It was an accidental spring fling three years ago—one week spent in the mountains of Big Sur, and no one was the wiser. Ignore the fact that Tobias James was my neighbor and my best friend's older brother and that upon our return his hoop dreams were waiting for him, robbing us of any potential future we could have shared. Now, I'm fulfilling my own dreams in L.A., and my biggest dream of all is about to come true. The last thing I expected was for my past and my present to collide. Not now. Not here. Not him. But he struts back into my life like he never even left. Unfortunately, I'll never forget what happened after he did. The ball is in my court, but Tobias isn't below stealing—my power, my resolve, my heart. When he wants a second chance to reignite our connection, my answer is simple: We can't. Not unless we defy the rules our dreams were built on and risk everything.
