He knows every play in the book. But she’s calling the shots.
“An epic story of the one that got away—Maddox will totally surprise readers in a lovely, lovely way.”—Sawyer Bennett
I’m Maddox Ledger, all-star winger and the reason the Charlotte Strikers killed it in the playoffs. Yeah, the tabloids like to call me arrogant. A real hothead. All I see is a guy who plays to win. Wreaking havoc on the ice, breaking a few hearts—that’s all just part of the game. And I’m sure as hell not sitting on the bench.
When my teammate asks me to be in his wedding party, I can’t refuse. Lucky for me, the bridesmaid I’m paired with is the definition of eye candy, but she’s so much more than that. Lacey Easton is totally irresistible and she makes me want to be a better man. A glimpse of bare shoulder takes me back to a steamy, two-week Vegas tryst I can’t forget. One I’m eager to repeat.
Suddenly our one-night stand is turning into the sequel. Still, Lacey’s keeping secrets. She doesn’t trust me. And maybe I deserve it. But I know more than she thinks I do and there’s no chance I’m letting her get away—or letting another guy take what is mine. This time, I’m playing for keeps.

Great second chance Romance. These two met and fell in love. She was everything he needed and wanted. But she was the one who ran, afraid that it was just a matter of time until he would get bored and go back to his Playboy ways. But what Paige never counted on was that Maddox wouldn’t let her get away again. The chemistry between them jumps off the page. I never imagined that I would be Team Maddox but this story was great. Loved how hard Maddox works to win Paige over but will they make it? You will have to read to find out.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Great hockey romance and second chances.
Maddox Ledger is a professional hockey player for the Charlotte Strikers. Until recently his teammates couldn’t stand him due to inability to respect them and treat them as his friends. Maddox knows he’s had some anger issues, but that has changed since he decided to win over the love of his life, Lacey Easton. Two years prior, on a vacation to Las Vegas, he met this wonderful woman. For two weeks they were constantly together, he even convinced her to marry him. However, when he woke up the next morning after their Elvis wedding, she was gone. Hiring a private detective finally helped. Lacey was no other than the sister to the goalie in his team, Dallas. Now that Dallas and Callie are getting married and asked him to be a groomsman, Maddox has plans to make his wife see that he’s not the man she left behind.
Lacey knows she made a mistake leaving Maddox two years ago. She’s been in love with him ever since. But how can this work, he’s in Charlotte, NC and she’s in New York. Maddox is doing everything to prove to her that she is all he wants and needs. Can she trust him to be her forever.
