༺❃༻Have you ever felt the ache of a dream slipping away just when it was within your grasp? Have you ever had your heart torn by the loss of one dream, only to be presented with another—an unexpected dream you never saw coming?༺❃༻
Charlie’s sole desire was to play college softball, a dream she had tirelessly pursued throughout her youth. With unwavering determination, she achieved her goal, earning a coveted spot on a team situated on the opposite side of the country. To keep her dream alive, she embarks on a courageous move, leaving behind all she knows and loves.
However, when Charlie refuses to succumb to the partying and drinking culture among her teammates, she is unjustly accused of being an inadequate team player. Faced with the peril of losing her hard-earned scholarship, Charlie takes swift action, distancing herself from anyone who could jeopardize her future.
Carson, on the other hand, has always been a solitary soul, navigating life’s twists and turns in solitude. Born into wealth yet neglected by his parents, he is a young prodigy who, having graduated at the tender age of sixteen, embarks on a journey across the United States. He scoffs at the idea of relationships, wary of the tumultuous drama they often entail. That is until he crosses paths with Charlie. She is unlike anyone he has ever encountered—special, unique—and his intuition tells him so from the very beginning.
As their friendship blossoms, they become inseparable, cherishing every moment spent together. However, a misunderstanding casts an unexpected curveball into the mix, challenging the strength of their connection and threatening to shatter their bond.
In the face of adversity, will Charlie’s dream slip through her fingertips, vanishing into the abyss? Or will she summon the determination and resilience to rise above the challenges, catching the ball and securing her future?
Prepare yourself for an emotionally charged tale that explores the depths of dreams, resilience, and the unwavering spirit of pursuing one’s passions. Charlie and Carson’s journey unfolds with gripping intensity, igniting a spark of hope that love and dreams can coexist, even amidst the most formidable obstacles.
