teaser tuesday. the pregame ritual

teaser. TUESDAY!

(in my head that was in the Sister, Sister theme song voice lol)

ANYWAY, whenever this book comes out, hopefully by the end of the month, I’m gonna be so excited.

But for now, here’s a little teaser. 🙂


(teaser is unedited and subject to change)


Get your shit together, Ava.

I cursed at myself for missing my third free throw in a row. Even though today was our off day, I found myself at the court working on my weakness; free throws. There was something about all eyes being on me, counting on me for that measly one point that could actually be a game-changer, that kept me nervous about shooting them. So nervous that last season I shot a weak ass 70% from the line.

I had to get better.

I took a deep breath and lined my feet up before taking a few dribbles and lifting the ball in the air. The ball was on my fingertips when I heard from afar, “There’s your problem.”

Initially the voice startled me until I turned around and saw who it was.

He was the real problem.

Miles strolled over to me, looking as if he had just got done getting some work in himself. “You gotta keep your elbow in, ma. The ball follows the line you create. When your elbow is hanging out in no man’s land, you’re bound to fuck up.”

I rolled my eyes, putting the ball on my hip before I responded, “I know how to shoot free throws; thank you very much.”

“Yet, that was the one thing I never saw in any of your highlight tapes. We all have weaknesses, Ava.”

“Oh yeah. Well then what’s yours?”

“Pretty baller chicks with bad ass attitudes.”

Damn, I should’ve kept that one to myself.


Ava knows that she’s the best girls basketball player in the country at the collegiate level.

She knows that she’s going straight the pros once her senior season comes to an end.

And she knows that finding a man is the least likely thing to happen while she’s chasing that dream.

That’s until she meets Miles.

A freshman phenom who has no idea what college life is like but is in for a red-headed surprise with a mean crossover.

Their chemistry is a given, but will age be more than just a number?

Or will the pregame ritual be enough to even the score
