Book Review | Heartthrob by USA Today Bestseller @RobinBielman #romance #baseball #beachreads #bookr

Title: Heartthrob

Author: Robin Bielman

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Book Blurb:

He likes a challenge… Here’s the deal: I’m the best center fielder in the major leagues. I’m also the guy who cost his team the championship game and acted very unsportsmanlike. So, when the team hires a social media manager to repair the damage to my reputation, I don’t argue. But then I meet Chloe Conrad, and I suddenly understand what people mean when they say they have an instant connection to someone. Which means I’m in serious trouble. Chloe’s a smart, sexy distraction I can’t afford, but one date can’t hurt, right? Only she turns me down. And just like that, it’s game on. She’s sworn off love… Finn Auprince is the hottest player in the major leagues. Look up “It Factor” in the dictionary and there’s his handsome face. He’s also my biggest client and I don’t care how easy it is to talk to him or how fun it is to manage his social media accounts, I will not give in to his charms. Then one drunken night, I tell him about my curse: all my previous boyfriends have found their soul mates while dating me. One more heartbreak, and I’ll never recover. But Finn doesn’t believe in curses—he believes in me. Professionally and personally. He sets out to prove the universe isn’t against me, and that his one true love isn’t waiting around the next corner. The problem is…can we play the game of love and both come out on top?

My Review:

Finn Auprince wants nothing more than to forget about how last season ended. But the baseball club wants to clean up his image and make him more accessible to fans so they hired social media manager Chloe Conrad to help Finn. She’s not only an umpire’s daughter who rattles off baseball stats like a pro (talk about sexy) but she knows her marketing. When she’s near, all he want to do is run his fingers through her hair and kiss her senseless. The only hitch: she thinks she’s a curse to all men. He’s got to prove her wrong and show her she’s the best thing that’s ever happened to him.

Chloe knows exactly what Finn is: sex on a stick. After being dumped, she’s sworn off men forever. She’s a curse. She’s the girl men date on the way to finding their soul mate. She’s determined to keep it professional with Finn. She don’t need a fling and that’s all it would be with him. But the more she’s around him, the more she unearths the man behind the smile. His heart lays open and she can’t help herself. Can she turn him from heartthrob to all hers or will the curse break her heart again?

As a baseball fan, Heartthrob is a home run. It has all the nuances of the world of professional baseball balanced with a heart-stopping romance. Finn and Chloe are one of those couples you yearn for them to get together and then when they do, your heart melts. Robin Bielman ratchets up the sexual tension until the reader needs a cold shower but the payoff is sublime. The ending was so good, I gave a cheer. Romance at its very best.

If you’re looking for a summer read or a contemporary romance with heart, pick up Heartthrob today. Perfect for any baseball fan. You’ll be cheering for Finn and Chloe!
