The hardest lessons are a lot like a line drive to the heart.
Texas Wranglers' ace Matt Roberts had it all: fame, fortune, his dream job. Until one line drive to the head ended it. Well, at least that was the case according to Twitter. Needing time to let his fractured skull heal--along with his psyche--Matt heads home to Del Rio, Texas, with one goal in mind--getting back to baseball. Unfortunately a certain redhead keeps driving him to distraction.
Seventh grade English teacher Jenn McDonnell is not happy that Matt's come home and is staying with his brother--aka her best friend--while his thick skull heals. And she certainly could do without all the questions their group of friends suddenly has, like, "Why do you hate Matt so much?" Yeah, she totally has no desire to answer that one.
Unfortunately for Jenn the questions aren't letting up, and unfortunately for Matt he can't get Jenn off of his mind. Can Jenn put past hurt aside and teach Matt that there's more to life than baseball? Furthermore, can Matt convince Jenn that this relationship isn't doomed to strike out?

Please note I was given an advanced copy of Baseball and Other Lessons by the Author and asked to review it. If Between the Seams, the first book in the Devils Ranch Series, was a homerun then Baseball and Other Lessons is a grand slam. As I stated in my review of Between the Seams I’m not normally a romance reader but I finished Baseball and Other Lessons in 1 sitting. By the end of the first chapter I was hooked. The character development was excellent and Baseball and Other Lessons takes the reader on an emotional roller coaster from sadness to happiness from beginning to end while including enough humor to keep you chuckling throughout the story. The author does a great job of putting the reader in the minds of both Matt and Jenn and letting you feel what they feel. I liked the fact that while it didn’t take over the story there are more baseball scenes in Baseball and Other Lessons than in Between the Seams. If the third book in the Devils Ranch series is as good as the first two it can’t come out soon enough.
