Leroy is married and moved away, but Ross, now star quarterback, isn't convinced she’s over Leroy. When Leroy arrives on campus to give a lecture, Marcy must make all the arrangements. After contact with Leroy, Marcy admits to what she’s known all along—she’s over Leroy and wants Ross in her life. Can she convince Ross to look past their different backgrounds and give love a chance?

  1. Sounds interesting, Steph. You asked me to leave a comment about what I liked about summer. Summer sunshine at the beach would've been my answer for most of my life, but now that I don't spend much time in the sun, I have to say Watermelon is one of my favorite summer things!

  2. It sounds like a wonderful series of stories. I wish you all the best!!

  3. Congrats on this new release, Steph! I've started reading it and it's on my Kindle!
