I may know everything there is to know about baseball, but that doesn’t mean I have to like it. Or like him. Garrett Reeves: sidelined player and the embodiment of everything I’ve learned to hate about baseball. He’s gorgeous, he’s cocky, he’s laser-focused on getting back in the game, no matter the cost.
When he convinces me to call games alongside him, our chemistry heats up the booth. We’re good together, whether I want to admit it or not. I’m finding that I like baseball again, but even worse, I’m liking Garrett. A lot.
But when he has to decide between our future and a new shot at his dreams, I know baseball will win out every time.

After reading Announcing Trouble by Amy Fellner Dominy, I can honestly say that I have yet to dislike a book from Entangled Teen’s Crush imprint! Announcing Trouble is such a great summer read for many reasons.
What I liked:
- The amount of baseball in this book. As an athlete from a young age, I love seeing sports represented in YA. I also loved the whole backstory with Josie’s father, and how as a reader I kind of had to piece all of the history together throughout the novel until the very end.
- The relationship between Josie and Garrett. You could just tell how perfect they were for each other from the very beginning, even though Josie fought against it because of everything she had been through. They worked so well together, whether it was with broadcasting, helping each other out with their future career ideas, or just hanging out.
- GARRETT. I literally loved him to pieces. Honestly, I preferred the chapters that he was in over ones that he wasn’t just because I loved reading parts with his character in it so much. I really felt for him too, with his injury and wanting to come back. It was a very realistic representation of high school/college sports injuries.
- How quick of a read it is! Since it is a contemporary, it is a very quick read. I read it in a matter of a few hours. It’d be perfect if you’re looking for something interesting and engaging but not too heavy!
In my reviews, I usually have a “what I didn’t like” section, but I honestly can’t think of anything for this book! Actually, maybe the fact that it’s standalone? I’d love to hear more from these characters, and maybe even see what life after high school is like for them.
If you’re looking for a great contemporary with engaging and unforgettable characters, then Announcing Trouble by Amy Fellner Dominy is the book for you!
