When high school heartthrob and star athlete Cole Jackson breaks Tatum’s heart, she makes a pact with herself to never be hurt again.
She turns love into a game modeled after her family’s favorite pastime: baseball. Anyone brave enough to date her must step up to plate and earn each base by following her rules – or they’re out.
Years later Cole, as handsome and charming as ever, makes an unexpected reappearance in her life with promises that he’s a changed man. He’s got the story to prove it and says he’s willing to follow all of her rules just to have a second chance.
Complicating matters is the strong and steady Airman, Justin Parker, with a heartbreak story of his own. His friendship challenges all she ever knew of loving and being loved.
Will Tatum’s rules help her navigate two very different men, or will she strike out at her own game?

Can everlasting love grow amidst never-ending despair? Best friends Justin and Haylee learn early on that the answer is yes. Their parents would rather spend time drinking and partying than raising children, so the two rely on each other for the care and emotional support they need. Over time, Justin and Haylee become lovers despite the age difference between them. Theirs is a forbidden romance that would destroy them both if discovered. The older of the two, Justin is more than a little rough around the edges. He does everything he can to protect Haylee from as much abuse as possible, but when tragedy strikes there is nothing he can to do keep her from being taken into the foster system. The system meant to save kids threatens to pull the two of them apart. Haylee begs Justin to run away with her, but the powers-that-be force him into an inescapable corner. Blaming Justin for the distance that separates them, Haylee shuts out everything and everyone from her past - including Justin. She tries to forget him. She tries to replace him. But he is always there. So is her own addiction. When it finally gets the best of her, she finds herself utterly alone. She soon discovers what Justin has always known: Their love was worth waiting for.
Strangers on a plane – his blue eyes captured her heart, his kiss haunted her dreams, but her career mattered too much. She let him go with a backward glance, to pursue the opportunity of a lifetime. She didn’t even get his name, but she couldn’t get him out of her mind.
Years later, they find each other on an international flight. This time the handsome stranger won’t let Jordan go without his name or her number in his phone… and one more amazing kiss to keep her smiling until they meet again.
She is his high-class, gypsy wanderer. He is the strong, blue-collar soul her heart calls home. They marry in Vegas on a whim, in a moment of irresponsibility and pent-up passion. Jordan’s determination to succeed at work drives her to a decision she keeps from her husband. Their new-found love is strong, but her secret pulls them apart.
She knows she needs to tell him – she doesn’t know if he will ever forgive her. Will he stay or will the love of her life leave once he knows the truth behind the tension? Can their love overcome the odds stacked against them?
The Road Not Taken
By Robert Frost
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the better claim, Because it was grassy and wanted wear; Though as for that the passing there Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh Somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference. .
