Baltimore Blaze tight end Brody Janik is a natural-born football star-his record-breaking athletic performance and his cover-boy good looks have turned him into a household name. But Brody is hiding a health condition that may cut his career short.
PhD candidate Shannon "Shay" Everett works multiple jobs to put herself through school-including an unpaid internship with the Blaze training department. Strapped for cash, Shay answers the call of an NFL gossip blogger to uncover personal details about the Blaze players. Sneaking into the locker room one night, she gets entangled in Brody's secret . . . and swept up by his charm. He decides to keep her close-perhaps closer than either of them originally intended.
