Mason Adler is the arrogant, gorgeous, player. In every aspect – baseball, ladies, and life. He postponed his dream of playing in the majors to experience college with his friends. All his dreams are on the horizon waiting for him to grasp, until a catastrophe rocks his world.
Brecklynn Collier moves across the country, following her brother to experience all Wichita State has to offer. Her dreams include a lens, photos, and sharing beauty with the world. She’s on the right track . . . but Mason has her in the crosshairs.
Until Brecklynn he was a player.
Until Mason she was focused on the future.
One game. One night. One misunderstanding.
Three strikes in baseball is an out.
Is it the same for their life?
Mason Adler seems to take his life for granted. He also sees himself as a gift to women. For me, he was not a likable person. Brooklyn has made quite the impression. She’s also learning to spread her wings. At times she had me confused. She had something happen in her past that affects her present but then there are times where I felt that because of her actions how could that be true. But then I see signs of PTSD and then I understand her pain.
The male main character in this story, Mason, is in college and sports is his major. At times I felt that sports was just a way to get to the ladies. He loved the notoriety and the women that came along with it. It surprised me how quickly his demeanor changed once he Brecklynn, a freshman – probably because I didn’t feel any type of connection between them. As I read this story it became obvious that in order to truly know Mason you need to start this series from the beginning. I had trouble with all the ups and downs, which made it hard to follow.
This was a story where I felt more connection coming from the secondary characters. They also left me wanting to know more about their story. Brecklynn gives me an impression of a mother who smothers with good intention. But when I meet her I don’t get that impression. Just because I didn’t connect with this story doesn’t mean I’m ready to give up on this author or this series. Until I read Playing Fate and Kismet there’s always a chance where I will change my mind.
