Nathan Moore, a professional hockey player, needed a change. He got it from the hockey expansion draft when he was sent to Boise, Idaho. Leaving the bustling and chaotic city of Washington, D.C., which held the memories of gold-digging ex who eventually ended up with his teammate, he knew he needed more out of life. Idaho offered it. Fresh air, room to breathe, and nature as far as the eye could see. But when he ran into local coffee proprietor Veronica, his dreams of a bachelor-life went out the window, and he couldn’t see a future without this woman in it.
Will Nathan be able to slapshot his way into Veronica’s latte world?
What I learned after last year’s distractions cost my hockey team our entire season? No more screwing up. No more screwing, period. As the new team captain, I need a new philosophy: hockey and school now, women later. Which means that I, Hunter Davenport, am officially going celibate…no matter how hard that makes things.
But there’s nothing in the rulebook that says I can’t be friends with a woman. And I won’t lie—my new classmate Demi Davis is one cool chick. Her smart mouth is hot as hell, and so is the rest of her, but the fact that she’s got a boyfriend eliminates the temptation to touch her.
Except three months into our friendship, Demi is single and looking for a rebound.
And she’s making a play for me.
Avoiding her is impossible. We’re paired up on a yearlong school project, but I’m confident I can resist her. We’d never work, anyway. Our backgrounds are too different, our goals aren’t aligned, and her parents hate my guts.
Hooking up is a very bad idea. Now I just have to convince my body—and my heart.
Dean always gets what he wants. Girls, grades, girls, recognition, girls…he’s a ladies man, all right, and he’s yet to meet a woman who’s immune to his charms. Until Allie. For one night, the feisty blonde rocked his entire world—and now she wants to be friends? Nope. It’s not over until he says it’s over. Dean is in full-on pursuit, but when life-rocking changes strike, he starts to wonder if maybe it’s time to stop focusing on scoring…and shoot for love.

Happily ever after? Not on Kat Torella’s radar. She didn’t believe in it, at least not for her. More to the point, she wasn’t sure she was even built for love. Cautious where her heart is concerned, Kat instead focuses on her career as sports reporter for the local paper.
But when she meets him, Kat throws caution to the wind. After all, what girl wouldn’t want to spend a steamy night with her all-time NHL crush? Especially one with mesmerizing chocolate brown eyes, a swoon worthy smile, and shaggy sex hair.
Kris Lafleur, sexy star defenseman for the Pittsburgh Renegades ice hockey team has spent the last year dedicating himself to the game while getting over a disastrous relationship. A hopeless romantic, deep down Kris longs for a girl who is attracted to him and not his bank account.
After their sexy night together, Kat tries to make a graceful exit. After all, she knows there’s no happily ever after to see here. A guy like Kris Lafleur would never see a future with someone like her. But Kris has other ideas and he’s determined not to let Kat walk out of his life. His heart insists she’s the real deal, and he wants her, baggage and all.
While Kat battles her insecurities, Kris contends with interference from a well-meaning teammate who wants to save him from being burned again. And when it looks like history is repeating and trust is called into play, will their love be strong enough to survive?
