He’s finally managed a shaky hold of that elusive self-control.Until he meets them . . .Without warning, his coach and mentor’s brilliantly gifted granddaughter Clair and her equally amazing mother Addison Lara blow into AJ’s life. The harder he falls for Addison, the closer and more attached he becomes to Clair.

As more of the troubling reality comes to light, his zero tolerance for secrets and dishonesty put his temper—and his love for Addison—to the ultimate test.Self-control has never felt so impossible.

I literally read this book in one sitting. I could not put it down. Even when I would get up to get a snack or a drink, I was carrying my Kindle around the house with me while I read. I absolutely LOVED this story and fell in love with Elizabeth Reyes’ writing. Even though this is #5 in a series and a spin-off series at that, I didn’t feel like I was jumping in the middle of a story that I knew nothing about. This book can absolutely be read as a standalone.
AJ is a professional baseball player who has a reputation of having an explosive temper on the baseball diamond and even has the nickname, Rage. He also has the reputation being a bit of a manwhore. He actually is one of the biggest teddy bears around! He is gentle and sweet. He’s also very alpha, protective,and possessive when need be. I really love how he fell in love with Clair, Addison’s daughter before he even laid eyes on Addison.
Addison is the daughter of AJ’s mentor and coach. She is a single parent to Clair and had her when she was young. She grew up in the world of professional baseball and has sworn off dating baseball players. But when she meets AJ, all of that changes. Even though he is a bit of an asshole when they first cross paths, they have a strong pull and attraction to each other. AJ take his time getting to know Addison and decides that he wants more from her. He doesn’t want just a one night stand from her. one of the things that I love most about AJ, is how honest he is with his feelings for both Addison and Clair. He knows that they are a package deal and wouldn’t take them any other way.
AJ also has a tendency to be an extremely jealous prick when it comes to Addison. He wasn’t kidding when he said that she was his. From the start he has crazy, intense feelings where Addison is concerned. I love that Addison stands up to him, and doesn’t take any of his BS when gets pissy about stupid things.
AJ and Addison both learn so much about themselves and how to trust each other in this relationship. I don’t want to say anything more about the plot of the book, because it sure did surprise the hell out of me and I think the reader should get that shock and surprise themselves. Over all this book was addicting, super sexy, and fun. I can’t wait to read more from Elizabeth Reyes!
