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.
