Zach Porter was living the dream, pitching for the major leagues with the New England Mavericks, being courted by the press and Hollywood starlets, tables at the best restaurants, endorsement deals, everything he wanted from his career. Until he injured his shoulder. Now, as he comes back from surgery and works his way back to the pitcher's mound, he has his sights set on something else—Piper Lewis, a beautiful, deaf artist he met while visiting his siblings in Grayson Falls, New Hampshire. Zach knows the best years of his career are behind him, but he's got one more goal in mind before he can leave the game on his own terms.
Piper Lewis wasn't born deaf. She lost her hearing as a young adult after a serious illness. She had to relearn how to approach the world around her, fight to establish her independence, and her place in the art world. Painting is more than just a passion for Piper. It's her therapy. Her way to make sense of a world that keeps putting obstacles in her way. Just when she was starting to think about joining her parents in Florida, Zach Porter blew into Grayson Falls. Her favorite baseball player in the flesh, and he set his sights on her.
Zach and Piper are from two very different worlds. His is loud, crowded, and exciting. Hers is quiet, peaceful, and private. To make a life together, they'll need to learn to adapt and survive in each other's world, learn to live outside of their comfort zones, and learn to play The Perfect Game.
