Grumpy as Puck
The first book in a new romantic comedy series by USA Today bestselling author Elizabeth Lynx about a hockey player who was anything but nice. When he needed the help of his teammate's sister, the sweet-as-pie local veterinarian, to save his dog, he wondered if his secret crush from the past might be more than puppy love.
My teammates called me Grumpy Old Man.
I understood the grumpy part. It wasn't as if I was the life of the party. But I wasn't old. Geez, I was only thirty-two.
Despite the only partly correct nickname, there's two things you needed to know about me. The first, I loved my dog and would do anything for that crazy mutt.
The second thing, well, it involved my teammates' sister. The woman he told me to stay away from. What nobody knew was I have had a crush on her for years.
Why was I telling you that?
My dog was in an accident and the only one who could save him? You guessed it. My secret crush was the local veterinarian.
What did I do to thank her? I got her fired. Now my secret crush thought I was a grumpy jerk too.
