He’s back. My small town’s hockey god and my brother’s best friend. The one who took my V-card and vanished without a word. Max Decker. Cocky, self-centered, he looks every bit the man I remember—and more. His white T-shirt clings to his powerful arms. And his hands… strong, big, and thick, reveal his well-endowed nature. Now an NHL star, Max needs a fake fiancée to seal a multi-million-dollar deal. I’m not eager to play pretend with the boy who broke my heart, but my parents are about to lose their home, and Max can save them. Our charade sparks old flames. Stolen glances sizzle with desire. But when jealousies flare, Max faces a choice: his deal or us. I should probably tell him at this point that I’m pregnant.

All too soon, her annoying childhood nemesis is wrangling her into serving as the interim entertainment director at his dinner theater, baking her one tastebud-exploding dessert after another, and taking up way too much of her headspace. Their trip down memory lane leads to a crossroads. Will she choose a second chance at love or a once-in-a-lifetime career opportunity that will take her away from home…and him…this time for good?

Adrien: I’m known as hockey’s bad boy, and it’s gotten me in trouble one too many times. Now, I’m between jobs and have to fix my rep or the most forgiving coach in the NHL won’t even take me back. That’s how I end up agreeing to something I never thought I would – become a figure skater to fulfill a deal with a woman whose reputation has her career teetering as well. Her name is Billie, and her dark looks could reduce you to nothing in seconds flat, but her curves are just as killer. Billie: I can’t stand guys like Adrian, but he is a means to an end. The deal is this: we date each other for good publicity, and we work as partners until male figure skaters are lining up tp be my partner again. It’s meant to be temporary, and at first, I can’t wait to be rid of the cocky jock. But as I dig deeper into his psyche…and his jeans…I start to blur the lines between what’s real and what’s fake.
