I loved this book. Cal goes into his community service with one goal - find a way to get out of it and get back to preparing for the upcoming football season. He didn't expect to be attracted to Frankie and want to get to know her better. And he sure didn't expect to be drawn into the lives of the teenagers at the center.

I recently had the pleasure of meeting this author, and her books are fun as she is! This novel is a classic case of "opposites attract," yet some hard issues facing society are brought into the forefront of the plot, heightening the budding romance. Enjoyed the recurring theme of identity. :)

This book was a definate wake up call as to what happens to teens on the streets, but also to all the hard work done by those who care. Loved it!
Good story. Tough girl heroine with a youth center and injured football player hero who has to do community service at her center, or else. He'd rather buy his way out of it so he can focus on rehab, but the judge who ordered it isn't the type to let him out of actual work. There's a runaway girl who had a bad experience with a higher-up in the local child services agency. The hero wants to solve problems physically, but the heroine won't let him. I liked it. It's a good read.
