Wade Bennett is the younger brother of Colton Bennett, who happens to be the all-around perfect brother. In high school, Colt was a star linebacker while Wade was the punter, an important job without all of the glory. Colt also got all of the girls while Wade focused on school, family and his music. When Charlene Martinez—the only girl he’s ever truly wanted—falls for Colt, Wade decides to take his chances with music and goes on the road. Leaving behind his family, his new best friend, Rafe, and Charlene, who has feelings for Wade she’s never allowed herself to feel.

He’s found success on a small scale and has enough money to make a nice living, even if he knows he’ll never compete with his big brother. After Coach Carr has his heart attack, Wade comes home to help the man who helped him make the decision to go all those years ago.
Now coming home is all he wants…especially since a newly divorced Charlene is single again after divorcing Colt. And Wade is no longer a boy unwilling to fight for what—and who—he needs…
