The sequel to The Bad Boy and the Tomboy continues the love story of Macy Anderson and Sam Cahill as they face new challenges and new opportunities.
Macy Anderson and Sam Cahill are embarking on a new adventure, attending university on soccer scholarships while figuring out what comes next for them both.
Macy’s life has always been her group of friends—specifically Jasmine and Andrew—but now they’re all split up. Macy’s worried that the world that she’s always known, that has helped her become the person she is now, is over, and she’s discovering that facing the adult world of college and dating and friendships growing apart is harder than she thought it would be.
Sam is also finding it hard to adjust to this new phase of life. There are the pressures of university, other people, and secrets from his past he wants to keep hidden from Macy, all putting a strain on their relationship.
As Macy and Sam begin to tackle their decisions, Macy realizes she will have to answer the question: is their relationship worth fighting for or is it game over?
