Book Review: Listen Pitch by Lani Lynn Vale

Rhys Rivera has been through a lot. His father was killed. His sister was attacked. Oh, and his "uncle" wants to kill him. Just another day in the life of the son of a crime boss. Rhys gets tired of it and runs away. By the time his "uncle" finds him, Rhys is a sought after baseball star. There's no way his "uncle" will continue to attempt to kill him.  Before Rhys knows it, eight years have past. He is the star short stop for the Longview Lumberjacks, one of the highest paid players on the team. He doesn't live in an elaborate or elite part of town. Instead, he donates large portions --all but a few million dollars of his salary to charities. He lives in a middle class neighborhood in a duplex. Everything appears to be fine until his gets into a motorcycle accident that lands him in ICU for months--four months to be exact. Each day during those four months, his neighbor sat and spoke to him while he was in a medically induced coma.
