Declan was the epitome of strength, the top defensive back, top student in his classes, part of THE top-notch football team. But when he fails a basic challenge in front of his entire team--especially to a tiny thing like Bailey McIntyre--he's furious. So is his team captain. And Declan just can't seem let it go. And it gets worse... because he starts to think about Bailey as more than just the guy who destroyed his reputation.

This story is set at an elite private all-boys school.  The campus is very collegiate-like, and each student is expected to participate in a sport of some kind as a way of integrating mind, body, and spirit. It will be told in three parts.  Part 1 is exclusively from Declan's POV, part 2 will be Bailey's POV, and the chapters in part 3 will alternate between the two.  It is a slightly different approach I'm trying with this story, so I hope you enjoy it.

I honestly have this story bookmarked. I check back more than twice a day, with fingers crossed, hoping there's a new chapter. This story is very well written and flows so effortlessly. It just keeps you wanting more. Looking forward to future chapters. Stay awesome

Just continuing to practice patience for craftingmom’s muse.

Yes, but I’m waiting for @Timothy M.'s muse too. Is it possible their muses ran off together for a little ‘something-something’? Then they should both be back refreshed and ready to inspire their ‘mused’!  ;-)
