A fun and flirty crossover novel from bestselling authors, Jennifer Bernard (Love Between the Bases) and Erin Nicholas (Sapphire Falls)!
Caitlyn Murray has never let on that she's had fantasies about her brother's friend Eli Anderson for years. She'd do anything for the sexy baseball player who walked away from stardom to stay in Sapphire Falls and take care of his family. But she and Eli are friends. Just friends.
So when her brother hatches a plan to get Eli to the pro baseball try-out for the Kilby Catfish and another chance at his dream, Caitlyn is all in. After all, what's a little kidnapping among friends?
A spot on the pitcher's mound for the Catfish isn't the only tempting thing about the spontaneous road trip. Eli already knows that Caitlyn is as sweet as the candies she makes for the Sapphire Falls bakery, but alone with her overnight in the tiny motel room in Kansas, it's impossible to resist the urge to take a little taste.
But when that taste leads to falling for the girl next door just as his front door is moving hundreds of miles away, can Eli really have it all? Or do they have too many strikes against them?

A must read!!!
I love the "older brothers best friend/best friends younger sister" trope, and Erin and Jen have nailed it in this book.
Caitlyn has one mission, and that's to help get Eli to the tryout of his dreams. Little did she know the short road trip could lead to the night of her dreams.
I loved the chemistry between these two. Caitlyn has a fantastic attitude,even when things don't work out her way. Eli is so freaking hot, and his insecurities about playing ball are sweet, and rarely a side we see in our heroes. I love the romantic side he gets when Caitlyn starts thinking about things too hard.
The secondary characters added just as much fun to the story as Eli and Caitlyn, and I loved catching up with some from the previous books in the Sapphire Falls/Love Between The Bases series'.
This book had me laughing, crying, and falling in love with these characters, and I'm sure you will love them too!
I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a great sports romance

He's her brothers best friend. She's the girl next door. Best of all? She believes in him. In his amazing abilities to play baseball...not just in Sapphire Falls but in the Major Leagues. So she teams up with her brother Bryan and their best friend Ty to kidnap Eli and get him to the open tryouts in Kirby. Where they are sharing a hotel room. Both of them have long hidden their desire for one another from their family and friends, but they are no longer hiding it from each other.
The Kilby Catfish. He made it. Eli is actually playing professional baseball. Only problem? He's missing Caitlyn something fierce.
Caitlyn is missing Eli too. But his birthday is coming up and she is the queen of birthday celebrations. She hops in the car and goes down to see him play. While there, she falls even more in love with not only Eli, but Kilby too.
Caitlyn has to fly back to Sapphire Falls when her idiot brother gets hurt again doing something stupid. She realizes she can't just stay in Kilby with Eli when her family needs her. But Eli needs her too. So much so that he's willing to leave baseball and the Major Leagues behind for her. For him. For their dreams together.
Can they figure out how to have it all and be completely happy doing it?
