Summary

I, Cooper Rock, baseball god, worshipper of women, hometown hero, beloved son and brother, and owner of a well-deserved ego, have always reached for the stars. Usually in baseball.

In love? Nah. When you’ve played the field as much as I have and haven’t been bit by the bug, you’re immune.

Or so I thought until she walked back into my life.

Waverly Sweet. Pop music sensation. Universally beloved for good reason. She’s freaking awesome. Kind. Funny. Talented. Sexy as hell. Real. And still completely out of my league.

But I have been hit by the Waverly Sweet tour bus of love, tumbled head over heels, and come up in a field of Waverly-scented roses. This is it. She’s my one and only, and this time, I won’t screw it up.

I’m cleaning up my reputation. I’m ignoring the doubters. I’m channeling everything I have into proving to her that I can be the man she deserves.

No matter what else I have to sacrifice for love.

Including baseball.

Irresistible Trouble is a hilarious home run of a romcom about a baseball player whose ego is catching up to him, a pop star who’s a bit of a hot mess when the cameras aren’t looking (and sometimes when they are), and the kind of family and teammates that everyone deserves…in small doses. While this laugh-out-loud romance stands alone with a sweet-swoony HEA, you won’t go wrong if you dive into the entire Fireballs series, starting with Jock Blocked, first. And for more Cooper Rock cameos, check out Master Baker (a standalone featuring Cooper’s brother) and the Bro Code series.

Absolutely Brilliant!! 😃

I LOVE the Fireballs series already, and have listened to all of the previous books several times already.

Cooper & Waverley's story is a fantastic addition to an already Fab series! I laughed out loud so many times while listening and also shed more than a few happy tears at times too.

As usual with Pippa's books, it also contains lots of wonderful cameos from all of her other books and updates on their lives and loves.

My husband is highly amused that these books have also turned me into an avid Baseball Fan, and right now I'm constantly staying up really late to watch all of the Postseason Games. This sudden conversion to Baseball Fan is all the more unusual because we're English and Baseball is non-existent here!

I will definitely be listening to Irresistible Trouble lots more times, and I really, really hope that this isn't the end of the Fireballs series! #teamwooperly all the way!!

Irresistibly Good!!

Cooper freaking Rock!! Pippa is a comfort author for me because she has this way with words that makes me feel good all over! Cooper was devilishly charming. Waverly was a total sweetheart! These two were just perfection! There was one moment that brought tears to my eyes and put me in my feelings unexpectedly. This story was hilariously entertaining! The laughs, the team and family camaraderie and shenanigans, I loved it all. Mackenzie Cartwright had a tone that was sweet and perfectly on point for Waverly. Connor Crais had a tenor that he added the right emotion to as Cooper. These two did an amazing job. Overall, another fantastic addition to the Copper Valley series!

Love and laughter!

Homerun! That is what Pippa Grant has hit with her fourth book in the Copper Valley Fireballs series! Cooper Rock is realizing his dreams. Finally bringing his team to the World Series is attainable and he is going to do it this year. He just needs to keep up his routine and everything will fall into place. He didn't plan on Waverly Sweet though. Down to earth pop star, she is exactly as her name entails. Sweet. Years ago, the two met and their feelings strong, but life took them in different directions. Now here is a second chance for them to find their way. This book has it all. Cooper is so sweet! His romantic swoony way had me falling right away. I love his family, and love their teasing! Waverly is very easy to relate to as she finds her true dreams and love. Grant is a master at melding laugh out loud humor with an amazing story, and this quickly has moved to one of my favorites.

Connor Crais and Mackenzie Cartwright are a fantastic team. I love every time I see that they are narrating together. Both of these narrators understand their characters and create the perfect personalities for them. Crais becomes Cooper, the confident and swoony athlete, and he makes him real as he faces his own insecurities. Cartwright is fabulous as Waverly, taking her on her journey with nuances in her voices that show her emotions and make us believe. Loved this performance!

Cooper might be my new favorite now

I am a fan of all things Pippa Grant, however it’s been a while since I have listened to anything from her. What have I been thinking!? This book was so much fun. No major drama, just happy & fun Cooper and Waverly. Pippa has the best Characters and uses the best narrators to give them life. I can’t wait to re-listen asap. I definitely recommend this book or any others by Pippa.

Team Wooperly

OMG! This book was so worth the wait! Pippa Grant knocked it out of the park Cooper Rock style! Waverly Sweet was the perfect partner to bring Cooper's ego to it's knees. I love them both so much! Thank you Pippa!

Home run!

Pippa Grant is an author that I always know I will enjoy and this book was no exception. This is a second-chance, rockstar, athlete romance between a pro baseball player and a pop star with plenty of ups and downs and twists and laughs to keep you listening long into the night.

The characters are unexpectedly relatable even though they are both famous and talented and living lives that most of us can't really imagine. The story is well developed with plenty of steam and heart, but with a lot of banter and funny situations to keep you giggling along the way.

Connor Crais is at his very best as this cocky pro baller that has realized there is more to life than just baseball. Mackenzie Cartwright beautifully brings to life the pop star who is ready for a break and a chance to do something for herself and not for everyone else. I only wish Mackenzie had a chance to sing because she has an incredible singing voice! Well worth the credit.

Wow! Incredible Journey

What an amazing story about our favorite Fireball. Cooper is a genuine, goofy and overall great guy! Waverly was so sweet and caring. Their story was perfect.

I will admit that while this book is great on its own, it is 100% better having gone through the Fireball journey and knowing each of the Rock family members. After reading all of those stories first, you feel like you truly know these people and the stakes are just THAT much higher. I highly recommend reading the others before this one (but again not necessary).

Finally the narrators, Connor and Mackenzie, did a PHENOMENAL job bringing these characters to life. Connor especially had the tough task of having to voice so many of the secondary characters but he aced it. Mackenzie did a fantastic job making Waverly relatable and loveable.

Fabulous read. This is one that I will revisit repeatedly for sure!

Cooper Rock is Irresistible!

Pippa did it again… swooning here! Cooper and Waverly are perfect. Cooper is the fun Waverly needs and Waverly is the muse Cooper must have.
Cooper’s obsession with Baby Ash is so adorable you just want to squeeze him and Hashtag reminds me of my little demon Einstein.
As usual Connor Crais and Mackenzie Cartwright did a fabulous job bring the heat and souls of the characters to life.
It was wonderful to have the whole Fireball and Shpwreck families join forces and make appearances.

Excellent

The long-awaited Cooper Rock story arrives, and it was worth waiting for. Ms. Grant did an excellent job opening up Cooper Rock’s thoughts and feelings to the reader. She supplied a great match for him in Waverly. Their story is a good mix of comedy and heartfelt explorations of what truly makes someone happy. Just lovely.

The narration by Mackenzie Cartwright and Connor Crais was very well done.

I recommend Irresistible Trouble highly.

baseball and the rockstar

This story is so much fun. I laughed at all the antics, Cooper' s family and teammates prank him,
Waverly is America's sweetheart ever since she was a teen. A rockstar, kept busy by her aunt to who manages her career and life. No time for relationships, no time for friendships. Strictly working,.concerts, recording, tv show.promotions. She is living but not enjoying life.
Cooper.shows her that she can have a life and career,she has to learn to balance them all.
I love Cooper' s outlook on life, he is, fun, goofy, caring, he is a womanizer. He has to prove to Waverly he has only an interest.in her.
Mackenzie Cartwright and Connor Crais bring joy and fun.. and both breathe life into all main and secondary characters. Thank you for a wonderful listen.
