My only goal is to heal from this concussion and get back on the ice-until Nina Callaghan shows up at my door asking for hockey lessons. She's my best friend's kid sister, which puts her in the hands-off zone, so I used to tease her without mercy-the ballerina on ice-until a knee injury grounded her. But little Nina is all grown up now, and wants something from me, and I sure as hell want something back. Now it's game on, and I'm pulling out all the plays.
Asking my old nemesis for a favor is the last thing I want to do, but when my editor charges me with writing a romantic series about hot hockey players, I have no choice but to turn to Cocky Cole Cannon, and he didn't earn that handle from flashing his infamous grin. When he agrees to teach me, little did I know he'd have a hidden agenda. I want to say no, but when the Playmaker introduces me to his off-ice moves, the only word on my lips is yes.
No way can I fall for the girl I've been crushing on since...forever. Not only will her brother kill me, we don't belong in each other's world. I should have kept things in the neutral zone, but when one sweet taste becomes a game changer, I fear it could uncover everything I spent years hiding, and destroy Nina right along with it.
