Let me start by saying, this was such a beautiful story from start to finish. I smiled through the entire beginning, I felt light as air and I walked on clouds with these characters. Since 5 years old, Annie and Quint were best friends, childhood sweethearts and stayed together through college. They were destined for a long life together and they would live the perfect life, all dreams coming true. Quint wanted Annie to follow and obtain her dreams and Annie wanted the same for Quint.
Quint has a second love...baseball. He is amazing at it and she knows he will make the big leagues. He wanted her there with him every step of the way. But then...something happens. I was blown away! My heartfelt feeling of love was instantly replaced with extreme emotion... sadness and frustration and even anger...these characters were forced to endure situations that felt so real and so possible. Like this isn't a fairytale, this is life. Will they overcome this? Will they make it? I couldn't put the book down, I needed to know. I cried a few times reading this book. I yelled at the characters a few times too. They had a very supportive family, they had supportive friends but for a while there, they didn't have each other and that absolutely broke my heart.
This was a very well rounded story for me. I laughed, I cried and I laughed some more. I had all of the feelings these characters had and for me, that makes a wonderful story. When the author can make me think about it when I am not reading. Thank you for this story AM Madden, it was beautiful.

If you're looking for a love story that will pull you into the story, hold you captive, and stay with you long after you've finished reading it, this book is it.

Quint and Annie have been together in one way or another since they were little, playing in the sprinklers and having fun being friends. As friends mature, so does their relationship. They share a once in a lifetime love and an unbreakable bond.

But when Quint's worst nightmare becomes a reality, their flawless relationship begins to unravel. Both Quint and Annie have to evaluate what's really important in life, where their loyalties lie, and what they're each made of. The adage "You never know how strong you are, until being strong is your only choice," is so true, and the strength of their love and determination will inspire you.

Get ready to have your heart melted, torn out, stomped on, stitched back together, and made whole again through the perfection that is A.M. Madden's writing style! You'll laugh, swoon, cry, yell, and squirm from the heat rising from the words. The Shortstop is wonderfully written, heartbreakingly beautiful, and soul hauntingly gratifying. Grab this one - you will love it!

I couldn't wait to read this book. A.M. Madden is such a wonderful author. Love this book. This book was about Annie and Quint who are best friends from the age of 5 and turn into boyfriend and girlfriend. Besides Annie, baseball is Quint's true love. These two go to college together. After graduation, Quint hit the minor leagues in hopes of going to the major league. Annie is his biggest fan and decides to put her education aside until her and Quint get settle while Quint plays ball. He is soon scooped up by the Yankees and it's a dream come true for Quint.

After a life altering injury, Quint pushes away the ones that love him the most...his family his friends and his Annie. These two go through a lot and I mean a lot but life finally comes together for them with a wonderful HEA.

Loved this book. It was such a great story. I couldn't put it down.

Hope you enjoy this book as much as I did.

Happy reading!!,

What can I say but WOW. This is the first book I have read from A.M. Madden but it most certainly will not be the last. This book takes you on one incredible journey in the lives of Quint & Annie.
What starts as a friendship from the time they are five right up until they are adults.
Quint & Annie are the perfect couple but life sometimes gets in the way and A.M. Bring you on one hell of an emotional roller coaster that you can actually feel it coming out of the pages.
With every page turn you are brought to the edge of your seat and feel you are living their life right along side of them and cheering them on.
This book can at times be heartbreaking but then their are times that is most simply heartwarming. If you are looking for a book that will have you reaching for the tissues at times and have you smiling and laughing out loud other times this is the book you will definitely do not want to miss.

This was an amazing book. I loved Quint and Annie. This is a different type of read for me because of the fact that they are a couple when the books begins. But I love how it shows the ups and downs of their relationships. I laughed, cried and got mad. I felt the emotions of the characters in this book. It had everything I look for in a book.

I devoured this book in its entirety in one sitting. I could not put it down and it left me satisfied. I admit that I slacked in the sports novel reading, but this book made me want to invest in sport romances again. This book was just the right amount of sports to keep me in the know with baseball terms and teach me a few things. It didn't overwhelm me and make it seem like an instructional book. LoL. I am sidetracking.

On to the story. Quint and Annie. I love their names! The opening of this book gives us a look into Quint and Annie's history. I thought it was so adorable and so fitting. Fast forward to their college years and that is where the book starts off. The dynamic between Quint and Annie is perfect. They are a great team because what one lacks the other has, when one is weak the other is strong. In my opinion, this is a significant feature in their love because they both had their weak and strong moments.

This novel is told in a dual POV from Quint and Annie's perspectives. Quint has always known what he wanted to do and who he wanted by his side. Annie has always known Quint was the only one for her and that together they can weather through anything. She had dreams of her own and was confident she will be able to be by Quin's side and accomplish them all. However, their dreams were more agreeable than what reality had in store for them. What happens when circumstances change and your dreams are no longer possible? When you've burned all your bridges who will you have left?

I am being vague about the plot of the story because I do not want to ruin it. Just know with absolute certainty that you will cry. I know I did! AM Madden has this talent of wrenching your heart out with her emotional writing.
