"Saving Drew" (Lara Van Hulzen) ★★★★ BOOK REVIEW!

Recovering from a shoulder injury that could end his career as starting pitcher of the New York Empires, Drew MacIntire comes to Silver Bay for solitude and privacy from the media frenzy his surgery has created. After he dances with the beautiful baker, Baylee, at his sister’s wedding, his heart not only wants baseball back, but a future with her as well.
Baylee Nelson is settled into her simple, small town life in Silver Bay with her young son, Casey. When Drew saunters into her bakery intent on asking her out, she can’t help but be thrilled. He’s handsome, sexy, kind, and also takes interest in Casey. Baylee knows she needs to keep things casual. She and Drew live in separate worlds, and she needs to keep her focus on her business and son, but Drew didn’t get to the top by giving up easily.
Drew and Baylee are falling hard, but with spring training approaching, it seems like the third strike for their future… Can their love withstand the media glare and challenges of a long distance romance?

"Saving Drew" by Lara Van Hulzen is a sweet and endearing story that is filled with warmth and love.  I adored both main characters. Baylee is a single mom, running a bakery and enjoying her life.  She is upbeat, fun and someone that I would love to have as a friend.  Drew is a professional baseball player in town for a wedding and to heal from an injury.  Despite his fame and fortune, he isn't your stereotypical famous athlete.  He doesn't relish the limelight, he simply loves the game.  He is kind and gentle and a romantic at heart (even if he doesn't believe it).  His attitude and actions with Baylee's son are adorable and tender.  Watching these two get to know each other and fall in love was an enjoyable ride.  There are several secondary characters (that have their own stories, which I have yet to read but didn't take away from this tale) that offered insights to our lovely couple and provided love and support to both.  Simply put, this is a story of love - there's a touch of angst but nothing more than what every day life can throw at someone.  I was hoping for a bit more at the end but I suppose that's because I grew to really like Drew and Baylee and didn't want their story to stop.  (received copy from NetGalley for honest review)
