In desperate need of a life make-over after a terrible divorce and at the urging of her therapist, librarian Mallory Cruise signs up to coach her daughter’s recreational softball team, even though she doesn’t have an athletic bone in her body.
Jason Henry, a widowed jock popular among the single ladies, signs up on the same day as Mallory, after skipping her in line.
The problem is there’s one position available, and the recreational center has made it clear: they coach together or not at all. Not wanting to disappoint their daughters, they join forces.
It’s not long before Mallory’s lack of skills leaves her to fall afoul to a group of softball moms ready to tie her to the fence during batting practice. No doubt Jason, who’s made it clear she grates his nerves, would celebrate her demise. But in an unexpected play, he saves her. And during afternoon backyard practices, evening home-cooked meals, and overnight home runs, they learn the importance of opening their hearts again.
So when countless women flaunt themselves at Jason, and Mallory’s insecurities rise, she must learn that love can’t exist without trust before misunderstandings and misconceptions make her strike out at love.
BIOGRAPHY Crystal Estell is a romance author who spends her days caring for the sick and her evenings chasing happy ever afters. Somewhere in between she finds time for her husband, kids, dogs, chickens, and cockatiel, Puck, who flew into her life uninvited. Fueled on coffee and wine, she often does crazy things like paint the walls of her home twice, build her own furniture, repair broken appliances, install her own floors—and then shares how she did it. Her goal is to amass an army of fans who love romance as much as she does so she can rule the world—although she’d happily settle for the rank of full-time author.
