Summary

After Cade Williams, the best tight end Madison University has ever seen, is acquitted by a jury and reinstated by the dean, he is determined to focus on three goals:
1. Help his team win a bowl game,
2. Ace his exams and, most importantly,
3. Women are completely, utterly, and irrevocably off-limits. 

Strait-laced accounting major, Vivian Ellis, hasn’t watched a complete game of football in her life. And when she receives her tutoring assignment, the last student she expected was Cade. Not only has the football star earned a reputation as the best looking heart-breaker on campus, his recent trial has made him notorious. 

But Cade is done with his past and he wants to prove it. When his teammates invite him to a celebration in his honor, he asks Vi to come along to keep the party-girls at bay. Except when Vi shows up without her glasses, she’s as sexy-hot as a runway model. Worse, his tutor is as off-limits as any woman can get. As the season continues, sparks fly while their chemistry darts from simmering to scorching. Until everything is blown to hell. Challenged by hateful rumors and a devastating injury, will these star-crossed lovers find the mettle to get back in the game?

More please

This was excellent sports/college romance. The writing and the story flow well and kept me wanting more. This author is new to me. Because I loved her writing and story, I looked her up and saw that she wrote mostly historical romance. I’m not a fan of historical romance so I hope this author write more story like this one. Highly recommend!

Amy Jarecki, thank you for another fabulous book!

I love Cade and Vivian's story. It reminds us to
never jump to conclusions without 100% proof.
Cade remains a Gentleman even when others
are cruel. Vivian is his tutor, who turns out
to be just what Cade needs. I love when
Honor and Truth wins in the end.
Amy, I love this Audible book. Mr.
Lockheart was great as Cade.

Best sports romance of 2021💜

This book grabbed me from the beginning and didn’t let go. At times it may leave you either breathless, near tears or smiling so big people will think you’re crazy lol. Not only does this couple have an instant connection but they’re chemistry was undeniably hot!
The despair this football star endures throughout this story is heartbreaking but as with all great romance there’s an amazing and strong woman who wants to help him get through this, she’s just not sure how.
Although nothing like this has happened to me personally, I understand that this subject is a real life issue and I appreciate the way this was written.
This story is performed by two amazingly talented narrators. Amanda Stribling has the perfect voice for Viv, and she has a fantastic male voice. Blake Lockheart performed Cade brilliantly. Both narrators showcased their talents brilliantly and really brought the emotions and feelings to life.
This story can be read as a standalone and has an HEA.
I highly recommend this book, and secretly hoping it’s going to be part of a series. ;)
