She’s trying to escape her past. He wants to be the man to save her… I should be enjoying life as a college freshman. I should be pursuing my dream of becoming a veterinarian. I should be working hard to make sense of my precalculus math class. I shouldn’t be waking up my college roommate with screaming nightmares. I shouldn’t be flashing back, reliving the three weeks of hell I barely survived last year. And I definitely shouldn’t be spending time with sexy player Marcus Reid. But engineering student Marcus is the only one keeping me from failing my math course, so I grudgingly let him into my life. I never expect the king of hookups will share his painful past. Or that I’ll tell him my secrets in return, opening up and trusting him in a way I thought I’d never be able to again. When our fragile future together is threatened by a stalker I thought was locked away for good, Marcus is determined to protect me—and I’m determined to protect Marcus...even if that means pushing him away. This novel was previously published by a traditional publisher under the same title. An addictive, gripping journey of hope, healing, and finding forgiveness. I could not put this book down!

Born in Lake Charles and raised in the nearby town of Sulphur, David speaks vividly of his unique family upbringing and his experiences while growing up in Southwest Louisiana. He discusses with passion how hunting, fishing, rodeo, baseball and football were all integral parts of everyday life for the hard-living, God-fearing people in this rural Cajun community. You'll be introduced to high school coaching legend, Shannon Suarez, and to many of David's teachers, coaches and teammates who he loved and respected. Voted Louisiana's All-State quarterback and Outstanding Offensive Player at the age of 16, David was recruited away from Louisiana State University by Texas A&M's Emory Bellard to play football for the Fightin' Texas Aggies. It was a decision David would feel extremely remorseful about only months later. This recruitment by Bellard of the pass-happy left-hander to quarterback his ground-oriented Wishbone offense immediately created tensions between the two. These philosophical differences would remain unresolved and personality clashes between the two would quickly ensue. Their estranged relationship and the reasons for it would negatively affect every football team at A&M for years to come. Now for the first time, David recounts in his own words this controversial story in splendid detail with no holds barred. He fully examines the contentious relationship with his college coach, the in-house cover-ups regarding his injuries, and the needles masking their pain. He talks with anguish about the guts and stamina it took to withstand the pressures of being a four-year starting quarterback at this major university. David doesn't mince words regarding any individual or situation he was confronted with. He takes you visually both onto the playing field and into the smoky back rooms with equal flair and intensity. Rocky, Rudy and One on One, please step aside. You ain't seen nothin' yet.
