Title: Announcing Trouble
Author: Amy Fellner Dominy
Publisher: Entangled Teen Crush
Published: August 5th, 2019
This is a delightful teen romance involving baseball, baseball players – and a young lady determined not to have anything to do with baseball players after her baseball playing father left to follow his baseball playing dreams, abandoning her and her mother. Oh, did I say it has a lot to do with baseball?
Josie Walters had shadowed her father and loved everything to do with baseball until he chose to follow the game rather than her. Now she’s determined to keep herself safe and never have anything more to do with the game that had been her life. All that changes, however, when she agrees to go to watch a game to support her best friend who has a crush on one of the team. Listening to the commentary on the match she can’t believe how many mistakes one of the commentators is making. She marches into the booth and lets him know just how inept he’s being – and inadvertently ends up commentating instead of him. She’s working alongside Garrett Reeves, a baseball pitcher who has been sidelined because of a serious arm injury and the rapport and banter make them a winning duo. Can she put aside her prejudices against athletes and work with him in an attempt to win a competition or should she let her head rule her actions and get as far away as fast as she can?
This is a story filled with great banter, plenty of humour and a growing romance. There are great characters, a determined hero and a heroine who learns to open her heart again. She has her safe life plans, with no risks and plenty of rules whilst he has lots of options but nothing certain. Can she learn to let fate intervene or will she keep her heart safe by keeping it locked away? It is an engaging, entertaining, fun and light-hearted read, just right to escape into when you want to relax.
Many thanks to Entangled Publishing for gifting me a copy of this book via NetGalley. This review is my honest opinion after choosing to read this book and enjoying doing so.
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.
