From Goodreads:

He was attractive, talented…and way off limits.
Heather Gadway may have been a world-class college pitcher and a top university coach, but she’s a rank amateur when it comes to managing the Falcons, her father’s struggling minor league team. And when it comes to managing her aggravating attraction to Garrett Wolf, their talented new pitcher. It’s going to be difficult enough to make it as the first female manager in the league and prove to her overly critical father she’s worthy. No distractions. No missteps. And certainly no romances with players. Everything stands between them—including their troubled pasts—even as Heather’s world falls apart and Garrett’s the one who’s there to catch her…

Romance, Baseball, Rivals to Lovers, Contemporary Romance.

My Review:
A League of Her OwnA League of Her Own by Karen Rock

How does the past influence your present? In A League of Her Own Karen Rock brings Heather and Garrett together — two deeply wounded people scarred from their past.

Heather’s father owns a minor league team. When he needs Heather (a former superstar pitcher of her own right and a pitching coach at a college), she drops everything to take over for her dad, managing the boys.
Garrett is a potential star pitcher, but his sketchy past haunts him in the present. For Heather, it’s a reminder of her worst childhood nightmares. Yet, her attraction to Garrett and vise versa is so palatable that it hurts. On so many levels this relationship is wrong. Heather’s Garrett’s boss, he has issues that cut her to the core, and she can’t move past them, even though he’s trying the best he can.

Can they resolve issues from the past and find a way to love and cherish one another?

With baseball as the backdrop, Karen Rock fuels readers attention for America’s pastime and interjects sweet, tender romance appropriate for anyone at any age.

Things I loved about this story:

1. The lesson that our past shouldn’t always influence our present and future.
2. That we’re not all doomed to repeat past mistakes if we work hard to change.
3. That love is the most powerful weapon/gift of all.
4. Sometimes healing the past can be done by helping someone in the present.
5. Personal dreams can change.
6. Appreciate the NOW because in an instant what we know can vanish.
7. What we believe isn’t always the truth, so hear others out.

This is a romance novel for anyone who seeks something deeper and more meaningful, for anyone who has experienced difficulties and has had a hard time moving past them. This is a story of love and ultimately hope. Enjoy!

Thank you to the publisher for the NetGalley copy.
