Trisha Corbin always knew how to hide a bruise. With her momma’s boyfriends unable to keep their hands off of her, she had no choice. And as long as it meant the guys wouldn’t go near her little brother, Krit, it was worth it. But her days of dreaming that Prince Charming would ever come rescue her are far, far in the past.
Rock Taylor always had a plan. Through football, he would rise above the life he was born into. A full ride to play for a major college team was within his reach—assuming he didn’t let anything get in his way. But scoring a date with the hottest girl in Sea Breeze was proving harder than expected. Trisha Corbin was every man’s walking fantasy, and she wouldn’t even glance his way.
When Rock finally does get Trisha in his truck, it isn’t for a date. It’s because he picks her up on the side of the road, beaten and bruised and walking to the local hospital. Before Rock knows it, football is no longer his life. Trisha Corbin is. And he’ll do anything to save her. And keep her.

✤ ✤ ✤
Jason Bradley has everything going for him. He’s Banner High’s first-string varsity wide receiver, headed to another State championship, and the college recruiters are already knocking on his door. His girlfriend is every guy’s dream, there’s a brand new black Camaro with a 6.2L, V-6 engine parked in his garage, and he’s on cruise control.
But when the school’s beloved football coach turns up dead and Jason’s found standing over the body, his cruise control cuts off bringing his charmed life to a screeching halt, and the reality of being an accused murderer of the first degree takes over.
His girlfriend dumps him, his best friends turn their backs on him, and the entire community vilifies him as the kid who murdered the winningest coach the school has ever known.
There’s one person who does the math, though, and finds that things don’t really add up so neatly. She’s been his neighbor since they were on the playground together, and he used to be the kind of kid who stood up against bullies and protected the underdog. Who he’s accused of being now and the boy she used to know are two diametrically opposed personalities she cannot reconcile in her mind.
When everyone else walks away and leaves him to hang, she can’t. But it’s going to take more than guessing and wishing to get through to him and the truth of what happened, since he seems bound and determined to accept his fate as a criminal, tried as an adult and eligible for lethal injection.
Lawyers and parents, students and teachers … everyone wants to believe the worst of Jason. He’s had it too easy, they say. He got too full of himself, felt too entitled. Jason probably killed the coach because the old man was going to bench him during the big game. Jason’s not saying anything, so it’s easy to jump to the worst conclusions, lock him up and throw away the key.
Can one really determined girl get to the bottom of the mystery when no one else seems to care? It would be so much easier to watch him go down, and for many, maybe just a little bit too satisfying. After all, who isn’t guilty of finding pleasure in seeing that perfect someone suddenly exposed for the self-centered prick that he really is?
This is a standalone Thriller/Romantic Suspense novel.
