Product Description

Product Description

Before she leaves town, she’s going out with a bang…

Sam Taylor has lusted after ex-baseball-player Riley Scott for far too long. Now, her business bought out from under her, broke, and with nothing to lose, she refuses to leave town without getting the one thing she’s always wanted. Riley. In her bed.

Riley had the reputation as a player on and off the baseball field. He’s wanted Sam for years, but valued her friendship too much to let sex ruin it. Now, after a forced retirement, he’s looking for a purpose in his life. Sam’s bar, the Diamond, is just the thing to get his life back on track.

But before he can reveal that he’s the new owner, he finds himself the willing victim of her full-on seduction. As he succumbs to her feminine charms, he begins to think maybe there’s a way he can have it all—the Diamond, the woman, and the friend.

Until she finds out he’s the one responsible for taking away her most treasured possession…

4.0 out of 5 stars A HOT AND STEAMY READ 23 Oct 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sam Taylor has run the Diamond Bar for the past five years, she had sunk every bit of money she had into it, now she had been forced to sell unable to pay her debts and the bank had refused to extend her loan.
Sam had three things left to do before she left Chicago one of them was to seduce Riley Scott, hot and sexy ex-baseball star. Riley had first walked into the Diamond two years ago, that first night he left with a woman, Sam knew he was a player but over the past two years they had become friends. Determined to get her way she waits for Riley to walk in the bar.
Riley has always fancied Sam but had never done anything about it as they were such good friends. Although when he goes to the bar tonight and tells her what he has done he's not sure that they will remain friends for long.
Although character and story depth are difficult in a short story the author has done a good job here. The story is predictable but it's a nice read and the sex is hot. I really enjoyed it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Going For It 3 Oct 2009
By Kelly - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Sam Taylor was leaving in town in three days, and she fully intended to seduce retired White Sox player Riley Scott before she did. She owned a bar he frequented called the Diamond, but she never got any farther than flirting with him for the last two years, and she was tired of it. Sam was losing everything that had meant anything to her, and before she left the Chicago area, she was going to take one good memory with her to her new life in New York, and that was a night with Riley.

Riley had wanted the Diamond ever since being forced to retire from baseball, but was having pangs of conscience about how underhanded he had been to get it. He went to his friend who was also Sam's financial manager, and asked him not to extend her loan. He was in essence forcing the only friend he had ever had to give up what meant the most to her. When she saw him that evening, he was shocked when Sam suggested they hit the sheets before she left town. He had wanted her for years, and there was no way he could say no, but wondered what the fallout would be when she found out he was the reason for her being ruined.

This story had a lot of action and steamy lovin. Riley and Sam are both intense characters with a lot of baggage to work out individually, but between them also. How can you forgive a betrayal that hurts that deep?

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet story 24 April 2010
By M. Kelly - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sometimes I find it difficult to rate such short books perfect stars because the books are so short. I have a tough time getting involved with the characters because the development is just to quick.

I have to say that this book was short but it was sweet. If you are looking for a little romance story with a predictable ending that is going to take you away for about an hour than this is the perfect story.

When the two main characters come together for a long overdue sexcapade, you can feel how much they love each other and that they had for a long time. The actual writing by Elle Kennedy was quite good and sexy hot. You will enjoy reading Going For It. The only downside is just before you know it the book is done and I wished it was a longer story so I had a chance to get to know them better.

Format:Kindle Edition
Sam and Riley work around a betrayal that slices deep and realise that what they wanted was in front of them all along.

This is a quick read, but you won't be disappointed. There isn't much character development (as a result of length), but it makes up for it by being sweet and romantic.
