He gave her a heart-shaped baseball necklace and said he would love her forever. And he did.
Finding out her boyfriend had cheated on her, Kate Valencia finished high school, moved away, and became a force to be reckoned with in marketing. Ten years later, she’s shocked to see her ex-boyfriend Joseph walk past the window of a New York coffee shop.
Joseph played professional baseball for the Mariners. But all the fame, sex, and money never closed the hole left in his heart when Katie said goodbye. A chance reunion in New York City unearths all the old emotions, both sweet and bitter.
Kate and Joseph find themselves spiraling toward each other again. But will Kate’s caution and Joseph’s stubborn pride allow them to be together? And, when everything else in their lives seems to be going wrong, will they be able to weather the storm and come out in each other’s arms again?
