Football is our life, but love is what will save us.
An unrequited love finally gets a chance . . . and a broken soul finds a way to heal. But can forgiveness lead to forever?
Since the day my ex-boyfriend took his own life, I’ve been sleep-walking through the days and just barely surviving the nights. I didn’t think I was capable of anything more . . . until Tate Durham, the newest Philadelphia football hottie, found me sitting on the floor of a grocery store, crying over a bag of potato chips.
Tate’s patient friendship shows me that I might not be beyond hope. But what if I don’t have the courage to trust him with my heart?
I have been in love with Gia Capri since the moment I laid eyes on her back in college. Unfortunately, that happened to be the same night she met Matt Lampert. Even though that dude was my teammate, I knew he was bad news. Still, when it came to Gia, I didn’t stand a chance.
But now he’s gone, and an unexpected meeting with Gia means I get a chance to prove myself. For a time, it feels like my care and honesty begin to heal what’s broken in Gia’s soul. Still, no matter how hard I try—or how much I love her—making her whole again might take more than I can give.
But love never gives up. And neither will I.
Football is everything, but love is the only game that matters.
The guy who’s been my best friend since we were kids is now the star of the football team. He’s dating cheerleaders and hanging out at wild parties. He’s leaving me behind, and it’s breaking my heart.
And then there’s Nate . . . my other best friend. I know he’s crushing on me. I wish things were different, but for me, it’s always been Leo. It’s always going to be Leo.
When I finally get my shot with him, I’m not going to waste a single moment. I want to be the girl he can never forget.
My life is a friggin’ dream right now. Any girl I want is mine for the asking, and everyone treats me like royalty. What else could I need?
Apparently, the answer is . . . the one girl I shouldn’t want. The one who’s been my friend forever. The one who is too good for me. The one I can’t stop desiring, even though I know better.
