Zoe Parks learned the hard way that nothing sticks the first time. Everybody is always looking for the next best thing. That's how Zoe knew minutes before she was supposed to be married that the first engagement was all wrong. If the first engagement isn't right, how can the first marriage be right, especially if it happens when you're on what was supposed to be your honeymoon?
Alex Pedroza knows that being the new guy on the team means putting up with whatever the guys dish out. That's why Alex can't go home without the wife he thought he was going to have when he returns from the offseason. Can he convince the woman he married while trying to forget the one he didn't to come home and play the part just until the divorce is final, of course?

Wow. Different than what I expected. Bunt was a great story. It was different than what I expected. I kinda, sorta, really liked this story. It had romance and humor, but it also has some spontaneity. I really kind of like that about this book. I also hope that this is just the first story in this series.
The plot of this book was interesting. Think fake husband, but you actually married them. Add in a runaway bride scenario and well you have Bunt. This book explores how insecurities can hinder your life. What happens when you make a spontaneous decision that changes your life forever? Would you go with it or forget it ever happened?
Zoe is a great character. I liked how independent she is. She knows what she wants out of life and she goes for it. Her only problem? She has this superstition that has ruled her life. Then you have Alex. He is trying to adjust to his new team while also maintaining his life from before. When a wrench is thrown into his plans, will he live up to expectations? I loved how strong he is. He has a huge heart and really cares about others.
The heat in this book is amazing. These two characters have an immediate attraction. This only gets better as they get to know each other. Add in some unexpected feelings and things start melting. I really like the heat in this book. These two characters really know how to come together in an amazing way.
The writing style of this book is great. The pace is steady. I like all the spontaneity. I think the real hero in this book is Hayden. She is the perfect best friend. She is there for Zoe when she needs it the most. I liked the setting of the book. I also liked the plot twist. I didn’t expect that.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. Bunt is a good story with great characters. This really opened a new world. I am dying to know about Ainsley. I really hope the author writes her story next. I would recommend this book to others. It is a great book that will keep you entertained.

Bunt is the first book in the Minnesota Moose series, focusing on the life of a Baseballer and a runaway bride.
Everyone should have a best friend that you can signal and they will get you out of your wedding so fast the groom doesn’t know what hit him. When Zoe gave the ear tug she didn’t even subconsciously know what she was doing. Zoe decided going on her honeymoon solo was a brilliant idea and that is how she came to the conclusion that marrying the hot guy in the bar who had been dumped too was the best way to erase all those horrible first’s. Alex couldn’t get his new fake bride off his mind, 1 night together and he was ruined. When he begs for her to make it real for his team, lies are told and they are both left trying to hold the pieces together of their broken hearts.
I don’t even know where to start with these 2, they are both spontaneous and have hearts of gold leaving me swooning. Zoe and Alex have chemistry there is no doubting it, leaving their 1 night together a prominent memory for both of them. The sexual tension grew throughout the book and when it finally snapped they were explosive.
This was my first novel by Thompson and I would have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed it, with dual POV’s she gave us an insight into both characters emotions which lead to me not wanting to put this book down.
I personally loved this book, while this book is based on the life of a Baseball player the aspects of the sport does not overshadow the storyline which I loved. I cannot wait to get my hands on the 2nd book as the minor characters throughout have their own secrets and stories to tell.
