~Review: Finding His Swing (Love's Protector Series, #2) by Cassidy K. O'Connor~

Jake Reynolds has everything he could want in life, fame, fortune and the greatest job in America as a professional baseball player. He didn't realize anything was missing, until the day he met Chelsea Simmons. 

Chelsea is Jake’s biggest fan and can’t believe her luck when she wins a contest to meet the players on the field before a home game. Meeting Jake was a dream come true, she never thought she had a chance at love with him. 

After finding his soul mate but ignoring his heart Jake goes into a hitting slump. Chelsea is what society calls a curvy woman, Jake fears she won’t be accepted into his world and would rather give up being with her than risk her happiness. Can he continue playing ball knowing his soul mate is within reach? 

Keara’s second mission as a member of the faery clan The Laochra Gra is vastly different from her first. She has her work cut out for her putting these two in situations that usually end in unexpected and hilarious antics. Can Keara help them see past society’s small mindedness and give into the love they feel for each other?

Overall Rating:  3 Rockin’ ★★★

Keara is on her second mission to help two people find their true love.  After her last mission when she allowed herself to become too involved with the man she was sent to help, Keara knows she must stay neutral.  She must help Jake Reynolds a professional baseball player finds his true mate before the Lianhan Shee, a faery mistress with the power to enslave men lures him away from his true love.  What Keara does not forsee, is the players that will be sent to distract her from her job.

Jake Reynolds has a problem, he has lost his swing and to a pro baseball player that is catastrophic! He doesn’t know what is causing his dilemma but if he can’t get his batting under control he may not be playing anymore. Everything seems to have started the day his biggest fan, Chelsea Simmons won the chance to meet the players at a game.  Jake knows that she is the one for him but he fights the longing in his heart because Chelsea is not the expected woman for a player. 

Keara has a tough job ahead to bring the two together.  Will they be able to move past preconceived ideas of what is expected?  Can they find their future happiness as a couple?  Or will peer pressure destroy their relationship?
