Heartthrob

Heartthrob

He likes a challenge…Here’s the deal: I’m the best center fielder in the major leagues. I’m also the guy who cost his team the championship game and acted very unsportsmanlike. So, when the team hires a social media manager to repair the damage to my reputation, I don’t argue. But then I meet Chloe Conrad, and I suddenly understand what people mean when they say they have...

    I LOVED Heartthrob. I feel as though I should wax some amazing poetry about the story. But I don’t have the words. What I can say is Robin has made me laugh and cry. She literally turned me inside out and had me crying tears of sadness and joy. It’s been awhile since a book has touched my soul and this one did it. For purely personal reasons, it’s like she gave me a gift when I needed one the most.

    Finn Auprince is the Center Fielder for MLB’s Landsharks. Rich beyond his dreams, due to his family’s hotel empire, Finn is really just an average guy. Growing up for him was at times hard, but he had the support of his family. His first love is baseball, because it showed him that he could be good at something.

    Chloe Conrad is a social media manager. She’s the daughter of a famous umpire and spent her childhood traveling from stadium to stadium with her father. Chloe loves baseball and tends to quote baseball stats without even thinking about it. Chloe believes herself to be cursed in that her last few boyfriends have found “the one” while dating her.

    Finn and Chloe meet when she accidentally runs into him. Little do they know that the next day they will start to spend the rest of their lives together.

    It’s every MLB player’s dream to play in and win the World Series. Finn was halfway there. It was game seven and he had a chance to end the game. But unfortunately, he lost the ball and ended up fracturing his clavicle. Add to that, in an earlier game, he had a hissy fit when a call didn’t go his way. Now, the team wants to capitalize on the number of his social media followers and show him in a better light. The team hires him a social media manager; none other than Chloe. Also known as the daughter of the umpire he disrespected.

    As the two work together, their attraction grows. But Chloe has just instituted a no more men policy and she plans on sticking to it. Of course, Finn wears her down with his charming ways. With great main and secondary characters (hello, future book boyfriends Ethan and Drew Auprince), Heartthrob was playful, fun, and entertaining. It was also emotional, which I didn’t see coming. Chloe is loving, fun, sweet, and passionate. She and Finn are really good together. For his part, Finn is a hero who had my heart from page one. I’m in love and there’s nothing else to say.

    The first book in Robin Bielman's

    series gives us baseball player Finn Auprince and PR Guru Chloe Conrad’s story.

    This is a couple that are linked in more ways than one, initially what starts with a car accident, Finn then finds out Chloe has also been tasked by his team to improve his public persona and online following stats, this is before he finds out her father is also the last umpire he disrespected while having a bad day at the office, one that got even worse when he left the pitch with a broken collar bone, as well as a missed catch in outfield, costing the

    an important victory.

    The attraction between them is instant, but Chloe having been burned more than once by the men in her life is extremely wary, but caution soon scatters to the wind, and they agree to a no strings arrangement. Problem being one of them likes the strings and wants to keep adding more of them the more time they spend with each other.

    If you mix together a few well loved tropes, a wealth of likeable characters, and a well written, beautifully paced story-line

    ticks every box you are likely to have and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

    Fun and flirty with oodles of romance and chemistry,

    is without doubt Robin Bielman doing what she does best.

    My heart was literally doing a happy-dance whilst I sat reading as Chloe and Finn’s romance leapt from sweet to steamy, humorous to heartfelt. Success and wealth is in pro-baseball star Finn’s DNA and whilst he has the confidence and air of alpha-loveliness that comes with that, he’s grounded and wise, focussed on his career and enjoying bachelorhood. Until Chloe crashes into his life, sweet, sassy, fun and brought on-board to help handle his social media popularity.

    With real, relatable notes to their story, both were incredibly easy to love and with the added factors of Finn’s close relationship with his brothers, humour courtesy of his fabulous Gran, a smattering of angst and the discovery that goat yoga is a real and magnificent thing, this is a book which simply hits all the right spots.

    If a light, easy romantic read with engaging writing is your jam,

    is exactly that.

    Finn Auprince wants nothing more than to forget about how last season ended. But the baseball club wants to clean up his image and make him more accessible to fans so they hired social media manager Chloe Conrad to help Finn. She’s not only an umpire’s daughter who rattles off baseball stats like a pro (talk about sexy) but she knows her marketing.

    Finn Auprince wants nothing more than to forget about how last season ended. But the baseball club wants to clean up his image and make him more accessible to fans so they hired social media manager Chloe Conrad to help Finn. She’s not only an umpire’s daughter who rattles off baseball stats like a pro (talk about sexy) but she knows her marketing. When she’s near, all he want to do is run his fingers through her hair and kiss her senseless. The only hitch: she thinks she’s a curse to all men. He’s got to prove her wrong and show her she’s the best thing that’s ever happened to him.

    Chloe knows exactly what Finn is: sex on a stick. After being dumped, she’s sworn off men forever. She’s a curse. She’s the girl men date on the way to finding their soul mate. She’s determined to keep it professional with Finn. She don’t need a fling and that’s all it would be with him. But the more she’s around him, the more she unearths the man behind the smile. His heart lays open and she can’t help herself. Can she turn him from heartthrob to all hers or will the curse break her heart again?

    As a baseball fan, Heartthrob is a home run. It has all the nuances of the world of professional baseball balanced with a heart-stopping romance. Finn and Chloe are one of those couples you yearn for them to get together and then when they do, your heart melts. Robin Bielman ratchets up the sexual tension until the reader needs a cold shower but the payoff is sublime. The ending was so good, I gave a cheer. Romance at its very best.

    If you’re looking for a summer read or a contemporary romance with heart, pick up Heartthrob today. Perfect for any baseball fan. You’ll be cheering for Finn and Chloe!

    Finn Auprince is not your typical professional baseball player. His focus is strictly all baseball all the time. That is, until he gets hurt and meets Chloe Conrad. She’s the PR rep his team set him up with to increase his social media presence. To say Chloe knows baseball is an understatement, she knows baseball like the back of her hand. She spent her teenage years traveling the country with her dad while he umpired games. Chloe believes she is cursed. Every guy she has ever been with has found his happily ever after while dating her. The last time was her last straw and she’s done with men.

    But Chloe wasn’t prepared for Finn, and tries to keep their relationship professional. Finn was definitely not prepared for Chloe but he went all in on the chase. I loved their relationship, it started off slow and easy but they settled seamlessly into each other, almost without noticing. They were friends but it was also more, deeper. I loved their quick witty banter with each other. How Finn gets easily offended and how Chloe makes it seem like no big deal. I love the line “you’re my favorite person ever..” In all actuality, I’d be hard pressed to find something that I didn’t like.

    This was my first book by Robin Bielman but it won’t be the last. I throughly enjoyed these characters and their story. I cannot wait to read more books my this author.

    There is nothing I love more than a book that puts a giant, schmoopy smile on my face for almost the entire story. That very smile was set to perma-grin from the moment of Finn and Chloe’s meet-cute to the very end (with only slight wobbles along the way). I loved them so much, and

    Finn is not exactly what I expected from the “hottest player in the major leagues”, much less

    . He was much more likable than I anticipated – funny, humble, and utterly irresistible. My heart basically handed itself over to him immediately upon first introduction, and stood steadfastly by him as the story unfolded. The possibility exists that I loved him more than Chloe did, and that’s saying something because the chemistry between those two was on point and they set my pulse racing, heart fluttering, and – well, that smile. They made me smile so hard, so big, and so often – I was just a complete goner.

    The writing is engaging is smart, and the humor hit right at my sweet spots. I had so much fun reading this story. I loved the banter, the adorable playfulness between Finn and Chloe. I loved that some more serious issues were addressed in a respectful, realistic manner even as the tone of the book felt consistently light and easy. I loved the emotional depth, and the sizzle between them. I loved the secondary characters – and the fact that there are more of these books to come. I loved the whole package and honestly cannot wait for more! ~ Shelly, 4.5 Stars

    This book is humorous and the couple adorable. I expected Finn to be a cocky player but the man is humble, sweet and kind. Some of his actions are heartwarming and will touch you. Chloe is sassy, smart and confident.

    I have no idea about baseball since we don’t have it here so I was a bit lost with the terms but I overall enjoyed this book! This couple has chemistry from the start and together they work well.

    My only complaint was towards the end when Chloe accused Finn a little too fast for my liking. She chose to keep her distance than communicate with him but fortunately, everything was resolved quickly.

    If you want a light, easy story with a playful couple, this book is the one for you!

    Sports romance, for some reason as I don't like sports, it actually one of my favorite tropes. I enjoy, I think, the aspect of the game, of the job they do being so all encompassing that it is not only a job, but the main thing in their lives.

    So, Finn and Chloe have that not going for them from the beginning. He's a major league ball player, she's his social media person, in charge of making sure he looks good on the internet. And, his focus is on healing from his injury and making sure that he is able to play again. He sees Chloe as a distraction until the season begins.

    But, what happens when there is something more there? When the relationship means more to both of them when the relationship turns into something that is not just a short time? Well, this is when they both need to make decisions about the direction of the relationship and how much it matters to them each. And, at least for me, this is where the book was not as strong. I believed that they each love one another, and that there is an attraction there...but, did I believe the decisions they made to stay together? Yes, and no. It made sense from the basis of the relationship, but it felt like it was a little too easy for them (Finn especially) to go from romance as a sideline to his relationship and the focus of his story with a willingness to allow her into his life.

    I am not saying it didn't work...just that it worked a little too smoothly for me to be able to fully believe in it.

    That said, I enjoyed this title and I recommend it.

    I wrote this book so of course I love it. :) My sexy baseball player - who sets his sights on his no-chance-in-hell-am-I-dating-you social media manager - is one of my favorite heroes I've written. Not to mention there's some serious puppy love and baby goat yoga!
