Hurdler Aileen Nessa surprised the university track and field world by signing with a small Division One NCAA university. Talented on the track and in the class room, she is headed to the University of Gatica. No one knows that the main reason she signed with the school is because of a top defensive back football player.
Away from her small Ohio hometown, she steps into a university town dedicated to sports and success. Trying to adjust to school life as a varsity athlete she learns there are perks and challenges because of her status.
Tyler Jensen, the boy she desperately wants to catch the attention of, seems to have forgotten all about what happened on Aileen’s recruiting trip last February. Devastated, she throws her frustration into the only thing she knows – track.
Will pushing everything to the limit create the fulfillment she so desperately wants, or will everything come crashing down before she reaches the first hurdle?
