Synopsis from Goodreads
I broke her heart ten years ago and left town.
She hates me, and rightly so. It doesn’t matter that the rest of the country loves me, that I’m a starting quarterback with a multimillion-dollar contract. Because when I look in the mirror, all I see is a failure who was too young—and too afraid—to fight for what I wanted.
But I’m not that guy anymore, and all I need is one shot to convince her.
He has no idea what happened after he left. And now I’m supposed to work alongside him like we don’t have this huge, messy history?
But I’m older now, wiser, and I won’t let anything stand in my way of doing a good job for this league. Not even one overpaid, arrogant player who thinks we’re going to kiss and make up.
News flash, buddy: I am over you.
Weston and Jane were high school sweethearts; their intense relationship crashed and burned when Weston went off to college on a football scholarship leaving Jane devastated and Weston filled with regret.
10 years later Jane and Weston’s lives converge once more when Weston is transferred to play for the team Jane works for. Jane has harbored a lot of resentment towards Weston and has never fully recovered from their break-up, becoming very guarded in the process. There were other circumstances regarding the break-up hinted at through the narrative building tension within the plot. My mind always goes to the worst-case scenario so there were a lot of heart palpitations occurring while reading.
Despite their agonizing break-up, it is blatantly obvious that neither Weston or Jane has lost their feelings for the other; the only problem is the reason for their break in the first place is still relevant today – the time and dedication required to be a first-class athlete.
Jane and Weston belong together, that much is undeniable BUT can Weston see past the barriers to the solution and take a chance on love 💓💖💘 You’ll have to read it to find out 😘
