Her brother’s best friend used to be Callie’s friend too. But that was before he became a jerk, and then her coach, and now…her first kiss.

There’s no doubt about it, Noah is avoiding Callie like the plague now that she’s living in the dorms on his college campus. She’d hoped this weeklong softball clinic would help put their past awkwardness behind them–after all, he’d taught her everything she knows about the game. But her brother’s best friend is more of a jerk than ever. Until he kisses her. And now…well, now she doesn’t know what’s going on between them. But it doesn’t matter, not really. She’s not here for Noah, she’s only here to show the recruiters at the big showcase game that she has what it takes to play for a college team.

It’s a solid plan…until it all falls apart. Thanks to Noah’s overprotective interference, she’s kicked out of the showcase game, and any chance of college scholarships slips out of her reach. But there might be a way to salvage her plan and her future. She just has to be seen, right? Noah’s the new coach for a charity softball event and he owes her big time. She might just be able to save her scholarship chances if she can survive his coaching…and his kisses.


Normally, I try to get further into a book, but I am not feeling it. I tend to like stories like this but for some reason, I don’t like being in either the hero or the heroine’s head. I eye-roll every part. I’m really confused about what’s going on between the two. Like did something happen besides the injury or is there something more?

I’m curious but not curious enough to continue on. Which is sad because it’s not that long of a book. I just have no interest to help strive forward.

Let’s assume this is another case of it’s me, not you.
