Jeremy is a college freshman ready to put his past behind him and make full use of a fresh start.

Their paths cross on the wrestling team and quickly realize there’s more to each other–and a specific more they share. But it’s not easy for two athletes to share what they do, especially with Beck’s goals and Jeremy’s past.
