Hotheaded Tyler Brock has one huge strike against him when he arrives in Raleigh as the Rockets' star first baseman: he owes one hundred hours of community service for starting a bar fight. Lost in a new town with a new team, Tyler can't confide his greatest shame to anyone—he can't read.
When he's assigned to work for Emily Holt, he's in even bigger trouble. Emily is beautiful, uptight, and ready to shed her secret, unwanted virginity. They hit it off, in more ways than one. But when illiterate Tyler shirks his book-bound community service, Emily must hold him accountable.
Can this mismatched pair save each other by sharing their long-held secrets?
