the lives of my characters while driving my readers crazy with anticipation. I am currently residing in beautiful Colorado Springs where the sun is always shining and there is a trail waiting to be hiked on every corner. I share a lovely and warm home with the love of my life and my five, four-legged children.
