She has trouble trusting in anyone—but this football player just might win her over . . .
Ever since experiencing a childhood trauma, reclusive artist CC Calhoun has suffered from panic attacks. Sometimes it seems like it would be easier to just stay home, with only Walter—her Rottweiler puppy—for company.
But when her anxiety starts spiraling one day on a Manhattan street—and a fateful kiss from handsome wide receiver Kevin “Tuck” Tucker is enough to stop the episode cold—she starts to wonder if guarding her heart and hiding from the world has been the right choice. Will going on a test date with Tuck open her to trusting someone for the first time in years? Or will she wind up being just another notch in the overly confident jock’s bedpost?
Tuck has a reputation for charming women, but after his kiss with CC, he’s left aching for more. When he proposes a second date, his attraction to the sexy blonde looks like the makings of true love—something he’s never quite believed in until now. But when Tuck discovers CC’s childhood secrets, will the pro athlete be tough enough to stay by her side—or will he betray her hard-earned trust?
