Publisher's Summary

Amberlyn didn’t realize her boyfriend was spending more time with her best friend than with her. Betrayed and publicly humiliated, she needed a box of tissues and a shoulder to cry on.

Aiden was happy to supply them. Having a crush on Amberlyn for years, he was secretly glad her boyfriend had dumped her. He may even have participated in the events that caused the breakup. But he couldn’t focus on that when he needed to train for the upcoming baseball season.

With Amberlyn still crying over her ex-boyfriend, scouts vying for Aiden’s attention, and betrayals coming out of left field, they have so many strikes against them, they may never hit a home run.

Enjoyed Story & Narration

Amberlyn the breakup and betrayal are hard for anyone especially when the two had been close to her. How it is handled was well done by her. Life was busy for Aiden, and wanted to be there for her, his future and choices were now. Love and forgiveness was well brought out, as well as a lasting love. The narration was great and drew one into the story. Well done and enjoyed.

Overlapping

I really enjoyed how this book starts off in the previous book and overlaps a bunch and we get more perspectives. A lot of on and off and "misunderstandings," but I really enjoyed it.

Cute YA Sports book

I love that this book takes place during the same time frame as Pass Me the Ball since the storylines and characters overlap. Then timing was great. I fell in love with Aiden and wanted Amberlyn to get her HEA.

Throughout the book I really didn’t care for Amberlyn’s character she isn’t a very decisive heroine but Aiden definitely saved this book for me.

The narration was done well. Very easy to follow.

Young love

This is the fifth book in this series. All related to athletes and young love. Each book is a fairly lighthearted sweet romance.
In this book a few more serious issues were brought up such as teenage pregnancy. The main couple discussed waiting for intimacy and respecting each other. The other couple’s pregnancy was used somewhat as an example of what can happen if teenage hormones aren’t kept in check.

Cute YA coming of age story

This is a sweet YA story. High school can be a tough time. The kids in this story deal with a lot of real issues and yet keep there heads straight. I think this book would be a great read for those in similar situations and anyone that likes a YA story.

Enjoyable YA romance

Julie Spencer writes fun, entertaining YA romances with such mature characters that sometimes I forget I’m reading YA. Her choice in narrators is great and Abigail Carson brings her stories to life. Great story for teens and adults.

Great story that ties in the others in the series

After Amberlyn's boyfriend dumps her in a very public way for her best friend, she's left trying to figure out her heart. Was she ever really in love?

Aiden's been watching from the sidelines for years, crushing on Amberlyn, but afraid he'd never get a chance with her.

Now their time has come. But can he convince her that he's right for her? You'll have to read to find out.

I did enjoy how the storylines from the first three books all were tied together in this one. But I also found it a bit unbelievable to have so many young people (seniors in high school) engaged at the end of the story.

There were also technical issues with the sound in a few places, so I would give the performance a 3.5, but rounded up to 4.

Fun, very enjoyable listen

This was a fun story! While it is about high schoolers, I was still able to relate to the characters. I thought the author did a good job of developing the characters and keeping the story real.

The narration was well done.

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author and I'm voluntarily leaving this review.

Cute story, but...

Ever since I finished "Pass Me the Ball" I wanted to read this one since Amberlyn seemed like an interesting character towards the end of the previous one, plus I also wanted to know how things happened from her POV. Yes, there's a crossover in the timeline from book #3 so it helped having already read it. Of course, with this being a series, there are some other characters that other readers can be happy to see again, but for me, it was just kind of confusing whenever Amberlyn and/or Aiden were in a group. Still, their story is cute and I liked how committed they grow to be to each other once they pass their first obstacle. The baseball references were fine, and even though we get to see a lot of training from Aiden's side, there's only one baseball game.

The narrator was really good with the nuances: whispers, squeaks, some shouts, as well as portraying feelings like shyness, excitement, anger, and so on. However, while her Amberlyn voice was nice and soft, I couldn't differentiate it from Aiden's, thus creating a kind of confusing listening experience (I had to pay close attention to the beginning of the chapter to know who was speaking).

Overall, a nice, sweet story about HS love, perfect for fans of the author, this series, or the YA genre. ~ 3.75 stars

Content:
Sex: none between the MCs but here's mention that another couple did and is currently expecting. There's talk between the MCs about their physical (read sexual) attraction, but they're both committed to not doing it (at least before graduation if not before marriage). Still, the girl teases her boyfriend about his herculean self-control sometimes. There are descriptions of passionate kisses/making out, but no mention of certain body parts or hands straying over there. Also, there's a comment where a girl thinks his boyfriend is gay because he never made a move on or made out with her. There's also another comment from a different girl about satisfying a guy's needs.

Great sweet romance.

Well written YA romance. Although there are links to the other books in the series it can be read as a standalone.
There were times I cringed, then remembered the target audience, and the characters were acting exactly age appropriate.
Well worth a listen if you like ya romances.
