“Quint and Annie sitting in a tree…K.I.S.S.I.N.G.”
Quint Lawson and Annie Weber heard that childhood song over and over and it never bothered them. Even though Quint was only five, Annie wasn’t just his neighbor. She would become his best friend and the love of his life. Annie wasn’t interested in dolls, or girly things when growing up. A tomboy at heart, having a boy as a best friend suited her just fine. That same boy captured her heart.
Quint had two passions, his girl and baseball. From kindergarten to college, Quint tore up every baseball diamond he played on. His position was shortstop. His talent was undeniable. Professional ball was most definitely in his future, and he was ready for it. Annie would be right by his side.
When everything in life is perfect, it’s hard to imagine heartbreak in any form. Quint wasn’t immune to its power. This shortstop had no idea what any form of heartbreak could do to his perfect world. When it hit, there were many casualties left in its wake…the most important one was Annie.
Can a person be prepared for, understand, or even endure a misfortune if they’ve never experienced one before? In Quint Lawson’s case the answer is no.
The Shortstop by A. M. Madden
I was pulled into this sweet love story from the first page. You meet Quint and Annie, two peas in a lovable pod. They have grown together, going through life loving and supporting each other. They have been in love since a young age and have always supported each other despite friends and family telling them to have some time apart and see where their path leads them but they both knew deep down that their path was to be traveled together. Best friends, soul mates and lovers.
After college Quint and Annie's lives take a turn for the better when their dreams start coming true. Quint gets called up to the pros and Annie is right by his side supporting, loving him. Annie adjusts her life to be with him, feelings get confused but are quickly pushed down.
When the unthinkable happens, their world comes crashing down. Quint's world fell into darkness and Annie was forced out of it.
The bond between these two characters was simply amazing, even through all the pain and heartache that they went through, they still loved. Loved hard and forever.
You were taken a on journey that in real life can happen, it was real and heartfelt and I loved it!
