He’s living the dream…until an injury on the ice threatens it all.
Kenton Callaghan is living his dream. A star NHL player. A sought-after spokesperson. Wanted by beautiful women. If he’s a bit lonely at times, he figures it’s a small price to pay for all the rest. But when an injury threatens to rob him of his career, Kenton has to figure out how far he’s willing to go to get things back to where they were.
She knows all about the professional sports life and has no intention of being involved in it again.
After a lot of time and hard work, Avery Walker finally has her degree in physiotherapy, and her first—and only—client, courtesy of Max Zevardi, is Emily Callaghan. The man who paid for her education through a scholarship has now hired her to work full-time with the woman. She’s grateful for the work, which is flexible enough for her to still be there for her family. It seems like the perfect job—until she meets Kenton Callaghan.
Avery has had experience with professional athletes, and it wasn’t pleasant. Knowing that Kenton will likely seek the quickest way to heal and get back to the game, she is determined to keep her distance from him. But when he turns to her for help with his rehabilitation, Avery feels obliged to help out. But just because she’s agreed for their lives to intersect professionally, it doesn’t mean that any other parts need to.
Kenton has always been up to a challenge whether it’s in his career or his personal life, and the challenge Avery is presenting him is hard to resist. He wants what she can offer him in terms of helping his recovery, but there’s something else there. An aloofness beyond her professional exterior that he wants to understand.
The last thing Avery wants is to see Kenton as anything other than a client. He’s too close to events in her past for her comfort, so keeping him at a distance is a must. There is too much at risk to take a chance, especially when she suspects that Kenton might be crossing a line she can’t tolerate.
