Amalie and Jo have lived in Boston for a few years now, they decided to move there after high school together. After a difficult past with a controlling ex and abusive boyfriend Eric (who also happens to be her brothers best friend) and a rough friendship Amalie and Jo decide to try the dating pool again. After a series of blind dates Amalie once again helps Jo out and uses an excuse to pull her out of another bad date. Instead of going home that night they decide to go to a club…that night changes everything… Amalie meets a large mysterious gorgeous man named Jarrod. After some stalkerish behavior he talks her into a date, which Jo tries to flirt with him when he picks up Amalie. After a few more dates Jarrod has to return to New York where he lives. While visiting Jarrod for the weekend Amelie’s brother Niklas calls and wants to meet up…even though he hasn’t spoke to her in almost 3 years. After finding out what Jarrod does for a living and meeting some of his team mates and their wives Amalie feels comfortable and relaxed with them, something she hasn’t felt in a while. Hayley Faiman does a great job with “Pitching for Amalie”. The characters all flow well and have just the perfect amount of background information so you can understand but not be over informed with useless information. Amalie decided she wants to trust Jarrod with her past about Eric so she tells him everything that happened…” he was so sweet at first, but as time went on, he started to morph into a cruel boy and then a vicious man” Then that one thing happens, the game changer, you know it’s coming you just don’t know when. After overcoming her past and moving forward after meeting Jarrod will Niklas, Jo, and Eric destroy everything Amalie has worked so hard to overcome or will her and Jarrod prevail over everything and move forward together and finally get the happy ending she deserves after such a bad past.
