BLOG TOUR w/ GIVEAWAY: Chance for Home by Traci Hunter Abramson


Beautiful pre-med student Kari Evans believes she's found the man of her dreams—right up until the moment she discovers he's a two-timing cheat. Desperately gathering the pieces of her broken heart, she realizest hat what she needs most is space to reconsider her future. A summer in Washington, DC, with her professional baseball player brother, Ben, sounds like just the change of scene she's after. But if complicated romantic entanglements are what she's trying to escape, she's out of luck.

Ryan Strobel has had it with spotlight-seeking women. As third baseman for the Washington Nationals, he's dealt with more than his fair share of opportunistic admirers—but his ex-fiancee, Brandi, may be the worst. When the woman refuses to take no for an answer, Ryan's teammate Ben offers a crazy solution: Ben's sister will pose as Ryan's new girlfriend. Though an unlikely pair, Ryan and Kari find themselves getting surprisingly comfortable with the charade. Soon, the line between fact and fiction is blurred, and the very real feelings that develop between the couple are undeniable. But when faced with the interference of conniving exes, family objections, and the reality of their very different lives, are Ryan and Kari destined to strike out in the game of love?


Abramson has written an interesting contemporary romance in Chance for Home.  I found it enjoyable to read about Kari and Ryan's romance, especially considering the way it begins with Kari pretending to be Ryan's girlfriend to hold off his former fiance's efforts to get him back.  It was also interesting to see how their relationship developed naturally with ups and downs, especially toward the end as they get more serious and start to realize that their career and personal goals may not match up very well.  And the glimpse into what life as a professional athlete  is like was interesting to me as well.
