A sexy sports superstar discovers his body isn’t the only thing that needs healing in this newest Stardust, Texas novel from New York Times bestselling author Lori Wilde…

With major league good looks and talent, Dallas Gunslingers relief pitcher Axel Richmond was living the good life. Even if the roar of the crowd could never distract him from the loss of his young son. But now with an injured shoulder and his career on the line, Axel is stuck recuperating at a ranch in Stardust, Texas . . . striking out only with his gorgeous physical therapist.

Kasha Carlyle has one week to get Axel back in action or she can kiss her much-needed job with the Gunslingers goodbye. And any chance to seek custody of the orphaned half-sister she never knew existed. She quickly learns that Axel’s guarded heart also needs healing . . . requiring all kinds of sneaky plays and sexy moves in extra innings.

Laura's Review: 
This was a sweet romance that balanced life's challenges and its rewards well. 
It took me a little to get into it - as a medical professional, I found the whole aspect of Axel's recovery to be a little unrealistic. But, once that stopped being the focus of the book, it became a more satisfying read.  I loved that Ms. Wilde isn't afraid to touch on not-so-light themes that a lot of romances stay away from - it definitely added a dimension to the story I wasn't expecting. 

Love of the Game: 3.5/5 stars
