Review: I was looking forward to this book and didn’t really know what to expect from it. But I was not disappointed at all. My rating for this book kept raising till I was done with the book, because I liked it so much. The author does such a great job making this book have normal teenage problems that you can’t help but fall a little in love with it by the time its over. The characters Derek and Ashtyn have a lot to deal with in this book and in the coming books that I just cant wait to read. Also the part of the book that is the best is Ashtyn being a football player, I have never seen or read anything about a female football player before and I must say I was impressed. I’m really looking forward to the next books in the series and to hear more about Derek and Ashtyn story.

Summary: After getting kicked out of boarding school, bad boy Derek Fitzpatrick has no choice but to live with his ditzy stepmother while his military dad is deployed. Things quickly go from bad to worse when he finds out she plans to move them back to her childhood home in Illinois. Derek’s counting the days before he can be on his own, and the last thing he needs is to get involved with someone else’s family drama.

Ashtyn Parker knows one thing for certain–people you care about leave without a backward glance. A football scholarship would finally give her the chance to leave. So she pours everything into winning a state championship, until her boyfriend and star quarterback betrays them all by joining their rival team. Ashtyn needs a new game plan, but it requires trusting Derek—someone she barely knows, someone born to break the rules. Is she willing to put her heart on the line to try and win it all?
