Known for his record-breaking stats and womanizing ways, wide receiver Buddy Carruthers would give it all up for one chance to win the only woman he ever wanted - Emmy Meacham. Hard-won games and traveling half the season kept Buddy from pursuing his secret passion. Even if he managed to corner her for a moment, would she still care?
Now a rock star known as Emerald, Emmy lived her life on the road with no time for love. In her dreams, she longed to turn back the clock and spend another night with Buddy. But lies and deceit had kept them apart for five years. Would a chance meeting wash away those years or cause old wounds to resurface? Could two lives traveling in opposite directions make room for love or would they continue to spin, out of sync, and always alone?
Caution: This book contains locker room language.
Jim Roberts is the perfect narrator for this series by Jean Joachim. He brings the characters to life, and has a voice made for narrating football players. Even his portrayal of the female characters point of view doesn't detract from the story. It's very easy to get lost in his narration, I think.

This is not only a sports romance but a second chance story. I was really impressed with Ms. Joachim's writing style. It's not easy to balance romance with real football and the life of a rock star. I could actually picture the football games, the rock concerts and the things going on to get ready for the concert. I loved the way Buddy loved Emmy. Carried a torch for her all those years. The narrator was fairly decent to listen to
