From the bestselling author of the Heller Brothers Hockey series comes a moving and thought-provoking novel about a college team facing hard knocks on the ice and off.
The Bayard College hockey team isn't where Jacob Flass thought he'd be a season ago. He was a rising star in the Canadian major junior league, cruising toward a spot on an NHL roster-until a single disastrous night on the town brought it all crashing down. Now he's out of options, except for playing well, studying hard, and staying away from the opposite sex. He's not supposed to be flirting with the most intriguing woman he's ever met. But how could he possibly stay away?
Skylar Lynwood's freshman year of college was a disaster. This semester she's working hard to get back to the grades her parents want to see, and she's dealing with her painful memories by doing volunteer work. There's no place in Skylar's life for parties, fun, and arrogant jocks-until Jacob melts her resistance with his easy charm and rugged smile. The deal he's offering could be a win-win: a fake relationship that will keep him out of trouble and her secrets safe . . . if they can keep their hands off each other.
