Published: September 21, 2015 
Dr. Turner Brooks may be the professional brother, but he's also the adrenaline junkie. When he meets Annabelle, a girl scared to death of veering from the path shes paved for herself, all he wants to do is push her out of that comfort zone. 

Annabelle has already lost too much. She wants to stay focused on her new nursing job and away from unnecessary risks. Turner Brooks is exactly that an unnecessary risk. Shes heard the rumors about him flying around the hospital, describing him as a womanizer or sex god. Yeah, she doesnt need that. 

Still, Turner tries to teach her that life is full of risks worth taking. As they grow closer and she begins to let go, the unexpected happens. 

Will they be able to recover from that surprising fastball or could this be the final strike out? 

**This book can be read as a stand alone**

ARC received for an honest review

Firstly - can I say #ArmPorn on the cover??
This is the second in the  Core Four series, and can be read as a stand alone.  In fact, it felt like a stand alone as it had been so long since I read the first one (Bender) and I had mostly forgotten it's story.

I loved the first book, so I was really looking forward to Slider.  And while I liked it, I just didn't love it.

Dr Turner Brooks was enamoured with Annabelle from their first meeting.  Annabelle had the insta-lust thing going on with him.

I did like that she didn't immediately fall at Turner's feet or into his bed,  but made him work for it.

I loved the dates that Turner put together for them - showed how much he really was interested in Annabelle.

But Annabelle - she just faded into the background for me.  I had to reread the blurb to even remember her name!  I am not sure what it was about her, but I just didn't find her memorable at all. 

Slider was a sweet, fastpaced (maybe a little too fast paced at times?) story that was a good way to fill in an afternoon - but it just didn't stick with me.  

Although I will be reading the next two, as I think Wrigley's story is going to be fun.
