Forbidden romance takes the court in this emotionally rich NBA sports romance from award-winning author Kennedy Ryan
She kissed the prince and he turned into a fraud. Now, her fairy tale is upside-down.
Iris DuPree meets August West in a sports bar during her last semester of college and their conversation of a lifetime sends sparks flying in every direction. The connection is undeniable...but the timing is all wrong. August is poised for the NBA draft, and Iris belongs to another man-basketball's "golden boy" and August's long-time rival.
The two go their separate ways, but they often recall that electric night and what could have been. While August has embarked on his all-star life, studded with wealth and fame, Iris's perfect public relationship has become a nightmare behind closed doors. A tarnished dream of fool's gold.
When August re-enters her life, the world seems briefly bright again, but Iris's darkest nights are not over yet. To survive, she must build her own strength and trust that her bond with August can endure after all this time.
Even when her fraudulent prince has vowed never to let her go.
