The world of baseball and romance is once again entertainingly connected in the latest Philadelphia Patriots story. Stakes are high as a multimillion dollar contract is being negotiated, and there definitely should not be any emotional involvement during the discussions. But the sexual attraction between a catcher for the Patriots and his new female agent cannot be denied forever. V.K. Sykes has this couple reacting with such genuineness that they just have to be real. SCORING POSITION puts the reader right in the heart of each compelling moment.
There have been many highlights for Nick Rome being on the Philadelphia Patriots baseball team, and his talent as their catcher has made him an important member. While he thoroughly enjoys his time actually playing the game, all the business dealings off the field are certainly not a fun part. Sadly, he is yet again without an agent because he often disagrees with their methods, but must find one quickly as his current contract will be up at the end of the season and negotiating on his own is not going well. When another player suggests Nick talk with a sports agent who has few clients, he wonders if the woman can get what he requires.
Though Kate Berlin has never worked with a baseball player before, she plans to get Nick the best offer possible when he hires her. Since he would be her most famous client, she knows pulling off a successful deal would prove she is able to help any athlete. Kate wants to satisfy the goal Nick demands, but she thinks his reputation as a hothead may hurt his chances. As the two work together, the spark of awareness between them grows with every new interaction.
Total enjoyment is how I felt while reading SCORING POSITION. The characters are very true-to-life, especially Nick and Kate, and what happens in their lives is also conceivable. Two strangers working together for business reasons often has them learning details about each other, and what is discovered can sometimes lead to interest for personal reasons. Nick may be confrontational when he feels wronged, but it just shows how passionate he is about things. Though rich, he still cares about others and I found his humble ways to be endearing. Kate is a very loving mother to her young son, and she is also a dedicated agent who is concerned about her clients. Her integrity had me respecting her quite often. Nick and Kate are a charming pair, and I found them to be particularly honorable.
I always felt as though scenes could take place as described, because lifelike events occur in the bedroom plus in any circumstances related to baseball. Kate and Nick certainly have no trouble expressing their desire for the other, as any sexual encounters are very pleasurable for them. V.K. Sykes truly hits a homerun when depicting any baseball plays or contract negotiations, as I could always understand exactly what is happening. Plenty of past characters make an appearance to my delight, and I hope the Philadelphia Patriots series continues for a long time, thus giving more players their own story. SCORING POSITION has romantic challenges and lots of heartfelt emotions.
