As captain of the LA Grizzlies, Ryan ‘Ry’ Bennett’s life is all about hockey and pushing himself to the limit. A future in the major leagues would fulfill his life-long dream, but at 32, it seems like a far-off goal, especially as he watches younger, more promising players earn their chance.

Then he skates into Ry’s life.

Twenty-two year-old Alexander ‘Xander’ Harrison, a ray of sunshine, turns Ry’s world upside down. From their first clash at training camp to the late-night conversations that reveal the man beneath the surface, Ry finds himself drawn to Xander in ways he can't explain. Xander’s everything Ry’s not - carefree, optimistic, and unapologetically himself.

Ry never thought he'd find love, especially with a man. But Xander shows him that love doesn't care about expectations or pasts.

It just is.

When a league shake-up threatens to tear them apart, Ry knows he can't let go without a fight. Because in the end, love isn't about the games we play. It's about the person we choose to stand with, no matter what.

When we finally pulled apart, our foreheads resting together, I knew that this was just the beginning of something special.

“That was my first.”

Ry looked at me quizzically. “Your first?”

“My first kiss.”

“You mean with a man?”

“No, I mean my first kiss ever.” My voice trembled with what I just revealed. Would my inexperience be a deal breaker? Should I have kept my mouth shut?

His eyes widened slightly, then softened. A slow, warm smile spread across his face. “Well, I’m honored,” he said, trying to mask his obvious pleasure. “Guess I’d better make sure all your future ones are just as good, huh?”


I laughed. His adorably sweet response only made me like him more. “You’d better.”
