A champion athlete must learn to run toward a different prize.
Matt Dallimore’s life is over. Faced with the inability to walk and months of rehabilitation after a car accident, his future looks bleak. Not only has he lost the ability to run like the wind, but seeing his scarred and atrophied legs every day is a devastating reminder of all he’s lost. World records and Olympic gold are worthless when he can’t even do what he was born to do.
Physiotherapist Brie Mahoney is the epitome of joy. After a cancer scare forces her to confront her mortality, she can’t help but live each day with gratitude. As long as she still has breath in her lungs, she is determined to count each day a blessing. That is until she finds herself taking over the treatment of the champion sprinter and her celebrity crush, Matt Dallimore. His gruff attitude and monosyllabic responses don’t align with the amicable man she’s seen on television, but she’s determined to break through his wall of self-preservation and show him there is hope.
Brie knows he’s hurting, yet she yearns for Matt to realise he is worth far more than worldly accolades. When circumstances bring them together, how can Brie keep her emotions in check and guard her heart when she’s admired Matt from afar for so many years?
