This story was entertaining. There was a lot of both characters jumping to the wrong conclusions but eventually they figured things out. The narrators did a great job and I will definitely look for more of their work.

♥ Story ♥
This Novella is short but oh so sassy good. If you are starting with this title, then you get some early introductions to the sights and sounds that makes up the “world” that is this series. You will also get to meet and greet a few characters that you will see again.
Jessica Song is interning for spring training, and spends way to much time talking to her lady bits. Jay Pak Ahn is a sponsored rookie pitcher from Korea trying to make a good showing that will hopefully lead to a long term spot on an American team.
Both of them are horny and tired of waiting for a relationship to get some, but also gun shy because of their exes. They decide to help each other out so they can indulge in the carnal. There is just this one big problem, neither are truly casual sex kinda people so they can’t help but get feelings involved in the equation.
I feel bad for Jessica that her default thoughts on any expressions of emotion by Jay is automatically one of regret. Once she finally confesses her back story, you can see where that stems from, but she does take it to the extreme. Usually those thoughts come with the goodbyes or lack of contact after the deed, not the moment after climax.
There are some twists and turns that will come as a surprise. This does not play out in a predictable fashion. It does have some throat punch worthy moments, so be prepared to run the gambit of emotions even for a short listen.

This is a short funny, lighthearted sports romance. This maybe short, but it definitely packs a punch with how much it packs in.
Jay and Jessica definitely have plenty of chemistry which showed through Tor Thom and Charley Ongel's narration, who both did a great job bringing this story to life.

If you are looking for a quick, easy, sexy and sweet sports themed romance, this is it! Jessica and Jay's story is funny and charming but also reflects some of the insecurities of young love and past heartaches. I particularly enjoyed Jessica's somewhat cheeky inner goddess, who can be vocal at inappropriate times. Despite being short, Rachelle Ayala has managed to incorporate twists in the plot. The story also includes some subtle Korean cultural nuances which adds depth to the characters. Overall, an easy to listen to and enjoyable audiobook!
