No Time to Explain
Barefoot William Beach #6
By Kate Angell
Releasing September 26th, 2017
Kensington Books

In No Time to Explain (Barefoot William Beach #6) by Kate Angell, Joe 'Zoo' Zooker is used to women flirting and monopolizing his time when he's not out on the diamond. However, the gorgeous woman he interacts with at a bridal event doesn't seem all that interested and instead blows him off until she finds herself in trouble. Still, it's an uphill battle to win the smart-mouthed Stevie over. Will Stevie realize Joe is a good guy despite his womanizing ways before it's too late or will they lose their chance at happy ever after? 

What a highly-entertaining, fast-paced, enchanting read Ms. Angell has delivered in this sixth book of her Barefoot William Beach series where the main characters were absolutely captivating; and the dialogue enthralling because of the heroine and her smart mouth and her ability to be able to resist one of Baseball's most irresistible players. The way this story started drew me into this story immediately, because it's palpable that the hero loves women and is looking for someone to share a good time with. However, it was from the moment that the hero and heroine met that had me amused, because Stevie has a smart mouth and acts like she's immune to the hero's charm, so he doesn't get the woman he wants.

As for the dialogue, it was absolutely riveting and had me totally hooked by the heroine's determination to be resist Joe, even though it's palpable she's not going to be able to hold out for long. Furthermore, I loved the main characters back stories, as Joe doesn't believe in happy ever after. He's more into one-night stands or spending limited time with a woman until he's ready to walk away. Yet, the heroine is hard to walk away from right from the beginning when Joe comes to Stevie's rescue. How long will it take Joe to win the heroine over? Will Stevie ever confess about her family situation that might send Joe packing, especially because of the competition he faces from a fellow player? However, what I liked most of all about the hero was his determination to win the heroine over, even though he's not interested in happy ever after.

While the heroine, she's hard-working, loyal, independent and I liked how much a challenge she provided for Joe with her smart mouth and her determination to resist the intense chemistry between them. I also liked how close she was with her family and that they would do anything for each other, which is proven by what she's doing for her aunt and the promise she made to her cousin. Yet, what I liked most of all was that Stevie decided to take a chance on the hero, because she's good for him and vice-versa.

Overall, Ms. Angell has penned an incredible read in this book where the secondary characters were just as entertaining as the main ones; the chemistry between this couple was strong; and the ending had me cheering for this couple's happy ever after, because everything worked out for the best when it came to good news for one of the secondary characters and Joe when it came to their baseball careers. However, it was how things turned out for the hero and heroine that I liked best about the end, because Joe does something very memorable for the heroine. Who doesn't love cupcakes? I would recommend No Time to Explain by Kate Angell, if you enjoy sports romance, the opposites attract trope, or books by authors Jill Shalvis, Tawna Fenske, Samantha Chase and Rachel Gibson.

Who says romance has gone to the dogs?

Richmond Rogues’ left-fielder Joe “Zoo” Zooker has his own ritual for the start of spring training—a weekend of pure pleasure, including as many pretty faces and curvaceous bodies as he can charm into his bed. After that, he’s all about baseball, especially with hungry minor leaguers eager for their own shot at the majors, just waiting for him to strike out. But when a beautiful woman with a smart mouth brushes off his flirting, he’s determined to go to bat as often as it takes to win a smile aimed only at him. 

Stevie may be new to the beach town of Barefoot William, but she’s seen plenty of charmers like hot and hunky Zoo before. Managing her aunt’s doggie daycare business, she’s up to her ears in rowdy puppies—and she doesn’t need a lifelong hound like Zoo breaking her heart. Still, there’s no denying the attraction between them, and as spring training heats up, lust suddenly begins to look a lot like love . . .
