DRIVE YOU WILD Review & Giveaway with Jennifer Bernard


Drive You Wild
Love Between the Bases #3

By: Jennifer Bernard

Releasing June 28, 2016


It’s game on for love in the third novel of USA Today bestselling author Jennifer Bernard’s sexy, baseball-themed series.

Kilby Catfish left-fielder Trevor Stark is a ballpark legend. With his good looks, hitting records, and played-for-the-fans arrogance, Trevor makes women lose their minds and men lose their cool. But every time the major league team comes calling, Trevor purposely keeps himself in the tiny Texas town. Why is heart-tuggingly top secret. Until the team owner’s daughter comes to Kilby . . . trying everything up her sexy sleeve to make Trevor talk.

Divorced and disillusioned at twenty-four, Paige Mattingly Austin Taylor is suddenly starting fresh as an intern at Catfish Stadium. She should want nothing to do with the sinfully hot ballplayer her dad warned her to stay away from. But when she discovers what Trevor is hiding from everyone, she realizes there’s much more to him than his face and multi-million-dollar arm. There’s a heart she seriously hopes to win.

There a few things that I love about this series from Bernard but the one that sticks out most that this book isn't about a mlb team but a minor league team which makes it unique.

If you read the previous books you met Trevor and know that he can be a real cocky sob, but after reading his complete story I totally fell in love with him. He's talented, smart and definitely swoon worthy. But he always shows a caring and loving side to not only his sister and Paige but to his teammates.

I liked Paige a lot! Even though she was going through just be divorced by cheating ex she still had that fire to want to change and get back out there. When she first meets Trevor she is attracted to him but as the time goes go she falls in love with the good man that he is that not many others actually get to see.

One thing I loved about this book was the humor. It was fun and I really did have so many favorite parts of this book. One of my favorites is when is Trevor is in his coaches office pants-less and Paige is there but he hasn't noticed her yet. It's a cute scene :-)

Bernard did an excellent job on describing the players on the field when they were playing their games. It felt real as if I was watching it on my tv.

Of course in all romance books we get a little drama and this one isn't any different. Both these characters have a past and both drama is equally distributed between them. It was nice not seeing it all pinned on just one main character.

I really enjoyed that the women from the previous books make more then one appearance. I thought it was great how they just tied right into the story.

There are so many teammates to go and I secretly hope they all end up getting there own book before they are called up to the majors. I also hope that Trevor's sister will end up with her own book as well if she ends up staying in Kirby.

I'm really looking forward to seeing where Bernard takes this series in future books.

“Are you afraid of the mighty Crush Taylor?” She took another step closer. “He’s not as bad as he seems, you know.”

“I’m not afraid of him.” He placed his hands on her shoulders to keep her from coming any closer. Her warmth carried into his skin, into his being, as if it was igniting him from within.

“And I’m not afraid of you.” She ducked underneath his hands in a quick move right out of the NBA. He took a step back and his calves hit the bench situated next to the lockers. She reached out in apology and suddenly they were right smack against each other, chest-to-chest.

Fire flashed down his spine, hot and urgent. He hauled her against him—oh, sweet Lord, she felt good. Soft and firm and shapely and alive and fresh and . . . then her mouth was under his, her lips parting, her breath warm, her flesh lush and sweet. It wasn’t a kiss so much as a head rush.


      Paige posted the first series of “Baseball’s Hottest Outfield” photos on the team’s Facebook page the next day. A few hours later a thousand people had clicked Like. Not only that, but the viewership of the page soared. It was shared all over the Internet, on Pinterest, on Twitter, on Instagram. It wasn’t just that the three men were criminally gorgeous. A big part of the appeal came from their racial mix and the blend of personalities. Trevor the stone-cold badass, Dwight the dynamic charmer, and Shizuko, the soulful rock star.

Paige knew it was all a crock, of course. Trevor wasn’t stone cold, Dwight wasn’t playful all the time, and Shizuko could outcrude most of the clubhouse, and that was saying something. But once those identities became set, people loved them. They were like cartoon characters instead of real people.

At the next game, the crowd roared when the outfielders took their positions on the field. Fans held up even more signs than they normally did. From the owner’s box, Paige scanned the crowd with her binoculars and read the signs out loud to Crush.

“ ‘Kilby Hearts Baseball’s Hottest Outfield.’ Thank you very much, we heart you too! ‘We make ’em hot in Kilby, Texas.’ That might be taking a little too much credit. None of them are from here.”
