Tami Hoag started her writing career writing romances and this is one of those early stories. I can certainly understand why she changed to mysteries this book plodded along slowly.
Seven years ago, Jace Cooper and Becca Bradshaw defined hot couple. However, Jace had a chance at one of the major league baseball teams and he left Becca to follow his dream. Now hes back with a serious knee injury that could sideline him forever and he wants his former physical therapist to work her magic again.
Becca is not of a mind to walk down that path; once was enough. Jace promises that he has changed but Becca has a long memory and clearly remembers Jaces trail of broken promises.
I just felt there weren't enough subplots to keep the story interesting. The story was predictable and slow moving.
