NHL Boston Hawks captain Austin Merrick used to be my boy-next-door. Now, he’s the man on my mind.
Our paths haven’t crossed in over a decade when I find myself back in Boston, desperate to save face in front of my ex-fiancé. With a devilish smirk and wicked blue eyes, Austin steps back into my life to be my plus one for a summer filled with weddings and events.
Should be fun and effortless, right?
Then why the need for rules?
And why do I crave his touch at the small of my back and wish for his kiss on a moonlit beach?
Suddenly, things begin to feel complicated, messy, and real. When I look at my first friend, I don’t see the boy-next-door, but the man I want to spend forever with.
If Austin learns the depth of my feelings, will he give us a real chance? Or are some rules better left unbroken?

After Chloe’s relationship imploded, she finds herself back home and dreading having to attend a wedding along where she will have to face the two people who deceived her. Reuniting with her childhood best friend and having him escort her is exactly the confidence boost she needs but sticking to their arrangement may be the biggest challenge of all.
Austin is the captain of the hockey team he plays for who determined years earlier that hockey was his focus and personal relationships were not in his future. Seeing Chloe again brings up all the feelings from the past and some new ones as well.
I enjoyed the camaraderie that Chloe and Austin share and seeing them open their hearts to the life and love they could have is sure to touch your heart.
