When Ivy asked her best friend to run away with her at sixteen, she knew he'd say no. He had football, an amazing family, and a happy home to go back to every day. So the night Ivy snuck out of his bedroom window after hugging him goodbye, she accepted she'd probably never see him again.
Then they both wound up at Lindon University four years later.
Ivy is barely picking up the pieces of her life when the boy whose initials she used to doodle hearts around approaches her at work. Aiden Griffith. Lindon U's star tight end. Still as attractive. Still as dedicated. With rumors of him being drafted to the NFL coming to fruition, Ivy knows it's only a matter of time before they have to say goodbye again.
But he can't seem to let her go, no matter what she says, and she doesn't think she wants him to.
