Once upon a time, the Vlasta Vipers hockey team was so incredible — on and off the ice — they were almost mythical.
Back then, they were the undefeated conquerors of the rink.
Coveted prizes for Puck Bunnies.
Their reputation was ironclad until the wrong skates landed on the wrong feet.

To anyone on the outside looking in Crash appears confident and brash but that couldn’t be farther from the truth. He has been burned by love in the past which has him questioning his judgement when it comes to the men he allows in his life which has an impact on the present even if his feelings for Hugo that extend far beyond friendship.
Hugo is the perfect combination of sweet and swoony and is exactly who Crash needs in his life to show him that he deserves to be loved just the way he is.
