Shayne thinks he has nothing left to lose…
On his way home after losing his job, Shayne’s bad day goes farther downhill when a truck slams into him. The sexy man who pulls him from the wreckage, seeing him at his lowest, is either the best or worst thing to happen to Shayne in a long time.
While Lincoln feels guilty for totaling Shayne’s car, he can’t regret having met the man. Something about Shayne calls to him on a new level and brings out a side in him even Lincoln can’t explain.
When these two opposites collide it’s only a matter a time before one falls.
Shayne’s first love will always be hockey. With the out-of-work goalie on the hunt for a new team, Lincoln knows their time together is short-lived. It’ll take a veteran player to sneak past the guard on Lincoln’s heart, but Shayne is up for the fight.
This one didn’t blow me away, it was far too short and insta-lovey for that, but it left me intrigued enough to read the sequels. Maybe they will contain more of Shayne and Lincoln’s relationship. They ended on a firm HFN, but I just have to have a HEA for a book to end right.
Also, I kept getting the characters all mixed up in my head, and I don’t think that’s my old lady brain coming out to play. Which guy is the cop? Which is the hockey player? Who is getting arrested and for what reason? How does Grady know Ryker? Huh? Etc.
CAN BE READ AS A STANDALONE.
