But when hot hockey player Zander shows me how good he is at talking bad, it sets off a firestorm of need hot enough to melt the ice on the rink he plays on.
I’m not good at relationships and have basically given up on men.
But a brief fling with a dirty talking hockey player sounds pretty good at the moment.
I didn’t expect to actually fall for him and his daughter.
I think he might be falling for me too.
Until I do that one thing that taps into his darkest fears and incinerates the fragile trust that’s built between us.
How can we possibly move forward after that?

How can I say no?
Luke just dumped his conniving fiancé and needs a shoulder to cry on.
I’ll always be there for him.
Problem is, I want him. I’ve always wanted him.
Then I see the king-sized bed.
And Luke starts pulling out all the plays.
His kisses are far more real than the ones I’ve imagined.
And the more we pretend, the more real it feels.
But come the end of the week, will our make-believe honeymoon be the end of a lifelong friendship?
Or the beginning of something much more?
I guess it’s time to find out.
Move in and help him take care of his daughter?
As crazy as that sounds, I agreed to the temporary arrangement—for the child’s sake.
Problem is, living with the guy I’ve crushed on since forever, is messing with my body as well as my brain.
And now, watching him grow as a man, seeing the bond between father and daughter build, I can’t help but want this family for myself.
But we’re just playing house, and Jonah isn’t interested in making this ready-made family the real deal…right?
