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.

If you love baseball, summery feel good reads, and YA contemporary romances Announing Trouble by Amy Fellner Dominy is for you. It’s a story filled with fun banter, laugh out loud moments, baseball, and dreams.
In Announcing Trouble, the main characters, Josie and Garrett, are high school seniors along with their friends. Josie has a practical future ahead of her post high school, and Garrett is still striving for his dream of playing baseball despite being sidelined due to an injury. The pair comes together for a broadcasting competition after Garrett talks Josie into it.
What I loved most about Announcing Trouble was the fun, hilarious banter between Josie and Garrett. There’s no doubting that this pair have chemistry. Honestly, Josie’s saracasm was so good. I know I wrote some of her quips in my journal. I also loved Josie’s best friend. I think she was a perfect counterpart to Josie.
I really appreciated both of their perspectives regarding their individual, post high school futures. Dominy did a great job at developing both characters and their back stories. It was easy to understand each of their struggles and to cheer for them as they grew and learned together.
If I could have changed anything, I probably would have loved to have read a bit of Garrett’s perspective. While I loved Josie, I just think seeing things from Garrett’s point of view would have been fun. Especially in the beginning, when he was trying to convince Josie to broadcast with him.
So I’d highly recommend checking out Announcing Trouble by Amy Fellner Dominy. It’s absolutely perfect for summer and baseball season. & I hope you’ll love and cheer for Josie and Garrett as much as I did.
