The Devil in Denim (New York Saints #1) by Melanie Scott

This is one of those sports meets romance novels. Alex and his two best friends, Lucas and Mal love baseball, until tragedy struck back in college and they had to give up on playing the sport. So when their beloved New York Saints [not sure if that's a real team, not very attuned with sports here] are up for sale, they team up to buy them.

Maggie is the only daughter of the Saints owner, she grew up with the team, her dream is to one day be CEO of the team just like her dad. She has spent year getting degrees in business and sports management, all working toward her goal. So when her dad sells the team and doesn't even tell her [I know right, what a prick], Maggie is crushed.

Alex needs Maggie on board with the sale because if the League doesn't approve the sale and the players are not happy, things can go bad, real bad. Well eventually all those late nights working together, lead to some real chemistry.

The only thing I did not like was the ending, it felt to rushed, would it have killed the author to throw an "I love you" in there. Since this is only book 1 in the series [book 2 will be Lucas' love story] I'm sure we'll see more of Alex and Maggie.
