The hardest lessons are a lot like a line drive to the heart.
Texas Wranglers’ ace Matt Roberts had it all: fame, fortune, his dream job. Until one line drive to the head ended it. Well, at least that was the case according to Twitter. Needing time to let his fractured skull heal—along with his psyche—Matt heads home to Del Rio, Texas, with one goal in mind—getting back to baseball. Unfortunately a certain redhead keeps driving him to distraction.
Seventh grade English teacher Jenn McDonnell is not happy that Matt’s come home and is staying with his brother—aka her best friend—while his thick skull heals. And she certainly could do without all the questions their group of friends suddenly has, like, “Why do you hate Matt so much?” Yeah, she totally has no desire to answer that one.
Unfortunately for Jenn the questions aren’t letting up, and unfortunately for Matt he can’t get Jenn off of his mind. Can Jenn put past hurt aside and teach Matt that there’s more to life than baseball? Furthermore, can Matt convince Jenn that this relationship isn’t doomed to strike out?
