As the backup goalie for the Philadelphia Colonials, Tim Stanton earned his nickname “Tank” by being an immovable force in net. Hockey has always come first in his life but, at thirty-one, he has an expiration date practically stamped on his ass. It’s time to make hard decisions about his future. Retire on his terms or play until his body gives out? And if he stays in net, will he miss his shot to pursue the woman he loves?
As the daughter of an NHL Legend and the Colonials’ GM, Gabby Mitchell has had to work twice as hard to prove herself as the team’s public relations director. Dating a player could be career suicide, especially one on her own team. But no one has ever matched up to the quiet, broody hunk of a goalie who happens to be her brother’s best friend. When Gabby dumps her most recent mistake, a chance encounter with Tim leads to a stolen, steamy kiss…and a full-blown secret affair.
Gabby and Tim have skated around their feelings for years, but now their passion is reaching a boiling point. Will Tim’s uncertain future and a scandal involving Gabby’s brother tank their relationship before they have a chance to score their happily-ever-after?
