The Off-Chance of Me and You

He’s an athlete at the top of his game, and I’m the girl he left behind. Now he’s asking for a second chance, but this time, I’m calling the shots.


To the world, Jason Meyer is the NBA golden boy. 

To me, he’s the guy I met on my first day at college. The friend who spouted trivia while I danced. The one who got away—no, who left. Without a single word.

So when Jason shows up in town, I remind myself that I don’t have time to waste on another heartbreak. Not with two jobs, a sister, and a sudden visa issue to handle. 

Only, how do I say no to the one guy I’ve ever wanted? And how do I choose between him and the home I’ve missed for so long?


Everyone sees me as this hotshot basketball player. No one knows I never wanted to be one in the first place—except for Tala Reyes. 

Fate puts me right in her path again, and she’s not buying my apologies. But I’ve got a plan.

Step 1: Make up for my six-year disappearing act. 

Step 2: Charm my way past the friend zone.

Step 3: Prove this isn’t just an off-season fling.

Tala thinks we belong in different worlds. To me, we’re endgame. Now watch me win her over.
