I don't do love.
I don't do relationships.
But then Eli Tucker came back into my life.
Football is everything, but love is the only game that matters.
When Eli Tucker meets Zelda Porter on the first day of their college freshman year, he thinks she's vaguely familiar. But he'd remember a woman like her, wouldn't he? Zelda's blonde, built and beautiful . . . just Tuck's type, back when he had a type. Back when he was a football star. Back before he snapped his spine and ended up paralyzed.
Zelda's memory of her first encounter with Tuck is all too vivid, but that was a long time and many guys ago. She's not interested in long term or love. Men exist to meet a temporary need, and that's all she wants. Even if Eli Tucker still stirs something in her heart, she can't afford the pain that might come from allowing him closer.
Still, even though Tuck can't run for touchdowns anymore, he knows what wins the game: Hold on tight to what matters most. Use the element of surprise to your advantage. Fight like hell for every down.
And, no matter what, never give up.
