How is Going For a Ride connected to Sapphire Falls?
Nick Hansen-former college star wide-receiver is passing through Sapphire Falls with his summer job at his uncle’s carnival company.
Kelsey Brown-graphic designer, was born and raised in Sapphire Falls. Her aunt is Phoebe Spencer who used to babysit her and has all kinds of dirt on her.
Star wide receiver Nick Hansen is used to a stadium full of adoring fans after the glory of four winning college football seasons, but that’s all in the past when he flubs the tryouts that would make him an NFL draft pick. Now he’s spending the summer working for his uncle’s traveling carnival company and trying to figure out who he is without football.
Free-spirited Kelsey Brown returns to her hometown of Sapphire Falls, Nebraska for the annual festival and a much needed break to figure out her next career move—follow her corporate advertising job in its relocation or feed her artistic soul with the photography that she loves. But when she discovers her long-time football hero crush is working the festival, she quickly decides she’s going for a ride. With him.
Sizzling summer nights in Sapphire Falls soon lead to a future neither of them could have imagined. But can two very different people follow their dreams together?
