BLOG TOUR w/ GIVEAWAY: Double Play by Ranee S. Clark


Sophie Pope is devastated when she hears the news: her former boyfriend, college football star Anthony “Rocket” Rogers, is engaged to be married. Determined to win him back before he says “I do,” Sophie hatches a foolproof plan to stop the wedding. But when Rocket’s best man, aspiring baseball player David Savage, thwarts her plot, she realizes the game is up. For David, though, it’s just beginning . . .

David knows that Sophie is just another pretty face, and he’s more than happy to save his best friend from her shallow advances. She’s not his type at all, so he’s baffled by his response to an awkward encounter with Donovan, another of Sophie’s former flames. Despite himself, David feels driven by an inexplicable need to protect her. Pretending to be Sophie’s new fiancé leads to unexpected sparks between the pair, and soon they’re searching for excuses to spend time together. But when a curveball threatens to send them in opposite directions, will Sophie and David step up to the plate for the possibility of true love?


Clark has written another cute, clean romance with fun characters and an interesting plot.  I'll admit I wasn't sure the fashion and sports angles would come together very well, but they ended up working pretty well.  It was fun to read about Anthony and Ty again (Playing for Keeps) and David was a favorite character from the first book as well so I enjoyed reading more about him.  Sophie I wasn't thrilled with at the beginning as she plots to try to break up Anthony and Ty, but as she and David get more interested in each other I liked her better.  I think what I enjoyed the most about this book though was how real the characters seemed.  Each character had his/her own strengths and weaknesses and it showed in the relationships.  Both Sophie and David have their own flaws that complicate the relationship.  It was also great to see how Sophie and David helped each other improve in terms of who they were and their actions and beliefs.  Sophie learns that how she dresses has a huge impact on how she feels and David learns that dating a girl to change her isn't the best way to go.  A sweet clean read for those who enjoy realistic stories with a dash of sports and fashion.
