Happy "Book Hook" Day
May I 'hook' you on 
"Let Me Love You"?

"Let Me Love You" is set in Melbourne, in the wonderful country of Australia.    



I hope you get hooked by this Snippet 

Today's hook
A few minutes later, as Oliver walked through the labyrinth of the clubhouse, he pondered about heading over to Ty’s anyway. Katie, Ty’s girlfriend, always had leftover dinner, and a bit of company wouldn’t hurt. The instant pain in his shoulder when he moved the bag, however, reminded him to make that call for a massage appointment.
When he hung up, he lifted his gaze and not only found himself in front of the lift but also next to Tamara. All the questions ran through his head again. How she’d ignored his hand, yet more so how intrigued he’d been by that distant look in her
He was about to say something when the lift gave a soft ping and the doors opened. With a small sigh, he stepped aside and waited for Tamara to enter first.
“Ground floor?”
“Yes, please,” she replied in a soft whisper.
A thousand things went through his head, yet nothing that would start a conversation. He turned his head slightly towards her and as he watched her staring at the closing doors, he noticed a little flinch.
Or had he imagined it?
From where he stood, he was only able to see a small part of her face. She was pale, yet her skin was flawless. Her blonde hair was tied back in a ponytail, with a few stray strands tucked behind her ears. No earrings. He moved a bit forward. No rings on any of the fingers either. When she turned a bit, he again saw her deep blue eyes. They were so beautiful, and yet underlined with troubling dark circles. He imagined for a moment what those eyes were hiding.
“So what brings you to Melbourne?” he asked.
He was pretty sure he’d noticed another little flinch.

Oliver Dempsey, pitcher for a Melbourne baseball club, loves the women, and they love him… 
But he keeps them at an arm’s length, and when he meets Tamara, he’s unprepared for the attraction he feels for her. Told by his coach that she’s off limits, only draws him in more. 
Tamara Amis moved to Melbourne to find some distance between her past and herself… 
With the help of her uncle, the coach of a Melbourne baseball club, she quickly finds a job, and a place to live. Yet, one meeting with the handsome pitcher stirs unexpected emotions that threaten to overwhelm her. 
It’s Oliver’s injury that brings them together, but as they find out about each other’s pasts, how can they be ready to share a future?   

5 Stars 
This is the first book I read by author. I really enjoyed this book. I will have to read book 1 in this series. You can read this as a standalone

4 Stars
Having enjoyed the first book in this series, I was more than happy to read Let Me Love You – but each book stands alone and you don't have to have read one to understand the other. Nor do you have to know baseball inside-out to follow the story!

Oliver and Tamara appear to be opposites in the way they live life – he outgoing, she nervy and insular after a recent tragedy. And yet both choose to keep people at arm's length and neither are looking for romantic involvement. The attraction they feel for each other is initially unwanted but ultimately can't be ignored.

When Oliver is injured, he must reevaluate his career and his attitude to relationships, just as Tamara must decide the best way to forge forward rebuilding her life.

This is an enjoyable romance exploring the way two people cope with loss and tragedy in different ways, with likeable secondary characters adding variety and humor.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
