It is 1947, the year Jackie Robinson breaks Major League Baseball's color barrier by playing for the Brooklyn Dodgers and changes the world. This is the story of that season, as told through the eyes of a difficult, brooding, and wounded man named Joseph Burke. Burke, a veteran of World War II and a survivor of Guadalcanal, is hired by Brooklyn Dodgers President and General Manager Branch Rickey to guard Robinson. While Burke shadows Robinson, a man of tremendous strength and character suddenly thrust into the media spotlight, the bodyguard must also face some hard truths of his own, in a world where the wrong associations can prove fatal.

A brilliant novel about a very real man, Double Play is a triumph: ingeniously crafted, rich with period detail, and resounding with the themes familiar to Parker's readers: honor, duty, responsibility, and redemption.

    " I am a sucker for sporting romance and this one did not fail me! It's a shame there are only 2 books in this series. "

    " 3.75 stars really I couldn't quite give it 4 stars. I think that I like Animal Magnetism so much that this couldn't quite compare. I didn't dislike it at all. I actually really liked it. But I just didn't love it. I love the slow burn. The slow progression of the story and the slow progression of their relationship was more realistic. And it wasn't corny and fluffy. It had a believable plot. "

    " I love Jill Shalvis's single title contemporary novels. They're true to life but full of romance. And a nice surprise I opened the book to find it was a signed copy! "
