In desperate need of a life make-over after a terrible divorce, librarian Mallory Cruise signs up to coach her daughter’s recreational softball team. So what if she doesn’t have an athletic bone in her body? It’s the change her therapist suggested. There’s only one problem.
Her co-coach, Jason Henry, a widowed jock popular among the single ladies who’s made it clear Mallory grates his nerves. He’s an arrogant jerk who knows a lot about softball but nothing about women.
Mallory just needs to prove herself. And she does, in a horrible flip of the lineup that costs them the game. The softball moms band together and are ready to tie her to the fence during batting practice. They won’t stop until Mallory’s out of the picture.
And the only one who can save her is Jason.
Will Mallory strike out at coaching the same way she struck out in her marriage? Or will Jason rescue her when she needs it most?contemporary, divorced mom, enemies to lovers, happily ever after, jock, nerd, Short Reads, single dad, single mom, sports romance, widowed dad
