Release Date: 11/29/2022
Single Mom, Baseball Pro, Small Town Romance
She wants forever. He plays it day by day. They’re both wishing for the best in USA Today bestselling author Adriana Locke’s charming and sexy hopefully-ever-after romance.
Single mom Palmer Clark will not be sidelined by the new man in town. Sure, the honey-tongued baseball legend is gorgeous, loves puppies, and has charmed his way into the community’s heart, but Palmer craves stability. Nothing about Cole says forever. So why is he so hard to resist?
Cole is swinging through town to visit his parents when he meets the kind of down-to-earth distraction he’s been looking for since retiring from the majors. True, his long-term relationship score is zero. But even though raising his average with Palmer seems impossible, it’s worth a shot.
As promising as the summer nights are, fate turns small-town dreams upside down, and some lessons are learned the hard way. But having faith in love and choosing hope over fear might get Palmer and Cole to the sweet spot they’re looking for.
‘The problem is… I’m too old to be doing this. I’ve played around enough in my life – kissed enough boys behind sheds. Now I’m thirty-two and have nothing to show for it except the best kid in the world that I’m fully and solely responsible for.’
Palmer is a single mom with a past full of regrets and a future where the only constant, is her love for her son.
Cole is fresh out of a baseball career, a career that most were shocked to see end so abruptly. While home visiting his parents, he agrees to step in and help coach a youth baseball team.
Enter Ethan…this kid is amazing – honestly one of the best child characters I’ve read.
Can Cole give up his life in the big city, in the spotlight to be the man that Ethan and Palmer need? I really enjoyed this book – it wasn’t super emotional and deep, but it also wasn’t surface level. Good chemistry and plenty of laughs too!
USA Today and Washington Post bestselling author Adriana Locke lives and breathes books. After years of slightly obsessive relationships with the flawed bad boys created by other authors, Adriana has created her own.
She resides in the Midwest with her husband, sons, and two dogs. She spends a large amount of time playing with her kids, drinking coffee, and cooking. You can find her outside if the weather’s nice and there’s always a piece of candy in her pocket.
