Callum Derringer was hired by the Pittsburgh Titans to help rebuild the organization after a devastating plane crash left its future unknown. Now that he’s got the team back on track, it’s time to put some effort into his own life.

When I accepted the job of general manager with the Titans, it was just the opportunity I needed to prove myself to the sports world. Unfortunately, my career isn’t the only area in which I’ve previously made mistakes and the past is about to come back in a big way.

Juniper Ryan is…complicated. Smart, funny and insanely gorgeous, she was my first love and my first heartbreak. But my loss was my stepbrother’s gain and she’s been his wife for five years now. I’ve done a decent job of putting her out of my mind but when Juniper breaks down and calls me for help, I know it’s bad. I’m gutted to learn that she was pushed into the arms of a monster.

Vowing to put our past aside, I learn dark truths about my brother and his marriage to my first love. And to make matters worse, I’m beginning to realize the feelings I once had for Juniper aren’t tucked quite as far away as I had hoped.

When things take a dangerous turn, I’m willing to put myself in the line of fire to keep my girl safe. I was a fool to walk away from Juniper the first time and I’m a man who knows better than to make the same mistake twice.


An angsty reunion of first loves is rounding out the Pittsburgh Titans hockey series from Sawyer Bennett. This has been a great series overall with ups and downs all around as turmoil led to redefining moments and connections. It’s now General Manager Callum’s turn to be in the hot seat as he reconnects with his first love and has to decide how to handle the turmoil she brings with her. The characters were easy to like and their drama was attention grabbing for sure. I felt like the timeline didn’t exactly add up with how long they dated and were apart to the ages they are now and also wanted a tad more in the follow up on his mom, etc. but overall I enjoyed their story a lot and was hooked from start to finish.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to fans of hockey romance with the team banding together in a brotherhood to support each other through thick and thin as they each find their forever love.
