Publisher: Entangled TEEN Crush
Outfielder Tristan Murrell has a problem. As the number two slugger for the Suttonville Sentinels, his team is counting on him to make their very first run at the state championship. But he has a secret—his swing has totally deserted him. As in, he can’t hit anything. He needs to fix the issue, and fast, but how?
Ballerina Alyssa Kaplan has a problem, too. The shiny new sports complex in town has left her family’s batting cage business on the verge of going under. Nailing her audition for a prestigious dance company is everything, but there’s no way she’s letting her some shiny big-box company destroy her family’s livelihood.
Tristan needs a miracle. So does Alyssa. And maybe, just maybe, Tristan’s secret weapon might be the girl of his dreams…
Disclaimer: This book contains hot, shirtless baseball players, kisses that bring a ballerina to her knees, and a lot of baseball smack-talk.
OTHER BOOKS IN THE SERIES
Baseball player Kyle Sawyer has many labels: bad boy, delinquent, ladies’ man, fearless outfielder… Only one of them is actually true. But then sweet ballet dancer Faith Gladwell asks him to help wreck her reputation, and everything goes sideways.
Faith knows a thing or two about love, and what she had with her cheating jerk of an ex wasn’t it. When he starts spreading rumors about her being an Ice Queen, Faith decides it’s time to let a little bad into her life.
Lucky for her, Kyle Sawyer—dark, dangerous, totally swoonworthy Kyle Sawyer—is landscaping her backyard over Spring Break. Shirtless. And if she can convince him to play along, “dating” Kyle will silence the rumors.
But Faith’s plan threatens to expose Sawyer’s biggest secret of all…and that’s a risk he’s not willing to take.
Disclaimer: This book contains drop-the-book-and-fan-yourself kisses…and touches. Fall in love with a bad boy at your own risk.

So, a picture of my desk… ::hurries to tidy up:: Okay! Here’s where I work (sans mess). When I’m writing, I typically have certain set of things on my desk. First, pens and scratch paper, in case I need to doodle or figure out a timeline. Second, there’s my trusty copy of Save the Cat for plot-work, which is a must have for novelists and screenwriters. Next to it, the tea mug Entangled gave me when my first book was published with them. Finally, my laptop, and, of course, a bowl of dark chocolate M&Ms. The M&Ms are not negotiable—that’s my fuel for a good afternoon or writing. My laptop wallpaper comes from one of my favorite comic series—Calvin and Hobbes. I wanted something whimsical, so if I was ever stuck, I could minimize all my windows and look at it until inspiration struck.
What you don’t see are my headphones (I’m wearing them) or my phone (taking the picture). I listen to music almost constantly when writing at home. One, to help set the scene. Two, I have teenagers…my house isn’t a quiet place. J
So, there you have it—my desk!
