Are thirteen years too long to reconnect with the one that got away?


I never thought I’d see Luke “Voodoo” Kelly again after my parents died when I was fifteen. I was ripped from the only life I knew and thrust into a new one that didn’t involve him.

But thirteen years later, he walks into the bar I’m in with my friends in the last place I thought I’d see him: Somerville.

He looks the same, and he reminds me so much of that boy that I used to know. He’s just as handsome as before and I could still feel our connection.

The only problem? He’s nothing like that boy, and it seems he doesn’t want me in his life anymore.


Audrey Wallace was the one that got away. One day she was there, the next she wasn’t. And no matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t find her.

I never expected to see her in the town I’d just moved to, let alone with my teammates and their partners.

She’s just as gorgeous as I remember, and she acts the exact same.

But I can’t forget what it was like for me after she left, how hard I struggled to claw my way out of my father’s home without her help.

However, no matter how hard I try, I can’t get her from my mind and I realize those feelings from before are still there and stronger than ever.

We have to decide if we can overcome our resentment and fear to get our happy ever after.

The Curveball is book six in A.M. Williams’ Boys of Summer baseball romance series. It’s a second chance, friends-to-lovers romance with a grumpy baseball player and a blast from his past.

If you love men in tight pants and the sassy women they fall for, this series is for you.

Thirteen years ago Aubrey Wallace's life was completely wreaked when a tragic accident and within 24 hours everything had changed when she leaves town and leaves everything behind, but to be able to move on and to cope and get better, Aubrey puts everyone she left behind out of her mind.  


Fast forward 13 years and Aubrey is back in her adoptive town, after being honorable discharged from the military due to type 2 diabetes, only to find the one person she left behind in her small town 13 years before, was now standing in front of her, Luke Kelly. 


I'm going to be totally upfront with you all, I haven't read any of the previous Boys of Summer books, but for me that didn’t seem to matter as the author was really good at introducing the town and the characters to new readers, but I have to say that the book was really enjoyable, relatable and I now plan to start the series from the beginning. 


I give The Curveball 4 stars


A.M. Williams is just a simple girl from the south that found herself living abroad. When she’s not annoying her cat or reading, she’s spending time with her husband and traveling as much as possible. She has a serious case of wanderlust and wants to go as many places as possible while she can. She loves Cheerwine, sweet tea, and North Carolina (eastern style) BBQ as well as those crystal clear waters on the North Carolina coast.
