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.
