Trent Derringer grew up trained to be a baseball warrior. Obsessed with the game by the age of six, he escaped the troubled world around him by focusing on bat, glove, and ball. Trent was a knight leading his team into battle — bold, valiant, gallant, and celibate.
Then he ran into sports reporter Drew Early. Trent’s manager instructed him in rule #1 for dealing with reporters like Drew. “Never give them what they want.” That meant being boring in an interview, but Drew refused to play by Trent’s rules. His looks were distracting, and he was asking all the wrong questions.
Soon, a moment of vulnerability for Trent led to quiet moments together and the understanding that they had one goal in common — having each other. Unfortunately, getting the rest of the world to play by their new rules wasn’t so easy.
