I'm not good at writing reviews, but I'm going to try anyways, because I think this book deserves a lot more attention and I don't think the description is very descriptive.

I need more books from this author, she's amazing! This is the 2nd Blakney Francis book that i've absolutely loved. My only complaint is it ended too soon, I need & want more Courtland Mackenzie.

A flawed girl, meets her grandfather & together along with a small town football team, they will steal your heart...keep the tissue close by:-)
