She's the coach's brilliant daughter, clueless about love. He's the dethroned football star, ready to teach Romance 101.When dark secrets and sparks collide, there's no playbook for what happens next.
If life were a nerd parade, sixteen-year-old Harper O'Malley would be its grand marshal. This trumpet player's got a laundry list of accomplishments to her credit, but none of them include snagging a boyfriend. When a new guy finally catches Harper's eye, she'll stop at nothing to win his heart, even if it means asking for assistance from an unlikely source.
High school senior Ridley Estes's future depends on playing football for the University of Southern Kentucky. When his past catches up with him, Ridley will need more than just a scholarship to get his ticket to college. He needs the kind of help only a brainiac like Harper can provide.
Harper knows she's insane to agree to tutor Ridley in exchange for love lessons, but these are desperate times. Just when she sees promise with her crush, a national scandal rocks the SEC, and no one is safe from the fallout. Harper's family implodes from the aftershocks, dredging up devastating memories she'd rather keep buried.
Harper suddenly has everything to lose--her family, friends, and even her heart. Who can she trust? When the dust of the scandal settles, nothing will be the same. Including the girl who asked the most popular jock to teach her about love.
Award-winning author Jenny B. Jones returns to YA with a sweet, funny novel about first love and the power of letting go.
~ My Thoughts ~
Harper thinks she has it all figured out; her family, her future, and of course, guys like Ridley. Well, everything except for her love life which is non-existent. That's where Ridley comes in. He needs her help with school and she needs his to score a date with the boy she's been crushing on. Much to Harper's surprise, spending time with Ridley isn't as mind-numbing as she anticipated. In fact, the football star has a few surprises up his sleeve that come in the shape of little sisters, four-legged rescues, and swoon-worthy kisses.
Everything goes according to plan.
Until it doesn't.
When a scandal devastates Harper's family and leaves her with more questions than answers, she is forced to face the realization that, no one is perfect. Everyone makes mistakes, but it's how you handle the consequences that matters. And, sometimes, what--or who--we think we want isn't always what we need.
I'll Be Yours is a story about love, loss, forgiveness and ultimately, hope.
Fans of Pride and Prejudice and Friday Night Lights will enjoy this one!
