Before you make your play, know what you want.
When Danni Callahan inherits the Arden Lumberjacks she knows it won't be fun. Not only is the team terrible, she'd rather focus on her Haitian orphanage. But she promised her grandfather that she wouldn't sell the team. Then Joe Hoagland shows up. As a teen, she'd nursed a tremendous crush on the star player that he never seemed to notice. Twenty years later, he was back and he'd noticed.
Hoagy had built a sports social media empire after he retired from pro ball. Owning a team would be the icing on a fantastic career. No way did Danni want to be stuck with them. All he needed to do was keep close to her and bide his time until she realized she wanted to sell. Staying close was no hardship. In fact, it might be better than owning a professional football team.
