One wrongful arrest ruined Kris Xappa's image—and made his NHL team look bad. Now, with orders to keep his head down, the last thing he needs is to develop feelings for his younger teammate—and best friend's brother. The fact that he can't stop thinking about their one illicit kiss doesn't mean anything.
Rory Stanton is perfectly capable of taking care of himself and doesn't need his brother's best friend keeping an eye on him. Sure, he likes having Kris's attention, but he'd rather have it for entirely different reasons. Too bad that one kiss they shared wasn't enough to convince Kris to take a chance on him.
When an injury lands Rory in Kris's care, will these teammates be able to see past the obstacles to become a two-man team?

Charming, likable characters mired in exhausting, excessive angst and bland melodrama result in a tedious entry in an otherwise enjoyable and winning series. More dessert waffles and fewer veggies would have made for a more engaging reading experience.
