Up next, we have signed paperbacks of Kata Čuić‘s First and Goal (Moving the Chains, #1) and Second Down (Moving the Chains, #2)
Eva Papageorgiou has one goal: to make it through her senior year of high school unseen and unscathed. But when her strategy to stay out of the limelight is derailed by rampant rumors, she’s forced to change tactics. Her new game plan is to keep everyone at arm’s length. Especially boys. So when she’s partnered up in class with the hot as hell varsity quarterback, she pushes and pushes.
Until he pushes back.
Rob Falls just wants to fit in. With his teammates, with his friends, with everyone. His image as the quintessential jock makes him feel like a fraud. Especially since it’s the only reason all the girls at school want him, except the one girl he dreams about. She wants nothing to do with him. When he’s forced to tutor the class pariah, he realizes it’s time to get in the game instead of standing on the sidelines.
She’s going to help him get exactly what he wants, whether she knows it or not.
Some memories stand the test of time.
Others, if we’re lucky, are forgotten forever.
Then there are those that are etched into our hearts, branded on our souls, and carried within us until the day we die.
She doesn’t remember the best and worst day of her life.
Eva Papageorgiou has no memory of the brutal attack she suffered at the hands of her would-be rapist—the last few days of her life wiped away completely. But the scars she bares hint at the trauma she endured.
She feels powerless and alone, no longer able to trust her own mind. The only certainty in her life is that everything is different. Until a friend reveals a secret, filling the holes of her memory.
Now Eva is determined to reclaim her life and her control over it.
The day he dreamed of was the one that cost him everything.
Rob Falls is stuck in a perpetual nightmare, unable to move past the horrific event that changed his and Eva’s lives forever. While friends and family urge him to overcome the tragedy, he withdraws, consumed with guilt and regret no one else—not even Eva—understands.
He may never earn the redemption he longs for, but he vows to help her feel safe once again.
Now Rob will do whatever he can to protect the girl he loves from anyone who might hurt her—even himself.
Eva longs to remember.
Rob wishes he could forget.
Even after everything that has come between them, they’re still drawn together.
But can two damaged souls build a future even as the secrets of the past carve new scars?
