I liked Willow and Paul and was definitely invested to see what happened in their story. However, I have a limited amount of patience for problems that are created because characters refuse to communicate openly and honestly. There were times in this story that I wanted to pull my hair out. I wanted to grab both of these characters, shake them and yell, "Just tell him/her the truth! Talk about your issues. End this discomfort!" I wouldn't consider it angst, but it's definitely tension filled.
The times that Paul and Willow were together, sharing, getting to know one another and collaborating were really really good. I had butterflies and Paul said some of the sweetest things. (He's a really good man.) I wish there had been a few more of those times and less communication-induced confusion.
I liked the backdrop of the baseball setting. The scenes and scenarios were interesting and entertaining. I enjoyed the main characters and the supporting characters as well. If you're looking for a sports-themed, quick read, with interesting characters and some good tension, I can recommend Screwball.

Willow has gotten a job blogging for a sports website and her first assignment is to write an in-depth profile of the Plainview Thrashers. When she arrives in Plainview and meets the team president, she learns that he is Paul Dudley - her Paul.
She doesn't know how to tell him that he is the father of her four-month-old son Jack and so neglects to mention that he is the father of her baby. Paul has enough problems without that. The ball club is owned by his father who has control of the finances and he is a real cheapskate. Paul has the job of running the team but doesn't have control of the money. He knows the team would draw better if he could put some money into the neglected stadium and field but he can't do anything with his father's micro-management.
Paul has had years of dealing with a father who put the baseball team ahead of family. He was a distant and neglectful parent who left his wife do the hands-on parenting. When she died of a heart attack when Paul was sixteen, his father had to fill in but had no idea how.
Paul and Willow have enough to deal with getting to know each other while deciding what do about their son without the bad tempered intrusions of Paul's father who has characterized Willow as a bimbo and a slut.
Willow tries to be fair but honest about the problems on the team in the profile she writes but she can't help but talk about the management problems caused by Paul's father. For Paul, who has been hiding the problems for years out of family loyalty, this honesty seems like a betrayal.
It takes time and work for Paul and Willow to find their way to a happy ending.
*I received my copy through NetGalley.com in exchnage for an honest review.
After one spontaneous night Paul Dudley can't get Willow out of his head. Unfortunately he didn't know her last name or how to find her so he left West Palm Beach at the end of spring training. Never did he expect the sports blogger that walked through his office door to be her!! No matter how hard they, ignoring the sparks that fly between them is impossible. Paul knows though there is something she's not telling him, is he ready to find out what that is????
A very enjoyable book that I definitely recommend.
