Description from Publisher:
Pitcher Dylan Dennings has his future all mapped out: make the minors straight out of high school, work his way up the farm system, and get called up to the majors by the time he’s twenty-three. The Plan has been his sole focus for years, and if making his dreams come true means instituting a strict “no girls” policy, so be it.

Lucy Foster, needlepoint ninja, big sister to an aspiring pitcher, and chicken advocate, likes a little mayhem. So what if she gets lost taking her brother to baseball camp…at her own high school? The pitching coach, some hotshot high school player, obviously thinks she’s a hot mess. Too bad he’s cute, because he’s so not her type.

Problem is, they keep running into each other, and every interaction sparks hotter than the last. But with Dylan’s future on the line, he has to decide whether some rules are made to be broken…

Disclaimer: This book contains a crazy night of moonlit skinny-dipping, a combustible crush, and kisses swoony enough to unwind even the most Type A athlete.

My Rating:
Heat Rating:

Awww, another wonderful Suttonville Sentinels book!!

This is definitely a very opposites-attract type of story, with a star baseball pitcher and a bit of a misfit who has a passion for fashion and sewing. Dylan was sweet and driven, and I really loved how Lucy was able to bring out more of his spontaneous side while he brought out a bit more of her "normal." The way they both were with Otis, Lucy's younger brother who loves baseball, was pretty adorable and Otis himself a really cute addition to the whole story.

There is the perfect amount of sexy, sentimental and fun to this series and I love the baseball angle (I am not a baseball person, per se, but can appreciate the love of the game... and most definitely the body of a ball player!)

Really nice arcs too. I really enjoyed how the story evolved, and how both of these opposites pushed each other to reach their potential and to live a bit differently (a little more carefree... and a little more structured :) ).

My Source: I received a digital ARC from the publisher to voluntarily review. This in no way influenced my review. My opinion is unbiased and my 100% own.
