It started with one night out with the boys.
She was the hot diner waitress putting herself through school.
I was the rich, arrogant player everyone misjudges.
On paper we didn’t match.
Yet all it took was one day. One single day to change her mind.
She wasn’t planning to spend her day off with me.
She wasn’t supposed to fall for my charm.
But one day, one smile, turned into several nights of her calling out my name.
I’m not the guy she should end up with. I’m jealous, possessive. Not here for a long time – just a good time.
She’s changed me.
But, for some reason, I feel her slipping through my fingers and no matter what I do, I fear I’m going to strike out with the one and only girl I’ve ever fallen for.

Let me say that Holt is really a smoooooooooth talker! And so cocky! Wow! And his ability to come up with a double entendre after anything said by Harmony was extremely impressive! I really enjoyed getting back into the college years with the Brentwood baseball boys that we know from the other books in this series of standalones. I even got some time with my favorite Jason Orson.
The meet-cute wasn’t all that cute really, although the guys being drunk was pretty funny, especially their conversations. Harmony was a strong woman, but I definitely had some issues with how she refused help in certain situations or how she would do what I considered overreactions to things Holt did. But hey, Holt definitely was not perfect either. His jealousy and anger in those situations was so over the top that I understood a little bit why Harmony would get mad at him.
I liked that they were able to have fights and then figure it out without it becoming huge breakups, at least for the most part. And then the twist at the end was almost totally out of nowhere! But it definitely threw a monkey wrench into what had seemed to be a perfect relationship.
My favorite parts of this book, however, probably had to do more with some of the little Easter eggs that the author threw in though. Like the Hallmark movie with Meghan Quinn, wink wink. And then, at the end, when someone talked about some Hallmark movie where the two love interests had a break of 8 years and how that was crazy and infuriating, I almost screamed because that was so like what this author did with the first book in this series.
Another solid entry into the Brentwood baseball boys, it was great getting Holt’s story.
