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

A spectacular, fun, engrossing read about choices, about taking chances and the consequences of following your dreams: Announcing Trouble is, for me, a 10 out of 5 star novel: truly a stellar read!

Where to begin? There is so much I want to say about this fabulous YA story and how pleased I am to have found yet another emotionally intelligent and gifted author in Amy Fellner Dominy.

Josie Walters is strong-minded: love had burned her badly and now she is determined to follow her mother’s example a

I really enjoyed this book and will definitely read more of this author. The writing style is catchy.

Baseball and Josie are a no go. They do not mix. Her best friend has developed a new crush. The no baseball rule is about to take a curve ball. Josies’s dad left them for the love of the sport. That leaves Joise with two things, an outstanding knowledge of baseball and a chip on her shoulder.

Garret is an injured player. He’s using his recovery time to commentate the game. His co-presenter is not

There was a famous baseball player from back in the day, who I need to steal a line from, because lately, baseball's been very, very good to me. I have recently read a quite a few fantastic baseball books, and I am adding Announcing Trouble to that list.

No lie, I was laughing and wearing a stupid grin for almost the entirety of this book, the other parts, I was wiping a few tears from my eyes. It was a really great emotional experience for me, and I attribute that largely to the

"For most of my life, I loved baseball as much as I loved my dad. Now, I hate it as much as I hate my dad."

Joe "Josie" Walters (clearly) hasn't had an easy childhood. Forced to relocate every few years while her father chased his dream of playing professional ball, Josie was used to changing things up and spending lots of time at
This has everything I like about YA, and I'm so happy I read it.

It has a sports oriented plot, yes, but with a refreshingly and unique angle. Josie seriously hates baseball, and Garrett is an injured baseball player, who might never play again. So instead of focusing on playing the game, it's about them collaborating on broadcasting games.

It was fun, adorable and contained some amazing banter between Garrett and Josie. Garrett's charm is of the chart while he tries to gain her trust.

This book was literally every single thing that I love about YA romance.

It. Was. Adorable.
And sweet.
And heartfelt.
And emotional in a way that I wasn’t really expecting, but that deeply resonated with me.

I was won over immediately by the banter. These are smart, funny, wholly relatable characters. I loved the chemistry between Josie and Garrett. I loved the way they connected and the authentically playful way they flirted, teased, and inevitably fell for each other. I loved how, even when I wante
Colleen's Conclusions
This book was adorable, cute and fluffy. It was a good read to read in the summer and I think it’s perfect for fans of Kasie West. I really liked the writing style because it was easy to get into and I finished the book quickly.

The characters were also likeable. I loved the enemies to lover trope. This book will leave you feeling warm and fuzzy! I highly recommend this book if you’re looking for something light and engaging to read this summer.

My Thoughts:

Announcing Trouble was a fast-paced, cute, and sweet story layered with humor, depth and emotion. It was a story that made me smile, laugh, swoon, and tear up. It made my heart hurt for the female lead Josie, and made me adore the male lead, Garrett.

Josie use to love Baseball. It was the way she bonded with her father, and a passion that they both shared. However, he ended up abandoning her and her mother, so that he could chase his dream without strings attached. Since that fateful

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.

This book was a light and easy read; it was sweet and had me hooked from the very first page.

Josie and Garrett were written beautifully! Josie has no interest in baseball at all after her father left her for the game, Injured Garrett lives for baseball and dreams of pursuing it as a career; when an opportunity arises for Josie to call games alongside Garrett she is hesitant but she soon finds herself enjoying it and also spending time with him.

Announcing Trouble came out of left field for me and I am so glad it did. I chose to sign up on a whim seeing it was a YA romance with baseball elements and I was intrigued from the first scene. Rather than focus on characters who actually play, we get almost all of the baseball action through the commentating booth. I haven’t come across a sports romance that dealt with the sportscaster type and that made this book new and exciting.

Maybe 4.5 stars. I was surprised by how much I liked this book. It's typically hard for me to rate a contemporary YA romance above 3 stars, but this one hit it out of the park (couldn't resist that--haha). And there's just something about sports books that always draws me in, despite my lack of enthusiasm about sports in real life.

Josie and Garrett are fantastic, individually and together. They complement

"It makes sense that when she finally decided to fall in lust, she'd fall hard."

This book is the perfect example of the kind of stories that made me fall in love with romance growing up. Told through the heroines perspective, Announcing Trouble, follows Josie through her last semester as a high school student--her future all planned out for safety, comfort, and absolutely no baseball. But when her best friend gains a crush on one the baseball athletes, Josie finds herself not only the new colo

For a cold day in hell, it's unseasonably warm.

Announcing Trouble hooked me in from the very first sentence. That doesn't happen often. Something about it just clicked with me, maybe because I've been feeling like the world as a whole (and my own world) has taken a bizarre turn, but it's still summer. (But who are we kidding, this bizarre turn started back in 2016.) And it kept me on the line, both with witty banter and some solid girl power.

Thank you to Netgalley and Entangled Publishing, LLC (Crush)! I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

In need of a color commentator for the high school baseball games, Garrett Reeves is at a loss. Until Josie Walters literally storms into the broadcasting booth and his life. Sarcastic, smart, and quick, she's exactly what he's been looking for. Too bad she doesn't want anything to do with him or the sport.

“His hesitation is proof that I’m right. I don’t want a guy who has to think about it. I want a guy who wants me. More than anything.”

Wow. I mean this in the best way possible but that was so much better than I expected. I thought the story had the perfect mixture of being humorous and realistic. Not too deep but enough to get all the feels when a character was going through what I would consider, painful. Painful memories. Sometimes the book had a good dose of angst (which I loved!).

Josie Walters doesn’t like it but she knows a lot about sports. Garrett Reeves gives her a chance to see if she’s got the chops to do the job. He seems to enjoy dangling a carrot in front of her. Giving up doesn’t seem to be part of his vocabulary. Josie has a great friend named Mai and she will give you plenty of chuckle moments. I didn’t think Josie’s mom was half bad especially since she watches one of my favorite programs.

As I read and get to know Josie, I have to wonder if

Making me smile all the way through, ANNOUNCING TROUBLE was a pure delight. Josie is almost eighteen with an enormous chip on her shoulder. After the way her baseball-obsessed father treated her and her mother, Josie has stayed away from baseball entirely. However, her BFF Mai is crushing on a guy from the team, and Josie ends up at a game. When one of the broadcasters makes another inaccurate statement, Josie heads up to the booth to tell him off, and she ends up getting offered his spot.

When he convinces Josie to help commentary their chemistry heats up in the booth. The back and forth, and banter. They are good together. After hating baseball for so long, Josie realizes that she may be starting to like the game again. And Garrett. Which could be a problem.
