Tennyson: He threw mud in my hair in third grade, and from that moment on, Chase Evans and I were inseparable. He was the rich football star, and I was from the wrong side of the tracks, but everybody knew our love would conquer all.
A twisted setup in our senior year ended with me breaking his heart. He left town, and I knew I'd be alone forever after that.
But he came back and decided I was his again, and how could I disagree? I wanted him with every fiber of my being, but I couldn’t let myself fall for him.
Not when there was something I had to tell him. Something that might destroy any hope of a second chance. Something that would change the course of our lives, no matter what his reaction was.
Chase: Tennyson Holland broke my heart the summer after graduation. Scratch that...she f*cking shattered my heart. I left for school and never looked back.
Meaningless fling after meaningless fling couldn't plug the hole she’d left in her wake, so I sank myself into getting my MBA and living up to the demands of my college football full scholarship.
I was a hotshot superstar, right up until my stepdad lost everything our family owned and I blew out my knee in a stupid play gone wrong. I was forced back to our small hometown, ego shattered as badly as my knee, our family poor as hell, me drifting and still so god damned broken.
From the moment I saw her again, I knew I had to have her. But would she take me back, knowing I had nothing? Would we ever get our second chance?
