Game On (Lewis Creek #2)
by Michelle Smith

As king of baseball in the small town of Lewis Creek, Eric Perry can have any girl he wants and win every game he plays. But when a fight lands him in jail, he’s only got one more strike before his baseball career is over for good. His only chance for redemption? The girl next door, Bri Johnson.

Bri hasn’t talked to Eric in months—for starters, she’s been too busy dealing with her jerk of an ex-boyfriend, not to mention the fact that Eric’s been preoccupied trying to drink every keg in the country dry. But when he needs a way to stay on the team, she proposes a plan: if he helps her out with community service, he can stay on the team. At first it’s a nightmare—Eric and Bri stopped being friends years ago, surely that was for a good reason, right? But as volunteering turns to bonding over old memories of first kisses under the stars, they start to have trouble remembering what pushed them apart.

In a town as small as Lewis Creek, nothing stays secret for long and their friendship and romance might mean bad news. But in this final, tumultuous spring before graduation, Eric and Bri are about to realize that nobody’s perfect alone, but they might just be perfect together.

I am a huge fan of Friday Night Lights and the synopsis of this book gave me Friday Night Lights vibes, so I knew I had to read it. This book really did feel like the baseball version of Friday Night Lights , and I loved that! 

Overall, I liked the plot of this book and I thought it was very addicting. The one main issue I had with the plot had to deal with some of the drama with Bri's ex boyfriend. I thought the drama was necessary and it could have totally been avoided. It was just really frustrating to have the characters deal with this drama instead of doing something like develop relationships more. 

Eric and Bri were really cute together! I thought Bri and Eric had great chemistry and banter. I thought the romance was paced really well, but I wish there would have been more romantic moments between Bri and Eric. I liked the romantic moments, but I felt like I would have enjoyed the book more if there was more romance. 

I liked the character development Eric went through in this book. I thought the author did a great job showing Eric basically rebuilding himself. I easily fell in love with Eric, and I was sad to have to leave him at the end of the book!

This book was a fun and enjoyable read! I would recommend this book to anyone look for a cute and quick read.
