Adam White is many things, but a single dad was one he never saw himself becoming. He was twenty-three when the plan he had for his life crumbled at his feet. In the blink of an eye, he went from a flirtatious playboy just getting his new business up and off the ground to a struggling father of a two-year-old boy he never knew existed.
Yet somehow, Adam still accomplished what he thought was impossible. And ten years later, he doesn’t think his life can get any better. His son is his world, and his business, White Ice Training, is one of the most popular hockey training facilities in Vancouver. But in the chaos of hiring a new trainer, he stumbles upon the name of a woman he would recognize anywhere. A woman he decides right then and there he’ll do anything to convince to take the job.
One terrible game was all it took for Scarlett Carter to lose everything. After a career-ending injury destroys her chances of ever playing professional hockey again, she finds herself lost in a mess of guilt-stricken “what-ifs” and broken dreams. Moving back home to Vancouver was never in the playbook, but either was letting herself get tricked into taking a job working for a man who seems to want to stop at nothing to see her forgive the sport that broke her.
Scarlett wants to forget the hockey world, but the single dad refuses to let her move on. And the more time she spends with Adam, the harder she’s finding it to resist him and the sly grins he seems to only give her. She can’t help but wonder why he cares so much about her. And more importantly, why she can’t bring herself to make him leave her alone.
