Sweet, second-chance sports romance
Bowled Over





Online stores:

Sports writer Gina Elliot fiercely needs to prove herself in a male-dominated profession. When the hottest scoop of her career plummets into her lap, she pursues the lead all the way to the Cricket World Championship in India. Until Gina steps back into his life, star player Storm Jones has only one desire – to take home the elusive World Championship trophy. To his surprise, he finds renewing his eight-year-old failed relationship with Gina is suddenly as important as winning the top prize. When whispers of match-fixing implicate Storm, Gina must make a decision. Will she choose her coveted career or the man she might just be falling in love with once again?

"Vida paints the world of international cricket and the tough role of a woman sports journalist in such a way that I could understand what seems to me a complicated sport. Even more poignant is how a woman journalist juggles her career with her love for a star on the South African cricket team. One misstep and she could lose either her job, her love, or both." - Judith Nasse, Amazon review
