The sound of the gavel crashing down,
Has my life flashing before my eyes.
Learning to play ball.
Falling in love,
Marrying an incredible woman and starting a family
Becoming a starting pitcher for the Indianapolis Lightning.
Everything I ever wanted... Until I struck out.
The same success that gave me the life I dreamed of,
Took it all away.
I'd do anything for a second chance,
Even throw the perfect pitch.
A signature on a piece of paper...
It binds you to someone, or it can tear them away.
It broke my heart to file the papers.
Gutted me to sign them.
But this isn't the life I envisioned.
Tired of competing to be his number one priority,
I had to walk away from the man I loved.
I needed to be strong for our girls, for me.
Life goes on.
People can change.
Now he wants a second chance.
But can I forgive the man who threw it all away, and trust that he won’t do it again?
The Perfect Pitch is a stand-alone Baseball story, while the Baseball side is light it ticked all the boxes on the romantic side of things.
Derek had it all, the amazing wife, 2 kids and the career of his dreams; for the past several years he has been indulging when he shouldn’t and falling down on the husband and father duties. With the wake-up call that he needs Derek is set to win back his family even if that means giving up his career.
Jillian didn’t want to go through with it but she had to, she needed to be strong for her girls. When Derek starts doing all the right things can she trust it or when the season starts again will he fall back into bad habits?
I personally really enjoyed this 2nd chance story; Lind is a new me author and I can’t wait to get my hands on more of her work.
