Fielders Choice Cover LARGE EBOOK
 All-Star shortstop Matt Darrington has more than a problem. His wife died, and now he’s juggling a too-smart-for-her-britches six-year-old and the grueling pace of professional baseball. Worse, his daughter is mom shopping. When they explore a local ranch, she decides the beautiful, free-spirited tour guide is premium mom material. Matt thinks the sexy guide looks like Grade-A trouble.

Alana Tavonesi loves her cosmopolitan life in Paris. But when she inherits the renowned Tavonesi Olive Ranch, she has to return to California and face obligations she never wanted. Selling the place is her first instinct, but life at the ranch begins to crack her open, exposing the dreams hidden inside her heart.

On a lark she leads a ranch tour, where she meets Matt Darrington. His physical power and a captivating sensual appeal fire her in a way no man ever has, but he has a kid—and being a stepmom is a responsibility Alana will never be ready for. Still…she can’t keep her mind or her hands off him.

When Matt’s daughter goes missing from a kid’s camp at the ranch, Alana organizes the search effort, knowing from experience the areas a bright child would be drawn to explore. As she and Matt work together to search for the little girl, Alana discovers that father and daughter have won her heart. Yet it may be too late for love…

I have to say this is the first book I have read by this author and was a really good feel good read. I have a huge soft spot when there is a child playing matchmaker and adding a little feistiness that only a child can bring in the books. I felt this story flowed very well and was a quick read. It was really a sweet book and I really enjoyed it. I know where to go when I need a nice feel good read. Thanks Ms. Aares!! Love finding new authors! A copy was gifted in exchange for an honest review. 

Review by Tabitha


She left me what?” Alana Tavonesi couldn’t believe what her parents’ attorney was telling her. The news of her grandmother’s death the previous week had come as a shock, but this... this was way beyond shocking. Surely, she’d misheard him. She’d spent the night café-hopping along the boulevards of Paris, topped with dancing until dawn at Batofar on the Seine, so she wasn’t in prime listening condition. She glanced at the clock—three o’clock already. She held back a groan.
The ranch,” he repeated in that flat, all-business tone of his. “It’s yours. I’ll be faxing over the paperwork shortly from here in the New York office. You can overnight it back to me.”
Her mind reeled as she clutched the phone and sat up in bed. For the past several days she had both mourned and celebrated her grandmother's long and fascinating life. But she couldn’t believe Nana would leave her very dear ranch to her. Out of all the Tavonesi grandchildren, she was surely the worst to bequeath the California ranch to. A degree in art history wasn’t exactly useful for managing a world-class olive ranch, certainly not for handling the award-winning vineyard that Nana had painstakingly developed in the hills west of the main house.
You’re sure?”
He sighed. “I’m sure. The property includes...”
Alana listened as he listed the rest of her inheritance. Forty thousand olive trees. The sprawling mansion and ornate pavilions. And the greenhouses and the frantoio, and, oh yes, the art collection. At least that part she was interested in. She’d stopped him from listing the entire inventory, though. He’d probably have told her how many tractors or plows—or whatever one uses on an olive ranch—she now owned.
