"Back on Track" By: Donna Cummings Review

Back on Track
By: Donna Cummings

Synopsis from Goodreads
Allie Whittaker is in a dating slump, too busy getting her fledgling marketing company off the ground to have a personal life. All that could change, though, if she can get baseball superstar Matt Kearns on the cover of a charity calendar. Except Matt won't even talk to her.
Matt is in a slump, worried his career might be over. A Napa Valley wine tour isn't enough to take his mind off his troubles--until sexy, funny Allie plops into the adjacent seat and tells him three things about herself. One of them, she says, is a lie.
Matt can't resist playing along, and soon the afternoon getaway becomes an interlude with lies, truths, and desire flowing as fast as the wine. Then Allie lets slip one truth too many...and they both realize they're playing for keeps.
My Thoughts
     First off, how awesome is the cover of Back on Track? Yeah I’m a half naked guy standing in front of a train, but I’m still cool. It just makes me smile and the story behind the cover? Absolutely fantastic!
    Allie Whittaker is out for a night on the town...well an evening on the train as it were. Trying to meet new people and maybe find a hot guy, she sees a guy sitting near the back wearing a baseball hat and who seems kind of grumpy. When she approaches Mr. hat she realizes he is really a fairly famous baseball player.
    Matt Kearns is a world famous baseball player just trying to go unnoticed for the evening. He is surprised when Allie comes up to him and claims to know the real “Matt Kearns.” They both know its just an act but he is intrigued at how brazen and outgoing Allie is. She isn’t impressed by his money or his status, which isn’t something he sees too much.
    An adorable story of two people finding one another on a train, Donna does a wonderful job of giving life to these realistic characters. Cute, funny as all get out, and fully fleshed out even if it is only a novella, I enjoyed Matt and Abby’s love affair. Will they stay together forever after their brief love affair? Who knows but it was a fun journey to get there.
