Jake Wilde has two loves, but neither is going his way.
"LOVE that Wilde family!...These men have the whole package with looks, brains, and good hearts. No matter which story you are reading you are drawn into it and made to feel a part of it." Southern Yankee Book Reviews
Pro football star, Jake Wilde is the youngest of the Wilde Brothers and to anyone who doesn’t know him, he appears to be a man who as it all. Only he wears his heart on his sleeve, has been traded from a team he believes is family, and the woman he’s head over heels in love with has walked out the door.
Alone now in a new city, Jake knows no one and tells himself there is nothing to like about this new team.
But when he meets Chris Jeger, a cheerleader who overheard him outside the locker room on the phone begging the woman he’s so twisted up in knots over to give him another chance, he’s not only humiliated, but instead of ignoring him she offers him some unexpected friendly advice.
Only Chris is a girl who’s been on the wrong side of love before and sees Jake as walking trouble. But when a friendship evolves between them, Chris reminds herself that Jake has given his heart to someone else and becoming involved with Jake Wilde could not only leave Chris broken-hearted, but on the outside looking in. And when reality and a visitor from his past knocks on his door, will this be the wake-up Jake needs to realize that sometimes, what you wish for isn’t what you really want?
