Whatever Life Throws At You by Julie Cross Review!

Life loves a good curveball…

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…

This story had me captivated from the very first page. It is an incredible standalone with a HEA. This is my first book by Julie Cross; however, after this book, it definitely won't be the last.

“Pressure is just that—pressure. It’s all in your head. It has nothing to do with what you can or can’t do.” 

Annie Lucas is a 17 year old with aspirations to have a career on the track. Out of the blue, one day her dad gets a phone call and is offered the job of a lifetime. He is offered to be a pitching coach for the Kansas City Royals Baseball team. It is because of this that they then move away from their "home" and begin a life in a new place. In Kansas Annie runs into Jason Brody.

“Kansas City, that’s like in Kansas, right?” I ask. “Missouri,” Frank and Dad both correct.” 

Jason Brody, the next big thing in baseball. A 19 year old who dropped out of high school is now living the life many only dream of having. With him being 19 of course he is drawn to Annie. The only problem, she's the coaches daughter and underage. You can't help love though and these two are quickly developing feelings for each other.

“He said if I was good enough to throw a perfect game, I’d be good enough to date his daughter.”

I absolutely loved this novel. Everything about it captivated and drew me in from the start until the very last page. I definitely recommend reading this book to anyone in the mood for a light, yet compelling read.
