Making Her Mark

RACHEL BASSETT

I left the family horse stud behind at 16 to pursue a career as a jockey. I’ve been killing it in a male-dominated industry, and now all my hard work has paid off—my first group one win, the biggest success of my career. But I’m not celebrating. My girlfriend just dumped me in front of a crowded pub, and now I don’t even have a home to go to. The only saving grace is Allira, who I haven’t seen since school, who has offered me a place to stay. If only her hot-as-hell brother would stop visiting—I’m swearing off relationships, with men and women alike, to focus on my career.

JACOB MULLAGH

I might be a top AFL player, but what I really want to do when my footy career is over is open up my own law firm. My teammates call me ‘Lawless’, but I’m anything but. I work hard to keep my public image sparkling clean; for the sake of my football career and my long term future. But now my foolish friends, and that woman—that stunning, bold, brash, athletic, beautiful woman staying at my sister’s house—are going to put it all in jeopardy. I can’t risk my reputation for the sake of the ones I love … can I?
