Meeting Emmett is like nothing I’ve ever felt before. Nor have I wanted to.
Living life out of a suitcase and splashed across social media means no one gets close and that works for me. I plan to keep ticking off my bucket list for as long as I can because that’s what people do when they’re dying.
Not fall in love.
Picking up the pieces after my baseball career sunk like a sinker ball is one thing; falling for someone after losing my wife is another.
I’m back home to help with the farm and raise my nephew, not chase after a girl who never stays in one place, doesn’t know the definition of keeping her life to herself, and is clearly keeping something from me.
But there’s something about Shae, with her pink hair and contagious laugh, something that makes me wonder – why not?
Maybe it’s time to fall in love again.
Now if I can only convince Shae.
