“Matchmaker” – My mom always told me, “The bigger you are, the harder you fall.” But as a professional athlete, I’ve never fallen in love. That doesn’t stop me from setting up my friends and watching their love stories unfold.
I believe in love, but I’m not interested in experiencing it myself. That is, until I met her.
Hollis Westbrooke is the daughter of my boss and the one person who turned down my proposition for a date. It was all a joke, but now I can’t stop thinking about her.
The problem? She’s not interested in players like me.
As I try to win her over, I realize that my biggest fall might be the one where I finally let love in.
