Tristan is one of his school's best baseball batsmen but he's having a slump. For some reason he has lost his mojo and nothing he can do makes it better. His best friend Dylan is the pitcher and keeps giving him pep talks but nothing seems to help.

Alyssa's family owns and runs Swing Away, a small local business with eight run down batting cages, which is being squeezed out by a new multi-sport arena called Top Sports which has batting cages, a bar, bowling lanes etc. She and her best friend Lauren are trying out Dallas Ballet Conservatory and practicing every moment they get at Madame Schuler's with their other friend Faith (the lead in The Bad Boy Bargain).

Tristan decides to work on his swing in peace and chooses to avoid Top Sports where the rest of the team hang out, instead going to Swing Away where he meets Alyssa who gives him some pointers about his game. Alyssa and Tristan are instantly attracted to each other but unbeknownst to them Dylan is also attracted to Alyssa and Lauren is attracted to Tristan - cue a quartet of confusion!

This was a really cute, fun romance featuring baseball. I know nothing about baseball, so lots of it went over my head, but it seemed quite detailed. Tristan and Alyssa are all round great characters, hard working, respectful, loyal and family-orientated. I also thought the love quadrangle was well-handled and had a slight twist.

Thoroughly recommended, be aware this is a teen imprint so Alyssa and Tristan are 17-ish, the romance is PG but very sweet and you don't need to know much about baseball to enjoy.

I received a free copy of this novel from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
