Synopsis: Annie Lucas’s life is about to be turned upside down when her dad gets a job coaching the pitchers for the Kansas City Royals. They move to Missouri which Annie finds especially cold. Annie also starts to attend an all girls school, which means no boys. Annie has her own dreams which involve placing first at every track meet, and also one starring the hot new pitcher for the Royals.

Jason Brody is completely off-limits. Her dad would kill them both several times. Not to mention the fact the Brody has some what of a notorious past. He dates super models, not smart mouth high school girls. The last thing either should be doing is taking it to the next level.

But you know what they say about baseball, it isn’t just a game, its life, and it can break your heart.

Thoughts: I fell in love with this book from page 3 and I couldn’t put it down. I read it in a day and I wished there was more. Both of the characters are very real and relatable. The humor the two share, had me cracking up. I also experienced more than one emotion. I am sure I experienced all of them. Julie Cross did an amazing job at taking a fictional relationship and making it seem real. You wanted to be Annie, while she was with Brody. Her mom, just made me so angry, I couldn’t take it! Overall this was such a wonderful read and I plan on rereading it!

Thanks for stopping by, Emily.
