It’s all fun and games until someone catches feelings.

Sophia Wallace is convinced her life is over when her high school cuts the journalism program. Without the elective, she loses her chance to intern with the biggest newspaper company in the county, and why? All because the baseball team needs more funding.

To make matters worse, her boyfriend publicly dumps her at a party, which is mortifying. But the icing on the cake is when the captain of the baseball team and the most popular guy at Bayview High, Walsh Hunter, decides to be chivalrous. He jumps in, throws his arm around Sophia, and declares his undying love for her. In front of everyone.

Suddenly, Sophia is thrown into a world of fake relationships and undercover journalism, and she realizes she’s way, way out of her league.

Good thing she’s got the team captain to teach her how to play.

But faced with choosing between saving her journalism class or her newfound feelings for Walsh, will she strike out or hit a home run?

Time passed as I stood at the door, enough for all thoughts of Scott to be scattered from my mind. So I jumped again when yet another knock came, lunging for the handle, ready to shout. “I swear, I will call the—”

But it wasn’t Scott.

Walsh stood on the other side of the door with his blond eyebrows high up on his forehead. “Nice to see you, too?”

“What are you doing here?” I was ten kinds of disoriented, staring at his figure standing against the fading sky. Did I conjure him from my thoughts? “Why aren’t you at the bay? Aren’t the fireworks starting soon?”

“I didn’t go,” he told me, slipping his hands into the pockets of his shorts.

“What? What do you mean you didn’t go? Where have you been for the past few hours, then?”

Walsh reached a hand out to me, palm up. “I can show you.”

As enticing as his words were, I hesitated, glancing at the picture on the wall as if somehow my parents could see me through it. “I can’t leave the house.”

“Your house,” he said, eyes vivid with energy, “or your yard?”

Uh. “What?”

Walsh grabbed my hand and led me out onto my front porch, then down the two steps. “Close your eyes,” he commanded, his other hand coming around to my other shoulder to guide me. “I promise I won’t let you trip over anything.”


“Shh. Just say ‘yes, Walsh’ and close your eyes.”

I gritted my teeth but relented, swaying as my vision filled with black. “I hate surprises.”

Walsh pressed firmer against my side, his chest touching my shoulder, a smile in his voice. “I think you’ll like this one.”

Grass crunched beneath my bare toes as he moved me along, but I remained a good sport and kept my eyes sealed. Though it was silly, my heart started to beat faster, the anticipation making me nervous. His hands that curved over my shoulders were gentle, the pressure steady, his body close enough behind me that I could practically feel his proximity.

“Relax,” Walsh said, guiding me to a halt. “Your shoulders are so tense. I’m not about to kill you and stuff you in my trunk.”

“Your trunk’s huge. You seriously think you’d have to stuff me into it?”

Walsh was close enough that I could feel him chuckle.

“Can I open my eyes now?”

Walsh hesitated for a moment before he let go entirely. “Yes.”
I’m not usually one to make a playlist for my stories as I write them, but after I finished this story, so many songs stuck out to me. So many songs made me stop and think, “This is so a Sophia and Walsh song!”
