Peek Inside Whatever Life Throws At You

Sometimes you throw the heat. Sometimes you just feel it…

Seventeen-year-old Annie Lucas’s life is completely upended the moment her dad returns to the major leagues as the new pitching coach for the Kansas City Royals. Now she’s living in Missouri (too cold), attending an all-girls school (no boys), and navigating the strange world of professional sports. But Annie has dreams of her own—most of which involve placing first at every track meet…and one starring the Royals’ super-hot rookie pitcher.

But nineteen-year-old Jason Brody is completely, utterly, and totally off-limits. Besides, her dad would kill them both several times over. Not to mention Brody has something of a past, and his fan club is filled with C-cupped models, not smart-mouthed high school “brats” who can run the pants off every player on the team. Annie has enough on her plate without taking their friendship to the next level. The last thing she should be doing is falling in love.

But baseball isn’t just a game. It’s life. And sometimes, it can break your heart…


“Julie Cross’ writing is so addictive that you will be instantly hooked. I fell in love with Jason Brody!”—Amanda Pedulla of Stuck in YA Books

“Julie Cross once again delivers with this swoon-worthy, laugh-out-romance between a sexy rookie baseball player and the new coach’s daughter.”—Yara Santos of Once Upon a Twilight

Whatever Life Throws at You is a perfect story about growing up and the hardships you’ll uncover no matter what profession you choose. It’s filled with laughs, heartbreaks, tears, suspense, and plenty of romance.”—Jessica Reigle of Step Into Fiction

This book makes me want to read more sports romance books. It's a Young-Adult-slash-New-Adult read that is all kinds of cute and adorable. I enjoyed every bit of it not just because everything was swoony but because the book also depicts life lessons and narrates a touching family drama tha...
