    He needs someone like her . . . 
     
    Luke Garibaldi is a member of the Outlaws' dugout of bad boys and the league's premier catcher. On the diamond, he plays to win, but when it comes to his private life, what the league doesn't know won't hurt, right? He spends his off hours breaking the rules: riding his motorcycle and putting his legendary arms too close to the asphalt, and playing the field. After all, with his body and his skills, he can have any woman he wants. Except Lara.  
     
    She needs to stay far away from guys like him . . . 
     
    Sports therapist Lara Andretti doesn't have time to play around with baseball players. Especially baseball players as hot as Luke Garibaldi. (Okay, maybe she has a little time to play around with a guy as hot as Luke Garibaldi.) But Lara's not looking for anything serious, especially with Luke's playboy reputation and cocky attitude. Besides her heart's still hurting from the last man who crushed it, and she's ready to leave town and make a fresh start.  
     
    But when an accident brings their lives together, and their attraction turns into something more, it becomes clear that the road to happily ever after is never easy.  Can they find their way back to each other and win the game of love?
