Kirby Litman has been abandoned by everyone in his life at one time or another since childhood. And when his cheating ex drops their baby girl in his lap and leaves the country, he vows he won’t abandon his daughter, Celeste, like he was. Between parenting, hockey, and mentoring three brand-new young players, he doesn’t have much time for himself. Though, when Jaylin Raventorn crosses his path again, he wants to stop the clock for her.

Jaylin has had her eye on Kirby from the first moment they met over a year ago, but his surprise fatherhood threw their plans into the penalty box. Now that he’s back in play—and with a cute new teammate to boot—Jaylin is as eager as Kirby to pick up where they left off.

But will the love-’em-and-leave-’em lawyer be able to let go of her fears to build a future with the man who’s always been left behind? Or will the hard hit from their pasts be too much for them to overcome?


Single dad yumminess! With book three in her IceCats hockey series, Toni Aleo delights us with all of the adorableness of Kirby and his baby girl. I adored him, I loved Jaylin and I just couldn’t put this book down from start until finish. Looking forward to more in the series!

Jaylin is a strong willed, confident attorney who doesn’t let her guard down easily so when the sole man to have gotten through her shell comes into her life again, she can’t resist succumbing to him.

Kirby is such a good guy! He’s career oriented, but his baby girl means everything to him and he will put her first always.

I highly recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who loves a good hockey romance filled with bits of the game and lots of the passion flowing off of the ice.
