When my husband died, I never thought I would find love again.
I definitely didn’t think I would find it in the arms of my younger best friend. Why would the hunky hockey player want anything to do with me? I’m a stressed out writer with a lot of baggage. Any other man would say, “HARD PASS!”
But Noah was the best man I’ve ever known, and if it wasn’t for him, I might not be alive.
But am I ready to put my heart on the line again?
I’ve pined for my best friend for so long, that my teammates issued an ultimatum.
“Make your move now or one of us will ask her out.”
They are just trying to push me, besides none of those jerks would ever be good enough for her. Makes me wonder if I even stand a chance.
Besides, what would a smart woman like her want with a dumb jock like me?
Get ready to meet the Philadelphia Bulldogs hockey team, in this all new-standalone novel. If you love sexy sports romances and friends-to-lovers with a HEA, this book is for you!

I sat on my bed and was startled when I heard footsteps in the other room. A dark, tall shadow came over the door, and I jumped at it, until Noah’s form stepped over the threshold into my bedroom.
He had a sheepish look on his face and he pushed his hair behind his ear. He always did that when he was nervous. Why was he nervous? It was just me. “Sorry,” he said when he saw me jump.
I rolled my eyes. “You Canadians and your apologizing.”
He grinned, but when we locked eyes, I knew then that what had happened earlier had not been my imagination. He sat on the bed beside me, and his hand cupped the back of my head. I froze at his touch and his eyes scanned my face questionably. “Is this okay?” he asked.
“Noah…” I trailed off dreamily.
“Yeah?” he whispered in a small voice.
“Noah…just f***ing kiss me already.”
He laughed and leaned over to actually listen to me for once. He pressed his lips to mine, soft at first, ghosting across mine as if he was afraid to push too hard. His hand gripped the back of my neck, and I was melting into his gentle caresses. His tongue slid over my bottom lip, and I opened to him. Letting him explore that part of me I had kept locked away for so long. His kisses matched his personality — gentle and kind. When he pulled away it felt like a moment too soon, and I saw that my hands were gripping the front of his shirt hard trying to pull him towards me down onto my bed. His eyes shot up in surprise, and I gingerly pulled away and looked down at the floor.
His finger gently lifted my chin up to look him in the eye. “Was that…okay?”
Oh my god, he was too freaking cute.
“Was it okay?” I asked confused. “The kiss?”
“That I did that.”
“Oh honey, yes…” I whispered huskily.
He grinned at me, and I think it was the biggest smile I had ever seen him wear. I wanted to make him feel that way all the time. To have that badge of honor that I was the reason his eyes twinkled brightly when he smiled.
