A gymnast haunted by an almost paralyzing fall. A former volleyball star trying to reclaim his status as a pro. Can they break down the barriers stacked against them to build a life together?
Eight years after a serious injury threatens to end her elite career, McKenzie Bowman has one last shot to make the team representing the United States at the Global Elite Games. Indebted to her oppressive mother, she has no time for romance. Too bad the gorgeous athletic trainer at her gym doesn’t seem to get the message … and she’s struggling to find the willpower to send it.
Mitch Skaggs never expected to return to competitive beach volleyball following the sudden death of his teammate just weeks after being crowned Junior World champions. Now committed to his career helping other athletes achieve their goals, he’s floored when a high-profile coach approaches him with an opportunity to reignite the dream he buried years ago. But life as a professional athlete isn’t easy on relationships, and his pursuit of a beautiful yet painfully shy gymnast has already proved challenging enough.
As Mitch works to break through her iron-clad walls, his infectious optimism makes it hard for McKenzie to keep him at arm’s length. However, letting him in soon leads to heartrending decisions. How can they choose between their dreams and happily ever after?
