In YOU CAN'T STEAL FIRST by Annette Blair, a famous baseball player gets a chance to reunite with his childhood sweetheart during a train ride to spring training.
In YOU CAN'T TOUCH THIS by Geri Buckley, a young woman decides to take back the season tickets she bought for her now ex-boyfriend. She finds out that there is plenty to learn when she meets a guy in the stands.
HOT TICKET pairs four sport hunks with very different and vivacious ladies. Even though they are short stories, they certainly didn't feel like it. I liked how the characters were engaging and how their problems were resolved. The stories didn't lag or seemed rushed at all. The women are independent but do need a bit of reassurance every once in a while. On the surface, the guys are macho but they have a softer, more private side that most don't see. I believe the simple things like taking care of a sick person or a heartfelt confession to the one you love made each couple winners off the field. This is a great anthology from beginning to end. Game, set, match for HOT TICKET!
