As teenagers, an uncharacteristic fling altered the lives of Belle Carpenter and Max Cooper forever. They decided right then that it was for the best if they never saw one another again. Instead they fell in love. Now they’re back in Grassland, out of college, working at the careers of their dreams and Belle is planning the wedding of the year… to someone else. But in a town known for a tradition of winning, Max isn’t about to accept defeat; especially when Belle’s putting up such a poor defense. With the help of Max’s meddling sister and Belle’s protective older brother… not to mention her dad, his surrogate parents, his former QB and fullback best friends and her college roommate… is there any chance that this all-state wide receiver turned coach won’t score with the former head cheerleader? Everyone in Alabama knows there’s no stopping a Gator when he knows what he wants, and that’s never been more true than when high-school sweethearts Return to Grassland.
