Tony Stevens is one of my favorite authors on SOL. I don't review a lot of his stories because it sounds like he's my favorite brother/cousin or I'm getting a cut of the action.
When I first started this story I was distressed that his main character was actually groveling for a date. Then I remembered that Tony is very good at what he does. I hung with it.
Here we have a story of baseball, like that is a surprise. We have a story of love blooming and consummating in a very enjoyable way. The sex is not explicit and doesn't have to be with the way Tony writes.
Freddie works hard at his craft and is redirected when a coach steers him in a totally different direction but allows him to stay with a game and career he loves. The love interest is just as focused not only on his career but hers too. Follow along as Freddie changes directions, remakes himself and achieves success and he gets the girl too!
