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.

Slow burn, sports romance with heart!

A true sports romance, but filled with so much more. This slow burn love story had heart, but there was also a great immersion into the baseball life. I liked that there was a balance and the story wasn’t solely centered around either.

Luke ‘Single’ Singleton was my favorite, because he wasn’t your typical romance hero. There was no cockiness, no player lifestyle, no asshole alpha personality. Physically, he’s shorter than most with no Adonis muscles to speak of. He’s a good ol’ fashion good guy. Luke’s a good baseball player trying to come back from a serious injury and debilitating moment in his career that almost cost him his life. As he attempts to return, he’s considered the underdog.
Luke’s mother is his everything. He even puts her before his baseball career despite loving being on that field. Unfortunately, as her Alzheimer’s worsens, it becomes impossible for him to take care of her by himself, despite his determination. The stress of it continues to pile on, and keeps him from concentrating on the game.

Enter Roberta who he hires as his mother’s caregiver. What appealed to me the most was how fluidly they built up their relationship. They took their time getting to know each other, and chose not to rush into anything despite their blaring feelings.
There are a lot of other subplots and happenings that were incorporated, but they never overwhelmed the overall story.
Going into this, I had no clue it was a spin-off. That being said, I don’t think my not reading the other series hindered my reading experience of this book. Though it might have improved it.
