it was amazing

Tristan is a baseball player. He's a slugger for the Suttonville Sentinels and there's a big chance he'll be team captain after the summer. Tristan has a problem though, he's lost his swing and needs to find a way out of his slump before he ruins his team's chances to win the state championship. He decides to do some training on his own and ends up at Swing Away, an old fashioned batting cage business. There he meets the girl of his dreams, will she be able to help him get his swing back?

Alyssa likes working at her father's batting cages very much. She has two loves, baseball and dancing. She wants to be a professional ballet dancer and is working hard for an important audition that will, if she succeeds, give her the chance to dance all summer. She's been saving for it for a long time, but her father's business is in trouble and Alyssa wants to help him. She can't stand the idea of working for a shiny over the top sports complex that's putting small individual businesses at risk. What can she do to save her family's livelihood? And does falling in love fit into her busy schedule, is there room for a gorgeous baseball player, someone who makes her heart beat faster every time she sees him?

Swinging at Love is an incredibly sweet story. I immediately liked Alyssa. She's mature for her age, she works hard, she never gives up and she's smart. I loved how talented she is. Tristan is a good guy, he's a gentle kindhearted person with many insecurities because he wants to do well and make his family proud. He's a great listener and he knows what he wants. Alyssa helps him to get over his slump and they fall in love. There are a lot of things working against them though and I couldn't wait to find out if they'd have a chance together.

Kendra C. Highly writes about sports in an energetic and lively way. I loved her passion for baseball and liked reading about Tristan's games and Alyssa's excellent advice. Swinging at Love is romantic and cute. Alyssa and Tristan are wonderful together and their love story is endearing. Kendra C. Highly's writing has a nice, easy flow and her books are both fun and charming. I really enjoyed reading this lovely, well written, lighthearted story.
