As king of baseball in the small town of Lewis Creek, Eric Perry can have any girl he wants and win every game he plays. But when a fight lands him in jail, he's only got one more strike before his baseball career is over for good. His only chance for redemption? The girl next door, Bri Johnson.
Bri hasn't talked to Eric in months- for starters, she's been too busy dealing with her jerk of an ex-boyfriend, not to mention the fact that Eric's been preoccupied trying to drink every keg in the country dry. But when he needs a way to stay on the team, she proposes a plan: if he helps her out with community service, he can stay on the team. At first it's a nightmare-Eric and Bri stopped being friends years ago, surely that was for a good reason, right? But as volunteering turns to bonding over old memories of first kisses under the stars, they start to have trouble remembering what pushed them apart.
In a town as small as Lewis Creek, nothing stays secret for long and their friendship and romance might mean bad news. But in this final, tumultuous spring before graduation, Eric and Bri are about to realize that nobody's perfect alone, but they might just be perfect together.

Very good story I really enjoyed it!
3.5 stars I really enjoyed the previous book in this series, so I was pretty excited for this one. I really liked Bri and Eric. They are both good people and I enjoyed being in their heads. They had some great banter and playfulness between them, but I would have liked to see more kissing. I think they deserved it. I wasn't a fan of the situation with the ex boyfriend. There was a lot a lot a lot of drama and stalking and unnecessary behavior that happened. If someone is calling and texting you at all hours of the night, block them. And if they're threatening to get your scholarship taken away, tell someone. Don't turn your phone off. Overall, it was a cute and quick read. I would have liked a more cement ending, but for these two it worked perfectly. **Huge thanks to Bloomsbury Spark and NetGalley for providing the arc in exchange for an honest review**
