About this ebook

Much to my utter dismay, the Portland Icehawks chose me in the expansion draft, and now my estranged father is my hockey coach. No one on the team knows he's my dad. They think he’s a distant relative I don't get along with. They’re right about that last part. We hate each other. He blames me for the death of my sister, and I blame myself, too. He's unfairly targeted me, and his constant criticism is destroying my confidence and my game.

The only thing I look forward to is my time working with the underprivileged, especially with one feisty, attractive female, but neither of us do relationships because those require trust and commitment, and we're too scarred to take the risk.

Can we conquer our demons so I can rescue her from the streets, and she can rescue me from my past before we're beyond saving?

I received a complimentary early release e-book prior to release and am voluntarily leaving a review. This was such a wonderful story about two very lost and lonely people who are hurting and who find each other. I really loved this story so much. It was a unique story within the hockey world. It does have a little bit of insta love/lust on Grady's side.

Neither of them is looking for a relationship, in fact it’s the last thing either of them need however sometimes fate puts a person in your life for a reason. I was quickly drawn into Grady and Aspen’s story. It touched on a number of harsh realities in life and those were handled with dignity, Defending is a story of courage, of love and hope and of overcoming the challenges that life often throws in your path. It was well written and I look forward to reading more in the series.

Grady found himself in a personal situation when he started on the new team. He thought he could keep his connection to his coach a secret, but his grumpiness did not fool anyone. Aspen came into his life and brought light. Together, they had to work through past hurts to trust each other and those around. It was very entertaining as Grady struggled through his feelings and realized that his perspective may have been the problem. I did enjoy this story. My unsolicited review.
