Until that one pitch came along….
One game, one pitch. That’s all it took to change the course of Tommy Layton’s life forever. One minute he’s a rookie phenom burning it up in the major leagues and contending for Rookie of the Year. A split-second later, he’s on the injured list, deeply depressed, and trying to figure out how he’s going to get back everything he’s lost.
Lucy Valente understands all too well because she’s lost everything, too—her parents, her career, her money, and, most of all, her sense of hope. A chance encounter ignites a fire for both of them, but they’re stuck in the lowest valleys of their lives, so the timing couldn’t be worse. Lucy can’t seem to embrace the love and happiness she knows Tommy represents. And while he wants to give her the space she needs, he also realizes their chance to be together is quickly disappearing. How can they find their happily-ever-after when it feels like their happily-right-now is impossible?
This book can be read as a standalone, but the reading experience would be enhanced by reading Curveball: A Love Story first, as the stories intertwine.
Fans of Nicholas Sparks, who want to read stories that pack an emotional punch, but who secretly wish the characters wouldn’t die and the HEAs were guaranteed, will love this book!
Anne Trowbridge lives in New Jersey with her husband, two kids, and two dogs. When she’s not reading or writing, she’s working her way through careers like she’s marking off a bingo card, with years spent as a newspaper reporter, book editor, middle school language arts teacher, and now writer. She grew up all over the Midwest and somehow still loves to travel and see new places.
