I’m the number one goalie for the Bay City Brawlers Hockey Team. We only have one more game until the Stanley Cup and it’s ours. We have to win because this will be my last game. At thirty-five I’m done. Done with the bullshit fights. Done with the pain that will now be with me for the rest of my life. And that’s what I finally want. A life.
She walks back into my life uninvited. The little stepsister I haven’t seen in five years. Sexy, unattainable eighteen years old and not for me. Except she still follows me around and there’s a connection I can’t ignore.
I’ve always been in love with Billy Wallace. Ever since his dad married my mom when I was four. Now I’m twenty-one and know what I want. And I’m going to get him and he can’t ignore me. He can’t ignore our connection and I won’t fail.
