Sometimes love takes balls. Newly retired championship footballer Simon Wood is taking on his next challenge. His plan for a charity to provide funding for underprivileged children to pursue football as a career has passed its first hurdle: he has backers and an executive consultant. Now it's time to get the ball rolling. Lucien Morel, heir to the multibillion-euro Morel Corporation, is shocked--and thrilled--to learn his father has volunteered him as consultant to a fledgling football charity. Better yet, the brains behind it all is heartthrob Simon Wood, his teenage idol and crush. Although Simon and Lucien get off on the wrong foot, it's not long before they're getting along like a house on fire--sparks included. But with the charity under public scrutiny, can their romance thrive?
