The sound of the gavel crashing down,
Has my life flashing before my eyes.
Learning to play ball.
Falling in love,
Marrying an incredible woman and starting a family
Becoming a starting pitcher for the Indianapolis Lightning.
Everything I ever wanted... Until I struck out.
The same success that gave me the life I dreamed of,
Took it all away.
I'd do anything for a second chance,
Even throw the perfect pitch.
A signature on a piece of paper...
It binds you to someone, or it can tear them away.
It broke my heart to file the papers.
Gutted me to sign them.
But this isn't the life I envisioned.
Tired of competing to be his number one priority,
I had to walk away from the man I loved.
I needed to be strong for our girls, for me.
Life goes on.
People can change.
Now he wants a second chance.
But can I forgive the man who threw it all away, and trust that he won't do it again?
Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Derek and Jillian are college sweethearts, that create some heartbreaking actions that created a demise to their future. Or... So you may think. I was highly impressed with the interactions of these two, and very happy that the drama was light within this story.
I am looking forward to the next story. Gonna be so great!!! I voluntarily reviewed this book from the author.
The Perfect Pitch
A little boring and tedious. It would make a good short story. There’s no plot to speak of, poor grammar, coukd use a good editor
Second Chance Romance at its best!
Second chance romance reads are one of my absolute favorite! And oh my goodness, Samantha has delivered an outstanding story yet again!
When the gavel drops so does Derek’s heart. It’s like the earth has shifted and he realizes how poorly his actions has affected his family.
Jillian is such a beautiful character, very determined to do what is best for her girls and herself.
Life has changed for both Derek and Jillian as the years have progressed. Although family has become less important for Derek.
Can Derek do what is best for his family? Or will he continue to have fun and party it up with his single teammates?
Let me just add, JJ’s story has a bit of an intro! And oh my how life will change!!
