It was just supposed to be a wild weekend – no one said anything about catching feelings.
Bridger McKelty is a self-avowed bachelor for life. Relationships? Commitment? Monogamy? No, thank you. On or off the ice, he’s known for being a player – and that reputation is just fine. What’s the point of being a professional hockey player if you can’t have the lifestyle too?
Getting involved with yet another unreliable playboy? Been there, done that. Never again. But when sparks fly and the opportunity for a no-strings-attached wild weekend with a sexy hockey player comes up, Tia Ferris can’t say no. It’s just a weekend, right? One weekend. The only rules: No strings and no feelings allowed. That’s easy enough, right? Right??!
What happens when a fling turns into an obsession that dominates his mind both on and off the ice? How far will Bridger have to go to get what he wants? Will Tia be able to hold her ground?
Come back to Astoria Bay and witness a battle of wills that will light center ice on fire! Bridger and Tia battle their feelings, trust issues, (and sometimes each other) in this frenemies-to-lovers hockey romance.
