Summary from Goodreads

Liza Sutherland isn’t looking for love. Not from a charity-auction date she didn’t even bid on and especially not with Nationals first baseman Cole Collins, the guy she obsessed over as an awkward teenager. She won’t get involved with a notorious player, no matter how attractive Cole is. 

Cole Collins is up for contract renegotiation, but after too many late-night parties, he’ll need some positive publicity before he can make the roster. His agent, Frank, pitches Liza as the perfect prop…only Cole didn’t account for Liza no longer being just a teenager with a crush. She’s gorgeous and smart and he’s instantly hooked. 

When Frank makes Liza a deal she can’t refuse—a bet she will fall in love with Cole or a cool half mil goes to charity—the game is on. But neither bet on the real feelings that surface. Could a fake fling turn into an official forever?

My Review

I love the combination of this two. Daughter of the owner of one of the baseball team and star of the opposing team. Such a star couple. Cole was Liza's puppy love, she was a fan even before Cole is in the center of the spotlight. And Liza was the only friend Cole has back then. The only person who knows him better than others. 

So when they met again, and Liza is now the hot lady and Cole is the superstar, it's a match made in heaven. Though started for personal gain and lies, I can't help but root for the two. They have the chemistry, that I can't help smiling when I imagine them together. However, it seems like everything is going well in their surroundings. No one's against it that it feels too good to be true. Though it compensates all the lies the couple has, it still lack some excitement. But I'll let it go, the cute couple compensates for everything.

Then when it came near the end, I forgot everything I'm talking about the lack of excitement. The drama is all over, but the love and sweetness just can't get away. The story is so good and easy to read that I'm surprised that I'm almost at the end. It's also enjoyable that I don't actually want it to end, but I'm looking forward to the ending. contradicting huh?
