Going All In
Being the nice guy leaves me open to being a rebound romance.
Which I’m not interested in. I’ve got better things to do.
Like taking my spot on the NBA draft picks. It’s all that matters to me.
Love has never been on the radar. I’m too focused for all that fluff.
Then life slows me down. Way down.
An injury at the end of the spring semester has me working my way back to full health all summer long.
And wouldn’t you know it? I’m paired up with the most beautiful and aggravating girl on the women’s basketball team.
She ain’t got a chip on her shoulder. She’s got a family-sized bag.
Her body was built for ballet shoes and tights. All of which I’d give up my dreams to see her in.
But she’s focused on one thing—not being anything like her mom.
The mother that is head of the dance program at our university.
I might need my body to heal, but this pretty woman needs her heart mended.
She’s got some deep wounds from the past that she’s not willing to release just yet.
Where I didn’t think I’d ever say such words, I’m up for the job.
This one is mine. I’m going all in.
