When his father was sent to prison, Caleb Hart was left to provide for his siblings, although he was only nineteen at the time. Caleb and his siblings have created a system that works for them, but they rely on the money that Caleb makes as a professional ballplayer to make ends meet. However, the pressure seems to be getting to him as his career falls into a slump. To solve his problems, he needs his career back to where it was, so he can make the salary he used to make. But, as his statistics take one hit after another, Caleb is sent down to the Kilby Catfish, a Triple A team. To make matters worse, his father has been released and with nowhere else to go, Caleb lets him stay with him. Although Caleb wants nothing else to do with his father, the ex-con is determined to be part of his son's life.

All of Sadie Merritt's life has been spent in Kilby, Texas, so she knows not to cross the Wade's, Kilby's preeminent family. Until last year, she dated one of the Wades, but when she tried to break up with him, he dragged her name through the mud so badly that she gained the nickname Slutty Sadie. Fortunately, the mayor, a friend of her mother, gave Sadie a break and hired her as her assistant. With the local church women protesting the Kilby Catfish and their raucous antics, it is up to Sadie to improve their image before they get run out of town.

Caleb is assigned to make the petition go away. So he works with Sadie to come up with ways to improve his team's image. Working together, they struggle with the sparks that fly between them. Can they find a way to obtain their goals and still have a future together, or will the ghosts of their pasts end their dreams?

USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Bernard hits another one out of the park with ALL OF ME, the first book in her promising new LOVE BETWEEN THE BASES series. I loved watching the relationship between Caleb and Sadie as it unfolds with explosive chemistry and mutual devotion while each one deals with the issues from the past. After reading Ms. Bernard's smoking hot Bachelor Firemen, I didn't see how she could possibly craft another series to rival her first, but the Kilby Catfish are definitely equal to the task. These irreverent, but loveable, baseball players burn up the pages and add plenty of sass, humor and heat to an already delightful story. I can't wait to read each of their stories as they meet the women they can't live without. Among the secondary characters are also the Wades, a family that everyone will love to hate.

After reading Ms. Bernard's previous series, I could not wait to get my hands on this series. This first installment is a powerful beginning. It was well worth the wait and more than met my expectations. Ms. Bernard gives readers a chance to see behind the scenes into the lives of the baseball players and the issues they face when off the field. Sports fans and lovers of contemporary romance will find particular pleasure in this story. If you have never read a Jennifer Bernard novel, you are in for a treat.
