Once a Mets draft pick, Arlington Aces outfielder Giovanni Caceres never thought he'd be stuck playing in an independent league in small-town Pennsylvania. If he works hard and steers clear of trouble, he has a good shot of making it back to the majors. Until the team owner recruits him to give her niece hitting lessons and her repressed sister dance lessons...
Helen Anne Reed is being pulled in a million different directions, dealing with a struggling bookstore, her father's Alzheimer's, a controlling ex-husband, PTA madness, and now her daughter Macy's desire to play baseball with the boys. Helen Anne is far more comfortable with pearls and aprons than cleats and gloves, but then sexy ballroom dancer-turned-baller Giovanni unexpectedly comes to her rescue.
When he reluctantly agrees to be Helen Anne's dance partner for a school fundraising event, things heat up quickly between them, much to their surprise. Amid salsa lessons and ballpark bonding, can this vibrant charmer teach Helen Anne how to quit worrying and just let go? Or will Giovanni's big league dreams bench this relationship before it even begins?
