Only desperate, try-anything-once CiCi Hurst would agree to take the job of mascot for her daddy's football team. But the recently dumped Hill Country heiress doesn't expect to be tackled to the ground by six feet five inches of flat-out gorgeous male....
Jake Culpepper is every woman's dream. Too bad the pro-football star is exactly the type CiCi's vowed to avoid. It's a no-brainer: no more low-down, cheating athletes! So why is she getting the feeling Jake's different?
Jake can't believe he just decked the boss's daughter! Now he's paying the price by working for CiCi at her family's camp for underprivileged kids. He didn't plan on playing the hero. Or falling so hard for her.
He just hopes CiCi feels the same way. Or he'll be the loneliest hero in the Lone Star State!
