WATTPAD BOOKS EDITION. Sometimes home isn't a place, it's a person. From the moment their eyes met, Ellie knew Leroy Lahey would be her destiny. Handsome and ripped, there's just something about Baylor University's soon-to-be star quarterback that makes him impossible to resist. Consumed by a passion neither can understand, Leroy and Ellie spend the summer together. Left senseless and overwhelmed by his touch, Ellie experiences a world of desire she never imagined possible. Safe in Leroy's arms, Ellie begins to see a life beyond high school: going to college, starting her own business, having a family. But when life-altering news shakes them to their cores, Leroy and Ellie must discover if their passion is enough to help them get through what might possibly be the greatest challenge of their lives. Tay Marley returns to tell a heartwarming and heartbreaking story of Drayton's parents and the summer that changed everything in the prequel to The QB Bad Boy and Me.
