He was too young for her. A decade too young.

 

Rebecca Stravokraus was the premier publicist in the professional sports. She was extremely smart, capable, and could spin a story like a spider spins its web. She also didn’t lack in confidence.

 

But there was one thing she couldn’t do.

 

L.O.V.E.

 

It was the ultimate dirty word, the one emotion that made men, women, and all variations in between turned into possessed, insane beings.

 

Humanity was not built to love. They were built to work, to play hockey, to fuc—

 

Cough. To have a great time between the sheets.

 

That was enough—it had been enough.

 

Until Kevin declared that Rebecca was what he wanted, until they spent several glorious nights in bed together . . . until she began to feel.

 

That couldn’t be. Not now. Not in the future. Not ever.

 

But Kevin had decided on her and if there was one thing she’d learned about stubborn, alpha hockey players, it was that they didn’t give up.

 

And Rebecca had to admit that in this case she didn’t want Kevin to give up.

She was a laughingstock.

 

A hippie. A tree-hugger. A granola, crunchy, millennial who worried about how her food was grown and what she put into her body and GMOs and . . .

 

Had a secret chocolate addiction.

 

Because even though she cared about all of those things, a girl had to live too. And Rebecca couldn’t live her life without 90% Cacao Super Dark Chocolate.

 

Addictions aside, it was her job to help keep the players on the San Francisco Gold healthy and she was damned good at it, so her hippie, granola background (and maybe also her PhD in Nutritional Sciences) had come in handy, at least to some degree.

 

Especially since the team had taken home the league’s top prize last season.

 

Unfortunately, not everyone thought her contributions were important.

 

In fact, some people—cough one Dr. Gabe Carter—thought her position with the team was unnecessary. He thought her diet was too restrictive, her meal plan too out there. He’d actually told Rebecca that her program hadn’t been an important factor in the Gold’s successful season.

 

But dammit, she knew she’d made a difference with the team, knew her work was important, and it didn’t matter that Gabe was gorgeous and a talented doctor, he still didn’t have any right to—

 

Kiss her.

 

No.

 

Kiss her or make her feel small.

 

Yes, that. The second one. He was a jerk. She didn’t like him or care about his opinions and she definitely wasn’t in love with him. Definitely hadn’t been in love with him the moment she’d laid eyes on him—

 

Sigh.

 

She definitely was.

 

And to make matters worse? Gabe knew.

Max Montgomery was at the height of his career, playing the best hockey of his life, and lucky enough to have a starting spot on a team that was actually a contender for the Cup.

 

And one by one his friends were falling in love.

 

Love. Now that was a dirty four-letter word if he’d ever heard one.

 

Max had experienced love and all of its aftereffects and where had that gotten him?

 

Lonely, living in an apartment, and paying alimony to a woman who’d left him at the merest sign of a hiccup in their marriage.

 

His only bright spot was his son. Brayden had moved back in with him a few months ago, after his mother had taken off to God knew where. Max loved having him home, but with his son only seven and him on the road for forty-two games a year, they’d struggled. Still, they’d found a way to make it work.

 

But then Brayden threw Max a completely new curve ball.

 

He wanted Max to find a wife.

 

Max had been there, done that, got the crappy T-shirt as a souvenir. No way would he make himself vulnerable like that again, no matter how much his son wanted it.

 

A puppy was a perfectly viable alternative, right?

 

At least that was what he’d been thinking until he met Angelica Shallows, sister to the team’s Physical Therapist guru, Mandy, and a brilliant engineer in her own right. She was gorgeous, smart, but had shadows in her eyes.

 

Max knew all about shadows, knew they were meant as a sign for him to stay away.

 

What was that about the best intentions paving the road to hell? Max may have wanted to stay away, may have wanted to abide the warning signs in Angie’s eyes, but—

 

The real trouble began when found that he couldn’t do either of those things.

 

She was a laughingstock.

 

A hippie. A tree-hugger. A granola, crunchy, millennial who worried about how her food was grown and what she put into her body and GMOs and . . .
