Anyone who says they’re having the worst day hasn’t met me. My girlfriend cheated, I blew out my knee, and probably trashed my chance of going pro. All in one day. Then my jerk professor tells I’m almost on academic probation.
Awesome. Now I get to find a tutor.
Enter Mallory Fine, quiet, a little intense, and my kind of gorgeous. Who also happens to hate baseball and any guy who plays it.
I tell myself this will be nothing more than a tutoring relationship. I’m a liar. I want this girl. How hard can her secrets be to unravel? It might be a challenge, but so is getting back on the ball field and I’m determined to make that happen—no matter the cost.
I did enjoy this one. I was gravitated towards this book because Aaron is a college baseball player on the cusp going into the draft. Then of course life happens and he is probably at his lowest point and looks like lady luck has abandoned ship. I really liked Mallory. I loved she knows so much about baseball. The baseball trivia she Aaron gives her reminds me of how my grandpa does that with me. I will say this book takes a turn the I never expected. It does bring awareness to a growing problem in the sports world. I liked how Aaron uses the experience in the last chapter shows you what kind of man he is.
Lynn Stevens flunked out of college writing her first novel. Yes, she still has it and no, you can't read it. Surprisingly, she graduated with honors at her third school. A former farm girl turned city slicker, Lynn lives in the Midwest where she drinks coffee she can't pronounce and sips tea when she's out of coffee. When she's out of both, just stay away.
