It's not pretend when feelings get involved...
As a veteran defenseman for the Newport Beach Seagulls, I know what it's like to protect. Protect my net. Protect the puck. Protect my team.
I'm not even above throwing my gloves off if I need to in order to send a message to the other team.
My neighbor is a completely different story.
Chloe Summers keeps to herself and minds her own business. She's cute in that sexy librarian sort of way but I've never made a move. See, I like to keep to myself too. And relationship is not a word in my vocabulary.
But then I find out that she's in trouble.
My protective instinct kicks in.
I tell her I'll pretend to be her boyfriend in order to keep her from harm.
And then I realize she's so much more than a sexy librarian. I want her, nearly as much as I want the Stanley Cup.
And I'm so close to both, I can't f*cking take it.
The flowers all over my porch.
That was the first sign that he found me. After years of hiding, he found me.
I shouldn't be surprised. He has money, he has charm, he's even attractive.
But he's been my nightmare for five years.
It's why I don't date. I don't have many friends. I don't even say hi to my gorgeous if stoic neighbor. I know he plays for the NHL. He's probably just looking for some privacy.
But then, Art Jackman gets involved. It's not his choice. And I sure don't want him to know these things. Now, he does and I can't hide who I am anymore.
When he gives me an offer I can't refuse, I get to know Art more and I realize he's not just gorgeous, he's everything I want.
But will he even want me with my past finally catching up to me?
