Three years later, Ford is still stuck in that moment - when his leg was broken and his dreams along with it. Not able to move on, Ford trudges through his life, each day more depressing than the last.
Poppy Mitchell has dreams of being a doctor, and she will work night and day to get there. Sweet, focused, and hard working, Poppy forges ahead when obstacles get in her way. When circumstances bring them together, Ford and Poppy develop an unlikely friendship. As they grow closer, Ford is faced with another fourth down decision. Will he go after his old dreams when given the chance? Will Poppy sacrifice her dreams for his? Or will she let him go?
**This book is recommended for a mature audience, age 18 and older, due to language and explicit content.
This story is full of emotions - when football star Ford Walsh gets injured during a game he can't seem to get his life back on track and he's dealing with his mother who has cancer and not long left to live. He's miserable and grouchy and gave up until Poppy comes into his life. I loved their awkwardness with each other in the beginning with Ford being a ass but as Poppy's mother says she's too nice. I loved their feelings for each other but not wanting to show them without knowing how the other felt. Very sweet story full of loss, anger, hope and love. I hope Brook gets her HEA maybe with the new renter ! Hint hint ...I thought this book was well written I wanted to keep reading I needed to know how Ford and Poppy ended up....you will not be disappointed. Oh yeh and I loved Ford's friends they are some awesome people. 5 stars
