Rating: 3.5 Stars

Alyssa's family is in danger of losing their business. Tristan is in danger of keeping his team from the championship due to his batting slump. In an effort to secretly work on his swing, Tristen finds himself at Alyssa's batting cages. Circumstances brought them into each other's lives, and they found comfort in each other. But there may be some unexpected hurdles to overcome before this romance is able to fully blossom.
Out of nowhere, fully formed, Tristan dropped out of the sky at the moment she most needed someone. And maybe she'd don't the same thing for him

I really liked both Alyssa and Tristan, and I had not problem getting on this ship. Alyssa was this softball player turned ballerina, who she still knew her way around the ball field. She was spunky and not afraid to go after things she wanted. I admired her dedication to her friends and her family. She was loyal and quite often put other people's needs above her own. This was something she struggled with in the story, and where she experienced the most growth.

Tristian was a star ballplayer, but he was not your typical jock. He was so sweet to Alyssa. I swooned many times. He was also a loyal friend and teammate, and I really liked the bromance between him, Dylan, and Kyle. They actually talked about their feelings, and supported each other. It was great.

Highley did a great job weaving baseball into this story. She did a great job with the tension experience with Tristan's failing swing and each big game they played.

I have read some reviews where they felt the ending was over the top, but I loved it! Highley showed Tristan as a hero in multiple ways, and the ending was the big gesture. It was perfect.

I found this book adorable and a total feel-good read. There was a great romance, supportive families and friends, and a lot of swoony-sweet moments as well.
