Playing the Rookie by Rachelle Ayala

playing the rookie

This is the description that accompanies the book on Amazon and I think it’s pretty fitting: Jessica Song is tired of being a good girl, staying in a relationship well past closing time. Fresh from a breakup, she takes a walk on the wild side as a sports events intern.  Baseball rookie Jay Pak Ahn has been burned one too many times by good girls, especially his cheating ex-fiancée. When he meets wild Jessica, he throws away all caution to enjoy her to the fullest. Jessica and Jay agree to a week of enchanting, starry-eyed dates and wild, unrestrained sex to get their exes out of their systems.  Their pasts collide, exposing the secrets in Jessica’s heart and threatening Jay’s position on the team. Jessica must leave her disappointment behind while Jay has to decide whether Jessica comes before baseball. What will they sacrifice to turn their fling into true love?


Jessica is working at a baseball camp for the first week of spring training. She had the task of signing in all players who had last names starting with A-C. She has one person who hasn’t checked in yet and he’s late. But as she’s standing there talking with her boss and friend, in walks the last player, Jay Pak Ahn.

Jay breaks all his rules and starts flirting with Jessica right away. He’s a Korean player and plays her acting like he doesn’t understand or speak English well. She later finds out he knows what is being said and can speak perfect English. Jessica ends up going and taking a shower and by the time it’s all said and done, she ends up in his lap, naked. But Preston or Todd had told him that she was underage and promised to a Japanese prince. So he leaves.

Later that night, she goes out with Preston and Todd to a bar. A mysterious person sends her a drink and requests her presence at the Pitcher’s Mound. Todd escorts her over there and she learns that it’s Jay. He eventually explains what had happened earlier that day and things look up for them.

This is actually a nice story.

    Oh it’s a novella. Adult romance right? Is it steamy?
