Trevor Shay has it all--a successful football and baseball career, and any woman he wants. But when he finds out his college mentor's daughter is in trouble, he drops everything to come to her aid. Haven Briscoe has finally landed a dream job as a sportscaster for a major network. But she hasn't been able to move past the recent death of her beloved father, and it's affecting her career. A plum assignment following the daily life of sports superstar Trevor Shay might be just the inspiration she needs... Trevor will do anything to spark life back into Haven, including letting her into every aspect of his world. The chemistry between them flames higher than one of Trevor's home runs and faster than his dashes to the end zone. But as they grow closer, Haven stumbles onto Trevor's closely guarded secret, one he's hidden his entire life. And despite his protests, now it's Haven's turn to put everything on hold to help Trevor. Will he let her in and trust her with a secret that could blow his professional and personal world apart?

Trevor Shay is living his dream as both a professional football and baseball player. When he discovers that his college tutor, Haven Briscoe, is struggling with her fatherÃ¢??s death and ready to give up her career as a sportscaster he intervenes by offering her an exclusive interview. Haven and Trevor become close and Trevor worries that Haven will discover his long guarded secret.
I love this story! Trevor and Haven seem to rediscover each other at the prefect time. They end up helping each other with difficult circumstances that have hampered their lives.
I enjoyed Haven. She truly loved her father and struggled with accepting his death. Having lost my father, I could relate to her circumstance.
I love Trevor. He is understandably cocky, having a bit of an ego, but he does it in a way that makes him likable and not a jerk. He is a good guy who looks out for his friends and team mates.
I appreciated that characters from previous books are included in this novel. It is fun seeing characters you fell in love with becoming friends with the new additions.
The plot was very realistic and well done. Straddling the Line is a heartwarming story that I truly enjoyed. My heart went out to both characters and what they endured and worked to overcome.
Jaci Burton is a gifted writer. I really relish the Play by Play series and recommend it to lovers of contemporary sports romances. Burton does a wonderful job describing the sport scenes as well as coming up with intriguing plots.
