Ryan Foster had lived his life completely focused, dedicated to two things…his studies and football, but from the moment he arrived at Harvard his life had changed forever. Through his roommate Aaron he had met both Aaron’s cousin Delaney and her best friend Jaylee, and in that moment Ryan knew two things…Laney was truly his kindred spirit and Jaylee was the love of his life. But could he be both things to both women? And would the love he’d found with Jaylee survive the scrutiny of his jaded twin sister Felicity? Or would the secrets of their childhood in Oklahoma cost him everything that mattered most?
Well, that for sure gave all those girls watching a big eyeful of what was important to me. It showed them, in no uncertain terms, that I was off limits. And, to my favor, it showed all my teammates, just what a gorgeous girlfriend I had. I was proud of Jaylee and I wanted her to know just how proud of her I really was. From the beaming smile on her face, I could tell she understood and appreciated the gesture.
“Thank you, beautiful,” I breathed in relief. “I promise I will help you understand. I’m not trying to hurt you. I promise you that. Anything I do is only because I love you.”
“I know,” she said in a small voice. “I know you do.”
She stopped me and stepped closer, resting her hand on my broad chest for a moment before sliding it up to my shoulder. She turned and just smiled at all the whispering girls who walked by us on their way out of practice, confident in her place at my side. That alone set my heart racing. Finally she turned to me, her dark eyes meeting mine, her red lips pursed together in thought. I waited, longing to see what was taking her so much thought and time to put out there. Finally she bit her lip and stepped a little closer.
“Thank you,” she said softly, her hand sliding up to cup my cheek, softly brushing over the scruff of my beard.
“For what, beautiful?” I asked, cocking my head to the side in confusion.
