Overview

In this second book in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Cora Carmack’s New Adult, Texas-set Rusk University series, which began with All Lined Up, a young woman discovers that you can’t only fight for what you believe in . . . sometimes you have to fight for what you love

Dylan fights for lost causes. Probably because she used to be one.

Environmental issues, civil rights, education—you name it, she’s probably been involved in a protest. When her latest cause lands her in jail for a few hours, she meets Silas Moore. He’s in for a different kind of fighting. And though he’s arrogant and not at all her type, she can’t help being fascinated with him. Yet another lost cause.

Football and trouble are the only things that have ever come naturally to Silas. And it’s trouble that lands him in a cell next to do-gooder Dylan. He’s met girls like her before—fixers, he calls them, desperate to heal the damage and make him into their ideal boyfriend. But he doesn’t think he’s broken, and he definitely doesn’t need a girlfriend trying to change him. Until, that is, his anger issues and rash decisions threaten the only thing he really cares about, his spot on the Rusk University football team. Dylan might just be the perfect girl to help.

Because Silas Moore needs some fixing after all.

A political activist and a star football player find romance in this sparkling sequel to All Lined Up. College students Dylan Brenner and Silas Moore meet in jail after she chains herself to a homeless shelter and he gets involved in a barroom brawl with a former teammate. Silas doesn’t consider himself a good person, having endured a broken family life with an absentee mother. But he helps out Dylan by paying the bond for her and her friend Matt. Silas is instantly attracted to Dylan, not only because of her beauty, but because she sees past his uncaring jock exterior to the kind heart inside. Dylan is drawn to Silas’s good looks, and she wants to help him overcome his difficult past and learn how to channel his anger. Their relationship faces many obstacles, especially Silas’s belief that Dylan looks down on him. The love scenes are plentiful and sensuous in this well-paced and emotionally charged romance.

Local football star Silas Moore meets Dylan Brenner in jail, of all places, but while she's fighting lost causes, he's plain fighting—his ex-best friend, his teammates and, apparently, a major attraction to Dylan; could she be the girl to save him, and will he let her?Dylan is from the right side of the tracks, or at least she was adopted into it. A regular attendee at protests and defender of righteous causes, she's a little surprised when she crosses a line and gets arrested. But landing in jail gives her the opportunity to meet Silas, one of the stars of the famous Rusk football team, who's in jail after a bar fight. She has to admit she's drawn to him. Not only is he gorgeous, but she relates to his compelling restlessness. Since her longtime boyfriend recently broke up with her, she's been at odds with a few things in her life, but meeting Silas seems to move her in a new direction. Her wealthy parents expect her to get back with her socially approved ex and are wary of her social consciousness. Silas is from the wrong side of the tracks himself and has felt a little adrift since his ex-best friend got kicked off the team. Starting the season in trouble hasn't endeared him to his coach or his team, and spending time with Dylan makes him feel grounded, despite the taut sexual tension between them. However, her penchant for taking on causes makes him wonder if he's simply one of her do-good projects. When their social, academic, athletic and economic worlds collide, Silas and Dylan must decide who they are before they can consider a future with each other. Carmack cleverly and effectively explores identity, economics and personal demons against the high-stakes backdrop of college football. A sexy, dynamic combination of the romance and coming-of-age elements the new-adult genre is known for.
