A Novel Affair [book blog]

My not-so-secret affair with romance novels

Blog Tour: EVERLY – Raine Thomas


ANA Review: 4 hearts

Determined to overcome a dark and tragic past, college student Everly Wallace is only months away from earning her degree in physical therapy. She’s consumed with school, caring for her ailing grandfather, and figuring out how to pay the next bill. The last thing she wants is a relationship, but it just might be the one thing she needs.

Major League pitcher Cole Parker hasn’t fought for anything in his life. He went from a privileged upbringing to a multimillion dollar All-Star career. But when his pitching shoulder starts to give him trouble at only twenty-four years old, he faces the possibility of his injury becoming public knowledge and costing him everything.

In a desperate bid to save his career, Cole decides to hire someone to treat his injury, someone who will keep things off the record and out of the media. He finds the perfect solution in Everly. As mysterious as she is beautiful, she provides an enticing distraction from his pain. Soon, physical therapy is the last thing on his mind.

When an act of betrayal brings the truths they both fear to light, Cole will have to fight for the first time in his life…not just for his career, but for Everly’s love.

I liked Everly. She’s smart, strong, sweet, caring, hardworking, and she didn’t change once she got involved with Cole. Mr. Baseball is sexy, but sweet, and not afraid to own up to his mistakes. I love that they’re both flawed, but they know it, and in that sense, their relationship seems real – in spite of the fact that he’s a professional athlete (not an obnoxious manwhore, thank goodness!) and she’s his super secret physical therapist.
This book is not about insta-love, and because of that, I was able to appreciate the journey – of the slowly developing feelings and the eventual falling in love. For Everly was a nice, fairly light read sans major drama, and cliffhangers – worth my 4 hearts!
