After eighteen years in the hockey league, I’m feeling like an old man.
I feel every bump and bruise in ways I never have before.Add to that, my team isn’t playing well, my passion for the game waning, and another run to the Cup isn’t looking likely.
But then, in the most unexpected place, I bump into Devon.
The most beautiful girl I’ve ever seen, and an absolute firecracker at that. The more I see her, the more I want her.
She’s a bigger high than any drug and a thousand times more addictive. I cannot get enough of her.
It doesn’t take me long to realize I need to have her. That I need to claim her as my own.
Devon has lit a fire in me I haven’t felt in a long time and has reignited my passion not just for the game, but for life as well. She helps elevate my play on the ice, which, in turn, helps my team as a whole play better.
Just when everything seems to be turning around, my legs are knocked out from under me when I find myself at the center of a scandal that ties directly back to Devon. A scandal that threatens everything I’ve spent a lifetime building.
A scandal that could destroy my legacy.
Even worse, somebody is obsessed with her. Someone who mistakes her kindness for something else.
I love this sport. I really do.
And while I’ve worked so damned hard to get to where I am, none of it matters if I don’t have Devon. None of it.
I’m not a guy prone to violence or quick to anger.
I generally reserve my aggression on the ice, but when it comes to Devon’s safety…
All bets are off.
