I may know everything there is to know about baseball, but that doesn’t mean I have to like it. Or like him. Garrett Reeves: sidelined player and the embodiment of everything I’ve learned to hate about baseball. He’s gorgeous, he’s cocky, he’s laser-focused on getting back in the game, no matter the cost.
When he convinces me to call games alongside him, our chemistry heats up the booth. We’re good together, whether I want to admit it or not. I’m finding that I like baseball again, but even worse, I’m liking Garrett. A lot.
But when he has to decide between our future and a new shot at his dreams, I know baseball will win out every time. 
Disclaimer: This Entangled Teen Crush book has tons of hilarious banter, lots of sexual tension, and a hero who will throw a wild pitch right at your heart.

Books that have to do with sports are kind of my jam, so it was fun diving back into the young adult world with this contemporary romance from Amy Fellner Dominy. Also, it's the perfect time of year to read a book about baseball! Even though, I'm sorry this sport is so boring to me still! Sorry, I'm not sorry. 

I was immediately hooked with this novel because I just loved the banter between Josie and Garrett. It made my little black heart sing. The dude was super charming so no wonder Josie finally gave in to doing the color commentary for the baseball games with him. That was a really fun part of it.

One thing that did bother me a lot was how both Josie and her mom were so adamant that he was wrong for her just because he played baseball. Like not every guy is going to be like your dad. I understood it, but at the same time, it really irritated me because it just felt like the point kept getting beat into the reader after a time. I also wasn't really a fan of how Josie basically wanted a partner that was dedicated to her completely, but that she didn't have to be dedicated to them. That is just not fair. She turns it around in this book, but parts of her character just rubbed me the wrong way here. 

I did enjoy that this book talked a lot about looking to your future and what you really want out of that. I think it's a really hard thing for teens to figure out, basically because they don't really even know themselves yet. Josie thinks she has it figured out, but does she really? I enjoyed that about this.

I flew through this book and really enjoyed it, but some parts irritated me. Still a solid book.
