She's the hottest professional softball player in the country.

All my teammates want to be her or be with her. They think the fact that she retired and took a job coaching our college team is the greatest thing that ever happened to the Marchant State Hawks.

They don't know the real Penelope Flynn.

I've spent the last eight years of my life trying to erase the

DNF@40%... It was too childish and the characters just weren’t mature enough, especially the coach. There’s a lot lacking and I was just not feeling this story.

This is more of a 3.5 rounded up book for me. It was mostly well-written but had some typos and punctuation errors sprinkled throughout. I think the thing that bothered me the most was the sudden jump from "I hate you for breaking my heart" to "I want to be with you forever." The book started off at a great pace, giving the reader some back story from both main character perspectives, and then casually strolling into the reason why they meet again years later. But the transition was awkward and ...more

This is primarily a low-budget sex romp. The almost instant transition from one-sided hate to full on partners is awkward at best. Marley's preschool temper tantrums are at complete odds with her position as the supposedly charismatic team captain. Finally, the depiction of an intercollegiate sports team is not at all believable. ...more

It was okay with a HEA ending, though as I mentioned in my lone progress note (why doesn't iOS's Kindle app have a way to just click through to GoodReads in mid-story?) there's a lot of emo and nasty rivalry to the two succumbing first to their mutual attraction, and finally to trusting each other enough to love. I wanted to yell "High School's over, time to woman up!" in both their ears through the first half of the book.

Marley is in her senior year of college and is a star catcher on the school's softball team. When her team's coach has a baby, the school hires a temporary replacement to get them through the season. That replacement is Penny (Penelope), Marley's former high school crush who broke her heart and almost turned her off softball.

Since I like second chance romances and college settings, I chose to read this book. It is a decent story with interesting characters, though there are some inconsistencies

Competition can fuel your spirit but love heals your heart.

Penelope and Marley love softball more than anything. Penny broke Marley's heart her freshman year with words spoken for all the wrong reasons. They both needed to grow up. The characters meet in college during Marleys senior year. They are locked in a love - hate kind of relationship till they clear the air. Together the help each other face hard facts and try to move forward. The author gives well written syptoms of Rheumatoid Arthriti

Girl jocks - gotta love it!

Nothing like a broken heart courtesy of your first love and idol! Only to use that heartache to spur your desire to succeed at all costs! Love the feeling of family you get when playing on a competitive sports team. This book has a happily ever after and a few hot f/f sex scenes - a quick and enjoyable read!

Not a bad story

This was a good story, lots of steamy sex scenes, would if preferred more sports. But on the whole not a bad book.

Lark Maren was 'fired' as the sports editor of her high school newspaper back in 2001 because she was more interested in the juicy gossip behind the players than the actual games themselves.
After a (long enough) stint as a political analyst, she decided to get back to her roots and follow her love of writing about sports, this time on her own terms.
