Synopsis: After an injury ends Travis Ford’s major league baseball career, he returns home to start over. He just wants to hammer out his frustrations at his new construction gig and forget all about his glory days. But he can’t even walk through town without someone recapping his greatest hits. Or making a joke about his… bat. And then there’s Georgie, his buddy’s little sister, who is definitely not a kid anymore.

Georgette Castle has crushed on her older brother’s best friend for years. The grumpy, bear of a man working for her family’s house flipping business is a far cry from the charming sports star she used to know. But a moody scowl doesn’t scare her and Georgie’s determined to show Travis he’s more than a pretty face and a batting average, even if it means putting her feelings aside to be “just friends.”

Travis wants to brood in peace. But the girl he used to tease is now a funny, full-of-life woman who makes him feel whole again. And he wants her. So damn bad. Except Georgie’s off limits and he knows he can’t give her what she deserves. But she’s becoming the air he breathes and Travis can’t stay away, no matter how hard he tries… (from Goodreads)

REVIEW

40623564Readability/Listen-ability: 5/5

It was easy to get into the rhythm of the writing of this book. The narrator, Charlotte North, was really good and made the story come to life for me.

Characterization: 4/5

I related so much to Georgie and her not-so-normal-sized legs with a crush on her brother’s friend — and I don’t even like clowns. I thought Travis’ character was a bit typical, though, which made his growth predictable.

Setting: 4/5

This is another small-town New York book, right after I said I hadn’t read many. It wasn’t exactly my style, but it was all right — nothing to complain about.

Interest Level: 4/5

I don’t know why it took me forever to read this book (aside from grad school rad school). It’s really cute and hot and has exactly what to look for in a rom-com.

Total = 17/20 = 85% B

Favorite Quote: Maybe it was the way she only reached his shoulder that sent protectiveness surging up to his jugular, while somehow—at the very same time—he wanted to seek refuge in her (230).”
