My dad has been the coach of the Charleston Coyotes for as long as I can remember. All the time I’ve spent in ice rinks has taught me two things:
1.) I will NEVER date a hockey player.
As a single mom, it’s not like I have time for romance anyway.
2.) Nothing smells worse than hockey players after a game.
And I work as a dog groomer, so I have experience with smelly animals.
It’s amazing how quickly my rules are forgotten when Darius walks into my pet salon.
Tall, dark, and tattooed with rippling muscles and a perfect smile must be my kryptonite, because I find myself agreeing to go out with him.
But we’re both keeping secrets we’re not ready to share. And when they finally come out, everything changes between us.
I do my best to keep my distance from him.
Yet, the more I fight my feelings, the more I find myself wanting the winger.
Although Darius may have brought his dog in for a grooming once he meets Evie, the groomer, he leaves with so much more. There is no denying the attraction he feels for her and he likes the fact that she wants to be with him for who he is and not his career.
Evie is trying to pursue her dreams while being the best mother she can be. The one rule she has is that she doesn’t want to date a hockey player. By the time they realize that he plays for the team her father coaches feelings are involved and that isn’t the only complication they must overcome.
A cute dog, a delightful daughter and two engaging characters take us on a fun and romantic journey that has you looking forward to more stories set around the Charleston Coyotes.
