Synopsis: Things are starting to heat up in Atlanta, or at least in Jane’s celibate life of two years. On the two year anniversary of her nasty split between her and her ex, Jane’s friends, Molly – class “A” filthy mouth – and Albert – flamboyant dresser extraordinaire – decide it’s high time Jane drops the conservative persona, let loose and start to have some fun once again. 

Brady Matthews, Atlanta Braves first baseman and well known through the media as Atlanta’s gigolo, thought he was just taking his new teammate, Michael Banks, out on the town. Little did he know Michael’s friend from college, Jane, was going to show up at their table and turn his world upside down. 

When Brady meets Jane, he is instantly attracted to Jane’s innocence and inner sex kitten but the last thing she wants is to be thrown into another relationship with such a publicly known man-whore especially after her heart was broken so devastatingly. Brady makes it his mission to win Jane over and make her see him as the man he actually is, not the way the media perceives him. But it is not that simple. Wedding plans, spring training, ex’s, old college friends, the paparazzi and gossip magazines seem to keep getting in the way of Brady’s goal to earn Jane’s heart. 

Caught Looking goes through the love lives of Jane, Brady and their group of friends fighting the hardships of cheating, trusting, losing love and trying to find it once again. In one of America’s hottest cities, the gang heats up the sheets while their lives entangle together causing heartache, suffering through loss and finding love….hopefully.

What I Thought:

I was expecting to get Jane and Brady's story, instead there were a multitude of stories.  This book is told from multiple points of view, and so you get to hear everyone's opinion and thoughts.  This book was as hot as I expected it to be and I enjoyed reading it.

I really liked Jane.  She's coming out of a bad breakup.  Her ex-George deserves to be strung up by his balls, but more about him later.  I liked how Jane slowly came out of her reserved nature and soon was trading barbs with the best of them.  I was a little surprised at how quickly Jane went from being shy with Brady to teasing him relentlessly.

Molly and Luke, Jane's best friend and her boyfriend were my two favorite people in the book after Jane and Brady.  There was this huge twist I didn't see coming involving them and it rocked me.  I was left mouth open and gaping at my computer screen and then I cried.  Well, bawled, but you get my drift.  Then there was Michael who I liked but wanted to shake as well.  He was gong through a lot, but he needed to find better ways to manage his anger and frustration.  His wife Kelly gives women a bad name.  

I was basically expecting lots of heat and raunch and I got it, but I was really surprised by all the other content in the story.  Now coming back to George, I was a little upset he wasn't prosecuted for what he did to Jane.  If you're curious, then you're just going to have to read the book.  I've had Meghan's other sports series on my wishlists and tbr lists for a very long time, but I'm so glad I was able to read this book and start this series.  Especially since it's set in my hometown Atlanta.  Go Braves!

About the Author
When I was in high school I occasionally read books but was consumed by other teenage things so I didn't take the time to appreciate a good book on a cloudy day, wrapped up in a blanket on the couch. It wasn't until I received a Kindle for Christmas one year that my world completely flipped upside down. When looking for books I came across the Contemporary Romance genre and was sold and I haven't turned back since. 

You can either find my head buried in my Kindle, listening to inspiring heart ripping music or typing away on the computer twisting and turning the lives of my characters while driving my readers crazy with anticipation.

​I currently reside in beautiful Colorado Springs where the sun is always shining and there is a trail waiting to be hiked on every corner. I share a lovely and warm home with the love of my life and my five, four-legged children.
