Add to Goodreads


A sexy sports superstar discovers his body isn’t the only thing that needs healing in this newest Stardust, Texas novel fromNew York Times bestselling author Lori Wilde.

With major league good looks and talent, Dallas Gunslingers relief pitcher Axel Richmond was living the good life. Even if the roar of the crowd could never distract him from the loss of his young son. But now with an injured shoulder and his career on the line, Axel is stuck recuperating at a ranch in Stardust, Texas . . . striking out only with his gorgeous physical therapist.

Kasha Carlyle has one week to get Axel back in action or she can kiss her much-needed job with the Gunslingers goodbye. And any chance to seek custody of the orphaned half-sister she never knew existed. She quickly learns that Axel’s guarded heart also needs healing . . . requiring all kinds of sneaky plays and sexy moves in extra innings.

Praise for Lori Wilde’s Stardust, Texas Series and Love Of The Game

“Wilde brings readers to Stardust, Texas, where baseball and romance are the name of the game . . . Wilde has another winner.”—RT Book Reviews

Review:                               5 Stars

Lori Wilde does it again, I have not read a book by Lori Wilde that I have not loved & Lori has done it once again with Love of the Game.  Axel & Kasha are so opposite from each other they just belong together, they balance each other out.  Axel is the go getter. push himself to the limits will not stop until he gets what he wants & Kasha is just the calm, collective control sensible one, but life experience has made them the way they are. They each had their secrets & together they were able to heal from past traumas, Axel what he truly couldn't live without & Kascha being able to realize true passion & love was worth bringing down the wall around her heart. You could just feel the chemistry between Axel & Kasha from the first time they locked eyes.  I loved how supportive Kascha's family was when they found out they kept a secret from them, they were accepted & was there for her.  I loved how Lori brought a little magic to the story with the hope chest & Kasha indifference to it.  I can't wait to go back to the other books & read about the hope chest & what magic it brought to Rowdy & Breeanne, Jodi & Jake.  The was not one thing I didn't love about Love of the Game it had a small town atomsphere, family, romance, secrets, a little magic, laughs, a few tears & hunky baseball player, all in one read. If you are looking for weekend read I recommend Love of the Game. 

I received a free copy for my honest review!

Happy Reading!!!
