Publisher's Summary

Ruby Turner was never meant to be mine.

When I first met her, she was a fresh, young American sports journalist trying to find her footing in a new life abroad. She was the one interviewing me for an article, yet I wanted to know more about her. She captivated me. But she went home with Marco that night. My agent. My brother.

And I did what I could to pretend I was fine with it. After all, I'm Luciano Ribeiro. As the captain of Real Madrid and Portugal's National Team, it's my job to be cool, calm, and collected, not easily rattled. Only what I felt for Ruby over time shook me to my very core. It made me do things I never imagined I would do.

It started with a stolen kiss in the middle of the night. It led to a passionate tryst. It created a burden of guilt that I had to carry, as Ruby came in and out of my life until she left for good, leaving her mark on me.

Now, seven years later, she's back. She was the one who got away. I don't think I'll let her go this time. But I might not have a choice. Because my heart still belongs to her. And her heart might belong to my brother.

Contains mature themes.

Angst.. too much angst..

I wanted to love this one, but it was just a bit too drawn out. How many times can bad choices keep you falling on your face before you realize that holding things in is really what keeps you failing. I loved the characters, the basis of the story, but the rubber band just stretched way too much for me.
