"Payoff Pitch" [Philadelphia Patriots Series, Book 5] by V. K. Sykes (aka Vanessa Kelly & Randy Sykes)

Authors' Book Description : He’s a billionaire ballplayer...

Noah Cade, pitcher for the Philadelphia Patriots, has big problems. He’s recovering from a serious injury and he’s just been saddled with his sick aunt’s crazy dogs. Then there’s his dad, a wealthy oilman who wants Noah to retire from baseball and step into his shoes as CEO of the family corporation. All Noah wants is to pitch again and help his team win the World Series, but his family keeps dragging him in the opposite direction.

She’s a small town girl...

Teddy Quinn moved to the city to start a dog walking business for rich people, hoping the income will pay for law school and help her fight the oil corporations drilling the county where she grew up. When Noah Cade hires her as a full-time dog sitter for his high-energy pets, it seems like the answer to Teddy’s financial woes. But the boundaries get blurred when she starts falling for her boss, who uses all his formidable charm to lure her into his bed.

When Teddy discovers Noah’s father owns Baron Energy, she’s devastated. How can she work for—or love—a man whose family stands for everything she hates?

My Book Review : 4 out of 5 stars! Noah has had it tough lately trying hard to make a comeback from his TJ injury and with his father pushing him to get more involved in the family oil business, the last thing he wants to deal with are his aunts two rambunctious dogs. Yet, because of the dogs Teddy--a professional dog walker, a college student who wants to become a lawyer, and an environmental activist--comes into his life to change it for better. Will they be able to overcome their differences though? Especially when the differences feel insurmountable...

I found this plot to be very slow and steady the whole way through. It wasn’t a bad quality but, at times, it made me wish the pace picked up a bit. Nevertheless, I liked this novel. This novel’s characters are very engaging while the plot deals with some heavy-hitting topics that give the reader something to think about. In addition, I found that Edwina (Teddy) & Noah are opposites in terms of lifestyles but their personalities and spicy attraction are very similar, which makes them really think about each others concerns when something big happens to them throughout this novel.

Overall, I do recommend this novel. I mostly recommend it to those who are fans of the series but also to those who like contemporary sports romances, especially those that deal with a bit of activism too.

Book Teaser(s) :
A pair of two-tone Furrarri 550 kennels sat side by side on the cart. Teddy had just glimpsed two black faces peering expectantly through the bars of the crates when suddenly a huge woof erupted from one of them.
"Ah, that would be Toby," Noah said with a chuckle. "He's always been the mouthy one."
"Well, he's the male---need I say more?" Teddy said sardonically.
Noah rolled his eyes as Teddy looked up at him, unable to resist a little grin. ~ within Chapter 6
"At the rate I'm going, I figure I'll be able to afford journalism school by the approximate age of forty-five."
Teddy could tell the girl was wildly exaggerating her financial woes. But like her, Rachel had sworn not to spend her life digging her way out from under a mountain of student debt. Both of them had witnessed friends succumb to the deadly combination of ruinous debt and the inability to find good-paying work after graduation. Working every day while taking part-time studies was a frustrating necessity, but Teddy had a plan and she was determined to stick to it.
She gave Rachel a wry smile. "I'm aiming for law school by thirty-nine, or bust."
Rachel laughed as she held up her cup in a toast. Teddy reciprocated. ~ within Chapter 7
