The sound of the gavel crashing down,
Has my life flashing before my eyes.
Learning to play ball.
Falling in love,
Marrying an incredible woman and starting a family
Becoming a starting pitcher for the Indianapolis Lightning.
Everything I ever wanted… Until I struck out.
The same success that gave me the life I dreamed of,
Took it all away.
I’d do anything for a second chance,
Even throw the perfect pitch.
A signature on a piece of paper…
It binds you to someone, or it can tear them away.
It broke my heart to file the papers.
Gutted me to sign them.
But this isn’t the life I envisioned.
Tired of competing to be his number one priority,
I had to walk away from the man I loved.
I needed to be strong for our girls, for me.
Life goes on.
People can change.
Now he wants a second chance.
But can I forgive the man who threw it all away, and trust that he won’t do it again?
Review by Twinsie Dee
I bought this book and this is my honest opinion
Derek just heard worst thing he’s ever heard in his life the judges gavel stating that his marriage is officially over. His wife Jillian filed for divorce because she was fed up with his parting and acting like he was single when she was home all the time raising their girls when he was on the road playing baseball. With the marriage final that gave Derek the biggest wake up call he ever had, it was time to get his shit together and get his family back at any cost. Jillian was heartbroken and hurt that she no had to send her kids overnight to their dad’s, she never wanted to file for divorce but he I didn’t have a choice. Will Derek get his head outta his ass and be able to win his wife and her heart back or did his one shot get thrown away with his past. Wow this was such a good story and of course throwing kids into the story line makes it better.
