Eve is used to being the odd woman out. As the only girl on her school's baseball team, she knows exactly how to put sweaty, macho baseball players in their place, and she's focused on one thing and one thing only—being the best pitcher she can be.

But when a freak accident forces her high school to be absorbed by the neighbouring town, Eve has to contend with a new group of guys who aren't used to having a woman on their team. And the new team's star pitcher, Jamie, has no interest in being ousted from his throne. He can't afford to give up his starting slot to a new pitcher—even worse, to a girl.

As the competition between Jamie and Eve starts to heat up, so does their attraction to each other. Can they keep their heads in the game, or will they end up getting played?


I love this story so much… :)It’s one of those books that you can’t put down and I flew through it very fast.

Eve is very athletic and good at it. She is also extreme strong and independent, playing baseball with guys made her very tough. Because of fire in her school she had to move to another school and her team was combine with the team of that school. Incoming Jamie. He is star of the team and her direct competition. They butt head all the time. I love reading about the dynamic of their relationship. She is such a strong character, as strong as you get. And Jamie is player, but is also sensitive and sweet.

They are both very strong and stubborn. And the outcome is hilarious. But there is more than meets the eyes in bot of them, as the story progresses we learn about them, more and more. It’s not just a light story, it about life, friendship, love and finding balance. I just LOVED it … :) I re-read it almost right after I finished it… :)

Happy reading,
