A rookie goalie with a secret and a handsome yet hotheaded defenseman clash in the locker room and on the ice—but their shared desire to make the playoffs might help them move from enemies to lovers.
When the goalie for the Seattle Cascades hockey team is injured while drunk driving and Alex Fanning is recruited to take his place, Alex thinks his dream has come true. But to hold on to his hopes, he must keep his vampire heritage secret as the sport moves to ban Paranormals. The sexy but infuriating defenseman Sasha Petrov won’t make that easy. The injured goalie was his best friend, and he resents Alex’s presence—maybe even enough to use his bloodline against him.
Tensions mount, but the realization that there’s more to their feelings than animosity hits both men like a punch to the gut. Alex and Sasha’s newfound friendship promises passion, but a shocking betrayal could cost them all the ground they’ve gained.

I’ve never read a hockey paranormal romance and this one is quite good. Sasha and Alex are super hot together! Lots of pining and UST!! Ofcourse there were moments I wanted to knock their heads together and scream at them to get their heads out of their asses. The misunderstandings wouldn’t have happened if only they listened to each other.
The side characters are really great! I especially loved Shawn, Alex’s bestie. He’s super supportive. And Heather was an amazing character too.
