All retired NFL star Nasir St. Cyr wants is to be respected more than for his athletic talent on the field. To be seen as more than a fatherless boy with a troubled past. To be seen as a man who can lead a city. And to not lose the only woman he's ever loved.
All single parent Regina Hargrove wants is to be respected as a hard-working woman. To be seen as worthy of walking by Nasir's side. To not be judged for her choices and past mistakes. And to be totally owned by the only man she craves but doesn't entirely trust.
All he has is six months.
Nasir is on borrowed time to gain the city's trust and her heart. As he battles two powerful families for a seat at the head of the table, old wounds are re-opened, and new revelations threaten to destroy the love of the woman he needs by his side.
If he only realizes her love is all the power he needs before it's too late.
His time to love, her time to thrive.
