Heather is an attractive, competitive softball player, sweet and sassy, who is used to winning…but with guys she tends to strike out once they find out she’s not their type. Tyler is a competitive baseball player, charming and saintly, who hasn’t kissed anyone. So what happens when Heather tries to get his first kiss, and Tyler tries to win her heart while launching his baseball career? It results in a head-on competition that ignites a series of of lighthearted ploys and cat-and-mouse chase. Falling in love wasn’t a part of their plan…but now Tyler must choose between his dream and Heather, and she must choose between love and loneliness.
“Pitching Love and Catching Faith” is a bit of fresh air, an old-fashioned romantic story about a love worth waiting for. A young man named Tyler challenges fast-pitch softball pitcher Heather Thomas that he can hit her pitches. He is down by two strikes when he finally connects, in more ways than one. Although they have a bit of a rocky beginning, the two definitely have chemistry.
Heather learns that Tyler has never kissed a girl. He is saving his first kiss for a “special girl.” She decides she will be his first kiss. He likes her but is offered a chance to play baseball for the Angel’s organization, and he has a crack at the majors so he doesn’t want to get too involved. However, despite several misunderstandings, they both have feelings for one another and Tyler gives her a purity ring. He makes her breakfast and fixes a picnic lunch for her as a surprise. Will Heather be the first girl Tyler kisses?
