Sophie Pope is devastated when she hears the news: her former boyfriend, college football star Anthony “Rocket” Rogers, is engaged to be married. Determined to win him back before he says “I do,” Sophie hatches a foolproof plan to stop the wedding. But when Rocket’s best man, aspiring baseball player David Savage, thwarts her plot, she realizes the game is up. For David, though, it’s just beginning . . .
David knows that Sophie is just another pretty face, and he’s more than happy to save his best friend from her shallow advances. She’s not his type at all, so he’s baffled by his response to an awkward encounter with Donovan, another of Sophie’s former flames. Despite himself, David feels driven by an inexplicable need to protect her. Pretending to be Sophie’s new fiancé leads to unexpected sparks between the pair, and soon they’re searching for excuses to spend time together. But when a curveball threatens to send them in opposite directions, will Sophie and David step up to the plate for the possibility of true love?
I really liked the idea of this book. I have read a lot of falling for the person you are supposed to stop from doing something and this book did a very good job with this. This book flowed very nicely and had some great lessons in it. There was one part in the end when things just got chaotic and the characters did not act like themselves. But overall this was a brilliant book.
David is a good guy. He sees Sophie’s potential and is honest with her about his thoughts. Sophie starts out a little prideful but as she sees that she is wrong about some things she changes her actions to help others.
“Double Play” is an LDS book and takes place in BYU but it is not cheesy. It is a good Christian romance. Click here to purchaseBuy on Amazon.com!
I received a free copy through Nettgalley in return for an honest review.
