"Cracked" by Tara Logan
My Book Summary : Dailey “Wiggle It” Wood has been playing minor league baseball for a while now, but he has a feeling that he'll be moving up to the major league soon. However, his dreams of being a major league player look to be ending after he gets into a fender bender with Allarie's (Al) younger sister.
Al is a chiropractor who has been talked into helping Dailey for free so her sister won't have to call her insurance company and so Dailey's injury can be hidden so it won't hurt his chances for the majors. Nevertheless, as they help one another while pretending to be a couple they're both surprised by the chemistry that they have and evolves with each other. Can they or do they want to make their fake relationship into something more? On the other hand, will their past and their future plans get in the way?
My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars, this is a very cute novella about finding the right person for you and be willing to do what it takes to keep them. I liked Al and Dailey; they played off each other well. Al's family and Dailey's friends/players really entertained throughout this novella.
However, even though this was a novella I think the end of it just wrapped up to quickly for my liking. I just wish for a little bit more. Yet I did like the "epilogue." =0)
I recommend this to anyone looking for a fast-paced contemporary romance novella.

He glanced back at the others who were still holding their sides. “What’s so funny?”For more information on this book and/or any other books by Tara, then please check out her website.
“The great Dailey Wood. Everyone knows you from baseball. So many women would kill to get in the seats you put the new girlfriend in. Right up front. Best seats in the house. But does she care about the game? You’ve been with some bubble headed blondes before, but this one takes it.”
Dailey stood there stunned. He thought the word would have been out that he took a classy and intelligent lady to the dinner last night. Strange that no one heard. How could anyone be under the impression she wasn’t the smarty pants that she was? “Bubble headed? She’s anything but that.”
“She yelled ‘touchdown’ so loud half the guys looked around to see if someone had been tackled.” At this he started laughing so hard he couldn’t stop. ~ within Chapter 5
