In Going All the Way (Knights of Passion #1) by Megan Ryder, Jason Friar doesn't have many options when it comes to returning to the game he loves, but he's desperate enough that he'll accept the offer from the Georgia Knights  baseball team. However, certain conditions come with him signing on the dotted line, which is having an image consultant to help with his tarnished reputation. 
After failing her latest client in keeping his image clean, Stacia Kendall has nothing to lose. Having a one-night stand might be a bad idea, but she doesn't care, it's not as if she'll see the guy again. However, when she's offered a new position helping to clean up a baseball player's image, she can't believe the player is the man she can't get off her mind.
Right from the beginning, I was captivated by this story, as Stacia has finally decided to stop being a good girl. She needs to let her hair after everything that has happened due to her failing to keep her client's image clean, which has left her father disappointed in her.
The dialogue really drew me into this story, and made me enjoy both the main and secondary characters. Stacia's best friend is protective and I enjoyed her interactions with Jason. Her threat if he hurts her friend amused me. The heroine is strong, brave, tenacious, and stubborn. I liked how she stood up to Jason when he was against anything she wanted him to do, and that she wasn't afraid to blackmail someone to help Jason out. Yet, what I liked most about her was how she finally stood up to her dad; a man that finally needed to realize that his daughter would no longer obey the things he expected of her. 
While Jason, he was a fantastic hero and I enjoyed the moments when he teased Stacia to get a reaction out of her. The way he attempted to get her to succumb to the intense chemistry that existed between them until he finally wore her down. He's confident, tenacious and I liked how well Stacia did her job. She improves his image so much so that he becomes a little less hot-tempered, and works hard to help his team-mates. He wants them to take the game more seriously, appreciate baseball the way he does, and encourage them to try harder, to win so they can make the championships. 
Overall, Ms. Ryder has written a fun, sexy, engaging read that has left me wanting to read more of this series in the future. The ending wrapped this story up nicely, and illustrated the strong chemistry that existed between this couple right from the start, which exploded onto the pages in hot sex scenes. What happens to Jason made me feel sorry for him, yet Stacia accepting a new job, and giving Jason another chance had me cheering. It was a way for her to finally be happy, and get out from under her father's you-should-do-what-you're-told ruling. I would recommend Going all the Way, if you enjoy sports romance, or strong heroines that finally stand up for what they believe in.

He’s looking for redemption.
After destroying his reputation, Jason Friar is desperate to make a comeback in Major League Baseball.

After being blamed for the collapse of a political candidate’s campaign, Stacia Kendall needs a new opportunity to prove herself to her father, a prominent and powerful Senator.

Stacia propped herself up on one arm and feasted on his flesh laid out for her. She ran her finger down the chest she had explored so thoroughly but had not seen. He lay still, muscles quivering under her light then deeper touch as she learned him, how and where he liked to be handled. A sense of power filled her, heightening her desire. She slid her hand lower, to the jeans sporting an impressive bulge. "That has to be uncomfortable."
His face contorted, muscles clenched. "Baby, you have no idea. Care to help me out of them?"
She hesitated. This was her last chance to turn back, to stop this madness. But he was a drug in her blood, singing and pulling her along to the dark side. And God help her, she wanted him. For once, she wanted to do what she wanted and be damned the consequences. She tugged at the button and opened it, releasing his erection. It sprang free, above the undone clasp.
She cocked an eyebrow at him. "Commando? Doesn't that hurt?"
He grinned and shrugged. "Underwear is too constricting."
"Thank God for that." She returned her attention to his cock, tentatively stroking him lightly. He groaned in response as it jerked. She laughed and renewed her attentions, running her fingers lightly up and down, then harder, rubbing the drop of pre-come at the tip over the wide, dark head.
After a few seconds, Jason grabbed her hand and slid out from under her, shucking his jeans in a smooth, practiced motion. He returned to the bed, pinning her, kissing her with a stronger urgency, more insistent. Her passion rose to a fever pitch.

Ever since Megan Ryder discovered Jude Deveraux and Judith McNaught while sneaking around the “forbidden” romance section of the library one day after school, she has been voraciously devouring romance novels of all types. Now a romance author in her own right, Megan pens sexy contemporary novels all about family and hot lovin’ with the boy next door. She lives in Connecticut, spending her days as a technical writer and her spare time divided between her addiction to knitting and reading.
