I may know everything there is to know about baseball, but that doesn’t mean I have to like it. Or like him. Garrett Reeves: sidelined player and the embodiment of everything I’ve learned to hate about baseball. He’s gorgeous, he’s cocky, he’s laser-focused on getting back in the game, no matter the cost.
When he convinces me to call games alongside him, our chemistry heats up the booth. We’re good together, whether I want to admit it or not. I’m finding that I like baseball again, but even worse, I’m liking Garrett. A lot.
But when he has to decide between our future and a new shot at his dreams, I know baseball will win out every time.
I received a free copy for an honest review.
I liked this book! When I first requested and received this book (thanks Entangle teen), I was really just looking for a standard YA contemporary book where I can “read and chill” and gush over overly cliché YA contemporary story-lines. Hence why I enjoyed it.
The romance is cute, which largely is thanks to the realistic portrayal of the cast that makes it so no character is annoying enough to make me want to kill my Kindle. The contemporary story managed to have a fair amount of conflict to keep the story going without being too over-dramatic to the point of being unbearable.
To sum up, what this book it’s like, it’s really just the typical YA Entangle Teen perfect for relaxing. But beware: your enjoyment of this book can drastically change depending on what you are craving now. Because I was just craving a fun contemporary book to read with an enjoyable romance, I liked this book. But if I’m wasn’t…then this would’ve been a horrible reading experience and I would have shredded this book in this review due to its unoriginal and “boring” story-line.
So as long as you know what you want (especially if you are just craving an easy fiction book), I would (or would not) recommend this book.

Hi! I’m the author of novels for teens and tweens as well as picture books for toddlers.

But no one said anything about kissing.
I live and sweat in Phoenix, Arizona with my hubby and a puppy who is training us.
