Out of Bounds

This isn't going to be a slam dunk.   (September 2012)

Former basketball star Wes Fallon owes his brother everything. So when Deacon asks him to track down some missing charitable donations, Wes is on it. For the first time, the accident that ended his career looks like a godsend...until Wes encounters Posy Jones.

Will he be forced to choose between the woman he’s falling in love with and the brother he would risk anything for? Hopefully not...because his choice might surprise them all.
