Camden Poe is the last of The Lucky Three, the surviving Pittsburgh Titans who weren’t on the team plane the night it went down. By all outward appearances, he’s adjusted to post-crash life well but inside he’s wrestling with the guilt of living.

The catastrophe that killed the Pittsburgh Titans changed my entire world. My teammates were more than my friends—they were my brothers. I mourned their loss with the rest of the nation but then I did as I’ve been taught… I moved on. I focused on returning to the ice with the newly rebuilt team and put the tragedy behind me. Considering the circumstances, I adjusted well. Or so I thought. Now I’m plagued by nightmares of the crash and my play has suffered as a result. Facing the possibility of losing my place on the team, I need to pull myself together and fast.

My buddy and linemate, Mitch Brandt died in the crash, leaving his wife Danica and son Travis behind to pick up the pieces of their shattered family. After reconnecting with Danica at a support group meeting, I find myself inexplicably drawn to helping her and her son move forward. What starts as two friends finding solace in one another following a tragedy becomes something more, leaving us both wondering if we deserve this chance.

I feel as if I’m walking a precarious line between a man falling for an incredible woman and a man moving in on his dead friend’s wife. But one thing is crystal clear—I’ve found a peace with Danica that I wasn’t sure I’d ever have again. Now I need to find the confidence within myself to push past the insecurities and make sure she knows how important she is to me because if I don’t, I’ll lose the one thing that makes me truly complete.


Emotional, sweet and sexy all rolled into one addictive read! The eighth book in the Pittsburgh Titans series brings us the final guy of the Lucky 3, Camden Poe. This series has brought a lot of emotion to the forefront of dealing with loss, overcoming obstacles and healing as a team and I have to say I think this particular book is one of the best ones of the three players who were left behind because it deals heavily with the survivors guilt that he suffers. I enjoyed Camden and Dani a lot and felt like their story portrayed them well.

Camden is well-adjusted on the outside, but the guilt he feels subconsciously is starting to weigh heavily on his mind and his game.

Danica is a complex character. She’s healing as well as can be expected and is doing a great job raising her little boy after her world collapsed around her. I like seeing her find love again and allowing herself to enjoy life’s simple pleasures.

I highly recommend this book as well as the entire series to anyone who loves hockey romance with lots of feels and a great group of teammates who are all one big family.
