He’s cool as ice and hot AF.
Jake Mozik has fought his way back from a possible career-ending injury and has returned to the Redtails focused and ready to reclaim his former glory as half of the best defensive duo in the league. But his attraction to the fierce Faith is unexpected and distracting.
Faith doesn’t usually fall for overly confident, uber sexy jocks. But when she does, apparently she falls pretty damn hard. Jake is so not her type. Or so she thinks. Until he shows up to volunteer at the alternative school where she works and she sees a different side of the normally cocky athlete. He’s kind and patient and— Damn it, she is not falling for this guy. She’s rebuilding her life after a near-fatal accident and there’s no room for a man.
Jake is determined to make room in Faith’s life. And once he sets his mind on something, he doesn’t let go until he gets what he wants. And he wants it all…

Jake is a professional hockey player who is trying to rehab his leg after a near career ending injury. It isn’t only himself who is dependent on his success, so he is determined and focused to be back in his old playing form sooner rather than later.
After a car accident Faith was told that her paralysis would be permanent and that wasn’t the only loss she was dealt. With the help of physio therapy she was not about to just accept their diagnosis and is now able to walk.
They knew each other casually through mutual friends and attended therapy together but it was when they started spending time together that they really got to know each other. They both have strong, resilient personalities but because of her past Jake will need to be patient and understanding if he wants her to open up her heart and trust him. I have enjoyed this series and this book is no exception.
