One night … one kiss … one touch … will change everything.

Kelley Moore’s tragic home life should make him a survivor. But when he’s uprooted yet again, his plans for a better future seem impossible. Being a player on and off the football field is all he knows, until Lenora Wells. The beautiful town princess makes him feel and want things he never thought he could have…

Lenora will do anything to get out of her town, even if it means dating the wrong guy. There’s one problem: she can’t stop thinking about the gorgeous, complicated boy with the unusual eyes who gives her butterflies and makes her question her choices.

When their lives collide, the world shifts and not in their favor. Four years later, the sins of their past can never be taken back and forgiveness won’t come easy.

College is a different game, a second chance for something better.

She’s not the girl he remembers and he’s the one boy she can never forget.

He’s made a name for himself as the star quarterback — the golden boy who can do no wrong. But he’s only interested in being her hero.

Despite everything, she can’t deny he still makes her heart flutter; and she’s got him chasing butterflies.

~ My Thoughts ~

Instant connection … that’s what I felt about both Kelley and Len. Heartbreak and hope followed.

Characters written with such raw emotion and realism is what brought this story to life for me. Each character’s physical and emotional attributes written with such perfection, nothing is left to the imagination of the person reading. Deep, brooding and never willing to give in or up made each and every character’s story interesting.

Friends and family play a large role and the author doesn’t sugar coat the bad. You feel the pull, the devastation, the devotion and hope.

Tables turn, story lines are switched and your heart that had started to mend, breaks all over again.

A story that will warm your heart, break your heart and have you cheering for the fight that lives within the characters.
