Dane Prescott spends his days staring at perfect holes, and knows how to use his stiff shaft to get there. He’s as hot as he is good at the sport he loves more than breathing.

Dane has one goal and one goal only, to be on the professional golf tour. It’s who he is and what he lives for. Women, although fun, aren't in his long-term plans.

Beverly Whitfield didn’t start off as the confident woman she is today. Teased mercilessly as a child and always feeling second-best, she set out to change her future and is finally putting herself first. Never in her wildest imagination did she think she’d fall for a man with stunning good looks and sex seeping from his pores. And, oh yeah, he plays golf.

To those who say golf is complicated and frustrating, Dane says, “No, that’s love.”

my thoughts

An exciting, emotional, and sexy standalone by ‘new to me’ author, Joanne Schwehm. Not to be cheeky, but this book GRIPPED me from the very beginning…holding me hostage until the beautiful ending. Dane and Beverly are a couple you will want to root for the whole way through. I laughed. I cried. I sighed and then I cried some more. I wasn’t expecting the amount of emotional pull from this book, but I wouldn’t change a damn thing. I loved it!

Joanne Schwehm is now on my radar! I so enjoyed her writing style and I ADORED her characters. As soon as I finished this bad boy, I immediately added book one to my TBR, because I can’t get enough of these Prescotts! A certified manwhore and a teacher? That sounds like a recipe for some SEXY TIMES! The banter was funny and sexy between and two, and I found myself snickering a lot of the time. The chemistry…I mean WOW! It was CRAZY GOOD! Just all around YUMMY!

I loved how we got to a know a little about all of the Prescott siblings. I feel like I know them now and I’m excited to read each of their individual stories. I’m intrigued. I’m flushed. I’m just incredibly giddy! Oh and side note…you in NO WAY have to enjoy the sport of golf to enjoy this story. Personally, I’m not a fan, but I still found Dane Prescott to be freaking gorgeous and sexy! And can we take a few hours to admire the cover of this book. I mean…WOW! It’s delicious, is it not?

In closing, I would like to say to Ms. Schwehm, you’ve earned yourself another fan today. I’m excited to jump right in to Drake’s story and I’m incredibly excited for the rest. If you are looking for a delicious and sexy sports romance with all the feels and twice the laughs, GRIPPED is the book for you. My FAVORITE part of the story was at about 98% into it…guess you’ll have to #OneClick to find out what it is! <insert evil laugh here>

“When I saw you tonight, I knew I needed to have you.”

“What do you mean, have me?” Bringing her other hand to my chest, she pushed me back. Hard.

Damn, she was going to make me say it. But I had a different idea.

Taking her face in my palms, I tilted her head a bit and brought my mouth as close to hers as I could without touching. Her breath smelled of the sweet bourbon she’d just enjoyed. The swell of her breasts brushed against me and her breathing quickened. Rather than go in for the kill, I dropped a gentle kiss on the curve of her neck. I could feel her pulse stutter beneath my lips as I lingered there for a moment.

After I stepped back, still holding her beautiful face in my hands, she blinked a few times before saying, “I should go.”

I released her and moved aside so she could open the door and slide into her car. As she settled into the seat, the slit in her dress fell to the side, exposing one long, toned leg. She went to close her door, which I prevented by putting my hand on it.

“Can I call you?”

Beverly shrugged, not meeting my eyes. “You have my number, so I guess that’s up to you.”

“It’s been a pleasure. I’ll talk to you soon.” I pushed her door shut, and standing alone in the dark parking lot, watched her drive away.

Pleasure? I hadn’t scratched the surface yet on how much pleasure I wanted to give this woman.
