Ruari is a mad keen footballer who dreams of making it big, he loves Jenna but he is thinking of his future in football so leaves her alone too much so that when Paul, who has a major crush on Jenna, asks her for a drink she goes – there are consequences that she did not expect. When Ruari is signed up by an out of town team he asks Jenna to go with him but she tells him she can’t as she is now with Paul.
Jenna gets on with her life as Ruari does his, but they are still in love with each other. Jenna tries to make her relationship with Paul work but something is lacking?
I thought Paul was a jerk really and certainly not husband material for Jenna, he said he loved her and would be there for her but he wasn’t. In the meantime Ruari cannot move on and forget Jenna, even though he tries to. When he is bought by Paul’s father Sorrel he has no choice but to come back home to where it all began and there are consequences! I think that Ruari is too forgiving and hard to believe. Maybe there are people like him out there!(less)
