Long Relief - Abigail Barnette “She’s coming over,” Javier said, nudging Chris subtly with his elbow. “Put on your kiss-ass face.”Even better, Chris would put on his “I-know-you-saw-me-naked” face.The set-up:When she inherits her father’s pro baseball team, successful tech entrepreneur Maggie Harper finds herself pursued by aging relief pitcher Chris Thomas, the object of her intense teenage crush.The hits:Smart, funny and vulnerable heroine; tough but noble beta hero; good romance-building; great on-the-field and in-the-clubhouse scenes; and hot sex.The misses:Hmm, I think only the rather abrupt ending – but Maggie and Chris’s story continues as a secondary thread in the following books.The final score: B+
