Dom Gianni takes a lot of punishment in the hockey rink and it’s a welcome penance for the guilt he lives with. Getting traded to the new NHL expansion team in Las Vegas sounds like the next level of hell in his already crumbling life, but he doesn’t have a choice; this is his last shot.
Molly McCarran is barely hanging on, certain her life will be cut short at the hand of her abusive husband. Death would be preferable to what she’s endured the last twenty years. So when she’s rescued by a sexy hockey player, who’s more than a decade younger, she’s confused about her feelings and skeptical of his intentions.
When Dom witnesses Molly getting beaten up by her husband, he’s ready to throw down his gloves and fight for her. If he can save her, maybe he can salvage himself too. But Molly isn’t about to trust another man—and Dom is already skating on thin ice with his NHL-mandated probation. If she can learn to trust him and hold on, they could find the peace they’ve been missing. If not, it might be the final buzzer for them both.
