We fell hard for the Friday night football, field parties, breakups, makeups and most of all West and Maggie’s romance in UNTIL FRIDAY NIGHT. Then in UNDER THE LIGHTS, Willa, Gunner and Brady tangled up our hearts and then launched a long pass that delivered a touchdown romance. Ever since we turned the last page, we’ve been dying to discover what’s next (and which characters from the series will be featured!) in this series that’s a mashup of the small-town drama of Friday Night Lights and the swoon-worthy romance of Abbi’s Vincent Boys series. Needless to say, we’re thrilled to reveal the cover, the characters and the storyline for the next book, AFTER THE GAME! The book will release on August 22, 2017, but in the meantime, you can feast your eyes on this gorgeous cover!

AFTER THE GAME

Two years ago, Riley Young fled from Lawton, Alabama. When Riley accused Rhett, the son of the town’s prominent founding family, of rape, everyone called her a liar and said she had no option but to leave. Now she’s back, but she’s not at Lawton High finishing up her senior year. She’s at home raising the little girl who no one believed was Rhett’s.

Rhett is off at college living the life he worried he might lose when Riley accused him when she returns to Lawton to help her parents take care of her grandmother, who is suffering from Alzheimer’s. But the town still hasn’t forgotten their hate for Riley, and she hasn’t forgotten the way they turned on her when she needed them most.

When golden boy Brady Higgens finds Riley and her daughter Bryony stranded on the side of the road in a storm, he pulls over and gives them a ride. Not because he cares about Riley, of course, but because of the kid.

But after that simple car ride, he begins to question everything he thought he knew.

Could Brady believe Riley and risk losing everything?
