Playing in the NHL as the captain of the Arizona Rattlesnakes was my dream. Was. Attending my retirement party at the age of thirty-six? Not so much.
I don’t know what my life is supposed to look like now without hockey to challenge me. And I’m not really in the mood to celebrate: until I spot a familiar looking blonde in the hotel bar.
Olympic Gold Medallist and figure skater, Sloan Wilcox and I spent two nights together at two separate Winter Olympics closing ceremonies. Our attraction was real but our timing was never right. A classic case of the right person, wrong time.
It has to mean something that she’s here in the hotel today of all days. Doesn’t it?
All of a sudden I have a plan for my future and it involves Sloan and I doing all kinds of things together. Step one: I’ll get her to come to the party. Step two: finally get my hands and mouth all over Sloan. Step three: show her all the reasons why she shouldn’t walk away this time.
I’ve never walked away from a challenge and winning Sloan may be my greatest challenge of all.
Match Made is the prequel to Pippa Green’s new Arizona Rattlesnakes series.
