NHL veteran player Kieran Marsh has had more relationships than trips to the sin bin, making him a player on and off the ice. And two years ago, I had a one night stand with him when I thought I would forever stay the anonymous girl in the hockey jersey.
But now my city has an expansion team, and guess who’s one of their star players?
Of course I accept an offer to go see the opening night game. I can’t stay away, even though hockey destroyed my family, and so much about Kieran reminds me of the worst things my father ever did to my mother.
And when Kieran sees me in the stands? I know nothing is going to be the same again. This is his game, and he knows how to win.
It may have been two years since Kieran spent an unforgettable night with Harper but it feels like yesterday. His attempts to find her were unsuccessful until he sees her at one of the games he is playing in and the one thing he knows is that he isn’t about to let her walk away a second time.
Harper has seen first hands the devastating effects that dating a hockey player can have. Despite her resolve to distance herself from him Kieran is persistent and determined to show her that he is a man she can depend on and trust with her heart.
Kiernan and Harper were so much fun together and I enjoyed seeing Harper open her heart to the man who knew that they were meant to be together. Hot chemistry and a little turmoil make this a heartwarming romance.
