Paul Dudley, president of the Plainview Thrashers, is spinning out of control. Preserving his family’s baseball legacy in these tough times takes everything he’s got, and constant clashes with his father have left him struggling for authority over the team and even his own future. So when sports reporter Willow Bourne, a one-night-stand from a year ago, walks back into his life, he knows he can’t give into his feelings for her—no matter how strong they are.
Willow never expected to see Paul again, and she’s got her reasons for keeping her distance. Except the more time she spends around Paul, the harder it is to hide her secrets—or stop herself from falling head over heels.
As the sparks between them fly, Paul discovers what Willow has been concealing from him, leaving him with a difficult choice—keep the team his top priority or make his own legacy by following his heart…
Paul wants to save his family’s legacy, a baseball franchise. But when the chance to save his true legacy arises, Paul must decide what is most important the team or a woman he let get away once and doesn't want it to happen again.
Willow had a one night stand with an unknown man, Paul…leading to a very unexpected surprise. Both Paul and Willow can’t seem to forget the unforgettable night. The couple are reunited a year later in a circumstance that could ruin Willow's chances with her new job. She wants to keep Paul at arm’s length but she has to share a secret she’s held since their one night stand.
It seems like this story is plagued with a series of really bad choices from both Paul and Willow.
Screwball was a cute romantic read. Easy, quick and entertaining, I give Screwball 3.5 stars.
