It was supposed to be a quick conversation with a cute boy at the airport while I dodged my ex and his new girlfriend.
We weren’t supposed to trade numbers.
He wasn’t supposed to be a football player.
And I definitely wasn’t supposed to fall for him since he’s attending a college a thousand miles away.
I saw past his jersey. And he saw past my last name.
Now it’s semester break, and by some Christmas miracle, he’s going to be close. So close.
I want to meet him again, but there’s just one problem.
My older brother can’t, under any circumstances, find out I’m dating his rival.
I received a complimentary early release e-book prior to release and am voluntarily leaving a review.
This is part 2 in this two-book series of holiday novellas about Stella and her sister, Holly. This book is Stella's story and it's a forbidden romance between Beau and Stella. They both go to rival colleges and Beau is a football player who has injured a player on Stella's schools' team. Her brother, Felix is also on the team, and he believes Beau intentionally injured the player and so Beau is very much hated.
This story starts from the point that Stella and Beau meet through there getting to know you stage with lots of texting. These two characters were really sweet with each other, and I really enjoyed the getting to know you phase of this story.
As time goes by and the holidays come up, Beau wants to see Stella, but she fears her brother Felix's reaction. This was a short story and I really loved it. I liked that there was so much action in this story, and I never felt bored and could not put the story down.
