Making a Comeback
More than a Game # 3
By: Kristina Mathews
Releasing July 7th, 2015
With a divorce in the works, Annabelle Jones heads out to Southern California, the land of sun and starting over. She wants to prove to herself and her young daughters that she still has what it takes to turn heads as a swimsuit model—that she doesn’t need a man to take care of her. Until an accident forces her to rely on the hunky, yet mysterious man next door…
Nathan Cooper is trying to revive his own career. Once a top left-handed relief pitcher, he tried to get over a hidden injury with the aid of banned substances. Not only was he caught and suspended, he was traded and missed out on winning the championship. Now he’s a free agent without a contract, and that means life is ready to play ball…
Sometimes when life throws us a curve ball, we need to get our game back on and make a comeback. This was a truly heartwarming story, not only of second chances, but how to take a responsibility of our actions, make a new start in life, and see all the possibilities out there for us.
Cooper made a mistake, with good intentions, but he broke the rules of the engagement. But he owned up to it, admitted it, and cleaned up his life. He is a solid person, goodhearted, kind, and caring. It is so easy to like him, admire him, and cheer for him. His connection with Annabelle's twins is adorable and cute. Scenes with those three just melted my heart.
Cooper fell for the image of Annabelle when he first time saw her picture. For ten years, Annabelle has been his dream and fantasy. Now life brought the real deal into his life, and he is falling fast while helping her with the recovery from an accident.
Annabelle is reconstructing her life after divorce, trying to rebuild her modeling career and built a solid foundation for her daughters. Until an accident changes everything again. She is drawn to Cooper, the chemistry is hot, the attraction sizzling between them, but can she risk her heart again, not to mention the twin's heart?
The story is well written and flows out from the pages. The characters are charismatic and highly likable, honest and well developed, the turmoil of their growth is palpable. With a perfect mix of romance, life, and baseball, Making A Comeback is an entertaining story

Kristina Mathews doesn't remember a time when she didn't have a book in her hand. Or in her head. But it wasn't until she turned forty that she confessed the reason the laundry never made it out of the dryer was because she was busy writing.
While she resigned from teaching with the arrival of her second son, she's remained an educator in some form. As a volunteer, parent club member or para educator, she finds the most satisfaction working with emergent and developing readers, helping foster confidence and a lifelong love of books.
Kristina lives in Northern California with her husband of more than twenty years, two sons and a black lab. A veteran road tripper, amateur renovator and sports fanatic. She hopes to one day travel all 3,073 miles of Highway 50 from Sacramento, CA to Ocean City, MD, replace her carpet with hardwood floors and serve as a “Ball Dudette” for the San Francisco Giants.
