He’s back in his mountain hometown after an NFL-career-ending injury. She’s in the same small town helping her brother recover after a car racing crash. When Morris and Leighann run into each other at a wedding, he immediately asks her out, only to have a shockingly familiar little boy run up to her and call her “Momma.”
Morris Young has always felt like the odd man out in the huge Young family. He’s one of the youngest brothers, excluded from the band until now, and the only one without a child. His pro football career lasted a mere three years, and his marriage about the same time.
He’s been divorced for a few years now, but his feelings for his ex are as strong as ever. So when he runs into Leighann Drummond, the sparks are immediate and hot.
Leigh is in Coral Canyon to help her brother recover from a car accident. She’s working at the same place as Morris, but she’s managed to avoid him so far. She wants to go out with him and give him her number, but if she does, she’ll have to tell him about Eric.
The son she never told him about.
She just needs more time to order the words properly, that’s all.
When he sees the three-year-old at a wedding they’re both attending, Leigh’s time has run out. Morris takes one look at his son and knows.
“Is he mine?” he asks.
Can Leigh and Morris navigate this new ground between them to get their second chance at true love? Can Morris’s dreams of having a family and being included come to fruition? Or will the path along forgiveness and fatherhood be too much for him to handle all at once?
