Forgiveness is brutal.
It’s worse when the hurt hits you on your blind side. And it’s impossible when the heartbreak comes the night before you leave for college, thinking you’re on the same page with the love of your life when it comes to being hundreds of miles apart for the next four years.
Tucker carries the hurt of Mason walking away, and it keeps him stuck – unable and unwilling to move on. When she transfers to Tucker’s school for their final year, it’s a hit he isn’t ready for.
Mason has one, no, two, no, three things on her mind: run her best track season yet, get into grad school, and convince the love of her life to give her another shot.
Things don’t necessarily go in that order – or to plan – as they work through the history of their heartbreak, and it doesn’t help that their years apart dealt blows that caused even more pain.
Tucker is the defensive tackle usually running the blitzes. But this one he won’t see coming.
