I received a copy of Double Play by Ranee Clark from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
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?
This was a really good book. I had a hard time relating to Sophie in the beginning. She acted like she was so better than all of her friends that it made it hard to get past. As she helps plan her ex-boyfriend Anthony's wedding and gets to know his fiancé Ty she realizes that high price clothing isn't all that matters. Will Anthony's best friend David be able to help her see that being yourself is not a bad thing?
