A broken heart is never an easy one to mend.

Alice spent years forming a new identity while chasing her dreams. A fresh start was just what she needed. When she scores the leading role in a Broadway hit, a new world of possibilities opens up, including singing the National Anthem at the very game her ex was playing.

The biggest mistake of Easton’s life was ending things with Alice before they left for college. No woman has gotten close to him since. Instead, his primary focus is on his baseball career. While warming up before a game, a voice comes over the speakers as the Anthem is sung. A voice that causes something deep to stir inside of him.

Is it possible to rekindle a romance after so much damage was done? This game is bigger than any Easton has ever played. Two hearts are on the line. Either he’ll strike out or slide into home for the win. There’s only one way to find out.
EXCERPT:
“I don’t want to hear any of that nonsense,” she huffs. “If they didn’t think you were perfect for the role, they wouldn’t have cast you.”

“I know,” I relent. “But all of the critiques definitely put a damper on my confidence.” I move the phone from my ear, and put it on speaker. I never know if it’s going to be a long, or short, call, and my hand is already cramping up from holding the phone.

“They just want you to be your very best self. Don’t let it get you down. Use it as fuel to do better.” Her reassurance is exactly what I need to hear. She always knows what to say even when I’m so far from home.

Running my fingertips along the edge of one of the cushions, I reply, “I’ll try. That’s pretty much all I can do.”

“Exactly,” she immediately responds. “Now, turn that frown upside down, and try to get some rest. I’m sure tomorrow will be another hard day.”

“Thanks, Mom.”

“You’re welcome, Dear,” she says softly. “Goodnight. I love you, and I’m proud of you.”

Muttering goodnight, I end the call and set my phone down on the space next to me. As crazy as she drives me sometimes with her constant calls, hearing from her is probably one of bright moments of my day.

Picking up the remote from where I dropped it on the floor, I turn on the television. I don’t even have to change the channel. It’s usually on a sports channel. I’m not obsessed with Easton or anything, I just like to see how he’s doing in the major leagues.

Okay, so I might also like checking out his butt in those tight baseball pants. I can’t help it. It was always one of my favorite things to do at his games when we were in high school. He has a nice booty, and if fills out those pants perfectly.

The sportscaster is talking about Easton while a clip of him tagging someone out on first base plays on the screen. I don’t bother changing into pajamas, or moving to my bed. I shimmy down until I’m lying on the sofa, and grab the blanket that I keep on the end. I fall asleep to Easton Parker’s current stats. There are worse ways to drift off into slumber.

When CL King isn't hard at work writing you can usually catch her reading, baking cookies, dancing to music, or just simply being crazy. She has a huge passion for baseball and the theatre. But her true nerd side comes out when she is doing math for fun. She has an old soul which is evident with her love of the 70s show Emergency. If you want to get on her good side bring her an Ocean Water from Sonic. Even though she tries to focus on one project at a time she always seems to be working on multiple projects at once, it's a good thing that she is highly organized. Just don't take her to a bookstore, you do that and you are likely able to spend hours browsing.
