It was supposed to be one fake date…
When sexy-as-sin Harper Henderson launches profanities into the night sky from the balcony below mine, I’m forced to intervene. I may be a professional hockey player with a playboy reputation, but I’m also a good guy. Charming and affable with unrivaled cheekbones and a lack of serious commitments (save for hockey),
I make an impressive plus-one.
Volunteering to be Harper’s date to her dreaded ten-year high school reunion is easy.
Pretending not to fall for her when our innocent kisses turn passionate is a little more challenging.
But when Harper returns the fake date favor and accompanies me to my parents’ anniversary party, everything changes. She garners my dad’s respect and effortlessly mingles with my childhood friends. She eases the familial pressure I drown under and makes me crave the things I used to laugh off.
Tangling up with Harper was supposed to be a fun way to pass the summer. So, why does it feel like she’s the real prize? The elusive, fleeting kind of real I’ve avoided for years?
And how can I prove that this playboy wants a different kind of reward?
One that sounds a lot like commitment…

Harper enjoys her marketing job with the Knoxville Coyotes and has surrounded herself with a great group of friends and has moved forward from the worst betrayal of her life. All she wanted was to avoid her high school reunion, but that decision has been taken out of her hands but when she vocalized her frustrations, she didn’t expect her neighbor to offer her a solution she can’t turn down.
Damien is a professional hockey player who isn’t looking for love or a relationship but that doesn’t mean he isn’t attracted to Harper. Agreeing to be her date for her high school reunion went so well that she agreed to be his date for a family function but as they spend time together and get to know each other’s past their relationship is starting to feel far from casual.
I really enjoyed seeing the relationship unfold between Harper and Damien as they faced all the challenges that were coming their way and showed that together they can overcome anything.
