How exactly has one good deed landed me in the penalty box?
Ice Knights defenseman Zach Blackburn has come down with the flu, and my BFFâ€”his PR managerâ€”begs me to put my nursing degree to use and get him back to health. Of course she would call in a favor for the most hated man in Harbor City.
But when heâ€™s finally on the mend and Iâ€™m sneaking out of his place, everything goes sideways. Paparazzi spot me and pictures, plus accusations that I slept with him, fly faster than a hockey puck.
At first, all of Harbor City wants my bloodâ€”or to give me a girlie-girl makeover. But thenâ€¦the team finally wins a game. And now this fickle town wants me with the big jerk twenty-four seven.
Argh. I never slept with him the first time! But no one will listen. Then the grumpy bastard goes and promises to break his no-fan-appearances rule to help raise money for a free health clinicâ€”but only if Iâ€™m rink-side at every game. Thatâ€™s not a deal I can turn down.
But when the team keeps winning, and I realize thereâ€™s more to him than his bad reputation, suddenly remembering to keep my real hands off my fake date gets harder and harder to do.
