He tells her they are no longer engaged He wants her to return home She won t go She gets a job as a waitress to stay nearbyREVIEWER S OPINIONThere is nothing different or special about the Law Cat relationship They meet They do some things together they have sex there is only one They have sex There is only one and it was one of my pet peeves She overhears a partial conversation She jumps to the wrong conclusion and takes action that was stupid She is very intelligent and competent This action did not fit her character Later when he discovered she was Wonder Woman I felt let down I was hoping for something entertaining Each character has a dog which provides something else to write aboutThe book has a second romance story Brody and Mary Again nothing special It didn t do anything for me There was no relationship development I didn t see a reason for him changing his mind and wanting to marry herOn balance this book kept my interest but I was let down I was hoping for This is probably the final book in the Richmond Rogue series There is an epilogue giving lots of information about all the players from the previous books and their current babiesDATAStory length 289 pages Swearing language strong

out on the field and hearing if they won or lost and how they re doing in the standings on the field and hearing if they won or lost and how they re doing in the standings thought Law and Catherine s romance was very sweet *EVEN IF IT DID LACK SOME DETAIL OR JUST *if it did lack some detail or just time The supporting romance storyline with Brody and Mary on that later took up too much time and took away from Law and Catherine s story I wanted to see of them together on page but what we do get is a nice very angst free romance I also enjoyed the small addition of both their dogs Law has a boxer who s described as being so excited he bounces It just struck me funny every time he came on page bouncing picturing what that must look like It s a small detail but one that I found fun and charming Mary and Brody have the secondary romance in the book and it did absolutely nothing for me Brody comes off as an immature guy a player both on and off the field who s all about the hype and wanting nothing to do with his small town background Whereas Mary is the ultimate small town girl She comes off as na ve and she waited for Brody for 7 ears to come back and marry her Seven Years Their story and romance held zero of my attention and I would have rather had their page time given to Cat and Law s story While the story didn t blow me away it is still a fun read and nice ending to the Richmond Rogues series which I am sad to see conclude There s a series epilogue at the very end that gives us a peek at where each Richmond Rogue is at in their life both professionally and personally All the stories for all the Richmond Rogues are wrapped up in perfect happily ever after bows and even though it does come off as way too perfect I still smiled as I was reading what each guy ended up doing how many kids each couple had and who ended up having the only girl of the bunch This reads well as a stand alone and fans of the Richmond Rogue s will enjoy this final book in the series Cute and fun read A must for fans of baseballReviewed for Affaire de Coeur in the May issue A good end to the series Nice to see and catch up with the Rogues again I felt there was a ton of great lead up between Cat and Law but then it was like WHAM marriage A bit fast and uick at the endAnd I was shocked at how Brody and Mary s story happend so uickly alsoI like the epilogue and overall really enjoyed the seriesJust felt this one was a bit rushed at the end Cover Title 355 the cover doesn t link in for the book to me at all Favorite Character CatI haven t read any other book in this series but i still managed to get into this book I think if i had read the others then i might of liked it 2 stars Nothing special or different I didn t smile But I was interested enough to keep readingSTORY BRIEFLaw plays second base for the Richmond Rogues pro baseball team He has plenty of money from a trust fund plus his ball playing He likes collecting original issue comic books He doesn t want intimacy from women just sex He s thinking about buying a night club where customers dress in costumes He goes there dressed as Captain America and has some passionate kissing and touching with Wonder Woman She runs off without giving her real name He can t get her out of his mindCat researches investment opportunities for wealthy clients She was recently hired by Zen who handles investments for Law She is assigned to work with Law She recognizes him as Captain America from the night before She does not tell him that she was Wonder Woman She s embarrassed and wants to keep their interaction strictly businessSeveral ears ago Brody gave an engagement ring to Mary She stayed in her small town working in a bowling alley He left and forgot about her He s on the Rogues team and enjoys lots of women Mary is tired of waiting and travels to Richmond to be with Brody.

REVIEW Sweet Spot Richmond Rogues #5
Not sure I should be interested in a romance novel that the author isn t interested in There was tons of description none of it about people though The oversharing reminded me of Nora Roberts too all those things that Nora thinks are so cool that just make her seem like an old fuddy duddy And Angell is not RobertsI ve loved many of the books in this series but this one was just kind of boring and trite
Just Not A Well Writtennot a well written and no compelling characters This was a great end to the series The book stayed with the formula of the previous books with a starring romance and a secondary one I really liked both our hero Law and heroine Cat I liked the progression of the Rogues from players to married to wanting to be family men I thought this was handled with great humour and fun I have to admit I wasn t wild about the secondary romance because I thought Brody was a bit of a jerk and I m not really sure what I thought of M Loved this book Cat and Law have met before at a costume party she as Wonder Women and he was Captain America A moment of passion lead s Law to search for his Wonder Women Cat would rather forget the moment as she was embarrassed by her behavior that night The next day they officially met at her work she is going to help him with this investments She realizes that it was Law who she shared her moment of passion with but she keeps it a secret even after Law mentions that he s trying to find Wonder Women As they go along he opens up to her than he has to any other person besides his grandfather *Who Raised Him He Finds *raised him He finds drawn to Cat but also wants to find Wonder Women still Cat is big on family as she has a lot of them and they get together for anything to celebrate Law isn t used to that as it was just him and his grandfather after his parents died Loved how their dogs got along I can just picture it a big boxer and a little dog hanging out Sad to see the series end though I liked how the author closed out the series with whats going on with the other characters from previous books in the epilogue Review posted Happily Ever After ReadsBlog rating 355The very first chapter brings a cute meeting for the hero and heroine Law and Catherine They re both dressed up in costumes at a hot night club Haunt where every night is like Halloween Club goers dress up in their best costume and leave their inhibitions at the door Catherine is there to see firsthand how the club is doing as a financial advisor she s checking the club out for a client as a possible investment opportunity She goes as Wonder Woman and meets her match in Captain America They share a steamy dance that has Catherine acting very unlike her usual polished professional self After a close encounter that leaves her literally breathless with Captain America she runs out leaving her version of Cinderella s slipper behind Wonder Woman s Lasso of Truth Captain America aka Law finds it and vows to find his woman It really was a fun meeting for these two characters as their next meet up happens in the professional world Catherine ends up working for Law as Haunt and a few other potential business opportunities are on his plate and now Catherine s as she advises him Catherine realizes first that he was her Captain America but Law is clueless that he s spending time with Wonder Woman a woman that he can t get out of his head Their story goes back and forth between them meeting on a professional level and getting closer personally to the detailed baseball scenes involving Law and his Richmond Rogues that Kate Angell always does so well I appreciate the detail she puts into her stories with regards to the baseball team The books in this series were never just about baseball players we get details about how their season s going and actual game details ScoreJames Law Lawless is the star second baseman for the Richmond Rogues the wildest group of free swingers ever to barnstorm their way through the big leagues So when he hooks up with a seductive stranger at a costume party it feels like he just hit the winning run of the World Series Extra InningsCatherine Cat May was the hot number in that skimpy Wonder Woman costume.
