Brody Mitchell is a damn good hockey player and has the NHL contract to prove it. He loves the game, but he hates the hype, the spotlight and especially the puck bunnies who only want to score an athlete husband. He’s been burned before. He’s not looking to repeat that mistake. When he makes a hot connection with a beautiful brunette, he's not expecting forever. She doesn’t want to know his name and he’s more than happy not to give it.
She just got it all... but she can't keep him
As a brand-new sports reporter for the Philadelphia Record, Tara Downey should be more interested in tracking down a hot trade rumor than in how many times the hot stranger can rock her world. But after bombing out on an assignment, she can't resist a taste of him as a consolation…even if it’s only for one night.
Tara and Brody spend one amazing night in bed. But in the light of day, they find themselves on opposite sides of the boards. Will trust issues ruin their budding romance? Or will love win the day?
