Friends with benefits—it never works. Someone always ends up wanting more.
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?

Playing for keeps
Loved this book, the feelings between the characters was raw and addicting. Richard and Madison were just friends but there relationship changes. This story had me laughing, crying, and routing for a happily ever after. I love a book that is a fast read, realistic story line, endearing characters, addressing current issues, this book did all those things plus more.
Murph is so swoony!!
I've been waiting for Murph!! I didn't think anyone would top my love for Brian but Richard is all the swoon!
Murph and Madison have been friends with benefits for years but both have always been afraid to try to take it the next level. A little jealously goes a long way into getting the push into more. Their story is a quick, low angst book that I couldn't put down. From the very beginning, I've been an Eagles fan (even though I don't know anything about hockey in real life). I love Richard and Madison and I can't wait to see what's next for The Eagles players!!!

Very sweet book!!❤️
After many years of being friends with benefits, Madison and Richard both wanted more. But both were afraid to tell each other and loose their friendship.
Loved it. It was a sweet read. You see they’re both so in love with each other but afraid to make the next step.
It was a little slow building but so happy to see they get their Happily Ever After.
It was great to see the other couples in this series.
