Review: Calling It by Jen Doyle

****4 Stars**** 

I am always hesitant when reading something from a debut author but I have to say this was an easy read. It's a sweet love story that will suit any contemporary reader. It flows well and has some witty banter in all the right places. The only slight complaint I had with the book was Dories resistance to Nate sometimes felt a little in repeat mode.
Nate and Dorie meet after Nates sister rents out his apartment without him knowing. So when Nate returns home after an accident to recover from the media storm, he finds a half naked woman in his apartment. Dorie initially doesnt have her glasses on so doesn't realise who he is but once she does put them on she realises her teenage baseball player crush is right in front of her eyes. It takes a couple of days for them to hook up but when they do Dorie knows it won't be forever as Nate at some point needs to go back to training. Will Dorie be able to protect her heart and keep her six brothers at bay? Read to find out.

"Sexy and sweet and packing some serious heat. CALLING IT is a debut home run." ~ Marina Adair #1 national bestselling author of Summer in Napa

Baseball player Nathan Hawkins needs to get away from Chicago. After a near career-ending car accident and with paparazzi surrounding his penthouse, Nate can only think of one place to go: home. But when he finds his old apartment occupied by a half-naked woman wielding a baseball bat, he's not sure what to think...except that maybe his luck has finally changed for the better.

Librarian Dorie Donelli never thought she'd get to meet her fantasy man in person--much less while she's wearing her bathrobe. To her surprise, her nearly naked run-in with Nate leads to more unclothed encounters. But Dorie is sure their fling is only temporary. As long as she remembers he'll be gone once his life gets back on track, she won't get hurt. In the meantime, she throws herself into enjoying their three weeks together before he has to report for spring training and go back to his old life.

For Nate, being with Dorie is the only time in months that he finds himself smiling. Laughing. And he has no intention of letting that go. He might even be falling in love...if only Dorie will let him say the words. What they have isn't just a dream, but the start of a dream come true.
