R.S. Grey is an auto-buy author for me, so anytime I get to review an early copy of her new release I jump at the chance! Three Strikes and You’re Mine has a bit of a different feel to it than some of Grey’s past books. The story builds a bit more slowly and each character has a richness to them that I really enjoyed. Grey’s writing gains personality and depth with every book she writes and that shines through in this book in a way that I can’t quite describe, but thoroughly enjoyed.
Three Strikes and You’re Mine begins by introducing us to Chloe, who is a top-rated pastry chef needing a new gig. Through a series of events, she ends up meeting Luke, a professional baseball player who is taking some time away from the game he loves. Due to *reasons,* these two end up longing for one another – and the intensity is *chef’s kiss.*
The wonderful part about this book is that the storyline as a whole is wonderful, the characters are fabulous, and the spicy parts are next level. I devoured this in two sittings. Also, can’t wait for book two, because this is a series!!

ABOUT THE BOOK
Dear Past Me,
Future You here, coming to offer a little advice: hang on for dear life. This summer is going to be a wild one. I know what you’re thinking: Life’s going so well! I don’t have a care in the world! Wrong. That culinary career you love so much? It’s about to go up in smoke, and your boyfriend? Yeah…he’s a goner too. If only love were as simple as, say, actually adding yourself to the lease agreement so you don’t suddenly find yourself loveless, jobless, and homeless!
Did your five-year plan include moving back in with your family and sharing a bed with your Nonna? No? Well, hate to break it to you…it’s exactly as traumatizing as it sounds.
Have you had enough? Too bad. Buckle up—it gets worse. Your new boss is a professional baseball player, and he’s hot, like really hot, but you’ll pretend not to notice because he’s a single dad and it feels wrong to ogle him in front of his innocent child. Unfortunately, he thinks you’re sexy as hell too. Unrequited love is one thing; mutual off-limits pining destined to explode in the worst of ways? What could go wrong…wrong…wrong… (That’s me fading out because you have to take it from here, kid. Good luck! Don’t screw this up for me.)
Your future (wiser) self
