Fire Season by K.D. Casey

As their season winds down, they’ll need to walk away… or go out there and give it everything they’ve got.

Charlie Braxton has it all: a wicked curveball, a beautiful wife, and the kind of money and attention that's attached to a professional baseball contract. Except his famous curveball comes with intense social anxiety, his wife is actually his soon-to-be ex-wife, and the money… Well, suffice it to say, he knows what it’s like to be treated like an ATM. But at least he’s better off than the new guy.

Relief pitcher Reid Giordano is struggling to maintain his sobriety—and his roster spot. The press, along with a heck of a lot of his new Oakland teammates, seem to think his best baseball days are behind him. Only Charlie Braxton gives him the benefit of the doubt—and a place to stay when Reid finds himself short on cash… and friends.

When their growing friendship turns into an unexpected attraction, and that ignites a romance, both Charlie and Reid must grapple with what it means to be more than teammates. And as their season winds down, they’ll need to walk away… or go out there and give it everything they’ve got.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is the second book in the series but can be read as a standalone. You could definitely go back and enjoy the first regardless.

I loved how this book played out. Two men at opposite ends of their success in baseball but drawn together thanks to the kindness (and loneliness) of Charlie. He recognises in Reid a man who could do with a helping hand and who would fill the huge gap in his life, now he’s separated from his wife.

Amusingly, none of the other players suspect that the guys are in fact falling for each other, but there is certainly a bit of jealousy brewing due to the friendship.

Also brewing are fires near Charlie’s old home, and he helps out his ex, and makes another surprising discovery. I had guessed a while back, but it’s fun watching it all play out.

This is a really good sports romance, with plenty of off and on the field content… and the added joy of a rescue pup! Enjoy.
