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.
Review by: Jennifer
Some times things just don't turn out the way we think they will, plans always have a way of changing. Aaron had a plan, things were going to go just so, until his girlfriend broke up with him, and then even worse, his knee blew out. Now what was supposed to be a certain path of straight and narrow becomes a struggle. Aaron has to hire a tutor to help him get through a class so he can at least stay eligible to play ball. Mallory has laid out clear boundaries for tutoring and she isn't playing, she doesn't have time for games and ball players are the worst. But when Aaron decides that its Mallory that he wants, will he be able to get her to open up? Will the secrets that Mallory holds close ever come out? What happens when it comes out that Aaron has a secret or two as well?
So this turned out to be a bit different than what I was thinking it would be. Aaron's life turns upside down with his injury, adding to that he is now in danger of failing a class and his girl is now his ex, him meeting Mallory took a turn for the better. This story was more about his injury and how he deals with healing. The connection between Mallory and Aaron is dealt with at a slow pace and that was good for the book, but TBH for a few minutes I was thinking this would end unresolved as it was going at SUCH a slow pace, but it just sort of ends. With some drama, a bit or two of sexy time this was an ok read. I give this 3.75 stars.
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.
