Welcome, welcome, to my stop on the blog tour for Game On by Michelle Smith! I read Play On at Holly @ The Fox’s Hideaway’s urgent insistence, and I was so glad I did- I fell in love! And so, when Game On was coming out, I was definitely excited- and wondering if I could love Eric’s story just as much as Austin’s. Well, spoiler alert: I liked it even better. How!? I don’t know, magic, I guess. Michelle Smith has to have the magic writing brain, because she got me to love not one, but two stories about a baseball town! I tell you this because if you think “meh, I don’t care about baseball”… neither do I! But I loooove these books. The characters are so incredibly real, and while the stories are awesome, there is a ton of substance to them too.
Anyway, I think I am getting off track! So, Bloomsbury and Michelle were so, so kind when I explained about #ShatteringStigmas (Michelle actually did a post last year that blew me away, and will be on Holly’s blog on Sunday, so make sure you check her out there, too!) and let me do a tour post that works with the event. So what I am saying is, they’re all the best. Now, without further ado… Michelle’s post!

As king of baseball in the small town of Lewis Creek, Eric Perry can have any girl he wants and win every game he plays. But when a fight lands him in jail, he’s only got one more strike before his baseball career is over for good. His only chance for redemption? The girl next door, Bri Johnson.
Bri hasn’t talked to Eric in months— for starters, she’s been too busy dealing with her jerk of an ex-boyfriend, not to mention the fact that Eric’s been preoccupied trying to drink every keg in the country dry. But when he needs a way to stay on the team, she proposes a plan: if he helps her out with community service, he can stay on the team. At first it’s a nightmare—Eric and Bri stopped being friends years ago, surely that was for a good reason, right? But as volunteering turns to bonding over old memories of first kisses under the stars, they start to have trouble remembering what pushed them apart.
In a town as small as Lewis Creek, nothing stays secret for long and their friendship and romance might mean bad news. But in this final, tumultuous spring before graduation, Eric and Bri are about to realize that nobody’s perfect alone, but they might just be perfect together.
