Status: Finished  |  Genre: Romance  |  House: Booksie Classic
Dakota Scott has just completed her probation after serving time for committing a violent crime. Getting a full ride to attend Pacific University is an opportunity of a lifetime, if she can keep her volatile temper in check. The Pacific's Mentorship Program matches her with Noah Rivers, the co-captain of the Pacific Football Team. As far as Dakota’s concerned, he’s just a replacement Probation Officer. But when a former rival crosses her path Dakota’s plans to keep her past to herself begin to unravel.

I'd really appreciate some feedback on this first chapter. Is it too long? Does it need more of a cliffhanger at the end? We don't meet the male protagonist for another chapter, would it be better
to meet him sooner? Thanks for your fedback.
