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.
Rachel and Derek are torn between love and duty, and the clock is winding down. It's fourth and goal, one second left in the game. The next play Derek makes must be for Rachel's heart.

Fantastic second chance love story!
Wow! I think this is one of my favorite books by Jami Davenport! I love her writing style normally but I just feel like this one was just so special. Sexy, sweet, fun, passionate and emotional, this one ticks off a lot of boxes. This is a second chance love story between Derek and Rachel but it is truly so much more than that. This couple has undeniable chemistry that try as they might, they could not keep it at bay. My emotions are still all over the place after reading this. I really love football, so I love how much of that is actually included. I definitely became a true Steelheads fan throughout their season! I also love the whole Ryan side story, so emotional. Last but not least, I really love the dynamic between Rachel and Derek and their backstory. I was rooting for them the whole time too!!
