Leigh Mahoney wasn't expecting to meet someone while trying to create a career for herself after college and run from experiences she'd rather not remember, but Anthony Rizzo has other plans. 

A chance meeting that involves him vaulting over a barrier into a press box full of cameras and tackling Leigh is the beginning of their friendship that grows into something new and romantic.

Between classes, an internship, and a job at a BBQ, Leigh has little time to spend building a life with Anthony, the professional baseball star. Anthony, however, sees something in Leigh that endears her to him almost instantly and he'll do whatever it takes to keep her invested in their relationship. While opportunities pull her further away from Chicago, he is caught between wanting her close to wanting her to be successful in her pursuit of her dreams.

I'm a base and let me tell you there is nothing worse that having a 80+ pound girl fall directly on your nose, cause the supporting base and back spot were not paying attention and didn't grab the foot in the right count. I fractured my nose and it hurt so bad!... But I'm all good now😂

Easily one of my favorite books just based on the first chapter, and I swear I'm not bullshitting you.

So far this is pretty good! I was a little scared because typically the Chicago Cub's stories on here are a little unreal, but this one could totally happen in real life!
