Cover in category: 'Fiction' > 'Sports'
Despite his lack of ‘elite player’ status and possessing below average looks, Marty had little trouble attracting considerably younger women for one-night stands, casual flings, and an occasional short-term relationship, yet each left him unfulfilled.
A career-ending injury urges Marty to consider new professional options, find someone to share his life, and start a family. Smitten from the first time he laid eyes on Harper Finnegan, Marty knew she was the girl he wanted to marry.
Harper never followed sports and had no idea who Marty O’Freel was when they met at a football-watching party hosted by her boss, San Diego mayor Philip Bisson. Bemused at first by Marty’s affections, Harper eventually returns the former AHC defenseman’s ardor.
The couple relocate to Pittsburgh after Marty is hired as an associate coach for the Rebels, but will their relationship withstand living in a new city?
