Paul is a graduate student who works as a tutor for undergraduates and has a strict “no jocks” policy. But when the new softball coach specifically requests Paul to tutor his players, it looks like that policy might be out the window. To make matters worse, the new coach is Trevor, the guy who broke Paul’s heart in high school, the one he has been trying to get over ever since. But Trevor isn’t just interested in Paul’s services for his players–he’s interested in a second chance. And that’s something Paul is just not sure he can give.
Well, this was a bit of a roller coaster ride, and I mean that in the best way possible. I really enjoyed reading this. The characters are complex and real, and the pacing of the story kept me simply gripped to every page. It’s not overly angsty (though, clearly it’s not all bright and shiny happiness, either), but it’s honestly a lighter story than one might initially expect.
This is the second in a series, but it can definitely be read as a stand-alone. I wasn’t huge fan of the first book, so I’m glad that this one was more enjoyable. It has me considering picking up the third installment…
