Rachel Darling has been in love with Bastien LeBeau ever since she can remember. Bas sees her as nothing more than his little sister’s tagalong friend. So she decides to give it her last shot and seduce him at the local watering hole, the Salty Dog. Unfortunately, things don’t go as planned and he notices her, but not in a good way and she gets her heart crushed.
Can Rachel move on with her life – a life without Bas?
Bas’s life is just getting settled. After playing professional minor league baseball for a few years, he’s returned to Swan’s Creek, Maine, to figure out what to do with the rest of his life. He finds himself teaching high school history and coaching various teams. A part of him still yearns for the big leagues and he hasn’t quite settled in to life after baseball. When little Rachel Darling shocks him by pulling a trick only his usual bevy of women pulls, he is shocked but lets her down easy. Only, he realizes that maybe he should have held on.
Can he convince Rachel to give him a second shot with him?
