He was the cockiest hockey player I knew.
And my brother’s best friend.
But I needed to learn about the game, and he was down with a concussion.
I didn’t realize he had an agenda of his own.
One that involved showing me his off-ice plays.
I should have said no.
Should have kept things in the central zone.
But one sweet taste was a game changer, and the only words on my lips were yes.
Until a lifetime of secrets spilled out…
All books in the Players on Ice series can be read as standalones:

The Trouble Maker
The Rule Breaker
He’s different now.
A beautifully scarred soul.
It does little to extinguish the heat between us.
I want him. He wants me.
Except he’s taken on the role of my protector.
I’m not having any of that.
Not when I’m the only woman who can soothe the savage beast inside him.
Both on and off the ice, I’m known as the Wingman. When it comes to my teammates, I’m the ice breaker, happy to help them look good with the ladies, and once I set the play in motion, my job is to disappear. I have zero problems fading into the background. Hell, being invisible saved my ass more than once in foster care. Now, a hot little nurse has asked me to be her wingman, but the uncertainty in her big, brown eyes slay me. I know that feeling—the fear of rejection—all to well, and for once, watching from the sideline is a no go.
When it comes to relationships, I need all the help I can get. When Rider agrees to be my buffer, I happily put myself in his capable hands. It isn’t his fault my date goes south, but the tough as nails hockey player takes it personal. Under his wing, I find the freedom to let go, and the joy of having it accepted. But can two people, one afraid he’s unlovable and the other afraid to love, trust in themselves enough to realize this could be their shot at happily ever after?
