Title: Changing Forever (Rain 2, can be read as a stand alone)
Author: Lisa De Jong
Age Group: NA
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Cover Designer: Mae I Design
I’ve always let my past dictate my future, letting it paint a picture of exactly what I don’t want to be. Where I don’t want to end up.
Drake Chambers is as arrogant as I am stubborn. A college quarterback, a national star. I thought he was just another one of those guys … the type every girl should stay away from, but he’s carrying more than the weight of the football team on his shoulders.
He unravels the feelings and beliefs I’ve held onto for so long.
I thought we had it all figured out. Two people who’d finally found their happily ever after, but the past always has a way of sneaking into the present.
With one decision, everything changes … forever.

As I make my way across campus, I relax into the last few minutes of freedom before classes begin again. It’s the last of sanity before the stress of school compounds on top of the football practices I’ve had for weeks now. There’s a certain calm I feel when I’m on campus, but not on the football field or sitting in a big lecture hall listening to hours of worthless information.
Being at school also means I’m not at home, and any place is better than there. This is a different world, away from everything.
I’m always expected to be at the top of my game when I have the football in my hand. There are talents we are born with and others we learn, and for me, football is a little bit of both. My dad used to take me out in the backyard a couple times a week to throw his old pigskin around. I picked up everything he showed me quickly, and after a while, I could throw better than he could. Every time, no matter what I did, it was a perfect spiral.
Sometimes I wish I could hide from my talent. I wish I could blend in with every other college guy and not have all the weight on my shoulders. But this is what God gave me, and hopefully some day I’ll make enough money to take care of my mom and younger sisters. I have to be at my best for the next couple years to have my shot in the pros.
I just need to hold on a little longer.
I need to stay focused.
It’s just so fucking hard … I always have to be the hero, but when it bleeds into an expectation of perfection, it becomes too much. Some days I just can’t fucking take it anymore, and I want to disappear, to blend in. Some days, I don’t want to be Drake Chambers.
As I open the door to enter the lecture hall for Speech 101, I take a deep breath. It’s another semester. Another class I’ll have to drag my feet through. Three more years, I tell myself.
