Struggling pro football wide receiver Derek Ramsey was once Rachel McCormick's best friend and lover. She's about to help him get back his game.
Stuck with an empty bank account, an uncanny ability for evaluating football talent, and a dogged determination to succeed in a man's world, Rachel swears to do just that. When it's suggested Derek needs a pre-game tension reliever, Rachel takes one for the team.
The next day, Derek has the best performance of his not-so illustrious career. Soon Derek and Rachel are racking up nights in bed--and other places--and the team is racking up wins. But Derek knows the truth behind a secret that destroyed her father years before. A truth that might destroy Derek, too.
Torn between love and loyalty, Rachel sees time winding down. It's fourth and goal, one second left on the clock. The next play must be made for her heart.
