Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week I am waiting on
Game on (Lewis Creek #2) by Michelle Smith
Publication Date: August 16th 2016
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.
I am currently obsessed with Contemporary sport romances. I’m not a sporty person but I definitely appreciate the athleticism and skill that comes with any sport. I loved the first book in this series, Play On, and I love that we’ll be visiting Lewis Creek again. Eric didn’t have much of a presence in the first book but the moments we did get with him were intriguing. I can’t wait to see what this story has in store for us and if we happen to get the chance to check in with Marisa, Austin, Brett and Jay then I will be over the moon.
Side Note: I have little to no knowledge on baseball but after reading these books I’ve been dying to go to a baseball game!!
What’s your most anticipated book?
