A ballplayer’s girlfriend hides his daughter from him because she fears he’s like his abusive father.
Marcia Powers wants nothing to do with ballplayer Brock Carter, especially after she told him to go away and pursue his dreams. She has more than she can handle with an elderly father, a business to run, and a four-year-old daughter posing as her baby sister.
Brock Carter’s back in town to rekindle his romance with Marcia, and this time, he’s not letting her run him out of town. Marcia is unable to resist Brock, but determined to keep her secret.
Brock’s already lost his heart to Marcia once. Will he lose every dream, including baseball, when he discovers the real reason Marcia sent him away?
It is quite hard to read a book that touches on abuse. Whether it is physical or psychological… abuse is abuse and some of us just don’t quite know how to handle it… This book touches on real life situations and in turn makes you think and feel. Marcia was in love with Brock and still might be…and Brock has never stopped loving Marcia with all his heart. But can that love be strong enough to fix and work through some or all the abuse that haunts them?
Playing without rules is one of those tug at your heart kind of book. The way it is written makes you feel the emotions that the Characters in the book are going through.
I love books that touch on real life situations and this book does just that. Marcia Powers Loves Brock but certain things about him don’t sit well with her. Does she overcome those feelings.. Read this book and find out.
I just want to say how much I loved Brock in this book and how badly I just wanted to give him a hug.
