Review: Stealing Home by Nicole Williams

*****5 Stars*****

Luke Archer is a sexy, sweet and compassionate baseball player for San Diego shock. Luke has 3 sisters so knows all to well how women think but when Allie joins the team as the new athletic coach he is surprised to find she is immune to any mans charm.
Allie has lived and breathed baseball so when she lands her dream job she won't risk her heart or job for anything, well that is until Luke turns on the charm. Will Allie risk everything for Luke or would she rather keep her job.
This is a really sweet and heartfelt love story. This is the perfect book for everyone that loves a good sports romance. Nicole has a knack of pulling her readers into the story and ensuring they are well and truly entertained. The characters are well developed and matured especially when it comes down to the nitty gritty parts that will leave you needing to grab something to fan yourself down. The banter between them is also entertaining to say the least as both characters are witty as well as seriously charming. There are some heartfelt moments in the book too in regards to past events that will tug at your heart strings and have you loving Luke Archer for an eternity. I can't wait to see what Nicole Williams has for us next!

Being the only woman working for a professional baseball team isn’t easy. As the San Diego Shock’s newest athletic trainer, Allie knows all about long hours, endless travel, and warding off players’ advances. Given she’s already the subject of a handful of rumors about how “lucky” she was to have earned such a coveted position, she can’t so much as flutter an eyelash a player’s way if she wants to be taken seriously.

But number eleven is doing more than fluttering eyelashes Allie’s way. Far more. Luke Archer is at the top of his game and doesn’t let the fear of striking out keep him from swinging. This is a motto he applies both on and off the field, but Allie appears immune, seeming to view Luke as nothing more than caution tape on legs.

He’s a player, and in Allie’s experience, they’re all the same. She won’t risk her job or her heart to another one, no matter how different this one claims to be. But as Allie gets to know him, she discovers the number eleven the public thinks they know is very different from the real Luke Archer. He seems too good to be true.

And maybe he is.

Allie will have to confront the stories attached to a player of Luke Archer’s stature and decide who she’ll put her faith in—The man she’s falling for? Or the rumors?
