The Rebound

Rochester Riot Book 3


The first time I saw her, I stopped dead in my tracks. From her long blonde hair to her piercing gaze that can see straight through to my soul, she slayed me. My sweet, innocent Hannah. When I’m with her, I feel unstoppable. She’s my angel. I have to have her and I always get what I want. Even if it means putting my budding NHL career on the line. My addiction to her might ruin my chances to make the roster of the Rochester Riot.

I was passed over by an ignorant scout during my senior year of college but my skills are still inspiring. Almost as impressive as my chiseled body and ahem…other huge assets. I can stop any breakaway, keep the crease crystal clear and force the enemy’s attacking forwards to scream for their mama. I’ll master this open tryout to bring my pro hockey dream to fruition or die trying.

But my desire for Hannah puts my Cinderella second chance on the line. That and him. A criminal, raging alcoholic piece of sh*t. One I’m not proud of and never thought I’d see again once they locked him in the pen and threw away the key. I’m a front office executive and NHL wannabe – she’s the sister of my dreaded ex. On paper we don’t fit. But there’s one place where we fit. Like a glove.

Nothing is more important that my ultimate goal of becoming a professional athlete so I know I shouldn’t get involved with her. It’s too perilous. I can’t fall…risk losing my heart. But for the first time, I woman sees me. The real me. Not some high-class suit pumping and dumping women so fast they’re swirling around my body like a schizophrenic tornado. And I sure as hell want her. Her tempting curves beg me to take it all.

So I’ve been hiding something from her. The truth about my past. I have a secret that threatens to destroy our future. And so the confident executive turned rookie is actually afraid. Because if my family drama sees the light of day, it’s over.

Done.
