This week’s book:
Title: The Game Can’t Love You Back
Author: Karole Cozzo
Publisher: Swoon Reads
Publication Date: May 15, 2018
Summary (from Goodreads): Eve is used to being the odd woman out. As the only girl on her school’s baseball team, she knows exactly how to put sweaty, macho baseball players in their place, and she’s focused on one thing and one thing only—being the best pitcher she can be.
But when a freak accident forces her high school to be absorbed by the neighboring town, Eve has to contend with a new group of guys who aren’t used to having a woman on their team. And the new team’s star pitcher, Jamie, has no interest in being ousted from his throne. He can’t afford to give up his starting slot to a new pitcher—even worse, to a girl.
As the competition between Jamie and Eve starts to heat up, so does their attraction to each other. Can they keep their heads in the game, or will they end up getting played?
I am beyond excited for Karole Cozzo’s next book! It has been a while since I’ve read about sports, and I love how this one features a female athlete. Eve sounds like such a badass, and I can’t wait to read about how she takes down the boys. I have high hopes for The Game Can’t Love You Back, and I am eagerly awaiting its release this spring.
