In the Grasp: A Second Chance Romance


He was my first love and my greatest heartbreak. Now he’s my assignment. 

I’ve worked too hard to get my dream job at the largest paper on the west coast, and I won’t let Jack Fuller, the league’s most notoriously private quarterback ruin this chance for me. But the moment we lock eyes, all those old feelings come rushing back in a way I’m completely unprepared for and instead of holding onto my hurt, I find myself giving him another chance. 

When I push back against writing  the article, my bosshole editor threatens to get what he wants, one way or another. The only way I can protect Jack is to spin the story myself. Will Jack be able to forgive me when I tell him what I’ve done? 


A reporter and an extremely private quarterback shouldn’t mix, but she’s not just any reporter—she’s my ex and the only woman I’ve ever loved. 

Paige O’Malley has owned my heart since I was sixteen years old, but I was a dumb, cowardly kid and let her go when things got hard. Now she’s here and I know I only have one chance to win her back. I refuse to lose her again. 

Until I’m blindsided by an article I never saw coming and suddenly I question if any of it was real or if she was just using me for a story the entire time. 

In the Grasp is the first steamy standalone contemporary sports romance in the LA Wolves series.
