Dare to Kiss by S.B. Alexander


Like most 17-year-old girls, Lacey Robinson loves her family. What makes her unique is her unmatched talent for baseball. With an unhittable fastball and a killer slider, it's no wonder Arizona State University wants to talk about a scholarship for its boys' team. She's living out her dream, until life throws a nasty and deadly curveball.

When she loses her mother and sister to a home invasion, baseball and her dreams die with them. Stricken with nightmares, panic attacks, and even blackouts, Lacey is diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Upon recommendation from her psychiatrist, the former baseball phenom moves across the country and tries to pick up the pieces from her life.

Now, only two things matter to Lacey–overcoming her PTSD and making the Kensington High baseball team. She never expected to meet the tall, sexy, and drool-worthy Kade Maxwell. His magical touch awakens her feminine side, and his kiss erases her nightmares. As her symptoms start to fade, her sports dream takes a turn for the worse when baseball captain Aaron Seever tries everything he can to keep her off the team.

But the baseball captain isn’t her only roadblock. When Kade's arch-nemesis returns to town to settle an old score, Lacey's PTSD comes back with a vengeance. She'll need to learn how to push her demons away or she'll lose everything good she has left.

“A heart-melting, swoon-worthy, emotional read that leaves you aching for the next book by this author.” Cara Nicole (NetGalley Reviewer)
