A brand new book in the USA Today Bestselling PHILADELPHIA PATRIOTS series of sexy sports romances!
Big, tough, sexy...and trouble.
As far as sports agent Kate Berlin is concerned, that describes Nick Rome perfectly. Landing the hard-charging, talented catcher as her new client is a huge coup, and Nick could catapult her small agency into the big leagues--or destroy her reputation if she screws up. Since Nick has a habit of butting heads with Patriots management, the chance for disaster is high.
Nick's had serious agent troubles, so he's willing to give smart and sexy Kate Berlin a try at negotiating his new and much-needed contract. The hardworking single mom is determined to manage Nick both on and off the field, clamping down on the attraction blazing between them. But nobody keeps Nick Rome under control--either on the field or in the bedroom.
Can Kate handle Nick as both her lover and her client, or will succumbing to passion destroy the professional life she's worked so hard to achieve?

SCORING POSITION is the perfect book to banish the winter doldrums! Nick Rome, catcher for the Philadephia Patriots, just fired his agent. He wants to renegociate his contract, but the management doesn’t want to give him the money he feels he deserves, mostly because of his hot temper. His best friend and teammate, Nate Carter, knows someone: Kate Berlin, who has a small agency, but represents women and no one from baseball. When they meet, Kate and Nick know they can make a great team, as long as they can keep their mutual attraction under control; Nick doesn’t mind getting involved, but Kate is reticent.
I am often a bit wary of sports romances, but it is definitely not a problem with SCORING POSITION; what a great book! I felt I was an insider attending contract negotiations, the sports environment sounds entirely genuine, and the baseball sequences are as vivid as watching them in the ballpark, or at least on a giant HDTV. The narrative flows easily; the prose is clean, uncluttered but elegant, the dialogues are spot-on: every character’s voice is their own, and the banter between the teammates is good for quite a few chuckles.
SCORING POSITION is an absolute joy to read! I loved each and every character, even the not so nice ones, because they are all equally well-rounded and unique. What surprised me most is that this is the sixth instalment in the series, and I didn’t feel I missed anything! I loved the friendship between Nate and Nick; Kate is a single mother, and her son Dylan really does behave as a six-year old. Kate is nearly overwhelmed by Nick’s easy charm, and so is the reader; he is not overly arrogant, and Kate really comes off as a real person: professional, but not too perfect.
V.K. Sykes’ knowledge of the game is extremely impressive, the writing is seamless, the characters believably complex, and the story is more exciting than most of the mysteries I have read recently; SCORING POSITION is a perfect game topped off by a grand slam by the home team in the ninth inning: fantastic!
