All it took was one look for Holt to want Harmony, even though all she did was give him and his baseball teammates a tough time at the diner she waitresses at. But, his persistence pays off, and, after quite a few attempts at asking her out, Harmony finally tells Holt yes.
It isn’t all smooth sailing however, as fate sometimes goes in directions you are not prepared for. Are Holt and Harmony truly meant to be, or is it young love not meant to go the distance? Can they both learn to depend on each other rather than depending on themselves . . . sharing everything rather than shielding the other in the name of “protecting” when a partnership is truly what they both need?
Holy Moly . . . . Holt! Good grief this man was persistent! And charming, and suave and so sincere! He seems so much older and more mature than a college junior, perhaps because he has already had a second chance at living after a mugging almost ended his life. He really is that sweet and that funny and that caring. But, he isn’t perfect and he needs to realize more than anyone that sharing a problem can be better than hiding it from your partner and friends.
I adored Harmony too. Having been burned in the past, I loved that she made Holt work for a date and a relationship. But, she also needs to get the chip off of her shoulder and understand that someone offering help isn’t the same as someone feeling bad for you and offering “charity.”
This young couple had a lot thrown at them, and I loved watching them work through it and find their way into the magical Brentwood Baseball locker room securing their happy ever after. 5 stars

It started with one night out with the boys.
She was the hot diner waitress putting herself through school.
I was the rich, arrogant player everyone misjudges.
On paper we didn’t match.
Yet all it took was one day. One single day to change her mind.
She wasn’t planning to spend her day off with me.
She wasn’t supposed to fall for my charm.
But one day, one smile, turned into several nights of her calling out my name.
I’m not the guy she should end up with. I’m jealous, possessive. Not here for a long time – just a good time.
She’s changed me.
But, for some reason, I feel her slipping through my fingers and no matter what I do, I fear I’m going to strike out with the one and only girl I’ve ever fallen for.
