Being hard is what Jack Slade is all about. He has no time for weaklings, especially not on his team. He is captain, and his new coach has helped him realize that anything that interferes with his game is not worth his time. Gem doesn't see it that way, though. She fancies Jack like mad, but she doesn't want to be second best and neither does her best friend, Christian, who thinks Jack is just a meathead. Gem knows there is more to Jack, but she doesn't know if that is enough to keep them together...
