Rules of the Game

Finished May 29 
Rules of the Game by Lori Wilde

This book is the second book in a series of novels set in Stardust, Texas. Jodi Carlyle was jilted at the altar a year ago. She's been making progress in therapy, and with her sister's wedding just a few weeks away, she knows she must get her anxiety regarding weddings under control. Her assignment is to attend a wedding. 
But of course Jodi decides to go all out, and makes plans to crash one of the swankiest wedding in nearby Dallas. She is nearly caught, but Jake Coronnado, the new hitter for the Dallas Gunslinger's baseball team rescues her from a tricky situation. She gives Jake a false name and doesn't pretend that their wild night is anything but a fling. What she doesn't know is that Jake has stepped in as best man at her sister's wedding and they are going to be spending a lot of time together.
A case of strong attraction, both characters getting over events in their past, and small town connections, this romance has lots of plot as well. Jodi runs a popular BandB with each room a different railroad car, and I found that interesting too. The Carlyle family is close, and the existence of a special object with deeper meaning and perhaps even a tendency to foretell the future brings an added element to the story that is carried through the series. 
A fun and light read, with many interesting characters.
