Whatever Life Throws at You by Julie Cross
Publication Date: October 7th 2014
Publisher: Entangled Teen

From Goodreads:

Seventeen-year-old Annie Lucas is too young to remember her dad’s glory days as a pitcher for the Yankees. So when her father is offered a coaching position with the Kansas City Royals, Annie is intrigued to see the baseball side of her dad. Of course, knowing he’ll be a mentor to hot young rookie pitcher, Jason Brody, certainly makes it more enticing.

After an awkward first meeting with “Brody” involving very little clothing and a much-too-personal locker room interview, Annie’s convinced she knows Brody’s type: arrogant, self-involved, bossy. As her dad grows closer to the pitching phenom, the friction between Brody and Annie increases. But when opening day arrives and it looks like both her dad and Brody may lose their dream jobs, Annie steps up and offers support. She and Brody call a truce that grows into friendship—and beyond. Falling for a rising star who’s quickly reaching a level that involves rabid female fans is not what Annie would call smart, except suddenly she’s getting hints that maybe this crush isn’t one-sided after all. Could someone like Brody actually fall for a girl like her?

Why I Can’t Wait: I love when a friendship or romance starts off with the characters being less than friendly and then watching it blossom into something more. I’m also interested to see how the main character’s relationship with her father is portrayed. I love a great family dynamic as well. Looking forward to checking this one out!

    I haven’t heard of this one before. I love the baseball spin, and it sounds like a sweet read. I’m going to add it to my TBR list. Thanks so much for sharing this week. Have a great weekend, and happy reading! My WoW

    I haven’t paid much attention to this one very much until now, but I may have to read this one! Romances that start off with the two not getting along is my favorite kind. :)
