I was destined for stardom.
From the age of seven, I was an all-star.
Parents praised me, coaches worshipped me.
As I got older, girls begged for me.
I was Beltline’s baseball God, guaranteed to put this small town on the map.
Then, after one night, that future vanished.
The legend was laid to rest.
I gave up my scholarship.
I fled from Beltline.
I left the girl behind.
Now, I’m back.
I loved this story. The story line was really unique. I liked that there was suspense and the story slowly unraveled as you begin to piece together what happened to the two characters when they were younger.
Crosby and Ella are really perfect for each other and because they have this tragedy in common, they help each other through it and support each other.
It’s a really sweet story. I recommend :)
Review: Rounding Third
Rounding Third by Michelle Lynn is the first standalone in a new series. I'm not sure what the series will be called but I can't wait for the next book ;-)
Beautifully written with interspersed flashbacks to the event that changed both Crosby and Ella's lives irrevocably this is my kryptonite. A second-chance romance that has a tragedy that they have to work through together to get to their ultimate and well-deserved happily ever after.
An absolute pleasure to read, the words just flowed right off the page leaving me turning the page to the complete disregard of everything else around me. Crosby and Ella are flawed and human and the secondary characters are just as integral to the story as the main characters. The conflict is painful and deep but the end result is completely worth the ride!
The book goes through too many unnecessary problems and feelings. The author wanted to make this book super complex and ruined the book. The length of the book vs the progress of the story aren’t matched. The book is too long for the simple storyline.
