It’s game on for love in the third novel of USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Bernard’s sexy, baseball-themed series.
Kilby Catfish left-fielder Trevor Stark is a ballpark legend. With his good looks, hitting records, and played-for-the-fans arrogance, Trevor makes women lose their minds and men lose their cool. But every time the major league team comes calling, Trevor purposely keeps himself in the tiny Texas town. Why is heart-tuggingly top secret. Until the team owner’s daughter comes to Kilby . . . trying everything up her sexy sleeve to make Trevor talk.
Divorced and disillusioned at twenty-four, Paige Mattingly Austin Taylor is suddenly starting fresh as an intern at Catfish Stadium. She should want nothing to do with the sinfully hot ballplayer her dad warned her to stay away from. But when she discovers what Trevor is hiding from everyone, she realizes there’s much more to him than his face and multi-million-dollar arm. There’s a heart she seriously hopes to win.

Trevor Stark is a baseball superstar for the Kilby Catfish, a very big fish in a small pond. He could have made it to the majors several times, but he always seems bent on sabotaging every chance he gets to make it to San Diego. It’s what he needs to do to protect his younger sister Nina, even though baseball is his life, he will do anything to protect Nina. However, when the owner’s daughter, Paige Tyler, comes home and interns for the team, Trevor’s precious anonymity is threatened, as is his heart. Trevor avoids any kind of relationship, but Paige makes it very difficult for him to stay away. Paige knows she must not give in to her attraction to Trevor, but she senses there is much more to him, and Trevor needs to re-evaluate his whole way of thinking about his life and what is most important.
DRIVE YOU WILD is an epic romance, with captivating characters, magnificent descriptions of baseball games, and a good dose of mystery and suspense, which Jennifer Bernard weaves into an amazing book. The build-up to the romance is masterful, the writing incandescent, seamless and flowing, and the dialogues ring so true you can hear the characters’ voices. I couldn’t wait to know what Trevor’s secret was, and his sacrifice is heartbreaking. DRIVE YOU WILD is riveting from the first page to the last; I couldn’t read it quickly enough and yet I did not want to miss one single little detail. DRIVE YOU WILD is tender and sexy, intense and light, fun and suspenseful. There is the excitement of playoff games, the wonder of falling in love, and the camaraderie and hopes of a minor professional sports team. DRIVE YOU WILD is a resounding success!
