“Hawks fans still in shock after centerfielder, Shepherd Oliver, sustained season-ending injury last night in the 5th inning of the playoffs against Chicago.”
Two years ago, I was a pretty big deal. I thought I had it all, until a blast from my past popped up on my social media feed, keeping my ego in check and reminding me how basic I am. Except sassy Wren Bennett isn’t just a blast from my past. She’s the only woman I ever saw a future with.
Even though my soul leaves my body every time she says she hates baseball and has never watched me play, a year’s-worth of messages filled with laughter and sarcasm only remind me how amazing my “pen pal” is. Unfortunately, it doesn’t matter how fine I look in a pair of baseball pants; I’m still 3,000 miles away, and she’s taken... or so I thought. Maybe I should have thought a little harder before I dropped her like a seeing-eye single into the outfield.
When an injury has me questioning everything about my life, I can only think of one place I need to go and one person I need to see. Home, to Summersweet Island, to get back my “pen pal.”
Now I just need to make sure single mom Wren knows I didn’t come back for a change, and I didn’t come back for a job. I’m swinging for the fences, and I’m finally coming home to make her mine. If only she’d stop insulting me and stay in one place long enough for me to tell her. She wouldn’t try to drown me with a tub of ice cream, right?
I’m sure it’ll be fine.
“I like to think I’m pretty strong, and I’ve had to be independent whether I wanted to or not. That doesn’t mean I’m not still a little old fashioned at heart. I still want the romance and the effort.”
Shepard and Wren are so much more than I expected. The laughter and the sweet moments were so much what I needed at this particular moment. Tara’s books usually give me exactly what I need. She’s just always had a way with her stories that spoke to me.
I really enjoyed the first book in this series, but this one she upped her A game and brought so much more to it. These books are light-hearted, humorous, and just all around sweet. I am always anxiously awaiting whatever comes next from Tara. I hope you check these books out for yourself. You can’t go wrong with any of her work.
“Whether it’s at first, or second, or in the outfield. No matter where I kiss you, Wren, I’m already home.”
