From Goodreads:
Red-hot author Miranda Kenneally hits one out of the park in this return to Catching Jordan's Hundred Oaks High.  Parker Shelton pretty much has the perfect life. She’s on her way to becoming valedictorian at Hundred Oaks High, she’s made the all-star softball team, and she has plenty of friends. Then her mother’s scandal rocks their small town and suddenly no one will talk to her.  Now Parker wants a new life.

So she quits softball. Drops twenty pounds. And she figures why kiss one guy when she can kiss three? Or four. Why limit herself to high school boys when the majorly cute new baseball coach seems especially flirty?  But how far is too far before she loses herself completely?


Mrs. Beamer's Review:
First, let me remind you I'm a HUGE fan of Catching Jordan  And this book is just as good.  That being said...it was very, very similar to Catching Jordan.  In other words, whatever book you read FIRST will be your favorite :)  I didn't enjoy Parker as much as I enjoyed Jordan...but I did enjoy the male characters just as much.   This is a quick, fun read.  Enjoy it for what it is!


My Favorite Quote (from this book):  "He looks like a Geek Squad sexpot."
