Pickup Games...Review

About the book:
When Mick Webber gets a new job hosting a college basketball show, he is less than thrilled to learn he will be co-hosting with Cara Jones, a pretty brunette trying to get over her failed engagement. From the start it is clear the two will not be playing nice, and work soon turns into a battlefield. But as the season progresses and the two are forced to work together more closely, they begin to see that first impressions can often be deceiving. In this riveting story about the game of love, you ll find yourself holding your breath to see what the scoreboard says when the clock runs out. 

5 years after he was wrongfully accused of murdering his girlfriend, former basketball star Mick Webber thinks he has finally achieved the dream of hosting his own sports show. His excitement is short-lived when he is, instead, asked to co-host a Utah-based college basketball show with a woman as his co-anchor. Cara Jones is beautiful, smart and knowledgeable about college sports. Cara has her own heartache and coming to Salt Lake is her chance to start over. She didn't expect to deal with a stubborn, womanizing co-anchor.

Predictably, there is conflict between them, as they struggle to overcome their own issues and get along with each other. A light, yet thought-provoking, easy LDS read. This one is perfect when you want to escape with something entertaining. I thoroughly enjoyed it.

While it's a sequel to Marcia's earlier novel, Reasonable Doubt, this one stands alone. I haven't read Reasonable Doubt, but I plan to as soon as I can get a copy!

Thanks to the author for sending me a copy to review. You can learn more about Marcia Mickelson here. You can purchase a copy of the book here, here, and here.

  1. Your blog is awesome! I spent more hours than I want to admit yesterday reading your reviews. I feel a kinship to your preferences. I took some notes for myself and for my book club on ones I think we might like. (then I went to fetchbook.info and ordered several...one for just a penny plus shipping. I just posted something about your blog on mine. Thanks for your commitment to values and good stories. I will be a frequent visitor here.
