★ LORI'S REVIEW ★
This book was really good! The synopsis immediately grabbed my attention and I knew I just had to read it.
This story is packed full of suspense that will keep you turning the pages, keep you guessing what happens next, and more than likely, will keep you up reading past your bedtime. I found myself constantly thinking about this story when I wasn’t reading and couldn’t wait to dive back in.
I was immediately drawn to the characters, feeling an instant connection. Drew is a gorgeous, cocky professional baseball player who is not in the market for love. Not only is he a player on the field, he’s a whole different kind of player off the field. Breanne is a widow with three kids who finally decides to get back in the work force – she is definitely not looking for love. But, when these two meet on a plane while sitting next to each other, their chemistry is nothing less than perfect.
From the moment these two met I was completely hooked. The adventures they experienced together made for an exciting read that had me craving more. It ends in a cliffy (that I did not see coming!), and lucky for us – book 2 will be released very soon! Cannot wait to see how this plays out! I highly recommend this if you are looking for a thrilling suspense novel with some delicious romance thrown in. I look forward to reading more from Ms. Michaels. :)
★ RACHEL'S REVIEW ★
I picked up this book to review because I was in the mood for something suspenseful. After being in a bit of a mundane rut of what seemed like I'd been reading the same story over and over, Curveball was like a breath of fresh air.
I absolutely loved every single thing about this book. (Except maybe the cliffy - that hit me out of nowhere!). Still, it was done so well I got over it quickly. The story line was fresh, original and literally kept me turning the page.
Breanne is a strong female lead, and coupled the a sexy, cocky baseball player made their chemistry jump from each page. I can't remember a book where I wanted them to get together so badly.
And just when I thought I had it figured all out? BAM, Michaels throws in another Curveball.
This book did it all for me. It's definitely in my top 5 reads so far of 2015. If you are looking for an action packed, fantastic romance novel I highly suggest Curveball.

★ LORI'S REVIEW ★
This was a fabulous conclusion to Drew & Breanne’s story! When I finished Curveball, I could not wait to jump right into this book. I was eager for more action, I craved more suspense, and I most definitely needed more of Drew & Breanne’s romance. Teresa Michaels did not disappoint! It was packed with suspense & action and full of twists and turns. And let’s not forget the steamy scenes that will be sure to have you fanning yourself. Another page-turner that captured my attention from the beginning and didn’t let go until the end.
I absolutely adored Drew in book 1, but in Rundown, I can honestly say I am head-over-heels in love with him. What a great character – he’s passionate, protective, charming, SEXY, smart & funny, all wrapped up in a nice, hot little package. And Breanne is the perfect female heroine for him. You will not get a weak & whiny girl with her. She is sassy, beautiful, and she knows how to fight for what she wants. Love these characters!
While reading this, I felt like I was watching a movie play out in front of me. There were many intense scenes that had my heart beating faster, some sexy parts that had me gripping my kindle a bit tighter, and there were also humorous moments that made me laugh out loud – the perfect combination for an amazing read.
If you are looking for a fantastic, well-written romantic suspense, start with Curveball, and then dive right into this one! I cannot wait to read more from this author. Nicely done, Ms. Michaels!

CONFLICT OF INTEREST
Ambitious and insightful, Gabby DiVergilio only has one thing standing in the way of her climbing the corporate ladder: her new business partner, Lucas McCarthy. He's arrogant and dismissive, driving her mad with his sexy Irish accent in every possible way.
Recently promoted to the executive ranks, Lucas must prove that he’s the right man for the job. He never expected that the HR professional he’d be forced to work with on a daily basis would be gorgeous, challenging and smart as hell. He’s not the type to accept help from anyone, especially not a bubbly, policy-enforcer that he’d rather bend over his desk. Never one to lose focus, Lucas avoids Gabby at all costs until circumventing her becomes career suicide.
Fraternizing in the workplace is strictly prohibited and neither one of them are willing to break the rules. But with their undeniable chemistry about to ignite, Lucas and Gabby must decide which consequence is worse – combusting from sexual frustration or violating company policy.
