He is the super popular and outgoing soccer star of their school and Ruby's crush. Thinking nothing will ever come of her feelings, Ruby is surprised when Brent begins to pursue her. There are several factors that test their love for each other and they hold tight to their feelings for each other but sometimes there are barriers that even love cannot overcome and Ruby and Brent agree to go their separate ways. Years past and they run into each other and realize their love has not gone away and agree to give it one more try. This was a great story about love and second chances and not being afraid to follow your heart. I hope to read more stories from this author.
