THE GAME CAN’T LOVE YOU BACK

Eve is used to being the odd woman out. As the only girl on her school’s baseball team, she knows exactly how to put sweaty, macho baseball players in their place, and she’s learned to focus on one thing and one thing only — being the best pitcher she can be.

But when a freak accident forces her school to be absorbed by the neighboring town, Eve has to contend with a new group of guys who aren’t used to having a woman on their team. And the new team’s star pitcher, Jamie, has no interest in being ousted from his throne. He can’t afford to give up his starting slot to a new pitcher — especially to a girl.

As the competition between Jamie and Eve starts to heat up, so does their attraction to each other. Can they keep their heads in the game, or will they end up getting played?

HOW TO KEEP ROLLING AFTER A FALL


The party was at her house. The photos were posted to her Facebook account. That’s all the evidence anyone needed to condemn Nikki Baylor for a horrible cyberbullying incident. Now she’s been expelled from her old school, her friends have abandoned her, and even her own parents can’t look her in the eye.

With her plans for the future all but destroyed, Nikki resigns herself to being the girl everyone hates, almost as much as she hates herself.

But then she meets Pax, a spirited wheelchair rugby player who knows what it’s like when one mistake shatters your life. He shows her that everyone deserves a second chance… and everyone deserves to be loved.
