Seventeen-year-old Annie Lucas's life is completely upended the moment her dad returns to the major leagues as the new pitching coach for the Kansas City Royals. Now she's living in Missouri (too cold), attending an all-girls school (no boys), and navigating the strange world of professional sports. But Annie has dreams of her own—most of which involve placing first at every track meet…and one starring the Royals' super-hot rookie pitcher.
But nineteen-year-old Jason Brody is completely, utterly, and totally off-limits. Besides, her dad would kill them both several times over. Not to mention Brody has something of a past, and his fan club is filled with C-cupped models, not smart-mouthed high school “brats” who can run the pants off every player on the team. Annie has enough on her plate without taking their friendship to the next level. The last thing she should be doing is falling in love.
But baseball isn't just a game. It's life. And sometimes, it can break your heart…
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This was a sweet YA contemporary romance, although I preferred the romance to the other storylines.
I liked both Annie and Jason. I thought it really unfair the way Jason was treated by his family, and how he was all alone and nobody but Annie’s father wanted to give him a chance. Annie was sweet, but I wanted her to be slightly more assertive.
The storyline in this was good, but I preferred the romance to the sports stuff. I liked the sports stuff in Julie Cross’ Letter’s series, but maybe baseball just doesn’t do it for me? I found the storylines other than the romance a little dull and too slow unfortunately.
When the romance got going it was pretty good, and I really wanted Annie and Jason to get together and make a go of things! This pair were pretty steamy together, and I wanted people to stop getting in the way of them being together.
The ending to this was fairly happy which was good. I really wanted this pair to get a happily ever after as they were a cute couple.
Overall; sweet YA contemporary romance,
