I fell in love with the wrong guy. His world is corrupt, and I’m done playing the game. I left months ago, and I’m not sure if he’s let me go or he’s simply giving me the illusion of freedom.
Even with no one controlling my life now, I struggle to find happiness. I haven’t allowed anyone new close to me in months—heck, probably years. But when the All-Pro quarterback tries to push his way in, I’m tempted even though I know I can’t be what he needs. Max is at the top of his game, and I won’t let him get hurt. Not by me and definitely not by Jack. The only way to keep Max safe is to let him go.
When my wife left me for another guy, I focused on my football and wasn’t even tempted to try again until I ran into the mysterious Elle.
She’s beautiful, but there’s more pulling me to her. She’s hesitant to let me in—hell she’s pretty much scared, but I push to stay close. Although she’s trying to hide the pain, I know it’s there and I’m determined to help.
But when the secrets start to come out, I’m pissed. I’ve shared a lot about me, and apparently she hasn’t told me anything real about her. I can’t have a second woman mess with my head. But am I strong enough to walk away when she asks for another chance? Hell no. Am I jeopardizing my NFL career? Possibly. Am I in too deep? Without a doubt.
