From the Author

Garrett's grumbling teammates filed out of the pre-game meeting, followed by the coaches and Heather's father. Garrett, however, remained in his seat, watching the lithe young woman as she stood by the door.

At last she turned to him.

"We meet again. Garrett, right?"

He stood and strode to the door. When he stopped, her eyes widened, caution swimming in their depths.

"You mentioned having individual meetings," he said, keeping his voice even, hiding the irritation shimmering through him. "I thought we'd have ours now."

She blinked up at him, and her lips moved. Though he strained to hear, he couldn't make out what she'd said.

"I'm sorry, I didn't catch that."

A bright pink suffused her cheeks, and he forced himself not to notice how pretty the color made her.

"I said that I haven't finished my notes for you yet. I'll watch you pitch tomorrow. We'll meet after that."

He had to give it to her. Soft-spoken or not, she had a direct way about her. He didn't doubt that she could lead...just not professional baseball players. "That's what I wanted to talk to you about. I'm requesting to be released from my contract. This isn't the right place for me to advance in my career."

Her mobile face stilled. "And why would that be?"

"Look, I'll be blunt." He tapped his fingers on the sides of his legs. "This team isn't hustling, and it'll be a long time before they come around to supporting you. Things will get worse instead of better. I have a limited window of opportunity to advance. Given these factors, my bottom-line pitching won't look good with a losing team behind me. I'd like to help you, but selfishly, this is my last shot."

A speculative gleam entered her eyes. "So you're asking to be released because you think I can't help you reach your goals."

A long breath rushed out of him. She was going to be reasonable. "That'd be great. Thank you."

She arched an eyebrow. "You're wrong, and I'll be as frank with you as you were with me."

His relief turned to irritation. So she wasn't going to make this easy. He held his tongue and waited to hear her out.

"I think you're overvaluing yourself." She nodded when his mouth dropped open. Guys talked this way to each other. Not women...especially not pretty women...to him.

"Your control isn't where it should be, and if that's not addressed, you'll also be another reason why this team isn't doing well. But you have potential, and I can help you."

"Right," he scoffed. What could a softball pitcher do for him? "No offense, but I need someone with more experience."

She tapped her chin and angled her head, her eyes flashing up at him. "If I can change your mind about that, will you drop your request and give me your support and a hundred percent effort?"

He held in a laugh. Was she for real? There wasn't a chance she could change his decision. "What do you have in mind?"

She stepped closer, and her subtle citrus scent curled beneath his nose.

"A contest. If I get more strikes out of twenty pitches than you do, you stay. If you have more, then I'll release you."

He stared at her. Processing. She couldn't be serious. Sure, he had control issues, but he was still better than a college-level player. She was making this easy. But if she was foolish enough to offer him this out, he'd take it.

They eyed each other for a long, tense moment before he jerked his chin at her.
"You're on."

So cute!! I loved this sweet clean romance by Karen Rock.

Kayleigh and Niall have been longtime friends but it's been a long time since they've seen each other. After returning from Afghanistan injured Niall has become a recluse and refuses to see anyone including Kayleigh. Kayleigh's trying to make it on her own after losing her fiance and since he was her boss she's also lost her job. When she comes up with a new idea for a "compatibility" software app she needs all the help she can get and Niall is the perfect match for what she needs.

I loved side stories that were woven into this story. The character's from the assisted living facility added the needed touch of humor. I enjoyed Niall and Kayleigh helping Josh learn to deal with his hurt and anger which in turn helped Niall overcome what he was struggling with.

Another friends to lovers story that was a hit with me.

Rating: 5 Stars - I loved it!

This was my first book from Karen Rock. I now have a new author to follow. I really enjoyed reading this story about Niall and Kayleigh. They were realistic and interesting characters. They had a history in their past but reconnected and were able to make their relationship mature and grow. In addition, they were both growing and helping each other. I also loved the senior citizens in the story. They were a lot of fun and pretty spunky. I look forward to reading more of Karen Rock's books, and I would recommend this to others who enjoy good, clean books. The language is clean and there are no steamy situations. I rate this as 4 1/2 stars rounding up to 5.

This was precious. Two people one disillusioned and not trusting due to betrayal by those close to her. the other disillusioned and guilt ridden due to events beyond his control. they were childhood friends in need of each other but not wanting to reach out after drifting apart. So fate steps in and forces them to meet.

At first Niall acts distant. Why? Guilt that he shouldn’t have but does. He wants to protect Kayleigh and not let her get hurt by him or anyone but that doesn’t quite cut it for her. Kayleigh forges forward invading Niall’s thoughts even after he was a total jerk to her. Once he takes her idea in mind, he comes on board with her in making a software app to help find love. Except for these two love was right in front of them just both to scared to take it by the horns and run with it.

As they go through the rigamaroll of working together, they get close and lines do blur. With niall you see a kind and understanding man who has lost his way due to anger and guilt. Kayleigh is helping him to live again. To unfold and become who he once was a vibrant smiling kind man who lived life. Kayleigh has Niall show her how to live and become her own person. He encourages her and trusts her. Sometimes she takes advantage of this but he is steadfast and never strays.

As we watch this sweet relationship unfold we meet some fun characters at the nursing home who surprisingly are the heroes of this story. they will crack you up with their interactions. We also see the seedy characters the ones that get your rankles up and want you to slap them upside the head. These are the ones that push Kayleigh and Niall to succeed and show them that there is more to life and business that shady ways.

Karen Rock's romance, Someone Like You, deals with sensitive issues such as post-war trauma and the loss of loved ones with understanding and knowledge, shedding light on these topics, and even offering solutions. Her excellent writing style paints pictures, not only of scenes, but also of Kayleigh's and Niall's thoughts and feelings as they reach crossroads in their lives.

When her fiance cheats on her, Kayleigh Renshaw is determined to build a new life and career, but Brett, who is also her boss, refuses to let that happen. Turned down for ten jobs, Kayleigh considers seeking help from an old friend who has connections, but Niall Walsh has changed since returning from Afghanistan. Experiencing the terrors of battle and losing the lower portion of one leg, Niall has become a recluse, and he works from his computer in his apartment. Kayleigh is desperate, however, and decides to meet with Niall, hoping to find a new career-- and her friend.

During their awkward lunch, Kayleigh realizes almost immediately that his emotions have retreated into a cave but, remembering their close friendship and how they helped each other through trying times, she asks Niall to work with her on an app which will help those looking for love to find the right relationships. One of her goals in starting High Dive Enterprises is to help her brother's family with their finances, since he perished in Afghanistan two years earlier.

Kayleigh tirelessly pursues her business dream, but just as she seems to be closing in on success, the unthinkable happens. Her team works diligently to overcome obstacles as Niall struggles to pull out of his hermit-like state, but he holds a secret which could send his life-- and Kayleigh's--into a tailspin.
