I'm not really sure what to say about this one. It was overall a really good story. I really enjoyed reading it. This book really answered the question of "can you like a book and hate the main character?
I strongly disliked Holly. She was mean, arrogant, and hated Doan for pretty much no reason. She seemed to think she knew everything. At the very beginning of the book when Holly was driving to her dad's house in Arizona she encounters Doan and a friend Hm. At the very beginning of the book when Holly was driving to her dad's house in Arizona she encounters Doan and a friend racing in their cars on the highway.
Holly brings this incident up no less than 5 times. On page 70, I started counting. So because of Doan and his friend racing one time she now can't stand to be around him. She loathes him. This racing trigger thing is never explained. It's never revealed that Holly had a friend or relative that died in a car accident.
Doan, I really liked. He was a nice guy with obvious demons who was hell bent on befriending Holly why, I have no idea, but we will get to that. So yes, I liked this book. And if it wasn't for the next part of my review I'd have given it 4. I honestly kind of feel like there were some pages left out of the eBook I bought or something. Did I accidentally read the second book in the series first? I had so many questions while reading this book that I started writing them down: 1.
Why is Holly and Justin's dad rich? It's very vaguely implied that he has something to do with baseball, but no one ever comes out and actually says that he's a former MLB player until the last third of the book. Why does Holly think she's entitled to Doan's story upon meeting him? It's very weird to me that she's aggravated that he doesn't want to reveal his personal history to her when he first meets her. I mentioned this before, but the amount of hate she feels for him over the racing incident is inexplicable to me.
Since when is Holly so awesome at baseball that she's asked to play in a summer league for NCAA athletes? That's preposterous. A co-ed NCAA summer league? No way. First of all there's no mention of any other girls on the teams.
Secondly, the players would riot. A bunch of year old college athletes do not want a girl on their team. They want to win. The batting cage scene in the story was beyond explanation to me. I understand that the author wanted to throw Holly and Doan together, but for what reason does a pitcher specifically need to take her to the batting cages to freshen up her hitting skills?
Doan wasn't going to actually pitch to her. But this story totally required that a University of Arizona pitcher take Holly to the batting cages, not just you know anyone with hands that can press buttons. In reality she could have just gone by herself. I'm sure there's a batting cage attendant or something. Where the heck did Natasha go and why is she bad news? That whole deal just kind of went away, huh? Same with the thing about Doan and girls?
On the boat, Allison mentions something about how she's sure Doan will be different with Holly? What the heck did that mean? Never explained. Annnnddddd finnnallllyyyy the big question: 8. What the frack does Holly look like? This is not addressed at all. I don't know how tall she is, what color her eyes are, what color her hair is. I know she's pale. That's it. This made it really, really hard to picture the story so I just imagined a freaking brown haired, brown eyed, every girl.
Aug 31, S. This book, on the whole, is pretty formulaic, with the obligatory complications, uncertainties and teenage angst involved. Even so, I was moderately entertained. To be fair to her, she did move on after a while, but a little while too late. Aug 15, Kate McMurry rated it it was amazing Shelves: new-adult-fiction , contemporary-romance , ya-contemporary-romance , young-adult-contemporary-romance. Or so Holly thought, until her father, a wealthy, pro baseball player, fell in love with another woman and asked her mother for a divorce.
The family split in two, Holly leaving with her mother to live in Pennsylvania, and Justin staying behind with their father in Arizona. During the intervening years, Holly has seen her brother rarely and her father only once, when she attended his wedding to his long-time lover five years ago. Currently, Holly has just graduated high school, and has come to live with her father as a last resort, because her mother has married an Italian count and moved with him to Italy and Holly has no desire to live outside the US.
Justin, her father, and her newly pregnant stepmother all welcome Holly to their home. But Holly feels alienated from all of them, especially her father, whom she has never forgiven for betraying her mother and destroying their family. Just before she arrived at her father's home, Holly had spotted a handsome, reckless young man drag racing in his truck on a public street.
