Publisher's Summary

Underdog Luke "Single" Singleton is yearning to make a comeback. After getting hit in the neck with a pitch - an injury that nearly cost him his life - he has one last chance to play for his hometown team, the Stockton Beavers. But his mom has Alzheimer's, and he's all she has to depend on. How can he pursue his career, much less someone special?
Personal care aide Roberta Bennett is done dating baseball players. Having had her share of heartbreak, she heads to Stockton hoping for a fresh start. But after she finds Luke's mom outside, lost, and alone, she can't refuse when he hires her on the spot. Unbeknownst to Luke, Roberta is all too familiar with the violent tendencies of the pitcher who hit him.
Now that they're living under the same roof, the last thing either of them is looking for is a relationship. But it's not long before they find themselves drawn to each other. And right when Luke is thinking about finally making a change to his single status, a secret from Roberta's past emerges with the power to tear them apart.

Sports Romance with Heart 💝

I was pleasantly surprised by this book. After reading one of the negative reviews, I wasn't expecting too much but I'm thinking that maybe that reviewer just didn't truly relate to some of the issues in this book.

Single is a story about an "underdog" (Luke) who is a sweet and dedicated baseball player who is very loyal to his family. Roberta, is a misunderstood young woman with a good heart. Together, they start toward a path of friendship, respect and love. It's a sweet story that touches the heart.

There was a lot I could relate to in this book but the topic of Alzheimer's and abuse was front and center for me. The author was very respectful of Luke's and Roberta's journey dealing with these issues. Every Alzheimer's and abuse case is different and it was nice to see this written with dignity.

The narration was good. It took me a while to get used to the female narrator but once I did....she did fine. As always, listen to the audio sample before purchasing. Everyone's narration preferences are different.

Note: For those who want to know.......There is some swearing and are sexual situations in this book.

Overall: 3.75

I would like to thank the author, narrator, or publisher for providing me this audiobook at no cost in exchange for my unbiased review.
