The Game Can’t Love You Back
Publication date: May 15th 2018
Genres: Contemporary, Romance, Young Adult
Eve is used to being the odd woman out. As the only girl on her school’s baseball team, she knows exactly how to put sweaty, macho baseball players in their place, and she’s focused on one thing and one thing only—being the best pitcher she can be.
But when a freak accident forces her high school to be absorbed by the neighboring town, Eve has to contend with a new group of guys who aren’t used to having a woman on their team. And the new team’s star pitcher, Jamie, has no interest in being ousted from his throne. He can’t afford to give up his starting slot to a new pitcher—even worse, to a girl.
As the competition between Jamie and Eve starts to heat up, so does their attraction to each other. Can they keep their heads in the game, or will they end up getting played?
Karole lives outside of Philadelphia, PA with her loving husband, exuberant little girl, and smiley little boy. She adores YA Romance, because it would be awesome if life in general had a requisite feel-good happy ending rule. Vices include obscene Haribo gummy consumption, addiction to Starbucks NF vanilla lattes, and tendency to hoard Bath and Body Works 3-wick candles.
Happy book birthday to The game can’t love you back by Karole Cozzo!

(DISCLAIMER: This review is based on my opinion only and may contain coarse language)
Eve’s plans are twarted when a accident forces her high school to be combined into the neighbouring town’s. She meets Jamie, who stands in the way of her to be the best pitcher and getting the CY Young trophy.
The dual POV was really interesting as we get to see both sides to the story! The interaction between Eve and Jamie were really awkwardly cute! The overall story was really cute and Eve had a very good character arc!
Definitely recommended for fans of contemporary YA novels with a enemies to lovers type of romance!
