My dreams of making it to the big league had finally come true,
But one wild night in a strip club which was clearly a mistake
Landed me squarely on the team’s bad boy list.
The PR manager is supposed to smooth it all over,
Too bad all I wanted was to get in trouble with her.
I wasn’t really the playboy they thought I was,
I just needed to find the right woman to set me straight.
Now I just have to prove I’m not what she thought.
I have the career I’ve always dreamed of,
Even if I have to deal with players who can’t seem to keep out of the news.
What’s more infuriating is the one player I want to hate the most I can’t stop thinking about.
The one whose voice makes me want to drop my panties at his feet.
I know all about his playboy ways,
But I also know the press can spin things to fit their narrative.
Is he really as innocent as he claims to be? Or will he throw a screw ball I never saw coming?
The sound of the gavel crashing down,
Has my life flashing before my eyes.
Learning to play ball.
Falling in love,
Marrying an incredible woman and starting a family
Becoming a starting pitcher for the Indianapolis Lightning.
Everything I ever wanted... Until I struck out.
The same success that gave me the life I dreamed of,
Took it all away.
I'd do anything for a second chance,
Even throw the perfect pitch.
A signature on a piece of paper...
It binds you to someone, or it can tear them away.
It broke my heart to file the papers.
Gutted me to sign them.
But this isn't the life I envisioned.
Tired of competing to be his number one priority,
I had to walk away from the man I loved.
I needed to be strong for our girls, for me.
Life goes on.
People can change.
Now he wants a second chance.
But can I forgive the man who threw it all away, and trust that he won’t do it again?
I had the perfect bachelor's life.
The greatest job in the world, all while being paid millions to do it.
Until I became a dad overnight.
My world turned upside down,
I went from ballfields and bars to dirty diapers and bottles.
I turned to my best friend for help but ended up with his little sister.
Now, all I want is the one woman I can't have.
She's the curveball I never saw coming.
The one woman I'm willing to commit to and change my old ways for.
I just have to show her that we can be a family.
Indianapolis was my fresh start.
A new place near my family.
When my brother's best friend ended up with a surprise baby dropped on his doorstep,
I was the perfect nanny for the job.
Everything was falling into place,
If only I could keep my mind and hands off the playboy baller dad.
Working for someone you are attracted to is hard.
But when he's your brother's best friend and you live with him?
Talk about impossible.
Fatherhood changed him, but is it enough to give us a chance at a happily ever after?
My future was all mapped out.
Graduate high school.
Make a professional hockey team’s roster.
Marry my high school sweetheart.
I had it all within my grasp;
Everything was falling into place.
Except for the distance,
And our conflicting schedules.
How can we both follow our dreams when the roads keep taking us in different directions?
My future was all mapped out.
Graduate high school.
Land my dream residency.
Marry my high school sweetheart.
My dream took me to the opposite coast, but my heart just wasn’t in it anymore.
Could I find a new path to my goal and still find happiness?
Was thinking we could make this work just another rookie move?
Full blurb and cover to be revealed at a later date.
The one word I didn’t think I’d have to accept so soon—retirement.
Never playing again was my new reality, along with all the other symptoms that came along with my career-ending injury.
Just as I'm learning to deal with my new normal, life throws me another challenge, but this one might just be the game-changer that alters my life for the better.
I've always been focused. School. Graduation. Opening my own business.
I didn't see myself settling down anytime soon, I had an empire to build.
I definitely didn’t expect a newly retired hockey player would bulldoze his way into my life.
Maybe it's time I focus on more than just my business.
The more time we spend together, the more I realize I can have more than one focus.
Sometimes, when one chapter closes, it makes room for another…
New city, new job, and maybe one day, a new love. She just didn’t realize how quickly that could all happen until she walked into a tattoo shop, finally ready to get the ink she’d wanted since her fiancé died, nearly four years ago.
Ethan O’Neill had everything. Until one day, he didn’t.
After an off-ice injury stripped him of his hockey career, he started over in life, pursuing his other passion—tattoos. He’d never been the kind of guy to want to settle down, but that all changed one day, when a knock-out beauty strolled into his shop and into his life.
An instant attraction and a little bit of ink is the perfect mix for two people ready for change.
Grounded, selfless, giving…Those are all the ways my family and friends have described me. Are they right? Possibly. But, I’m so much more, and need some passion and excitement in my life. My best friend is moving on and I want that someone special to share all that life has to offer. Let it be known that I, Kinley Williams, want the right someone special. So why did he have to crash into me? The one man who is so clearly wrong for me. Then again, he doesn’t seem like anything the tabloids claim him to be. So is he really all that wrong?
What happens when both want more, but neither will tell the other?
Richard Murphy has been in the NHL for fifteen years, playing the game he loves. But with retirement looming in the next few years, he’s ready to settle down and start a family. There’s only one woman he wants that with, but she’s put him firmly into the friends—with benefits—category. Can he change her mind and heart, and prove to her he’s playing for keeps?
Madison O’Neal has been a lover of sports since she was young. She and her dad bonded over them, both during and after her mother lost her battle with breast cancer. Her love of sports led to a successful career as a sports agent. As much as she loves her job, what she really wants is a family—and someone to call her own. But the one man she’s head-over-heels in love with has her in the friends—with incredible benefits—category.
Can Madison and Richard find their way through the murky waters of friendship and become the lovers they secretly want to be?
I believed in the fairytale.
The “till death do us part” fantasy little girls grow up believing in.
Unfortunately for me, my happy ending was divorce, and learning to find myself all over again.
I was done with men and relationships, or so I thought, until a stubborn hockey player was determined to show me what love could really be.
But could I fall for the fairytale a second time, and trust that he would protect my heart?
From the moment I laid eyes on her, I knew she was made for me.
She was broken and I was determined to put her back together again.
I was here to prove she could have that fairytale love story after all.
To show her someone else can protect her heart and love her unconditionally.
Now I just have to convince her that someone is me.
It all started with a second chance, for Becca to just say yes to forever.
And is Kinley still living the dream after scoring the player?
What does life have in store for Madison and Richard, now that they decided playing for keeps is much more satisfying than friends with benefits.
When Mark vowed to Laura he would protect her heart, he meant it from the very beginning. He was all-in, forever, no matter what.

Hockey is my life.
I left Sweden for it five years ago.
I’ve finally been given a shot to prove myself, and I refuse to let anything jeopardize that.
No distractions ~ especially not Julia, the stunning woman I can't seem to get out of my mind. Only problem is, she's my coach's daughter.
I grew up around hockey.
Lived and breathed it, thanks to my dad’s job.
I never thought I’d fall for a player.
Especially one my dad coaches.
But there's just something about Beckett that draws me in.
Can I convince him he can be the hotshot goalie and find love, without having to choose just one?
The hardest shot to defend is the one you never take. I just hope he realizes he can have it all.
