My brother's best friend, NHL god Easton Scotch, has always seen me as a kid. Now, I'm his new roommate and I'm determined to show him that Claire Merrick is all grown up.

Boston Hawks left wing and bad boy personified, Easton is untouchable, reckless, and sexier than any one man ought to be. He has a complicated past, makes questionable life choices, and doesn't want anyone growing too close. Least of all me.

East makes himself clear on his first day out of rehab, when we become reluctant roommates. At best, I'm angling for friendship. But soon, East is lowering his guard and we're bonding.

When we cross a line there's no coming back from, he spirals, jeopardizing his recovery and my heart. If Easton is the risk taker, then why does it feel like I'm the one gambling it all?


Love when they least expect it! Our second jump into the Boston Hawks Hockey world was with a familiar face since we just met his twin brother in the first book of the series. I adored the characters and they were really sweet together, but I felt like some of the drama of the fight of his addiction was left on the table instead of knocking the wind out of a reader with emotional depth. I enjoyed them a lot none-the-less and am looking forward to more in the series!

Easton is a wounded character. He has self-destructed one too many times when he has the world at his feet, but he still has the demon of his past hanging around his neck. I enjoyed seeing him come into himself and start to see his own worth.

Claire is a sweetheart. She’s crushed on him for years, but now that he’s finally seeing her right in front of him, it freaks her out a little bit.

I recommend this book and the entire series to anyone who enjoys a close-knit group of characters revolving around a hockey world who find their love one team member at a time.
