Welcome to the Spring Training Series
by Best-Selling Author Becca Jameson.
Spring Training follows the lives of several major league baseball players as they deal with the fame and reality of life and love.
When it comes to games, he has mastered every rule, on and off the field.
After sneaking off to have the hottest sex of her life with Dominic Cordes, the insanely sexy pitcher for Miami’s major league baseball team, Lily Phillips can’t imagine ever facing the man again. She acted completely out of character. But there’s no way to avoid seeing him three months later at the wedding of their mutual friends.
Dominic hasn’t forgotten a single moment with the tiny blonde who submitted to him so thoroughly that night. He should have called. Now he will have to face her wrath.
The steam between them hasn’t abated, but starting a relationship proves nearly impossible between Lily’s inexperience as a submissive, their hectic schedules, and an ex-boyfriend who does everything in his power to interfere.
Is it worth it? When they’re together, the world stops. But reality keeps threatening to tear them apart.
Lily was nervous about seeing Dominic again. He never called and neither did she, figuring it was better left as a one night thing. It was Zia and Brett’s wedding and the rehearsal dinner would the first time she would see him.
Unfortunately or fortunately however you choose to look at it, the attraction is still there. Instant and hot, it fuels a fire only Dominic with his controlling ways could quench.
However, Lily is afraid, not only of her reactions but also her ex-boyfriend. Luke seems to have taken up following her and taking pictures of her and Dominic. The worst were the texts and the threat to make them public if she continues to see him. This is part of the scene where he is trying to convince her to fess up.
Trying to catch her breath, she headed for the kitchen and grabbed a bottle of water.
Downing half of it, she plopped down on the couch and then groaned when her purse buzzed again.
Snaking her hand out to pull the cell from the outer pocket, she lifted it nearly unwillingly to her face.
Luke: I see you followed my directions. Now make that the last time you ever see Dominic Cordes.
She lowered the phone to her lap, closed her eyes, and took another drink.
What the hell was she going to do? Living her life permanently manipulated by Luke Vandergriff wasn’t the answer. But so far, she didn’t have a better one, and trying to solve this problem on Zia’s wedding day had been out of the question.
There were more texts. She simply didn’t have the energy to read them yet.
When the phone rang, she flinched. She lifted it up, saw that it was Dominic, and decided it would be easier to take the call than send it to voice mail. He was a persistent man. He wouldn’t give up. A part of her was glad.
“Hey.” She spoke softly.
“You make it home okay?” His voice was calm. Concerned.
“You want to talk about it?”
“My drive home?” she joked.
He laughed. “Well, we can discuss that if you want too. But I thought maybe if I wasn’t standing in your personal space, it might be easier to open up to me.”
“You can’t let this go, can you?”
“How do you know I have a problem, anyway? You don’t know me at all. Maybe I’m just a bitch and I changed my mind about you. Maybe I decided I don’t like the way you dominate me.”
“No. That’s not it…” he said, as if they were attempting to solve a mystery together.
She giggled, in spite of herself. The smallest shred of relaxation filtered through her body. She was alone in her apartment. Luke couldn’t see her. He had no idea she was on the phone with Dominic. She was safe. For now.
“Lily, I know we haven’t spent much time together, but I like you. And I’m pretty good at reading people. You like me too. You’re curious. You want to explore the possibilities. It’s reasonable that you would be a little scared. But you’re intrigued. I’m going to go out on a confident, cocky limb here and say that whatever has you spooked has nothing to do with me.
“You have a personal problem. It started with a disturbing text. Someone is sick or dying or lost or something. Though I haven’t figured out why you can’t tell me about it. I’m not an ass. I can listen. Maybe I can help. But give me a chance. Don’t shut me out.”

With plenty of persistence and a lot of patience Dominic finally gets the story out of her. Finally convincing her to take legal action.
Even with the restraining order, Luke continues his stalking of Lily with threatening texts and letters. Wearing on both of them as the season starts for Dominic. The time apart also gives Lily a chance to investigate this submissive side of her and visit the Zodiac Club to observe.
Once again Becca has taken us on a journey of finding the submissive within. I truly love her Dominants. They have the patience and strength to teach and are rewarded with the best gift of all… submission.
All of that and a surprising twist.
