Genre: Young adult, romantic fiction, sport
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.
Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book has tons of hilarious banter, lots of sexual tension, and a hero who will throw a wild pitch right at your heart.
Feisty female lead that’s into sports, and witty banter that breeds great escapism – need I say more?
Josie, daughter of a professional baseball player that abandoned her and her mum, hates baseball almost as much as she hates baseball players. But when she does her friend a favour and attends a game to watch her BFF’s crush, she finds herself as an announcer with Garrett, injured pitcher for her highschool team. As the sparks fly, she has to decide whether she can handle baseball again, while Garrett has to make her trust him – both easier said than done.
Great characterisation, dialogue that had me laughing into my baseball mitts (disclaimer: I don’t actually own any), and a generally all-round sweet read. It was also great to read about a girl that knew more about sport than most of her peers, and, although the ending was, while predictable, a little out of character for our leading lady, I have to admit I’ll be filing this one under “guilty pleasures”. Recommended.
